Speeding innovation for industry
News | Cross-functional disciplines
Novares unveiled its Nova Car 2 demo car to manufacturers on June 25. The car incorporates around fifteen patented innovations, two of which were developed by CEA Tech institutes.
For the first time ever, diesel fuel has been produced by refining the oil contained in biocrude made using hydrothermal liquefaction of microalgae. The first-ever drops of diesel to be obtained in this way prove that this method for producing biofuel is technically feasible—a major step forward.
A MEMS-type accelerometer capable of measuring acceleration in three directions with a larger field of detection and greater sensitivity than conventional sensors was developed at Leti, a CEA Tech institute.
Energy Observer, the world’s first hydrogen-powered boat, features an innovative end-to-end energy architecture that is 100% carbon-free, distributed, and digital. Didier Bouix, who heads the project at Liten, a CEA Tech institute, recently won the Mission Innovation Champions award for his work.
Researchers at List, a CEA Tech institute, have developed simulation models and tools that leverage electromagnetism to characterize steel. These models and tools will be integrated into the CIVA platform so that they can be used to develop industrial non-destructive testing processes.
A silicon component cabled using wire bonding and encapsulated with a polymer using 3D printing was presented at ECTC 2018 in San Diego.
Automotive equipment manufacturers recently studied the nanoparticle emissions of different types of brake pads leveraging the know-how at Liten, a CEA Tech institute.
List, a CEA Tech institute, partnered with the French National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS) to develop an algorithm to automatically identify toxic chemicals and explosives in real time. The research was part of a French government CBRN-E counterterrorism program.
Startup Scintil Photonics, a spinoff of Leti, a CEA Tech institute, is developing optical communications technologies capable of achieving speeds of 800 Gbit/s at a very competitive cost. The company won the Bpifrance i-lab award in 2018. CEO Sylvie Menezo told us more.
CEA is a French government-funded technological research organisation in four main areas: low-carbon energies, defense and security, information technologies and health technologies. A prominent player in the European Research Area, it is involved in setting up collaborative projects with many partners around the world.
