The triple junction concentration solar cell able to reach an efficiency up to 40% has been developed by the III-V Semiconductors Group at the Institute of Solar Energy of the Technical University of Madrid (IES-UPM).
PBR-L is a photobioreactor for concentrated microalgae biomass production, based on the technique of immobilized cells and specially designed for CO2 capture and removal of nitrogen and phosphorus (eutrophication elements) in effluents from sewage treatment. It has been developed by the Agro-Energy Group of the Technical University of Madrid (UPM, Spain) and patented by UPM.
The produced algal biomass can be used for fish farming as a source of fat and protein for fish nutrition. It can also be used as a raw material of biofuels (biodiesel, bioethanol, bio-kerosene, methane).
We propose a software that use a global Lagrangian descriptor to locate the ocean structures that predict the movement of currents and particles such as pollutants. It has the capability of summarize gigabytes of satellite data in easy to interpretate pictures.
ConecTTo is a technology develops by the Technical University of Madrid that can save between 20 and 40% the electricity bill of the buildings through the monitoring of electrical equipment in order to diagnose any abnormal or bad habits in the use of electrical appliances and propose solutions that promotes savings and energy efficiency.
Innovative electronic system able to measure and monitor environmental acidity (pH) in the air. The solution main characteristics (tested in real environments) are the low cost of production, not-energy consumption and minimum installation requirements. Initially developed as a solution for conservation of the historical - cultural heritage, the system has potential applications in the chemical, food processing and environmental industry, among others.
