Clean cooking with stainless steel
New Materials Thumb
International Stainless Steel Forum (ISSF) : 24 October, 2014  (Technical Article)
Chronic exposure to smoke from traditional cooking practices is one of the world’s biggest – but least well-known – killers. This new brochure from ISSF explains why stainless steel is part of the solution for this problem. It highlights the health and environmental effects and then introduces different kind of alternative stoves that can be used like forced air stoves or solar cooking stoves.

Low flammability structural composites and adhesives for aerospace interiors
New Materials Thumb
Huntsman Advanced Materials (Basel) : 24 October, 2014  (Technical Article)
The use of composite materials on aircraft interiors is emerging from the shadow of composite airframe applications. With fuel prices currently accounting for over a third of operating costs, it is now widely recognised that interior composites can deliver significant cost savings in this area. Composites currently account for just 20 to 25% of the total interior weight of an aircraft and there is huge potential for this to increase to as much as 30-40% within the next ten years.

Thermo-tolerant yeast can provide more climate-smart ethanol
New Materials Thumb
Chalmers University of Technology : 21 October, 2014  (Technical Article)
With a simple mutation, yeast can grow in higher than normal temperatures. Researchers at Chalmers University of Technology demonstrate findings which may result in ethanol being more effectively manufactured for vehicle fuel, as well as increase the possibility of using residual waste as a raw material.

Expanding carbon nanotube manufacturing capacity
New Materials Thumb
Tortech Nano Fibers (Plasan Sasa) : 21 October, 2014  (Company News)
Tortech Nanofibres, a subsidiary of Plasan based in Israel, is installing additional capacity for the manufacture of its non-woven carbon nanotube (CNT) sheet at its manufacturing facility. This will more than triple output, once full commissioning is completed in the next few months and is seen as an important step towards a full scale industrial manufacturing capability.

Thorium to replace uranium for improved nuclear design?
New Materials Thumb
Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) : 21 October, 2014  (Company News)
An international project is developing a radical new type of nuclear power station that is safer, more cost-effective, compact, quicker and less disruptive to build than any previously constructed. Specifically, it is exploring whether the element thorium could help to meet the new design’s fuel needs. As well as being three to four times more abundant than uranium, thorium could potentially produce electricity more fuel efficiently and therefore more cheaply.
