Enhancing Precious Metal Recovery From Electronic Waste

New technology developed by Iowa State engineers uses heat and oxidation to recover pure and precious metals from electronic waste. It works in two ways -- it can bring the most reactive components to the surface, forming stalagmite-like spikes (left); and it can leave the least reactive components in the core surrounded by metal-oxide spikes, creating a "ship-in-a-bottle" structure (right).

A Past Recorded in Poop

News

Deep in a Jamaican cave is a treasure trove of bat poop, deposited in sequential layers by generations of bats over 4,300 years. Analogous to records of the past found in layers of lake mud and Antarctic ice, the guano holds information about changes in climate and how the bats' food sources shifted over the millennia, according to a new study.
