alcanoic acids (PHB) from substrates which are potentially
ecotoxic. The inventive method for the continuous production of PHB is characterised in that strains of micro-organisms which are known to form PHB are bred chemostatically with maximum heat production on substrates which present growth inhibition with a substrate surplus.
The advantages are, compared to other methods, that the invention represents a relatively cost-efficient way of microbial synthesis of polyhydroxyalcanoic acids. Waste products from chemical industries and agricultulture may be used for synthesis of PHB (utilizing phenol or benzoate as alternative carbon-sources). Thus, enabling simultaneous synthesis of useful materials as well as disposal of hazardous substances. The maximum heat produced is adjusted according to a
maximum proportion of PHB contained in the biomass.

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.
The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...
