  • Is it time to recycle more nickel?

    Now you might think me a little sad, but I have to confess that as a metallurgist, I always find it interesting just how closely the history of mankind is linked to advances in metal working. The first evidence of metal working in Europe dates from around 5500 BC with the extraction of copper, lead and precious metals and this was followed by the working of bronze from around 4000 BC, both of ...

  • Are incineration and landfills the answer to save us from the recycling crisis?

    For plastic recycling, this year hasn’t exactly been one of the best – what is to blame? Oil. Shockingly, it actually costs more to recycle old plastic than it does to make new in many ways.

  • Why Our Buildings Should Be Made From Wood

    If done correctly, using wood for buildings would have a number of environmental benefits without loss of biodiversity or carbon storage capacity. Although it may seem counterintuitive, it would be better if we built buildings from wood than from concrete, brick, aluminium and steel. We use millions of tons of these modern materials every year. They have many ...

    When people buy new computers, TV-sets or trendy mobile phones they do not think much about the future of substituted models. In a consumer society where devices are changed due to their obsolescence rather than break down the problem of pollution by e-wastes becomes more relevant. Disposal of printed circuit ...
