Danish engineers develop method to create bioplastics

Imagine a future in which plastic is sustainable, 100 per cent biodegradable, and produced without the use of chemistry. This is exactly what researchers at Aarhus University are working on right now.

Daniel Lucani Rötter was educated at the Simón Bolívar University in Venezuela and later moved to the USA, completing his PhD in Electrical Engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

New business collaboration will provide more on-site research

Aarhus University is taking part in a new nationwide project that will strengthen small and medium-sized enterprises in the wind industry.

A strong electricity grid can distribute surplus wind and solar energy by 2050. In order to succeed, the grid must be three times stronger than it is in Europe at present. This will provide an opportunity to divide approximately 40 per cent of the surplus production. The rest can be used for local heating and transport. The interaction between local utilisation and the transmission of renewable energy is one of the project’s core themes.

New project will make green energy 100 per cent affordable for the Danes

Seventeen of the largest and most significant players in the energy sector in Denmark and other parts of Europe will now join forces in a huge project aimed at converting the entire energy system so it is ready to run purely on renewable energy.

Information and Communications Technology (ICT) is one of the Bachelor of Engineering degree programmes that has experienced the largest increase.

Danish engineers in huge EU project to show the farming of the future

Farming is facing a paradigm shift in which smart IT solutions will modernise the industry and make it more efficient. The EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation is granting hundreds of millions to a large demonstration project to boost development.

New technology will monitor and limit ammonia emission from livestock production. This will solve a major environmental problem in farming. Pictured here are Anders Feilberg and Quyhn Nguyen in the laboratory. They are working on chemical methods for cleaning the air. (Photo: Lars Kruse)

New technology will reduce air pollution from farming

New sensors and technology for purifying the air will make it possible for farmers to control ammonia emission and remediate odour from livestock production.

Using time-resolved data from 28,000 Danish single-family houses, researchers can document that the current national energy requirements have a significant impact in terms of reducing heating consumption. (Photo: Colourbox)

Danes use less energy on heating

With data from 28,000 single-family houses, researchers have analysed the historical development of our actual energy consumption for heating private houses. They can thereby document a clear effect of energy-saving requirements in the current building regulations.

A group of engineering students has designed a smart lid for coffee, which stops you from burning your tongue when you drink. (Photo: Colourbox)
At left in this image is a standard lid for a to-go mug. At right is the first version of a lid with features that have been thoroughly thought out from an engineering point of view. It is designed with a starting point in fluid mechanical and thermodynamic principles with a view to improving the coffee experience for consumers. (Photo: Adam Flytkjær)

Smart lid on the way for coffee drinkers

A specially designed lid can solve the problem of burning your tongue when you drink hot coffee. A group of engineering students is behind the invention and they have just started production of the first prototype.

Aarhus University is opening its energy laboratory in Katrinebjerg on Friday 2 December. (Photo: Lars Kruse)
The laboratory can be used by researchers, students and companies. The aim is to gain experimental experience with an energy system based on full integration of sustainable energy sources such as the sun, wind and biogas. (Photo: Lars Kruse)
The RESCUE Lab is self-sufficient with energy from the sun, wind and biogas, and also has the capacity to store energy. This image is taken on the roof, which is equipped with solar cells. (Photo: Lars Kruse)

New energy laboratory opens in Aarhus

A new energy laboratory at Aarhus University will provide new knowledge about how to optimise a sustainable electricity supply in Denmark and the rest of Europe. Both researchers and students, as well as companies in Denmark and abroad will have access to the state-of-the-art technical facilities.
