Renewable Fuels from Green Refineries

Consortium of Science and Industry Develops Processes and Demand Scenarios for the Mass Production of Synthetic Fuels


Synthetic fuels from renewable energy sources are needed to reach the climate goals in the transport sector. So-called refuels promise to reduce CO2 emissions by 90 percent compared to conventional fuels. To cover future needs of heavy-duty vehicles, airplanes, and ships and provide chemical ...

Battery recycling: 70 percent of lithium recovered

Inexpensive and environmentally compatible mechanochemical recycling process developed


Recover up to 70 percent of lithium from battery waste without the need for corrosive chemicals, high temperatures, or prior sorting of materials: This is made possible by a recycling method developed at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) that combines mechanical processes and chemical ...

Blind spots in the monitoring of plastic waste

KIT researchers and partners suspect that much more plastic is transported in flowing waters than previously assumed and are developing new modelling approaches


Whether in drinking water, food or even in the air: plastic is a global problem - and the full extent of this pollution may go beyond of what we know yet. Researchers at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), together with partners from the Netherlands and Australia, have reviewed ...

Joining forces: fast-as-lightning 3D microprinting with two lasers

Micrometer-sized Structures in Just the Blink of an Eye


Printing objects from plastic precisely, quickly, and inexpensively is the goal of many 3D printing processes. However, speed and high resolution remain a technological challenge. A research team from the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), Heidelberg University, and the Queensland ...

40-million-euro sustainable kerosene research project CARE-O-SENE receives funding

German-South African Consortium starts working to optimise the production of sustainable kerosene


The international research project CARE-O-SENE (Catalyst Research for Sustainable Kerosene) was granted 30 million euros in funding by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). Additionally, the industrial consortium partners contribute 10 million euros. The aim of the project ...

‘E-nose’ sniffs out mixtures of volatile organic compounds

Accurately distinguish xylene isomer mixtures


As paint thinner, ink and adhesives dry, they can release volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which can negatively impact health. Typically, one of those VOCs is xylene, which exists as three isomers with the same elements but slightly different arrangements. Because the isomers are so similar, ...

Neutrinos are lighter than 0.8 electron volts

KATRIN experiment with new world record for precision measurements


The international KArlsruhe TRItium Neutrino Experiment (KATRIN), located at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), has broken an important "barrier" in neutrino physics which is relevant for both particle physics and cosmology. Based on data published in the prestigious journal Nature Physics, ...

3D Laser Nanoprinters Become Compact

Researchers Show How 3-dimensional Nanostructures Can Be Printed Using Compact Desktop Devices


Lasers in conventional laser printers for paper printouts are very small. 3D laser printers for 3-dimensional microstructures and nanostructures, by contrast, have required big and expensive laser systems so far. Researchers of Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) and the Heidelberg University ...


image description
BASF and KIT join forces in public funded project to investigate opportunities of multilayered anodes for lithium-ion batteries

Knowledge transfer to foster coating technology in academia and to meet global customer demands


Electromobility is globally recognized as a decisive factor for achieving climate neutrality. High-performance lithium-ion batteries for electric vehicles play a key role to reach these goals. BASF is a leading player in the battery materials market focusing on high-performance cathode active ...
