Plastic recycling is still in its infancy - only a small part of the waste is recyclable. Natural enzymes could get the circular economy going.
The 'Luxembourg in Transition' project aims to make the Grande Région carbon neutral. Multidisciplinary research teams are developing visionary models that can be implemented by 2050
Economic after-use of lithium car batteries would be possible, but has so far failed due to open safety issues. The Graz University of Technology in Austria is researching the parameters.
Lubricating with water sounds like a contradiction. But not for Reintrieb: The start-up has developed an oil-free lubrication system for gearboxes.
Less water, no pesticides! A research project in Gujarat, India, aims to show that cotton can be grown in a resource-efficient way - even in heat and drought
European researchers want to get hybrid-electric aircraft off the ground. Their path leads via the structural battery, which will be demonstrated for the first time for an aviation application.
The Brenner Base Tunnel will relieve transit traffic between Italy and Austria and, incidentally, supply parts of Innsbruck with geothermal energy. The source of energy is the tunnel water.
Munich has the world's first fully automated sensor network for measuring urban greenhouse gas emissions based on ground-based remote sensing of the atmosphere.
An international team from TU Munich and Airbus Helicopters (AH) is working on technical solutions to make helicopters faster, more environmentally friendly and quieter in the future.
Neural networks for artificial intelligence can be both simpler and smarter. The efficient nervous system of the threadworm demonstrates this.
As a "role model for the sustainable mobility of tomorrow," the "M Cube" future cluster of the Technical University of Munich has won funding from the federal government in the "Clusters4Future" compe
Mannheim scholars explore the impact of smart cities and AI on urban life and social inequality in practical use cases.
Aniela Hoitink thinks that it is easier to change fashion production than consumer behavior. With fabric made of compostable mycelium (mushroom roots) she could succeed.
Battery-powered charging stations, a self-propelled passenger transport system with 100 million kilometres travelled and smart radar systems.
Where once coal waited to be shoveled onto train cars, the Kohlebunker in Freimann, just north of Munich, now hosts companies at the cutting edge […]
