Graphene – the carbon game changer

What exactly is Graphene and why the fuss about it? In this film I take a look at this revolutionary new form of Carbon and see how it is being transferred from the lab into the world of industry. From it’s first real world application in bicycle tyres, to the possibilities it could unlock in […]

Rubbish power on the rise

Generating power from food waste could be the next big thing when it comes to renewable energy. A project called PlasCarb will take biogas that is generated by anaerobic digestion of food waste and split the methane and carbon dioxide found in the gas into two forms of energy. By using an innovative low energy […]

Thin film harvests energy from water

Researchers in the United States have been working on a way of harvesting energy from flowing water. A team from the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in New York has created a thin coating that could generate small amounts of electricity if water runs over it. The study, funded by a $1million grant, created 85 nanowatts of […]
