Plastic Adopton Increasing with New EU Car Emissio

Plastic Adopton Increasing with New EU Car Emissio | Ecomass Technologies | Scoop.it
A recent story suggesting that diesel engines will all but disappear from a majority of European vehicles due to the increasing emission standards became news all through the month of September. The future of diesel cars in Europe has always always been under scrutiny ever since the new EU-emission targets were released, and this allows high density materials to make their move.

Changing Concepts of the Big Game Bullet

Changing Concepts of the Big Game Bullet | Ecomass Technologies | Scoop.it
Tipped bullets were introduced in the eighties with Nosler’s Ballistic Tip. The tip is driven into the bullet upon impact, allowing for quick expansion. However, the absence of design features often meant that the bullet wasn’t the most beautiful thing to look at once recovered.

Benefits of Using Frangible Projectiles

Benefits of Using Frangible Projectiles | Ecomass Technologies | Scoop.it
The biggest benefit of using frangible projectiles is that they do not contain lead. This helps you stay away from lead poisoning and save yourself as well as those around you from the dangers of lead exposure. Just think of how damaging the Flint fiasco turned out to be. Wouldn’t you want to do everything possible to stay as far away from that ingredient as possible? The lack of lead also makes this bullet a great option for hunting.

Radiation Shielding Protect Astronauts in Deep Space

Radiation Shielding Protect Astronauts in Deep Space | Ecomass Technologies | Scoop.it
Radiation poisoning and the lack of radiation shielding has been one of the biggest concerns facing deep space astronauts for decades. Proper measures that helped protect our modern-day explorers in deep space were amiss, that is until an EU-funded project, the SR2S (Space Radiation Superconducting Shield) project, actually came up with a tangible solution.

What are Lead Protective Garments?

Lead aprons are conventionally made using lead powder which was bonded in thick rubber to allow the apron to be long-lasting and comfortable. The radiation protection offered by these lead garments was 0.50mm lead which would transmit about 2% of a fluoroscopic x-ray beam. Sounds great until you realize that the garments are actually made of lead!!
