Today on the 19th of October it’s “International Breast Cancer Day”. 1 out of 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer during their lifetime. It’s much less common, but the disease also affects about 1 in 1.000 men. In our aim to contribute to a better society the Technical Development department at Inspiralia, more precisely the materials group (one of three areas of specialization, the others being electronics and computational engineering) is involved in
With two billion people worldwide lacking access to clean and safe drinking water, joint research by Monash University, CSIRO and the University of Texas at Austin published today in Sciences Advances may offer a breakthrough new solution. It all comes down to metal-organic frameworks (MOFs), an amazing next generation material that have the largest internal surface area of any known substance. The sponge like crystals can be used to capture, store and release chemical compounds.
Imagine a world where every country has not only complied with the Paris climate agreement but has moved away from fossil fuels entirely. How would such a change affect global politics? The 20th century was dominated by coal, oil and natural gas, but a shift to zero-emission energy generation and transport means a new set of elements will become key. Solar energy, for instance, still primarily uses silicon technology, for which the major raw material
If you’re building a home or an addition to your existing home, be sure to choose eco-friendly construction materials. There are really two ways to be eco-friendly in your home building materials. The first is to choose materials that minimize environmental impact. Using recycled materials, for example, always causes less environmental impact than using new materials. If you use a wood construction with new timber, you are essentially putting in an order for trees to
