Plastics Triumvirate

Plastics Triumvirate To present a unified voice for the industry, the Society of the Plastics Industry (SPI), the plastics division of the American Chemical Council, and the Canadian Plastics Industry Association have joined forces. Their aim is to represent North American plastics internationally. The new group, the North American Plastics Alliance, has outlined four primary initiatives: pellet containment, energy recovery, enhancement of the public's image of plastic, and advocacy. In a first step, SPI licensed their Operation Clean Sweep resin handling program to Canada; the program outlines ways to minimize pellet loss in transit and in manufacturing processes to reduce marine debris.

The Dream of Flight

The Dream of Flight Germany's Festo replicated the mystery of flight with Smartbird, a lightweight robot made with a polymer foam. From afar, it's difficult to discern from the real thing — actual seagulls were captured on video checking it out. Festo says the bird is a major step in developing ways to maximize development of hybrid drive technology.

Rebuilding Biomaterial

Rebuilding Biomaterial A new biomaterial developed at Johns Hopkins University can reconstruct deformities and lives. The implant material rebuilds soft tissue structures, like injured cheeks which can be highly disfiguring but difficult to recreate. A mixture of hyaluronic acid and polyethylene glycol creates an injectible that can be molded under the skin, massaged into shape, then solidified with LED exposure.

Polymers for Eternity

Polymers for Eternity How do ex-NASA employees make a living when times are tough? They create a new product that's slightly creepy, but might have potential. They're using multi-dimension laser scanners to fabricate 3D polymer profiles of the deceased for their headstones. The technology will be licensed to funeral homes this fall.

To Shanghai for TDI

To Shanghai for TDI BayerMaterialScience opened its 250,000 tpy Shanghai, China, TDI plant to produce low-cost PU through their new gas-phase phosgenation process. Toluene diamine and phosgene are heated and brought together in a proprietary reactor in a scheme that reduces reaction time to 20 seconds. Solvent consumption drops by 80% and energy use falls by 40% or more.

Polymer: Light and Dark

Polymer: Light and Dark A new sunglass technology isn't just fashionable, it could mean life or death for soldiers who exit dark caves into bright sunlight and must physically change out the lenses in their goggles. A new electrochromic device could eliminate that need. Sandwiched between polymer layers is an electrolyte which changes immediately when exposed to light.

Potable and Portable Electronics

Potable and Portable Electronics Stanford University developed nanowire electronics that can be applied to any surface without regard to its shape or material. A silicon wafer is coated with a thin nickel layer before the circuitry is fabricated, and an ultrathin polymer layer is added for insulation and support. When wet, the hydrophilic materials separate, creating a circuit that can be reused.

Franken-cycle

Franken-cycle Injection molded using only recycled plastics, the Frii bicycle from an Israeli design student might not be the prettiest on the road, but it might be the most environmentally-friendly. The designer hopes the snap-together construction and simplistic style will make the city-cycler easy to manufacture locally. But you might want to consider a softer seat.

Plastic Paving the Way

Plastic Paving the Way One year after banning polythene, a local government agency in India plans to buy plastic waste from consumers in order to use it to pave roads. Their plan is to incorporate waste plastic in 250 km of roads in six areas of Himachal Pradesh. Plastic-enhanced pavement has already been tested in several parts of India and shows promising results.

Waiting for Waste

Waiting for Waste While the nearby recycling plant barely hits 30% capacity, landfills in Dubai are bulging with plastic water bottles. A waste management study shows that although the UAE has one of the highest per-capita consumption rates of bottled water, recycling rates are a mere 1/6 of the total purchased. Plans are underway for roadside collection bins and residential recycling programs to get those plants running at full capacity.

Tactile Enhancement

Tactile Enhancement Sure your smartphone keeps you connected with everyone, everywhere, all the time, but now that connection can be much more touchy-feely. ViviTouch is a new EAP (electroactive polymer) technology that promises to change the way you feel about your phone because it changes the way your phone physically feels to your fingers.

About This Month's Topic

About This Month's Topic Unnatural Resource?

Even as plastic bag bans circle the globe, plastic consumption continues to rise. It might be time to view plastic waste as a renewable resource, but who should be in charge of managing it?
