Turning plastic grocery bags into sustainable fuel
2021-11-07 19:26 More than 300 million tons of plastic waste are produced annually, which causes serious environmental issues because of plastic's life cycle and the difficulty of eliminating it. Consequently, most plastic waste ends up in either a landfill or the ocean. A significant number of plastics break down into microplastics, which are ingested by fish and other marine life causing havoc to marine eco...
Einride launches autonomous pods and electric freight operations
2021-11-06 19:20 Swedish freight technology company Einride announced the launch of its operations in the United States. On Thursday, the company will officially begin testing its transport solutions — like its autonomous “pods,” electric trucks and “Saga” operating system — with partners like GE Appliances (GEA), Bridgestone and Oatly.

The cold did not prevent people from settling in Iberia
2021-11-05 20:07 An international group of scientists led by Manuel Alcaraz Castaño from the University of Alcala (Spain) has published a paper in the journal Scientific Reports, which presents new data on the settlement of the first modern humans on the Iberian Peninsula in the Upper Paleolithic era. Contrary to previous beliefs, the first hunter-gatherers of our species did not avoid the interior of the peninsula d...
Biologists have found out for the first time how much food the largest whales eat
2021-11-04 20:24 Today, the ocean is home to 14 species of baleen whales, including blue whales, which reach a mass of more than 150 tons. These are the largest animals on Earth, and their appetite is appropriate. Filtering water through the horn plates of the "whalebone", they consume several tons of food daily - mainly shrimp and other small marine crustaceans. However, these figures have so far been only approx...
Scientists have discovered flying skyrmions
2021-11-03 11:09 Topological optics and topological photonics have become "hot" fields of science since the 1980s after singularities in magnetic fields were discovered. And the relatively recent Nobel Prize, awarded for the discovery and study of topological features in condensed matter physics, has further spurred the interest of the scientific community, because all this opens up prospects for the implementation of non-t...
Chemists of St. Petersburg State University synthesized the smallest nanoparticles for the determination of heavy metal ions in water
2021-11-02 10:56 Scientists of St. Petersburg State University, together with specialists from Sirius University and the Academic University, have created the smallest nanoparticles of metal-organic polymers that will determine the content of heavy metals in water. Metal-organic polymers, or metal-organic framework structures (MOX), are compounds in which metal ions are interconnected by organic linker molecules. Using dif...
