The natural gas technology company Energtek Inc. has introduced a three-wheel vehicle with a two-stroke engine that has been converted to run on natural gas. Over the next year, Energtek will convert thousands of similar small vehicles with two-stroke engines for identical conversions as part of the company's commercial project in the Philippines.
The converted vehicle is a Yamaha RS100T motorcycle with a locally produced sidecar. The vehicle is now operating on natural gas utilizing Energtek's absorbed natural gas technology. Two-stroke engines powered by gasoline are cheap, but they release significantly more hazardous emissions than four-stroke engines. Many governments, such as the Philippines, are attempting to limit or ban two-stroke engines powered by gasoline. The conversion to natural gas may solve the problem.
By experimenting with the photovoltaic reaction in solar cells, researchers at MIT have made a breakthrough in energy efficiency that significantly pushes the boundaries of current commercial cells on the market.
In a world that's going green, industrial operations have a problem: Their processes involve materials that are potentially toxic, flammable, corrosive, or reactive. If improperly managed, this can precipitate dangerous health and environmental consequences.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
