Safety: A NATO-ENEA project to protect airports, underground and train stations from the risk of terrorist attacks

Strengthening passenger security and preventing attacks with weapons or explosives in subways, railway stations, airports, but also in crowded spaces or meeting places, thanks to innovative surveillance technologies. This is the aim of the DEXTER (Detection of EXplosives and firearms to counter TERrorism) project, financed by NATO as part of the 'Science for Peace and Security Programme' and coordinated at technical and scientific level by ENEA.

Energy: ENEA successfully tests methane-hydrogen mixture in microturbine to generate electricity

AGATUR is the experimental plant in which ENEA researchers have successfully tested a gas microturbine to generate electricity, powered with a methane and hydrogen mix to simulate the effect of injecting green hydrogen into the gas network in a content variable over time. The outcomes of the tests performed at the ENEA Casaccia Research Center (Rome) - where the Italian hydrogen valley is being built – were given on the occasion of the UN World Day of Creativity and Innovation.

Environment: In italy wood production at risk due to ozone pollution

In Italy, the economic value of forests has dropped by 10% due to ozone pollution which has led to a reduction of more than 1% of the forest area destined to timber production, with potential damage that could reach up to 2.85 billion euro (around 870 euros per hectare), as shown in a study conducted by a team of 10 researchers from ENEA, Cnr and the University of Florence, in collaboration with the French satellite services company ARGANS, published in Nature Scientific Reports.
