Conference Paper
Full-text available
In cases of crisis and disaster like the current Covid-19 pandemic, mobile, decentralized systems for providing medical services to the population can be a crucial addition to existing healthcare infrastructure. One of the challenges is to bring the technical solutions for containing the pandemic to bear under the economic and social constraints of...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The global trends of population growth, urbanisation and volatile markets require a paradigm shift towards decoupling economic growth and resource consumption. This especially applies to the manufacturing industry. The visionary solution approach of the Ultra-Efficiency Factory supports the holistic improvement in the five fields of action - energy...
Technical Report

First comprehensive report on the biological transformation of industrial manufacturing in Germany
Article
India is booming! The people of this predominantly rural emerging economy are increasingly moving to the economically important conurbations resulting in sprawling urban centres challenged to keep up with adequate infrastructure development. While in 2016 about one third of India’s 1.31 billion inhabitants lived in cities, the urban population will...

Das HypoWave Projekt arbeitet an Lösungen für die qualitativ hochwertige Wasser- und Nährstoffwiederverwendung in der Landwirtschaft. Neben der speziellen Aufbereitung von kommunalem Abwasser und dem Einsatz in einem hydroponischen Gewächshaus in einer Pilotierungsanlage werden über Fallstudien die Rahmenbedingungen für Wasser- und Nährstoffwiederv...
Article
Developed more than a century ago, the potential of vacuum sewerage systems remains underexploited. At the same time, the rapid urbanization in Asia brings about major challenges for municipal utilities. In this context, the GIZ (Deutsche Gesellschaft fuer Internationale Zusammenarbeit) project ‘Integrated Resource Management in Asian Cities: the U...
Article
The species of Pleophylla Erichson, 1847, are revised here and the phylogenetic relationships of all known species inferred based on external and genital morphology. For almost half of the species we were able to reconstruct gene trees for one nuclear marker (internal transcribed spacer 1) and one mitochondrial gene (cytochrome oxidase subunit 1)....
Article
Today, indigenous forests cover less than 0.6% of South Africa's land surface and are highly fragmented. Most forest relicts are very small and typically occur in fire-protected gorges along the eastern Great Escarpment. Yet, they hold a unique and valuable fauna with high endemism and ancient phylogenetic lineages, fostered by long term climatic s...

Project
The aim of the transdisciplinary research network is to establish a new form of regional vegetable production. Based on the results of the HypoWave research project, farmers in the Gifhorn region decided to establish a company that produces hydroponically grown vegetables with recycled water. HypoWave+ accompanies this project scientifically and investigates open questions in the areas of water treatment, vegetable production, intelligent process control, quality management and institutional arrangements. The aim is to further develop the marketability of hydroponically produced vegetables by means of environmentally friendly water recycling with the aim of applying it at other locations as well.
