Dr. Mario Conte: “Ionic liquids make new and better-performing supercapacitators greener” Dr. Mario Conte from the Italian National Agency for New Technologies, Energy and Sustainable Economic Development, is Coordinator of the EU research project ILHYPOS.
A new supercapacitor to improve power and efficiency and increase battery life of electric vehicles
A new supercapacitor to improve power and efficiency and increase battery life of electric vehicles The search for a new clean energy increases worldwide as the sources of natural energy diminish. The transport sector is especially vulnerable, by the decline in oil reserves, at the time when number of cars on our roads steadily increases.
Tune Up Your Electric Car!
Tune Up Your Electric Car! The research team has redesigned the batteries which are now also able to store energy during braking and releasing it quickly during acceleration.
Greener Boats, Cleaner Coasts
Greener Boats, Cleaner Coasts Italian and German researchers of the European Research Project MC-WAP have replaced the diesel engines with a propulsion system based on molten carbonate fuel cells.
Innovative concepts of urban mobility
Innovative concepts of urban mobility Bologna is a fast growing city and has become a very important rail, highway and airport junction.
City Closure Increases Mobility
City Closure Increases Mobility "We decided to close the city centre for traffic”, explains Fabio Cartolano the drastic measures to liberate the city of Bologna from unbearable traffic jams.
How are we reducing greenhouse gas emissions from urban mobility?
How are we reducing greenhouse gas emissions from urban mobility? Within a project called Ticket to Kyoto five European public transport companies try to drastically reduce their CO2 emissions. These companies are Dutch RET, British GMPTE, German moBiel, French RATP and Belgian STIB.
Dr Fivos Andritsos: “No need to wait for the next disastrous shipwreck to test a new remarkable solution”
Dr Fivos Andritsos: “No need to wait for the next disastrous shipwreck to test a new remarkable solution” His aim was to develop a system that could capture the oil right at its source, before it disperses on the surface of the ocean.
Oil Spills: A Deep Water Solution
Oil Spills: A Deep Water Solution Oil is less dense than water and therefore the oil escaping the sea bed travels up to the water surface. Dr. Fivos Andritsos and his colleagues from the Joint Research Center in Ispra, Italy have now developed a reservoir which can be applied on top of the leakage.
