    Science Research Unit, suggested contacting ARS supervisory chemist Sevim Erhan. Her research specialty is turning edible vegetable oils into new, valued-added industrial products, such as biodegradable printing inks, lubricants, greases, and specialty additives. Soybeans. (K9006-1). Erhan recalls Reich
  • From Lubricants to Packaging Materials: ARS Scientists Just Say "No " to Petroleum
    At the NCAUR lab in Peoria, chemist Sevim Erhan (now center director at the Eastern Regional Research Center in Wyndmoor, Pennsylvania) formulates a biodegradable lubricant using an ARS patented biobased antiwear additive. Few sounds are more nerve-wracking than the scraping of metal on metal

  • Bearing maintenance tools enhance sustainability with rotating equipment
    . Green lubricants. Lubricant formulation represents another sustainability issue. A growing number of biodegradable "green " greases are available for applications if environmental contamination is a concern. One such lubricant, a low-toxicity, synthetic ester oil-based grease, is designed
  • Study: Carbon Dioxide May Find New Use In Producing Medical Implants
    supercritical CO2 has long been developed as a means of extracting molecules, this work shows that it can be used in the opposite way, " said David Tomasko, associate professor of chemical engineering at Ohio State. For the next step in this research, the engineers will be working with biodegradable plastics
  • Leftover Straw Gets New Life
    over 300,000 tons of straw. And the state's wheat crop yields an estimated 400,000 tons of straw. Rice and wheat straw are good sources of cellulose. In turn, cellulose is the basis for strong, biodegradable fibers that can be used for manufacturing, according to Orts. His team is determining
  • Bootstrap Aircraft Restores F4U Corsair
    is non-toxic, non-hazardous and biodegradable prior to its being used. We also found that our used media proved to be non-hazardous after cleaning the engine, as the measured parts per million of contaminants were below established limits. The engine was painted using the exact colors from the WWII era
  • The Role of Phosphates in Cleaners (.pdf)
    cleaners. Polycarboxylates are non-biodegradable long. chain petrochemicals that are used to reduce. build up of calcium and magnesium salts which. result from poor ion removal properties of. zeolites. In addition, these raw materials have. been found to be difficult to remove in waste. treatment
