Celest Ybarra's curator insight, March 30, 5:42 PM

Title: Ozone-Friendly Refrigerants

Author: DuPont ASEAN

Main Idea: To have ozone friendly refrigerators so that the depletion of the ozone layer doesn't disappear completely.

Summary:

1) Scientists are trying to save the ozone by inventing ozone refrigerators that provides cooling

2) They also want to phase out HCFC's before the year 2020

3) The invention was designed to be better than the R-22 

Opinion: Though factual, the author hopes that DuPont programs will help the environment

Question: Will this product be open to the public at an affordable price? Is his invention also environmental friendly?

Is this article important to science?: Yes, because it can help us save the ozone instead of destroying it.

Makeup artist Jody Formica used brushes made with DuPont Natrafil® to create this blended look. She said, “To create a multicolored eye makeup effect, it is essential to place each color exactly where needed, without dropping any product. Natrafil® filaments make powders less volatile; there is no unwanted product falling off under the eye which saves a lot of time as I don’t need to clean any excess."
