Background: The basic substance of the sustainable ski wax is indigo, the oldest known stable blue plant dye. One isomer of the commercially available indigo mixtures, E-Indigo, is ecologically and hygienically harmless and fits in the concept of the circular economy. This patented innovation as a lubricant on ice, snow and water can be experimentally proven to form a supra-molecular, self-organized, electrically conductive, hard, abrasion-resistant, hydrophobic sliding surface with self-healing properties.

Fatigue is a symptom of many - if not most - health ailments. It is also a precursor of illness and a monitor of treatment as many body functions work less effectively under fatigue. Yet, fatigue monitoring is underutilized in healthcare because self-reported fatigue – the prevailing method - is notoriously subjective as results are based on personal moods, circumstances at the time questions are answered and types of questions asked. The Swiss SME has identified a digital method of objectively measuring levels of fatigue through the analysis of pulse waves.

A Swiss Earth-observation company has developed an advanced Snow Monitoring System to track near real-time changes in snow cover and snow depth over time. The system is a result of 3 years full-time research and development, which was co-funded by the European Space Agency and the Swiss Space Center. It combines near real-time observations from multiple satellite constellations to map snow cover across entire mountain ranges in a 20 m spatial resolution on a daily basis.

Smart farming could become a prerequisite for future agricultural production to meet the steadily increasing global demand for food. The United Nations estimates that the world population will rise up to 9.6 billion people by 2050, with global food production expected to increase by 70% to meet the new needs. At the same time, however, agriculture is facing major challenges such as the limited availability of arable land, increasing demand for fresh water and the effects of climate change. One solution to these problems is the use of intelligent farming methods.

New process for in-situ decontamination of railway ballast, soil and glyphosate leftovers

For safety, operational and environmental requirements railway ballast and train tracks must be largely free of vegetation and organic leftovers. In addition to this, the railway ballast should be clean from organic leftovers. The common market solution to prevent and treat vegetation on railway tracks is the use of soil herbicides and leaf herbicides. However, this solution is expensive, complicated, polluting for soil and groundwater and provide a solution only for weed control.

Human activities are the major cause of soil pollution. Industrial activities including mining, smelting and manufacturing; domestic, livestock and municipal wastes; pesticides, herbicides, fertilizers used in agriculture; petroleum-derived products that are released into or break-down in the environment. In Europe, statistics relative to soil-remediation show an enormous market need. There are an estimated 2.5 million potentially contaminated sites in the European Economic Area (EEA-39), of which 45% have been identified by 2011.

Water treatment with low frequency electromagnetic resonance fields to remove biofilms from water pipes to achieve a very high level of biosecurity for livestock farming.

Population growth, climate change and limitations of natural resources mean that agriculture must become more productive, efficient and environmentally sound. Most of the branches of agricultural industry are aimed at the production of qualitative, safe and a wide range of products, and this is particularly relevant in livestock farming. One of the potential sources of animal infection is water, through which pathogens can be transferred to all the animals on a farm. It is therefore absolutely imperative that animals receive water of good quality.

Population growth, climate change and limitations of natural resources mean that agriculture must become more productive, efficient and environmentally sound. According to the United Nations (UN), the world population is expected to reach 9.7 billion by 2050, placing further strain on food production. Global agriculture is tasked with meeting this demand, with cereals as its cornerstone. The Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) believes food demand will require raising cereal production by 70% globally. As part of improving agricultural yields, irrigation plays a crucial role.

The Swiss company develops and produces high precision elastomeric sensors and actuator solutions for applications such as active feedback, shape-changing surfaces (morphing), immersive stimulation, user’s posture monitoring and force sensing. It has specialized in the dielectric elastomer actuator allowing fully 3D design thanks its flexibility and light weight. Compared to conventional actuators, this elastomer actuator generates high force (up to 10N) and displacement (up to a few mm), paving the way to system miniaturization.
