Realizing the Potential of Printed Piezoelectric Sensors

Realizing the Potential of Printed Piezoelectric Sensors

Commercial interest in silicon anodes and investments into start-up companies has continued through 2021 - IDTechEx estimates that $1.9B of funding has now made its way into silicon anode start-ups. Beyond investments, there has also been greater activity regarding companies beginning to license technologies, enter into supply relationships or commercialize technologies in early adopter markets, highlighting that the promise of silicon anode technology may soon be realized.

Smart Packaging for Dairy Products

Smart Packaging for Dairy Products

Researchers have developed a test to reveal bacterial contamination in dairy products well before they have a chance to reach anyone's lips. Researchers have proven a method that will allow producers, packagers and retailers to detect bacterial contamination in milk products simply by reading a signal from a test printed inside every container.

Electronic Nose on a Drone Sniffs out Wastewater Treatment Plant Stink

Electronic Nose on a Drone Sniffs out Wastewater Treatment Plant Stink

Researchers have engineered a portable electronic nose that's almost as sharp as a human nose at sniffing out the stink of wastewater treatment plants. Coupled with a drone, the lightweight e-nose can measure the concentration of different smells, predict odor intensity, and produce a real-time odor map of the plant for management.
