A biodegradable food packaging solution that also promises to increase food shelf life

Whilst developing biodegradable food packaging from upcycled cheese whey and almond shells, the EU-funded project YPACK has discovered that integrating zinc oxide and oregano essential oil helps biopapers protect against bacterial contamination in food packaging. This promises to increase the shelf life of fresh products such as meat, fruit, vegetables and fresh pasta.

Novel fuel cell technology eases industry transition towards hydrogen-powered fleets

The CH2P project brings about a new technology for hydrogen refuelling stations, capable of cogenerating hydrogen, heat and electricity from natural gas and biomethane. The device combines high efficiencies with low environmental impact and high hydrogen purity.

Chemical biology: A chemical toolbox as a response to biological questions

In medieval times, alchemy was the forerunner of chemistry, and was known as the ‘handmaid of medicine’. Ironically, now that the boundaries between scientific disciplines are becoming less distinct, this relationship is stronger. This CORDIS Results Pack illustrates how chemical biology provides tools to understand the epidemiology of a variety of diseases, and to design more efficacious drugs.

A quantum leap forward for European fundamental research

Up until a few years ago, quantum technologies were the reserve of science-fiction and the excitable minds of physicists who were determined to bring them from the realm of theory to the realm of reality. Now, there are very high hopes that the first quantum supercomputers will appear within the next few years, potentially before even the end of the current decade.
