What originally started as an Israeli startup, quickly became a commercial business manufacturing anti-viral face masks with a unique anti-pathogen fabric for the U.S. market by using sound waves to infuse nanoparticles into the fabric.
The Israeli startup Sonovia, which sped up efforts to manufacture masks using its anti-pathogen fabric at the start of the coronavirus crisis in Israel, has launched commercial sales.
The company’s technology is based on a lab-scale sonochemical process that was developed at Bar-Ilan University. Sonovia started manufacturing its product in March at a plant near Nahariya when Israel had only 200 patients, and has sold 30,000 masks. Continue Reading »

A simple experiment conducted by Dr. Noam van der Hal, a PhD in Environmental Sciences, revealed small fragments of plastics are ever-present in the environment and are found in many of our consumer products.
By Dominik Doehler, ZAVIT* Environment and Science News Agency
An Israeli scientist has found the presence of tiny plastic particles in three different kinds of milk, as experts are becoming increasingly concerned about potential long-term health implications.
Numerous international research studies have demonstrated that microplastics (defined by the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration as any plastic fragment less than 5 mm long) have found their way into almost every ecosystem on Earth as well as products for human consumption, such as fish, salt, and beer.

WATCH: Innovative Light-Blade laser utilizes a low-powered defensive system, making it suitable to operate in urban environments such as public airports without the risk of blinding or injuring anyone in the area.
A laser-based defense system capable of taking out attack drones even in urban environments has been developed by Israeli experts, who hope to roll out the system for a range of security uses, including at airports.
The system was developed by Prof. Amiel Ishaaya at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev after incendiary balloons started being launched into Israel in 2018, setting fire to farmland and causing widespread damage. Continue Reading »
Israeli researchers in the Upper Galilee are currently establishing parameters, permitting the safety approvals that will enable the Galilee Research Institute’s preclinical testing of a coronavirus vaccine.
