Superior Industries, Inc., a US-based manufacturer and global supplier of bulk material processing and handling systems, recently announced expansion plans at its facility in Prescott Valley, Arizona. The company says it will add a fourth production line for manufacturing its equipment used in the construction aggregates and metals mining industries around the world.
H.C. Starck Tungsten Powders is now marketing special tungsten powders for use in lithium-ion batteries under the ‘starck2charge®’ product brand. This is the company's second trademark within a short period of time, following the recent introduction of ‘starck2print®’ for products and services in the field of 3D printing.
The company, a subsidiary of Vietnamese Masan High-Tech Materials Group, has recently made considerable progress in the growth sector of lithium-ion batteries.

The next more sustainable generation of rail encapsulation

It is not only urbanisation that is advancing in leaps and bounds. The topic of sustainability is also becoming ever more present. The constant tightening of emission protection limits and the growing demand for sustainable products also require new, innovative materials and combinations in the production of modern insulation solutions. Sealable is rising to the challenge. A more sustainable RCS® will be launched.
The carbon black content is partially or completely substituted with a „functional filler“ made of wood. Thanks to the negative CO₂ footprint of the alternative material, the balance of Sealable's product will be significantly improved. The new filler material results in a significantly higher insulation of the RCS and a reduction in density. This makes it even more efficient against stray current and also lighter. All previous advantages for structure-borne sound insulation as well as the easy handling of our system remain unchanged.
Reduce the overall carbon footprint
Renewable Functional Fillers are the sustainable solution to substitute fossil-based and highly CO₂-intensive carbon black in rubber applications. RFF will be produced by converting sustainably sourced hardwood via innovative processes and conversion technologies.
Reducing CO₂ emissions throughout the lifecycle of rubber products is the primary objective to mitigate global warming. RFF has a more than 90% lower carbon footprint than a standard furnace and thermal carbon blacks. Consumer preferences and regulatory pressure call for replacing fossil-based materials with renewable products.
What does RFF offer?
Lightweight materials are an important element, especially in the transportation for better fuel economy. RFF has a more than 25% lower material density (1.3 g/cm3) than traditional functional fillers. This unique natural feature reduces overall rubber compound density and the weight of the end-products. Depending on compound design (i.e., rubber type, filler to be replaced, and actual filler loading), final weight savings of up to 25% can be achieved.
Matthias Klug (Managing Director from Sealable Solutions GmbH) particularly emphasises these advantages: "RFF is a PAH-free product, making it a safe solution to produce rubber products that come in contact with humans. In addition, it is a 100% electrical insulating product."
This feature effectively prevents electrochemical corrosion when in direct contact with light metal alloys based on magnesium and aluminium, thus improving the lifetime of the metal parts.
Fugro supports the development of RTE’s offshore substations for floating wind farms in the Mediterranean
RTE (Réseau de Transport d’Electricité) has awarded Fugro a contract to perform a geotechnical investigation for future offshore substations (OSS) at two floating wind farm sites in the Gulf of Lion in the Mediterranean Sea.
