From Danish hemp fields to sustainable textiles

One hectare of Danish cultivated hemp can replace 2-3 hectares of cotton and requires significantly less water in production. A new project, supported by the Innovation Fund Denmark, will develop a method that will make hemp textiles a sustainable alternative to cotton.

Intelligent camera technology to revolutionise plastics recycling

A new research project is aiming to develop a camera-based separation system that can separate plastic waste according to type. The machine will be implemented at plastic recyclers, enabling the manufacturing industry to significantly increase the use of recycled plastics.

How do we design reliable AI for marine robots?

Intelligent marine robots open up a wide range of possibilities in the vast unknown areas below sea level, covering more than 70 per cent of the surface of the Earth. However, we need reliable artificial intelligence if robots are to operate on their own. A new EU-funded project will address this problem.
