Virtual tour of the catalysis labThe new industrial catalysis lab is still under construction, but a few colleagues were already able to go for a walk inside the building last Monday. In 3D virtual reality, that is. A nice and very useful experience, as it turned out!
TU Delft researcher makes alcohol out of thin airIt may sound too good to be true, but TU Delft PhD-student Ming Ma (Delft University of Technology, The Netherlands) has found a way to produce alcohol out of thin air. Or, to be more precise, he has found out how to effectively and precisely control the process of electroreduction of CO2 to produce a wide range of useful products, including alcohol. Being able to use CO2 as a resource this way may just be pivotal in tackling climate change. His PhD defence will take place on September 14th.
One million euros for early recognition of aneurysmsAt present, an existence of a pathological enlargement of the largest blood vessel (aorta), so-called aneurysm, is usually discovered when is already too late for the patients. In a majority of cases, the aneurysm is detected only after rupturing, with disastrous consequences. Due to very intensive internal bleeding, mortality rates are very high. Even for patients reaching a hospital, the chance of survival is just around 60%. It is estimated that more than 300 000 persons in the Netherlands are at risk of developing an aneurysm.
