The newest and most effective type of catalyst in the world to eliminate methane

Refrigerators and air conditioners could run on an eco-friendly solid material instead of gases

Researchers from the UK and Spain have identified an eco-friendly solid that could replace the inefficient and polluting gases used in most refrigerators and air conditioners. Refrigeration and air conditioning currently devour a fifth of the energy produced worldwide, and demand for cooling is only going up. Xavier Moya When put under pressure, plastic crystals

A biotechnology product to make waterproof paper using natural enzymes

Oriol Cusola, a 29-year-old researcher from Lleida, has patented a new aqueous compound to functionalise or modify the properties of paper and any other cellulosic material. The compound uses natural enzymes instead of the traditional chemical reagents, is biodegradable, and involves no environmental impact. Most important, it is easily applicable in the production process and

Soft Mini-Robots: Micro-Robots Will Become Soft and Move Like Biological Organisms

Increasingly small robots can carry out their functions even inside the human body. No, this isn’t a sci-fi dream. The technology is almost ready. However there is still one condition they must meet to be effective: these devices need to have the same “softness” and flexibility as biological tissues. This is the opinion of scientists
