GUIDE TO VEGAN & ECO-FRIENDLY FEMININE PRODUCTS BRANDS

This guide was developed as a peek into the histories and philosophies of brands at the forefront of femtech for period care and also as an exploration of the wide-ranging advocacy work all these companies pursue. As I started research for this guide, I had high hopes to discover a handful of quality vegan-friendly period care products and brands. I had no idea the journey that was ahead! As I delved into the research, what I learned is that there is an incredibly rich and broad spectrum of brands in the period product space now, nothing close to what existed when I first started using related products in the early ’90s. What I learned is that the current marketplace for eco-menstrual products is a sector of femtech that has seen extraordinary innovation in the past couple of decades, with sustainability and environment as forefront concerns in product development as well as critical issues of menstrual advocacy and ecological integrity of the product.  In this growing space of innovative feminine hygiene products, it is quite often female founders leading the way, with personal experiences lending essential insight to product development, design as well as increased needs for ...

The first of its kind in the world, AP&T’s scalable production line for hot forming of

The first of its kind in the world, AP&T’s scalable production line for hot forming of high-strength aluminum offers new methods for manufacturing lightweight car body components. To meet increasingly strict government requirements regarding CO2 emissions, the automotive industry has been working for many years to reduce fuel consumption of newly manufactured vehicles by reducing their weight. New materials, designs, and manufacturing methods have made possible lighter parts and components. Press hardening of sheet steel has been vital to the progress made so far. As this technology continues to improve, other materials and material combinations have been developed, such as high-strength aluminum. While considerably lighter than steel, this material has entailed high costs and presented some forming challenges. In 2013 AP&T began to investigate the development of a new process for hot forming of complexly designed parts made of high-strength aluminum. During the following three-year period, the company worked with customers, universities, and suppliers on testing the material, production processes, and equipment. The result in 2016 was an initial prototype line and a num...

Activated Alumina Market 2026 Ongoing Trends and Key Players BASF SE Bee Chems Garg Chemical Company , Sorbead India

Activated Alumina is a dry, granular chemical substance produced by de-hydroxylation i.e., the removal of hydroxyl group ion from aluminum hydroxide. The substance is a form of common alumina and its high porosity has led to its frequent usage in filtration and adsorption purposes. Adsorption is a chemical process where substances adhere to the surface of other substances but do not get absorbed into it. Activated alumina is used as a desiccant (adsorbent), catalyst and support for the catalyst. The substance is primarily for the filtration of water to remove harmful fluorides and arsenic particulates from it. It is also used to recover sulfur from industrial process usually in petrol refineries and steel plants. Activated alumina is also widely used to dehumidify PET substances, as a catalyst in the production of hydrogen peroxide, as a filtering agent in various lubricants and various other industrial applications. The increase in usage of activated alumina for various domestic and industrial application has attributed to the growth of the substance and is forecast to expand at a healthy growth rate during 2016-2026. One of the major driver for activated alumina market in the ...

Get your duck face ready, June 21 is National Selfie Day

(CNN/Gray News) – Time to pull out your best duck face, pouty look or smize (smile with your eyes, for those not in the know). It’s a day for you to admire your favorite self-portrait. Which, really, is just about everyday with social media and smart phones. According to the Library of Congress, a photographer named Robert Cornelius took the first selfie in 1839. Cornelius had to remove the lens cap, run in front of the camera, sit still for a minute, then cover the lens up again. The technology was so new, Cornelius was using what is called a daguerreotype where an image what exposed to a polished copper plate – not even film. 2m Light Stand That word was not added to the Oxford Dictionary until 2013, and that same year, was named Oxford’s world of the year. – Hold the camera up – well, smart phone – above your head and look up at it.– Look for the best light. Side light from windows works, and don’t look directly into the sun.– Watch your backgrounds, you don’t want a lamp sticking out of the back of your head.– Sure, use filters if you want, but don’t OVER use them.– Play around with angles, figure out which works best fo...

Long ago, when I wanted a plywood sheet, I would go to the local big box

Long ago, when I wanted a plywood sheet, I would go to the local big box hardware store and buy whatever was at the center of the optimization curve for  cheapest and nicest looking. I would inevitably suffer with ultra-thin veneers on the top, ugly cores, unfinishable edges, warping, voids, and other maladies of the common plywood. One day I said enough is enough and bothered the salesman at my local lumber supply until he showed me one that wasn’t awful. Baltic birch differs from other plywoods in a few ways. Regular plywood is usually made locally from the cheapest possible core wood in alternating grain layers laminated together with a hardwood veneer on the top. There are interior and exterior grades. The exterior grades are usually made with a different glue, but don’t necessarily denote a higher quality or stability. Some of the glues used can be toxic. Wear a respirator. In normal plywood, the ATSM or BB standards only apply to the face veneers used to finish the product. The core can be of whatever quality is convenient for the manufacturer. True Baltic Birch is made in the Baltic Region with the biggest producers being Russia and Finland. Outside of the US it is someti...
