Enzymes could make many chemical conversions more efficient, more sustainable and more affordable - and marine microbes produce an abundant variety of these biological catalysts, say EU-funded researchers who set out to find new ones for use in industry. A vast collection, new knowledge, four patents and a start-up are the result.

Photo of article Wasserroboter überwachen Klimawandelfolgen in venezianischer Lagune

Klimawandel, Umweltverschmutzung, Massentourismus und invasive Arten richten in großen Lagunenregionen wie Venedig verheerende Schäden an. Zur Überwachung – und Linderung – der Folgen für die Unterwasserwelt nutzt ein EU-finanziertes Projekt kleine autonome Wasserroboter. Forschende führen nun gleichzeitig Messungen an verschiedenen Punkten durch, was im Kampf gegen den Klimawandel sehr hilfreich sein wird.

Photo of article Aquatic robots to monitor how climate change impacts Venice's lagoon

Climate change, pollution, mass tourism, and invasive species are wreaking havoc on large lagoon areas like Venice. To help monitor - and mitigate - the impact these factors have underwater, one EU-funded project is using a swarm of autonomous aquatic robots. As a result, researchers can now take multiple measurements at the same time and from different places, which will be hugely beneficial in the fight against climate change.

Photo of article Des robots aquatiques pour surveiller l'impact du changement climatique sur la lagune de Venise

Le changement climatique, la pollution, le tourisme de masse et les espèces invasives font des ravages dans les grandes zones lagunaires comme Venise. Pour aider à surveiller, et atténuer, l’impact de ces facteurs sous l’eau, un projet financé par l’UE utilise une flotte de robots aquatiques autonomes. Les chercheurs peuvent donc désormais prendre plusieurs mesures simultanées à différents endroits, ce qui sera extrêmement utile dans la lutte contre le changement climatique.

Photo of article Robot acquatici per monitorare gli effetti dei cambiamenti climatici sulla laguna di Venezia

Cambiamenti climatici, inquinamento, turismo di massa e specie invasive scatenano il caos in vaste aree lagunari come Venezia. Per monitorare e ridurre l’impatto di tali fattori sott’acqua, un progetto finanziato dall’UE sta utilizzando uno sciame di robot acquatici autonomi. In questo modo, i ricercatori possono effettuare, allo stesso tempo e da posti differenti, varie misurazioni estremamente utili nella lotta contro i cambiamenti climatici.

Zmiany klimatu, zanieczyszczenia, masowa turystyka i gatunki inwazyjne sieją spustoszenie na dużych obszarach laguny, takich jak Wenecja. W finansowanym przez UE projekcie wykorzystano rój autonomicznych robotów, by monitorować i łagodzić wpływ tych zmian na środowisko wodne. Dzięki niemu badacze mogą zebrać jednocześnie wiele danych z różnych miejsc, co pomoże w walce ze skutkami zmian klimatu.

Photo of article Robots acuáticos para vigilar cómo afecta el cambio climático a la laguna de Venecia

El cambio climático, la contaminación, el turismo masivo y las especies invasoras causan estragos en grandes áreas lacustres como Venecia. Un proyecto de la UE usa un enjambre de robots acuáticos autónomos para vigilar y mitigar el impacto subacuático de estos factores. Así, los investigadores pueden tomar muchas medidas a la vez y desde varios sitios, lo que ayudará a combatir el cambio climático.
