In this experiment, waste paper will be used as raw material for the production of ethanol. Paper will be pre-treated (chopped and mixed with water), digested with a safe commercial enzyme and fermented with regular grocery store yeast. Ethanol generated by these two reactions will be then monitored through the use of either an ethanol sensor or a dye that, reacting selectively with alcohol, will change colour revealing its presence.

Italian FlagIn questo esperimento, la carta da riciclare sarà utilizzata come materia prima per la produzione di etanolo. La carta sarà pre-trattata (tritata e mescolata con acqua), digerita con un enzima commerciale sicuro e fermentata con semplice lievito alimentare. L'etanolo generato da queste due reazioni sarà poi monitorato attraverso l'uso di un sensore di etanolo o di un colorante che, reagendo selettivamente con l'alcol, cambierà colore rivelando la sua presenza.

This "toolkit" introduces school pupils to the fascinating world of fiber reinforced plastics. Special attention is put on the advantageous properties of these materials and also the hurdles that still have to be overcome to fully recycle fiber reinforced plastics. In addition, school pupils will get an insight into biobased matrix materials which open up a host of research opportunities and have the potential to party solve the recycling problem.(download pdf)

German bottonDas vorliegende „Toolkit“ soll die spannende Welt der Faserverbundwerkstoffe für Schülerinnen und Schüler erlebbar gemacht werden. Hierbei soll besonderes Augenmerk einerseits auf die Leistungsfähigkeit dieser Werkstoffe, andererseits aber auch auf die bislang noch nicht hinreichend geklärten Schwierigkeiten bei Fragen des Recyclings von FVK gelegt werden. Gleichzeitig soll den Schülerinnen und Schülern ein Ausblick auf die Möglichkeiten von biobasierten Matrixwerkstoffen ermöglicht werden, die eine Teillösung des Recyclingproblems und vielfältige Forschungsfelder eröffnen.
