New method shows it is possible to grow bone for grafts within a patient's body

... Their major concern was that the bioreactor would fill with scar tissue instead of bone, but that didn't happen. Instead, it filled with bone that is indistinguishable from the original bone. The scientists intend to proceed with the large animal studies and clinical trials necessary to determine if the ...

Catalyst support structures facilitate high-temperature fuel reforming

... of closely packed spheres." Next, the researchers fill the spaces between the spheres with a low-viscosity, preceramic polymer-based liquid. After low-temperature curing, the mold is removed, leaving a stable, freestanding structure. Lastly, the cured ceramic precursor is pyrolyzed at 1,200 degrees Celsi...

National Academies news: DOE should consider enhancing cleanup and stabilization

...rom tanks at the Savannah River Site, DOE plans to fill the tanks with grout to close most of them permanently. But given that the small amount of residual waste left in the tanks has a much lower likelihood of causing significant radioactive contamination of the environment, the department need not rush...
