Rethinking Smart Cities: Setbacks and How to Move Forward

Ideas have moved on from a smart city being a dystopian world of sensors everywhere and people control by artificial intelligence - smart cities are primarily about progressing to water, food, and power independence and minimal transport. How to make smart cities in both deserts and the sea must be figured out.

First-Ever Climate-Friendly Tractor

First-Ever Climate-Friendly Tractor

AUGA group, Europe's largest vertically integrated organic food producer, has introduced the world's first hybrid biomethane and electric tractor for professional farm use - AUGA M1. Until now, sustainable fuel tractors available on the market have not been suitable for large-scale farm work. This is the company's first step in offering technological solutions that will help eliminate climate pollution throughout the food supply chain and foster sustainable agriculture. According to a recent study, food systems are responsible for one-third of global greenhouse gas emissions, and a large part of it is due to the use of fossil fuels in agricultural machinery. According to Kęstutis Juščius, CEO of AUGA group, the new technology, on which AUGA M1 is based, will help to create a new food production model on a global scale and reduce the environmental impact of agriculture.

New Sensor Uses Photonics to Spot Killer Fruit & Veg

New Sensor Uses Photonics to Spot Killer Fruit & Veg

A recent study shows pesticides in fruit and vegetables kill 11,000 people every year and unintentionally poison 385 million worldwide. Monitoring these foods for microscopic chemicals and harmful bacteria can take days of sending small batches off to laboratories for testing and analysis. But now, a new detector is being developed to spot minute traces of these poisonous elements with photonics to give a result in minutes.

Launch of the Largest Solar Powered Water Desalination System in Kenya

On the 22nd of September 2021, one of the largest water desalination projects, and the first of its kind in Africa will be launched in Marsabit County, Kenya. It delivers over 11,000litres of drinking water per hour, with a capacity of providing water to over 30,000 community members in a radius of 5km water points, which will be distributed through 24 fully automated water ATMs.

SpaceCows: Using AI to Tackle Feral Herds in Australia

Unmanaged feral cattle and buffaloes have a huge impact on biodiversity including land degradation, overgrazing of native vegetation, erosion and destruction to rivers and wetlands. CSIRO and Microsoft are working on the digital twin project, dubbed SpaceCows, as part of the collaborative satellite herd-tracking program.

First CRISPR-Edited Wheat Grown in Europe to be Planted This Autumn

UK research institute Rothamsted Research, a pioneer of GM crop trials since the 1990s, has been granted permission by Defra to run a series of field trials of wheat that has been genome edited. The Hertfordshire-based experiments will be the first field trials of CRISPR edited wheat anywhere in the UK or Europe.

Technology That Can Double The Power Harvested From Ocean Waves

Technology That Can Double The Power Harvested From Ocean Waves

The untapped potential of ocean wave energy is vast - it has been estimated that the power of coastal waves around the world each year is equivalent to annual global electricity production. With over 35,000 km of coastline, Australia is ideally placed to tap into this power source. Analysis shows Australia could produce twice its current electricity output by harvesting just 17% of its wave energy.

Solar-Powered Microbes to Feed the World?

An international research team has shown that using solar-panels to produce microbial protein - which is rich not just in proteins but also in other nutrients - is more sustainable, efficient and environmentally friendly than growing conventional crops. This method uses solar energy, land, nutrients, and carbon dioxide from the air.

Electrification Will Take Mines Beyond Mining

Imagine mines with so much electricity production and storage that they do far more downstream processing. As reserves deplete, many will even transition to being zero-emission power stations and electricity storage for local communities and industry or even national grids. The cost of making-good becomes income from reinvention. That is the untold story of mining electrification, beyond the vital safety, greening, and cost reduction of electrics.
