Green Energy Tech Startup from MIT

Cleaner Oil Extraction
Eden GeoPower is a green energy startup founded by MIT PhD. candidate Paris Smalls and Saudi Aramco geophysicist Ammar Alali who recently graduated from the University of Houston. They've invented a unique, electric and environmentally sound technology that provides much cleaner and environmentally sound oil and gas extraction.
Current fracking techniques rely on water under high pressure to extract oil and gas. The process generates runoff that is highly polluted and can seep into groundwater. Eden GeoPower offers a Pulsed Electric Reservoir Stimulation technology that's inexpensive and environmentally correct. The process is not water intensive and results in no water runoff and no noise pollution. It's a cleaner energy alternative in extracting gas and oil. The process results in higher extraction rates of oil and gas from fracking wells without causing environmental damage and big noise pollution.
This new technology has a significant market potential. Despite the dangerous impact of Climate Change, global demand for oil continues to grow. The current market size for US oil and gas companies is estimated at $412 billion. And North American oil and gas companies have pumped $150 billion into the development of new technologies for exploration and extraction.

Robot, Cut My Lawn Source: Husqvarna Mowers Robo Mowers Powered by Batteries - No Gas It's at the top of my robotic wish list. A robot lawn mower. No astronomical bills and upselling from lawn service companies. Just a nicely cut lawn and no hassles. Innovation seems to be knocking at the front door with news on robotic mowers. Green Robots at the Cutting Edge There's a slew of new robot mowers. Models include Worx Landroid for smaller lawns, Honda that cuts and feeds lawns, Robomow for all-purpose mowing and Husqvarna that's loaded with cell & GPS tech. These mowers aren't cheap. Prices range from $1000 to $3500. They're powered by rechargeable batteries so they're quiet. You pay more for online enhancements. And, if your lawn is loaded with trees and hills, your robot mower is going to be a lot more expensive. Grass Vacuums Robot mowers look a lot like big robot vacuums such as iRobot's Roomba. They roam and groom your lawn. Their
1st Test for CTE, Sports-Related, Traumatic Brain Injuries in the Living Source: Stock images of football players Breakthrough Research and Discoveries by Boston University Scientists CTE is the danger for players inherent in any contact sport. Repeated hard hits to and rattling of the head in the course of games taking a cumulative toll and resulting in traumatic brain injury CTE which is a fatal disease. Until now, there was no way to detect it in the living. The only reference points for doctors were changes in mood and behavior in the patient following a bad hit to the head and concussion.. But now, there is a brain scan test to detect the abnormal protein tau which is an indicator that the disease condition is present. It's an important breakthrough just announced by scientists at Boston University.

Superstar Robot Packers Source: CMC CartonWrap Superstar Customers The Italian packaging company CMC in the medieval town of Citta di Castello has robot machines at the cutting edge of 2019 filling some very big orders for big clients and it delivers. The robotic packaging machine is called CartonWrap. It can box and seal 600 to 1000 items of every shape and size every hour, 24/7, including in tailor made boxes. Clients of the automated packaging machines include Amazon, Walmart and Gucci. Big Business in Italy CMC and CartonWrap are one of 630 companies in Italy making automated packaging machines. This is the new robotic, automated economy and it is one of Italy's fastest growing industries. In fact, the sector is accelerating 9X's faster than the overall Italian economy. It's another example of robotic technology cutting time, costs and in this case packaging waste and creating a whole new avenue of global business that's a disruptor.
