Ban on microbeads offers best chance to protect oceans and aquatic species


An outright ban on the common use of plastic "microbeads" from products that enter wastewater is the best way to protect water quality, wildlife, and resources used by people, a group of conservation scientists suggest in a new analysis. These microbeads are one part of the microplastic problem ...


WSU researchers create super-stretchable metallic conductors for flexible electronics


Washington State University researchers have discovered how to stretch metal films used in flexible electronics to twice their size without breaking. The discovery could lead to dramatic improvements and addresses one of the biggest challenges in flexible electronics, an industry still in its ...
