Energy Storage

Scientists at Imperial College London have invented a brand new type of membrane, which is capable of improving efforts of battery energy storage and water purification.   The new invention makes use of low-cost plastic membranes with several minute hydrophilic pores. This brand new invention offers a better version of conventional technology, which is difficult to use and very expensive.   Low Cost Polymer Membranes Offer Solution for Water Solution

Landfills

Watershed Solar Development has come into existence to offer brownfield solar energy and innovative landfill solutions for sites incorporated with ClosureTurf. Watershed Geo holds patent of this engineered system of geosynthetic turf closure.   The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has already adopted ClosureTurf, which is now the new norm for environmental performance. Meanwhile, EPA has adopted it to do away with Superfund sites, which has for long plagued the

Agricultural Wastes

In an effort to move toward a bio-based and sustainable economy, a study has successfully simplified the process of transformation of waste materials into chemicals of high value.   A collaborative effort carried out the U.K. and Brazil finds waste of wheat straw and sugar cane from agricultural processes can be converted into high value chemicals. The final product thus received from this conversion increases the value of the product

Air Pollution

A study by an international team has come up with a metal-organic framework offering a repeatable, totally reversible, and a selective capacity to catch toxic air pollutants and nitrogen dioxide. Fossil fuels and combustion of diesel produces toxic substances, says the team at University of Manchester who led this study.   it requires only air and water for conversion of captured gas into nitric acid for industrial use.
