Chalmers University researchers create wood-based ink for 3D printing that mimics nature

Chalmers University researchers create wood-based ink for 3D printing that mimics nature

July 1, 2019 |

In Sweden, researchers at Chalmers University of Technology have succeeded in 3D printing with a wood-based ink in a way that mimics the unique ‘ultrastructure’ of wood. Their research could revolutionize the manufacturing of green products. Through emulating the natural cellular architecture of wood, they now present the ability to create green products derived from […]

Sweden needs to more than double biofuel consumption to achieve transportation goals

Sweden needs to more than double biofuel consumption to achieve transportation goals

June 17, 2019 |

In Sweden, a report by the Royal Swedish Academy of Engineering Sciences says the country must more than double its use of biofuels by 2045 if it’s going to meet its goal of using 40TWh of biofuels for transport, compared to 17TWh used currently. Yet even so, the researcher leading the study told The Local […]

Swedavia’s airports to refuel with aviation biofuel for the next few days

Swedavia’s airports to refuel with aviation biofuel for the next few days

June 5, 2019 |

In Sweden, beginning June 5 and for the next few days, bio jet fuel will be used to refuel aircraft at several of Swedavia’s airports, including Stockholm Arlanda Airport. These airports are some of the only ones in the world to use this fuel, which sharply reduces emissions of fossil carbon dioxide. This venture is […]

Swedish researcher finds potential for Nordic microalgae to produce biomass and treat sewage

Swedish researcher finds potential for Nordic microalgae to produce biomass and treat sewage

June 4, 2019 |

In Sweden, a PhD candidate demonstrated the potential of Nordic microalgae for simultaneous production of biomass and municipal sewage treatment in the Nordic climate. She has also studied how microalgae and bacteria work together and how this impacts the composition of microbial communities in open algae cultures. Several Swedish microalgae strains that were able to […]

Swedish researcher transfer electrical current between bacteria and electrode

Swedish researcher transfer electrical current between bacteria and electrode

March 28, 2019 |

In Sweden, in recent years, researchers have tried to capture the electrical current that bacteria generate through metabolism. So far, however, the transfer of current from the bacteria to a receiving electrode has been highly inefficient. Now, researchers from institutions including Lund University have achieved a slightly more efficient transfer of electrical current. The results […]
