The technique will use a photoreactor to simultaneously destroy pathogens as well as break down waste. The research is being led by Swansea University, which had previously developed a photoreactor that can convert waste plastic to hydrogen fuel. The same photoreactor will be used in the new project, although new photocatalysts will be developed. The collaboration also includes epidemiologists at India’s King Institute of Preventive … Read More »

Taking a risk in business or in any way of life is a scary thing to behold. For sure, we could spend hours just talking about the ‘what ifs’ or the ‘but what then’, however when taking the leap of faith into Innovation, we need guts. Guts to commit to an innovation programme.
At the end of the day, it might not work. There’s what we call a leap of faith. When we’re going into an innovation programme, we need that leap of faith when jumping from the downward curve of … Read More »

Here in the heart of sub-Saharan Africa, we find one of the most dangerous mammals on the earth today, the hippopotamus amphibious, a very rotund fellow Indeed, the hippo spends most of his time submerged to keep his skin moist and cool. Although hippos can’t actually swim, they simply glide through the water pushing themselves off other objects. And while, hippos are social beasts, loitering in schools of 10 to 30 of both males and females. They are very aggressive, incredibly dangerous. Sporting large teeth, and tusks that are used for fighting off anything considered a threat. … Read More »
Did Jules Verne ever imagine such things as data centres, 20,000 leagues (or petabytes), beneath the sea? Quite possibly not, yet here we are …
Humans have become very good at polluting vast areas of the planet by dumping waste in the sea, so perhaps it’s about time that something we put in the sea has the potential improve pollution rather than just adding to it?
Mid-September saw the completion of Microsoft’s first-ever experiment with underwater data centres off the Orkney Isles, and the reports have made for intriguing reading. The formal results have yet to be released, but initial … Read More »
Belgian scientists have found a CO2-free way to produce ammonia with plasma technology. This will enable farmers to produce environmentally friendly fertilizer themselves.
At one point back in the eighties of the last century, ammonia was the main villain in the environment. It was partly to blame for acid rain. Nowadays, scientists see it as a green energy source because you can make it easily and cheaply. Belgian scientists have developed a new method for the CO2-free production of ammonia.
Ammonia is a very important chemical building block. But it is also one of the main contributors to CO2 emissions. … Read More »
The aerospace sector can now call upon a new welding solution that reduces reworks considerably thanks to a Sheffield-based tooling specialist.
Engineers at MetLase took just two months from the major aerospace engine manufacturer’s initial enquiry to design and manufacture a customised Gas Shield for controlling argon delivery within shielded welding, preventing the age-old problem of oxygen or water vapour affecting the quality of the weld.
Using precision laser cutting technology and patented joining methodology, the Rotherham-based company identified an engineering grade metallic foam that dissipates the argon gas in a precision manner, providing an almost perfect inert atmosphere for … Read More »
The UK government is starting to draw up a plan to create a ‘world-leading’ hydrogen market that can help meet its goal to zero out greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.
As a consequence, the renewables sector is urging the government to support the rapid development of commercial green hydrogen. AeroSpace Cornwall is playing its part by awarding grant funding to companies building the future of energy. One such company, PV3 Technologies, a Cornish company on a mission to advance low carbon technologies across the world, has received vital funding from AeroSpace Cornwall to help support new research and development projects … Read More »
Using chemical biomarkers released by the brain immediately after a head injury occurs, researchers are able to pinpoint when patients need urgent medical attention. This saves time in delivering vital treatment and avoids patients undergoing unnecessary tests where no injury has occurred.
The technique was developed by a multi-disciplinary team of researchers in the group of Advanced Nanomaterials, Structures, and Applications (ANMSA) led by Dr Goldberg Oppenheimer at the University of Birmingham.
Following a proof-of-concept study, the group has now completed Innovate UK’s commercialisation programme, iCURE, to identify commercialisation routes for the technique, identifying potential partners across eight countries.

The UK’s first sea-going electric ferry has set sail for the first time in Plymouth.
The e-Voyager vessel uses repurposed Nissan Leaf batteries, and an advanced electric motor, which replaces the traditional diesel engine.
The green ferry will undergo rigorous running trials, before carrying passengers on ferry routes from April 2021.
The project was designed and developed by the cruising, ferry, and fishing company Plymouth Boat Trips (PBT), the boatbuilder Voyager Marine in partnership with the University of Plymouth, the University of Exeter, the manufacturer Teignbridge Propellers and the engineering technology company EV Parts.
Scientists from the University of Plymouth … Read More »
