In the energy sector, these factors, are pushing clean technology markets of biomass, biofuels, solar, wind and fuel cells in the extent that cleantech is seen to be a next engine for economic growth.
Energy & Enviro Finland, 27 February 2008, describes some examples of Finnish research efforts and success stories on clean energy and environmental technology development. Many of the projects are creating know-how and technologies which can be utilized in combating climate change - globally.
Some Finnish organizations have already stepped in the most sustainable energy way. For instance, Finnish Housing Fair pioneers in ecological living a low-energy system, which is utilizing the warmth from the seabed to heat up the houses.
The heat pumps are powered by fuel cells and microturbines utilizing combustible methane gas, which is collected from the old rubbish dump. During the summer, this low-energy system can be used to cool the houses. The fair area will be almost self-sufficient in clean energy.
Finnish forest industry is also renewing in many ways. The projects include biorefineries, biofuels and combining nanotechnology and smart features with fibres for packaging. These projects open many interesting opportunities for the forest industries.
Currently, Finland is also working out a long term strategy for climate change prevention that concentrates on promoting renewable fuels, energy efficiency and energy conservation. The strategy should be completed in 2008-2009, and should include a maximum use of existing and new clean energy technologies.
An article in the Energy & Enviro Finland tells how Russia aims at using associated gas – a side-stream of oil and natural gas production - to produce energy and hydrogen. The produced hydrogen, could in the future be delivered via natural gas pipelines, and may well contribute to a future development of the European hydrogen society.

At the LASYS 2018, from June 5th to 7th, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) will be showcasing processes for the laser material processing of tomorrow in hall 4 at stand 4E75. With blown bomb shells the LZH will present first results of a research project on civil security.
At this year's LASYS, the LZH will exhibit light-based processes such as cutting, welding, ablation and structuring as well as additive manufacturing for...
There are videos on the internet that can make one marvel at technology. For example, a smartphone is casually bent around the arm or a thin-film display is rolled in all directions and with almost every diameter. From the user's point of view, this looks fantastic. From a professional point of view, however, the question arises: Is that already possible?
At Display Week 2018, scientists from the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research IAP will be demonstrating today’s technological possibilities and...
So-called quantum many-body scars allow quantum systems to stay out of equilibrium much longer, explaining experiment | Study published in Nature Physics
Recently, researchers from Harvard and MIT succeeded in trapping a record 53 atoms and individually controlling their quantum state, realizing what is called a...
The historic first detection of gravitational waves from colliding black holes far outside our galaxy opened a new window to understanding the universe. A...
A team led by Austrian experimental physicist Rainer Blatt has succeeded in characterizing the quantum entanglement of two spatially separated atoms by observing their light emission. This fundamental demonstration could lead to the development of highly sensitive optical gradiometers for the precise measurement of the gravitational field or the earth's magnetic field.
The age of quantum technology has long been heralded. Decades of research into the quantum world have led to the development of methods that make it possible...
