Earthquake-resilient bridge

Rods of a super-elastic nickel-titanium alloy, commonly called Nitinol, containing about 55% nickel and bendable concrete composites have been used for the first time, in downtown Seattle, USA. A bridge that bends in a strong earthquake and not only stays standing, but remains usable, is making its debut in its first real-world application as part of a new exit bridge ramp on a busy downtown Seattle highway.

Storing solar energy

How do we store solar energy for periods when the sun doesn’t shine? We do know that solar energy can be stored by converting it into hydrogen. The problem? Current hydrogen-production technologies have given promising results in the lab, but they are still too unstable or expensive and need to be further developed to use on a commercial and large scale.

Underground mining

Ventilation currently represents around 50% of underground metal mines’ overall energy costs. Producers are looking to go deeper and still remain economic, while also eliminating fine diesel particulate matter from the underground work environment. Couple these aims with the need to achieve clean-energy targets and it’s clear that there are a myriad of drivers for the introduction of battery-powered vehicles that are engineered for life underground.
