Personalised care for risky hearts
Coronary heart disease (CHD) and stroke – the top two leading causes of death and disability in Europe – amount to over EUR 170 billion in healthcare costs. However, tens of thousands of these deaths from cardiovascular disease (CVD) could be prevented.
Reduced salt in dried meat
European meat consumers may benefit from healthier, high-quality dried meat products with reduced salt content through an innovative salting process.
Improved thermal barrier coatings
Gas turbines operate with very high temperatures, and thermal barrier coatings (TBCs) are a requirement to prevent degradation of components and increase efficiency. Novel coating formulations promise to significantly enhance their performance.
Cast aluminium degassed without gas
Current methods to remove hydrogen gas (H2) bubbles from aluminium moulds are expensive, inefficient and hazardous. Now, a newly developed ultrasonic technology promises to reduce porosity and improve mechanical properties of moulded parts at lower cost.
