Hypercar buyers love carbon fiber, and Koenigsegg has just released the carbon-iest hypercar ever with this "naked carbon" KNC Regera, which strips away any lacquer, varnish and even the thin layer of epoxy, to present a car finished in nothing but bare carbon fiber...

A new UN report that takes stock of climate action with respect to the targets outlined in the Paris Agreement has shone new light on how we continue to come up short. Among the key points are that, after stabilizing for three years, global carbon emissions are again on the rise and have now reached record levels, prompting calls for further action in efforts to close the gap...

Carbon fiber as we know it is one of the most impressive materials in our toolkit. Its incredible lightness and strength has seen it take hold in everything from competitive cycling, to supercar design to cutting edge aircraft. But could it also play a role in energy storage? One team of scientists has been exploring the possibilities, and say that carefully engineered forms of the materia
If solving the problem of climate change was a 100-piece jigsaw puzzle, systems that suck C02 out of the air might make up one or two pieces. But as a warming planet and rising global emissions loom large, there are many who believe this unproven technology will have an important role to play – the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) among them. Climeworks is a Swiss comp
With the recent report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) painting a pretty alarming picture of the not-too-distant future, it's not enough to reduce our carbon output – we need to actively remove some from the atmosphere. Direct Air Capture systems could do the really heavy lifting, but on a smaller scale MIT engineers have developed a new material that can suck car
Vitec Imaging Solutions has announced the new Gitzo Mini Traveler, the world’s most compact and lightweight professional carbon fiber tripod.The Mini Traveler weighs just 0.58 pounds (265g) but can hold camera kits weighing up to 6.6 pounds using the head’s standard 1/4″-20 tripod mount. When not in use, the tripod folds down to 8.7 inches (22.1cm).It features one-section carbon

The creators of a new high-strength, low-weight metal alloy hope it will find a place as a midpoint between carbon fiber and lightweight aluminum. Allite Super Magnesium, an alloy previously only available to military and aerospace but now being targeted at a range of other applications, is lighter and stiffer than aluminum, but not as expensive as carbon fiber...

A new nanoscale structure of carbon has joined the family. With no curve at all, carbon atoms form a flat sheet known as graphene, and a positive curvature creates the soccer ball-like structure sometimes called buckyballs. For decades scientists have theorized that a third variation should exist – a structure with negative curvature, known as schwarzite. An international team has now foun
Last year, e-bike veteran Optibike introduced what it described as the best bike the company had ever made, and the most fun to ride. Now a special carbon fiber edition R15 has been announced, with a redesigned frame and a top motor-only speed of 28 mph...
