CNR-Conference: HYST Technology: Food and Sustainable Energy from Biomass

20.02.2012
23 February 2012 - 10.00 a.m. to 13.00 p.m.
CNR: Research Area Rome1
Via Salaria Km 29.300 Montelibretti (Rome)

On 23 February 2012 the CNR (National Research Council) and the Scienza per l’Amore Association, in collaboration with BioHyst, are organising the conference “HYST Technology: Food and Sustainable Energy from Biomass”.

HYST Technology (Patent Application WO 2011/061595A1) is a system for treating biomass which, through a purely physical action, breaks down plant structures via multiple high speed collisions between fragments of material being processed.

It is therefore a simple procedure, at low cost with zero environmental impact; an alternative to common processes which modify matter via chemical and thermochemical procedures.

Results achieved so far justify the belief that the HYST system can be a solution for enhancing the use of biomass, among which residues and by-products, in order to harmonize food and energy needs. Using the same biomass for more than one purpose is the turning point of this project: a resource for food, energy, chemical and pharmaceutical industries.

HYST technology stems from a humanitarian project, today called Bits of Future: Food for All, promoted by the Scienza per l’Amore Association. The aim of this project is to sustain growth in Developing Countries by optimising, through HYST, the use of local resources to fight hunger, poverty and energy shortages.

Within this context, this Conference intends to represent an opportunity for encounter and discussion between researchers, socio-economic reality and industry, in order to analyse the results achieved and trace out new routes for research and development.

Im Focus: Manipulating Electron Spins Without Loss of Information

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...

Im Focus: The proton precisely weighted

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...
