Institute Develops System that Filters Fine Dust from Chimney Smoke

DAEJEON, Jan. 27 (Korea Bizwire) — New technology has been developed to effectively filter fine dust in the white smoke emitted from thermoelectric power plants and waste incinerating facilities. The Korea Institute of Machinery and Materials said Wednesday that it had developed a system that filters contaminants in the smoke through simultaneous cooling and absorption [...]

Portable ‘Electronic Nose’ Enables Real-time Freshness Checking for Meat

Portable ‘Electronic Nose’ Enables Real-time Freshness Checking for Meat

DAEJEON, Jan. 25 (Korea Bizwire) — The Korea Research Institute of Bioscience and Biotechnology said Monday that a research team had developed a portable ‘electronic nose’ that can check whether meat has spoiled in real-time. The electronic nose can even detect a tiny amount of cadaverine and putrescine, which generate bad odors caused by meat [...]
