Soil Microbes Break Down Plastics

Thin polyethylene (PE) mulch films are used in farming in many countries, where they cause massive soil contamination. Researchers at ETH Zurich and the Swiss Federal Institute of Aquatic Science and Technology (Eawag) have now shown that there are alternatives, i.e. films made of the plastic PBAT (polybutylene adipate-co-terephthalate) that are biodegradable in the soil.

New pigment inks for extreme temperatures

In some branches of industry, processes take place at temperatures of several hundred degrees Celsius. Only very few inks for component-marking with ink jet printers can withstand these extreme temperatures. With this in mind, marking and coding specialist Paul Leibinger GmbH & Co. KG from Tuttlingen has introduced a pigment ink to the market.
