DeWarmte HeatCycle Harnesses WasteWater to Supply Hot Water

So far, we know that global recyclists could recycle sewage water into drinking water, and hydro-power plants can produce electricity by converting water to hydrogen via a gas turbine or fuel cells. But in this case, a Netherlands-based sustainability startup claims that you can get about 40% of your total heat requirement from your wastewater!  Based in Delft, Zuid-Holland, The Netherlands, DeWarmte is a green-tech startup specializing in waste-to-product. Founded in 2019, the Netherlands-based green tech startup takes the wastewater at an average of 27 degrees Celcius from household use, such as showering, flushing, washing dishes, laundry, etc., and extracts all usable heat. The extracted heat is then used to heat fresh water, cutting down on the energy to create hot household water....

8 Well-Funded Stem Cell Startups are Manipulating your DNA

Using stem cells or their derivatives, stem cell startups champion the production of regenerative medicine, also known as stem cell therapy, to promote the repair response of diseased, dysfunctional, or injured tissue. Instead of using donor organs in short supply, stem cells are used for stem cell therapy. In the laboratory, researchers cultivate stem cells to manipulate them into specific cell types like those found in the heart, blood, or nerve tissue, such as heart muscle cells. The manipulated cells are then injected directly into the target muscle with the degenerative condition to usher in new cell development. With the advancement in stem cell technology, several medical researchers, doctors, and scientists have established stem cell startups making an innovative impact globall...

Bianca Diana Turneanu: A Cog that Welds her Space Machine

The world was talking about space ventures and preparing for Sir. Richard Branson and Jeff Bezos to hit the edge of space. During the time, I felt that only a handful of people would be lucky if the billionaires reserved space. My curiosity propelled me to discover some grassroots space mission working in anonymity somewhere on earth. I landed the Copenhagen Suborbitals. Excited, I tried out reaching out to them via Twitter (NYSE: TWTR) but was of no help. Linkedin? Yes. And there I connected with Bianca Diana Turneanu, a cog that welds the space machines at Copenhagen Suborbitals. Romania-born Bianca Diana Turneanu in Denmark welds spacecraft at a volunteer-run space organization aiming to un-billionaire-ize space! I waited no longer to run a set of questions by her reflecting on Copenh...
