  • Flame and gas detection in hangars

    Flammable materials (aviation fuels, cleaning solvents, and paints) present in aircraft hangars can endanger life, safety, aircraft, and the hangar structure. To improve protection, many Authorities Having Jurisdiction (AHJ) either require or strongly recommend high-performance fire detection and suppression systems to cover both the aircraft and the building. Here are a few considerations to ...

  • First detection of novel flame retardants in Antarctic species

    Groups of chemicals used as flame retardants were present in the bodies of Antarctic rock cod (Trematomus bernacchii), young gentoo penguin (Pygoscelis papua), and brown skua seabird (Stercorarius antarcticus) collected from King George Island, Antarctica. This study is the first to find some of these chemicals in Antarctica, confirming that they undergo long-range transport and can reach ...
