Innovative Biotechnology solutions FOR black stains removal and preventive conservation of historical and culturally important MURAL paintings (BIO4MURAL)
Local CoordinatorFundação para a Ciência e a TecnologiaSeveral mural paintings (15th/16th centuries) located in churches in the North region of the country being subject to environmental fluctuations where no measures of preventive conservation took place, disclose a chromatic alteration in the form of dark stains. The removal of the pigmentation hasn’t been successful or much tested so far. To char...
Solar thermochemical production of hydrogen based on cork Ecoceramics (H2CORK)
CoordinatorFundação para a Ciência e a TecnologiaGoal: H2CORK will develop novel CeO2-based Ecoceramics, exploiting the regular, highly porous microstructure of sustainable cork templates, for the innovative renewable production of hydrogen via direct solar thermochemical fuel production (TCFP). Sustainable alternatives to fossil fuels, such as H2, are urgently nee...
