Haltermann Carless to become the world's largest Cyclopentane producer

Cyclopentane makes important contribution to energy efficiency


With the completion of the new hydrogenation plant at the German site in Speyer, Haltermann Carless will become the largest Cyclopentane producer worldwide. New capacity volumes will be available to the market from Q1 2022. Haltermann Carless, a company of HCS Group and a leading supplier of ...


Squeeze to remove heat

Elastocaloric materials enable more efficient, 'green' cooling


Move over, vapor compression cooling technology. Emerging "elastocaloric" refrigeration is potentially much more efficient and, unlike vapor compression, relies on environmentally-friendly refrigerants. In elastocaloric materials a change in mechanical stress can create a change in temperature.In ...


More dangerous chemicals in everyday life

Now experts warn against nanosilver


Endocrine disrupters are not the only worrying chemicals that ordinary consumers are exposed to in everyday life. Also nanoparticles of silver, found in e.g. dietary supplements, cosmetics and food packaging, now worry scientists. A new study from the University of Southern Denmark shows that ...


Rattling ions limit heat flow in materials used to reduce carbon emissions


A new study published in the journal Nature Materials has found a way to suppress the thermal conductivity in sodium cobaltate so that it can be used to harvest waste energy. Led by scientists at Royal Holloway University, the team conducted a series of experiments on crystals of sodium cobaltate ...
