Seagrass boosts biodiversity and provides clearer water by stabilizing the seabed. It also traps organic matter which is rich in carbon and nutrients.
Search Results for nitrogen
Cutting down on nitrogen is paramount when it comes to design, construction and utilities. Start-ups can carry out experiments at the NoNo house located on the grounds of TU Delft.
European study by Leuven University: nitrogen emissions are even more damaging to nature than expected, biodiversity at risk
“European targets for nitrogen deposition will have to be adjusted” A European study led by biologists from KU Leuven shows that nitrogen precipitation is “a […]
The lightweight structure restores natural connective routes and generates solar energy at the same time, optimising the space over highways.
Every day we put a start-up in the spotlight. Today it's Respire, which aims to make air pollution more tranparent by using data.
Belgian scientists from the University of Ghent (UGent) have developed a multifunctional agricultural robot that makes genuine sustainable farming much easier. The robot works the […]
With minor adjustments, Norwegian scientist Gruber says it is quite possible to run ocean-going vessels on ammonia instead of heavy fuel oil.
In the Belgian recreational area Blaarmeersen, many people have to pee every day. This is now being collected and reused as rinse water and fertilizer.
Field beans are deadly for some people. Scientists have found the gene that causes this problem. The bean is a great alternative to soy.
Scientists at the Fraunhofer Institute for Ceramic Technologies and Systems IKTS in Germany have developed innovative "μPCR" lab modules to significantly speed up PCR lab tests
Each week, we follow up on one of our well-read stories. This week: turning sugar beets into protein using fermentation.
Martien Visser takes a closer look at the IEA's Net-Zero scenario. "What if from 2040 onwards, climate change leads to prolonged winter periods with no wind in the North Sea?"
Dutch Technology Week Talk: Start-ups share their story about starting and growing in Food-, Med- and High Tech
Starting and growing in tech is the focus all week long during the Dutch Technology Week. Start-ups in Med Tech, Food Tech and High Tech share their success stories.
Significant climate gains to be made by accelerating ban on sale of cars with internal combustion engines
A study by Sweden's Chalmers University has once again shown that electric cars really are better for the climate, but work still needs to be done when it comes to battery production.
As part of the EU-funded FReSMe project, scientists are researching the possibility of producing the climate-friendly fuel methanol from the harmful climate gas CO2.
CO2-neutral living and working is a goal for many people. But how do you achieve it? We need the tools to make it work in practice.
Each week, we follow up on a well-read story in this section. This week: will we get a clean combustion engine that runs on gas?
At TU Eindhoven, they see great potential for revolutionary internal combustion engine that is not only highly efficient, but clean as well.
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.
"You will have to be very sure that electric flying will not succeed to invest now in any other form of medium distance transport."
