Did you know that the solar water pump is a system for creating hydraulic energy and that it is one of the most efficient ways of obtaining water? With this system there is no need to use fossil fuels, and one of its main advantages is that this type of…

Forest sensors to detect fires

Wednesday, 01 July 2020 11:08
In a new study, a team of scientists from Michigan State University designed and manufactured a remote forest fire detection and alarm system powered by nothing more than the movement of trees in the wind. As detailed in Advanced Functional Materials magazine, the device, known as the MC-TENG (multilayered cylindrical…
An international team led by scientists from the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) has recently developed the world's first spherical artificial eye with 3D retina. This device has better capabilities than the existing bionic eyes and in some cases, even exceed those of human eyes. The artificial…
The study is oriented towards the creation of a predictive mathematical modelling that estimates the usefulness of each food residue. The technical analysis includes the selection of the ideal industry for this purpose, as well as the economic profitability. • This is Model2bio, framed in the Horizon 2020 program and…

Cooling without electricity

Friday, 22 November 2019 09:18
The process is called radiative cooling and consists of blocking sunlight to avoid heating. At the same time it radiates infrared light that is directed to the atmosphere, cooling down the device noticeably below room temperature. It is a special isolation, called air gel, composed of polyethylene foam and that…
The production of batteries for electric vehicles is growing and Europe does not want to lose ground to Asian manufacturers. China, for example, is the producer of 61% of the batteries, so it would be interesting to start producing in Europe, and Spain could be one of the countries where…
Thermosetting compounds are formed using fiberglass, carbon or aramid, which is combined with resins such as polyesters, vinyl esters, epoxies or phenolic resins. These compounds are used in various sectors, but they stand out in particular in the manufacture of aircraft or spacecraft parts. Thanks to the research and development…
An American company, specialist in refueling and transfer technology of fluids and gases, has developed a revolutionary coupling that greatly improves handling time and safety in hose loading and unloading processes. Until now, camlock-type couplings have incorporated safety handles that require the use of both hands for closing and opening.…

Magnetism to produce hydrogen

Tuesday, 03 September 2019 10:06
One of the most promising energy sources for the environment is hydrogen generated through the division of water, a reaction in which oxygen and hydrogen are produced. Now, thanks to researchers from the Catalan Institute of Chemical Research, this hydrogen economy is closer than ever. Researchers at the Catalan Institute…
Due to climatic change, new ways for the production of sustainable fuels are being investigated and one is to use sunlight to recycle CO2, combine it with water and convert it into hydrocarbon-based fuels. However, although this concept is very attractive, this process, often called artificial photosynthesis, is not yet…
