Processing milk -- how concentrates help to save energy
Powdered milk is a vital ingredient in infant formula and also used in baked goods and confectionary products. It is manufactured using an energy-intensive process chain that involves concentrating and drying milk. Researchers at Technische Universität München are investigating energy-efficient ways of making concentrates -- with promising results: By combining different membrane separation processes, they have succeeded in reducing the amount of energy required to concentrate milk by around 20 percent.

Ambitious EU targets for renewable energies make economic sense
Even beyond the year 2020 European energy policy will require ambitious expansion targets for renewables but also scope for their national implementation. That is the result of an international study lead by environmental economists at the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research. The German Renewable Energy Law which has been much criticised recently is also not inconsistent with the idea of a European internal market, say the scientists.
