Innovative Sustainable Cooling Technologies from Israel
As the Earth’s temperatures keep soaring upwards, cooling technologies are fast becoming one of the most sought-after solutions. But the high energy consumption required for cooling in turn adds on to pollution and overall heating of the planet. To escape this vicious cycle, the need of the hour is sustainable, energy efficient cooling technologies and energy management systems. Israel has always been at the forefront, whenever it came to innovating and coming up with cutting edge technology as solutions to difficult problems in various industry sectors.Read on and browse the 10 innovative Israeli companies with future ideas: https://israeltrade.org.au/2021/08/09/innovative-sustainable-cooling-technologies-from-israel/

The living concrete which could heal itself
The team from the University of Colorado Boulder is saying that they are working on the self healing concrete which can heal itself of the cracks and damages. This concrete is made up of sand, gel and bacteria, which is also named Living Concrete as it is capable of self-healing and is more environmentally friendly than concrete – which is the second most-consumed material on Earth after water.It “heal their own cracks, suck up dangerous toxins from the air or even glow on command”.source: https://www.sciencefocus.com/future-technology/future-technology-22-ideas-about-to-change-our-world/

Electric highways - the most efficient path to decarbonise trucks
Another option to reduce transport emissions: connecting electric trucks to overhead power lines on electrified highways. Australia's transport emission reduction is being neglected. So why not start with the most energy-efficient route to zero-emission road freight. The technology is being tested in Germany and Sweden. This article suggests the biggest hurdle to large-scale rollout is the initial infrastructure. In Australia currently the biggest hurdle is an absence of government policy:investmenthttps://www.cleanenergywire.org/factsheets/electric-highways-offer-most-efficient-path-decarbonise-trucksAlso hear Prof Lachlan Blackhall on Australia's energy security issues Tues 10th August 6pm:

Israel's Technology Ideas to Combat Global Climate Change
2020’s record heatwaves and storms confirm what scientists have long predicted: climate change is well underway and threatens unparalleled destruction.Enter Israel and Hydrogen Technology. When Hydrogen is burned and converted into electricity using a fuel cell, the only by-product of the process is water. There are no destructive Co2 emissions, and one kilogram of hydrogen has as much energy as a gallon of gasoline. This makes hydrogen the ideal replacement for fossil fuels and combatting climate change. Clean Hydrogen is a game-changer - learn about the Israeli companies operating in this arena: https://israeltrade.org.au/2021/07/15/israeli-technology-advancements-to-combat-global-climate-change/

Welcome to the 'Climate Club' for COP26 - US 1st member?
The European Commission has just introduced a set of 12 proposals—calling it “Fit for 55″, that is 55% emission reduction by 2030. Some policy analysts are suggesting this will create a “climate club“— essentially an exemption from the tariff for countries that adopt climate policies commensurate with the EU’s. The US would be the most likely first member. Also, this plan is likely to become a main point of contention at the COP26 climate summit in November—and will need to survive expected legal challenges in the World Trade Organization.https://qz.com/2033448/what-t
