Heraeus Fusion Energy

Day of Light 2023: Fusion energy in the spotlight

On May 16, 1960, a bright beam of light cuts through the air: the first laser is used in a U.S. laboratory. To celebrate this breakthrough as well as the importance of science and applications related to light, UNESCO established the International Day of Light on this date. Our modern world would be hard to imagine without laser technology. This technology could even help to secure our energy supply in the near future: with nuclear/laser fusion - and with the customized laser optics made of ultrapure fused silica from Heraeus Conamic.

From biomass to green chemistry

From biomass to green chemistry

At present, petroleum is still the basis for most products in the chemical industry, such as plastics or pharmaceuticals. Because of climate change, there is a need for the industry to make biomass usable as a raw material. Therefore, experts research methods to convert biomass into basic chemicals. One source for this can be lignin – a substance from trees and shrubs. Heraeus Precious Metals has developed catalysts that make lignin usable as a raw material for bio-based chemicals.

 Discover the potential of lignin for green chemistry through precious metal catalysts from Heraeus.
