Industrial Nanotech, Inc., an emerging global leader in nanotechnology, announced today that the Company's newest patented energy efficient product, Nansulate EPX, was successfully demonstrated by the Company's Turkish distributor, Kolorgen Ltd, at Textile Machinery 2008 - the 25th International Textile Machines, Side Industries, and Textile Chemicals Fair held in Istanbul May 14-18, 2008.
IBM today announced a research breakthrough in photovoltaics technology that could significantly reduce the cost of harnessing the Sun's power for electricity.
Thanks to nanostructures that scatter and channel light, University of California, San Diego electrical engineers are working toward thin-film "single junction" solar cells with the potential for nearly 45 percent sunlight-to-electricity conversion efficiencies.
The fate of carbon-based nanoparticles spilled into groundwater - and the ability of municipal filtration systems to remove the nanoparticles from drinking water - depend on subtle differences in the solution properties of the water carrying the particles, a new study has found.
Too much of a good thing could be harmful to the environment. For years, scientists have known about silver's ability to kill harmful bacteria and, recently, have used this knowledge to create consumer products containing silver nanoparticles.
A breakthrough barrier technology from Singapore A*STAR's Institute of Materials Research and Engineering (IMRE) protects sensitive devices like organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs) and solar cells from moisture 1000 times more effectively than any other technology available in the market, opening up new opportunities for the up-and-coming plastic electronics sector.
GMZ Energy today announced the availability of a breakthrough material designed for a new generation of cleaner, more energy-efficient products.
Every year, more than 30 billion water bottles are added to America's landfills, creating a mountainous environmental problem. But if research at Missouri University of Science and Technology is successful, the plastic bottles of the future could literally disappear within four months of being discarded.
Ford is leaving no particle unturned in the quest for fuel efficiency.
The Centre for Process Innovation (CPI) and the Centre of Excellence for Nano, Micro and Photonic Systems (Cenamps), have today announced that they will merge with immediate effect in a move that reinforces the region's position as the lead driver for innovation in the UK's processing sector.
