Lab Innovations adds major names to exhibitor line-up

UK’s only event dedicated to laboratory professionals, which takes place at Birmingham’s NEC on 2 & 3 November 2016

Improving energy capacity

Using carbon nanotubes for one of the battery's electrodes produced a significant increase in the amount of power it could deliver from a given weight of material, compared to a conventional lithium-ion battery.

Revolutionising sustainable energy

A new spin-out company from The University of Nottingham is aiming to prove that far from being just a pipe dream, one new form of green energy could be in widespread use within 15 years and at a fraction of the cost of its nearest competitor.

Model system for energy crops sequenced

As researchers work towards developing sustainable sources of clean renewable energy, perennial grasses have emerged as major candidates for the commercial production of cellulosic biofuels from feedstocks.

Energy storage on paper and cloth

By dipping ordinary paper or fabric in a special ink infused with nanoparticles, an engineer has found a way to cheaply and efficiently manufacture lightweight paper batteries and supercapacitors.

Shifting cellular energy metabolism

Researchers has identified several FDA-approved agents, including an over-the-counter anti-nausea drug, that can shift cellular energy metabolism processes in animals.

Energy release during infection

Researchers have measured the energy associated with the expulsion of viral DNA, a pivotal discovery toward fully understanding the physical mechanisms that control viral infection.

New approach to clean energy

A new experiment that reproduces the magnetic fields of the Earth and other planets has yielded its first significant results.

Making it easier to save energy

Everyone wants to save energy, but there are few individuals who can tell you exactly how much energy the devices in their homes consume.

Energy of molecular hydrogen

In an important first for a promising new technology, scientists have used a quantum computer to calculate the precise energy of molecular hydrogen.

Improved charge and energy storage systems

A recent discovery made by UC San Diego engineers could lead to carbon nanotube-based supercapacitors that could do just this.

Solar energy progress and challenges

Scientists are making progress toward development of an "artificial leaf" that mimics a real leaf's chemical magic with photosynthesis.

New clean energy source

Researchers at Brigham Young University have developed a fuel cell - basically a battery with a gas tank - that harvests electricity from glucose and other sugars known as carbohydrates.

Food, energy outpace production

With the caloric needs of the planet expected to soar by 50 percent in the next 40 years, planning and investment in global agriculture will become critically important, according a new report.

Brain energy use key to understanding consciousness

High levels of brain energy are required to maintain consciousness, a finding which suggests a new way to understand the properties of this still mysterious state of being, researchers report.

Energy management technology improves fuel use efficiency

Located in the English midlands, the Worksop-based Campbell Grocery Products plant manufactures some of the company’s most recognisable brands A subsidiary of the Campbell Soup Company, its five autonomous manufacturing centres are responsible for Oxo, Homepride Cook-in-Sauces, Batchelor’s Super Noodles, the Batchelor’s Mushy Pea cannery, and the company's R&D facility.

New techniques revive Fluorescence Resonance Energy Transfer (FRET)

Fluorescence energy resonance transfer (FRET) is widely usedin the study of molecular interactions and reaction pathways.As Peter Roberts shows, the introduction of new probes and labelling techniques will make the technique and even more powerful laboratory tool.

Driers provide energy efficient solutions

Removing excess moisture in food processing and storage improves productivity, hygiene and prevents clogging of powders so reducing the rate of perish.

Energy- and resource-efficient laser-based functionalizing of temperature-sensitive substrates

As conventional coating processes are increasingly coming up against their technological limits and are often too costly, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT developed a resource-efficient process for laser-based functionalizing of nano- and microparticle materials.
