Salt for Life – incredibly realistic salt replacement

Salt for Life will begin rolling out online and in grocery stores in August and September of this year.

Salt for Life comes from Nu-Tek Salt, a Bill Gates-endorsed company that sells salt replacement products that contain 70% less sodium than traditional salt. Unlike salt replacers of the past, Nu-Tek’s products actually taste like the real thing. Big food producers have already started using it, but soon you’ll be able to buy it yourself.

Scientists create battery using wood

University of Maryland engineers are currently working on a battery made of wood, an innovative, low-cost, environmentally friendly idea. The research team used tiny wood fibers from yellow pine trees to make test batteries — and we mean seriously tiny, the tree fibers are a thousand times thinner than a piece of paper. They use sodium rather than lithium, so the team imagines this battery working best in a large-scale environment, like for storing solar energy at a power plant.

Ceramatec have created the disk, which can hold up to 20-kilowatt hours

A small disc could be the solution for the efficient and cheap storage of the sun’s energy.  A Utah-based company has found a new way to store solar energy – in a small ceramic disk which can store more power for less. Researchers at Ceramatec have created the disk, which can hold up to 20-kilowatt hours, enough to power an entire house for a large portion of the day.
