    Dairy farming is New Zealand‟s pre-eminent primary industry. It achieves large export earnings but is also responsible for a large proportion of the country‟s greenhouse gas emissions. One of those greenhouse gases is CO₂, ...
  • Lay, Mark C.; Verbeek, Casparus Johan R.; Ahuja, Gaurav (2014)
    Novotein thermoplastic (NTP) is a bloodmeal based plastic developed by the University of Waikato by mixing bloodmeal with water, additives and tri-ethylene glycol (TEG - a plasticiser and petroleum based product) so it can ...
  • Duke, Mike; Fow, Alista (IEEE, 2015)
    Due to the low weight of most current electric vehicles, the effectiveness of commercial passive dampers is reduced when compared to current production automobiles. Active dampers allow for a significant reduction in the ...

    Microcystins are cyclic peptides produced by multiple cyanobacterial genera. After accumulation in the liver of animals they inhibit eukaryotic serine/threonine protein phosphatases, causing liver disease or death. Accurate ...
  • Peters, Monica A.; Hamilton, David P.; Eames, Chris W. (New Zealand Ecological Society, 2015)
    More than 600 community environmental groups across New Zealand are engaged in restoring degraded sites and improving and protecting habitat for native species. In the face of ongoing biodiversity declines, resource ...
