A crude awakening: why should we care about contaminated copepods?
Who hasn’t seen the oil covered seabirds and big-eyed otters in the news after massive oil spills like Exxon Valdez and Deepwater Horizon? The images represent how oil production can impact the marine environment and are visually powerful.
Role of silicon carbide (SiC) in silicon/ferro silicon (Si/FeSi) process
The demand for high quality silicon is rapidly increasing in the solar cell industry and for production of photovoltaic applications. To meet this demand, the industrial production of silicon must be made more effective.
