Oil and Gas Outlook 2019: Output Cuts to Correct Market

2018 proved to be a volatile year for the energy sector, especially oil. Despite many predicting that the year would offer price stability for the space, the opposite proved true. The oil market saw wild price fluctuations this year. Brent crude started strong in January, trading at US$66.87 a barrel, then soared to a yearly high of US$84.16 in October before dropping to its 2018 low of US$59.04 in November. The year played out very much the same for WTI crude, which started the year with upward movement from its January price of US$60.42 a barrel. In October, it hit…


Two Startups Seek to Grow Interest in Foam Glass Fill

Two companies in the Northeast are seeking to expand the market for a lightweight, insulating fill made from recycled glass that can take the place of stone aggregate in several residential applications, including subslab fill. AeroAggregates of Eddystone, Pennsylvania, announced this week it has  opened a second kiln as it increases production of the foamed glass aggregate it now sells in parts of the Northeast. The material is made of post-consumer recycled glass and a foaming agent and, according to the manufacturer, can act as both a drainage and insulating layer. In Vermont, Burlington-based Glavel is currently importing foamed glass…

Named Polli-Brick, this colorless module made from old plastic bottles can be interlocked with others to build an incredible array of structures — such as the nine-story EcoARK pavilion, a sleek exhibition hall located a few blocks away in the heart of Taiwan’s capital. These bricks are among countless products that Huang and his team at the international upcycling company Miniwiz derive from post-consumer waste, turning objects like aluminum cans, shoe soles, and cigarette butts into building…


What Is ‘Green’ Dry Cleaning?

The winter holidays are a busy time for many businesses, including retail stores, grocers, liquor stores — and dry cleaners. People pull out special-occasion clothes made of silk, satin, or other fabrics that don’t launder well in soap and water. Then there are all those specialty items, from stained tablecloths to ugly holiday sweaters. Few consumers know much about what happens to their goods once they hand them across the dry cleaner’s counter. In fact, dry cleaning isn’t dry at all. Most facilities soak items in a chemical called perchloroethylene, or perc for short. Exposure to perc is associated with a…
