Ed: Not often we get a startup pitch a serious scientific product. I think it’s a fantastic idea that solves a real problem, my only concern is how do you get this into the new or existing reactors?
This is going to be a very hard market to sell into, presumably new plants are built by one of a handful of specialised engineering companies.
Somehow you need to convince the engineering companies and the Governments installing the plant that the TEGSS is a must have item.
Obviously keeping control of the plant is a non negotiable requirement so providing an onsite independent power supply makes a lot of sense, but inserting yourself into [...]

Nearly doubling the efficiency of a breakthrough photovoltaic cell they created last year, UCLA researchers have developed a tandem-structure transparent organic photovoltaic (TOPV) device which is a two-layer, transparent solar film that could be placed on windows, sunroofs, smartphone displays and other surfaces to harvest energy from the sun.
Whilst the new cells only convert a small amount of energy compared to the leading technologies (7.3% vs 44%) their flexible transparent properties mean that they potentially could be applied to just about any glass surface as well as building walls, vehicle [...]
Australian Technologies Park Innovations companies Elastagen and Endoluminal Sciences have scored a combined $4.5 million in funding from a NSW Government initiative called the Medical Devices Fund
Elastagen produces a human protein Elastin treatment called Elastatherapy™ which offers the chance to restore the levels of Elastin in human skin, with benefits anticipated in both cosmetic and medical dermatology applications. Elastatherapy is currently undergoing in human trials, Elastin can be stretched to over eight times its original length and snaps back without any deformation. [...]
