  • This is the second video of the series exploring TRANSLATE's scientific innovation - a captivating journey into the realm of waste heat recycling with the TRANSLATE device. Learn about why current thermoelectric converters are not the optimal solution, and how the TRANSLATE device can leverage nanofluidic channels for the efficient recycling of waste heat. Uncover the scientific principles behind these microscopic pathways and how they revolutionise the extraction and repurposing of thermal energy. TRANSLATE is a €3.4 million EU-funded research project that aims to develop a new nanofluidic platform technology to effectively convert waste heat to electricity. This technology has the potential to improve the energy efficiency of many devices and systems, and provide a radically new zero-emission power source. The TRANSLATE project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement number 964251, for the action of 'The Recycling of waste heat through the Application of Nanofluidic ChannelS: Advances in the Conversion of Thermal to Electrical energy’. We bring physics, chemistry, materials science and machine learning together to push towards a more sustainable planet. More information can be be found on the TRANSLATE project website:
