Green environments in residential areas impact the composition of sugar molecules in breastmilk
A new study conducted at the University of Turku, Finland, examined the association between the residential green environment and the individual oligosaccharide profile in the mother’s breastmilk. Oligosaccharides are sugar molecules that are the most common component in breastmilk after lactose ...
Novel, metallic fingerprint-based technique to detect and measure nanoplastics in organisms
A new study from the University of Eastern Finland shows that lettuce can take up nanoplastics from the soil and transfer them into the food chain. The concern about plastic pollution has become widespread after it was realised that mismanaged plastics in the environment break down into smaller ...
Gerresheimer participates in seed-round of the Finnish MedTech company and university spin-off
Gerresheimer AG and the Finnish start-up Adamant Health Oy partner up to develop a life-changing solution for millions of people worldwide suffering from Parkinson’s disease. The measuring technology and platform in development will address one of the biggest impediments in treating symptoms of ...
Sustainable coffee grown in Finland
VTT has successfully produced coffee cells in a bioreactor through cellular agriculture. The innovation can help to make the production of coffee more sustainable. The first batches produced by VTT in a laboratory in Finland smell and taste like conventional coffee. With increasing demand and ...
Researchers turn a non-toxic residue into wood coating that resists abrasion, stain, and sunlight.
Due to the global efforts to meet sustainability standards, many countries are currently looking to replace concrete with wood in buildings. France, for example, will require that all new public buildings will be made from at least 50 percent wood or other sustainable materials starting in ...
Woodly Ltd. has raised EUR 3 million in growth funding
Woodly Ltd., Finnish developer of wood based plastic, has raised EUR 3 million in growth funding for the commercialisation and internationalisation of their product innovation. “In recent years, plastic has become a bogeyman, the use of which many would like to abandon altogether, or at least ...
Our consumer products, such as food, cosmetics and clothes, might be filled with nanomaterials - unbeknownst to us. The use of nanomaterials remains unregulated and they do not show up in lists of ingredients. This is a cause of concern since nanomaterials can be more dangerous than COVID-19 in ...
Technique creates highly customized structures that could be used in regenerative medicine
A team at Aalto University has used bacteria to produce intricately designed three-dimensional objects made of nanocellulose. With their technique, the researchers are able to guide the growth of bacterial colonies through the use of strongly water repellent - or superhydrophobic - surfaces. The ...
In a study published in Advanced Materials, researchers at Aalto University, the University of Tokyo, Sichuan University, and the University of British Columbia have demonstrated that plant-derived cellulose nanocrystals (CNCs) can form an adhesive that fully integrates the concepts of ...
New method expands knowledge of carbon-based materials
Sensors manufactured with carbon-based materials can provide uniquely accurate and real-time information on hereditary diseases or the concentrations of drugs in the body. In addition to medicine, carbonaceous materials are used in batteries, solar cells and water purification. Other elements, ...
