Fewer pesticides for more plant protection - this is the goal of a German-Brazilian team researching antimicrobial peptides to protect citrus fruits from bacterial "cancer infestation".

Das „Respiration Activity Monitoring System“ (RAMOS) dient der Untersuchung des Wachstums von anaeroben Bakterien.
05.06.2020

A new research project aims to examine bacteria that have so far been biotechnologically largely unnoted for their suitability for the bioindustry.

25.05.2020

Coffee grounds are more than just waste - they are a valuable resource that can be processed into new bio-based composites. A suitable method was developed as part of the idea competition project BioKaVe.



16.04.2020

Feeding the growing world population is one of the greatest tasks of our time. To meet this challenge, the crop yields of wheat must be increased and the most suitable varieties for changing environmental conditions must be found. This is the goal of the BRIWECS project.

30.12.2019

Partners from research and industry are working together to develop a warning system to prepare European fisheries and aquaculture for the consequences of climate change. It is intended to identify changes in endangered species at an early stage.

Using the bioenergy sector as an example, Jena researchers are investigating the extent to which the transition process towards a bioeconomy is affecting the existing global social inequalities.

In diesem Bioreaktor wird die Umsetzung von Abfallplastik zu Wertstoffen erprobt.
14.10.2019

Simply recycling plastic? European researchers believe they can do better. By breaking it down and making its building blocks exploitable for bacteria to create valuable resources, a research consortium plans to upcycle plastics. 

Xenoglue - Superkleber nach Muschelart
30.08.2019

Scientists in Berlin have developed an adhesive protein inspired from mussels and are able to produce the substance from reprogrammed microbes. The adhesive can be used as superglue to treat wounds and bone fractures.

Hanover researchers and their partners hope to develop peanuts with reduced allergenic potential in order to reduce the risk of an immune reaction. 

So sieht die textile 3D-Bioanode aus dem Projekt TexKoMBZ aus.
01.07.2019

A fuel cell with a textile anode could make various sewage treatment plants almost energy neutral and also make other biotechnological processes more economical.

15.05.2019

A German-Brazilian research association has succeeded in producing fertilizers and biopolymers from residual materials from sugar cane processing.

03.05.2019

A research consortium has successfully developed enzymes that allow better dyeing of synthetic fibers and prevent pilling during washing.

Platte aus jutefaserbasiertem Verbundwerkstoff
25.04.2019

Jute bags are a common sight. However, the plant's fibers are also suitable for composite materials, as researchers in the Jute Bio-Comp project are demonstrating.
