Green-tech news harvest: Clean-tech funding, grape-powered chips
Climos looks for more funding; solar power for Fenway Park; more green building materials for Serious Materials; and "burpless" grass to reduce cows' methane emissions.
Here's a sampling of recent green-tech news:
With a lot of money going into start-ups, investors are eyeing stock market offerings closely.
Climos wants to "seed" the ocean with iron to stimulate plankton growth, some of which will die and sink, .
The solar thermal system will cut its gas use down by a third. I can confirm that Fenway recycles, too.
A twist on a classic science fair project: using acidic fruit to get a flow of current, enough to power these low-power chips from TI.
Serious Materials looks to expand into other green building materials.
Methane from cows is a potent greenhouse gas and a serious issue for countries that grow a lot of cattle. Carbon offset provider TerraPass does methane capture projects.
