Looks like we have something new!

GE Energy announced that it has been awarded a patent for their eVent active film laminate, which may herald the long-awaited dawn of semi-permeable membranes. The solution has sent a buzz around various procurement and scientific agencies keen to get their hands on the expanded polytetrafluroethylene membrane, with an oleophobic treatment and continuous treatment. GE reckons the combination of treatment and coating provides unique functionality. Another false dawn? We will have to wait and see...

Meanwhile GE Global Research announced that they had received a $2 million grant to develop wearable sensors for CB attacks. GE would combine RFID tags with 'gas sensors’ that could fit into ID tags and other small items. They are also hoping that the tags will be able to analyze breath and pick up early signs of diabetes and cancer.
