bob from maine, thanks for your comments on the danger to aquifers. I live in a county with compromised aquifers: so far, no chemical poisoning, but definitely, ones with levels too low to sustain a growing population, and perhaps even to sustain a non-growing one. (Hence the discussions here about desalination). The point is, once we've messed them up, fahgeddaboutit for the future. I don't see how risking one's water supply is an "acceptable risk," in any sense of the term.

In this slideshow's latest crop of new bio-based and renewable plastics and methods for making them, some materials can even be completely recycled several times without loss of original properties.
It's probably too late to buy one, but some lucky people will soon be the owners of only 50 electric motorcycles made entirely with 3D printing from a super-lightweight aluminum alloy.
Oak Ridge National Laboratory has developed a surface preparation method to improve joining carbon composites with aluminum, with potentially far-reaching ramifications for high-volume industrial applications.
Our latest crop includes ABS alternatives, tougher PLAs, flexible plastics including a flexible nylon, polymers with better heat resistance, and the first biocompatible resin for desktop 3D printing.
New and improved fastening methods are helping engineers join plastics, composites, and thinner metal sheets in a variety of product assemblies.
