LOS

The continuously improving performance of UVC LEDs over the past few years offers new possibilities in the design and construction of UV photometers for the measurement of ozone. The aim is to develop an automated experimental setup to determine the long-term stability of the LED ozone sensor as well as methodology for monitoring.

Nitr-O-zon

The occurrence of N-nitrosamines is an important public health issue. Due to their good water solubility, they enter the aquatic environment via industrial and municipal input pathways. For companies, they are a major problem due to their carcinogenic potential, diversity and versatile occurrence due to frequent formation in technical processes. The aim is to develop a sensitive, sufficiently selective, economical, and on-site analytical method with sample preparation that can be automated as much as possible.

NNOccSafe

N-nitrosamines, along with other pollutants, have become a cross-sectoral, persistent, and important health issue in various areas of occupational, environmental and product protection in recent years. They are among the organic nitrogen compounds with a high carcinogenic potential. The aim is to provide a new method with which, firstly, nitrosamines in air and, secondly, also in other matrices can be measured more sensitively than before with simultaneous robustness and result validity.

ALBERO

The aim of ALBERO is to develop concepts and technologies for the safe integration of alternatively fuelled vehicles into RORO ferry services. Alternative propulsion systems such as electric vehicles and battery-powered cars as well as alternative fuels such as natural gas and hydrogen are to be considered. The project will develop technical, structural and organisational measures to enable safe transport and (for electric vehicles) safe charging during the journey.

Full Domain Analysis for Fluid Mechanics

Artificial intelligence methods can efficiently help us understand aftermath requirements, constraints, and decision-making processes at an early stage. Algorithms are typically used in late stages of engineering development projects. We want to reverse this and show engineers early on which types of solutions meet their requirements.

Green hydrogen from brewing biomass

In this project, the Bonn-Rhein-Sieg University of Applied Sciences will analyse the availability of brewer's grains and the sustainability of procurement and processing. The design of a suitable electrochemical electrolysis cell will be carried out at Robert Gordon University.

INTERFACES - Supporting Pathways to Sustainable Land Management in Africa

Land management and the securing, use, control and governance of land-related natural resources is one of the key drivers for sustainable development in Africa. Sustainable land management should contribute to food security, adaptation of agriculture and forestry to climate change, nature and environmental protection, and be organized in a way that contributes to social justice. Since October 2022, the German Research Ministry (BMBF) is supporting four regional research and development (R&D) projects that will contribute to this aim.

PräventinS

The aim of the project PräventinS is the development of a prevention strategy to curb the spread of invasive pests, introduced through container freight, in Germany and the EU. This is initially done using the example of the detection of the Asian long-horned beetle (Anoplophora glabripennis, ALB for short), which usually spreads via imported pallet wood.

OptoSpin

Sensors ensure our safety in fire and gas detectors, for example, and inform us about invisible chemical (hazardous) substances, whereby reliability and selectivity are the most important requirements. The aim is to develop new types of sensors with increased selectivity. They consist of liquid crystals which, by adding optically active substances, adopt a special structure that reflects only a narrow wavelength range of the incident light, making the liquid crystal appear coloured. A chemical reaction with an analyte changes the reflected wavelength range and leads to visible colour changes.

SYNergie

SYNergie is a joint project with the Julius Kühn Institute (JKI) and the Osnabrück University of Applied Sciences and is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture (BMEL). The aim of the project is the detection and inactivation of the potato fungus Synchytrium endobioticum (SE). This fungus uses potato plants as a host plant and triggers the so-called potato wart disease. Due to the formation of very resistant permanent sori (encapsulated spores) in the soil, which last up to 46 years, Synchytrium endobioticum has been classified as a quarantine pathogen.
