Fifty years of propionic acid manufacturing at BASF


A rather acidic success story started at BASF 50 years ago: in the summer of 1960, the company brought on stream the first large-scale manufacturing plant for propionic acid at its integrated Ludwigshafen Verbund site. The inauguration of another facility that produces this carboxylic acid ...


Scientists show there's nothing boring about watching paint dry


It turns out that watching paint dry might not be as boring as the old adage claims. A team led by Yale University researchers has come up with a new technique to study the mechanics of coatings as they dry and peel, and has discovered that the process is far from mundane. In the August 9-13 ...


KSB extends India foundry


KSB Group has expanded the steel foundry capacities at its Indian site of Vambori over the past months. Two new natural gas-fired furnaces contribute to increasing the steel castings output from 300 tons to 1200 tons per year. The foundry specialises in steels and stainless steels difficult to ...


Donut-shaped structures could lead to self-cleaning surfaces


A straightforward method for making films of doughnut-shaped (toroidal) structures could lead to improved smart materials, such as self-cleaning surfaces and scaffolds for biological sensors. Ordered patterns of the structures can by formed by simply dropping then evaporating solutions of chiral ...


Linde KCA receives licence to build fluidized-bed drying plants from RWE


RWE Power and Linde-KCA-Dresden GmbH, a subsidiary of The Linde Group, have signed a framework agreement on the use of technology developed by RWE Power for drying lignite. This turns Linde-KCA-Dresden into a provider and supplier of WTA developed by RWE Power. WTA is the German abbreviation for ...


Argonne scientists reveal secret of nanoparticle crystallization in real time


A collaboration between the Advanced Photon Source and Center for Nanoscale Materials at U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory has "seen" the crystallization of nanoparticles in unprecedented detail. “Nanoscience is a hot issue right now, and people are trying to create ...


Bionic coating could help ships to economize on fuel

Materials based on water ferns could reduce fuel consumption massively


The hairs on the surface of water ferns could allow ships to have a 10 per cent decrease in fuel consumption. The plant has the rare ability to put on a gauzy skirt of air under water. Researchers at the University of Bonn, Rostock and Karlsruhe now show in the journal Advanced Materials (doi: ...


Song receives ACS's Henry H. Storch Award in Fuel Chemistry


Chunshan Song, Distinguished Professor of fuel science and director of the College of Earth and Mineral Sciences' Energy Institute, Penn State, received the Henry H. Storch Award in Fuel Chemistry. The award in recognized Song's outstanding contributions to fuel science, especially in clean ...


VTT has developed a fully recyclable coating for food & pharmaceuticals


VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland has developed an environmentally-friendly packaging coating solution. Especially suitable for food and pharmaceutical packaging, the coating offers a new method for manufacturing fully recyclable, thin, light and air-tight packaging materials. Developed ...


GEA Process Engineering: Spray drying of nano particles allows safe industrial use


GEA Niro, a technology centre in GEA Process Engineering, has helped to solve the problem of how nanotechnology can be used industrially, taking into account health, safety and environmental protection. A team from the company has developed a method that makes it possible to bind suspended ...
