How We Work:  "I was referred to your company by a colleague regarding some unique insulating material that we have in excess.  The material is a form of aerogel called Nanogel by Cabot. We used it to insulate an experimental oil well.  The material was quite expensive when we purchased it.  The unit cost is about $6,100/cubic meter!  There is nothing wrong with this stuff.  We just need to clear out our warehouse.  In addition, I am sure Cabot Corporation would be thrilled to hear about some unique, new use for the Nanogel." Leonard

Q: How could these rubber skeletons be "repurposed"?  Email Ideas>>

"If anyone has to put a trail or road in in soft soil, you could use the rubber skeleton as a structural member under your roadway." - Bill

"Depending on the size of the cut section it could be used as a snow fence used up here in Canada for areas were there is lots of wind, it create a retaining wall." Daniel

"If they are somewhat strong, a roll or part of a roll could be used as a "sand ladder" for vehicles. I live in Bermuda Dunes, CA and a number of people do not have 4-wheel drive and even 4-wheel drive does not work on soft sand." Greg
