Sustainable farming practices and a chemical process that turns brown coal into organic compounds are bringing over-farmed fields back to good health, boosting crop yields and locking greenhouse gases underground.
Marine microorganism data from anywhere in the world is now easier to access. The EU-funded project that made this possible also developed the research infrastructure and legal framework necessary for industry to fully tap the potential of microbial life in the oceans.
Catalysts transform carbon-derived chemicals into ingredients for products that people use every day. EU-funded researchers have identified new enzymes and processes for low-waste bio-based catalysts – supporting chemical-based industries to use resources sustainably.
