Researchers are embarking on an ambitious four-year project to explore some of the deepest, coldest and hottest places on the planet. The aim is to collect and screen samples of mud and sediment from huge, previously untapped, oceanic trenches, more than 8,000 metres deep. [read more]
Although fossil oils are dwindling, they are still our main energy source and continue to dominate the global chemical industry. However, the European Union (EU)-funded research project ICON helped breed crops to produce high-value plant oils that are expected to break the chemical sector's dependence on petroleum. [read more]

This workshop aims to identify workable solutions to the major hurdles hampering the development of the bio-based plastics sector in the EU. We are especially interested in PLA and PHA as we consider these bio-based plastics as having the highest potential for deployment in the EU. Input from market, policy and technological experts within the area of bioplastics is crucial to allow us to develop recommendations which best answer the needs of industry. Today, bio-based plastics have an established market, demonstrating rapid growth both in Europe and globally. While Europe is currently the largest producer and user of bio-based plastics, this situation is expected to change in the future with production increasingly being based in countries where feedstocks are cheaper and where production costs are lower.

The BIO-TIC project has organised this workshop with the aim to identify technological, non-technological and market hurdles for the uptake of industrial biotechnology in CO2 based chemicals production and develop recommendations and solutions to overcome the identified hurdles. Input from market, policy and technological experts is crucial to help us develop recommendations which best answer the needs of industry and further build on the roadmaps. CO2 is increasingly being considered by many as a commodity rather than a waste product. The largest current use for CO2 is currently in enhanced oil recovery. [read more]
This workshop aims to identify workable solutions to the major hurdles and concerns hampering the development of the biobased chemicals sector in the EU. We are especially interested in views on 3HPA, succinic acid, PDO, furfural, and isoprene as we consider these chemical building blocks to have the highest potential for deployment in the EU.Input from market, policy and technological experts within the area of chemical building blocks is crucial to allow us to develop recommendations which best answer the needs of industry. Chemical building blocks provide routes to a wide range of different products and chemicals and, in turn, an astonishing range of different downstream uses. [read more]
Sandra Šopić, Johannes Jobst, André Dankert, and Zhenyuan Xia were the four individuals who produced the best posters, chosen from more than 400 posters presented over four afternoons during Graphene Week 2014. The winners were selected by the Conference Programme Committee and a number of independent referees for their scientific contribution and clarity of presentation. Each poster session winner received a prize of €300, sponsored by the science journals EPL and AIP. & Looking ahead to next year Graphene Week at Manchester in 2015 & Watch the video messages of presentations given [read more]
