Development of sustainable marine fuels

EU research project IDEALFUEL has started

29-Jun-2020

In an EU-funded research project, an international consortium aims to develop new production methods for sustainable marine fuels to replace heavy fuel oils in shipping. The use of heavy fuel oils (HFOs) contributes to global warming due to the fossil origin of these fuels and, moreover, ...

Sweet or Sour Natural Gas

Polyimide membranes for the purification of natural gas

26-Jun-2020

Natural gas that contains larger amounts of hydrogen sulfide (H2S) and carbon dioxide (CO2) is termed sour gas. Before it can enter a pipeline, it must be “sweetened” by removal of its acidic impurities. Through fine tuning of the ratios of two molecular components, it is possible to produce ...

Levitating droplets allows to perform 'touchless' chemical reactions

Contact-free experiments without containers or handling that might affect the outcome

26-Jun-2020

Levitation has long been a staple of magic tricks and movies. But in the lab, it's no trick. Scientists can levitate droplets of liquid, though mixing them and observing the reactions has been challenging. The pay-off, however, could be big as it would allow researchers to conduct contact-free ...
