In the metalworking industry, cooling lubricants are needed in many milling, drilling and grinding applications astools, work pieces and equipment must be protected from the heat and wear. Currently the most common cooling lubricants consist of water for cooling, mineral oil for lubricating and emulsifiers to stabilize these water-and-oil mixtures.
Since 2011, professional skier Christina Ackermann had been struggling with incidences of recurring pain in her right knee. The diagnosis: degeneration and microcalcification of the quadriceps tendon owing to chronic inflammation and infection. Unfortunately, a prolonged period of physiotherapy and injections failed to solve the problem … which meant that an operation was the only remaining option. So, in 2013, the calcified material and the necrotic/inflamed tendon tissue was removed.

Overweight, obesity and the increasing frequency of lifestyle diseases are the unfortunate and highly visible consequences of poor nutrition and a lack of physical activity. Although simply consuming fewer calories and expending more energy would be a simple enough formula to halt this trend, it’s not working! In fact, the problem is growing as quickly as our waistlines. Eating less sugar and fat is not a viable solution; and although industry has provided acceptable systems for sugar replacement, fat reduction is far more complicated.
Collagen is the most abundant protein in the human body and, for many reasons, it’s essential for good health and wellbeing. As well as being the primary structural protein in our conjunctive tissues, it also plays key roles in joint mobility, bone stability, skin smoothness and even the health of hair and fingernails.
Apparently unaffected by global economics and boom-and-bust trends, the worldwide markets for collagen peptides and gelatin continue to flourish. Driving this growth are a number of factors, including an increasing awareness about personal healthcare and nutrition, the rising population of ageing consumers and the steady pace of industrialization in developing geographies.
