Haydale of South Wales, with a patent pending proprietary scalable plasma process to functionalise graphene and other nanomaterials using a dry, low-energy process, avoiding the need to use potentially harsh 'wet' chemicals or acids has announced a major consulting agreement with InVentures Group to accelerate the commercial application of its patent for plasma functionalisation technology in graphene, carbon nanotubes and other high performance nanomaterial systems.xv
The UK Government’s £230 million loan to Ineos, for the Grangemouth Refinery to build a gigantic ethane storage tank to support its planned import of cheap shale gas from America, is being seen as good news for the Grangemouth workforce.
For close to 180 years, Charles Darwin’s library aboard the ship "HMS Beagle" during his landmark expedition around the world in the 1830s has remained lost having been dispersed at the end of the voyage.
