From Smelly to Smiley
Bio-Based
Friday, 18 November 2016 22:23
Helsinki, Finland, November 2016—VTT, a Finnish research center, has developed a solution for converting small sources of methane-rich biogas into raw materials for animal feed or bioplastic on farms, landfills and wastewater treatment plants. The emission-reducing solution is based on ability of a certain kind of bacteria to grow on methane in gas fermentors.

Methane-rich biogas is generated worldwide on farms, landfills and wastewater treatment plants in anaerobic digestion of biological material. Until now, the processing of such gas into biomethane has only been viable on large biogas-producing sites; small biogas sources such as farms have remained largely unexploited.

Glendale, California, October 2016—Ghosts and goblins notwithstanding, there is nothing like candy to hold together (and make even more fun) a special event like Halloween. And Nestlé’s Butterfinger line is making its play to ensure everyone has a shot at the new goodness they’ve come up with.

They are introducing a devilishly delicious treat this fall with called Peanut Butter Cups Molded Skulls, a #BolderThanBoo addition to the candy aisle this Halloween season. Now hitting store shelves for the first time, the BUTTERFINGER® Peanut Butter Cups Skulls take on the terror-ific new molded skull shape, with a “crispety, crunchety” burst of bold peanut buttery flavor and smooth milk chocolate coating. (Note: “crispety” and “crunchety” may not be actual English words, but in this case, they’ll do nicely.)

Health
Monday, 26 September 2016 20:54
Scottsdale, Arizona, September 2016—Most of those interested and involved in the enrichment afforded them from adopting a healthy lifestyle realize that hydration is a key ingredient in that equation. But when considering all the bottled waters available in today’s marketplace, two problems emerge: They’re either too expensive, contain bells and whistles that cannot be substantiated, or adopt a marketing approach based in part on the importance of pH levels.

Cost is a no-brainer, but the bells & whistles concern is another matter. The Alkaline Water Company (AWC), was, if we understood their pitch correctly, brought into being the importance not only of hydration, but of drinking water that has a ‘balanced’ pH. Their product is called Alkaline88—a lifestyle creation that reportedly delivers a refreshing and economical way to achieve maximum hydration while maintaining and benefitting from a balanced pH.

Jefferson City, Missouri, September 2016—And those words are: Engineered Composites.

As identified, an engineered composite is a combination of polymers and resins, mixed with marble or granite chips and a recyclable such as glass, and created in a mold made special for the job involved, which soon becomes part of someone’s kitchen or bath.

Exceptionally beautiful, almost impervious to damage—and thus destined for a long life, engineered composites bring enormous possibilities to the table (maybe even the table itself!) Plus, it carries with it a statement about the environment and about the home or office owner who is having it made.
