A range of industries, including automotive applications, could be benefitted by a newly developed way to control how liquids dry on surfaces.

Researchers have published findings in the journal Nature Communications, which explores the way in which watermarks remain on solid surfaces and how to reduce their shape and size. Watermarks have been resoundingly uncontrollable, the shape and location of droplets whilst evaporating are unpredictable.

A Transparent polymer film can conduct electricity, finding use in TV, phones and computer screens after researchers of Purdue University created it using inexpensive organic materials. This is the first of its kind to be successfully produced in a transparent form, offering an alternative to often expensive inorganic materials.

A joint venture by Highview Power Storage and Viridor, have built a 5MW/15MWh energy storage demonstration project.
