Engineering researchers from Aarhus University have developed electronic support stockings and tested them on bed-ridden Covid patients at Copenhagen University Hospitals, Bispebjerg and Herlev. The experiments show that the stockings counteract a significant loss of muscle mass.
Soon, packaging for take-away foods might be completely based on local, sustainable materials instead of fossil-based products. In a new research project, a packaging solution based on upcycled grass fibres is being developed.
With a grant of DKK 10 million from the Novo Nordisk Foundation, researchers from Aarhus University are aiming to find out how best to use naturally occurring compounds to preserve food.
The ReMeSh research project will increase our understanding of microorganisms' ability to convert CO2 into methane and it will form the basis for development of a new technology for efficient production of sustainable fuel.
A new innovative project aims to redraw the boundaries for fashion design, recycling technologies and consumer behaviour. Worn, damaged or new clothes that are discarded will be broken down into new raw materials and included in a circular economy.
