Ironhorse,

Great parallel.  Burning "stuff" is a quick solution used too many places in the world.  When the fire is out, the stuff is gone and out of mind.  But what is out of mind oftimes becomes the stuff in the lungs, the bloodstream, the organs and cells.

As for the scented candles, hopefully the proliferation of LED "fake" candles on the store shelves this year lead to fewer scented candles that must be endured.  A Christmas wish for 2013 and beyond?

My point is 3 fold:

"Burning stuff" is how nature does it.  [I've been presented lake sediment data showing prehistoric fire events were quite periodic (every 25-27 years)]

It doesn't go away.

We evolved eating and breathing it.  (we didn't evolve eating grains)

At the JEC Europe 2015 composites show in Paris last month, makers of composite materials, software, and process equipment showed off their latest innovations. This year's show saw some announcements related to automotive applications, but many of the improvements came in the world of aerospace.
The DuPont-sponsored Plastics Industry Trends survey shows engineers want improved performance in a broad range of plastics and better recycling technology. These concerns top even processing enhancements that improve productivity.
Plastics leader SABIC recently announced a global initiative to help its customers take advantage of additive manufacturing (AM) and also advance 3D printing (3DP) technologies in several application areas. The company's plans go way beyond materials, and also include design, processing, and part performance.
A theme that was reflected in several ways at NPE 2015 was the use of 3D printing to assist in, or improve on, injection molding, as well as improvements in 3D printing materials and processes that are making better functional prototypes and end-use parts.
In this second materials slideshow from NPE2015, we've got some plastics that vendors were showcasing, including products made with them, and others that were brand-new introductions at the show.
