Comments Off on KAIST Develops a Metal-Graphene Composite Material Hundreds of Times Stronger Than Pure Metals

Graphene  © AlexanderAlUS/ CORE Materials Researchers from the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) have developed a new metamaterial that is proven to be hundreds of times stronger than pure metals . To maximize the potential increase in strength provided by the use of graphene, the KAIST team created a multi-layered structure, alternating layers of graphene and metal—this composite  nanomaterial  consists of graphene inserted into copper and nickel. The resulting metal-graphene multilayer composite material is the first of its kind, and the team’s research was published in the science journal, Nature Communications  in July of 2013.

INFOGRAPHIC: Shingle Recycling – Turn Your Roof Into a Road!

Comments Off on INFOGRAPHIC: Shingle Recycling – Turn Your Roof Into a Road!

Shingle recycling is a huge opportunity that is evolving way to slowly. About 22 billion pounds of roofing waste is removed from U.S. homes each year, the majority of which is asphalt shingles. Almost all of this roofing waste ends up in landfills. While shingle recycling has become available in more and more locations over the last few years, the great majority of homeowners and roofers do not have access to a shingle recycling facility near their community. Shingle recycling is such a great opportunity because recycled shingles contain asphalt that can be used in paving asphalt roads. Hot mix asphalt (HMA) producers purchase the recycled shingles to enhance their paving mixtures and create better roads. Check out Hometown Roofing Contractors ‘  Shingle Recycling  infographic below to learn more about the size of the problem — and the size of the opportunity!

Comments Off on pool/shmool.

If you own a swimming pool, you’re lucky, but if you’re finding that you’re not making use of it, consider an early shut down.  In addition to the hundreds or thousands of gallons of water a pool uses (evaporating at an average 3” per day), there are harsh chemicals used to keep pools safe from germs and bacteria and any pool owner will tell you, heating those suckers ain’t cheap.  Benching your pool will not only save you money, but will reduce the strain on important resources, cut back on waste-water toxins and reduce your carbon footprint. Now that’s refreshing! Photo by Jesse Hove
