Polymers and Fuels from Renewable Resources

Prof. Charlotte K. Williams from Oxford University / UK receives the Otto Roelen Medal 2018. This prize will be awarded by DECHEMA and the German Catalysis Society in recognition of her developments in the field of highly active catalysts for carbon dioxide copolymerization. This enables renewable resources such as carbon dioxide and plants to be converted into polymers and fuels. The award ceremony will take place on 15 March 2018 during the 51th Annual Meeting of German Catalysis Scientists in Weimar / Germany.

These tailor-made catalysts are capable of converting carbon dioxide, including waste emissions from industrial manufacture, into polycarbonate polyols.

Fraunhofer HHI receives AIS Technology Innovation Award 2018 for 3D Human Body Reconstruction

Volumetric video is regarded worldwide as the next important development step in the field of media production. Especially in the context of the extremely rapid development of the Virtual Reality (VR) und Augmented Reality (AR) markets, volumetric video is becoming a key technology. The researchers from Fraunhofer HHI have developed an awarded technology for volumetric video: 3D Human Body Reconstruction (3DHBR). This innovative technology transmits the realistic image of a person into a virtual world.

The 3D Human Body Reconstruction technology captures real persons with multiple cameras at the same time and creates naturally moving dynamic 3D models, which...

Im Focus: Researchers Discover New Anti-Cancer Protein

An international team of researchers has discovered a new anti-cancer protein. The protein, called LHPP, prevents the uncontrolled proliferation of cancer cells in the liver. The researchers led by Prof. Michael N. Hall from the Biozentrum, University of Basel, report in “Nature” that LHPP can also serve as a biomarker for the diagnosis and prognosis of liver cancer.

The incidence of liver cancer, also known as hepatocellular carcinoma, is steadily increasing. In the last twenty years, the number of cases has almost doubled...

Im Focus: Researchers at Fraunhofer monitor re-entry of Chinese space station Tiangong-1

In just a few weeks from now, the Chinese space station Tiangong-1 will re-enter the Earth's atmosphere where it will to a large extent burn up. It is possible that some debris will reach the Earth's surface. Tiangong-1 is orbiting the Earth uncontrolled at a speed of approx. 29,000 km/h.Currently the prognosis relating to the time of impact currently lies within a window of several days. The scientists at Fraunhofer FHR have already been monitoring Tiangong-1 for a number of weeks with their TIRA system, one of the most powerful space observation radars in the world, with a view to supporting the German Space Situational Awareness Center and the ESA with their re-entry forecasts.

Following the loss of radio contact with Tiangong-1 in 2016 and due to the low orbital height, it is now inevitable that the Chinese space station will...

Oceans formed before Tharsis and evolved together, shaping climate history of Mars

A new scenario seeking to explain how Mars' putative oceans came and went over the last 4 billion years implies that the oceans formed several hundred million...

Im Focus: Tiny implants for cells are functional in vivo

For the first time, an interdisciplinary team from the University of Basel has succeeded in integrating artificial organelles into the cells of live zebrafish embryos. This innovative approach using artificial organelles as cellular implants offers new potential in treating a range of diseases, as the authors report in an article published in Nature Communications.

In the cells of higher organisms, organelles such as the nucleus or mitochondria perform a range of complex functions necessary for life. In the networks of...
