Climate-neutral fuels for the mobility of tomorrow

They have set themselves a big goal: a team of researchers and industry professionals wants to produce 380,000 litres of "green" petrol in Freiberg by 2026. From October to December 2023, the consortium, which includes the TU Bergakademie Freiberg and CAC ENGINEERING GMBH from Chemnitz, was able to produce a further 55,000 litres of the sustainable synthetic fuel in Freiberg.  Read more...

TUBAF develops fire service app for Saxony-Anhalt

The TU Bergakademie Freiberg (TUBAF) has already developed a deployment app for the fire services in Saxony and Thuringia as part of a long-standing research collaboration. Jens Then, Chancellor of TUBAF, has now signed a contract with the Ministry of the Interior and Sport of Saxony-Anhalt. The fire brigades there will also receive an app from December 2024. "This will support firefighters at the scene of an emergency and on the way there," explains Professor Bastian Pfleging, head of the development team at TUBAF. The app offers a wide range of information such as vehicle rescue data sheets, a hazardous materials database, hydrant maps, a document library and respiratory protection monitoring for the emergency services.  Read more...

International study of lakes: Once oxygen deficient, always oxygen deficient

Anoxia threatens inland waters worldwide. Once it has occurred in a lake, the lack of oxygen even sets in motion a downward spiral that accelerates with increasing global warming. This is indicated by the results of an international study involving researchers of TU Bergakademie Freiberg, which were published in the scientific journal "Global Change Biology". According to the study, lakes that were once affected by a lack of oxygen in deep water are affected again the following year. As a result, the living conditions for fish and invertebrates continue to deteriorate, greenhouse gases are increasingly released and nutrient cycles are intensified.  Read more...

Using clay to combat eternal toxins

PFAS filters available for industrial waste are usually made of activated carbon (PFAS = perfluorinated and polyfluorinated alkyl compounds). As this is comparatively expensive, researchers are looking for alternative filter materials for the so-called "eternal toxins", whose hazardous residues only degrade very slowly in the environment. A team from the TU Bergakademie Freiberg is now proposing a clay made of bentonite modified with organic substances as a possible PFAS filter. The results appear in the current issue of the journal "Chemie Ingenieur Technik".  Read more...

H2 ready? Collaborative project shows use of hydrogen in industrial ovens

Whether for steel and glass production or in many other industrial plants: burners that convert hydrogen into heat instead of natural gas in the future are - alongside electricity from renewable energies - the basis for a successful energy transition in industry. But how can this work when hydrogen has significantly different properties to natural gas? Over the past three years, a research project at TU Bergakademie Freiberg has been investigating solutions for industrial furnaces, industrial heating systems and furnaces. The team from the Chair of Gas and Heating Technology and its partners present the results at the end of the project in Freiberg.  Read more...
