On the trail of chemical elements: from raw material to pollutant

Raw materials are the engine of our modern industrial society. But they can also become pollutants after being processed in everyday products. Both the extraction of raw materials and environmental protection require reliable chemical data. This was the central theme of the special colloquium on 25 April 2016 organised by the Bundesanstalt für Materialforschung und -prüfung (BAM) and the International Association of Geoanalysts (IAG).

Wrinkle-free ceramics from the 3D printer

Using their new 3D powder printing technique, scientists of the Bundesanstalt für Materialforschung und -prüfung (BAM) can produce fine ceramic structures without sharp edges and pores. The ceramic structures produced in this way have a higher stability than structures produced by comparable additive methods: missing edges reduce fracture tendency and nonexistent pores increase the density of the component. The method is very suitable for industrial application: it is simple, fast, inexpensive and uses non-hazardous raw materials from the cosmetics industry.
