Seawater Algae

The seven wonders of the water-world is still a fresh news for many. But not the scientific inventions that are recently listed in creating something out of nothing. The scientists at the Tel Aviv University have stated their recent research on seawater algae. They are working on microorganisms that feed on seawater algae of which a new biodegradable plastic could be made. With new processes, they are creating plastic that

Invest

German chemical giants BASF are ready to invest billions of dollars in multiple projects in China. BASF has announced that it will be investing $10 billion in Zhanjiang situated in the Guangdong province of China. Also, BASF announced it would be doubling the size of a giant plant in Nanjing which it operates in collaboration with Sinopec, a state-owned Chinese firm. The move comes after the Chinese government is warmly

Sawdust Study Receives Funds to Make Sustainable Fuel Viable

Researchers from UMass Lowell received a grant from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE). The team is involved in the development of renewable options for fuel additives from sawdust. DOE’ Co-Optima initiative is the parent of this project. Co-Optima works on engine and fuel innovations to maximize performance. Hunter Mack leads the research. He says that the additives are obtained from sustainable materials. He hopes that this will influence consumers

Batteries

Most of our gadgets these days use lithium-particle batteries. However, a big restrain of using them is the need to charge them for some hours every day. Scientist envision a battery that would just should be charged only once per week. This theory is nearer to reality currently on account of specialists from different organizations. A group of specialists from Caltech,NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, and Honda report the development of

Synthetic Material

Researchers have found the main engineered synthetic material that becomes thicker – at the atomic dimension – as it is extended. The material, which is depicted in detail in another paper distributed in Nature Journal, is one of not many that display “auxetic” properties, which implies they grow as opposed to contracting when pulled on from various bearings. The group has been effectively looking into manufactured auxetic materials for over
