Recycling critical metals in e-waste: Make it the law, experts warn EU, citing raw material security

(Terry Collins Assoc) End-of-life circuit boards, certain magnets in disc drives and electric vehicles, EV and other special battery types, and fluorescent lamps are among several electrical and electronic products containing critical raw materials (CRMs), the recycling of which should be made law, says a new UN-backed report funded by the EU.

Researchers Boost Performance of Solar Cells By Using Human Hair From a Barbershop

Researchers have used carbon dots, created from human hair waste sourced from a barbershop, to create a kind of ‘armor’ to improve the performance of cutting-edge solar technology. In a study, the researchers led by Professor Hongxia Wang in collaboration with Associate Professor Prashant Sonar of QUT’s Centre for Materials Science showed the carbon nanodots could […]

The Green Mirage: Why A Low-Carbon Economy Is Further Off Than We Think

Bottom Line: The current prospects for a sustainable low-carbon economy are poor in both the UK and across the European Union (EU). Germany and Spain have already clearly shown what happens when state coercion forces such a dramatic shift to…

Perovskite solar modules: High efficiency on a large surface area

(Karlsruher Institut für Technologie (KIT) ) From cell to module without loss of efficiency: Researchers at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) have managed to produce perovskite solar modules with minimum scaling loss. For this purpose, they combined laser-based series interconnections with vacuum processing of all layers of the solar cell. They achieved an 18 percent efficiency on an area of four square centimeters – a world record for vacuum-processed perovskite solar modules.

The legume family tree

(Penn State) The most comprehensive study of the family tree for legumes, the plant family that includes beans, soybeans, peanuts, and many other economically important crop plants, reveals a history of whole-genome duplications.

Springer Nature advances its machine-generated tools and offers new book format (AI-based lit overview)

(Springer) Springer Nature has now deployed its AI expertise to create a new publication format which focuses on literature reviews. This new format takes an innovative hybrid approach of blending human-machine interaction. The new product is a mixture of human-written text and machine-generated literature overviews, which sees an author putting these machine-generated reviews, created from a large set of previously published articles in Springer Nature journals, into book chapters and providing a scientific perspective.

Watch NASA Mars Helicopter Make Aviation History: The First Powered, Controlled Flight on Another Planet

When NASA’s Perseverance rover touched down on Mars two months ago, it did so with a helicopter attached to its belly. Now the Ingenuity Mars Helicopter has made history as the first to take a powered, controlled flight on another planet. On April 19, the chopper rose three meters above the floor of a crater, […]
