For many years, carbon dioxide has been released into the atmosphere as pollution. But we might have to change the way we think about this greenhouse gas and see it instead as a valuable resource in our energy production. The reason for this is that researchers can transform the greenhouse gas into clean and sustainable methane gas that can subsequently be stored and distributed through our existing natural gas grid.

Researchers from the Department of Engineering at Aarhus University are behind the world’s most comprehensive pilot tests of high-temperature electrolysis, and the technology seems promising. In just a few years, it will be possible to roll out the technology throughout Denmark. It will cover one-tenth of our total energy need, while considerably reducing emissions of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.

Researchers from Department of Engineering transform carbon dioxide into green super gas

The primary ingredients are water, power from wind turbines and a large amount of carbon dioxide that would otherwise have to be released straight into the atmosphere. The result is an artificially produced version of natural gas with a huge green potential.

Promising admission of new engineering students

The steady growth in the number of applicants for the engineering degree programmes at Aarhus University continues.

Engineering students count parasitic mites in an instant

Parasitic mites are one of the main reasons why the death rate for honey bees in Denmark is increasing. Now, two engineering students have developed a system that makes it possible to map the extent of the problem, and at the same time reduce pesticide consumption.

Can you measure quality of view?

Two engineering students from Department of Engineering have written a Master's thesis, which may influence the construction of student accommodation in the future. In collaboration with researchers, they have developed and tested a formula that makes it possible to calculate the quality of the view from small student flats.

Built on instability

Instability is a common feature in nature. But mankind is not yet really started to reap the benefits of nature's elastic and structural instabilities, that has spawned from eons of evolution.

Danish researchers invent anti-cancer molecule as a Lego kit

A new, smart molecule enables researchers to build exactly the antibody that works best for a given type of cancer. The researchers have high expectation for the molecule in future cancer treatment, as it also activates the body's own immune system against malignant cancer cells.

Researchers fracture heart valves with small high-pressure balloons in the laboratory. The aim is to calculate the exact minimum pressure for a defective heart valve to fracture  without damaging the surrounding tissue.

Danish researchers behind new treatment for heart-valve patients

Now patients can have their worn-out artificial heart valve replaced without major surgery. Together with physicians at Aarhus University Hospital, engineers from Aarhus University have developed and characterised a gentle method to fracture old implants and make room for new ones.

Much can be learned from the ancient Japanese art form origami, when it comes to designing modern metamaterials. (Photo: Lars Kruse, AU)

Centuries-old art form generates completely new materials

Origami. For many people, the word means not much more than skilfully folding paper to resemble swans, frogs or other animals. But origami is much more. There are examples of origami throughout the modern world, but it's likely that you won't notice all the things that are in fact inspired by this 17th century Japanese art form.
