University of Toronto chemists identify role of soil in pollution control
Exchange Magazine
Scientists have long known that air pollution caused by cars and trucks, solvent use and even plants, is reduced when broken down by naturally occurring compounds that act like detergents of the atmosphere. What has not been well understood until now are the relative contributions of all the processes producing such compounds. A new study, led by University of Toronto atmospheric chemist Jennifer Murphy, shows a key component of the process is the soil beneath our feet.

Mining tires face the toughest conditions
Canadian Mining Journal
Rock and rubber are synonymous with mining because there are very few machines used in today's mines that don't rely on either tires or rubber tracks to keep material moving. From deep underground at the face, to down in an open pit mine beneath a clear blue sky, machines used to drill, load and haul ore to the surface face rugged conditions every day and without the support of equally rugged tires (and tracks); most machines would not be able to perform.
