Mercury adsorbent

The VaporLokCapture is a breakthrough technology that adsorbs mercury vapors from broken lamps within lamp storage, shipping, or recycling containers. The VaporLokCapture is featured in VaporLok’s fluorescent lamp shipping and recycling system. The design minimizes the risk of exposure to mercury by reducing 95% of the vapor within a container. The VaporLokCapture is manufactured with powdered activated carbon and inert chemicals, which immediately capture mercury vapor when lamps or compact fluorescent lamps (CFL) break. The product will be incorporated into industrial products of VaporLok and consumer CFL packaging solutions.

Annual Salary Survey

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
