How to make solar energy more efficient
The energy sector is one of the sectors that need to undergo both rapid and far-reaching transformation to limit the effects of climate change. What is the significance of basic research, which investigates new theories and new approaches, in driving development?
Lund researchers awarded prestigious ERC grants
Two researchers at Lund University in Sweden have been awarded almost EUR 5 million in total from the European Research Council. One of the research projects focuses on the early growth of diatoms in the ocean 250 million years ago, and the subsequent global effects of the algae growth. The other grant will go towards research on the automatic control necessary to create fossil-free cities.
Students whip up crispy crackers from waste product
The whisked liquid left over when boiling beans and chickpeas – aquafaba – can replace egg whites in providing the right consistency for mayonnaise, cakes and desserts. It has therefore become a popular alternative among vegans, but within the food industry it is rare to find aquafaba as an ingredient. Now, a group of Masters’ degree students in Food Technology at Lund University in Sweden have developed a product that potentially could be sold in supermarkets.
Promising bioplastic derived from “poo molecule”
A new, fossil-free bioplastic is emerging. According to lab experiments, it is more durable than both regular plastic and other bioplastics, and is potentially better suited for recycling.
Morning coffee and popular science lectures by the Honorary Doctors at LTH 2019
All staff and LTH friends are welcome to public lectures by the three new LTH Honorary Doctors appointed 2019: Prof José van Dijck, Prof Tord Kjellström och Dr Arne Staby. We will hear about digital platforms in Europe, the effect of climate changes upon those who work under heat stress, and the "conservative" biopharmaceutical industry.
