Convert CO2 to fuels

Chemists have figured out a new and more efficient way to convert CO2 (carbon dioxide) to create carbon-based fuels. In chemical reactions performed in the lab, the team has identified a new additive that helps selectively convert CO2 into fuels containing multiple...

Weed Killing Robot

The weed killing robot robot works without being controlled by a human operator. It covers the ground just by getting its bearings and positioning itself with the help of its camera, GPS RTK and sensors. Its system of vision enables it to follow crop rows, and to...

AI system outperforms dermatologists

An AI artificial intelligence system outperformed dermatologists at detecting skin cancer in a study that compared the analyses of doctors with the analyses of an artificial intelligence system. The goal of the study was to create better and faster diagnostics....

A Rotor Sail Saves up to 20% on Fuels

A rotor sail has the potential to generate fuel savings of up to 20% with multiple rotor sails and operating in areas with favorable wind conditions.Maritime transport emits around 1.000 million tonnes of CO2 annually and is responsible for 2,5% of global greenhouse...

Precision agriculture startup

Precision agriculture can increase efficiency and sustainability of farming and this is needed because of the increasing population and the decreasing surface for agriculture. A startup has developed an advanced solution for mapping and analysing farmland. It works...

Water purification

A water purification startup developed sorbents to remove dissolved heavy metals from aqueous streams. Their material reduces the concentration of sixteen toxic and precious heavy metals in water ten times more efficiently than competing technologies. The water...

Rooftop wooden houses

An architecture design competition in Europe came up with the interesting idea of rooftop wooden houses. Since most cities have a shortage of affordable housing, the rooftop wooden houses make sense. The use of a natural building material like wood also provides a...

Antibiotic Resistance Test

A new antibiotic resistance test identifies antibiotic-resistant bacteria in as little as 30 minutes. This could help turn the tide by allowing medical professionals to better choose which antibiotics to treat an infection with. The discovery of antibiotics changed...

Concrete Recycling

The process of making concrete from sand, gravel, cement and water is irreversible. Or not? A new concrete recycling machine is able to split concrete into sand, gravel and cement that can be reused as separate parts. More than 30% of the cement in concrete never...

Pop-up car charger

This car charger is a pop-up EV charge point operated by an app for residential streets that retracts underground when not in use, minimising the impact on the urban environment to leave roads free of street clutter.   About us Science & Technology Today foundation is...

Self Propelling Robot

Engineers have developed a self propelling robot capable of propulsion without using any motors, servos, or power supply. Instead, these first-of-their-kind devices paddle through water as the material they are constructed from deforms with temperature changes. The...
