Anaerobic Digestion in Agrofood Industrial wastes: Dual Role in Biofuel generation and wastewater treatment

Agrofood industrial effluents are major contributors to the worldwide industrial water pollution. Effluents from the agro-food industries are high in organic complexity and load. The environmental regulatory authorities have put strict criteria regarding the discharge of high volume and high organic load agrofood industrial effluents to the water bodies. Thereby there has been increased momentum in the use of appropriate and comprehensive treatment technologies. Anaerobic digestion (AD) is an attractive environmentally friendly biotechnological option for agrofood wastewater treatment. This is a single technology in which dual objectives of energy recovery and pollution control can be achieved. The potential of this[...]

Here come the Dragons! …and this is not a Game of Thrones.

After reading ‘Building Dragons’ by Daniel Newman (with Olivier Blanchard), I am fascinated with Dragons (and that’s coming from someone who has never seen an episode of Game of Thrones :-) ). The dragons I am referring to are an emerging breed of established or mature companies that ‘continue to leverage their original start-up mentality to systematically innovate their way to profitability’. Unlike Unicorns- elite technology start-ups that are ‘valued at’ $1 billion or more-, Dragons are companies that have already proven their profitability in the market and are attaining new heights of success thanks to ‘purposeful reinvention, scalable market[...]

Tiny but full of promises (last episode): the prospects of nanotechnology in automotive

While nanocars (single-molecule vehicle of hundreds atoms that incorporates a chassis, axles and freely rotating fullurene wheels and can be propelled across a gold surface by an electric current or heat) were invented in 2005 by Rice University, nano-enhanced cars are already among us! The current automotive industry's driving factors are to decrease vehicles fuel consumption and environmental impact while improving passengers’ safety and comfort. After focusing on solar energy and packaging, let’s see now how nanotechnology can help us having better cars! The prospects are both in bulk (nanocomposites) and in surface (application of nano-structured coatings or nanolayers). Although[...]
