Wood waste for decontaminationMuch as sponges soak up water and remove it from a surface, industrial sorbents collect molecules in fluids or gases. EU-funded scientists are developing carbon-based nanosorbents from vegetative waste for improved removal of industrial contaminants. 3.

Take football, a sport not traditionally associated with linguistic prowess, but which is replete with players who are fluent and articulate in several languages. 5.

The research could lead to improved building designs and a form of audio ‘Augmented Reality' (AR).
