Energy system models suggest hydrogen and fuel cells (FCs) will play an important role in climate change mitigation. However, one of the major historical and current challenges of commercialising fuel cell technology has been cost. Nonetheless the market is growing exponentially despite the cost/kilowatt (kw) at over 1,000 EUR highlights consumers’ willingness to pay in the face of increasingly stringent environmental regulations. In the face of fast-approaching decarbonisation targets, in many cases (such as heavy vehicles) there is no practical alternative technological solution.

Sewage is treated in wastewater treatment plants to recover usable water streams. The semisolid or solid by-product formed during the processing of sewage is known as sludge. Treatment of sludge is chiefly designed for reducing the sludge volume and converting the organic materials in the sludge into stable substances, to enable effective disposal, recover a usable product, or generate biogas.

New in-situ process for non-glyphosate vegetation control and decontamination of railway ballast, soil and groundwater from pollutants and glyphosate leftovers

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, complicate, polluting for soil and groundwater and provides a solution only for weed control.

During service, food has to be kept warm on various appliances, necessarily connected to the mains. This limits the service in central buffets and self-services and makes it necessary to cover the food, especially if the buffets are far from the kitchen. This is expensive in terms of operating costs and logistics. The Swiss start-up developed an "all in one" catering equipment for processing and distributing collective hot meals based on a different thermodynamic principle than cooking or reheating food.

The products of the Swiss, family-owned company optimize and activate existing resources to ensure that the problem is tackled at its root, rather than just solving an individual symptom. The products work in conjunction with nature and improve the quality and yield of the harvest cost-efficiently and in an environmentally friendly manner. The company has developed a technology that makes it possible to transfer selected active frequencies and properties to other carrier materials.

Colorectal cancer (CRC) is the third most prevalent cancer worldwide (10.2% of all cancer cases) and the second leading cause of cancer mortality. Several risk factors may increase the chance of developing CRC, such as age, familial CRC, lifestyle factors, colorectal polyps and inflammatory bowel diseases. It has been shown that CRC develops from adenomatous polyps that grow slowly before becoming malignant. By early detection and early removal of polyps and cancerous tissue, colorectal cancer is curable in most cases.

Simplified introduction of the pentafluorosulfanyl (SF5) group in drugs to improve performance

BACKGROUND Many drugs contain fluorinated functional groups in order to add advantageous properties. Fluorinated functional groups are more likely to withstand metabolic oxidation and, thus, are less prone to rapid degradation. The fluorination also increases the lipophilicity, which is one of the tuning factors for the bioavailability of the drug. A common approach is the fluorination of the methyl group (CH3) to trifluoromethyl (CF3). Related groups like the pentafluorosulfanyl (SF5) group have additional benefits because of their size and hydrolytic stability.

A Swiss spin-off from a University of Applied Sciences has developed an electric vehicle specifically designed for urban, short distance mobility. The vehicle helps to reduce the inner-city CO2-emissions caused by traffic. It is extremely easy and fun, as well as safe to drive in all weather conditions and also on slippery floors. The vehicle has a maximum speed of 45 km/h. It has the smallest footprint (1.2m2) and is the lightest (80 kg) three-wheel vehicle on the market.
