Algengene könnten Landpflanzen ertragreicher machen

Spezielle Meeresschnecken, die auch im Mittelmeer leben, verwischen die sonst so klar gezogene Linie zwischen dem Tier- und dem Pflanzenreich. Sie sind die einzigen bekannten Tiere, welche Photosynthese betreiben – sonst eine definierende Eigenschaft der Pflanzen. Wissenschaftler der Heinrich-Heine-Universität haben nun in einer Kooperation mit einer Arbeitsgruppe des Forschungsmuseums Alexander Koenig (Bonn) die „photosynthetischen Schnecken“ neu untersucht und ihre überraschenden Ergebnisse in zwei, in den Fachblättern „Proceedings of the Royal Society B“ und „Genome Biology and Evolution“ erschienenen Artikeln, publiziert.

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). Weiterlesen →
