A ‘spongy’ liquid to clean up industrial carbon dioxide

A porous liquid composite can convert adsorbed carbon dioxide from industrial effluents to calcium carbonate

Globally, carbon dioxide emissions from human and industrial activities are rising alarmingly, and the gas is escaping into the atmosphere. Industries use physical and chemical absorption methods to capture carbon dioxide from industrial emissions. However, these methods can only capture and store carbon dioxide, which must be transported to a permanent storage site, which requires spending energy additionally.

Ramping up the energy efficiency of a wirelessly powered communication network

Researchers develop a new AI-powered algorithm that significantly improves the energy efficiency of a wirelessly powered communication network.

Radio Frequency (RF) signals are electromagnetic radiations used in wireless communication. RF signals transmit information and carry an inherent small electrical energy component. Emerging technology harvests this electrical energy and powers many wireless devices (called nodes) over a wide area, such as medical implants or IoTs.
