The "just in time" principle applied to temperature control promises gains in energy efficiency and product quality.
The energy landscape in Europe is changing rapidly and the percentage of renewables is steadily increasing. For example, in Germany, solar and wind power provided an average of 33% of the total electricity production in 2015. ...
Tiny particles impact our air quality and cause health problems, but European researchers have been discovering how these particles can also influence climate change.
Biogas-based energy could solve both the environmental concern of agricultural waste and reduce dependency of fossil fuels, particularly in Eastern Europe, albeit at a steep production cost.
In Munich, a newly erected office building, called the NuOffice, has been awarded an internationally recognised green design certification in platinum, called the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certificate.

The precision agriculture sector is expected to grow at a high rate over the coming years. This new way of farming is already a reality in northwest Italy, where technologies are being used to keep plants in a good state ...
Transit exhibitions and artwork loaning may lead to mistreatments or damages of art pieces, exposure to sudden environmental changes and to the risk of fraud.
Food's microstructure can explain many of its characteristics—be it cake's sponginess, bread's crispness, cracker's crunchiness or fruits' inner gas and water transport system and even colour. Understanding such microstructure ...
Understanding which extreme weather events may have caused problems in the past leads to assess the potential impact of future such events on infrastructures.
