New technology to prevent nitrate run-off from agriculture

Researchers are to make 3D maps of the subsoil below agricultural areas to obtain detailed knowledge about the nitrogen need for the individual field.

In a new project, researchers aim at improving the current methods to biologically remediate oil-contaminated soil. (Photo: Colourbox)
Researchers will measure the voltage differences in the soil with specially developed electrode tubes to demonstrate the flow of the remediation agents in a 3D model.

Signal processing to improve remediation of oil-contaminated soil

By measuring the electrical conductivity of the soil, researchers from Aarhus University, in collaboration with Ejlskov A/S, are developing an inexpensive and accurate method of tackling oil pollution. The project is being supported with DKK 17 million from Innovation Fund Denmark's Grand Solutions.

Sustainability on the curriculum for 370 pupils

Perhaps the Danish high-school students who know most about sustainability. At all events, 370 students from Aarhus Tech now know a little more after hearing about the latest knowledge and technology last Friday at a theme day at Aarhus University.

Research project identifies huge productivity potential in construction

A major new study from the Department of Engineering at Aarhus University shows that only one-third of the working hours in construction are spent on value-adding work. This means that there are many opportunities for optimisation in most builders’ working day. However, it's not that builders aren’t working hard, say the researchers.

Engineering student develops bioreactor to grow heart valves from human cells

This could be the end artificial heart valves. That’s the goal of Aarhus University, and in a Master’s thesis project, Buster Skyum, an MSc in Engineering student from Department of Engineering, has helped the university take its first step towards growing biologically active heart valves made of human cells. Such valves will never need to be…
