  • Supercritical, a carbon removal marketplace, raises $13 million in a Series A funding round led by Lightspeed Venture Partners.

  • The marketplace focuses on providing fully-vetted and qualified carbon removal credits to tech companies and aims to scale up carbon removal technologies.

  • The funding will be used to expand the offering beyond tech companies and cater to the global market's need for net-zero emissions.

  • Supercritical's approach focuses on high-quality and durable carbon dioxide removal (CDR) projects, such as biochar, direct air capture, enhanced weathering, and afforestation.

  • The marketplace acts as a market-maker, aggregating demand and supporting the scaling of CDR projects.

  • The UK-based startup is part of a growing market for platforms facilitating carbon removal and driving demand for sustainable solutions.

  • Startup CarbonBuilt produces low-carbon concrete that can reduce carbon emissions by 70 to 100%.

  • Concrete production is a major source of harmful air pollution and contributes to global warming.

  • CarbonBuilt's unique process uses calcium-rich industrial waste materials and traps toxic gases in concrete blocks, preventing their release into the environment.

  • If widely adopted, the technology could prevent around a billion metric tons of carbon emissions annually.

  • The startup has already started production in Alabama and has garnered interest from contractors for large public projects.

  • CarbonBuilt aims to revolutionize the concrete industry and demonstrate that carbon emissions can be significantly reduced without compromising cost or performance.

  • The number of "mosquito days" with hot and humid weather has increased in many U.S. cities, according to a report by Climate Central.

  • Mosquitoes carry diseases such as malaria, West Nile, and Zika, making their increase a public health concern.

  • 71% of the analyzed locations saw an average increase of 16 mosquito days between 1979 and 2022.

  • Some locations in the South are becoming too hot for mosquitoes, but other factors like rainfall and drought can influence mosquito activity.

  • Experimental efforts to control mosquito populations through genetic modification are being conducted, but they face controversy and skepticism.

  • Climate change is contributing to the rise of mosquitoes and the diseases they transmit, posing challenges for local officials.


  • NIO has introduced the ET5 Touring, its latest electric car model, claiming it to be the "first smart electric tourer."

  • The ET5 Touring offers versatility, space, and practicality, with a sleek and attractive hatchback design.

  • The car features advanced technology, including a panoramic glass sunroof, intelligent infotainment console, and optional NIO Air AR Glasses.

  • It offers nine driving modes, including scenario modes for various driving conditions, and is equipped with NIO AQUILA Super Sensing for assisted and intelligent driving.

  • The starting price for the ET5 Touring in China is RMB 298,000 ($41,507) for the 75 kWh battery version and RMB 356,000 ($49,586) for the 100 kWh version.

  • Tesla is interested in acquiring a Germany-based wireless charging startup, Wiferion, for its potential EV wireless charging technology.

  • Wireless charging for electric vehicles has not gained widespread popularity due to efficiency and cost issues.

  • Tesla has previously focused on an automated robot arm for charging, but has recently teased a wireless home charging station.

  • Wiferion specializes in inductive charging solutions for industrial robots and electric vehicles, which aligns with Tesla's needs.

  • The deal, if completed, is expected to be in the mid to high double-digit millions of dollars.

  • The acquisition could accelerate Tesla's wireless charging initiatives and complement its existing programs.

  • Tesla's Dojo supercomputer, designed for AI machine learning and video training, is set to go into production next month.

  • Dojo is a custom-built supercomputer using Tesla-designed chips and infrastructure.

  • It will enhance Tesla's capacity to train neural networks using video data, crucial for its self-driving technology.

  • Tesla had previously showcased progress on Dojo at its AI Day events in 2021 and 2022.

  • The company plans to continually expand Dojo's capabilities until it becomes one of the world's most powerful supercomputers by early 2024.

  • Dojo is expected to leverage Tesla's extensive database of real-world driving scenarios to advance its self-driving capabilities.
