China to Provide Earthquake Monitoring Services to High-speed Rails[Oct 29, 2018]

China will officially provide services for the quick reporting of earthquake seismic intensity and provide early warning information to high-speed rail networks nationwide by 2021. It will benefit information integration and sharing between China's high-speed rails and earthquake information system, increasing the country's early earthquake warning information service capabilities.


US, Chinese Researchers Develop Energy-efficient Plastic-manufacturing Material[Oct 29, 2018]

American and Chinese researchers have developed an innovative filtering material that can separate purified ethylene out of a mixture with ethane, potentially reducing the environmental cost of manufacturing plastic. The study described the metal-organic framework (MOF), a class of substances that can separate individual hydrocarbons from the soup of organic molecules produced by oil refining processes.

China Launches HY-2B Marine Satellite[Oct 26, 2018]

China sent a new marine satellite into orbit Thursday morning to form a network with the subsequent HY-2C and HY-2D for maritime environmental monitoring. The HY-2 satellites will play a key role in China's ocean resource survey, disaster relief and environment management. The follow-up satellite network will better serve the world and China's maritime power strategy.
