Construction Of UK Plastic To Hydrogen Facility

construction news

Construction of the UK’s first waste plastic to hydrogen facility is well underway as it completes the Front-End Engineering Design (FEED) phase. Peel L&P Environmental and Waste2Tricity have received planning consent from Cheshire West & Chester Council to build the plant on the 54-hectare Protos site near Ellesmere Port. It will feature cutting edge technology never used in the UK before.

How Augmented Reality Is Shaping Education

augmented reality

The term Augmented Reality was first used in 1990 with the first commercial uses being in television and the military. Since then, AR technology has evolved considerably as we see it being used in Augmented Reality applications across every industry. The Augmented Reality market showed record growth in 2018 and according to Markets and Markets, the industry will be worth $61.39 billion by 2023.

Graphene For UK Highways

graphene

Graphene seems to be making headlines across various industries and Highways England has also joined in. They are partnering with the Graphene Engineering Innovation Centre (GEIC) in Manchester to investigate the use of graphene on surfaces. The idea is to find out whether adding graphene to roads and pavements could result in decreased deterioration.

It all started when Prof Sir Andre Geim and Prof Sir Kostya Novoselov first isolated the material at Manchester University in 2004. GEIC opened in December 2018 to specialise in the rapid development and upscaling of graphene and other applications for 2D materials.

Augmented Reality For Faster Construction

Augmented Reality

For some time now, many industries have taken to Augmented Reality (AR), or at least, thought about the technology. And why not as the AR market is expected to reach $60,55 billion by 2023 as more tech giants are linked to investments pushing the growth. Some of the major players involved in Augmented Reality investments and acquisitions include Google, Apple, Facebook, Samsung and Intel.

Augmented Reality is also known as spatial computing which is rapidly growing and expanding into several business and industrial applications. Spatial computing is a broad term used to describe how humans interact with computers in the same surroundings. This means that an Augmented Reality system makes it feel as if digital media is physically present thanks to interactive design and gesture.
