State-of-the-art robotic solutions that help users push the boundaries of monitoring and intervention in remote and hostile environments. Specialising in light-weight robotic arms for Unmanned Underwater Vehicles (UUVs), Blueprint Lab develops systems that are reliable and field-proven, delivering cost savings and improving safety for militaries, the oil and gas-industry, and scientific communities.
Researchers at the Institute of Industrial Science, a part of The University of Tokyo, have developed a new procedure for recycling concrete with the addition of discarded wood. They found that the correct proportion of inputs can yield a new building material with a bending strength superior to that of the original concrete.This research may help drastically reduce construction costs, as well as slash carbon emissions.Concrete consists of two parts, aggregate-- gravel and
crushed stone--and cement. It's the production of cement that is blamed for a
large amount of the carbon dioxide humans release into the atmosphere.
