More than 95% of cast-iron in the world is still produced in blast furnaces. Modern blast furnaces are powerful units that produce tons of cast-iron daily, but they require prepared, high-quality raw materials like agglomerate cakes, steel pellets, and iron. Recycling industrial waste that contains iron (of which Russian enterprises alone produce more than 5 million tons of annually) is economically and technologically irresponsible and next-to-impossible in blast furnaces.
As the UK prepares to leave the European Union, securing appropriate funding sources for science is among the primary challenges UK-based researchers want their government to tackle. An Elsevier/Ipsos MORI survey shows that 90 percent of UK-based researchers suggest that any European research funding no longer accessible to UK academic institutions after Brexit should be replaced by equivalent UK government funding.
Could health-promoting foods be made more appealing by using digital tools to enhance consumers' eating experiences? VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland has used Virtual Reality (VR) to amplify such experiences.
The arrival of the digital world at factories led to Industry 4.0, and the new paradigm involves bringing about the permanent connection between both worlds as the key for achieving future efficiency and competitiveness. The so-called 'digital twin' has emerged out of this aim; it is a virtual model of a process or product that digitally reproduces with maximum accuracy the behavior and performance of its real version to which it is twinned.
Insilico announces a new crowd-sourced platform that will use EMOTIV's brain sensors and processing to perform the first Turing test for molecules generated using AI and to involve the medicinal chemists into AI-powered drug discovery
A device developed by CVDVale allows for the reduction of noise and pain in the treatment of caries; the company is accountable for the world's first courses in ultrasonic dentistry and now wants to apply ultrasonic technology in orthopedic surgeries.
Plans to construct a proprietary tube were first announced in autumn 2016. The task was not of the easy sort, and the works were more or less completed only this summer. Now KFU has a great piece of equipment which expands possibilities for new research in petroleum extraction enhancement.
Oxford University Press and AMSUS, the Society of Federal Health Professionals, are pleased to announce their new partnership to publish Military Medicine, the AMSUS bi-monthly scientific journal.
Cerveau Technologies, Inc. and Enigma Biomedical Group, Inc., today announced an agreement with the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) in Toronto, Ontario to support multiple projects over the next several years. These research projects are for studies of an early stage imaging agent (MK-6240) to be used in Positron Emission Tomography (PET) scans for assessing the status and progression of neurofibrillary tangles (NFTs) in the brain.
