Currently, worldwide, many nations are paying close attention to the improvement and optimization of the usage of recycled materials in the building sector. The increase in the raw materials and the increased environmental awareness have gained considerable importance on a global [...]

Abstract

Noxious diesel emissions far above official limits and the need to rapidly reduce-greenhouse gases generate widespread calls for banning fossil-fueled cars in Europe. This report shows that it is possible to electrify 50 per cent of all new cars in the EU by 2030.  This, however, [...]

Abstract

utomation of disassembly processes in electronic waste recycling is progressing but hindered by the lack of automated procedures for screw detection and removal. Here we specifically address the detection problem and implement a universal, generalizable, and extendable screw detector [...]

Abstract

utomobile industry is one of the most developed industries in Ukraine and in the world today. The ever-increasing demand for transportation leads to an increase in demand for fuel, which in turn increases its deficit and value. Therefore, the high cost of traditional hydrocarbon fuels [...]

Abstract

Concrete is the main material used in the construction industry not only for the ability to produce infinite variety of shapes for precast forms and for its characteristics of high resistance to compression, but primarily for their low manufacturing cost. Nonetheless, the production [...]

Abstract

Summary Although Britain is relatively rich in natural aggregate reserves, planning approvals to develop new quarries are running at about half the rate of aggregate extraction. This paper reports on a property study of crushed concrete and demolition debris with a view to using [...]

Abstract

Background:          The growing number of electric vehicles gives rise to a whole new reverse supply chain. Once the electric vehicle batteries reach their end-of-life, societal and governmental pressure forces automotive manufacturers to set up a network for disposing the [...]

Abstract

The battery is a key component of electric vehicles. To reach the needed voltage and capacity, single Lithium-Ion cells are assembled into modules, then assembled into the pack. Their disassembly, which unlocks both remanufacturing or recycling and which nowadays is made mainly manually, [...]
