Danish-led research project couples academia with industry to pave the way for sustainable production of chemicals

The Department of Engineering at Aarhus University is heading a new international and intersectoral project, which will create 100 per cent pure, natural and sustainable chemical products by mimicking the metabolism of living organisms. The project is potentially ground-breaking for one of the world's most polluting industries.

The project, which is called REBOOT, is headed by Assistant Professor Patrick Biller from the Department of Engineering, Aarhus University. The project officially starts on 1 January 2020, and will be run at pilot scale at the department's Centre for Biorefining Technologies at Foulum, which is already home to one of the world's largest HTL reactors.

Revolutionising the way we manage waste: A Danish researcher is developing a pioneering new technology able to e.g. recover all phosphorus from manure and sludge

An engineer from Aarhus University has received the prestigious ERC Starting Grant for the launch of a new research project, which can have far-reaching and ground-breaking significance for the environment throughout the world. The project promises to completely revolutionise the way we manage liquid waste today.

In the future, AI will help expose stock-market fraud. Associate Professor Alexandros Iosifidis from the Department of Engineering at Aarhus University is leading the project, which is funded by the Independent Research Fund Denmark. Photo: Lars Kruse / AU Foto.

Danish researchers develop artificial intelligence to expose stock-market fraud

The Department of Engineering at Aarhus University is heading a new project to put an end to stock-exchange fraud and market manipulation. The researchers will use artificial intelligence (AI) to clean up the extensive fraud taking place, where control is currently implemented via manual sampling.
