Waiakea Water Creates First Fully Degradable Plastic Bottle

Waiakea Hawaiian Volcanic water has announced that it will start using fully degradable bottles for packaging purposes. The new package makes use of TimePlast, the only patented additive for Nano-degradation of plastic, and is also fully recyclable. Waiakea is also going to be the first company to use TimePlast on its already recycled bottles.

According to Ryan Emmons, CEO of Waiakea, making the new bottle meant taking a different approach at polymers. Ryan believes that such an invention has not been possible before since many types of research focused on strengthening and not weakening plastics. However, unlike others who leave the degrading to nature, Waiakea now prefer to chemically degrade their plastics during manufacture, a process that only speeds up the natural degradation process. Ryan Emmons explains that instead of making biodegradable plastic, they transform the plastic polymers into a carbon-based degradable wax.

Waiakea spent over five years and conducted more than 1,200 tests before they developed a bottle that resembled the common ones, and integrating the actual properties of a regular plastic was one of the toughest challenges. Nevertheless, it is understood that the cost of TimePlast additives should not cause worries since one pound is enough to modify a thousand pounds of plastic, a price the industry can absorb.

Securus Technologies deploys Stingray technology from Mid East battlegrounds

War has always been one of the chief drivers of innovation. From the airplane technology of the World War II era to the invention of nuclear power, many of the most ground-shaking inventions of the 20th century were a direct result of battlefield applications.

 

This remains true to the present day. Many of the recent wars that the United States have waged throughout the Middle East and elsewhere have proven to be fertile grounds for the discovery and development of highly innovative technologies. One such technology is the so-called Stingray system, which enables the user to locate all cellular devices with pinpoint accuracy as well as the capacity to spoof and intercept phone calls and other transmissions.

 

One somewhat unlikely application of this highly sophisticated technology has been its newfound use throughout the prisons of the United States. Securus Technologies has done a great deal to bring this technology to the U.S. prison system, where it is used to detect and intercept illicit cellular communications and to rid the prison itself of illegal cellular devices.

 

To understand exactly how important and powerful this technology is, one must understand the extent to which contraband cellular devices pose an existential threat to modern carceral facilities. Prison gangs use unauthorized communications devices to carry out ongoing criminal conspiracies, including authorizing drug deals on the outside and even instructing soldiers on the outside of prison to commit murders. These illegal devices have the potential to seriously destabilize the internal security of any prison.

 

But with Securus Stingray technology, the scourge of illegal cellular devices is finally being met head-on with effective countermeasures. In the institutions where the Stingray system has been deployed, guards have reported a reduction of up to 99 percent of unknown cellular device confiscation. This indicates that the system is almost completely effective in eliminating unauthorized cell phones.
