Delft University team breaks world record for longest distance travelled in a hydrogen vehicle

The world record for the longest distance travelled in a hydrogen-powered vehicle on a single tank has been broken by a team of engineers from Delft University of Technology in a Eco-Runner XI urban concept car. Fitted with lightweight gas cylinders from AMS Composite Cylinders, the vehicle on July 5 …

#Contamination: Is global plastic pollution nearing an irreversible tipping point?

#Contamination: Is global plastic pollution nearing an irreversible tipping point?

Current rates of plastic emissions globally may trigger effects that we will not be able to reverse, argues a new study by researchers from Sweden, Norway and Germany published on July 2nd in Science. According to the authors, plastic pollution is a global threat, and actions to drastically reduce emissions of …

Solar radio signals could be used to monitor melting ice sheets

Solar radio signals could be used to monitor melting ice sheets

The sun provides a daunting source of electromagnetic disarray — chaotic, random energy emitted by the massive ball of gas arrives to Earth in a wide spectrum of radio frequencies. But in that randomness, Stanford researchers have discovered the makings of a powerful tool for monitoring ice and polar changes …

#ClimateChange: Science failed to predict flood and heat intensity

#ClimateChange: Science failed to predict flood and heat intensity

Top climate scientists have admitted they failed to predict the intensity of the German floods and the North American heat dome. They’ve correctly warned over decades that a fast-warming climate would bring worse bursts of rain and more damaging heatwaves. But they say their computers are not powerful enough to …

#Energy: Dundee start-up fires up production of Rwanda-focused solar power device

The move by SolarisKit, which is behind what it says is one of the easiest and cheapest solar thermal collectors in existence to install, comes after it graduated from Royal Bank of Scotland’s (RBS) Climate Entrepreneur Accelerator Programme. The start-up was formed in 2019 by mechanical engineer Dr Faisal Ghani after he …
