German Materials Efficiency Prize 2008 - Apply now!

15.08.2008
The cost of materials is of substantial importance for the competitiveness of German industry. In any manufacturing industry, material costs estimated to be approximately 42 % represent the greatest cost component, exceeding personnel costs by more than twice (19 %).

The German Materials Efficiency Prize will be awarded by the Federal Ministry for Economics and Technology for the fifth time this year. Medium-size enterprises, which have increased their materials efficiency by innovative solutions in development, design, production and organization, can apply for the award up to 1 September 2008.

10,000 euro will be granted to each of the five best concepts. The award ceremony will take place within a conference on the improvement of materials and energy efficiency of medium-size enterprises in Berlin on 16 October 2008.

The BAM Federal Institute for Materials Research and Testing has been commissioned to manage this competition. Contact partner is Dr. Franz-Georg Simon, member in the advisory panel of the German Materials Efficiency Agency (Deutsche Materialeffizienzagentur) and Head of BAM Division IV.3 Waste Treatment and Remedial Engineering.

Im Focus: Giant Magnetic Fields in the Universe

Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.

The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.

Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...

Im Focus: Tracing down linear ubiquitination

Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.

Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Im Focus: Polymer-coated silicon nanosheets as alternative to graphene: A perfect team for nanoelectronics

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.

Im Focus: Researchers Imitate Molecular Crowding in Cells

Enzymes behave differently in a test tube compared with the molecular scrum of a living cell. Chemists from the University of Basel have now been able to simulate these confined natural conditions in artificial vesicles for the first time. As reported in the academic journal Small, the results are offering better insight into the development of nanoreactors and artificial organelles.
