62: Facing up to environmental challenges

In a rapid­ly chang­ing world where envi­ron­men­tal issues show mul­ti-facets, UTC is get­ting its act togeth­er, so to speak. The lab­o­ra­to­ries are mobil­is­ing their forces. This is the case for UTC-TIMR, whether it be in the field of green ener­gy with sol­id hydro­gen, research into alter­na­tives to phy­tosan­i­tary prod­ucts for agri­cul­ture or chem­i­cal prod­ucts for soil decon­t­a­m­i­na­tion and final­ly recov­ery process­es for both organ­ic and non-con­ven­tion­al waste. Projects with exter­nal aca­d­e­m­ic and indus­tri­al part­ners are expand­ing. These include the Liv­ing Lab for opti­mum man­age­ment of elec­tri­cal charg­ing points as part of EE4.0 and the Indus­tri­al Chair designed to pur­sue research in ecode­sign. Final­ly, the arrival of two Nvidia super­com­put­ers at the Bio­me­chan­ics and Bio­engi­neer­ing Lab­o­ra­to­ry (UTC-BMBI) will ben­e­fit the lab’s research activ­i­ty as well as that of UTC as a whole. These super­com­put­ers, which each pro­vides com­pa­ra­ble per­for­mance lev­els, have seen their ener­gy con­sump­tion cut by a fac­tor of 1 000, from one megawatt for a clus­ter of machines to two kilowatts.
