Department of Mechanical Engineering/National University of SingaporeComposite Membranes for Air Dehumidification to Improve Building Energy Efficiency

Department of Mechanical Engineering/National University of Singapore

A membrane-based technology to reduce air humidity has evolved. It is no ordinary air-conditioning technology. It is a first-of-its-kind foil-like membrane which sieves out water molecules at very high flux without needing heat regeneration.

It relieves the moisture condensation part of chillers to realize energy saving of 35% or more.

 

IntelliDigest LimitedAn intelligent and automated kitchen fitted anaerobic foodwaste digester

IntelliDigest Limited

We have combined knowledge spanning fields such as artificial intelligence, metagenomics, metabolomics, big data/analytics, integrated sensors and internet of things in developing IntelliAD to safely, autonomously and completely recycle foodwaste to clean energy thereby curbing current loss of up to 70% resource in food waste before it is recycled.

Artus Low Energy Air Conditioning is an innovative and proven new product that enables a step-change reduction in the cooling energy required by buildings (a substantial portion of our country’s energy usage) in a beautifully-engineered package that offers significant benefits to the whole supply chain – developers, operators, installers, designers.

 

UK Power NetworksCable Canary to predict High Voltage Transition Joint cable failure

UK Power Networks

Certain cable joints within electricity substations can fail unexpectedly, meaning engineers can only work safely on them for short periods of time. This smart device called "Cable Canary" can monitor the health of HV cable joints and predict its potential failure allowing a planned intervention avoiding joint failure and harm.

 

Department of Engineering, University of CambridGraphene based conductive binder for activated carbon supercapacitors

Department of Engineering, University of Cambridge

Here, reduced graphene oxide is used for the first time as a multifunctional conductive binder, to fabricate activated carbon based electrodes for supercapacitors with outstanding performance. Such high performance electrodes coupled with their relatively simple, scalable and low-cost fabrication process thereby provide a clear pathway toward large-scale implementation of supercapacitors.
