Rare Earths in EVs: Problems, Solutions and What Is Actually Happening

Rare Earths in EVs: Problems, Solutions and What Is Actually Happening

EVs certainly mark the path to a more environmentally friendly future, but there are still concerns around the sourcing of certain components or materials within EVs. Electric motors literally drive EVs but rely heavily on rare-earth materials. Will EV manufacturers continue to rely so heavily on rare earths going into the future?

Trio of Sustainable Power Sources for Royal Caribbean's Next Ships

Trio of Sustainable Power Sources for Royal Caribbean's Next Ships

The cruise industry's first hybrid powered ship is set to debut summer 2023 as part of Royal Caribbean Group's ultra-luxury brand Silversea Cruises. The new class of ships, known as 'Project Evolution,' will operate using a trio of power sources including a fuel cell system, battery technology and dual fuel engines using liquefied natural gas as the main fuel. This hybrid solution, using fuel cell technology, allows the ship to be free of local emissions while at port.

Zoox's Autonomous Vehicles Tested on the Streets of Seattle

Zoox has been testing their autonomous L3 vehicles in Las Vegas and the San Francisco Bay Area for more than four years. That means they know a lot about how their hardware and software behave in those climates. But the company's goal isn't to change mobility in a few states: They want to reimagine transportation for the whole world. To do that, they have to prepare for unfamiliar roads and novel conditions.
