  • Promising biobased alternatives to polar aprotic solvents

    A report from Wageningen Food & Biobased Research commissioned by RIVM (the Dutch National Institute for Public Health and the Environment) has revealed a number of promising biobased alternatives to the controversial polar aprotic solvents NMP, DMAc and DMF. Wageningen Food & Biobased Research carr more

  • Breakthrough process for directly converting methane to methanol

    The direct oxidation of methane--found in natural gas--into methanol at low temperatures has long been a holy grail. Now, researchers at Tufts have found a breakthrough way to accomplish the feat using a heterogeneous catalyst and cheap molecular oxygen, according to a paper published by a team led more

  • Climate-friendly architecture thanks to natural folding mechanisms

    Mobile components on buildings such as blinds whose design was copied from naturally occurring solutions -- that is the subject of the research conducted by a team from the Technical University of Munich (TUM), the University of Freiburg, and the University of Stuttgart. The aim is to outfit them wi more

From the Toilet to the Tank – Biofuels from Sewage

What we flush can be converted into a biocrude oil with properties very similar to fossil fuels. Pacific Northwest National Laboratory researchers have worked out a process that does not require that sewage be dried before transforming it under heat and pressure to biocrude. Metro Vancouver in C ... more

3D-printed permanent magnets outperform conventional versions, conserve rare materials

Researchers at the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory have demonstrated that permanent magnets produced by additive manufacturing can outperform bonded magnets made using traditional techniques while conserving critical materials. The project is part of DOE’s Critical Materials ... more

  • Thinking and Acting for the Long-Term

    Given the rising world population and the demands for growth and prosperity, the natural foundations of life and resources are under pressure. Using and maintaining these sustainably, both commercially and ecologically, is increasingly a focus in terms of corporate behavior. The demand for environmentally friendly processes and products is the catalyst for innovative achievements. more

  • Modular biofactories at the cellular level

    Despite his love for complex molecular architectures, this „dyed-in-the-wool“ bio-organic chemist has never embraced the conventional segregation of synthetic polymers and bio­logical macromolecules. All molecules are composed of atoms, after all. Why make an artificial distinction? Why not simply combine these domains together? more
