CTC toured a three story ocean transport barge which is being fitted out as a high density floating data center for initial deployment in Vallejo.
Unmanned aerial systems (UAS, or "drones" for some), are quickly finding applications in fields as diverse as entertainment, infrastructure and agriculture. Longitudinal data collection makes that image capture more valuable to agriculture and utilities over time. For agtech applications, the mashup of mapping to image collection holds tremendous promise.
At our First Pitch: Renewables on May 7th, judges declared Connora Technologies to be “Best in Show”. The win for Connora reflects excitement over very promising technology which will enable manufacturing from composites based on recycled material. To mark the occasion, we spoke to Rey Banatao, CEO of Connora Technologies.
CTC: Rey, Connora Technologies talks about cradle-to-cradle manufacturing. Why is that going to be important?
REY: The simple answer will be cost. We currently deal in the world of composites, where valuable materials like carbon fiber currently are degraded and/or discarded at the end of life, and as manufacturing waste. We believe that is untapped value the industry can take advantage of.
