Novel catalytic process for converting CO2 into valuable chemical intermediates in the form of cyclic carbonates
Carbon dioxide (CO2) is not just an undesirable greenhouse gas, it is also an interesting source of raw materials that are valuable and can be recycled sustainably. In the journal Angewandte Chemie, Spanish researchers have now introduced a novel catalytic process for convertingCO2 into valuable ...
Research is seeking a solution for used tyres by means of catalytic pyrolysis
Used tyres pose a serious environmental risk owing to the damage that may be caused when they are stored in the environment. They are emerging in ever greater numbers from one year to the next in developed countries so revalorizing them is a subject that is attracting great interest and is being ...
Subsurface chemical nanoidentification by nano-FTIR spectroscopy
Researchers from the Nanooptics Group at CIC nanoGUNE (San Sebastian) demonstrate that nanoscale infrared imaging - which is established as a surface-sensitive technique - can be employed for chemical nanoidentification of materials that are located up to 100 nm below the surface. The results ...
Graphene is a diamagnetic material, this is, unable of becoming magnetic. However, a triangular piece of graphene is predicted to be magnetic. This apparent contradiction is a consequence of "magic" shapes in the structure of graphene flakes, which force electrons to "spin" easier in one ...
The new crystalline material is stable at high temperatures
Researchers at the Institute of Chemical Technology, a joint centre of the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC) and the Polytechnic University of Valencia, have developed a new zeolitic catalyst stable at high temperatures that could have industrial applications in the production of ...
The production of 1-butene via ethylene dimerization is one of the few industrial processes that employs homogeneous catalysis due to their high selectivity--despite the massive amounts of activators and solvents required. Now, a new paper by the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU), in ...
Detecting terahertz (THz) light is extremely useful for two main reasons: Firstly, THz technology is becoming a key element in applications regarding security (such as airport scanners), wireless data communication, and quality control, to mention just a few. However, current THz detectors have ...
New global digital center in Madrid
In February 2019, BASF has founded the new company BASF Digital Solutions S.L. located in Madrid, Spain to drive forward the digital transformation of BASF group and develop innovative IT solutions. BASF plans to grow the center to more than 300 digital specialists within the next years. “We want ...
The German STOCKMEIER Group acquires the industrial chemicals distribution division of Indukern, company of the Spanish INDUKERN Group on 01.03.2019. The business is taken over by the newly founded STOCKMEIER Química SLU. INDUKERN is a Spanish company belonging to INDUKERN Group and Díaz-Varela ...
Generating 1,200 MWh per year, avoiding more than 479 tons of CO2
Almirall, S.A has completed the construction of an innovative 800 kWp photovoltaic plant, located in its pharmaceutical plant in Sant Andreu de la Barca (Barcelona), which aims to save 12% of the electrical energy consumption from the site. This initiative is part of the company's policy to ...
