Special issue: innovative approaches in reshaping the supply chain for societal challenges

Institutional area

Guest Editors: Rosanna Fornasiero (CNR-IEIIT), Andrea Zangiacomi (CNR-STIIMA), Tatsushi Nishi, Toshiya Kaihara. We are pleased to invite you to contribute to the special issue Innovative approaches in reshaping the Supply Chain for societal challenges of the journal Production Planning and Control (Impact Factor: 7,044). The aim of this special issue is to reflect on the evolution of Supply Chain towards the Industry5.0 paradigm enhancing the active role of different Supply Chain stakeholders such as workers, consumers and citizens and leveraging digital technologies. In particular, it is necessary to fill the gap by collecting recent advancements in research and the application of interdisciplinary and innovative studies going beyond the factory level to address Supply Chain with the specific aim to reshape it for societal challenges

A new material increases the production of "green" hydrogen from biomass

News 17/05/2022

A newly synthesized nanomaterial is able to increase the production of green hydrogen from biomass through the photoreforming process, which exploits sunlight to "extract" hydrogen from green waste with the help of a catalyst, in this case a new photo-catalyst based on titanium dioxide. This is the result of a recent collaboration between the University of Trieste, Cnr-Iccom, Czech Advanced Technology and Research Institute of Olomouc and Cnr-Ism (Elettra Sincrotrone Trieste). A study published in Chem Catalysis
