Computer models show clear advantages in new types of wind turbines

Researchers have modelled the fluid dynamics of multi-rotor wind turbines, and how they interact in wind farms. The research demonstrates a clear advantage for a turbine model with four rotors.

"If we want a truly sustainable built environment, we need to look at the bigger picture. We cannot focus on energy renovation alone," says Aliakbar Kamari, who is researching in tectonic building design at the Department of Engineering, Aarhus University. Photo: Aliakbar Kamari.

New knowledge about old plastics

There is a huge number of different plastic types. This means it is no easy matter to get the rate of plastics recycling to rise. At the Department of Engineering, daily tests on plastics will make it easier for industry to identify the specific type of plastic and produce recycled plastic products in the right quality.

"One of the more interesting things I'm working on is bioelectronic devices, a field where electronics and biology come together. Here we try to encapsulate biocompatible 3D printed electronic in human cells," says Shweta Agarwala, a new assistant professor at Aarhus University. Photo: Lars Kruse / AU Foto.

World of opportunities with Printed Electronics in Denmark

Shweta Agarwala, MSc in engineering from Nanyang Technological University in Singapore and PhD in electronics engineering from the National University of Singapore, is a new assistant professor at the Department of Engineering, Aarhus University. Her research focus is printed electronics catered towards finding novel healthcare solutions.

Ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) is a super-plastic material commercially known as Dyneema or Spectra, which is already taking over from Kevlar in e.g. bullet-proof jackets, which PhD Simon Skovsgård is wearing here.

New research identifies the strengths and weaknesses of super material

Scientists from Aarhus University and the University of Cambridge are the first to measure and set guidelines for bolted joints using the up-coming replacement for Kevlar: the ultra-strong material with the catchy name ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene

"The objective is for the technology to be cost-effective at a scale suited to a large biogas plant. The ultimate goal is a society where nothing goes to waste. Where no fossil fuels are dug out of the ground, and we have an alternative for everything we dig up today. The circular bioeconomy at its best," says Lars Ottosen. Photo: AU Foto.

Danish research to make black-as-coal methanol production 100% green

Every year, more than 70 million tonnes of methanol are produced in a process based almost exclusively on fossil fuels. A new project with Haldor Topsøe, Aarhus University and others is aiming at making production entirely green and based on biogas.

Danish-led research project couples academia with industry to pave the way for sustainable production of chemicals

The Department of Engineering at Aarhus University is heading a new international and intersectoral project, which will create 100 per cent pure, natural and sustainable chemical products by mimicking the metabolism of living organisms. The project is potentially ground-breaking for one of the world's most polluting industries.

The project, which is called REBOOT, is headed by Assistant Professor Patrick Biller from the Department of Engineering, Aarhus University. The project officially starts on 1 January 2020, and will be run at pilot scale at the department's Centre for Biorefining Technologies at Foulum, which is already home to one of the world's largest HTL reactors.
