    1. "Green" recyclable rubber gives new life to single-use building materials

      Australian scientists have created a new kind of rubber polymer that could make for more sustainable building materials. This versatile new material can be used on its own like regular rubber, or mixed with filler materials to create brand new composites. Then when the useful life of the product is over, the material can be recycled in an almost endless loop. The rubber polymer is made of sulfur and canola oil, and it has a unique chemical structure.

    2. Prototype device gathers microplastics from car tires

      While we may think of car exhaust as being a major source of air pollution, automobile tires also hugely contribute to microplastics pollution. A team of British arts and sciences students, known as The Tyre Collective, decided to do something about the latter. Led by Prof. Robert Shorten of Imperial College London (and the Royal College of Art), they developed a prototype device that sits adjacent to a car's tire, close to where it touches the road.
