Here is the November edition with a flurry of scientific news in the field of accessing drinking water, discovering new materials for improved computer memory or energy harvesting capabilities, increasing solar cells performance, converting PET bottles into insulation aerogels or CO2 into plastic monomers. As well as design projects to optimize the size to power density of motors or the weight to safety of vehicles. Not to forget the sustainability initiatives for using bridges longer with improved freight efficiency or for reducing our water footprint altogether at sustainable levels. And of course some more information on critical resources and how we should reduce our dependency on them (BMW developing engines with no rare earth… and all of us working on reducing our use of data).
Finally a special focus on the future of EVs seen from Asia:
