Angolan youth improve water quality

António Quilala and Yonara de Freitas are two young Angolans with a degree in Chemistry. As a result of their knowledge in the area, they developed a community project called "My water, my life," culminating in the creation of Biofiltro, a device capable of removing 98 percent of impurities in the water before being treated for human consumption.



Embraer reveals the flying car "for the masses"

The "flying car" developed by Embraer X, Embraer's subsidiary for disruptive business, will be an aircraft for "the masses," as the president of the unit, Antonio Campello, said. Inside, it is planned that the vehicle will look like an SUV. The company has disclosed the model yesterday in Washington, USA, during an Uber event about air transportation. The two companies work in partnership developing projects in that area. There is still no public schedule for the presentation of Embraer's aircraft and, therefore, it isn't known if the Brazilian company will participate in the first tests planned by Uber already in the next year.
