New magazine from AU Engineering: Together, we create the future

The green transition, sustainable technologies and interdisciplinary solutions to society's greatest challenges are the focal points of AU Engineering's new engineering profile magazine.

Det er meget dyrt at udvikle nye klimateknologier, og selv om teknologien virker i laboratoriet, så kan det kræve en stor indsats at få det tilpasset praktisk landbrug. Udviklingsomkostningerne må i stort omfang betales af de landmænd, som skal implementere teknologierne. Der er i derfor et stort behov for at billiggøre indsatsen. Foto: Colourbox.

Collaboration on the development of Danish climate technologies

Denmark is a leading nation of knowledge when it comes to reducing greenhouse gas emissions from agriculture. A workshop followed by an international conference will highlight the Danish competencies and create new opportunities for companies to develop climate technologies for agriculture (in Danish only).

"People mean everything to a university, and my ambition is to promote strong academic and social ties between teaching staff, researchers, students and administrative staff," says Professor Lars DM Ottosen, new head of the Department of Biological and Chemical Engineering, Aarhus University.

New heads of department at AU Engineering

Aarhus University now has its new management for the engineering area in place, and on 1 March 2021, four heads of department will take up their positions.

How intelligent camera technology can improve waste separation

It is important to have detailed information on waste streams from households and industry if the green transition is to succeed. Recycling plastics and metal depends entirely on meticulous separation, and artificial intelligence and new camera technology can help.

In a new project, researchers want to investigate the chemicals in our indoor climate. They are starting by looking at the air in daycare centres and schools (Photo: Colourbox).

Researchers to investigate chemicals in indoor air

By far the majority of the air we breathe in Denmark is indoor air. Yet we know very little about the cocktail of chemicals entering our bodies in this way. Researchers now want to monitor these emissions and map out the scope of harmful substances.

The road to future zero emissions demands a new form of ammonia production

A new global collaboration to examine new ways of producing green ammonia is to receive DKK 21 million from the EU framework programme for research and innovation, Horizon 2020. The project is being headed by engineering researchers from Aarhus University

"PFAS are some of the worst environmental pollutants, and unfortunately we don’t yet have green methods that can completely break the very strong carbon-fluorine bonds that make the substances extremely resistant to natural decay," says Assistant Professor Zongsu Wei. Photo: Zongsu Wei.

Research project to eliminate ‘forever chemicals’

The Novo Nordisk Foundation has granted funding to a project to develop a multi-step system to treat water for per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances. The method is based on nature's own enzymes and a completely new nanomaterial being developed by researchers at Aarhus University.

Four new engineering departments for Denmark

At the turn of the year, Aarhus University has implemented an organisational change to open four new departments. This is part of work to enhance research and educational activities within engineering science.
