India’s Praj collabs to offer technology for high energy renewable product

Praj Industries announced today that it has signed a Construction License Agreement (CLA) with Gevo, Inc, USA to commercialize technology for the production of Isobutanol using sugary-based feedstocks, such as juice, syrup and molasses. Praj will provide EPC services to 3rd parties using a process design package developed by Praj. This package uses Gevo’s proprietary Isobutanol biocatalyst on sugary-based feedstock. Isobutanol derived from said proprietary process is high energy renewable intermediate product that finds application in Aviation and Racing cars.

Space has gained importance in the military domain. The best way to ensure security is to have deterrence

Though the interceptor missile was tested for an altitude below 300 km as a responsible nation after multiple simulations, it has the technical capability to go beyond 1,000 km. That will cover most of the orbiting satellites in LEO. For the same purpose, no more tests are needed. The target satellite was hit with an accuracy of less than 10 cm. It was a “direct-ascent, kinetic kill” weapon.

Defense startup bags Rs 1.5 cr grant to develop new technology application

Innovations for Defense Excellence (iDEX) was launched by the central government in April last year to create an ecosystem to foster innovation and technology development in areas of defense and aerospace. The programme aims to engage with micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs), start-ups, individual innovators, research and development (R&D) institutes and academia, and provide them grant and other support to carry out R&D for solutions that have potential for future adoption.

Using Metal Complexes As Catalysts For Water Splitting

Since hydrogen can be used as an alternative clean burning fuel, there has been a need to split water efficiently. However, there are known materials that can mediate the reduction step efficiently therefore much of the current research is aimed at the oxidation half reaction also known as the Oxygen Evolution Reaction (OER). Current research focuses on understanding the mechanism of OER and development of new materials that catalyze the process.

Its about the future and not about the hype

Digital transformation will work when business leaders focus on changing the mindset of its members as well as the organizational culture and processes before they decide what digital tools to use and how to use them. The driving force behind initiatives is “what the members envision to be the future of the organization” which in turn drives the technology, not the other way around.

Polycrystalline Ceramics

Polycrystalline ceramic is a composite (Composed of a mixture of very small crystals of minerals separable by mechanical means); which is hard, brittle, heat-resistant and corrosion-resistant and whose property reflects the properties of its constituents: grains (crystallite of different minerals) and grain boundaries (areas where these crystallite meet)
