Pollution from road traffic can be directed away from paths and back on to roads using curved barriers, according to a new UK study. Researchers from Imperial College London used airflow modelling techniques to study the movements of roadside particulates and develop a solution to minimise the exposure of pedestrians on adjacent paths. Air pollution, […] The post Curved barriers help confine traffic pollution to roads appeared first on The Engineer. [read more]
A coalition of energy companies has invested £1.6m into a programme to develop a wave-powered renewable energy system for subsea projects. Marine energy company Mocean Energy has teamed up with energy storage developer EC-OG alongside Chrysaor, Modus, OGTC and Baker Hughes to fund the demonstration of the system. Their aim is to cost-effectively lower the […] The post Wave-powered renewable energy for subsea projects appeared first on The Engineer. [read more]
Gas and liquid separation processes could be made more efficient and environmentally friendly by using intrinsically porous materials (IPMs), claim KAUST researchers. IPM materials, which can separate gases and liquids without using traditional high-temperature methods like heat-driven distillation, have been reviewed by Niveen Khashab and her team at KAUST in Saudi Arabia and their findings […] The post Energy saving solutions found in intrinsically porous materials appeared first on The Engineer.
