Cool pavements to reduce temperatures

06California-Today-pavement-master768 (1)

In Los Angeles, where summer temperatures regularly surpass 38 degrees Celsius, or 100 degrees Fahrenheit, workers are coating streets in special grey treatments in a bid to help reduce the heat. It’s the first major city to test the technology. Normal black asphalt absorbs 80 to 95 per cent of sunlight, while the gray “cool pavement” reflects it – reducing ground temperature and urban street heat. http://www.scmp.com/news/world/united-states-canada/article/2106692/los-angeles-coating-roads-reflective-paint-beat-heat?

An army of robots to sort parcels

IMG_1986

Chinese delivery firm Shentong is leading in automation. Orange robots at the company’s sorting stations are able to identify the destination of a package through a code-scan, virtually eliminating sorting mistakes. They can sort up to 200,000 packages a day, and are self-charging, meaning they are operational 24/7. Shentong estimates its robotic sorting system is saving around 70-percent of the costs of a human-based sorting line. http://m.huffingtonpost.ca/2017/04/18/shentong-express_n_16087678.html

Overnight travel in a bus you can sleep on

IMG_1984

Cabin began making overnight trips between Los Angeles and San Francisco last month. The company’s emphasis on providing passengers with a good night’s sleep separates Cabin from other forms of transportation. Once on board you can relax on leather chairs in the bus lounge, retreat to your pod to rest or watch a movie. The buses depart around 11pm and arrive at their destination about 500 miles away the next day at 7am. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/innovations/wp/2017/08/10/can-a-better-nights-sleep-in-a-hipster-bus-replace-flying/?

Open banking to encourage FinTechs

IMG_1970

The Australian Government is conducting a review into open banking in Australia so that banks – especially the Big Four – open up their APIs and let FinTechs offer new financial products and services. In Europe, open banking has already been mandated by the European Commission. http://www.innovationaus.com/2017/08/ScoMo-to-pry-open-bank-data?

Saving sheep by milking spiders

spider-venom

Gastrointestinal parasites cost the Australian sheep industry around $400 million each year with huge implications for animal welfare. The most common way of de-worming sheep is by “drenching” them but most worm populations are now showing resistance to the drugs which are used. This drug resistance is leading scientists working with the CSIRO to look for new treatments derived from the venom of spiders. https://blog.csiro.au/sheep-parasites-spider-venom/

Lighter washing machine that reduces CO2 emissions.

halo washer

A Nottingham Trent University student has discovered a simple trick to cut the weight of washing machines, making them easier to move and more environmentally friendly. Most washing machines have a 25kg block of concrete near the top to hold the machine steady during a spin cycle. This significantly adds to the weight of the appliance. Much CO2 is released during the production of concrete and more is released by gas powered transport vehicles. This simple change would replace the heavy concrete counterweight with an empty plastic container that is filled with water when the washing machine is installed. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/technology/2017/08/04/students-simple-washing-machine-idea-could-save-thousands-tonnes

Virtual fencing to control stock

DSCN6877 (1)

This system, supported by CSIRO, works by giving audio cues to cattle through solar-powered smart collars as they approach the fence and a small electric pulse if they continue on. Over a short period of time, the cows learn to turn away when they hear the audio. If they do go as far as receiving the pulse, it’s significantly less than the shock of an electric fence, minimising any stress and ensuring welfare of the animals.  It can be used on properties to reduce expensive fencing and keep stock out of areas that are difficult to muster or control. https://blog.csiro.au/turns-can-teach-old-young-cows-new-tricks/

Seaweed farming to combat climate change

IMG_1957

Seaweeds can grow very fast – at rates more than 30 times those of land-based plants. Because they de-acidify seawater, making it easier for anything with a shell to grow, they are also the key to shellfish production. And by drawing CO₂ out of the ocean waters (thereby allowing the oceans to absorb more CO₂ from the atmosphere) they help fight climate change. https://theconversation.com/how-farming-giant-seaweed-can-feed-fish-and-fix-the-climate-81761

Vertical Farming. Turning your walls into gardens for year-round harvest.

vertical farming

In the largest agriculture-tech funding round in history, vertical farming startup “Plenty” attracted US$200 million. Some experts say the investment could make the indoor farming industry more viable as a whole. Instead of growing greens outdoors, the farm grows its food on glowing, LED-lit 20-foot-tall towers inside a former electronics distribution center in South San Francisco. The towers don’t require pesticides or natural sunlight. The technique is called indoor vertical farming. Food grows on trays or hanging modules in a climate-controlled, indoor facility. The process is revolutionary. Certain types of food could be produced year-round, anywhere, in a small space. http://www.businessinsider.com/food-investment-vertical-farming-2017-8/
