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.

Staphylococcus aureus is a feared pathogen (MRSA, multi-resistant S. aureus) due to frequent resistances against many antibiotics, especially in hospital infections. Researchers at the Paul-Ehrlich-Institut have identified immunological processes that prevent a successful immune response directed against the pathogenic agent. The delivery of bacterial proteins with RNA adjuvant or messenger RNA (mRNA) into immune cells allows the re-direction of the immune response towards an active defense against S. aureus. This could be of significant importance for the development of an effective vaccine. PLOS Pathogens has published these research results online on 25 May 2017.
Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) is a bacterium that colonizes by far more than half of the skin and the mucosa of adults, usually without causing infections....
Physicists from the University of Würzburg are capable of generating identical looking single light particles at the push of a button. Two new studies now demonstrate the potential this method holds.
The quantum computer has fuelled the imagination of scientists for decades: It is based on fundamentally different phenomena than a conventional computer....
An international team of physicists has monitored the scattering behaviour of electrons in a non-conducting material in real-time. Their insights could be beneficial for radiotherapy.
We can refer to electrons in non-conducting materials as ‘sluggish’. Typically, they remain fixed in a location, deep inside an atomic composite. It is hence...
Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.
Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...
