Within the scope of NanoBAK, the ttz Bremerhaven and its project partners developed and evaluated a novel and market-ready climate chamber with a Nano-Aerosol Humidification System: ultrasound sets water molecules into oscillation, whereby smallest droplets are formed which are then channeled into the fermentation chamber. Here the fine mist gets into the dough. In the end, the constant distribution of humidity in the fermentation chamber allows the production of bakery goods on a high quality level. Not only does the novel technique increase the durability of baking products, it does also give rolls an appealing shine, a better fenestration and a consistent crust.
Additionally and more importantly, the technology leads to considerable energy savings. The humidification system, which usually has the second largest energy demand in the fermentation process, becomes negligible with the NanoBAK technology (only 2 % of conventional humidifiers). The energy demand of the whole fermentation process is reduced by up to 50% when using the NanoBAK technology. Using the NanoBAK technology will therefore provide substantial economical and ecological advantages to the entire baking industry.
The aim of the NanoBAK project is to test, evaluate and optimize the innovative humidification system. Crucial to achieving this aim is the MicroTec technology which targets the production of high-quality and long-lasting bakery products by the realization of a constant humidity distribution and the reduction of energy consumption during the fermentation process.NanoBAK is a collaborative project funded by the European Commission under the 7th Framework Program.

Team develops fast, cheap method to make supercapacitor electrodes

Physicists have developed a new technique that uses electrical voltages to control the electron spin on a chip. The newly-developed method provides protection from spin decay, meaning that the contained information can be maintained and transmitted over comparatively large distances, as has been demonstrated by a team from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics and the Swiss Nanoscience Institute. The results have been published in Physical Review X.
For several years, researchers have been trying to use the spin of an electron to store and transmit information. The spin of each electron is always coupled...
What is the mass of a proton? Scientists from Germany and Japan successfully did an important step towards the most exact knowledge of this fundamental constant. By means of precision measurements on a single proton, they could improve the precision by a factor of three and also correct the existing value.
To determine the mass of a single proton still more accurate – a group of physicists led by Klaus Blaum and Sven Sturm of the Max Planck Institute for Nuclear...
