Capacitive deionisation (CDI) is a desalination technology that removes ionic species from water through electrostatic attraction. Recently, a new CDI cell architecture has been developed with multiple channels and electrodes. Here, the ions are driven to migrate from channel to channel to desalinate the water. The inner electrodes of such a...

The current global environmental crisis has resulted in increased efforts towards more efficient and sustainable industrial processes. High-temperature heat between 150 ◦C & 400 ◦C accounts for a major part of the energy demand in industrial processes. At the same time, large quantities of waste heat are unutilised at temperatures up to 200 ...

Fresh water is a scarce source. Demand for freshwater is greater than supply, due to the increasing industrialisation of countries and the low natural supply of freshwater sources such as rivers and lakes. Contamination of these natural freshwater sources by industrial wastewater adds to the freshwater deficit. Throughout history, technologies...

In recent years, a considerable amount of research has been directed towards making energy generation more efficient to combat global warming. To aid this goal, the use of supercritical fluids (SCFs) is gaining a lot of traction. SCFs have only one phase and experience a sharp variation of thermophysical properties when heated sufficiently....

A F1 car is always in a dynamic flow when racing. The most common case would be acceleration, deceleration and turning a corner. Due to the new rule by FIA since 2021, ground effect is much more significant for F1 car. Limited by the experimental set-up of F1 teams, flow under the car and accelerating flow are hard to be measured quantitatively....

Hydrogen has emerged as a promising candidate for energy storage, offering an alternative to fossil fuels as a primary fuel source. It can be safely stored in a liquid organic hydrogen carrier (LOHC) and recovered upon demand through the reversible hydrogenation/dehydrogenation of the LOHC. Voyex, a technology-driven startup, is developing a...
