Most people no longer ask whether solar energy will be a success; the question is rather which forms of photovoltaic technology and system types will be successful. The total global installed PV capacity is fast approaching 100 GW, up from 1.5 GW in 2000 to 89.5 GW at the...
Recently, an acquaintance underwent what was expected to be a routine ablation procedure — nearly...
Now, equipped with a recently awarded federal grant, University of Minnesota researchers are working to even the playing field between traditional plastics and more environmentally friendly alternatives. The university’s Center for Sustainable Polymers received the...
Scientists at the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory have explained the complex behavior of polystyrene using its Linac Coherent Light Source (LCLS) X-ray laser. Polystyrene is a widely used polymer, namely in the manufacture of plastic cups and packing foams.
Industrial processes and consumption of fossil fuels release greenhouse gases, a major cause of global warming. An advanced membrane engineered by an international research team led by Easan Sivaniah at the Institute for Integrated Cell-Material Sciences (iCeMS) of Kyoto...
MPI-P scientists Kurt Kremer and Debashish Mukherji, together with their collaborator Carlos Marques from the French Centre national de la recherche scientifique, propose a novel framework to understand the solubility of smart polymers in solvent mixtures. Combining "generic"...
Global additive manufacturing and 3-D printing solutions provider, Stratasys, has introduced Acrylonitrile Styrene Acrylate (ASA) for FDM-based 3-D printing. ASA is a thermoplastic material that is also UV-resistant. ASA is a versatile...
