With increased interest in climate-neutral technologies, it is clear that storage of hydrogen is an area of significant, and increasing, research and development activity resulting in rapid growth in patent applications for hydrogen storage.
We are pleased to introduce our new newsletter, Sustainable Future: Exploring innovations for the Energy Transition and Circular Economy.
This week, we learned that questions relating to the use of post-filed data/evidence to support a technical effect will be referred to the Enlarged Board of Appeal.
Last month, LanzaTech announced a partnership with the athletic clothing retailer Lululemon to create a fabric using recycled carbon emissions.
Reddie & Grose LLP recently participated in London Climate Action Week, delivering a presentation entitled “Innovations for a Sustainable Lifestyle”. Rather than focussing on large-scale global or societal technological fixes, we very much wanted to highlight the changes that individuals could make in their own lives to be better ancestors to future generations. The presentation focussed on innovation in four areas of our everyday lives – food, fashion, home and plastics – and discussed ways in which innovation can help us reduce our carbon footprint and impact on the planet.
Products and processes in the chemistry and material science fields are often defined using parameters. Sometimes a parametric definition is the only way in which to define the property of a substance or in some cases the substance itself. For example, a new crystalline form of a compound is often defined with reference to peak values from an x-ray diffraction spectra. The viscosity of a liquid reactant may be critical to the performance of an industrial synthesis process.
The first long-haul flight powered by biofuels took off on 18th May 2021. An Air France-KLM flight from Paris to Montreal used a mix of conventional jet fuel and a sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) made from used cooking oils. Also, the UK Government has recently announced that it will mandate the introduction of E10 fuel (petrol containing up to 10% of sustainable bioethanol) from September this year
