 As the subsidies that have supported the solar industry for years come into question or disappear altogether, the industry is looking around for new business models.  One possible direction for solar is towards building-integrated photovoltaics (BIPV), where the cost model is superior to regular PV.  BIPV holds out the hope that the PV industry can flourish with fewer subsidies. 
   
 As things turn out, this opportunity for the PV, will also be a growing opportunity for the encapsulation business too.  Flexibility is often required in BIPV and this means that manufacturers of BIPV often have an immediate need for an effective flexible PV encapsulation system.  In addition, as monolithic integration becomes more common, specialist encapsulation systems are...

By - Transparency Market Research
Antiseptics and Disinfectants are broadly classified under the class of Anti-infective agents or germicides. Antiseptics are chemical compounds or antimicrobial agent that kills or inhibits the growth of microorganism when applied to a living tissue such as skin. While, disinfectants are the chemical compounds that prevents infection by killing of microorganisms, growing on inert objects such as knife, forceps etc. Antiseptics and Disinfectants form an essential part of infection control practices and aid in prevention of acquired infections. These chemicals are extensively...
