Refinery Coke Handlers dealing with coke dust problems : coating Nomex clothing/sticking to equipment surface &control room ect. Seems NASA has patent on material from nature that can repel dust – seems the moon dust caused lot more problems than they shared – tore up materials/equipment/filters/space suits. (There isnt anything to smooth sharp surface of dust particles.)
I saw Sicence magazine in library that Nasa just came up with new design material patterned off Lotus leaf (has surface texture naturally repels water & dust). Lotus leaf acts like surface is plastic coated – but has micro extensions that hold material above surface until rain/water washes it off (also held above surface).
