New treatment seeks to reduce wastewater from petrochemical industry

The petrochemical industry consumes a great deal of water and it generates an estimated volume of 1,750 million m3 of wastewater a year only in Europe. Now a new and ambitious project, LIFE-REWATCH, is seeking to validate an innovative reclamation system for wastewater from the petrochemical industry to obtain high-quality water for reuse in the same industry.

A whitepaper on Solar-Driven Chemistry for a sustainable future

Driving chemical reactions using solar energy is not just possible, but also necessary for a sustainable future. That is the main conclusion of a recently published whitepaper on Solar-Driven Chemistry published by the European Association of Chemical and Molecular Sciences (EuCheMS) after a series of presentations and brainstorming workshops held in Berlin in October 2015 with participant experts from all over Europe.

‘Cleverscope': a plastic adapter and a smartphone get a low-cost video-laryngoscope

Direct laryngoscopy allows seeing the local cords and leading the tube to the right place, but its margin of error, depending on the patients physical characteristics, might get over 20% and develop complications. The event is unforeseen and only shows at the moment of the intubation. Video-laryngoscopes are the most effective solution in these cases, but its high cost limits their use and they are not present in all operation rooms.

Molecules made machines: chemistry taken to a new dimension

It might still seem sci-fi for most, but molecular machines are already a reality. And the Nobel Prize in Chemistry 2016 has been awarded to Jean-Pierre Sauvage (University of Strasbourg, France), Sir J. Fraser Stoddart (Northwestern University, US) and Bernard L. Feringa (University of Groninger, the Netherlands) for its design and production.
