  • Immobilised Biocatalysts for Bioremediation of Groundwater and Wastewater

    The European project MINOTAURUS explored innovative bio-processes to eliminate emerging and classic organic pollutants. These bio-processes are all based on the concept of immobilization of biocatalysts (microorganisms and enzymes) and encompass bioaugmentation, enzyme technology, rhizoremediation with halophytes, and a bioelectrochemical ...

  • Towards Automated Flight-Maneuver-Specific Fatigue Analysis

    Structural health monitoring of aircraft is a necessary topic especially with aging fleets. In general, it means tracking the structural integrity and keeping the risk of missing the detection of hazardous cracks low. Traditionally the fatigue analyses from the collected data have been carried out in a flight-by-flight basis. However, simultaneous ...
