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: Highly precise wiring in the Cerebral Cortex

Our brains house extremely complex neuronal circuits, whose detailed structures are still largely unknown. This is especially true for the so-called cerebral cortex of mammals, where among other things vision, thoughts or spatial orientation are being computed. Here the rules by which nerve cells are connected to each other are only partly understood. A team of scientists around Moritz Helmstaedter at the Frankfiurt Max Planck Institute for Brain Research and Helene Schmidt (Humboldt University in Berlin) have now discovered a surprisingly precise nerve cell connectivity pattern in the part of the cerebral cortex that is responsible for orienting the individual animal or human in space.

The researchers report online in Nature (Schmidt et al., 2017. Axonal synapse sorting in medial entorhinal cortex, DOI: 10.1038/nature24005) that synapses in...

Im Focus: Tiny lasers from a gallery of whispers

New technique promises tunable laser devices

Whispering gallery mode (WGM) resonators are used to make tiny micro-lasers, sensors, switches, routers and other devices. These tiny structures rely on a...

Im Focus: Ultrafast snapshots of relaxing electrons in solids

Using ultrafast flashes of laser and x-ray radiation, scientists at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics (Garching, Germany) took snapshots of the briefest electron motion inside a solid material to date. The electron motion lasted only 750 billionths of the billionth of a second before it fainted, setting a new record of human capability to capture ultrafast processes inside solids!

When x-rays shine onto solid materials or large molecules, an electron is pushed away from its original place near the nucleus of the atom, leaving a hole...

Im Focus: Quantum Sensors Decipher Magnetic Ordering in a New Semiconducting Material

For the first time, physicists have successfully imaged spiral magnetic ordering in a multiferroic material. These materials are considered highly promising candidates for future data storage media. The researchers were able to prove their findings using unique quantum sensors that were developed at Basel University and that can analyze electromagnetic fields on the nanometer scale. The results – obtained by scientists from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics, the Swiss Nanoscience Institute, the University of Montpellier and several laboratories from University Paris-Saclay – were recently published in the journal Nature.

Multiferroics are materials that simultaneously react to electric and magnetic fields. These two properties are rarely found together, and their combined...
