In recent years, bioprinting has gained popularity as a research technique in various fields. To investigate the use of fuzzy systems as soft computing methods for achieving high precision bioprinting, a team has presented research in Bioprinting.
While there is much disagreement on the most appropriate methods and pathways to use, the bioeconomy could represent a vital tool in the urgent need to reduce reliance on fossil fuels.
A novel finding using cold plasma for agricultural production was considered in the journal Sustainability. A huge impact can be made by using this new innovation.
According to a recent paper published in the journal Sustainability, converting remaining algal biomass to value-added products is critical for improving the economics of algae farming.
Empa and Lidl Switzerland have jointly developed a cellulose protective coating for fruit and vegetables. The novel coating is made from so-called pomace - squeezed fruit and vegetable peels. The innovative project can reduce packaging and prevent food waste.
A biodegradable and sustainable “smart” food packaging material has been developed through university collaborations.
Up to 90% of patients who undergo open abdominal or pelvic surgery develop postoperative adhesions, or scar tissue. Minimally invasive laparoscopic surgical approaches can reduce the severity of the adhesions, but the scar tissue still forms. The cellular response to injury -; even intentional injury, such as surgery to repair a problem -; results in a cascade of molecules pouring to the site to heal the tissue.
Ph.D. student Imran Deen and Professor Federico Rosei of the Institut national de la recherche scientifique (INRS) have been developing a bioactive coating that simulates bone tissue.
The working system of the human brain is way different from a computer as the brain works with biological cells and electrical impulses whereas a computer uses silicon-based transistors.
Polymer biocomposites are gaining research focus as sustainable, biodegradable alternatives to traditional plastic packaging.
