“Eucalyptus Bears Both Catalyst And Biofuel”
Eucalyptus_c5sc03377b-ga_630m“Leftovers from the catalytic conversion of biomass into biofuels and biochemicals need not go to waste. So say Japanese researchers who have devised a method using eucalyptus trees that regenerates residue from the process into fresh catalyst.
Many expect biomass will play a key role in sustaining society’s future energy demands. The most abundant non-food biomass is lignocellulose, composed of cellulose, hemicellulose and lignin. To convert the biomass to energy, it is hydrolysed to monomeric sugars, which can be converted into other valuable compounds and used as fuel.

The hydrolysis is often catalysed by enzymes or soluble acids, but these are expensive, and a homogeneous catalyst is hard to reuse. Even a heterogeneous catalyst causes problems: cellulose and hemicellulose convert to glucose and xylose, respectively, during the hydrolysis, but solid lignin remains and clogs up the catalyst, rendering it unusable after the first reaction.
To solve this, Atsushi Fukuoka, of Hokkaido University and co-workers tried generating fresh catalyst out of the residual lignin itself. They used eucalyptus as both the raw biomass source and as the precursor for the catalyst. Eucalyptus powder, from the trunk of the tree, composed mainly of lignocellulose, is oxidised in air to give an aromatic polymer, named E-Carbon, which catalyses the hydrolysis. ‘We speculate that the oxidation produces reactive functional groups, which further react to form an aromatic framework,’ says Fukuoka. E-Carbon and more eucalyptus powder are then milled together and hydrolysed, producing sugars in high yield whilst leaving behind solid catalyst contaminated with lignin residue. Finally, oxidation in air converts the lignin–catalyst mixture to fresh catalyst and the cycle begins again.(…)”

“La Chine Veut Vulgariser Les Vertus Du Bambou En Afrique”
62B02EECC8F54F06D01810D6804CCA55

“A l’occasion de la COP 21, la Chine a dévoilé son ambition de renforcer le savoir-faire des Africains dans le domaine des nouveaux produits dérivés du bambou en établissant un nouveau réseau d’échange de connaissances.
La Chine va collaborer avec les pays africains pour bâtir un partenariat grâce auquel certaines connaissances sur la culture et les produits du bambou, comme les agrocarburants ou les briquettes de charbon à base de bambou, seront diffusées pour que d’autres pays producteurs de bambou puissent en profiter.
Lancé au cours d’un événement organisé le 9 décembre dernier à Paris (en France) en marge de la COP 21, le partenariat sera placé sous la supervision de l’INBAR, une organisation intergouvernementale basée en Chine dont la mission consiste à réduire la pauvreté et prévenir la destruction de l‘environnement, grâce au bambou et au rotin.
La Chine a lancé en septembre dernier un fonds doté de 20 milliards de renminbi (environ 3,1 milliards de dollars) pour renforcer la coopération Sud-Sud sur les changements climatiques ; une partie de cette somme sera consacrée à cette nouvelle initiative.
Les partisans du projet estiment que sa croissance rapide, associée à sa facilité d’entretien, font du bambou une plante idéale à la fois pour l’absorption du carbone atmosphérique et pour la production d’une matière première pour les agrocarburants et les biens de consommation.
“Sur la base du savoir-faire chinois dans ce domaine, le bambou doit aujourd’hui faire l’objet d’une dynamique Sud-Sud-Nord pour les initiatives de lutte contre les changements climatiques”, prône Hans Friederich, directeur général de l’INBAR.(…)”

“Naturex Develops NaDES Technology-based New Eutectys™ Range for Skin & Hair Formulations”
Eutectysnaturex

“At the upcoming Cosmetagora show, to be held in Paris in January, Naturex will showcase Eutectys™. This new botanical extract collection is based on a patented extraction process called Eutectigenesis, which consists of extracting the active compounds of the plant through the formation of NaDES. Eutectys™ is composed of six high-definition extracts that have undergone Eutectigenesis; this breakthrough eco-extraction technology offers a natural alternative to conventional solvents and makes it possible to capture the plant cell’s most precious metabolites, in order to obtain biomimetic extracts with augmented phytoactive profiles and improved performance. This botanical collection includes, among others, olive leaf, saffron flower, and horsetail, all well-known for their restoring and anti-aging properties, and available for skin and hair formulations.

Nature-inspired products have been setting the trend over the last few years as cosmetic formulators are constantly looking to expand the category in a sustainable way. Natural Deep Eutectic Solvents (NaDES) – a new type of natural solvents that reproduce the plants’ intracellular environment – are an innovative way to answer market demand. Indeed, while the most active molecules are synthesized at the very core of the plant cell, some of these metabolites are not always fully soluble in water or in lipid phases. Plants may instead store and transport these compounds in a third type of liquid phase: the so-called natural deep eutectic solvents (NaDES).(…)”

Skin-moisturizing or wrinkle-improving external composition and cosmetic composition
European Patent Application EP2954897
Publication date: Dec. 16, 2015
Assignee: Korea Institute of Oriental Medicine

According to these inventors, cosmetics containing collagen are used to address wrinkles. However, collagen, which is a polymer, is barely absorbed into the percutaneous layer and thus performs little function, resulting in insignificant wrinkle improvement.
As a result, the present composition was designed to effectively impart skin-moisturizing and wrinkle-improving effects. It contains, as an active ingredient, a compound extracted from the evergreen perennial Anemarrhena asphodeloides Bunge, or a pharmaceutically acceptable salt thereof.
Said composition prevents skin moisture loss and suppresses skin tissue damage induced by UV rays, in turn providing skin-wrinkle preventing or alleviating effects.(…)”

“Naolys Launches New Data for Smooth Lightening White Rose to Get Radiant Skin Complexion”
whiterose

“Naolys has unveiled new data addressing important need for light and radiant skin complexion, uniform skin tone with its white rose-based anti-aging ingredient, Smooth Lightening White rose, revives the complexion’s radiance, making it brighter and more uniform; reduces pigmentation defects.
Throughout the year, especially in the winter, many city-dwellers complain of a dull, grey, complexion, lacking in radiance. This can be explained by multiple factors: beyond the possible negligence of our skin, we lead high speed lives in an environment that presents many different kinds of stress, and which ultimately can threaten our skin at any time. In the city, for example, the skin is exposed to pollutants, as well as UVB. According to recent studies, these are likely to increase cellular oxidation and weaken the skin barrier. This daily exposure has negative consequences for our skin’s health; it also increases chronological ageing, which destabilizes and slows normal cell function.
But the cause can also be associated with our skin type. In Asia, in addition to a tendency to pigment imbalance, women have more reactive skin, which dehydrates faster, and can quickly appear dull, especially when judged by the beauty standards set by the stars of the cinema and music industries.
Smooth Lightening White rose’s action is concentrated on the epidermis, in its upper layers, where the living cells are closest to the external environment, and react to stress. It has a protective effect, and supports natural mechanisms that have deteriorated due to ageing and environmental factors.(…)”
