New Studies Confirm: Biodegradable Plastics Boost Organic Recycling and Improve Mechanical Recycling

Analysing the quality of recycled plastics from 19 waste sorting and recycling facilities around the country, Corepla found that compostable plastics only made up 0.85% of the plastic input. Similar studies by the University of Wageningen show that there are no negative effects on the properties of recycled plastics containing starch film and PLA recyclates. Biodegradable plastics are designed to be treated in industrial composting plants. If they do enter mechanical recycling streams due to misthrows, they can easily be sorted out by available sorting technologies such as near infrared, as recent tests by the German research institute Knoten Weimar show.

3D Printed Hydrogen-resistant Titanium Aircraft parts

Physicists from Tomsk Polytechnic University are currently working to create hydrogen-resistant products out of titanium alloys based on additive manufacturing. The production of metal products using the technology ensures less material consumption as well as possibilities to develop complex geometric products. The Russian Science Foundation has recently supported TPU project Development of scientific foundations for the creation of hydrogen-resistant products from titanium alloys Ti-6Al-4V, Ti-6.5Al-3.5Mo-1.5Zr-0.3Si with a gradient structure of the near-surface layer manufactured by the additive manufacturing technology with a grant allocated for three years.

Atos’ Enterprise SSO as-a-Service brings password-free logins to both Cloud and on-premises applications

Evidian Enterprise Single Sign-On as-a-Service (E-SSO aaS) provides end-users with Single Sign-On access to both web and non-web applications, thus simplifying their daily lives by eliminating the need to constantly remember and re-enter passwords. Additionally it reduces resource on Security Management teams to manage password retrieval and renewal.
Security Managers have the assurance of reinforced security of application access and are able to lower helpdesk cost (employee lost password and locked account helpdesk calls reduced by up to 30%) and improve user efficiency. With the increasing number Cloud-based applications being used, secure access management which automates user access for both web and non-web applications, is essential.

Lufthansa Group partners up with Winding Tree to bring Blockchain Technology to the Travel Industry

Winding Tree has dedicated itself to the reorganization of travel distribution. With a decentralized B2B marketplace system powering blockchain-based travel booking transactions, startups and companies will be able to gain direct access to travel service providers' offerings without the inefficiencies given by a setup with many intermediaries. Simply put, in the future, airlines, hotels and other travel service providers will offer their services on Winding Tree's platform, and companies interested in content will only connect to the B2B blockchain-distributed digital marketplace to present specific offers tailored to their customers' needs. This will result in a large number of new apps for travelers, who will then be able to book Lufthansa Group flights via the offer that best suits their preferences.
