UK energy technology MOU to support China’s growth in offshore renewables

TUS-ORE Catapult Research Centre and UK Energy Technology Platform join forces to support China’s growth in offshore renewable energy.

DELFT, ZUID-HOLLAND, NETHERLANDS, November 24, 2020 / — The TUS-ORE Catapult Research Centre (TORC), a joint venture between the UK’s Offshore Renewable Energy Catapult and TUS Wind in China, has joined forces with the UK Energy Technology Platform (ETP), developed by and Carjon-NRG, to support the export of innovative UK technology and expertise.

A Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the two organisations will see them jointly promote the development of offshore renewable energy in the UK and China, supporting the “the Belt and Road” strategic cooperation between the two countries.

Kevin Liu, Head of China and Head of Energy Trade Asia Pacific at Scottish Development International (SDI), commented: “I am very excited to see this tie up between TORC and UK ETP, which I believe will help to bring more industry-leading energy technology from Scotland into the China market, and provide a strong springboard for Scottish supply chain companies to win more Chinese business. UK ETP’s user-friendly online platform can offer Chinese operators, developers and contractors a simple way to browse and search for Scottish solutions, while Scottish companies can make good use of TORC’s landing and incubation service to build their China presence in a secure and cost-effective manner.”

David Findlay, TORC’s General Manager, said: “Our collaboration with the UK Energy Technology Platform, which already has an extensive online directory of over 400 marine and energy technologies, will help us to further develop our offering to UK businesses, providing a shop window for UK companies looking to break into the Chinese market. Companies interested in working in China will have the opportunity to be directly promoted through this powerful alliance.”

“We’re excited to work with TORC. In light of current COVID-19, low oil/gas price and energy transition challenges, the need for accelerating effective technology deployment and export has increased significantly. Due to travel and meetings restrictions, suppliers are seeking alternatives to exhibitions and other conventional ways to attract buyers for their technology. The UK Energy Technology Platform makes finding technology for the operators and developers in the energy sector as easy as finding a great restaurant or accommodation online — and provide access to effective support services required to get the technology deployed. It also helps promising UK and Chinese energy suppliers across all facets of the energy sector to showcase their technologies to end-users in the UK, China and across the world,” said Erik Nijveld, Managing Partner,

Benefits of the MOU and platform include:
– Increase the visibility of emerging, existing and field-proven UK energy technologies in the Chinese market
– Over 400 technologies are already uploaded on the UK ETP and
– Enhance knowledge sharing among the UK Energy Technology Platform members
– Facilitate synergies between technologies and clients
– Provide additional services to help identify and reach the right buyers for their technology
– Highlight the potential for UK and Chinese company collaborations in China
– Highlighting potential UK Inward Investment potential and collaboration

Colin Black, Managing director, Carjon-NRG and UK partner for the UK ETP, commented: “Operators, developers and end-users in the energy industry are keen to innovate, but they often struggle to know which technologies are available, and what has already been used by other operators and developers and in other parts of the world. For most in the energy sector, it can be almost overwhelming and impossible to find what is available quickly. Many may find it challenging to compare and have a clear overview of a technology’s pros and cons and specifications, as well as, any relevant track record and reviews from companies that have already used the technology. Also, people often don’t have the specific technical expertise required to sustainably embed the technology in their business. This is where the MOU between TORC and the UK ETP comes into play, helping increase the visibility of UK technology in China and may also lead to potential Chinese inward investment in the UK."

Joining the platform is simple and free – suppliers can add their technologies and end-users can access the content for FREE. To sign up for an account and join, visit

As the economy restarts, will the energy markets be changed forever? Probably so. Let’s take at what we can anticipate in the coming weeks, months, & years.

As economic activity has come to a near standstill during the height of the Covid-19 lockdowns around the world, energy demand has fallen precipitously.”

— Formaspace

AUSTIN, TEXAS, UNITED STATES, November 23, 2020 / — Current State Of The Energy Market

One look at the postwar price chart below tells the story – the coronavirus pandemic has led us into an oil price collapse, the like of which has not been seen since 1986 and 1998.

Record Low Energy Consumption Around The World

As economic activity has come to a near standstill during the height of the Covid-19 lockdowns around the world, energy demand has fallen precipitously.

– According to analysis from the International Energy Agency (IEA), published in their 2020 Global Energy Review, the first quarter saw electricity demand drop by 20% or more.
– Airlines, a major consumer of jet fuel, have been hit especially hard. Seat capacity has been cut by 70% or more as airlines eliminated scheduled routes or converted any remaining flights into all-cargo operations.
– Demand for gasoline fell as drivers followed stay-at-home orders and commuters began working from home. Traffic on California freeways dropped as much as 55% while Uber reported its ride share bookings were down 80% in April.

Unprecedented Confluence Of Events: Sudden Drop In Demand For Oil Amid An Energy Price War

The sudden collapse of demand for energy quickly created a crisis of its own: where to store all the oil and gas being produced around the world.

Energy producers began a desperate scramble to find spare capacity to store crude oil –every empty tank, railroad car, or oceangoing oil tanker around the world was soon filled to capacity.

Despite this, major producers Saudi Arabia and Russia continued with normal production levels even as prices were falling, hoping to increase market share at the expense of more costly US shale production.

Things finally came to a head when futures traders began to take into account that operations in Cushing, Oklahoma (home to North American’s oil pipeline hub) might grind to a halt, unable to cope with the excess capacity.

The results were dramatic: Oil futures momentarily went into negative territory – in other words, producers would have to pay someone to take oil off their hands.

No One Wants To Be First To Shut Down Oil And Gas Production

You’ve probably heard the old business finance joke, but it bears worth repeating here: “We sell each widget at a loss, but we make it up in volume.”

It’s true, you can’t make money selling product at a loss for an indefinite period of time.

The logical response to the collapse of oil prices would have been to stop production. Yet, as we mentioned above, both Saudi and Russian producers hoped to leverage their lower production costs into greater market share at the expense of American shale oil production, whose extra production steps (due to fracking processes, etc.) make it more difficult to earn a profit when the price of oil drops below $40.

The idea of shutting down wells was especially unpalatable for US shale oil produces, something that producers wanted to stave off as long as possible. Shutting down an oil well is expensive (workers need to be called in to safely cap a well that’s taken out of production), and once a well has been taken out of production, there’s no guarantee it can be reactivated at a later date to produce the same amount of oil and gas prior to the shutdown.

This is especially true for fracked wells commonly used for extracting shale oil and gas. You can think of the fracking processes as something similar to frothing milk for a cappuccino: injecting wells with high-pressure fracking fluids can create a productive well, but once the well has been shut off, it’s hard to “froth” it a second time.

Nonetheless, the US oil industry was forced to start the unenviable task of shutting down oil wells, which, in turn, has led to record job losses across the oil patch.

Has The Energy Market Become A Game Of Survival Of The Fittest?

Is it fair to describe the high-stakes energy market as a variation on the popular Hunger Games television series, where the lowest production cost producer wins?


The crisis seems to be accelerating some of the ongoing trends that existed prior to the pandemic.

For example, the sudden collapse of demand for energy has been especially tough for the coal industry, which produces a fuel that’s more expensive for electricity producers to use. The IEA’s 2020 Global Energy Review (mentioned earlier) says Q1 demand for coal dropped nearly 8% over 2019. This is bad news for a sector that was eclipsed by renewable energy sources for the first time last year (and renewables are on track to repeat this feat again in 2020).

Renewables are indeed on the rise, with the IEA predicting low-carbon electricity sources* will reach 40% of global energy generation this year, albeit at a lower total for 2020, as the IEA estimate overall electric demand will be down 5% (assuming an economic recovery later in the year.)

*IEA low-carbon statistics include wind, solar, hydropower, and nuclear.

(Some analysts think the uptake for renewables would have been even higher in 2020, but the lockdown prevented many residential solar energy projects from moving forward.)

The IEA forecasts oil and natural gas demand will recover somewhat during the second half of 2020, but annual demand will be far lower, with oil consumption forecast to be down 8% and natural gas down 5% compared to 2019.

In response, proponents of oil and gas in Washington are taking action to help oil and gas companies reduce the cost of domestic production. Federal regulators have proposed reducing lease payments and reducing royalty rates (or delaying payment deadlines) for drilling on public lands. Washington may be looking at making things more difficult for the solar industry as well, such as taking over the regulation of subsidies for solar power from the states.

Lesson From The Pandemic: Major Changes Can Happen Quickly

The dramatic reduction in electricity production and vehicular traffic during the coronavirus lockdown has led to unexpected changes over the course of a few short weeks.

Azincourt Energy Mobilizes for Geophysical Targeting at the East Preston Uranium Project, Athabasca Basin, Canada

Figure 1: Target corridors at the East Preston Uranium Project, Western Athabasca Basin Saskatchewan

Figure 2: Proposed areas for upcoming HLEM survey at the East Preston Uranium Project

Figure 3 Project Location – Western Athabasca Basin, Saskatchewan, Canada

Azincourt Energy Corp (TSX:AAZ)

VANCOUVER, BC, CANADA, November 23, 2020 / — AZINCOURT ENERGY CORP. (“Azincourt” or the “Company”) (TSX.V: AAZ, OTC: AZURF), is pleased to announce it is undertaking a ground-based geophysical exploration program at the East Preston uranium project, located in the western Athabasca Basin, Saskatchewan, Canada. Crew and equipment are on site and will commence operations immediately.

The program will be comprised of a horizontal loop electromagnetic survey (“HLEM”) to refine and help prioritize areas where untested conductive corridors have been identified in existing property-wide airborne VTEM survey results. A total of 33 line-km of HLEM surveying will be completed, commencing in late November. The survey was originally scheduled for the summer but has been delayed due to Covid-19 restrictions and disruptions.

A diamond drilling program is anticipated for follow up to continue to test prospective conductor trends on the property. Target selection will be finalized after the Company interprets the results of the HLEM survey and reviews the existing target inventory.

Unconformity related uranium deposits associated with the Athabasca Basin are closely associated with basement conductive packages. VTEM surveys have identified conductive corridors within the East Preston land package. The HLEM survey will narrow down where within these corridors drilling should focus.

“The collection of this data and refinement of conductor locations within the identified corridors will ensure that our highest priority areas are being targeted and tested effectively,” said Exploration Manager, Trevor Perkins.

Patterson Geophysics of La Ronge, Saskatchewan, has been contracted for the program. They are familiar with East Preston, having conducted previous geophysical programs on the project over the last few years.

About East Preston

Azincourt is currently earning towards 70% interest in the 25,000+ hectare East Preston project as part of a joint venture agreement with Skyharbour Resources (TSX.V: SYH), and Dixie Gold Inc (TSX.V: DG). Three prospective conductive, low magnetic signature corridors have been discovered on the property. The three distinct corridors have a total strike length of over 25 km, each with multiple EM conductor trends identified. Ground prospecting and sampling work completed to date has identified outcrop, soil, biogeochemical and radon anomalies, which are key pathfinder elements for unconformity uranium deposit discovery.

The East Preston Project has multiple long linear conductors with flexural changes in orientation and offset breaks in the vicinity of interpreted fault lineaments – classic targets for basement-hosted unconformity uranium deposits. These are not just simple basement conductors; they are clearly upgraded/enhanced prospectivity targets because of the structural complexity.

The targets are basement-hosted unconformity related uranium deposits similar to NexGen’s Arrow deposit and Cameco’s Eagle Point mine. East Preston is near the southern edge of the western Athabasca Basin, where targets are in a near surface environment without Athabasca sandstone cover – therefore they are relatively shallow targets but can have great depth extent when discovered. The project ground is located along a parallel conductive trend between the PLS-Arrow trend and Cameco’s Centennial deposit (Virgin River-Dufferin Lake trend).

About Azincourt Energy Corp.

Azincourt Energy is a Canadian-based resource company specializing in the strategic acquisition, exploration, and development of alternative energy/fuel projects, including uranium, lithium, and other critical clean energy elements. The Company is currently active at its joint venture East Preston uranium project in the Athabasca Basin, Saskatchewan, Canada, and the Escalera Group uranium-lithium project located on the Picotani Plateau in southeastern Peru.

Petraco Oil Company SA appoints new Chief Financial Officer (CFO)

Petraco Group is one of the oldest independent trading companies in Europe, priding itself on great expertise and strong connection with its customers.

LUGANO, TICINO, SWITZERLAND, November 22, 2020 / — The Petraco Group has appointed its new Chief Financial Officer, Mr. Alberto Salsiccia. He will take on his predecessor’s position with a desire to maintain the Group’s strong presence in commodities trading as well as the company’s commitment to meet global energy demand while promoting a sustainable and low carbon future. Mr. Salsiccia obtained an MSc in Finance at the Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore in Milan, Italy graduating amongst the top of his class and is a UK Certified Public Accountant. A spokesperson for Petraco has stated “we are thrilled with Alberto’s appointment. He is incredibly well-prepared to lead the financial aspects of our business and will undoubtedly bring enthusiasm and passion to his role”. Many commodity trading houses, like the Petraco Group, have well-established financial departments which maintain relationships with financial stakeholders. The nature of the physical trading business means a good rapport with banks is important.

When asked what drove him to Petraco in the first place Mr. Salsiccia highlighted the company’s open door, collaborative and collegiate culture. “Petraco is an incredibly friendly workplace, and I am thrilled to be heading their highly capable financial department. We are currently consolidating our position as physical traders working to do our bit in achieving a low-carbon future”, he added. Indeed, this appears to be in line with many other commodity trading houses who have in recent years also invested significantly to diversify their business model to ensure emissions reductions. Many of these companies have added LNG trading into their business, a product with lower carbon emissions, as well as electricity and carbon permit trading.

Mr. Salsiccia added “Petraco has always been and will always be a company that prides itself on its employees. We simply would not be where we are today without our highly qualified and capable staff. Our recruitment process is rigorous, yet personality is often key. It is so great to be able to work alongside trade finance officers who work together as a real team”. Mr. Salsiccia himself started out in Petraco’s Accounting & Compliance Department, before being introduced to trade finance and eventually being promoted to the prestigious position of Chief Financial Officer. He added “I have some big shoes to fill after the fantastic work of our previous CFO, especially in light of the challenges presented in 2020. The oil industry suffered a great hit but for us the first and foremost priority is the safety of our employees during the Covid-19 crisis. We are lucky to live in the beautiful city of Lugano with our offices against the backdrop of a spectacular mountain landscape, but we must never become complacent or take anything for granted. Hard work and safety are the main priorities”.

NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE, US, November 22, 2020 / — CEOCFO Magazine, an independent business and investor publication that highlights important technologies and companies, today announced an interview with Amytrx Therapeutics, Inc. on how they are advancing the next generation of inflammation-targeting therapies. Founder, President and CEO, Dr. Matthew A Gonda, Ph.D. told CEOCFO about their AMTX-100 technology and how they are delivering a first-in-class biologically active molecule to treat chronic diseases mediated by inflammation. Dr. Gonda, shared with Lynn, “Amytrx’s inflammation-targeting technology is an entirely new therapeutic approach with immense potential to yield safer and more effective therapies for a large array of unmet medical needs… Our peptide technology is breakthrough in that this will be the first time a biological molecule is able to penetrate the skin and treat disease. This is not only true for inflammatory skin conditions like atopic dermatitis but for a whole host of other chronic inflammatory diseases for which AMTX-100 could be specifically formulated to deliver superior treatment.”

Telling Lynn about the targets for their technology and where they are today, Dr. Gonda said, “We have produced enough GMP drug to enable executing on our FDA approved Phase 1/2b clinical protocol and raised enough capital to support our commercialization plans over the next year or two. There are a large number of diseases caused by inflammation that still represent unmet medical needs. Inflammation causes or is associated with 80% of all diseases worldwide. We wanted to select a disease which represented an unmet medical need and where we could see the results quickly with our new therapeutic. So skin was our target. Of course, there are many skin diseases caused by inflammation, including psoriasis, atopic dermatitis, which is also known as eczema, rosacea, acne, herpes infections and shingles. I said, ‘Let’s target a significant disease of skin with AMTX-100 where we could have safety results and obtain insight into its biological activity to determine if there was sufficient data to move the drug forward.’ We chose atopic dermatitis, developed proof-of-concept in an animal model, safety testing studies and a clinical protocol for a topically applied drug to accelerate drug development and submitted it to get regulatory approval from the FDA. The type of protocol we developed is called an adaptive Phase I/IIb, which means we could accelerate the clinical process, simply because we do not have to go back to the FDA with a Phase II after the Phase I protocol for approval. We started our Phase I clinical trial in March of 2020 and have completed two out of five cohorts and have enrolled several patients in the third cohort. The results thus far are very encouraging. Completing the Phase I is a priority. That is basically where we stand today.”

Florida-based Management Advisory Firm Qorval Partners, LLC, CEO and Senior Managing Partner, Paul Fioravanti, MBA, MPA, discusses taking businesses out of the red and putting them back into the black with CEOCFO Magazine. Mr. Fioravanti, told Lynn, “Over the years I’ve been a fierce networker and I’ve never approached network to ‘get something,’ but rather to give something. At Qorval we’ve always worked hard to help people when they are struggling or, for example, when their bank is pressuring them, or they’ve found themselves out of work, and we’ve always made it a priority to pay it forward up front, with no expectation of anything in return. I think most professionals in my craft and all of the ones in Qorval are those kinds of individuals. Life isn’t easy, and business isn’t either – so it seems logical that we should all support each other, be communicative, respectful, and encouraging. Our job at Qorval is to help people, to drive results. We provide clients access to leadership, expertise and experience they need in order to improve and transform their companies. Often if we can’t help them, depending on their unique challenge or need, odds are we can refer them to someone who can. Our network is immense, and it’s gotten that way by treating people with respect, compassion, and care.”

“Qorval is a boutique consulting firm where we work with a variety of businesses, from smaller entrepreneurial companies to middle-market, publicly held, and private equity-owned businesses, across a mix of industries. We provide a range of services, from turnaround and restructuring services, to financial and operational improvement, transaction advisory, due diligence support for acquisition, divestiture, and post-merger integration. We also frequently serve as Chief Restructuring Officer, trustee and expert witnesses weighing in on various matters related to early, mid and late stage businesses. Qorval works in healthy growth situations as well as distressed ones. We advise on a variety of challenging situations that businesses find themselves in, or are about to find themselves in. We often describe our approach to our tactical assignments as “red2black,” meaning taking businesses out of the red and putting bringing them back into the black. We often say, as compared with larger firms we compete with, our emphasis is on generating results, not generating reports. For businesses in crisis, time isn’t their friend, and high impact execution, not theoretical strategy, is what matters,” said Mr. Fioravanti

Onsite Utility Services Capital, LLC, Founder and CEO, Fritz Kreiss tells CEOCFO Magazine’s Lynn Fosse how that are changing the energy efficiency industry from CapEx to energy Savings-as-a-Service model. Mr. Kreiss said, “We need to get organizations to look at it more from a, ‘How do I use my core capital and is this the best use of my core capital.”

Explaining how they have reinvented energy efficiency, Mr. Kreiss said, “Traditionally, the energy efficiency upgrades for customers have been sold on a return on investment or a fast-simple payback. The problem with that whole direction and path is that your energy project is now competing with their core use of their capital. That is why, typically, the energy efficiency contractors sell one out of four, even though the return on investment looks great. However, that business owner has limited capital and is always looking at what happens if there is a business opportunity to be able to grow the company.

He continues, “In our case, we just looked at it and said, ‘We have got to be just like the utilities.’ The utility borrows the money, they build a power plant of whatever energy project is going on, they maintain it, they service it, they earn a return on investment and they charge a monthly service fee to the customer. We just happen to offer onsite utilities. Therefore, we are deploying equipment onsite at the customer’s site. They do not have to buy equipment; they do not take on debts. We own, operate and manage the equipment, taking care of all the service work and we agree to provide them with energy savings, so their monthly service fee is going to be less than what they currently spend for generating their own lumens, for light and BTUs for heating and cooling.”

CEOCFO spoke with De Lune Corp President, Gaddafi Ismail about making its mark in the Federal contracting sphere. Mr. Ismail, told Lynn, “In order to succeed one has to concentrate on what they are doing and do it well and I need to make sure this is practiced in each of the sectors that we work in.”

As to the vision at De Lune Corp today, Mr. Ismail said, “De Lune Corp was incorporated in 2016 with the mission of connecting North American producers to global markets through supply chain efficiency and customized logistics. Building on the success of its international operations, De Lune ventured into the field of government contracting for international food aid and domestic food assistance programs in 2018. As a contractor to the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), we have been able to secure over USD 20 million in contracts to date. Most recently, we were selected to implement the Farmers to Families Food Box Assistance Program as part of the Coronavirus Food Assistance Program, the only company in Virginia to be awarded this contract. Being selected from a pool of 600 nation-wide applicants is a major achievement for a small business. Currently, we have diversified into health, energy and IT. So the vision at De Lune Corp today is to translate the same success it has had in its agro operations to the other verticals that it is engaged in.”

Providing a suite of UVC hygiene products, Cleanbox Technology CEO and Co-Founder, Amy Hedrick told Lynn, “We were here before COVID and we will be here after COVID. We are constantly innovating and integrating new technology and functionality.”

Asked what is available today, Ms. Hedrick said, “We currently have several products and three product lines on the market that decontaminate a range of devices from HMDs to tablets and phones, and a product for masks. For example, an organization has employees that wear masks in front of their customers, which is pretty much every company in the US, instead of disposing masks you can reuse them and this product has been tested specifically against COVID on N-95 masks.” Explaining their product’s ease of use, “It is a simple process; sixty seconds. You open the door, you place the item in, close the door, push the button and it goes through a process of both decontaminating and drying the headset. If there is sweat or other kinds of moisture from something else, it will continue to dry that over the sixty seconds, or if there is hair or something that has stuck to that product it will blow it off. There is also a visual countdown for the cycle. It is very, very simple.”

Green Point Research tells CEOCFO readers how they will grows into 2020 with robust hemp farming services, creating value for partners and fulfilling market needs for seed to sale agricultural supply chain scale. CEO David Hasenauer told Lynn, “Green Point Research’s strong value chain throughout several different agricultural seed stocks is expected to provide both live and manufacturing opportunities as we adapt to a post COVID world. With our unified long-term commitment to quality and support of farmers, we’re excited about the impact we’re collectively making now and in the future. The carbon capture ability of the hemp plant and its robust natural nature makes it a very logical solution to a lot of issues in agricultural and manufacturing supply chains. With this strong framework, talented team, and the power of this amazing plant, the future is bright for Green Point Research in 2020 and beyond”

Asked what is happening today at Green Point Research, Mr. Hasenauer said, “We have a seed production greenhouse in Colorado on the Western Slope at a place call Montrose, Delta County. We start by producing our own genetics in house. We do seed production there. Then we have tailored our activity for tropical and subtropical climates, which is why we are located in Florida, and we have developed our strains and genetic varietals to form in those regions. We have a thirty-acre nursery campus here in Fort Meade, Florida, that has significant greenhouse and shade house space, where we take our seeds from Colorado. We then seed, flat and start the plants that we deliver to farmers. We deliver rooted seed starts to farmers that will be transplanted in the fields. We have three pilot farms in Florida; North, Central and South Florida, Boynton Beach, Fort Meade, and Jasper, respectively. We are growing on each of those sites in conjunction with Florida State University, doing the research on the market viability, and it is conjoined with human clinical trials on a proprietary CBD based soft gel that we are comparing against ibuprofen. We have a clinical drug known as Satividol that we are working to bring to market.”

He continued, “The final piece of that is that we have expanded internationally into Colombia, so we have licensure to import/export road produced seeds in Colombia and should have our full-on cultivation permit here soon, as well as extraction and oil processing. We have gotten to attract some great partners down there, so day-to-day, we are continuing to develop that supply chain where we have high throughput drawing capacity to help farmers dry their product and get in an identity-preserved state for developing additional extraction capacity and expanding into fiber and grain markets outside of just cannabinoids. We are expanding our footprint internationally to serve in Latin America and the European Union out of Columbia. Therefore, we have got a lot going on. It has been a pretty explosive growth over the last eighteen months for us, and we are very excited about what we are doing. We are doing good work, so it is a good day at Green Point every day.”

Interviewing QuSpin, Inc. CEO, Vishal Shah, CEOCFO features the latest in Optical Atomic Magnetometers with the potential to fundamentally advance neuroscience and neuroimaging with real-time visualization. Mr. Shepherd tells Bud, “We pride ourselves on being able to merge science and engineering really well to build practical products that can make a massive real-world impact – something that has traditionally proven to be quite difficult.”

As to their magnetometers and how they can be used in brain imaging, Mr. Shah responded, “What connects magnetometers and brain imaging is the following. Whenever there is an electrical current that runs through a wire, a magnetic field is produced. The human brain is filled will neurons and the neuron communicate with each other using electrical currents. The currents produced by neurons generate magnetic fields. This magnetic field propagates through the brain tissue and the skull and can be measured outside the head using a super sensitive magnetometer.” He continues, “The magnetic fields produced by the human brain are really tiny, about 10 billion times smaller than the earth’s field. This is why we need highly sensitive magnetometers.”
