Nouryon announced that five manufacturing sites are carbon neutral. This achievement supports the company’s sustainability agenda, ‘Commitment to a Sustainable Future’, which includes targets to reduce operational greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 40% by 2030, versus a 2019 base year, as well as ...
The new nano-sensors employ a 1970s discovery
Researchers at Karolinska Institutet in Sweden have developed a tiny sensor for detecting pesticides on fruit in just a few minutes. The technique, described as a proof-of-concept in a paper in the journal Advanced Science, uses flame-sprayed nanoparticles made from silver to increase the signal ...
Perstorp Group said that it is to be acquired by PETRONAS Chemicals Group Berhad (PCG). PCG announced that it has signed a Securities Purchase Agreement on 14 May 2022 to acquire the entire equity interest in Perstorp Holding AB. The agreement was signed with Financière Forêt S.à.r.l, a company ...
Live view into methanol synthesis
An international research team led by researchers of Stockholm University has for the first time been able to study the surface of a copper-zinc catalyst when carbon dioxide is reduced to methanol. The results – obtained at DESY´s brilliant light source PETRAIII – are published in the scientific ...
Important piece of the puzzle in reducing the levels of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere in the future
A research team led by Lund University in Sweden has shown how solar power can convert carbon dioxide into fuel, by using advanced materials and ultra-fast laser spectroscopy. The breakthrough could be an important piece of the puzzle in reducing the levels of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere ...
Sustainably produced nanotechnology
New research results from Linnaeus University opens for a future with more sustainably produced nanotechnology, where limited natural resources can be replaced with, among other things, maize and milk proteins. Nanotechnology can be found almost everywhere in our daily lives, although it is ...
“The common belief was that PFAS would eventually wash off into the oceans where they would stay to be diluted over the timescale of decades”
Many of the per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) that end up in the ocean boomerang back to shore after they are re-emitted into air with the crashing of waves, according to a study by researchers at Stockholm University published inEnvironmental Science & Technology. The findings suggest ...
How do pollutants and other chemicals that we are exposed to affect our health?
Researchers from Linköping University in Sweden have applied a method to identify the proteins in the body affected by chemicals. The method can be used to discover at an early stage whether a substance has biological effects in an organism. They are in the water we drink, the food we eat and the ...
"We were amazed by the performance of the new materials"
Researchers at Stockholm University have developed a resource-efficient method to produce new lignin-based materials that can be thermally reprocessed and used to substitute thermosetting resins and adhesives. Modern societies need to find alternatives to materials that are derived from fossil ...
One of the solar energy market’s most promising solar cell materials—perovskite—is also the most frustrating. A research team in Sweden reports a possible solution to the environmental instability of perovskite—an alternative to silicon that’s cheap and highly efficient, yet degrades dramatically ...
