Comments Off on Smarter traffic light programming could help cut carbon emissions, MIT study shows

Idling cars create unnecessary greenhouse gas emissions , so common sense indicates that less time sitting in traffic would lead to a cleaner world. A new study by researchers at MIT shows how reprogramming traffic signals could lead to fewer traffic jams and a world with lower carbon emissions.

Super-efficient graphene LED bulbs to hit the stores this year

Comments Off on Super-efficient graphene LED bulbs to hit the stores this year

Graphene —everyone’s favorite super-strong carbon material—might just revolutionize the LED . A dimmable bulb is set to be launched in UK stores later this year that contains a filament-shaped LED that is coated in graphene , and promises to cut energy usage by a further 10 percent, sell at a lower price point than many LEDs, and all the while extend the life of the bulb. This all due to the fact that graphene can conduct heat and electricity more effectively than the materials currently used in LEDs. Designed by researchers at the “Home of Graphene,” The University of   Manchester , the bulb will also be the first commercially-viable product to contain graphene.
