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.

In a recent publication in the renowned journal Optica, scientists of Leibniz-Institute of Photonic Technology (Leibniz IPHT) in Jena showed that they can accurately control the optical properties of liquid-core fiber lasers and therefore their spectral band width by temperature and pressure tuning.
Already last year, the researchers provided experimental proof of a new dynamic of hybrid solitons– temporally and spectrally stationary light waves resulting...

Moving into its fourth decade, AchemAsia is setting out for new horizons: The International Expo and Innovation Forum for Sustainable Chemical Production will take place from 21-23 May 2019 in Shanghai, China. With an updated event profile, the eleventh edition focusses on topics that are especially relevant for the Chinese process industry, putting a strong emphasis on sustainability and innovation.
Founded in 1989 as a spin-off of ACHEMA to cater to the needs of China’s then developing industry, AchemAsia has since grown into a platform where the latest...
The BMBF-funded OWICELLS project was successfully completed with a final presentation at the BMW plant in Munich. The presentation demonstrated a Li-Fi communication with a mobile robot, while the robot carried out usual production processes (welding, moving and testing parts) in a 5x5m² production cell. The robust, optical wireless transmission is based on spatial diversity; in other words, data is sent and received simultaneously by several LEDs and several photodiodes. The system can transmit data at more than 100 Mbit/s and five milliseconds latency.
Modern production technologies in the automobile industry must become more flexible in order to fulfil individual customer requirements.
An international team of scientists has discovered a new way to transfer image information through multimodal fibers with almost no distortion - even if the fiber is bent. The results of the study, to which scientist from the Leibniz-Institute of Photonic Technology Jena (Leibniz IPHT) contributed, were published on 6thJune in the highly-cited journal Physical Review Letters.
Endoscopes allow doctors to see into a patient’s body like through a keyhole. Typically, the images are transmitted via a bundle of several hundreds of optical...
