SOLIDteknics USA
Makers of fancy pants wrought iron skillets (behave like a higher performance cast iron with less weight), and now some sort of wrought monobloc ferritie non-nickel stainless steel pans with very high heat conductivity. Hrm, I wonder if the stainless they are using has any relation to the new specialist stainless available now, such as the stainless being used for SpaceX's starship...

Lucky Iron Fish
For rice heavy diet regions where people suffer from iron deficiency, assuming their local water isn't arsenic contaminated (which blocks iron uptake), putting a lump of bio-available iron in water or soup during cooking (10 minutes, with a bit of lemon to improve uptake) had substantial health improvement without the side effects of typical iron supplement tablets.

Empa - Shape Memory Alloys - A shape-conscious alloy
Low temp iron based SMA's make SMA reinforced prestressed concrete beams practical, which can be prestressed without elaborate tensioning systems. The only issue is the 160 degree transition temperature means if such a beam ever got exposed to a vehicle fire, it might fail faster than conventional prestressed concrete using steel rebar...

New Coal Technology Harnesses Energy Without Burning, Nears Pilot-Scale Development
Interesting chemical loop method to bypass direct combustion of coal or syngas. Used sealed process to strip iron oxide of oxygen with coal or syngas carbon to produce CO2 and reduced iron oxide, along with any coal dregs. The reduced iron oxide is brought outside of the chemical reactor and exposed to air, which causes it to heat up exothermically as it reacquires oxygen, the heat of which can run a conventional boiler for a steam turbine power generator. Makes CO2 capture much easier, and allows isolation of slag materials for separation/vitrification, rather than sending it up as flue gases. Wonder if this could be paired with the chemical looping desalination processes proposed for high temperature nuclear reactors?

BNL Newsroom | Breakthrough Iron-based Superconductors Set New Performance Records
New high current/high magnetic field/high temperature superconductor that is iron based that beats the pants off of existing iron and cuperate superconductors. Demonstrated 1MA/cm2 critical current, 200KA/cm2 at 30T at 43K (not quite LN2 temps but close), and they think they can up the temperature by further tweaking the layering.

Template engineering demonstrates possibilities of new Iron based superconducting material
Interesting superconductor work, but the template approach is somewhat unattractive for manufacturing purposes, because it implies batch processes. Though the use of barium titanate is interesting for the template. A possible secondary revenue stream for the EESTOR guys?
