360° Reports

Snapshots of technology, research, and business activities across tech sectors and industries

360° Reports in Mergeflow are snapshots of current technology, research, and business activities related to a specific topic. Here we post new 360° Reports on topics from various industries and tech sectors.

360° Reports we have made so far

About every week, we make a new 360° Report on a new topic from a different industry or tech sector. When you look at 360° Reports, you get a first glimpse of what our SaaS software looks like from the inside.

Methane Emissions

13 Oct 2021

Increasing methane emissions are a major contributor to the rising concentration of greenhouse gases, and are responsible for up to one-third of near-term global heating. But R&D and investments in methane-emission-mitigating technologies are rising. Innovations include methane leak monitoring technologies, making sustainable fertilizers, and better understanding and engineering of relevant microbiota.

Battery Management Systems

05 Oct 2021

Battery management systems are electronics and software that manage a rechargeable battery or battery pack. They ensure safe and efficient operation of the battery. For example, they protect the battery from operating outside its safe operating limits, monitor its state, and control the immediate environment of the battery.

Flow Batteries

07 Sep 2021

Flow batteries are rechargeable batteries in which electrolyte flows through electrochemical cells. A flow battery may be used like a fuel cell (old fuel is removed and new fuel injected) or like a rechargeable battery (electric power is used to regenerate fuel).
