Biodrying. A novel technology to treat organic wastes

AoS. Biodrying.

Different reuse pathways for sewage sludge (SS) produced in wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) and other organic waste exist, such as its direct application as agronomic soil or with a previous composting process to enhance the agronomic qualities

Reuse of third generation industrial waste

As global consumption of finite raw materials continues to rise, so too does the amount of waste produced. In Europe for example, each citizen consumes an average of 15 tonnes of raw materials and produces on average

All that powerful materials is not forever

Proof of concept design of transient and flexible HMMs.

Transient technology is foreseeable as a key ingredient for the development of emerging devices, especially for the sake of a sustainable human society. Scientists explore materials, devices and systems that are completely dissolved or selectively disintegrated at

Second-generation composites from recycled wind turbine blades

The demand for wind and other forms of clean energy is increasing in the US and throughout the world. Wind energy is also expected to provide 14.9% of the global electricity demand by 2020. Under this scenario,

Reducing single-use plastic shopping bags

Thin-film, single-use shopping bags are ubiquitous throughout the world. Since the 1980s, consumers have been habitualized into expecting free plastic shopping bags at businesses. In the US, the estimated annual per capita consumption of single-use plastic shopping

Cigarette butts processing into cellulose pulp

Cigarette butts are composed by cellulose acetate (the filter), cellulose, remaining tobacco, ash and a myriad of toxic compounds added when producing the cigarette or formed during its burning. Because of these toxic compounds, which are persistant

Recycling polymers in the presence of carbon dioxide

Polymers are large molecules which are formed from the joining of smaller molecules (monomers) in a process called polymerisation. They are present in many of the commercial products which we use on a daily basis, from laptops
