Electrochemical Recycling Electronic Constituents of Value (eRECOV) offers a game-changing solution to growing challenges of electronic waste. The economical and environmentally sound process eliminates the need for traditional recycling methods such as smelting and cyanide leaching. The chemistry in eRECOV is continuously regenerated, and its solution is reusable. These efficiencies add up to a process that saves money, uses less energy and greatly reduces the waste stream.

The unique process incorporates an electrochemical cell to efficiently dissolve metals from devices, leading to more complete recovery of recyclable materials. In addition to precious metals (gold, silver, palladium), eRECOV efficiently reclaims copper, tin, zinc, lead, nickel and rare earth elements.

The Environmental Protection Agency estimates that the United States generates nearly ...

The electronic calibration display is an electronic device that replaces a calibration sticker and adds the functionality of visual and audio aids to notify the user of approaching or past due calibrations.

How it works:
The onboard microprocessor is programmed through the Micro USB port with the current calibration information which includes the 1) date of calibration, 2) the next calibration due date, 3) identification of the calibration technician, and 4) any restrictions of the calibration.
After the information is downloaded to the device, the onboard program displays the information along with a green light.
A continuous loop will check the current date supplied by the real time clock against the calibration due date 100 times per second.

Elinfect is designed to force the vaccine syringe to become disposable so as to completely eliminate the infection caused by repeated use of the syringe. Therefore, two protrusions are added to the bottom of the syringe. When the syringe is pushed to the bottom, the protrusions on both sides limit the extraction of the piston, making the syringe unusable.

More details on how it works look at the second ...

We have identified several chemical compounds through review of the most recent literature which shows that selected metal-based chemicals, or biometals, are effective and an antagonistic therapeutic approach against the Covid-19 virus. These include Cu(I); Neocuproine Copper(II) and Bathocuproine Disulfonic Acid Copper(I). All of these compounds are commercially available, are considered to be GRAS (Generally Regarded as Safe) components and will be investigated as to the value of their possible use in creating a functional antagonist countermeasure to fight COVID-19 virus in the form of a ‘nasal spray’. Our planned outcome is not to develop a ‘vaccine’, as such, but to create a functional antagonist-countermeasure that does not breach the blood-brain barrier (see: Routes for Drug Translocation Across the ...

After reading numerous articles about football helmet design and the comments that "there will never be a concussion-proof football helmet," I am concerned about my grandson who plays high school football. I am also an aerospace materials engineer who does not like the term "never." If we subscribed to the adage that we would "never go to the moon" we wouldn't have much of the technology that we have today.

All of the articles that I have read about football helmet design focus around making the inside of the football helmet energy absorbing and always keeping the outer "shell" hard and rigid. There have been experiments with soft layers over the outer shell but they tend to just relocate ...

Competitive sports are a large part of today’s society. Many players of all ages are at risk of injury due to the pressure of wanting to win and doing well for fans. The excitement of winning, the promise of money and a supportive fan base are great motivators at the professional level, and may cause players to be over-aggressive during game play. They forget about the risks of impact and possibility of concussion and serious injury.

The Energy Absorbing Helmet outer shell is a recently patented technology that presents a breakthrough in safety equipment technology for sports participants who are required to wear a protective helmet during play.

The patented Energy Absorbing Helmet outer shell absorbs and reduces the amount ...

Automotive suspension systems utilizing shock-absorber components are indispensable parts of electrical automobiles relying on rechargeable battery power. Suspension systems are a good source of kinetic energy. In particular, commonly used hydraulic shock-absorbing components contain mechanically closed-loop and fluctuating pressure environment with high frequency force variations subject to vehicle weight, vehicle velocity, tire and road conditions.

Kinetic energy generated by electrical vehicle hydraulic shock absorbers can be harvested with high-efficiency and converted to DC voltage output within the shock-absorbers and used to recharge vehicle batteries or for other casual vehicle consumption. This proposal involves a method which does not use moving-parts and is easily adaptable to the existing shock-absorber manufacturing processes. Depicting the general concept in illustration provided(courtesy of Internet), ...

According to the World Coal Association (https://www.worldcoal.org/), the energy and cost benefits associated with coal combustion plays a vital role in the robustness of the electric-power generation, steel, and cement industries. Coal combustion accounts for 37% of global electricity generation. EVER-Green™ Coal is an engineered solid fuel alternative to traditional coal, providing a cleaner burn with high energy values and fewer emissions of CO2 (Carbon Dioxide), SO2 (Sulfur Dioxides) and NOx (Nitric Oxides) gases and eliminates other toxins (i.e. aluminum, beryllium, arsenic, mercury, lead, etc.…) that commonly cause groundwater contamination during the storage of combustible coal residue (CCR) located within coal ash ponds. EVER-Green™ Coal combines a unique blend of a “nontoxic” organic and/or inorganic ash; used cooking oils, ...

Many families across the world use open fires fueled by wood, charcoal or sometimes even plastic as their fire source for cooking, temperature regulation and other reasons. When this is done indoors it can be significantly damaging to health, especially for youth or elderly. For this reason most houses has a chimney or vent for the carbon to get out in the atmosphere. This will add more carbon to the environment that will increase the temperature of the earth on a cumulative standard while making the peoples safe from immediate health risk caused by carbon inhalation. But there are natural balance mechanisms that reduce the amount of carbon from the surrounding like plants but these natural counter balance mechanisms ...
