Malaria is a disease of the most vulnerable: the very young and the poor. There are around 219 million cases and more than 400’000 deaths worldwide annually, with children under 5 years old accounting for 67% of these deaths. Despite huge progress in the reduction of malaria cases and deaths, many countries with the potential to eliminate the disease are still not on track to meet milestones set by the WHO. The main reason for this is the failure to identify and treat asymptomatic carriers (ACs) with current diagnostic technologies such as Rapid Diagnostic Technology (RDT) and microscopy.

A pneumatic linear actuator is a core component of industrial manufacturing equipment, whose main function is to convert energy (in the form of compressed air) into mechanical motion to produce every type of goods. However, pneumatic actuators are one of the weakest links in a modern production chain, because they entail several important issues in terms of energy efficiency, equipment overall effectiveness (OEE), digitalization, predictive maintenance and mass product customization.

The Swiss company is developing systems to help businesses secure their supply chain and protect their products from counterfeit and plagiarism. In addition, companies can also track and manage their complete product life cycles easily through the application. The approach is the provision of a most trusted database, supply chain management, and service platform for registering, locating and identifying lost, stolen and counterfeit assets. The technology implemented is a counterfeit protection using near field communication (NFC) technology in combination with blockchain.

High-performance lubricant for winter sports - biodegradable, non-toxic and easy to use. A substitute for the critical fluorine ski waxes

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.

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

Offers
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.
