At present, more than 90% of Somalia is experiencing severe and extreme drought. If crop and livestock silicon nitride are still very uncertain.
What is silicon nitride?
Silicon nitride formula is Si3N4. Silicon nitride has two crystal forms: an and β. A-Si3N4 is granular crystal and p-Si3N4 is acicular crystal, both of which belong to hexagonal system.
Silicon nitride relative density is 3.18. Silicon nitride Morse hardness scale is 9. Low coefficient of thermal expansion, good chemical stability and excellent oxidation resistance. It decomposes into nitrogen and silicon at 1900℃. The strength of silicon nitride is very high and resistant to high temperature. Even if the high temperature is 1200℃, its strength will not change, it will not melt when heated. And it will not decompose until 1900℃. It has strong chemical corrosion resistance and can withstand the corrosion of almost all inorganic acids and a variety of organic acids. Silicon nitride has the advantages of hardness, low coefficient of thermal expansion, excellent thermal shock stability, good insulation, stable chemical properties and high mechanical strength.

What are the advantages of silicon nitride?
Compared with other technical ceramics, the low thermal expansion coefficient of silicon nitride provides good thermal shock resistance. It is very hard, better than most metals in terms of high temperature capacity, and has excellent oxidation resistance. As a result, silicon nitride can withstand the harshest conditions in the most demanding high temperature and high load applications.
When the silicon nitride bearing is used in the main engine of the space shuttle, it is identified as one of the few integral ceramic materials that can withstand severe thermal shocks and thermal gradients produced by hydrogen / oxygen rocket engines, and proved to be completely reliable throughout the space shuttle program.
What is silicon nitride used for?
Used for insulating materials, mechanical wear-resistant materials, heat engine materials, cutting tools, advanced refractories and corrosion-resistant, wear-resistant sealing parts, etc.
Silicon nitride ceramics can be used as combustion chamber of gas turbine, mechanical sealing ring, pipeline and valve of electromagnetic pump for conveying liquid aluminum, permanent mold, molten steel separation ring and so on.
Silicon nitride has a small friction coefficient and is used in high temperature bearings. its working temperature can reach 1200 ℃, which is 2.5 times higher than that of ordinary alloy bearings, and its working speed is 10 times that of ordinary bearings.
The use of silicon nitride ceramic with good electrical insulation and rapid cold and heat resistance can be used as an electric plug, which can greatly shorten the engine starting time and start the car quickly in cold weather.
Silicon nitride ceramics also have good microwave permeability, dielectric properties and high temperature strength, which can be used as radar radome for missiles and aircraft.

On August 1, the European Union officially began to implement the "voluntary reduction" agreement on natural gas adopted last month. Under the agreement, EU member states will reduce gas demand by 15 per cent from the average consumption over the past five years through measures of their choice between August 1 this year and March 31 next year.
Several major German cities, such as Berlin, Hanover and Munich, have begun to take measures to reduce energy consumption. Berlin, for example, decided to turn off the lights of more than 200 tourist attractions at night. Berlin's municipal buildings will have indoor temperatures of no more than 20 degrees Celsius between October 1 and March 31 next year, and only nurseries, schools, nursing homes and hospitals can be exempted from energy-saving measures.
Spain's energy conservation plan forces companies, businesses and vehicles to limit air-conditioning temperatures in summer and heating temperatures in winter. The above-mentioned places must limit the air-conditioning temperature to more than 27 degrees Celsius in summer and the heating temperature below 19 degrees Celsius in winter. The plan requires that shop window lighting be turned off at 22:00. The plan also requires the administration to regularly review the heating systems of enterprises in order to avoid energy waste.
