4th Green Chemistry and the Consumer Symposium: Measuring Green
The Green Chemistry Network will hold the 4th Green Chemistry and the Consumer Symposium on 28th June 2007 at the King’s Manor in York, UK.
The Green Chemistry and the Consumer annual symposia bring together a diverse audience of representatives from consumer product supply chains, academics, NGOs, government, trade associations, media and other stakeholders to learn about green chemistry solutions for sustainable product supply chains.
The fourth symposium, 'Measuring Green: Green performance indicators across the chemical product lifecycle', will explore key criteria for measuring the green credentials of chemical products at all stages in their lifecycle, including case studies on successful methods developed by industry and challenges in practice.
Speakers include representatives from GlaxoSmithKline, BASF, InterfaceFLOR, Ecover, B&Q, GreenBlue and Biffa. The symposium is open to all and is aimed at organisations and individuals with an interest in green chemistry and sustainable chemical products.
Further details and a registration form can be found at http://www.chemsoc.org/networks/gcn/

New success for Konstanz physicists in studying the quantum vacuum
An important step towards a completely new experimental access to quantum physics has been made at University of Konstanz. The team of scientists headed by...
HZI researchers decipher infection mechanisms of Yersinia and immune responses of the host
Yersiniae cause severe intestinal infections. Studies using Yersinia pseudotuberculosis as a model organism aim to elucidate the infection mechanisms of these...
Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.
While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...
Laser-driving of semimetals allows creating novel quasiparticle states within condensed matter systems and switching between different states on ultrafast time scales
Studying properties of fundamental particles in condensed matter systems is a promising approach to quantum field theory. Quasiparticles offer the opportunity...
Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.
As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...
