Algae waste to become food and cosmetics in circular EU project
Each year, large amounts of macro and microalgae are produced over the world, but the waste from the production is discarded and not made use of. A new EU project coordinated by KTH aims at finding ways to create new products from the waste.
Flow research for an energy-efficient future
Shervin Bagheri is conducting research into how flowing fluids and gases interact with surfaces and materials. He now has funding from ERC Consolidator Grants 2023 to study what are known as self-lubricating surfaces. The aim is to increase energy efficiency in a range of areas.
New Horizon Europe project aims at reducing emissions from the agricultural sector
Researchers at the Department of Chemical Engineering are collaborating with other European partners to develop and implement technologies that could significantly reduce emissions of methane and nitrous oxide from the agricultural sector. The project ‛REPAIR’ has recently been approved by the European Commission under the Horizon Europe framework.
New appointments as Wallenberg Academy Fellows
It has now been confirmed that KTH researchers Sara Zahedi and Marina Petrova have been appointed as Wallenberg Academy Fellows 2019. The grants cover a period of five years and are intended to provide each researcher with support to enable them to further develop their area of research over a longer period.
New project on digital solutions for value recovery in manufacturing
A four-year research project involving KTH and partners from 9 countries kicked-off in January 2023. The project will focus on the development of an open access platform for lifecycle information management, and digital solutions for value recovery activities built on state-of-the-art technologies.
KTH-led project develops next-generation biorefineries
Researchers from KTH and Lund University will develop an integrated alcohol biorefinery for the production of industrially important chemicals (IIC) and energy carriers from Swedish biomass.
KTH builds sensor network for earthquake early-warning system
Future predictability of severe earthquakes – the goal of the KTH-led European research project ArtEmis. “By combining several measurement parameters simultaneously, we hope that research into earthquakes can take a great leap forward,” says Project Leader Ayse Ataç Nyberg, Professor of Physics at KTH.
