A start-up in Delft is growing microalgae in photobioreactors, refining it into a superfood, and bottling it as a naturally blue tonic.
Applied on an industrial scale, plastic-producing blue-green algae could potentially revolutionize the entire production of plastics.
The disappearance of coral (reefs) due to global warming is high on the agenda at practically every climate conference. This is not just because corals […]
The sea is home to the most successful bacteria on our planet. Marine bacteria’s relevance in the global nutrient cycle is well documented. It is […]
Scientists in Kiel, Germany, are researching a new method to break down plastic waste more quickly in a biological way.
Each week we follow up on a well-read story. This week space researcher Angelo Vermeulen and space entrepreneur Jeroen Rotteveel talk about a city on Mars.
Using simple, yet, effective methods, this Amsterdam-based start-up is bringing marine life back to our man-made waterways and dams.
Using a new method to monitor the water quality of reservoirs, developing countries can also monitor their freshwater reservoirs much more effectively.
Seaweed farms in the North Sea offer an answer to the increasing demand for seaweed. The farms are to be located between offshore wind farms at sea.
Research has shown that cyanobacteria can reproduce excellently under Martian conditions and thus form the basis for biological life support systems.
Plastic made from lipoic acid can be recycled into high-quality material, 87 percent can also be reused in the process. Which heralds a new environmentally friendly alternative to standard plastic.
Each week, we follow up on one of our best-read stories in this section. This week: can individually-calibrated LED lights improve the vision of people with eye conditions?
An interdisciplinary team of scientists from Jena and Ulm, Germany, is working on a new method to produce hydrogen using light and organic chemical-based photoactive compounds.
German researchers have developed a method to determine the vitality of cyanobacteria more quickly in order to make them suitable for the production of antibiotics.
British and Chinese scientists have modified algae cells so that they produce hydrogen rather than oxygen through photosynthesis when exposed to daylight.
Together with international colleagues, German scientists have designed a life-support system for the city of "Nüwa", which is to serve one million people on Mars.
Researchers at the Chair of Technical Biochemistry at the Technical University of Dresden will genomically study cyanobacteria species that have scarcely been researched over the coming years.
Researchers at BOKU Vienna have developed a unique global system that allows the simultaneous and accurate identification of 1400 contaminants in food within 42 minutes.
In this section we follow up on our best read stories of the week. This week's was all about how the essential vitamin B12 will soon end up in bread or yogurt.
