Beehero helps farmers increase yields

BeeHero is developing a platform that can predict beehive disorders and mitigate colony collapse. By safeguarding the health and productivity of bees, farmers can benefit from dramatic increases in crop yield. The company provides beekeepers with sensors that are installed inside the hives to collect in-hive data and environmental information. The data is then analyzed with BeeHero's algorithms to predict beehive disorders. The system uses machine-learning technologies to build a recursive natural network that receives three types of inputs: hive state, environmental parameters, and the know-how of the commercial beekeeper.

An effective method to reduce CO2 level

Scientists are closer to finding effective ways to reduce CO2 levels - a vital part of responding to climate change and energy efficiency challenges. A researchers' team led by Professor Osamu Ishitani at the Tokyo Institute of Technology (Tokyo Tech ) proposed an innovative way to achieve carbon capture using a rhenium-based electrocatalytic system that is capable of reducing low-concentration CO2 (even 1%) with high selectivity and durability. It is a new potential technology to enable direct utilization of CO2 in exhaust gases from heavy industries. The study was supported by a CREST (Core Research for Evolutional Science and Technology) program on Molecular Technology backed by the Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST).

Vtrus provides an autonomous drone for indoor industrial inspections

Vtrus, a Seattle-based spinoff, offers ABI Drone, an autonomous drone for indoor industrial inspections. The company empower people to collect data at rates and locations previously unobtainable all reducing their need to work in dangerous or hard to reach areas. Such an innovative device has a built-in 360 camera, computer vision, thermal imaging, gas and humidity sensors. The user easily sets where ABI goes and what data to collect, either on-site by grabbing the drone or remotely by using an app. This highly-technology company was founded in 2017 by Carlos Sanchez (CDO), Jonathan Lenoff (CTO), and Renato Salas-Moreno (CEO).

Carbon dots make good fertilizers

As the world population continues to balloon, agricultural experts puzzle over how farms will produce enough food to keep up with demand. One tactic involves boosting crop yields. Toward that end, scientists have developed a method to make a low-cost, biocompatible fertilizer with carbon dots derived from rapeseed pollen. However, scientists, including Yingliang Liu, Bingfu Lei and colleagues, from the South China Agricultural University, found that applying the carbon dots to hydroponically cultivated lettuce promoted its growth by 50%. The study was supported by the National Natural Science Foundation, the Science and Technology Planning Project of Guangdong Province, the Guangzhou Science & Technology Project, the Guangdong Natural Science Foundation and the Foundation for High-Level Talents in Higher Education of Guangdong Province.

Using donut-shaped lithium sulfide for higher performing batteries

There has been intense research conducted for developing lithium-sulfur batteries with high energy density because LIBs only allow for a very short travel distance per charge. However, Li-S batteries are still unable to provide a longer lifecycle due to the poor reversibility of the lithium metal cathode. However, scientists at the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) developed a lithium-sulfur battery with a doughnut-shaped active material structure showing a record lifecycle of over 600 cycles. Having higher energy density and lower production cost than a lithium-ion battery (LIB), it can be used in electric vehicles that require a longer battery life.
