Plastic-eating micro organism could possibly be small step towards tackling world’s air pollution disaster

(CNN)Plastic products made with polyurethane, a synthetic chemical compound, typically end up buried in a landfill. Now scientists discovered a strain of bacteria, the first of its kind, that can degrade the harmful compounds in polyurethane products — a positive step toward reducing the amount of plastic pollution in the environment. The findings were published…

Power-harvesting design goals to show Wi-Fi alerts into usable energy

Terahertz waves are pervasive in our daily lives, and if harnessed, their concentrated power could potentially serve as an alternate energy source. Imagine, for instance, a cellphone add-on that passively soaks up ambient T-rays and uses their energy to charge your phone.
