        href="http://www.usatoday.com/tech/science/2006-11-13-kavli-philanthropy_x.htm">Norwegian philanthropist strives to leave mark on science -
        In what seems a marked departure from funding for scientific endeavors, Fred Kavli has established a fund that supports basic research without asking for specific short-term achievements.  Targets primarily open-ended academic institution research. (USA Today; Nov. 13) (See Kavli Foundation) (Thanks Sepp Hasslberger)
      • Ethanol

      • Efficient Vehicles > PAL-V - Personal Air and Land Vehicle combines the recent “tilting car” technology of the Carver with the safest and easiest principle of flying, the gyrocopter. While on land the rotor and propeller fold away, allowing a top speed of 125 mph and fuel economy of 30 km/liter (70 US mpg) at 100 km/hr (63 mph). (Thanks John Q. Public)
      • Nanotech / Water
        > Cleaning
        Up Water with Nanomagnets
        - It may seem an unlikely way to clean up drinking water, but scientists at Rice University, in Houston, have found that nanoparticles of rust can be used to remove arsenic with a simple wave of a magnet. (MIT Technology Review; Nov. 13)

      • Global Warming > Liquid Chimney Could Reduce Global Warming - Tom Kiser, who made his reputation working on the greening of the Ford River Rouge plant, claims to have a smokestack which will capture the gases which cause greenhouse effects and turn them into harmless material, which could even be deposited in the ocean to restore coral reefs. (TreeHugger; Nov. 12)
      • Electric Vehicles > eBox - Electric car from AC Propulsion has a top speed of 95 mph, a range up to 180 miles and a 2 hour fast charge. eBox is made by converting a Toyota Scion xB to electric power that is stored in a lithium ion battery made from 5,088 small cells. (Thanks John Q. Public)
      • Conservation
        Phase Change Materials in Transit Packaging - The efficient use of phase change materials as a refrigerant and a thermal barrier allows for the safe transport of many biologic products and helps reduce package weight by up to half. These methods are used for the safe transport of vaccines, blood products and drugs among others.
      • Batteries
        href="http://www.usbcell.com/" rel=nofollow>USBCell
        - NiMH AA cell can be used in normal battery applications and can be recharged simply by plugging into a USB port. No need for a separate charger or cables when traveling. Will be available in other cell formats. (Thanks John Q. Public)

      • Solar
        href="http://www.technologyreview.com/read_article.aspx?id=17774&ch=energy">Cheap, Superefficient Solar
        - Concentrating photovoltaics are starting to enjoy their day in the sun, thanks to advances in solar cells, which absorb light and convert it into electricity, and the mirror- or lens-based concentrator systems that focus light on them. The technology could soon make solar power as cheap as electricity from the grid. (MIT Technology Review; Nov. 4)
      A worker arranges wafers that will be fabricated into superefficient solar cells. These cells could help dramatically reduce the cost of generating electricity from solar energy. (Credit: The Boeing Company)
      • EV > GM's Plug-In Hybrid Due Out 2007 - Apparently a charge from a conventional outlet will power the car’s lithium-ion batteries which will give the car 20-30 miles of pure electric range. When the batteries are depleted, a gasoline or diesel motor will kick in to charge the battery, negating the need for a transmission and otherwise simplify the drive train. (TreeHugger; Nov. 11)
      GM Hy-Wire
      • Waste to Energy > Clean Coal
        href="http://www.thermoenergy.com/" rel=nofollow>ThermoEnergy
        - Converting sewage sludge to a renewable high-energy fuel, and enabling the conversion of coal into energy with zero air emissions. The ThermoEnergy Integrated Power System combines the combustion of carbonaceous fuels with recovery of by-products using pressurized combustion and steam-hydroscrubbing. (Thanks John Q. Public)

        - The NanoSafe battery with a nano-titanate negative electrode is high powered yet safe from fire or explosion hazards seen in lithium-ion batteries. Tests confirm that after 15,000 deep charge/discharge cycles the cells still retained over 85% of their original capacity, allowing 40 years of daily charging for electric vehicles. (Thanks John Q.

        - e.g. Tango Group product line utilizes a water-powered battery that consists of two electrodes made of special alloys, which, when immersed in water, the resulting chemical reaction produces electricity. Simply refill the battery as the water evaporates - typically every 2 to 3 months. The battery has a minimum continuous life of 2 years. (PESWiki; Nov. 9) (Thanks John Q. Public)

      • Clean Coal > Clean Energy Systems - Steam generator built on rocket principles economically eliminates pollutants via the use of clean fuels from natural gas, petroleum, coal, or biomass and a pure oxygen oxidizer. It offers on-demand, zero-pollution, low cost electricity. (Thanks John Q. Public)
      • Ocean Wave > C-Wave Power - Plans to build floating wave farms in deepwater 5-20km offshore that extract energy from normal waves and dissipate the forces of storm waves. It will use neutrally buoyant walls half a wavelength apart, so that while one is moving forward the other is moving back. (Thanks John Q. Public)
      • Water / Ocean Wave > Wave-Powered Desalination - Design harnesses the renewable energy of waves to produce fresh water.  Production versions of the "desalination ducks" would be about 10 meters in diameter and 20 meters long. Each would supply water for more than 20,000 people.  (New Scientist Tech; Nov. 7) (See Slashdot discussion)
      • Silicon > Sea Sponge Technology for Silicon - In his lab facing the Pacific Ocean, Daniel Morse is learning new ways to build complex semiconductor devices for cheaper, more efficient solar cells. He has an unlikely teacher: sea sponges.  (MIT Technology Review; Nov. 7)
