Textile recycling pioneers weave their magic • Recycling International

The scale of the international textiles industry is enormous: it produces upwards of 100 billion pieces of clothing every year, represents 3% of the world’s GDP and employs around 75 million people. The USA alone generates around 15 million tonnes of textiles waste annually. Today, not even 5% of materials within the US$ 1.9 trillion global fashion industry get recycled. But that may be about to change. A group of researchers and scientists at Australia’s Deakin University has found a way to transform natural, dyed or blended fibres into various valuable products such as artificial joints. The innovative process breaks down fabrics to their chemical level, says Associate Professor Dr Nolene Byrne. Denim was an obvious starting point for the R&D project because it is made from cotton, a natural polymer comprised of 90% cellulose. ‘Cellulose is a versatile renewable material,’ she states. The Australian specialists managed to dissolve denim with eco-friendly liquid solvents and manipulate the remains into an aerogel. Byrne notes that aerogels are a class of advanced materials with very low density, sometimes referred to as ‘frozen smoke’ or ‘solid smoke’. When the researchers ...

As uses for body cameras go beyond law enforcement, it has created a compelling business opportunity

As uses for body cameras go beyond law enforcement, it has created a compelling business opportunity for security integrators As I walked the aisles at the recent ASIS Global Security Exchange (GSX) event in Chicago, I noticed how many camera and video management software vendors were touting business applications for mobile and body-worn cameras. This should be quite appealing to security integrators, especially one that has a strong recurring revenue component. Body worn cameras (BWC) for policing have seen a rapid global adoption rate unlike any other public agency technology adoption; in fact, there are now more than 60 different body worn cameras produced specifically for law enforcement use. Lessons learned from police BWC adoption can provide valuable insights and perspectives to security consultants and integrators who service cities and counties, businesses and citizen groups such homeowner associations and neighborhood watches. In addition, many of these lessons apply to emerging non-security applications – business functions – for mobile video and body worn cameras. As mobile and BWC video usage increases, there have been five lessons learned for security integrators...

Solid state battery breakthrough could double the density of lithium-ion cells

Researchers at Australia’s Deakin University say they’ve managed to use common industrial polymers to create solid electrolytes, opening the door to double-density solid state lithium batteries that won’t explode or catch fire if they overheat. Dr. Fangfang Chen and Dr. Xiaoen Wang from Deakin’s Institute for Frontier Materials claim to have made a breakthrough with “the first clear and useful example of liquid-free and efficient transportation of lithium-ion in the scientific community.” The new technology uses a solid polymer material, weakly bonded to the lithium-ion, to replace the volatile liquid solvents typically used as electrolytes in current battery cells. The liquid electrolyte is the part of the system that becomes flammable during the kinds of infamous battery fires Samsung would rather forget. “If industry implements our findings I see a future where battery reliant devices can be safely packed in airplane baggage, for example, or where electric cars don’t pose a fire risk for occupants or emergency services like they currently do,” Dr Chen said in a press release.
