Joseph von Fraunhofer Prize: Car tires from dandelions

Scientists of Fraunhofer IME and Continental receive award 2015:
In a joint project, the Fraunhofer Institute for Molecular Biology and Applied Ecology IME, the Department of Biology and Biotechnology (IBBP) at the University of Münster and the tire manufacturer Continental, car tire prototypes made of dandelion rubber have been produced. For their work on the Russian dandelion and its application as a source of natural rubber, Dirk Prüfer and Christian Schulze Gronover of IME and IBBP as well as Carla Recker of Continental receive the 2015 Joseph von Fraunhofer Prize today in Wiesbaden, in the presence of German Federal President Joachim Gauck and the Premier of Hesse, Volker Bouffier.

The milky sap of the dandelion shows similarities to that of the rubber tree, and most importantly contains caoutchouc - the raw material for rubber production.

Self-duplication for manufacturing technology – Millions for Fraunhofer researcher

Prof. Alexander Böker, head of the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research IAP in Potsdam-Golm, Germany, has received the renowned ERC Consolidator Grant from the European Research Council (ERC). His research project RepliColl has been awarded funding of 1.9 million Euros over a period of five years. Böker and his team want to learn how to emulate self-replicating biological processes from nature's own DNA synthesis. His research should smooth the way for completely new technologies in manufacturing components for telecommunications and IT as well as for building blocks in the pharmaceutical branch and nanoelectronics.

Nature is master of the astonishing ability to duplicate itself. The self-replication of DNA and RNA molecules is the basis of human life. Prof. Böker would...

EU invests 10 million euros into a research infrastructure for aerosols, clouds and trace gases

The European Commission will fund the research infrastructure ACTRIS-2 with a total of 9.5 million euros until 2019. Thus, the existing network of ground-based long-term observatories for aerosols, clouds and trace gases can be further expanded. With long-term observations ACTRIS-2 contributes to climate-change research and the control of measures to improve air quality. The ACTRIS-2 Kick-off Meeting will be held in Rome from 3rd to 5th June 2015, hosted by the National Research Council (CNR) of Italy.

A total of 31 partners from 21 European countries are participating in the "Aerosols, Clouds, and Trace gases Research Infrastructure" (ACTRIS-2). The Leibniz...

Im Focus: Viaducts with wind turbines, the new renewable energy source

Wind turbines could be installed under some of the biggest bridges on the road network to produce electricity. So it is confirmed by calculations carried out by a European researchers team, that have taken a viaduct in the Canary Islands as a reference. This concept could be applied in heavily built-up territories or natural areas with new constructions limitations.

The Juncal Viaduct, in Gran Canaria, has served as a reference for Spanish and British researchers to verify that the wind blowing between the pillars on this...

Im Focus: X-rays and electrons join forces to map catalytic reactions in real-time

New technique combines electron microscopy and synchrotron X-rays to track chemical reactions under real operating conditions

A new technique pioneered at the U.S. Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratory reveals atomic-scale changes during catalytic reactions in real...

Im Focus: Iron: A biological element?

Think of an object made of iron: An I-beam, a car frame, a nail. Now imagine that half of the iron in that object owes its existence to bacteria living two and a half billion years ago.
