See detailLife at low temperatures: is disorder the driving force?

The thermodynamic characterization of various biological systems from psychrophiles points to a larger entropic contribution when compared to the corresponding mesophilic or (hyper) thermophilic counterparts, either at the level of the macromolecules (thermodynamic and kinetic stabilities) or of their function (ligand binding, catalytic activity). It is suggested here that in an environment characterized by a low heat content (enthalpy) and at temperatures that strongly slowdown molecular motions, the cold-adapted biological systems rely on a larger disorder to maintain macromolecular dynamics and function. Such pre-eminent involvement of entropy is observed in the experimental results and, from a macroscopic point of view, is also reflected for instance by the steric hindrances introduced by cis-unsaturated and branched lipids to maintain membrane fluidity, by the loose conformation of psychrophilic proteins or by the local destabilization of tRNA by dihydrouridine in psychrophilic bacteria.

The locked-in syndrome (LIS) describes patients who are awake and conscious but severely deefferented leaving the patient in a state of almost complete immobility and loss of verbal communication. The etiology ranges from acute (e.g., brainstem stroke, which is the most frequent cause of LIS) to chronic causes (e.g., amyotrophic lateral sclerosis; ALS). In this article we review and present new data on the psychosocial adjustment to LIS. We refer to quality of life (QoL) and the degree of depressive symptoms as a measure of psychosocial adjustment. Various studies suggest that despite their extreme motor impairment, a significant number of LIS patients maintain a good QoL that seems unrelated to their state of physical functioning. Likewise, depression is not predicted by the physical state of the patients. A successful psychological adjustment to the disease was shown to be related to problem-oriented coping strategies, like seeking for information, and emotional coping strategies like denial--the latter may, nevertheless, vary with disease stage. Perceived social support seems to be the strongest predictor of psychosocial adjustment. QoL in LIS patients is often in the same range as in age-matched healthy individuals. Interestingly, there is evidence that significant others, like primary caregivers or spouses, rate LIS patients' QoL significantly lower than the patients themselves. With regard to depressed mood, ALS patients without symptoms focus significantly more often on internal factors that can be retained in the course of the disease contrary to patients with depressive symptoms who preferably name external factors as very important, such as health, which will degrade in the course of the disease. Typically, ALS patients with a higher degree of depressive symptoms experience significantly less "very pleasant" situations. The herein presented data strongly question the assumption among doctors, health-care workers, lay persons, and politicians that severe motor disability necessarily is intolerable and leads to end-of-life decisions or euthanasia. Existing evidence supports that biased clinicians provide less-aggressive medical treatment in LIS patients. Thus, psychological treatment for depression, effective strategies for coping with the disease, and support concerning the maintenance of the social network are needed to cope with the disease. Novel communication devices and assistive technology now offers an increasing number of LIS patients to resume a meaningful life and an active role in society. [less ▲]

Construction is a field which is concerned by environment. Tools as environmental product declarations are increasingly often used to compare several products and to take account of the environmental sphere in the choice. Environmental declarations of Belgian bluestone and sandstone products were realized in accordance with the ISO standards and following the standard NF P 01-010. The main goals of these studies were to obtain Belgian environmental product declarations to strengthen existing databases and to provide defences against Asian competition. Indeed, competition with China for bluestone products and with India for sandstone pavement is very important due the fact of the very competitive prices for foreign products. The impacts on climate change, resources and acidification of the sole transport were taken into account for foreign products and they are at less as important as these obtained for the whole life cycle of Belgian products.

In its Regional Policy Statement for 2009-2014, the Walloon Government (Belgium) undertakes to make Wallonia a model of good governance. Applying this principle in the field of the environment needs to be based on a continuous, objective and strict evaluation of the evolution of the state of environmental components (air, water, soil, biodiversity, etc.), the pressures to which they are subjected, the resultant impacts and the measures taken to improve living conditions within our Region. Within this framework, the General Operational Direction of Agriculture, Natural Resources and Environment (DGARNE) realises reports on the state of the environment in Wallonia, in close collaboration with universities and research centres. A chapter is dedicated to the efficient use of water resources, including a life cycle assessment of anthropic water and rain water harvesting. [less ▲]

Many drivers exist to persuade EU businesses to embrace the opportunities of the circular economy. However, the challenges faced by companies, particularly among SME’s, in the drive for resource efficiency include access to funding, knowledge and capability, and ability to implement cost-effective technological solutions. It was these factors that inspired the creation of the ReNEW network. ReNEW, ‘Resource innovation Network for European Waste’, is a €5 million project funded by the Interreg IVB North West Europe scheme aiming to increase cooperation between research and business endeavours to create value from waste by optimising novel technologies for extracting materials from waste and their reuse in the supply chain. ReNEW also aims to inform local, national and European policy makers, and to share transnational best practice and improve specific support to meet the innovation needs of the waste sector. Within the frame of this project, several technologies are investigated by partners to improve the valorisation of organic wastes in chemicals such as the production of furfural (C5H4O2 - CAS 98-01-1) by the chemical hydrolysis of contaminated/hazardous woody biomass.
