Plastic recycling refers to the process of recovering waste or scrap plastic and reprocessing the materials into functional and useful products. This activity is known as the plastic recycling process. The goal of recycling plastic is to reduce high rates of plastic pollution while putting less pressure on virgin materials to produce brand new plastic products. This approach helps to conserve resources and diverts plastics from landfills or unintended destinations such as oceans.

Using Hydrogen Peroxide to Clean and Disinfect

Having a different cleaner for each room can be tedious. Thankfully, hydrogen peroxide cleans and disinfects multiple surfaces all on its own. Not only can you use it to disinfect your doorknobs, but it will clean and brighten your laundry as well. Learn where and how you can use hydrogen peroxide to disinfect your home and how safe it is to clean with hydrogen peroxide.

Superalloys - A Technical Guide

Superalloys provide the most reliable and cost-effective means of achieving high operating temperature and stress conditions in aircraft and industrial gas turbines and in a wide variety of other applications.

The Global Rise of Zero Liquid Discharge for Wastewater Management

Freshwater scarcity, one of the most critical global challenges of our time, poses a major threat to economic growth, water security, and ecosystem health. The challenge of providing adequate and safe drinking water is further complicated by climate change and the pressures of economic development and industrialization. The public and industrial sectors consume substantial amounts of freshwater while producing vast quantities of wastewater. If inadequately treated, wastewater discharge into the aquatic environment causes severe pollution that adversely impacts aquatic ecosystems and public health.

Automotive Foam Market Size, Forecasts, Emerging Trends, Research Report by 2027

The automotive foams improve vehicle safety, structural strength, acoustics as well as the comfort properties of the automobiles. Polyurethane foams are used to reduce noise vibration and harshness. Automotive foams are mostly made up of polyurethane and polyolefin materials. They also help in providing structural support to the vehicle. These are lightweight solutions for cavity sealing and stiffening. Automotive foams are used in wide applications including door panels, headrests, seat cushioning, frame rails, and engine cradles. Polyether polyols are low VOC foam type which help improve shape memory of foam after compression. Automotive foams help seal out cabin against road and engine.

Hydrogen Peroxide: The Body's Best Defence System

How does that happen? A foam forms when bubbles of a gas are trapped in a liquid or solid. In this case oxygen is generated when hydrogen peroxide breaks down into oxygen and water on contact with catalase, an enzyme found in liver.

An Ultimate Guide to Commercial Greenhouse System | Heating Systems | Cooling Systems

Greenhouses should provide a controlled environment for plant production with sufficient sunlight, temperature and humidity. Greenhouses need exposure to maximum light, particularly in the morning hours. Consider the location of existing trees and buildings when choosing your greenhouse site. Water, fuel and electricity make environmental controls possible that are essential for favorable results. For this reason, use reliable heating, cooling and ventilation. Warning devices might be desirable for use in case of power failure or in case of extreme temperatures.

Waste-to-Energy: Green solutions for Emerging Markets

Waste-to-Energy (WTE) or energy-from-waste is the process of generating energy in the form of electricity and/or heat from the incineration of waste. In the U.S., some cities primarily in the northeastern and mid-Atlantic, burn part of their municipal solid wastes. Hemmed in by major population centers, landfill space in these areas is at a premium, so burning wastes to reduce their volume and weight makes sense. Combustion reduces the volume of material by about 90 percent and its weight by 75 percent. The heat generated by burning wastes has other uses, as well, as it can be used directly for heating, to produce steam or to generate electricity.
