The most underrated nanotechnologies – Cavitation Technology

APRIL 11, 2018 The world of nanotechnology is vast. Practically every industry and application will use #nanotechnology in one form or another. Because nanotechnology is the study of the #nanoscaleenvironment, and everything involves some basic reaction or interaction at the nanoscale, everything utilises nanotechnology at some point. Given that fact, it is obvious that some technologies [...]

Israel: Crops in the Desert Are Irrigated with Municipal Sewage (Chinese)

以色列:沙漠里种庄稼 用城市生活污水来灌溉 封面新闻 2018-03-15 11:38 https://imgcdn.thecover.cn/2484_1521103035000.mp4   在以色列南方,内盖夫沙漠(Negev Desert)人烟稀少。然而,这片不毛之地却滋养着绿色,为以色列赢得“欧洲的冬季厨房”美誉。 在以色列的大街小巷,不管是古老的耶路撒冷,还是现代的特拉维夫,甚至在人烟稀少的内盖夫沙漠,总能看到地面铺设的一根根纵横交错的管道。这就是以色列闻名于世的滴灌节水技术。 水,在以色列意味着什么?他们有何用水之道?3月4日到6日,在以色列农博会举办的前夕,封面新闻记者远赴以色列探寻农业的奥秘。 探访农户 沙漠里种庄稼 手机掌握作物生长动态 在内盖夫沙漠,64岁的以色列农民Elyasim有着一大片农场。当记者来到这里时,被黄土上生长出来的一大片绿色所吸引。 64岁的以色列农民Elyasim Elyasim的父母也是农民。回想起父母务农的情景,Elyasim觉得现在自己轻松多了。“我父母经营农场时,都是手工耕作,现在一切都是机械化生产,在家里拿着手机就可以掌握土地里的一切动态。”他说,如今的以色列,小的独立农户很难生存,都是合作经营。随着农业科技的提高,农民的日子越来越轻松,他有3个子女,其中一个也在从事农业。 以色列农民对水有着非常深厚的感情。当被问到水对Elyasim意味着什么时,他摸了摸额头,沉默了几秒,最后说出一句话:“Water is everything”(水意味着一切)。 来到Elyasim的工作间里,记者看到墙上挂着一张大照片。照片中是蓄水池,里面是清澈的水,映着蓝天,水也变成深蓝色。而蓄水池被黄土包围着,颇为扎眼。他指着照片告诉记者,之前他只能种玉米和小麦,现在有了这里的水,他可以“想种什么就种什么”。  Source: https://m.thecover.cn/news_details.html?id=651302&from=singlemessage&isappinstalled=0 TO RECEIVE THE LATEST NEWS IN THE FIELD, JOIN THE LINKEDIN GROUP

Exploring Israel’s “customized agriculture”: “Baby vegetables” become seeds to achieve “customized” (Chinese)

探秘以色列“定制农业”:“袖珍蔬菜”成抢手货 种子实现“定制化” 封面新闻 2018-03-15 11:16 在传统印象里,农业是“庄稼之人不得闲,面朝黄土背朝天”。如今的农业早已不再是那般模样。 在以色列,从事农业是一个精细的行当,就像是干“针线活”。瓜果的个头、颜色、甜分,种植季节,成长时间……一切都变成了键盘中的“选项”,可以自由组合。客户需要什么,就量身定制什么。 以色列农业有哪些惊艳之处?四川作为传统农业大省,能与以色列碰撞出哪些合作火花?3月4日至3月6日,在以色列农业科技展开幕前夕,封面新闻记者提前探访以色列,走访了多家以色列农业企业,揭开其农业科技的神秘面纱。         定制农业 “自定义”水果 可设计大小、颜色、甜分等 在尝一盘热腾腾的菜肴,咬一口甜美多汁的水果时,或许很少有人去想,这些美食的源头:种子。 Ofir Elasar所在公司位于以色列Givat Brenne市,研究对象是种子。通过15年的摸索,如今他们已经成为行业中的佼佼者,和超过30个国家做生意。他们的商业法宝就是定制蔬果。 “世界变化发展很快,每个消费者都想寻找一些特别的东西。”Ofir Elasar用西瓜举例,有些地区的消费者喜欢大西瓜,有些地方喜欢小西瓜;做沙拉要求西瓜颜色要好看;客人想要皮薄肉厚;商场要求保鲜期长;如果大家都习惯了绿皮的西瓜,那就推出一些橙色皮的西瓜,抓住消费者的眼球。 要满足这些要求,就需为不同地区的消费者进行个性化定制。 在Ofir Elasar的展示中,同一个形状,同一种甜度的西瓜,重量可以设计成1千克到15千克等。形状也可以改变,圆形、椭圆形、长圆形等。皮色可以是宽条纹,深绿色,绿色等。有些果皮厚,有些果皮薄。有些成熟季节早,有些成熟季节晚……一切特质都变成了“选项”,可以随意点击,自由选择。 设计怎样的水果,才符合市场需要?Ofir Elasar将目光放到了5年后。他说,从研发到投入市场需要一个时间周期,这个周期有时达5年之久。因此,产品在研发时就需要预判消费者5年后的消费喜好。“小型蔬果可能在未来有很大的需求趋势。”他认为,不像是以前的大家族,未来家庭成员人数趋少,为了保鲜,应该会更需要小个头水果。 把蔬菜“变小”  生长10到20天后即可食用 当Avner Shohet意识到,花卉种植生产逐渐往非洲和南美转移时,2000年时,他将目光投向了水培种植和袖珍蔬菜生产行业 Avner Shohet的农场坐落在以色列的Oleash市。这个4公顷的农场每年能生产200吨蔬菜。和传统种植方式不同,这里的蔬菜并没有生长在地上。在一大片生长在管道中,盒子里的蔬菜里,一些小个头的“袖珍蔬菜”尤其吸引眼球。Avner Shohet告诉记者,最初人们会在自家找闲置容器,在里面洒上种子,等待发芽,然后采摘最新鲜的嫩叶吃。他们将这种做法成熟得运用到商业中。由此,袖珍蔬菜应运而生。 在刚推出时,这些袖珍蔬菜受到大厨和美食客的喜爱。“这些小叶子很鲜嫩,装饰食物好看,含有多种维他命,而且只需要10到20天的生长周期。”他一边介绍,一边摘下一株温室里生长的蔬菜,没用水洗,直接塞进嘴里吃,因为生产环节可控,他对蔬菜的绿色环保很有自信。  Source: https://m.thecover.cn/news_details.html?id=651303&from=singlemessage&isappinstalled=0 TO RECEIVE THE LATEST NEWS IN THE FIELD, JOIN THE LINKEDIN GROUP
