The brewing of beer produces great quantities of leftover grain, which often ends up being processed into cattle feed. Scientists have developed a new method of extracting the protein and fiber from that waste, however, for use by humans.Continue ReadingCategory: ScienceTags: American Chemical Society, Virginia Tech, Beer, Waste, Recycling, Brewing, Protein, Fiber, Biofuel
There are energy sources all over the place, if you know where to look. Researchers at the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) have now designed new modular nanogenerators that can harvest energy from a variety of different types of motion, such as ocean waves or a person's body movements.Continue ReadingCategory: Energy, ScienceTags: Energy, Wave, Wave Power, Renewable Energy, Electricity, Ch
recent developments mean that it could soon be a reality. The post how transparent solar panels + ‘quantum dots’ could harvest energy on an architectural scale appeared first on designboom | architecture & design magazine.
As the population increasingly moves towards tech jobs, there's now a shortage of coconut harvesters in India. That's why scientists there have built a tree-climbing coconut-harvesting robot, that could perhaps someday take up the slack.Continue ReadingCategory: Robotics, TechnologyTags: Agriculture, Tree, Climbing, New Atlas Audio
When the Mekong Delta in Vietnam floods every year, farmers take their boats out and spend days harvesting water lilies. Photographer Trung Huy Pham has captured a series of beautiful overhead photos of the harvest that feature its mesmerizing patterns and colors.For generations, women have been taking small boats out onto the water in the Long An and An Giang provinces to harvest the lilies for
Last year, AI development company Cognitive Technologies installed its self-driving systems into combine harvesters operated by Russia's largest agro holding company. The pilot proved successful, and the technology will now be rolled out to 242 combines over the next year or so.Continue ReadingCategory: Urban Transport, TransportTags: Autonomous Vehicles, Farming
Found in crustacean shells, chitin is a natural polymer that has many uses once processed. Now, scientists have developed a fruit waste-based fermentation process for getting it out of those shells – and the technique results in better-quality chitin, to boot.Continue ReadingCategory: Environment, ScienceTags: Nanyang Technological University, Chitosan, Waste, Recycling, Polymer, Fermentation
Wind turbine blades can be truly enormous, reaching lengths of up to 107 m (351 ft). They often incorporate lightweight balsa wood, which may soon be easier than ever to reclaim for recycling when the blades' time is done.Continue ReadingCategory: Environment, ScienceTags: Fraunhofer, Wind turbine, Wood, Recycling
