As the world races to harness the potential of graphene, Polish researchers in the central city of £ód¼ have teamed up with an industrial partner to use this 21st-century wonder material to build an innovative fuel tank for cars powered by hydrogen.
Scientists at four Polish research centers are working on an ultramodern system for satellite observation of the Baltic Sea that can accurately predict changes in the weather and warn of potential environmental disasters.
The Baltic Sea’s ecosystem is on the brink of destruction, warn experts from the international environmental organization World Wildlife Fund (WWF).
Polish university researchers in the central city of £ód¼ have teamed up with an industrial partner to build an innovative—superstrong, ultralight and highly efficient—fuel tank for cars powered by hydrogen; the tank will be made from graphene, a revolutionary new material that is more than 100 times harder than steel. With the technology, hydrogen-powered cars will be able to travel 1,000 or so kilometers without stopping for refueling. The project has been financed by Poland’s National Center for Research and Development.
Polish scientists are working to make agriculture more innovative. Owners of orchards, vineyards, greenhouses and large farms will soon be able to carry out field work without being physically present there.
Arsenic is one of the strongest poisons found in nature. It is present in rocks in the earth’s crust, but it can also get into drinking water, and may then pose a serious threat to humans. A Polish researcher is building a pilot installation for cleaning water of this dangerous element in Z³oty Stok, southwestern Poland.
Mysterious knots on human proteins may have an impact on the development of Parkinson’s disease and obesity. A Polish scientist has set out to find out how these knots are formed.
Just a single foreign atom located in the vicinity of a molecule can change the spatial arrangement of its atoms. In a spectacular experiment, a group of Polish researchers working as part of an international team was able to permanently change the positions of the nuclei of hydrogen atoms in a porphycene molecule by pushing a single copper atom toward and away from the molecule.
Polish researchers are starting work to modernize concrete barriers used for protection against ionizing radiation—technology used in the construction of nuclear power plants, radioactive waste disposal facilities and cancer hospitals.
A method developed at the Polish Academy of Sciences’ Institute of Physical Chemistry in Warsaw will make it possible to determine the diffusion coefficients of chemical substances in fluids and the equilibrium constants of reactions—quickly, at low cost, and, most importantly, universally.
An innovative method for producing images of skull bones and blood vessels was among Polish medical inventions that won awards at the 62nd Brussels Innova World Exhibition of Inventions, Research and New Technologies in Brussels, Belgium, last year.
