Improving zinc-air rechargeable batteries with nanoparticles

CSIC scientists at the ICMAB and the IMB-CNM are working to achieve an efficient zinc-air battery recharging. These batteries have more capacity than the lithium-ion ones, and are made of cheap materials, which are widely available in nature as well as safe.

Bendable recording device

Scientists at the ICMAB-CSIC have developed a new magnetic recording device where information is cloaked, virtually unerasable and bendable. The device can store information like a magnetic band of a credit card or a barcode, or even like other more advanced magnetic memories. Once written the information is unalterable and safe.

An edible cellulose-based material as a substitute for single-use plastic packaging

A collaboration project between researchers at the IMB-CNM-CSIC, the ICMAB-CSIC and the UAB was chosen as the most innovative in the “Generating Ideas” Program focused on Smart Food, organised by the UAB Research Park (PRUAB). The initiative Cellupack aims to develop a cellulose-based material to substitute the single-use plastics in food.

New refrigerating machine with an efficiency comparable to the electric ones

Researchers at the CSIC have developed a refrigerating machine suitable for bromide lithium-water absorption, air-air, direct expansion and Split, with a high energy efficiency. It is a sustainable and efficient alternative designed for home cooling. It is condensed by air, has less environmental impact, is easy to build and it does not generate contamination by Legionella.

Nanotechnology-based dynamic iris to correct eye diseases

Scientists from the Institute of Microelectronics of Barcelona (IMB-CNM-CSIC) and the Catalan Institute of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (ICN2) have developed a dynamic iris that adapts to light and simulates the real response of the human eye because of its composition. A polymer of ophthalmological application to implement in contact lenses or eye prostheses.
