Micromachines | Special Issue : Sustainable and Reconfigurable Machines for Mini and Micro-Applications
The need for performances improvement and systems optimization remains an urgency in a wide variety of industrial and scientific fields. This need increases especially in mini and micro applications, in which high precisions and accuracies are required, and the instrumental obsolescence can negatively influence the system performance.
An investment of over €234 million from the Cohesion Fund will go to upgrade almost 117km of the Skawina-Zakopane railway line in Southern Poland. The project will start to be operational as of 2024.

Most electricity is still produced through the burning of fossil fuels and is responsible for 49% of the carbon emitted into the atmosphere. All software, from the applications running on your smartphone to the training of machine learning models running in data centers, consumes electricity in its execution. One of the best ways we can reduce electricity consumption and the subsequent emissions of carbon pollution made by our software is to make our applications more energy efficient.

Electrocatalytic synthesis represents highly tunable and versatile green chemistry approach to carbon dioxide conversion into value-added chemicals, synthesis of industrially-important precursors to pharmaceuticals and plastics, valorization of biomass by-products and wastewater treatment. When powered by renewable energy sources, it can also serve as a chemical storage solution to surplus electricity. The work in this group is focused on the development of efficient and selective electrocatalysts for these sustainable transformations and studies of reaction mechanisms to improve target product yields.
INTERVIEW: ‘Hero of the Planet’ Bill McDonough calls for a rethink of carbon in the circular economy
Bill McDonough pulled no punches. “It’s a very, very serious issue. The science is clear and the signals are seriously scary. Let’s just face it,” he said during an hour-long Zoom meeting from his home in Virginia in the US.
