  • Alicat™ Scientific adds PROFINET industrial communications protocols to its flow and pressure control instruments

    Alicat Scientific, of Tucson, Arizona, announces that it has added PROFINET™ to its offerings of industrial protocols for Alicat mass flow controllers, pressure controllers, mass flow meters, and pressure transducers. Through PLCs, manufacturers and industrial processes can control activities and collect data faster than humanly possible, from Alicat devices with industrial protocols. Part of the […]

  • Orange and white hydrogen

    Merging carbon sequestration, geothermal heating, and hydrogen production with orange and white hydrogen As a result of the deep carbon cycle, the equilibrium of atmospheric and subsurface CO2 results in 99.99% of all carbon on Earth being located underground where it does not contribute to global warming. Nonetheless, the 0.01% of Earth’s carbon located in […]

  • The hydrogen future

    The hydrogen future Hydrogen is the most abundant element in the universe. When compared to fossil fuels as an energy source, hydrogen energy generation technologies are much safer for the environment as many only produce pure water as an emission. As a result of hydrogen’s potential to mitigate the effects of global warming as a […]

  • SO2 in wine

    SO2 in wine Sulfites, sometimes called sulphates, are important naturally occurring compounds with applications as disinfectants, refrigerants, and lab solvents and reagents. Sulfur dioxide, or SO2, is a commonly used sulfite which is a colorless, pungent, toxic, corrosive gas at standard temperatures and pressures. It is primarily synthesized by volcanic activity, but also from burning […]

  • Environmental impact of lab-grown diamonds 

    Environmental impact of lab-grown diamonds In addition to being faster and cheaper to manufacture, lab-grown diamonds are more environmentally and socially responsible than mined diamonds. The two most popular methods for growing diamonds are high-pressure, high-temperature (HPHT) and chemical vapor deposition (CVD). In particular, a subset of CVD, microwave plasma CVD (MPCVD) is growing in […]

  • Indoor hydroponic systems

    Indoor hydroponic systems In recent years, agricultural practices have rapidly developed due to improvements in technology, leading to better disease resistance, greater nutrient density, and overall higher yields for various crops. One of the most important agricultural developments driving such increased productivity has been recent widespread popularization and commercialization of indoor hydroponic farming systems. The […]

  • Slot-die coating

    Slot-die coating Slot-die coating is a reliable and versatile method of applying layers sized from 10 nm to 2 microns onto substrates, over 8x thinner than the diameter of a human hair. Relative to other techniques, slot-die coating offers greater consistency and precision at these tiny thicknesses and therefore is common to industries such as […]
