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 Solid-state Battery Surprises

New Solid-state Battery Surprises

Engineers created a new type of battery that weaves two promising battery sub-fields into a single battery. The battery uses both a solid state electrolyte and an all-silicon anode, making it a silicon all-solid-state battery. The initial rounds of tests show that the new battery is safe, long lasting, and energy dense. It holds promise for a wide range of applications from grid storage to electric vehicles.

Will We See GaN HEMTs in Electric Vehicle Power Electronics Devices?

Silicon carbide (SiC) and gallium nitride (GaN) are the new kids on the block when it comes to semiconductor power devices. Comparatively, traditional silicon has limitations in high temperature and high voltage operation, limitations important to overcome in the continuous grind for ever greater vehicle range and performance. In electric vehicle power electronics, SiC MOSFETs currently have a much greater presence than GaN HEMTs - why?
