Aarhus University to build a test facility for technology that can store wind energy in ‘water balloons’

With a grant of almost DKK 5 million from the Energy Technology Development and Demonstration Programme, EUDP, under Danish Energy Agency, work is about to begin on building a 100 sqm test facility to demonstrate new technology that stores green surplus energy in giant underground water balloons.

New technology can significantly reduce ammonia and methane emissions from agriculture

A Danish research team has invented a natural additive for livestock manure to reduce emissions of various gases from the manure, for example the greenhouse gas methane.

"The building management team have the greatest influence on efficiency, and thereby on how much money is earned. And the way you increase efficiency is by using the methods, tools and knowledge that already exist," says Hasse Neve (right) who, together with Professor Søren Wandahl (left) and others, is behind the new research that shows how to change productivity development in the construction industry.

Construction: How to turn 36 seconds into USD 5.4 billion

A team of researchers from Aarhus University have, for the first time ever, linked 40 years of productivity data from the construction industry with the actual work done. The results show that productivity in the construction industry has been declining since the 1970s. The results also explain the decline and how to achieve far more efficient…

In 2020, more young people have an engineering degree programme as their first choice. Jens Villadsen has completed his first year of MScENG in Computer Engineering, which is among the most popular degree programmes this year together with BScENG in Software Technology. (Photo: Melissa Yildirim)

Photonics engineers and physicists ally to make encryption completely secure

In our increasingly digitised society, exchanges of private and sensitive information are almost exclusively digital. Now researchers in a new project are working on photonic integrated circuits to make our digital data secure with unbreakable encryption.

"As is often the case with physics, when you try to solve one problem, another arises in its wake. You often discover new things that turn out to be of fundamental importance, but that’s what makes engineering science so much fun," says Mikael Andersen Langthjem. Photo: Melissa Yildirim, AU Foto.
