LITHOS Manufacturing has been offered to collaborate on research for the XRD characterization of Philippine Natural Zeolites.

Lithos Manufacturing CEO Eleanor Olegario met with Dr. David Bish during the International Clay Conference midweek excursion in Istanbul Park. Dr. David is a Professor Emeritus at Indiana University Bloomington. His research focuses on X-ray diffraction and thermoanalytical methods to investigate the behavior of solids, notably minerals, in non-ambient environments. He was one of the original designers of the CheMin compact X-ray diffraction/X-ray fluorescence instrument, which is already in use on the surface of Mars.

The photo was taken with Hagia Sophia in the background. When it was first built more than a millennium ago, Istanbul’s Hagia Sophia basilica was used as a place of worship for Christians. The Hagia Sophia, like the Eiffel Tower in Paris and the Parthenon in Athens, has stood as a testament to Istanbul’s global reach for centuries.
