Fish extinctions alter critical nutrients in water, study shows

...sh species accounted for more than half of all the recycled nutrients in the ecosystems studied, the computer simulations found. "The loss of the most heavily fished species led to the fastest declines in nutrient recycling," said lead author Peter McIntyre, a postdoctoral researcher at Wright State Univers...

Biodiesel study targets cleaner air, cleaner engines

...ich in turn will increase market opportunities for recycled materials and oils and give farmers the chance to grow some of their own fuel. Recent government announcements supporting renewable fuels will help advance the demonstration and use of biodiesel on farms. ...

Ocean's 'twilight zone' may be a key to understanding climate change

...xide is often consumed by animals and bacteria and recycled in the "twilight zone," a dimly lit area 100 to 1,000 meters below the surface. Because the carbon often never reaches the deep ocean, where it can be stored and prevented from re-entering the atmosphere as a green-house gas, the oceans may have litt...

Proteins necessary for brain development found to be critical for long-term memory

...al during development is retained in the adult and recycled in the service of memory formation," said Thomas J. Carew, Donald Bren Professor and chair of UCI's Department of Neurobiology and Behavior.

BC catalyst discovery promises faster, cheaper drug production

...minimizes waste, and can be used in air and can be recycled several times," Prof. Snapper added. "Together, these properties make our discovery an important one both from the theoretical as well as the practical point of view." "This is an elegant solution to a very important, practical problem, with the pot...

Developing uses for sugar-cane bagasse: Biotechnology applied to the paper industry

...se, yeast extracts and so on). It can therefore be recycled in the system or eliminated in a second system associated with it. Replication of the fermentation trials at a larger scale, in an 18 litre bioreactor, confirmed the efficiency of the laccase production obtained using bagasse and ethanol (90 000 U...

Recycled paper and compost could both be key tools to control plant disease

Finding a better way to make biodiesel

...er conversion to biodiesel, a catalyst that can be recycled and elimination of the wash step in the production process. Lin's particles can also be used as a catalyst to efficiently convert animal fats into biodiesel by creating a mixed oxide catalyst that has both acidic and basic catalytic sites. Acidic c...

New organic substrate

...r, this substrate has the advantage that it can be recycled and is more economic than other, imported ones such as peat or coconut fibre. These are the findings of researchers at the Public University of Navarre who, jointly with the Aralur company in Ziordia (Navarre), have developed this substrate materia...

A new focus for the mechanism of nerve growth
