The oil industry apparently understands future fuels will be greener. Oil producer TexCom Inc. has broken ground on a major biodiesel production plant near Houston. Since Houston is situated at the center of U.S. fuel production and distribution, it makes sense that mass production of bio fuels would take place in the center of the oil industry. TexCom’s biodiesel plant is being built at the company’s LLC plant in Seabrook, TX.
The facility will store petroleum diesel and will be equipped to provide fuel distribution with biodiesel/petroleum blends such as B2, B5 and B20, as well as pure biodiesel. By the time the plant is fully online, it will be equipped to produce 35 million gallons of B100 biodiesel annually.
The 3D printing revolution seems to have a knack for quickly moving technology ahead by way of collaborative effort and even a little friendly competition -- all of course in the name of scientific advancement.
Advantech has launched a new series of motion-control I/O modules to meet the increased demands that come with more distributed industrial systems that require control of a growing number of axes and devices.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
