Will bioprinting be an alternative to organ transplantation?

Will bioprinting be an alternative to organ transplantation?

Bioprinting has emerged during the last years as a promising technology for creating living tissues to regenerate injuries and organs. Without any doubt it is a promising technology but, how far away scientists are from creating functional tissues and organs that can be implanted in human beings? Hype or reality?

Out of the lab and into a plane: Materials making aircraft lighter

Out of the lab and into a plane: Materials making aircraft lighter

In the aerospace sector reducing the weight is one of the greatest constant priorities. Due to the high technical requirements, economic and legislative drivers, and relatively deep pockets, aerospace is often the first significant adopter of emerging lightweight materials. This article highlights some of these materials at different stages of technology readiness and suggests what their initial application will be.

A fresh way to research your market opportunities

Research your market by exhibiting at the IDTechEx Show! Conducting market research on why companies want your product is usually a necessary step for successful commercialization. It is even more important when new technologies are developed that achieve things that were not possible before: Often the applications for the technology turn out to be very different from those intended by the creator.

3D printed membranes have faster water flow than conventional filters

A 3D-printing facility to manufacture a new type of water treatment membrane. Unlike conventional membrane-manufacturing processes that use acids to make polymers porous that function as filters, Nano Sun 3D-prints millions of nanofibers layered on top of each other, compressed into a thin membrane.

Stop food waste with 3D food printing?

Stop food waste with 3D food printing?

Worldwide, around one third of all food is wasted. Growers, wholesalers, supermarkets and (governmental) institutions are working individually or collectively in their local markets on the issue of reducing the amount of wasted food. Despite the fact that wasted volumes in percentage of the total production amounts are relatively low, the numbers in kilos is an considerable amount and a great incentive to find new possibilities to lower the amount. 3D food printing could play an interesting role.
