  Professor James Clark, of the Green Chemistry Center of Excellence at the University of York, announced a new technology recently that could help eliminate waste from the food supply chain. This waste will be converted, with the help of microwaves, into useful biomass derived chemicals, materials, and fuels. The project dubbed the Orange Peel Exploitation Company (OPEC) is a partnership among researchers at the University of York, The University of Sao Pablo, Brazil, and the...

Baylor researchers develop new method for Europe´s REACH regulation Baylor University environmental researchers have proposed in a new study a different approach to predict the environmental safety of chemicals by using data from other similar chemicals. For many chemicals in use every day, scientists do not have enough information to understand all of the effects on the environment and human health. In response to this, the European Union enacted the REACH regulation, which places...

Word of the Day
tesla
  • The unit of magnetic flux density in the International System of Units, equal to the magnitude of the magnetic field vector necessary to produce a force of one newton on a charge of one coulomb moving perpendicular to the direction of the magnetic field vector with a velocity of one meter per second. It is equivalent to one weber per square meter.
This word is named for Nikola Tesla, the inventor, engineer, and futurist.
