For safety, operational and environmental requirements railway ballast and train tracks must be largely free of vegetation and organic leftovers. In addition to this, the railway ballast should be clean from organic leftovers. The common market solution to prevent and treat vegetation on railway tracks is the use of soil herbicides and leaf herbicides. However, this solution is expensive, complicated, polluting for soil and groundwater and provide a solution only for weed control.

Human activities are the major cause of soil pollution. Industrial activities including mining, smelting and manufacturing; domestic, livestock and municipal wastes; pesticides, herbicides, fertilizers used in agriculture; petroleum-derived products that are released into or break-down in the environment. In Europe, statistics relative to soil-remediation show an enormous market need. There are an estimated 2.5 million potentially contaminated sites in the European Economic Area (EEA-39), of which 45% have been identified by 2011.

Population growth, climate change and limitations of natural resources mean that agriculture must become more productive, efficient and environmentally sound. Most of the branches of agricultural industry are aimed at the production of qualitative, safe and a wide range of products, and this is particularly relevant in livestock farming. One of the potential sources of animal infection is water, through which pathogens can be transferred to all the animals on a farm. It is therefore absolutely imperative that animals receive water of good quality.

Population growth, climate change and limitations of natural resources mean that agriculture must become more productive, efficient and environmentally sound. According to the United Nations (UN), the world population is expected to reach 9.7 billion by 2050, placing further strain on food production. Global agriculture is tasked with meeting this demand, with cereals as its cornerstone. The Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) believes food demand will require raising cereal production by 70% globally. As part of improving agricultural yields, irrigation plays a crucial role.

Background: Indicating local spots of thermal load on large-scale components is challenging, because the area of interest may not be accessible by electronic sensors or the complete coverage of the area may require an excessive number of sensors. Solution of the Swiss school of technology: The hardware of interest can be covered with a new functional coating, which will indicate the thermal history. First, a layer of TiN (titanium nitride) is applied, then an ultrathin layer of TiAlN (titanium aluminium nitride).
