Used car batteries could power farms in the developing world
As part of a Circular Economy for electric vehicle battery systems, as the number of such vehicles increases rapidly, the need to find the best way to reuse and recycle vehicle batteries becomes just as intense.
Nexeon and partners funded for new battery materials initiative
Nexeon is leading a new project to optimise coating technology for its silicon material. This approach will result in improved cell performance, and also extend the system compatibility of silicon anode materials, allowing use of lower cost electrolyte formulations and lower overall battery cell costs.
Helping kites become a clean energy high-flier
The use of kites to capture wind energy and turn it into cost-effective 'green' electricity could be coming within reach.
Field trials of raspberry harvesting robot system
University of Plymouth spinout company Fieldwork Robotics has completed initial field trials of its robot raspberry harvesting system.
ORE Catapult highlights need for more data experts in offshore wind
New research is highlighting the advantages to the UK offshore wind sector of investing in in-house data expertise to realise the benefits of the fourth industrial revolution.
CPI collaborates on smart filter project
The Centre for Process Innovation has collaborated on a project to advance the development of a low-cost, self-cleaning coating technology for industrial filter membranes. The Smart Filter project used graphene and its derivatives to create a coated filter membrane that offers increased resistance to fouling for industrial waste water treatment.
New hub launched to increase electrification in UK manufacturing
A new Hub, led by the University of Sheffield, is combining expertise in electrical machines and manufacturing for the first time, aiming to put the UK at the forefront of an electrification revolution.
Wireless EV charging could put London van fleets in the 'green lane'
UK Power Networks Services will work with UPS, High Speed 1 and WMG on an innovative new project to assess the feasibility of using wireless charging to support the use of electric vehicles in commercial fleets on London's roads.
Radioactive-busting robotic suit
If wearable technologies are the future, a radioactive-busting robotic suit could represent yet one more dramatic step into the beyond.
CPI works with Pireta to develop new smart clothing
