Electric Flying Boat Might Transform Travelling

Electric Flying Boat Might Transform Travelling

A Norwegian company is now developing a small electric seaplane that can transform local passenger traffic on a large scale. The design of the hull is currently being tested in SINTEF's towing tank in Trondheim. The Research Council of Norway is providing NOK 16 million in funding for the seaplane project. The money will be used to get a full-scale prototype in the air within three years.

$102M Funding in 6K To Accelerate Battery Material Production

$102M Funding in 6K To Accelerate Battery Material Production

6K's UniMelt system replaces a three-day, multi-step, high waste chemical co-precipitation (hydro-met) process with one that is ultra-clean and ultra-fast (as low as 2 seconds), powered by a 6000K microwave plasma. Compared to state-of-the-art CAM plants today, 6K uses half the footprint, substantially lower CapEx, and half the conversion costs or less.

Battery Swapping for Two- and Three-Wheelers in India

Battery Swapping for Two- and Three-Wheelers in India

The automotive sector in India is dominated by two-wheelers (scooters, motorbikes) and three-wheelers (autos, rickshaws) that play a significant role in last mile mobility in the country. The battery swapping model is a solution to the inadequate charging infrastructure in the country. With a large addressable market and many OEMs offering swap-capable vehicles, many start-ups are now emerging, which aim to offer swapping services.

SATAVIA Provides Contrail Prevention Capability for KLM

Aircraft-generated condensation trails, or contrails, cause surface warming amounting to two-thirds of aviation's climate impact, almost double that of direct CO2 emissions from aircraft engines. Until recently, technical challenges made contrail prevention difficult or impossible, but SATAVIA's best-in-class atmospheric modelling now enables flight plan optimisation for contrail prevention.

Drones Can Help Dairy Farms Manage Methane Emissions

About 50% of the methane that California emits comes from dairy farms. In order to meet strict climate goals, the state has proposed ways to regulate dairy methane emissions. But these efforts run up against a big problem: There isn't currently a reliable way for dairy farmers to measure the amount of methane produced on their farm.
