    A new catalytic process is able to convert what was once considered biomass waste into lucrative chemical products that can be used in fragrances, flavorings or to create high-octane fuel for racecars and jets. A team of researchers has developed a process that uses a chemical catalyst and heat to spur reactions that convert lignin into valuable chemical commodities.

    Here are a few Christmas ornaments I made from old recycled Christmas cards. I save Christmas cards and those sample cards you get in the mail. I cut out to shapes and glue them together. You can either make them bigger for decorating on a tree or package. You can also make smaller ones that can be used as gift tags. For more details on the process you can read my original craft post on Recycling Christmas Cards into Ornaments. Here is one before picture shown below with the holes punched around the card edges. As you can see you just hole punch around the edges evenly. Then with a small…

  • National model of restoration: Nine Mile Run

    17 Dec 2014 | 10:14 am
    A study by a hydrologist shows that one of the largest urban-stream restorations in the United States has led to the recovery of fish and, more importantly, a groundswell of local support. Nine Mile Run, which is part of a watershed that drains 6.5 square miles of land, had been truly abused by urbanization and industrialization. Toxins leached into the creek from a slag heap left over from the steelmaking process, sewer lines discharged into the water, and so much of the waterway had been buried in culverts or diverted from its natural path that Nine Mile Run had become toxic. The…
  • Researchers' recipe: Cook farm waste into energy

    17 Dec 2014 | 8:36 am
    Researchers are studying how to make biofuels from farm waste, especially 'wet' waste, such as corn husks, tomato vines and manure, that is typically difficult to use. They have developed a fairly simple procedure, pressure cooking, to transport waste and produce energy from it. Cooking farm waste yields compact, easily transportable material that will not degrade and can be used in energy-producing plants, they say.

  • India’s New Recyclistas

    26 Nov 2014 | 6:41 pm
    The trouble with car tyres is that they weren’t designed to be used in handbags one could carry to a Page 3 event. No, they insist on being curved, not flat enough to use in one long satisfying strip, and besides, they have steel and other undesirable elements embedded in them. In that sense, used tyre tubes are much better – they are grooveless, plain rubber, and have absolutely no use to anyone in the world except the homeless who burn them for warmth in winter, and we all know that causes pollution. It’s far more responsible to wear them on your arm instead. Far more fashionable…

    A plastic pollution study published in the Public Library of Science on December 10, 2014 confirms what environmental activists have been saying all along: our oceans are full of plastic particles. Using surface trawling data and visual observations from 24 expeditions across the globe, which were conducted between 2007 and 2013, the study estimates that there are at least 5.25 trillion particles in our oceans weighing 268,940 tons. The paper also acknowledges the limitations of the study, which did not include an assessment of plastic particles that were on shorelines, on the sea floor, in…

The ads focus on the largest contributor of the referendum effort, South Carolina-based Novolex (also known as HilexPoly), and its owners, Chicago-based equity firm Wind Point Partners. The company has contributed $1.7 million to the campaign, approximately 70 percent of the $3.1 million in contributions to the effort so far; 98 percent of the contributions are from out of state, according…

    I received a nice email from Anne asking about making plarn (plastic bag yarn) from some old tablecloths she had. She asked “Have you ever used any of the fairly inexpensive plastic banquet length table covers to make plarn?” And if so how do you do it? Well I replied to Anne at the email she left but it came back undeliverable so I thought I’d take this opportunity and respond in a post explaining the process. Yes you can recycled those inexpensive plastic tablecloths into plarn. If the plastic is very thin, I would cut them about 1 to 1-1/2 inches wide depending on the…

    Though it was not working due to a missing part, as a yarn lover I couldn’t leave this vintage beauty on the curbs. Not for myself but to find a new home for it. Unfortunately I didn’t find a buyer so I posted it in a Facebook free pick-up group and soon found a young textile art student who said she knew people who could help her fixing the wheel. Her happy face at the door was the best payment after all.

    7 Sep 2014 | 1:31 am
    My creation ‘Fruit Bowl Elstar’ never sold on Etsy, even though it attracted thousands of visitors. Probably it was too expensive to ship overseas because of the weight. I used almost two complete trashed XL T-shirts to make it. But at the Dutch craft shows nobody even looked at it. As I feared the colours would only fade from bringing it outdoors over and over again I decided to keep it for myself and decorate my kitchen table with it.Because I’m not a fruit eater it now stores onions. Even though the colours don’t match as well as with the apples I’m quite happy with the…

But I was happy she approved of my rescue.So I listed it as ‘a pedestal or something like that’. Two days later a young artist picked it up who told me he was going to use it for one of his concrete sculptures. My friend was thrilled when I told her that.

Beau Boeckmann said parts of his inspiration for the design of the Galpin- Fisker Rocket Shelby RTR was from an old classic, the 1968 Shelby GT 500. A joint project for Galpin Auto Sports owner Boeckmann and automotive designer Henrik Fisker (previously of Aston Martin DB9 and BMW Z8 fame before his ill-fated Fisker Karma venture), the Galpin-Fisker Rocket’s superfluous panels apparently hide a Ford V-8 that’s…

    15 Oct 2014 | 8:33 am
    While automobile sales are still expected to continue to rise over the next few years, Auto analysts predict that the pace of growth will slow down further in 2015. U.S. auto sales are on pace to rise 5 percent in 2014 to 16.4 million — the best performance since 2006 — after rising by nearly 8 percent in 2013. The consensus is “cautious optimism” as production and sales will grow far faster in Asia, while Europe and South America face significant economic concerns.

    40 million is a lot of money for anything,  but recently this large sum of money was used to by a red 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO Berlinetta. It once involved in a fatal accident, has set the world record for a car sold at auction, going for $38.1 million at a sale in California, auction house Bonhams said. The price offered on Thursday by a bidder whose identity was not disclosed surpassed the $30 million (all figures U.S.) paid last year for a 1954 Mercedes Benz W196 race car, also sold by Bonhams, the auctioneers said in a press release. “We’ve always maintained that we would exceed the…

    3D printers make cool things like phone covers out of recycled plastic.. It’s pretty awesome that we live in a technological age where printers can make objects out of recycled plastic. We’ve heard of plastic bottles being turned into graduation gowns, hats and other clothing. But with new 3D printers, plastic water bottles help produce cell phone cases, jewelry, toys, action figures and all manner of accessories and decor. According to a CNN interview, the world’s first 3D-printed object was a tiny cup that could serve as an eye wash. Things have come a long way since then.

  • Has 30 years of lightweighting really saved the beverage industry EUR 6.5 billion?

    1 Dec 2014 | 12:32 am
    Nearly three decades ago a half litre PET bottle for still water weighed almost 30 grams. Today, following the release earlier this year of Sidel’s RightWeight™ bottle, the same bottle can weigh as little as 7.95 grams, while still being strong enough to perform across the supply chain, look good at the point of sale and give a great consumer experience. This equates to a reduction in raw material of over 70%, which of course then results in significant cost savings for beverage producers and bottlers worldwide. However, how much have producers saved all together worldwide thanks to this…

  • Managing Industrial Waste For A Good Cause: Saves Business Bills, Environment

    25 Nov 2014 | 1:08 am
    Image Credit: Eigus.com Ever wondered how fast our household garbage bin gets filled up much before we realize that it’s full to capacity. Sitting at home, US citizens produce more than 2 kg of waste per person per day. Now just imagine what will be the case with big industries and mass production companies who just cannot help with piles of waste due to their high-scale production. Municipal solid waste is a relatively small part of the overall waste generated in the United States. More than 95 per cent of the total solid waste generated in the United States each year is agricultural,…

Even though the word is being spread for waste management; there are people who have not started to make an effort as yet. This is actually bringing down the overall recyclable rate in the world, which is definitely an alarming fact for everyone. Moreover,…
