Pacific Northwest is a hub for fusion companies chasing power’s ‘holy grail’

"To create fusion, one must first generate a plasma — a superheated gas and the most energetic of the four states of matter — where two nuclei smash into each other, forming a new atom and releasing energy. Plasmas are created in a wide variety of devices that can reach temperatures hotter than the sun and must contain the reactions for a sufficient amount of time. The energy given off by the reactions is captured and converted into electricity."

There are 280 billion tons of mining waste. This startup is putting it to good use

"Now, it’s working to partner with mining companies that want to get rid of waste (and potentially, in some cases, remediate old mining land so that it can have other uses, like a park). It’s also targeting old mines where waste has been sitting for decades—or even as long ago as the 1880s. Because it starts with waste,and doesn’t have to invest in drilling into the earth,the cost of the final materials can compete with minerals from polluting mines in China and other countries."

This startup seals your leaky home so you waste less energy and reduce your bill

"The system is relatively simple, and akin to fixing a flat tire. It first pressurizes the ducts or building envelope with a fan, then injects micron-sized particles, which, as they try to escape the building or any space, automatically adhere to the gaps and seals them. The particles are made of a non-toxic, non-flammable emulsion of water and vinyl acetate, according to the company, which adds that these are some of the same ingredients found in pacifiers and chewing gum."
