Inside a battery recycling facility


Keeping up with the climate

AI and robotics are helping researchers build better batteries. The researchers used a machine learning model called Dragonfly and a robot called Clio to help them design a new electrolyte for lithium-ion batteries. (The electrolyte is the liquid that helps move the charge in the battery.) Better electrolyte means faster charging for the EV. (MIT Technology Review)

The Nord Stream pipeline’s methane leak was a climate disaster, but fossil fuel production emits more. Russian pipelines have leaked about 300,000 tons of methane, a potent greenhouse gas. Global oil and gas production emits that amount of oil every 1.5 days. (Bloomberg $)
