Wageningen University and airline Arke to work together on sustainable jet fuel

The airline Arke and Wageningen UR (University & Research centre) have joined forces to work on developing sustainable jet fuel derived from algae. Microalgae have great potential for producing sustainable biofuels, such as biokerosene, to meet the future fuel requirements of the aviation industry. For the next six months, Wageningen UR will be conducting research into the techno-economic feasibility of algae-based biofuels for aircraft. This research has been commissioned by Arke and is co-funded by the Centre for Biobased Economy (CBBE). Continue Reading →

Grünalgen wackeln sich in den Takt

Der Schlag von Geißeln ist ein Grundprinzip für Bewegungen im Zellkosmos. Wie aber mehrere der kleinen Zellschwänze synchronisiert werden, war bisher ungewiss. Dresdner Max-Planck-Forscher vom Max-Planck-Institut für molekulare Zellbiologie und Genetik und vom Institut für Physik komplexer Systeme haben nun zeigen können, wie die Grünalge Chlamydomonas ihre beiden Schwimmarme durch eine raffinierte Wackelbewegung im Gleichtakt hält.
