  • An Eco-balance of a Recycling Plant for Spent Lead–Acid Batteries

    This study applies Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) methodology to present an eco-balance of a recycling plant that treats spent lead–acid batteries. The recycling plant uses pyrometallurgical treatment to obtain lead from spent batteries. The application of LCA methodology (ISO 14040 series) enabled us to assess the potential environmental impacts arising from the recycling plants operations. Thus, ...

  • 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 ...

  • Japanese Organics Recycling Association Formed

    Another backyard composting adage states that compost should have the feel of a wrung-out sponge — damp but not dripping wet. Actually, a wrung-out sponge may be on the dry side for composting, but the analogy does provide a great image for understanding the reasons for balancing moisture. Like a compost pile (or windrow or material in a vessel), a sponge is a solid mass containing an enormous ...

  • Why Rare Earth Recycling is Rare (and What can We Do About it)

    Earbuds, touch screens, CFLs with a warm glow, rechargeable batteries and power windows: Most of us take these things for granted. When we do, we also take for granted a group of elements called rare earth metals, whose special electronic and magnetic properties make them a key component of many 21st century technologies. These 17 elements are actually plentiful enough — you probably have ...

  • Non-Contacting Solution for Plugged Off Flow Meters in The Oil Patch

    For years Petrobakken Energy Ltd. used inline turbine flow meters to track the flow rate of oil recycled to treaters. But with a high concentration of wax and sand in the oil, the turbine meters were quickly plugging off. The line had to be shut down at least once a day and the turbine flowmeters disassembled for cleaning. This was troublesome and expensive. Petrobakken knew there had to be a ...
