LOS ANGELES, March 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, global biopharmaceutical company Grifols SA, announced the decision of its Executive Committee to validate the "MiniFrac" Facility which will provide additional capacity thereby allowing the company to increase the overall plasma throughput at its Los Angeles manufacturing complex by as much as 700,000 liters. This will result in increased production of Grifols' proprietary hemophilia therapies, immune globulins, and albumin. Grifols management...

BRUSSELS (Reuters) - The European Union agreed on Friday to include India in a 10-billion-euro project to build an experimental nuclear fusion reactor that in the long-run could provide virtually unlimited, cheap and clean energy. The EU's willingness to work with India on a civil nuclear project comes months after the United States said it would support India's nuclear power development despite its refusal to sign a global treaty barring the spread of atomic weapons. That move was...

By Guy Faulconbridge MOSCOW (Reuters) - Science's quest to find a cheap andinexhaustible way to meet global energy needs took a major stepforward on Tuesday when a 30-nation consortium chose France tohost the world's first nuclear fusion reactor. After months of wrangling, France defeated a bid from Japanand signed a deal to site the 10-billion-euro ($12.18-billion)experimental reactor in Cadarache, near Marseille. The project will seek to turn seawater into fuel bymimicking the way the...

Half-ton levitating ring is key to work CAMBRIDGE, Mass. -- MIT and Columbia University students and researchers have begun operation of a novel experiment that confines high-temperature ionized gas, called plasma, using the strong magnetic fields from a half-ton superconducting ring inside a huge vessel reminiscent of a spaceship. The experiment, the first of its kind, will test whether nature's way of confining high-temperature gas might lead to a new source of energy for the world. First...
