BASF and Sichuan Lutianhua Co., Ltd. (Lutianhua) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to co-develop a pilot production plant, that will significantly reduce carbon emissions and increase energy efficiency in producing dimethyl ether (DME) from syngas compared to the traditional process. DME ...
Merck announced that its transaction with Versum Materials, Inc. was approved at a special meeting of Versum’s stockholders. On April12, 2019, Merck had signed a definitive agreement to acquire Versum for US$53 per share in cash. “We are pleased that Versum stockholders have voted in favor of us ...
Raimar Jahn (61), President, Performance Materials, BASF Belgium Coordination Center Comm. V., Waterloo, will retire effective August 31, 2019. Martin Jung (50), Senior Vice President, Surface Treatment, Chemetall GmbH, Frankfurt, will join Performance Materials on August 1, 2019, and will, as ...
With the support of the Austrian Science Fund FWF, the chemist Zita Csendes has defined and tested iron complexes as a sustainable, inexpensive and efficient alternative to precious-metal catalysts. The shift from catalyst solution to reusable pore coating required mastering many chemical ...
How new phase-change materials could lead to more efficient and faster data storage technologies
Phase-change materials are used in the latest generation of smartphones enabling higher storage densities and energy efficiency. Data is recorded by switching between glassy and crystalline material states by applying a heat pulse. However, to date it has not been possible to study what happens ...
Two-Step Saccharification of Rice Straw Using Solid Acid Catalysts
An international collaboration led by scientists at Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology (TUAT) , Japan, has developed a two-step method to more efficiently break down carbohydrates into their single sugar components, a critical process in producing green fuel. The breakdown process is ...
Carbon-neutral fuel made from sunlight and air: Two spin-offs already founded
Researchers from ETH Zurich have developed a novel technology that produces liquid hydrocarbon fuels exclusively from sunlight and air. For the first time worldwide they demonstrate the entire thermochemical process chain under real field conditions. The new solar mini-refinery is located on the ...
Milestone for compact particle accelerators
A team of scientists from DESY and the University of Hamburg has achieved an important milestone in the quest for a new type of compact particle accelerator. Using ultra-powerful pulses of laser light, they were able to produce particularly high-energy flashes of radiation in the terahertz range ...
New anode could help create a safer high energy lithium metal battery
Researchers from Carnegie Mellon University's Mellon College of Science and College of Engineering have developed a semiliquid lithium metal-based anode that represents a new paradigm in battery design. Lithium batteries made using this new electrode type could have a higher capacity and be much ...
Simulations show new methods for efficient polarization: Physicists from the Max Planck Institute for Nuclear Physics in Heidelberg proposed novel methods for generation of relativistic spin polarized electron and positron beams. Using extensive simulations, they found three different scenarios ...
