A new battery design that can charge an electric car in 10 mins
Electric vehicle owners may soon be able to fully charge their cars in as little as 10 minutes, thanks to a new design that heats the battery to increase the reaction rate.A current major barrier to the uptake of electric cars is the length of time it takes to charge the battery compared with filling a car with petrol.https://www.newscientist.com/article/2221740-electric-cars-could-charge-in-10-minutes-with-a-new-kind-of-battery/

A battery that can remove carbon dioxide from air
MIT engineers have created a new way to efficiently remove carbon dioxide from the air. The system can be developed commercially at low cost and has many potential applications. While there are alternative ways to remove carbon dioxide from gas, they typically only work well on carbon dioxide levels significantly higher than atmospheric concentrations and require lengthy chemical processes to ultimately remove the carbon dioxide. www.forbes.com/sites/trevornace/2019/10/30/mit-engineers-develop-battery-that-can-remove-carbon-dioxide-from-air/

Access to Drinking Water
OFF-GRID Containerised Water Treatment Plant, this unit can treat up to 28kl/day & can be scaleable to 250kl/day when run 24hrs/day. This is a solution for remote Australian Communities & Regions The Gilghi remote water unit has been installed at Gillen Bore, approximately 75km from Alice Springs in the Northern Territory and uses advanced filtering technology and is a breakthrough water solution. https://www.ampcontrolgroup.com/ampcontrol-delivers-pure-water-to-remote-community-in-the-nt/

An artificial leaf that produces clean gas
A widely-used gas that is currently produced from fossil fuels can instead be made by an ‘artificial leaf’ that uses only sunlight, carbon dioxide and water, and which could eventually be used to develop a sustainable liquid fuel alternative to petrol.www.cam.ac.uk/research/news/artificial-leaf-successfully-produces-clean-gas

Environmental innovations strengthening communities
Energy innovations are critical to reduce the poverty cycle in many communities - at Tech23 we heard of some remote Asian communities where children cycle 8km to charge a battery for 4 hours to power their light & mobiles! Okra Solar is spearheading this new approach to connect communities. Next year their goal is to connect 40K people!! In parallel, our youth is catalysing the much needed action on climate change. Vanessa & the ClimateClever team have built an app that helps schools & local communities measure, audit and remediate their carbon footprint (and save $ on their utility bills)

Value From Solid Wine Waste
‘waste to value’ technology enables on-site processing of solid wine waste to produce tartaric acid and grape sugar. These are both key ingredients in the global food manufacturing value chain. The market demand for tartaric acid alone is expected to be US$3.16 billion by 2022. Applying this technology to large-scale wine production improves production flexibility (including input cost flexibility), and generates better environmental outcomes. https://www.amgc.org.au/project/value-from-solid-wine-waste/
