An unexpected property of nanometer-scale antimony crystals — the spontaneous formation of hollow structures — could help give the next generation of lithium-ion batteries higher energy density without reducing battery lifetime. The reversibly hollowing structures could allow lithium-ion batteries to hold more energy and therefore provide more power between charges.
An electric-powered Cessna 208B Grand Caravan lifted off a Moses Lake runway on 28 May, marking another milestone in a project that aims to bring all-electric flight to consumer air travel.
In taking flight, the Caravan became, according to the companies behind the project, the largest all-electric passenger or cargo aircraft ever to fly.
HPQ Silicon has partnered with PYROGENESIS, a world leader in plasma technology, to develop THE PUREVAP ™ QUARTZ VAPORIZATION REACTOR, a one step process for reducing quartz to high purity silicon and/or polycrystalline silicon. HPQ Silicon has world wide exclusive use of the PUREVAP Quartz Vaporization Reactor. A technology that could revolutionize the making solar panel into a more competitive source of renewable energy
Project is a unique, historically prolific gold field located in the municipality of Saint-Simon-les-Mines in the Beauce region of Southern Quebec. 100% owned by HPQ Silicon, the project area hosts a six km long unconsolidated gold bearing sedimentary units (a lower saprolite and an upper brown diamictite) holding the largest placer gold deposit in eastern north America.
