Invention Summary: Large oil spills (over 100,000 tons) such as the BP Deepwater Horizon spill (in which $20B was spent on cleanup and litigation) are not very frequent. However, in 2011 there were over 10 oil spills that released between 15 to 5,500 tons of oil into water. When an oil spill disaster occurs, oil quickly spreads on the surface of wa...

Inorganic, Mineral-based Polymers with Ionic Crosslinks
Inorganic ionomers show characteristic behavior of polymers, including fiber formation (left) and flow (center). However, they have high thermal stability: like silicate glass (top right), inorganic ionomers (bottom right) they do not burn or produce fumes when exposed to flame.Invention Summary:Traditional, carbon-based, organic polymers have many...
