Developed: Biodegradable, paper-based battery more efficient than previously possible 9.8.2018 DNA: India
Scientists have created a biodegradable, paper-based battery that is more efficient than previously possible, and could help reduce electronic waste generated in the future. For years, there has been excitement in the scientific community about the possibility of paper-based batteries as an eco-friendly alternative. However, the proposed designs were never quite powerful enough, they were difficult to produce and it was questionable whether they were really biodegradable. The biobattery, developed by researchers from Binghamton University in the US, uses a hybrid of paper and engineered polymers. The polymers - poly (amic) acid and poly (pyromellitic dianhydride-p-phenylenediamine) - were the key to giving the batteries biodegrading properties. "There's been a dramatic increase in electronic waste and this may be an excellent way to start reducing that," said Seokheun Choi, associate professor at Binghamton University. "Our hybrid paper battery exhibited a much higher power-to-cost ratio than all ...

AC industry sweats on high GST rate 5.8.2018 DNA: Top News
The cooling products (room air-conditioner and refrigerator) market in India witnessed several challenges during fiscal 2018. While implementation of goods and services tax (GST) resulted in a market frenzy to liquidate pre-GST stocks, industry players faced another issue of a change in energy efficiency ratings. The former forced cooling product makers to heavily discount their unsold inventory while the latter resulted in a pricing issue between old and new (energy labelled) stocks in the market. The overall market has gradually stabilised post the two challenges even as cooling products taxed at the highest bracket still lingered in the minds of Indian and multinational companies. While the recent decision by the GST Council to bring refrigerators in the 18% tax slab brought cheers in the market, players in the room air-conditioner (RAC) industry have been left high and dry as they are still taxed in the 28% bracket. Adding to the woes of RAC makers was the uncertain weather conditions that lead to ...
