Researchers have developed a fast, cost-effective way to convert discarded car tires into ultra-light aerogels with a wide range of applications. About 1 billion rubber tires are produced annually in the world, which are very durable and practically non-biodegradable. At the same time, 49% of them are burned to generate energy, about 11% end up in landfills and only 40% are recycled with minimal profit. In the process of their incineration and burial, toxic substances are released that pollute the environment.. Scientists from the National University of Singapore recently proposed an environmentally friendly way of recycling waste rubber into expensive aerogels. To do this, first, the used car tires were crushed into thinner fibers, which were soaked for a short time.. in water with the addition of a small amount of chemical solvents. The mixture was dispersed using a stirrer for 20 minutes, and then a homogeneous suspension gel by freezing…

Anti-Corrosion Coating Chinese researchers have developed a versatile graphene-based anti-corrosion coating that provides better, cheaper protection. How corrosion inhibitors protect metal: synthesis in the lab and testing The problem of corrosion is very relevant for infrastructure, buildings and equipment in areas with a harsh climate. For example, in the coastal zone and on the islands of the China Sea, concrete structures begin to collapse in less than 3 years, metal equipment ceases to function after about a year, artillery structures fail three months later due to rust. In 2014 The Celestial Empire has spent $ 300 billion just to fight corrosion of fighters, ships, missiles and other weapons.. Therefore, scientists from the city of Ningboali are effective coverage, which is cheaper than the options available on the market with an average cost of 5.5 to 8.7 dollars per 1 kg. At the moment, a military research institute in Shanghai is conducting its…
