Biotechnological solutions for degradation and recycling of plastics
Plastics are wonderful materials. They are extremely versatile and of almost eternal durability. But that also causes a problem. After around 100 years of plastic production, plastic particles are almost everywhere: in ground water, the oceans, the air and the food chain. Across the globe, ...
A research team from the University of Greifswald and Helmholtz-Zentrum-Berlin (HZB) has solved the molecular structure of the important enzyme MHETase at BESSY II. MHETase was discovered in bacteria and together with a second enzyme - PETase - is able to break down the widely used plastic PET ...
New material increases efficiency
Electronic devices such as computers generate heat that mostly goes to waste. Physicists at Bielefeld University have found a way to use this energy: They apply the heat to generate magnetic signals known as 'spin currents'. In future, these signals could replace some of the electrical current in ...
A new generation of microbial fuel cells demonstrates amazingly high current density
Fuel cells could be the energy source of the future for many applications, including in vehicles. The direct transformation of chemical to electrical energy without a detour involving combustion is what makes this technology so environmentally friendly. The breakthrough into broad usage hasn't ...
