Green Coating Market is predicted
to grow at approximately 5% by 2022
Coating is a layer of a substance spread over a surface as for protection or decoration. Any coating that does not pollute the environment or indirectly reduces pollution during any of its stages can be termed as Green Coating. The growth of the end use industries is the key factor driving the growth of the market. Additionally, the coating manufacturers have shifted their focus to bio-based coating due to stringent regulatory standards of REACH, EPA, and other environment & health care agencies.

Hubble Observes Exoplanet that Snows Sunscreen
For most of us, titanium dioxide is just another chemical compound, but those of us with distressingly pale, burns-after-10-minutes-in-the-sun skin know it as the active compound in sunscreen. (The good type! The type less likely to give you some other form of cancer.)
Because the universe is weird and wild, it turns out there is an exoplanet far out in space where titanium dioxide naturally occurs as snow.
Kepler-13Ab, one of the 2,337 confirmed exoplanets discovered using the Kepler space observatory, is in a solar system 1,730 light years from us. It is a large, gaseous planet, about six times the mass of Jupiter, but it’s a type of planet called a “hot Jupiter.” In fact, Kepler-13Ab, where temperatures reach 5,000 degrees Fahrenheit, is one of the hottest exoplanets yet discovered. <more>
