Closing the mineral cycle in dairy farmingClosing the mineral cycle in dairy farming08-09-202108-10-2021Lely Sphere allows dairy farmers to limit the emissions of ammonia from their barns significantly, use the captured ammonia as fertiliser, and divide the animal manure into two mineral streams, giving the farmer the ability to optimise fertilisation for crops and soils by using the value of emissions.Clemens DuijnisveldLelyLIFE CMCD ProjectAgri-Foodstuffs, Agriculture, Forestry & FisheriesThe PRj Volume 10Read Full Text Download (PDF)
Coniferous forests in the Mediterranean: an ecosystem of vital importance, threatened by forest management deficitConiferous forests in the Mediterranean: an ecosystem of vital importance, threatened by forest management deficit06-09-202104-10-2021Forests constitute a fundamental piece of the territorial landscape. They supply raw materials, protect settlements, infrastructures, regulate the hydrological cycle and purification of water. In the context of the climate crisis, the role that forests play is in mitigating climate change, being the main terrestrial carbon sink of the Land Use Sector, Changes in Land Use and Forestry (LULUCF).Miguel Chamón FernándezGeneral Directorate of Natural Environment of Murcia RegionLIFE FOREST CO2 ProjectClimate & EnvironmentThe PRj Volume 10Read Full Text Download (PDF)

But how to use their potential?06-09-202104-10-2021Quantum computing is becoming a reality, but automated methods and software tools for this technology are just beginning. DA QC project aims to develop automatic and efficient methods, e.g. for simulation, compilation, or verification of quantum circuits and will exploit design automation expertise proven powerful for conventional circuits and systems hardly utilised in quantum computing.Robert WilleTechnical University MunichDA QC ProjectComputingThe PRj Volume 10Read Full Text Download (PDF)
Using plasmons to harness infrared solar lightUsing plasmons to harness infrared solar light06-09-202104-10-2021Increasing pressure to reduce global warming and deliver sustainable energy production requires innovative solutions. For instance in conventional solar cells the Infrared (IR) solar light is typically wasted, yet it has potential for photocurrent delivery. Employing low-cost and scalable methods the PLASMIONICO project is delivering some promising results.Luis A.

Merging advanced sensing techniques and simulation tools for future structural health monitoring technologiesMerging advanced sensing techniques and simulation tools for future structural health monitoring technologies06-09-202104-10-2021Smart and autonomous mechanical structures that can perform online control of their health are critical in the future needs of energy transport to achieve greater reliability and performance of the employed structures (aircrafts, wind turbines, bridges etc.). By optimising maintenance and the capability to operate in degraded mode, this development in technology will be able to anticipate actions during service before downtime or failure occurs.Ludovic ChamoinUniversité Paris-SaclayDREAM-ON ProjectClimate & Environment, EnergyThe PRj Volume 10Read Full Text Download (PDF)
Carbon smart forestry under climate changeCarbon smart forestry under climate change03-09-202104-10-2021Forest ecosystems are important components of the global carbon cycle.

How does the viability of bone-restricted osteocytes regulate bone atrophy?How does the viability of bone-restricted osteocytes regulate bone atrophy?03-09-202104-10-2021Although the skeleton appears stiff and solid, it is, in fact, a dynamic and sensitive network, demanding a fine balance between the bone-resorbing osteoclasts and the bone-forming osteoblasts. Disruption of this homeostasis frequently leads to exaggerated bone degradation by osteoclasts, manifesting in pathological bone loss.

From advanced aircraft design to drug deliveryFrom advanced aircraft design to drug delivery03-09-202104-10-2021The sonic boom of aircraft has been known since the early days of supersonic aviation. It both fascinates and frightens mankind, even today. Put simply, a flying object that moves faster than the air in front of it can be pushed away causes a very strong and fast compression of the air.Nikolaus (Prof. Dr.-Ing.)A.

Spectrally resolved outgoing longwave radiation and its applications for the study of climateSpectrally resolved outgoing longwave radiation and its applications for the study of climate03-09-202104-10-2021Earth’s climate is determined by the flow of energy coming in and out of the Earth-atmosphere system. When reaching the atmosphere, a fraction (about 30 percent) of the incoming Sun’s radiation is directly reflected into space. The remaining part is absorbed by the atmosphere and Earth’s surface and reemitted as heat back into space.

Wage inequality within and across firms: the role of market forces, government and firm policiesWage inequality within and across firms: the role of market forces, government and firm policies03-09-202104-10-2021Wage inequality has increased sharply in many industrialised countries over the past decades. In Germany, for example, real (i.e. inflation-adjusted) wages at the bottom 10 percent of the wage distribution declined by more than 15 percent between 1995 and 2010, whereas real wages at the top 10 percent of the wage distribution rose by more than 12 percent over the same period.UtaSchönberg University College LondonFirmIneqSocietyThe PRj Volume 10Read Full Text Download (PDF)
