Wind turbine blades could someday be recycled into sweet treats

New turbine material by combining glass fibers with a plant-derived polymer and a synthetic one


Wind power is an increasingly popular form of renewable energy. However, when it’s time to replace the huge turbine blades that convert wind into electricity, disposal is a problem. Now, scientists report a new composite resin suitable for making these behemoths that could later be recycled into ...

Researchers use improved nanogenerators to power sensors based on zinc oxide nanowires

Self-powered nanosensors


By combining a new generation of piezoelectric nanogenerators with two types of nanowire sensors, researchers have created what are believed to be the first self-powered nanometer-scale sensing devices that draw power from the conversion of mechanical energy. The new devices can measure the pH of ...


Arkema: Proposed consolidation of the Methyl Methacrylate / Polymethyl Methacrylate activity


Arkema and its subsidiary Altuglas International presented to their respective Central Works Councils plans for the reorganization of both the Arkema Carling site and the Altuglas International PMMA Sheet business. Arkema produces methyl methacrylate (MMA) at its European sites of Carling ...
