New step towards clean energy production from enzymes

23/08/2016

Oxygen inhibits hydrogenases, a group of enzymes that are able to produce and split hydrogen. This degradation is fatal for possible biotechnological applications of these enzymes for the production of clean energy. Understanding the mechanisms of this process is hence essential. An international team led by researchers from UCL (UK), CNRS (France) and nanoGUNE/Ikerbasque, have combined theory and experiment to characterize each chemical reaction step that results in the reduction of oxygen by the enzyme. These results are being published this week in the journal Nature Chemistry.

Measures to increase business demand for nanotechnology

Nanotransfer Seminar
29/06/2016

The Nanotransfer consortium identifies nanoscience as an essential strategy for the productive transformation of the Basque Country. Researchers and experts at Orkestra-Basque Institute of Competitiveness, Tecnalia, CIC Nanogune, NanoBasque-Spri, and the Universities of Deusto and of the Basque Country, have collaborated in a project analysing the development and implantation of nanoscience, micro- and nanotechnology in the Basque Country. This project, known as Nanotransfer, identifies commitment to nanoscience as an essential strategy in the production transformation process in the Basque Country and emphasises the need to speed up the incorporation of nanotechnologies into manufacturing processes and into products marketed.
