New research paves the way for green LEGO® bricks

A research project at Aarhus University has mapped the degradation mechanism for what may become the plastic materials of the future. This will make it easier to introduce sustainable plastic materials, for example for LEGO® bricks, according to the researcher behind the project.

Drug recycling and 'banapples': Engineering innovation captures Skejby

AU Engineering's new research facility, the Deep Tech Experimental Hub in Skejby, was crammed with engineering students when this year's "invention pitch" kicked off.

On May 3, the Department of Engineering opened the 2,100 sqm. research facility Deep Tech Experimental Hub. The hub is a critical element in the build-up of the research-based, engineering programs, which is a strategic focus for Aarhus University. Photo: Jens Thaysen.

Prestigious funding for new engineering projects

On Thursday, four researchers from the Department of Engineering at Aarhus University received grants from the Independent Research Fund Denmark. In total, Science and Technology has received a total of DKK 133.4 mill. (EUR 17.7 mill.), divided between 39 projects.

"Engineering is about translating deep theoretical knowledge into solutions to real issues, and I see this solution-oriented approach again and again from our students," says Thomas Toftegaard, head of department. One of the university's engineering students is Soffi Ester Olesen (in the photo), and she also uses her education to make a difference. On her second semester, she has helped develop a greenhouse gas membrane. Photo: Lars Kruse.

Engineering students to present 54 ideas for a better world

As many as 250 engineering students from different study programmes at Aarhus University have spent a semester inventing patentable ideas for technological solutions to three of the UN Sustainable Development Goals. The inventions will be presented at a major event on 14 May.

In simple terms, the project uses surplus energy to pump water from a reservoir into a giant membrane buried under massive amounts of soil. For example, a mound like this. A 330 x 330 metre membrane will be raised up to a height of 14 metres when the balloon is filled up, and this will be able to store 230 MWh of green power. Photo: Lars Kruse/AU Foto.

Membrane project to store green energy in soil mounds

Not only batteries can store wind energy. Two master of science in engineering students from Aarhus University are working on a project that, using a huge balloon, and tonnes of ordinary soil and water, will make a giant battery for renewable energy.
