Optimized microfilms with antimicrobial properties for secure long-term data storage #
The Fraunhofer IMWS and FilmoTec GmbH Bitterfeld-Wolfen have developed a new technology that improves the resistance of microfilms to mechanical and biochemical environmental influences and thus increases their long-term stability.
TotalEnergies, Sunfire and Fraunhofer give the go-ahead for green methanol in Leuna#
TotalEnergies announced the launch of the e-CO2Met project at the Hydrogen Lab Leuna together with the electrolyser manufacturer Sunfire, the Fraunhofer Center for Chemical-Biotechnological Processes CBP and the Fraunhofer Institute IMWS. Methanol can be produced from low-carbon hydrogen and captured carbon dioxide, which is an important approach to reducing climate-damaging greenhouse gas emissions.
In order to use electronics safely and reliably, it must be possible to trace where they come from, whether they function properly and that no backdoors for so-called hardware Trojans are built in. The platform project "Velektronik", in which the Fraunhofer Institute for Microstructure of Materials and Systems IMWS in Halle (Saale) is involved, aims to develop new solution concepts for all areas of electronics development and manufacturing.
"Waste4Future" paves new ways for plastics recycling#
Under the leadership of the Fraunhofer IMWS, seven institutions of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft are pooling their competencies in the lead project "Waste4Future" to develop new solutions for the recycling of carbon-containing waste.
We open up new potential for the use of polymers - for example, as lightweight construction materials for the automotive and aviation industry, in efficient tyres or as plastics made of renewable raw materials.
