Buying products individually turned out to be less environmentally friendly than in ready-made kits.

The researchers performed a so-called life cycle comparative assessment by calculating total emissions

greenhouse gases in the average dinner prepared from a set of food compared to the same food prepared at home from individual ingredients.

As a result, scientists came to the conclusion that a single product bought in a store produces 33% more greenhouse gas emissions than an equivalent set of food.

Scientists have discovered that plastic crystalsNeopentyl glycol under pressure gives a cooling effect - so much so that they are competitive with traditional cooling fluids. In addition, the material is inexpensive, widely available and works at room temperature.
