Transcript of The Life of a Hockey Puck

Consumption: What are hockey pucks made out of? Extraction: Production: Where are they produced and how? Distribution: The uses of hockey pucks: You are skating down the center of the ice, just dangled your way past their defense , you wind up, and drill the puck into the net. Yes! You scored! You might of even won the game! With that single puck. But have you ever wondered about that puck?Have you ever been curious about what they are made out of? Or if they are harmful to the environment? The Life of a Hockey Puck Hockey pucks are made out of Vulcanized Rubber. ~Vulcanized Rubber is a combination of rubber and sulfur that increases the strength and durability and reduces its stickiness
-Sulfur is mainly found in Canada, United States, and West Asia.
-Sulfur is found in the Earth's crust in oceans, meteorites and in volcanoes
- Vulcanized Rubber is primarily made out of natural rubber and a type of coal dust (Carbon Black) and then two different types of oil are added, and Sulphur and Calcium Carbonate are used as well as antioxidants Hockey Pucks are only produced in 5 countries; Canada, Russia, China, Czech Republic, and Slovakia. -Mix natural rubber and a type of coal dust (Carbon Black) add two different types of oil, then put in Sulfur and Calcium Carbonate so that the rubber will cure
-After that they add antioxidants to help prevent the rubber from breaking down over time Where do they go? Hockey pucks are shipped all around the world to teams, stores, and arenas for endless use in practices and games. Over 40 million pucks are sold around the world per year -Hockey pucks can be used for ice hockey of all ages, road hockey, practices, shooting in driveways, roller hockey, and even underwater hockey.

How much pollution is transportation emitting into our society?
How can I be environmentally friendly when disposing of hockey pucks? Environmental Issues What's the impact of hockey pucks? -Post consumer waste
-more difficult to recycle because rubber cannot be processed by the simple heat and pressure technique like plastic can
-factories create fumes and pollution
-extraction of resources creates pollution
-transportation of rubber tree sap causes pollution
-importing sap causes pollution
-transportation of product causes pollution
