As it has for several years, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) once again paid tribute early this summer to companies, as well as to an individual, for contributions to pollution prevention, via its Presidential Green Chemistry Challenge Awards competition. It is no surprise that once again, chemical process companies are well represented among the winners. The details of the achievements of...

  A stronger, more stable exhaust duct is offered U-Lok 440 (photo) is an ultra-flexible, silicone fiberglass exhaust-extraction duct that can be used for air or fume extraction. The tubing’s patented Mechanical Lock Construction provides “superior” tear and tensile strength, which eliminates wire movements found in traditional single-ply duct, says the firm. The U-Lok 440 is rated...

Although chemically identical to vegetation-derived cellulose, bacterial cellulose (BC) has a different tertiary structure, which imparts a number of unique — and commercially important — properties. For example, BC is nontoxic and biocompatible, and has a large water-holding capacity, which makes it suitable for dressing wounds in medicine. Other possible uses are cleaning environmental...

Large tracts of land that have been used for military training, especially in the U.S., are contaminated with RDX— a widely used explosive that is both toxic and carcinogenic. Although bacteria have been isolated that can biodegrade the RDX, the degredation rates are too slow, allowing the RDX to leatch...
