CLImatic Manipulation of ECosystem Samples
Due to climate change, the world as we knowtoday is rapidly changing. Temperatures are rising, and both rain events and periods of drought become more frequent, intense and longer lasting. These changes are affecting ecosystems and the services they provide (e.g. food production, water storage, nutrient cycling) in unknown ways. Experiments in which climate extremes are manipulated were hard to perform, but CLIMECS greatly facilitates such experiments by exposing mini-ecosystems collected from nature to realistic climate scenario’s (e.g. simultaneously manipulating temperature and precipitation conditions), to test predictions on how climate change will affect nature in the near future.
Improving the plastic recycling process by providing a representative volumetric thermal analysis Veridis Instruments decreases the uncertainty in the recycling industry by increasing the accuracy and ease of use of the analytical methods currently being used in the industry. By decreasing the uncertainties of the recycled plastics, we increase the value of the plastic batches. […]
Make new. Be EERF. The EERF Project aims to demonstrate that plastic is a fantastic and very durable product and should not be wasted. We are setting up small-scale plastic recycling stations, aiming to make recycling of throw-away plastic and packaging easier by decentralising the process. Currently running a pilot at the VU.
