 Energy storage is a vital component of the Smart Grids that are currently being built around the world.   These grids are designed to improve the reliability of electricity transmission and distribution, facilitate the integration of renewable energy generators, and allow long-distance trading of electricity supplies.  All of these functions require the grid to offer buffers where electricity can be stored locally.  
   
 However, for the most part the technologies up to this task have not been available.  To the extent that grids have incorporated storage it has either been through the use of conventional batteries originally targeted towards the automotive industry and which are not optimal for grid storage or through major engineering projects such as...

Clostridium Botulinum Infections Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends And Forecast, 2014 - 2020
By - Transparency Market Research
Clostridium botulinum infections are caused by clostridium botulinum, a gram-positive, rod-shaped bacterium which produces an extremely lethal substance that is botulism neurotoxin. The spread of clostridium botulinum in human body leads to life-threatening neuroparalysis and can be deadly. It blocks the motor nerve terminal at the myoneural junction and causes flaccid paralysis. There are three different forms of botulism that are as follows: Foodborne botulism: Foodborne botulism is caused by consuming food that is contaminated with botulinum toxin. For example, home-canned food...
