Grape pomace: Nature´s cheap solution to water pollution problems

Commercial activated carbons, produced from non-renewable coal, petroleum residues and from plant by-products like wood and coconut shells, are used to clean up wastewaters via the removal and recovery of chemical pollutants. The technology of adsorbing the pollutants works when the high surface area, porous and chemically active surfaces of the activated carbons come into contact with the pollutant molecules in aqueous medium. In this context, it is worth mentioning that the grape pomace generated as a waste by-product from the wineries is an interesting and inexpensive medium for the development of activated carbons. Constituting about 20% of the input[...]

Data mining as a decision support tool for funding of emerging scientific and technological research

By David F. Nettleton (Ph.D.) and Elodie Bugnicourt (Ph.D.) Identifying which topics, researchers and institutions to fund is a key issue for funding bodies. Current approaches rely on peer review, in which renown experts who are active in different discipline areas, use a predefined set of criteria to reach a consensus to evaluate presented proposals on a case by case basis. On a wider perspective, policy makers have to decide which are the research topics which should be invested in, taking into account a medium/long term future evolution, for example, through the next 5 to 10 years. This approach in[...]

Open Innovation 2.0

While the paradigm of how to innovate has drastically changed during the last decades, open innovation, referring to the use of both inflows and outflows of knowledge to improve internal innovation, is not new as it dates as far back as the 1960s. So immersed in a strange paradox between outmost confidentiality and protection around many internal developments, finding the right balance between open and close innovation has evolved as well as the tools and approach to apply this duality. Initially, open innovation used to be more for companies who wished to capture and upscale results from Universities. And Open[...]

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[...]
