Preliminary key learnings from the CORALIS follower cases on the efficient design of industrial symbiosis at an early stage

The CORALIS follower sites represent a collaborative effort of various organizations aimed at promoting industrial symbiosis in different regions across Europe. Within the project, the three follower cases which have been chosen are Basauri in Spain, Linz in Austria and Izmit in Turkey. These sites have been selected based on their resource exchange potential, the

Chemists create carbon materials for energy storage device from brewery waste

Modern energy storage systems are an important building block for a climate-friendly future. “Modern” means not only that their performance meets the demands of a high-tech society, but also that they can be produced and recycled sustainably. In the search for new resources, scientists sometimes hit upon surprising raw materials—for example brewery waste.

Improving the durability of lithium metal batteries using carbon fiber paper as the anode

Due to the worldwide growth of electric vehicles, there has been a rise in demand for next-generation secondary batteries with higher capacity and faster charging than the lithium-ion batteries currently in use. Lithium metal batteries have been recognized as promising rechargeable batteries because a lithium metal anode exhibits a theoretical capacity 10 times higher than a commercial graphite anode. During charging-discharging processes, however, lithium dendrites grow on the anode, leading to poor battery performance and short-circuits.

EEA report: Investigating Europe′s secondary raw material markets

Secondary raw material (SRM) markets are essential for a circular economy, as they allow recyclables to be reused in the production value chain, reducing the need for primary resources.  An EEA report named, “Investigating Europe′s secondary raw material markets”, has developed an assessment framework to evaluate the functionality of existing SRM markets. Applying the framework

Colorful films could help buildings, cars keep their cool

The cold blast of an air conditioner can be a welcome relief as temperatures soar, but “A/C” units require large amounts of energy and can leak potent greenhouse gases. Today, scientists report an eco-friendly alternative—a plant-based film that gets cooler when exposed to sunlight and comes in a variety of textures and bright, iridescent colors. The material could someday keep buildings, cars and other structures cool without requiring external power.
