Coronavirus to Particulates: Huge Market Opening Up for TAF

Coronavirus to Particulates: Huge Market Opening Up for TAF

It is well known that face masks do not protect you from bacteria and certainly not from the latest coronavirus. They stop you emitting as much when you sneeze. Beyond infection, there is increasing concern about fine particulates in the air, now proven to pass through your whole body. These are no longer seen as leading to only respiratory diseases and heart failure. Research now links them to depression, birth problems and more. \r\n\r\nHow can we make more effective face masks and air filters generally?

Alphabet Drops Makani Power Generating Kite Business, Shell Remains

Alphabet Drops Makani Power Generating Kite Business, Shell Remains

Makani was founded in 2006 by a group of kitesurfers who were curious about the potential for kites to unlock wind energy in more places around the globe. Makani spent the past seven years at Alphabet, during which time the technology advanced from a 20kW demonstrator kite, to a utility-scale kite capable of generating 600kW.

New Green Technology Generates Electricity "Out of Thin Air"

New Green Technology Generates Electricity "Out of Thin Air"

Electrical engineers and microbiologists have created a device they call an 'Air-gen' or air-powered generator, with electrically conductive protein nanowires produced by the microbe Geobacter. The Air-gen connects electrodes to the protein nanowires in such a way that electrical current is generated from the water vapor naturally present in the atmosphere.
