The Bleaching step mechanism

When bleaching an-edible oil or fat with acid-activated clay, the acidic sites of the clay donate a proton to the pigment molecules and form a positively charged organic cation.  The pigment molecule is held to the surface of the clay by electrostatic bonding.

Omega-3 Fatty Acids

Our current daily diet now contains more omega-6 fatty acids than omega-3 fatty acids and this has increased over time and is considered negatively when considering the human diet.  Both DHA and EPA are omega-3 fatty acids but it is the DHA that is the more important of the two.  DHA is a major building block of the human brain.

High Omega-3 Consumption Has No Adverse Effects

The European Food Safety Authority’s (EFSA) Panel in Dietetic Products, Nutrition and Allergies (NDA) has said there is no scientific evidence suggesting excessive consumption of long-chain omega-3 fatty acids has any adverse effects on the human body.  Whilst there was not enough information for the panel to make a definitive statement, experts have agreed that supplemental intakes of EPA and DHA of up to 5g per day do not increase the risk of reported adverse effects, for example impaired regulation of glucose levels or immune function or increased bleeding episodes.  T

Water-soluble and biodegradable plastic - Injection Moulding products

Funeral Urn example:

Leading directly from the development of compounded injection mouldable water soluble products (PVOH), a commercial opportunity arose involving the production of biodegradable / water soluble funeral urns.

The required urns consisted of 3 parts:  the first part was the main body, the second part the lid, and the third part was a water-soluble bag.  The brief for the production of the funeral urns was that the urn:


The name bentonite derives from large deposits of clay mineral associated with Bentonite shale at Rock River, Montana USA. Some 85% of bentonite consists of forms of aluminium silicate known as montmorillonite which was identified in 1847 at Montmorillon France. Calcium montmorillonite is readily leached with mineral acid increasing its adsorption, surface area and catalytic activity.
