Simple and effective resource efficiency measures along the food supply chain

...... also tackle salient issues across the whole of the food chain. These include achieving safer food production, recycling and reuse. Many natural resources - such as minerals, water, soil, biomass, land and energy - are used to grow and process food products in a highly inefficient manner. This can be due to a lack of technological solutions and knowledge, in combination with uncertainties ......

Researchers open new possibilities for characterizing nanoparticle interactions

...... understanding the structure and interactions where liquids and solids meet can accelerate design of new molecules to solve problems in medicine, environmental remediation, climate studies, biofuels, catalysts and energy storage. The experimental work was performed on EMSL's sum-frequency generation vibrational spectrometer (SFG-VS). SFG-VS is a sensitive optical spectroscopy that can ......

Understanding the impact of brown carbon on climate

...... What are brown carbon aerosols? Brown carbon aerosols are non-graphitic organic materials that are brown or yellowish in color. They come from different sources, including the burning of biomass, industrial emissions, combustion of fossil fuels and automobile exhaust. Brown carbon aerosols can also be formed in the atmosphere from reactions of biogenic organic gases, given off naturally by ......

Texas A&M breeder develops new sorghum variety for Central America

...... cropping season is completed in the transitional period of August to November. The new sorghum variety was selected because it possesses the unique combination of agronomic adaptation, biomass and grain yield, as well as improved forage quality due to the presence of the brown midrib trait, Rooney said. Officials present a bag of CI0947bmr sorghum seed to local producers during a ......
