Carbon will save the world - a Polish company has an idea to solve global problems Imagine that carbon helps desalinating and purifying water. Or that it accelerates plant growth, but at the same time limits related water consumption. And finally, that this element has impact on, among others, mechanical properties of paints. Sounds like an idea straight from the Silicon Valley? Well, this is only a part of ready solutions developed by a Polish company from the 3W world - Nanoseen. We are talking about possible cure for global crises with Bartosz Kruszka, co-founder and president of the company.
Aquaponics - the future of agriculture and saving water How to save water - one of the three basic life resources - in agriculture? Get to know aquaponics, learn what modern farms look like and how we will produce food in the future. We are talking about non-traditional agriculture with Jakub Mnich from Water Science Technology Institute in Wroclaw.
Bank Gospodarstwa Krajowego develops the 3W ecosystem with Polish companies active in the field of water, hydrogen and carbon As part of the 3W initiative, Bank Gospodarstwa Krajowego develops cooperation with Polish companies active in the field of water, hydrogen and carbon. Five companies have joined the 3W world so far: Food4Future Technologies, Nanoseen, Smart Nanotechnologies, Ścieki Polskie and WTT. The cooperation will focus on popularising the 3W concept, in particular through synergy between expert teams and through initiating projects in organisations and institutions related to water and hydrogen and carbon technologies.
Graphene - the hope and future of the technology industry According to many scientists, the future of the economy and the technological revolution will belong to carbon. Today, cyclocarbon, fullerenes, nanotubes and graphite set the direction of change followed by the whole world. Everything indicates, however, that the "first fiddle" will be played by graphene, which may soon revolutionize electronics and completely displace silicon from microprocessors. We talked with prof. dr hab. Eng. Łukasz Kaczmarek, Director of the Institute of Materials Science and Engineering at the Lodz University of Technology.
Digitization of liquid waste circulation processes - technology benefiting the environment Municipal wastewater is, in conjunction with industrial liquid waste, one of the main sources of water pollution. A report published at the end of last year by the Supreme Audit Office shows that as much as 90% of wastewater from septic tanks has been released to the environment untreated. This, however, may be changed. We are talking to Wojciech Witowski, CEO of Ścieki Polskie, discussing digital solutions that are friendly not only for the environment.
Why is carbon no longer a villain? We commonly associate carbon primarily with power generation - after all, for decades it was the primary fuel for mankind’s economic development. And although it is now giving way to other energy sources due to its carbon intensity, its role does not end with the power industry. Carbon will stay with us for longer, but not as we know it today.
