Soon we can harvest metals

Scientists are developing new agricultural methods which enable metals to be extracted from plants grown in areas where traditional agricultural production is difficult. The remaining plant material can be used as biomass for renewable energy.

A new plant-based fuel can replace fossil fuels in vehicles

We are now taking a great step towards a future based on renewable energy. The research alliance BioC4 works on a project that will enable an effective production of isobutanol – a sustainable plant based fuel that can be used in existing engines for vehicles.

New project will help increase food production in the EU by 20 pct.

3.8 million hectares of soil in the EU are unsuitable for effective agricultural production due to pollution or drought. Fortunately a new research project strives to reconvert poor, dried out and polluted sites into sustainable farm land. The aim is to increase food production in the EU by up to 20 pct.

New weapon to be used as an alternative to herbicides

A new research project, funded within the frame of FACCE SURPLUS, will explore the use of thermal waste heat from the harvester to destroy weed seeds. New methods to collect the chaff or weed will also be developed, in order to decrease weed pollution and use it to produce bioenergy instead.
