Scientists are recruiting bacteria to spot pollutants spilling into our rivers and lakes.
A new European research project seeks grass crops that could be grown and harvested on marginal lands, away from areas suitable for food crops
Improved safety management and further collaboration between experts is required to minimise the risk of flooding at coastal nuclear plants in Europe.
It may be easier to show concern about cuddly animals like bees than about some of the millions of indigenous insect and microorganisms found in the European biodiversity.
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.
Sophisticated computer algorithms mimicking the law of physics are used to forecast global air pollution levels
Air quality is not a local problem. Like clouds moving through the sky, pollution is transported from one location to another by wind patterns in the atmosphere. With each breath we inhale vital oxygen, but also small amounts ...
Historical buildings and town quarters are an integral part of the European cultural heritage. However, such buildings are often not very energy efficient and thus contribute substantially to the emission of greenhouse gases. ...
(Phys.org) —Mass DNA sequencing has led to a better knowledge of marine micro-organisms in their environment and helps to discover new genes of interests. However, it is only part of the answer for biotech applications.
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 ...
Tiny particles impact our air quality and cause health problems, but European researchers have been discovering how these particles can also influence climate change.
