Improving the efficiency of Customs inspections in the logistics supply chain

In the years ahead, Customs at Schiphol airport and the Port of Rotterdam are set to have a lot of work on their hands. In the next five years, the huge growth in e-commerce and the imminent Brexit will lead to an increase from 160 million to 500 million in the number of Customs declarations passing through these major logistics hubs of Europe. This massive increase calls for smart ways of working in order to guarantee efficient risk analysis and cut costs in processing Customs import declarations. “In light of this, digitisation and collaboration between Customs organisations and the transport supply chain will be of key importance,” says Yao-Hua Tan, Professor of Information and Communication Technology.

Marnix Wagemaker receives Vici for battery research

Dr. ir. Marnix Wagemaker will receive a Vici grant from NWO. Wagemaker is getting this grant, which amounts to 1.5 million euros, to investigate the inner workings of batteries. Among other things, the researcher aims to find out why the storage capacity achieved by the current generation of batteries is lagging behind that which should theoretically be feasible. An additional 250.000 euros of in-kind contributions will be provided by companies that are involved in the research.

Small droplets for better crystals

Sometimes it’s not just the chemical composition of a substance that matters but also the way in which the ingredients are ordered at the atomic level: the crystal structure. For example, the wrong crystal structure of one and the same material could mean the difference between an effective and a failed drug.

Programming on a silicon quantum chip

Quantum technology makes a great leap forward. While scientists can control a few qubits with great reliability, it doesn’t yet look like a real computer. Useful quantum chips require programmability: the ability to perform an arbitrary set of operations. Scientists from QuTech in Delft have now realised a programmable two-qubit quantum processor in silicon successfully implementing two quantum algorithms. They have published their work in the magazine Nature.

Expertblog: Grootste Europese conferentie over procesveiligheid naar TU Delft

Volgens veiligheidshoogleraar Genserik Renieurs gaat procesveiligheid momenteel een nieuwe fase in. Er moet meer aandacht komen voor samenwerken en clusterdenken. Daar gaat ook de 16e editie van het gerenommeerde Loss Prevention symposium over, volgend jaar aan de TU Delft. Reniers mag dan de organisatie op zich nemen. In deze blog op de website van Petrochem geeft hij alvast een voorproefje van de conferentie.
