  • Technology clears way for ethanol-derived jet fuel

    ASTM International recently revised ASTM D7566 Annex A5 -- the Standard Specification for Aviation Turbine Fuel Containing Synthesized Hydrocarbons -- to add ethanol as an approved feedstock for producing alcohol-to-jet synthetic paraffinic kerosene (ATJ-SPK). The revision of ASTM D7566 Annex A5 cle more

  • A path to sustainable and biodegradable polyesters

    There's a good chance you've touched something made out of the polyolefin polymer today. It's often used in polyethylene products like plastic bags or polypropylene products like diapers. As useful as polyolefins are in society, they continue to multiply as trash in the environment. Scientists estim 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

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

  • 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

  • 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
