Each manufactured product has some impact on the environment and produces carbon emissions. Manufacturers are using obsolete equipment can reduce that impact.
An electrode that could free up 20% more light from organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) could help extend the battery life of smartphones and laptops and other devices, making them more energy efficient.
Researchers at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) received a nearly $2 million grant from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) to create renewable fuel from sewage sludge, a byproduct of wastewater treatment that creates greenhouse gases and water pollution when dumped into landfills.
The Department of Energy is providing funding for $123.6 million in funding for 46 projects in 23 states.
Tadiran has developed bobbin-type lithium thionyl chloride (LiSOCl2) batteries that have been specially modified for use in the cold chain, which is required for transporting the COVID-19 vaccine.
An ethanol-based hand sanitizer for use during the COVID-19 pandemic has been developed by University of Missouri researchers.
North Carolina State University researchers have developed a computational model that shows how changes in the nanostructure of materials affect their conductivity, which could help improve energy storage devices for many electronic devices.
Oak Ridge National Laboratory researchers used a nanomaterial process to develop Janus structures, which may be useful in developing energy and information technologies.
Researchers at the University of Michigan, Purdue University, and the University of Liverpool in the UK have figured out a way to measure how many hot charge carrier are present in a metal nanostructure for improved energy storage and conversion.
While UPS technologies are no longer optional in critical machine designs, engineers should still have options to select the best device for brownfield or greenfield applications.
