  • How to program materials

    Can the properties of composite materials be predicted? Empa scientists have mastered this feat and thus can help achieve research objectives faster. This leads, for instance, to better recycling techniques and electrically conductive synthetic materials for the solar industry. Ali Gooneie simulate more

  • Fibers from old tires can improve fire resistance of concrete

    A new way of protecting concrete from fire damage using materials recycled from old tyres has been successfully tested by researchers at the University of Sheffield. The team used fibres extracted from the textile reinforcement commonly embedded into tyres to guarantee their performance. Adding thes more

  • Tiny fibers create unseen plastic pollution

    While the polyester leisure suit was a 1970s mistake, polyester and other synthetic fibers like nylon are still around and are a major contributor to the microplastics load in the environment, according to a Penn State materials scientist, who suggests switching to biosynthetic fibers to solve this more
