How Thermal Analysis can unlock Nature’s Secrets

Amorphous calcium carbonate (ACC) is the amorphous and least stable polymorph of calcium carbonate. ACC is extremely unstable under normal conditions and is found for example in sea urchins and corals. The influence of ACC on the outstanding macromechanical properties of Echinoderm calcite is unknown. In this paper Thermal Analysis methods were used to investigate the thermal stability of sea urchin spines.

Recycling Carpets Turns into a Raw Material Opportunity

Billions of pounds of carpets are generated annually worldwide. A large percentage of which ends up in landfills is problematic because nylon is non-biodegradable.

Limitations in landfill capacity and the environmental impact of disposing of carpet waste in this manner have made recovering nylon from carpet waste an increasingly important enterprise.
