Microbial enzymes to produce greener detergents, textiles and cosmetics

FuturEnzyme, a European project led by the CSIC, aims to obtain microbial enzymes to replace chemical agents in consumer products. The scientific team will develop a method to quickly identify enzymes that are effective, stable, and that can be obtained through a low-cost process. The project will bring the developed process to industrial scale.

The SAGA10W campaign studies ocean circulation in the South Atlantic

The international campaign SAGA (South Atlantic Gateway) led by Institut de Ciències del Mar (ICM-CSIC), the University of Las Palmas (ULPGC) and the Spanish Institute of Oceanography (IEO) will release moorings in the ocean with different sensors to study how the South Atlantic currents behave. This set of instruments will allow to better know the deep-ocean circulation, that has a key role in keeping the climate equilibrium of the planet.
