Thin film technology – the application of materials ranging between several micrometers and a fraction of a nanometer in thickness – is becoming a major focus of approaches tackling climate change.
High-temperature furnaces (HTFs) typically utilize electrical heating systems, advanced insulation materials, and innovative design to generate temperatures as high as 3000 °C.
Aquatic sciences frequently use electron microscopy, especially in the study of contaminants in water, as it can be used to observe the architecture of individual cells in the specimen
AFM is used in numerous ways in environmental sciences and has helped researchers to both develop new clean technologies and better understand the potential environmental impact of them.
To manufacture thin film devices, the thin film is coated, and the base material and any intermediary layers of the thin film must be kept incredibly clean.
This article discusses the rapid progression and role of thermoelectric ceramics in clean technology.
Local and citizen-led efforts are underway in Russia to tackle pollution in Russia. This article explores Russia's carbon emission and plastic pollution and the issues still faced in the country.
Semiconductors – the materials with electrical conductivity between conductive and insulative whose discovery and application as diodes and transistors in the twentieth century birthed the information age – have numerous roles within the clean energy industry today.
This article questions whether clean technology can be aided by quantum computing.
This article details how CO2 emissions could be monitored using quantum computing.
This product profile describes the features and applications of the ElectroGreen™–Xylene substitute for electronics.
The Stäubli Megawatt Charging System (MCS) offers rapid and effortless charging, allowing drivers to manually charge their electric heavy-duty vehicles without relying on robots or supporting machines.
Anguil's robust Vapor Combustion Unit (VCU) can handle a wide range of emission flow rates. It is as easy to use as an enclosed flare and as effective as a thermal oxidizer.
In this interview, AZoCleantech speaks to Anguil about the decarbonization of battery manufacturing,
and how to make the industry greener from testing to recycling.
In this interview, AZoCleantech talks to Olivia Madamba about Ethylene Oxide (EtO) opportunities and the new regulations proposed by the EPA.
In this exclusive interview, co-founder and CTO of PolyGone Systems, Nathanial Banks, discusses the groundbreaking technology behind the biomimetic Artificial Root microplastic collection device.
