Study: Urban noise does not seem as loud when we look at nature

Two MSc Eng students from Aarhus University have set out to examine the correlation between what people see and what they hear. Using VR technology, they have discovered that looking at nature seems to dampen our hearing.

Recycled plastics transformed into 3D printing material

A new research project at the Department of Engineering, Aarhus University aims to recycle plastic waste into a standardised filament product for the 3D printing industry.

"We’re proud to support this world-leading centre that can bring forward new knowledge about how we can record impulses in the ears, and how we can use this knowledge to benefit general health," says Lars Nørby Johansen, chair of the William Demant Foundation. Photo: AU Foto.

Aarhus University opens the world's first centre for ear-EEG

Researchers at the Department of Engineering are world leaders in brain measurement via a special device fitted in the ear like a hearing aid. The technology is called ear-EEG, and now the university has received a new grant to ensure further development of this Danish-designed method.

Injecting ‘solar cells’ into the body to regenerate brain cells

Associate Professor Menglin Chen has received a major grant from the Carlsberg Foundation to develop a completely new method of regenerating brain and heart cells. The method uses water-based nanofibers coated with organic photovoltaic nanomaterials to create light controlled neural stimulating scaffolds inside the body.

"We’re developing some models in the project for use as a sort of building block to make it easier for companies to get started. These models can be shared with other partners in the project," says project leader Professor Peter Gorm Larsen. Photo: Colourbox.

New platform to help SMEs get started with cyber-physical systems

Small and medium-sized enterprises need better opportunities to exploit the benefits of computer-based models for cyber-physical systems. This is the objective of a new, large-scale, pan-European development project headed by the Department of Engineering at Aarhus University.

Research to reduce the emission of greenhouse gases from livestock manure

A new research project will develop strategies to reduce methane emissions from livestock manure in the entire chain from animal excretion to end of storage.

Production has to be in a single, continuous flow in which waste stream is added at one end and, via enzymatic photobiocatalysis with the algae enzymes, is converted into fuel that comes out at the other end, explains Associate Professor Selin Kara (right). Photo: Jesper Bruun

Rare algae enzyme to convert cooking oil into ready-to-use biofuel

Researchers have found an unusual, light-dependent enzyme in microalgae. A new project at the Department of Engineering, Aarhus University, will use the enzyme in a system to produce drop-in fuels from waste oils and fats.

"This is the first time anyone has tried to find a cheaper or corresponding composite solution, but it’s not easy, because the conditions are so harsh," says Simon Heide-Jørgensen, industrial postdoc on the project. Photo: Anders Trærup.

Composite to replace cast iron in harsh maritime environments

Inside the massive engines in the world's largest ships are huge heat exchangers made of cast iron. For the first time, a new research project is looking for an inexpensive composite substitute for the classical iron components, which can cost vast sums to maintain.

The project could "be a huge achievement for the chemicals industry as a whole, as chemical synthesis today is very polluting," says Associate Professor Selin Kara. Photo: Ida Jensen, AU Foto.
