  • 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 ...

  • An intelligent battery information management system to support information sharing and vehicle routing planning for battery distribution in Hong Kong

    Recently, the deployment of electric vehicles (EV) has been recognised as a key element for establishing sustainable transport systems within countries. Research studies have been conducted to tackle challenges regarding the commercial introduction of EV. However, the current plug–in EV infrastructure poses operational limitations, causing users refusing to change from fossil–fuelled vehicles to ...

  • 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 ...

  • Future Cars & Shifting Environmental Burdens

    Ask the average person what they think passenger cars could be like in the future and you are bound to get a wide range of opinions. The more fanciful, looking into the longer term future, might envision an ultra-high-tech world where passenger cars are fitted with “anti-gravity” drives and hover around, powered by nuclear fission perhaps, with zero emissions. But chances are ...

  • UE: risk of shortage for 8 rare earth metals

    In a report published on November 4th, the European Joint Research Centre (JRC) has warned of the "risk of shortage" in 2020-2030 of eight strategic metals used in low carbon energy technologies identified in the European SET Plan adopted in 2008. This report continues the work done in a previous study of the JRC from 2011. It is also based on the scenarios presented in 2011 in the roadmap of ...

  • Running performance of front–and–rear–wheel–independent–drive–type electric vehicle suitable for next–generation electric vehicles

    A front–and–rear–wheel–independent–drive–type–electric vehicle (FRID EV) is being developed as the next–generation EV with optimum characteristics compatible with driving performance and safety. Development of the FRID EV has involved studying the driving performance and safety of all types of propulsion systems. Since the FRID EV has propulsion systems that can control the driving and braking ...

  • Gently does it takes you further

    Drivers of petrol and diesel cars are usually aware that driving at high speed, harsh acceleration and hard braking all contribute to lowering their fuel economy. Scientists can readily explain in terms of the thermodynamics of the internal combustion engine why driving such a car more smoothly and at gentler speeds will increase ...

  • The Newton, IA Landfill: A Smooth Operation

    The Newton, IA landfill sta rted out as an old strip mine in 1945. When it first was created, trash was dumped at the site and whenever it was needed, the garbage was set on fire and pushed into the old strip mine. As the rules have changed throughout the years, the dump was transitioned into a sanitary landfill in the late 1960s. However, at that time the trash would still pile up and would not ...

  • Electric vehicles: A win for Detroit and EE

    At this week’s Detroit Auto Show, electric vehicles are on top. Two of the year’s highest-rated cars are electric. The plug-in hybrid electric Chevy Volt was awarded this year’s “Car of the Year,” just beating out the all-electric Nissan LEAF. But regardless of which car wins, the message is clear: electric cars are generating a lot of excitement. It’s not just ...

  • Case study – benzene contamination - tank battery, Weld County, Colorado

    Introduction LTE was requested by Devon Energy Corporation (Devon) to remediate residual soil and groundwater impacts at an exploration and production site in Weld County, Colorado. Soil impacts were found from the surface to 24 feet below ground surface (bgs) and were a result of produced water sump and aboveground storage tank overfills. Benzene concentrations in the groundwater were up to ...

  • Lithium Ion Battery testing for vehicles

    Introduction Lithium-ion batteries are used in many types of devices including over 60% of mobile phones and 90% of laptop computers. These batteries are inside iPods and iPads, as well as military and medical hardware. They are even powering pacemakers in the human body. However, the most significant growth in demand for Lithium-ion batteries is in the hybrid/electric vehicle market. This ...
