  • Sustainable Biorefineries: An Important Research Topic

    In recent years, substantial steps into the transition towards a biobased economy have been taken in order to reduce the reliance on imported oil and the emission of greenhouse gases.  As far as Europe is concerned, Sweden, home to theEUBCE 2017 in Stockholm, has been very successful in decoupling GHG emissions from economic growth: from 2000 to 2012, ...

  • Life Among The Heavy Metals

    Authors in scientific and applied works interpret the meaning of the concept "heavy metals" in different ways. Today, they include more than 40 chemical elements with an atomic mass of more than 50 atomic units. An important role in the determination of heavy metals is played by the following conditions: their high toxicity in relatively low concentrations, and the ability to bioaccumulation. ...
