An Integrated Approach for Industrial Symbiosis: the CORALIS project

Industrial Symbiosis (IS) aims to mimic the functioning of ecological systems. A consortium of 29 partners will work together aiming at: Decarbonising the resource and energy intensive industry sectors (REIIs) The European Commission is not responsible for any use that may be made of the information it contains. The project has received funding from the European Unions Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 958337.

What is the carbon footprint of space travel?

Two astronauts successfully left the earths atmosphere to dock with the international space station on a semi re-usable rocket. This was clearly an incredible achievement and returned the USA to the forefront of space travel. In addition this significant step moves us closer to manned.

How will energy look in 2030? My 10 predictions for the next 10 years!

Ten years ago Matt Cardle was Christmas number one (anyone remember Mr Cardle?) and David Cameron had just started his 6 years in office. The UK Government predicted in its base case energy scenario that in 2020 electricity generation would be delivered with 75T.

Two walls may beat one for solar-panel nanotubes

Engineers already knew that size matters when using single-walled carbon nanotubes for their electrical properties. Until now, nobody had studied how electrons act when confronted with the Russian doll-like structure of multiwalled tubes. Now, researchers have calculated.

Calorimeters for thermal propagation research on Lithium-ion batteries

Lithium-ion batteries have the advantages of high energy density, fast charge/discharge ability, no memory effect and low self-discharge. The last step is to prevent the propagation of the thermal runaway from one cell to the neighbouring cells.
