    Fuel and chemicals from steel plant exhaust gases

    Carbon monoxide-rich exhaust gases from steel plants are only being reclaimed to a minor extent as power or heat. Fraunhofer researchers have developed a new recycling process for this materially unused carbon resource: They successfully produced fuel and specialty chemicals from these exha ... more

    Metal encapsulation optimizes chemical reactions

    The chemical industry consumes millions of tons of packing materials as catalytic support media or adsorbents in fixed-bed reactors and heat storage systems. Fraunhofer researchers have developed a means of encapsulating these filler particles in metal that multiplies their thermal conducti ... more

    Diamond-like coatings save fuel

    Coating engine components with hard carbon reduces friction to almost zero – a development that could save billions of liters of fuel worldwide every year. Now researchers have developed a new laser method to apply the coating on the production line.Scientists already know how to coat compo ... more
