Press Releases   •   Oct 02, 2018 08:01 BST

Researchers from Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden, have now shown that studded winter tyres cost more lives than they save. The new study takes a holistic view of the tyres’ impact on wider public health. At the same time, they show that their use contributes to the bloody conflict in the Democratic Republic of Congo, and fatal accidents in their production phase.

Cashew nut-based Swedish boat wins Italian sailing competition

Press Releases   •   Sep 25, 2018 14:33 BST

At the 1001 Velacup sailing competition in Palermo, Italy, the team from Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden, raced home to first place. The winning boat, Linnea, was built of balsa wood, flax and a cashew nut-based epoxy, and proved to be considerably faster than the other competitors, thanks in part to a daring design that fared well in the light winds.

Quieter cities of the future, Lessening the severe health effects of traffic noise in cities by emission reductions

Traffic noise is the second biggest environmental problem in the EU, according to WHO. After air pollution, noise is affecting health the most. But legislation regarding noise pollution is insufficient. A new report shows how negative health effects of noise can be reduced. Several means are easiest to apply in dense cities.
