Honeywell Announces Production of Low GWP Synthetic

Delivering on a promise made last year at a White House event, chemical manufacturer Honeywell announced that it has commenced commercial production of a low-global-warming-potential refrigerant. The new substance, called HFO-1234ze has a low-global-warming-potential of less than 1 and is marketed by Honeywell as part of its Solstice line of low-global-warming materials, the company said. Honeywell announced in September that it will increase production of its low GWP refrigerants, insulation materials, aerosols and solvents. Read the source article at

Ammonia Gas, Graphene Could Boost Storage Capacity of Batteries

In yet another application for ammonia and graphene – pure carbon in the form of a very thin, nearly transparent sheet, one atom thick – a Kansas State University engineering team said it has discovered a way to improve sodium- and lithium-ion flexible batteries. The researchers found that sodium storage capacity of paper electrodes depends on the distance between individual layers that can be tuned by heating with ammonia gas.
