With water shortages on the rise, wastewater is a looming concern that leaves the world’s top minds in a constant battle to combat the inefficiency and high cost of water treatment and disposal. Most industries produce wastewater. Over 80% worldwide, and 69% in the U.S., of industry’s wastewater is not reused; posing massive issues with treatment, disposal, and environmental impact. Industry’s current response to increased regulation and wastewater treatment costs is to move to a Zero Liquid Discharge (ZLD) solution, using a variety of very expensive treatment processes to concentrate the effluent. The ZLD market alone is growing to $8.1 billion by 2025.

The cheese industry is moving toward ZLD, with its 5.3 billion pounds of brine producing Italian ...

Life for people with impairments is a bit difficult as compared to the unimpaired. Conventional wheelchairs need an extra person to move it around. Sometimes the person himself pushes the wheels which results in problems of upper body functioning. These dependency and functioning issues can be avoided by an autonomous, smart, IoT based wheelchair that is controlled by the patient’s commands. This smart wheelchair also consists of a in-built remote health monitoring system for consistent health updates. Instead of staying wired to machines in the hospital, comfortable homecare can be availed and health monitoring can also be done. The proposed system is an economic, smart and reliable alternative to other automated wheelchair products in the market.

Environmental contaminants like total petroleum hydrocarbons (TPH), polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH), and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCB) persist for decades in soils and sediments, and have been linked to cancer, immune and nervous system disorders, reproductive and developmental abnormalities, learning disorders, birth defects, and other health concerns. Traditional remediation methods are expensive and can further damage the environment. The estimated cost of remediating contaminated sites was estimated at $6-$8 billion annually in the U.S. and $425-$500 billion globally, mostly for remediating soils. Current cleanup methods include soil dredging, soil capping, and excavation. Dredging and/or excavating to remove contaminants is expensive, time consuming, and labor intensive, and risks harmful secondary effects such as damage to the ecosystem and the release of carbon ...

Oil spills occur when an offshore oil rig experiences an accident or a cargo ship capsizes. Once the oil is spilled over the surface of ocean, it is not only a disaster for marine environment, but also devastating once the spilled oil is absorbed by marine creatures and finds its way into the food chain.

ST 0IL is an intelligent spill removal fleet with its associated management system built around the idea of a fleet of mother vessel and several children vessels. When oil spills, mother vessel carries her children to the site. On arrival, the children are detached and circle around the spill for containment while the absorbent materials remove the spill. Once a child is filled, it ...

It is a bag which is non woven that can replace polythene bags. It is made by mixing paper, cloth and starch obtained from corn in a definite proportion as per desired requirements. It has enough tensile strength that to polythene bag. The variation lies at customer side i.e if he carrying dry items the paper - cloth greater ratio bag will be provided wheras if someone has to carry heavier or denser item then he will be provided with bag that has greater starch to cloth ratio.This bag will be levelled for respective purposes in it's variant.

The advantage is that they are biodegradable, appreciable tensile strength, compostable, no artificial adhesives used and no microplastics are generated.

The ...

Finger Ring!, a hand rehabilitation painting aid designed for children with cerebral palsy, allows them to create 3D paintings, helping them improve hand convulsions and insufficient tension.

It contains a finger cot, an artboard and a pigment box. The finger cot can be stained with colors and support patients to paint. According to the level of patient’s tension, they are given a series of teaching materials, such as surface textures, 3D blocks, bump paintings and story design. With the help of others, patients can carry out finger tension, hand grasp and muscle endurance rehabilitation. It can also help patients with stroke to ...

If the stomach problem caused by H. pylori is untreated, it can increase the risk of gastric disorders such as peptic ulcer disease, stomach cancer or gastric lymphoma.

HPTK is a medical kit to detect H. pylori infection. Based on the pH value of CO2 produced by H. pylori with carbon-13 urea reagent after dissolved in water, the users exhale into right/left HPTK breath collection bags, record the color changes of pH indicator before and after swallowing the reagent to compare with the universal color chart. If big difference occurs, further test is required. HPTK can prevent stomach disorders and reduce the consumption of medical ...

Umbilical Care is an L-shaped silicon cord clip used to test the bacterial infection at baby’s cord. Via the “histamine testing sticker” attached on a hollow chamber of Umbilical Care which can react with the histamine produced by bacteria, medical staff and mothers can deal with cord infection when an orange sad face is shown. It is an efficient way to prevent infection and reduce the staff’s burden. The L-shaped design allows staff to measure the safety distance to chip on, which makes the operation efficient and makes extra room for Umbilical Arterial Catheter operation in the ...

RBTT is an all-in-one blood test product from blood collection, buffer mixture, blood test strip to final interpretation. It improves the blood test strips, simplifies the process and is attached to the patient, allowing the healthcare staff to quickly determine the blood group for the patient requires emergency transfusion. Based on the utility of blood test strip and buffer solution, RBTT visualizes blood group with color and symbols to provide a simple interface, letting the users operate and interpret quickly. Extracting blood via hollow microneedles makes the workflow easier, bringing painless blood extraction experience to ...
