  • Pressure control — products from the Bernic Lake pegmite in Canada

    A unique application of oil and gas well drilling fluids has created a profitable new opportunity for the Bernic Lake pegmatite in Manitoba, Canada. Drilling for oil and gas requires the well to be filled with a dense fluid or drilling mud to prevent highly-pressured fluids and gases entering the well bore and flowing to the surface, cesium formite drilling mud improves project economics and reduces the operational risk of developing oil and gas reservoirs.

  • Boning up on selection ― Regenerative glass scaffolds for tissue replacement

    Selecting materials for en vivo use has moved away from tissue replacement implants to using materials that stimulate the body's own regenerative mechanisms. The two main strategies are in situ tissue regeneration and tissue engineering, both techniques grow cells on bone scaffolds which are directly implanted into the body.
