  • Oil companies are merging to compete with rising offshore production. Alaskan oil was once plentiful but is now more expensive and difficult to recover; Canada has the most easily extracted but remote reserves; Pacific Rim countries face protests from land owners for environmental reasons; Nigeria, Iraq, and Russia produce some of the world's cheapest oil but demand cuts into their energy infrastructure. There are many challenges involved with recovering our resources for future generations. https://borates.today/boron-oil-extraction/

  • jessicaallen33 - The challenges of recovering oil include finding the right balance between price and quantity, fighting off hoarding (both legal and illegal), preventing investors from entering the market only to take their profits out again later, or various other moves that artificially control prices. There are also questions about who should be compensated for how much damage they done to the environment. Policies like these all work against getting people to pay what crude oil is worth in its natural state- in bars of silver or gold.
  • Campbell_Carol - It's important to differentiate between the challenges of oil and gas production. Oil contains a lot more carbon than gas, which means that oil production is far more adverse for the environment. Small amounts of natural gas are usually found in varying quantities with petroleum deposits, and gas can be easily retrieved from these deposits by drilling through them. This provides an easy way to collect small quantities of what would otherwise be lost as methane (CH4) and other volatile compounds.
  • Anderson_Mark2248 - Oil companies are merging because of rising offshore production which is actually leading to job losses in some areas. Alaska produces less oil than it used to, so it's also becoming more expensive and difficult to recover these resources.

  • Borax or boric acid is a white crystalline water-soluble solid with a saline taste. The name "borax" comes from Middle Persian "waraq" meaning "salt". In 1820, the American scientist John Davison discovered that borax acts as a fire extinguisher or desiccant due to its high boiling point. Precipitates of elemental fluorine from burning fluorocarbons typically attack fabrics and plastics made from petrochemicals, but many naturally occurring substances can corrode these materials instead of having this effect when burned at their elevated temperatures. https://borates.today/boron-fire-retardant/

  • jessicaallen33 - Boric Acid is a chemical compound that provides a flame retardant property. It's a slow killer to insects and a poison to humans. Boric acid can also enter the body if it is breathed in, eaten, or located on the skin. Prolonged exposure to boric acid fumes can lead to death from its physical and chemical side-effects. Exposure may worsen low blood pressure, cause lung problems such as pneumonia, and extreme burning sensations such as coughing up blood - just like how arsenic does it!
  • Campbell_Carol - Boric acid also reduces tensile strength in materials like plastics by lowering their molecular weight through hydrolysis or dehydration. For example, when mixed with P-Cresol (a phenolic compound), it can weaken cellophane tape at ambient conditions by about 10%. Sodium hydroxide creates similar effects - which is why boric acid was once used as an effective drain cleaner alongside naturally occurring sodium hydroxide water solutions.
  • Anderson_Mark2248 - When boric acid is mixed with certain chemicals, it becomes a flame retardant. As the temperature increases, this mixture releases an alkali that turns into an acid and reduces the pH of the flame. This lowers the temperature of the fire enough to prevent further burning - but only temporarily.

  • A 1999 consensus panel concluded that boron in the treatment of brain tumors causes more harm than good, based on a lack of evidence for its benefits and a high incidence of adverse side-effects. The 1999 consensus report was also challenged by some people due to the presence of incomplete citations, dubious references, and improper analysis of data. Boron is still commonly marketed as a treatment for cancer patients in low doses for preventive purposes. https://borates.today/boron-war-cancer/

  • Anderson_Mark2248 - Many professionals argue that the term "brain tumor" is misleading because tumors are typically not found in the brain. It should be called something more indicative to where they are found - like cerebellar tumors, meningeal cell cells, etc. There is no one answer for this question because different specialists have differing views on what can be done to treat it. So I would look into natural remedies instead of turning to prescriptions that have side effects that create even more problems.
  • davidgarcia27 - Actually, there is one study I came across RTK/PDGF inhibitor therapy adding radioactive iodine to chelate boron for C6 rat brain tumor generation at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center—in vitro studies showed significant cytotoxicity increase of tumor cells using boron.
  • Campbell_Carol - The use of boron in the treatment of brain tumors has been pursued by Dr. Glen Burton for decades with diligence, yet no human trials have occurred to date.

  • It's a magnetic system that generates and sustains the plasmoid.
    A plasmoid is an engineered mini-cosmos, part of which can be controlled externally to study astrophysical phenomena like stars and black holes.

    Computationally power intensive? Yes or No? Definitely not! It's computationally efficient because it uses tethering from stable points on Earth to generate a stable plasma field for confinement.

    In contrast to other more established computer simulation technologies, it does not require any initialization time for its simulations as long as the initial boundary conditions are placed correctly. This provides a significant advancement in research as well as execution times. https://borates.today/boron-clean-electricity/

  • Anderson_Mark2248 - Nuclear Fusion could be cleaner than solar energy! Solar cells are expensive right now, but it could change someday very soon (and I hope).
  • jessicaallen33 - The ultimate goal for this research is clean, safe "nuclear power" (without the radiation), like an old-timey coal plant without the air pollution or massive piles of ash or risk of flooding everything with radioactive water in case something goes wrong.
  • davidgarcia27 - This refers to a nuclear fusion machine, which confines plasma by using magnetic fields from coils of huge electrical cables. It's tricky to contain the plasma because there's amps and gobs of voltage involved so these things vibrate and shake massively when they're operating.

  • Agriculture is necessary for food security because it provides the raw materials for much of our food supply. Specifically, it provides most of the calories that are grown to feed livestock, which are then consumed in fresh or processed form by humans. The total agricultural output in this way accounts for about 10% of all global calorie production - a significant amount when considering how many people in developing nations don't have sufficient access to nutritious food.

  • Anderson_Mark2248 - Crop production includes growing plants such as corn, fruits, vegetables, sugar cane stalks-to name a few; whereas animal husbandry is raising domesticated animals such as cattle (for meat), pigs (also for meat), chicken (mainly eggs) or sheep (wool).
  • Campbell_Carol - Agriculture is a field of science that has evolved in order to meet the increasing demands for food over the past few decades. There are many aspects and production systems involved with agriculture, but most people rely on crop production and animal husbandry practices.
  • jessicaallen33 - One reason agriculture helps with food security is because farmers can withstand drought conditions better. Since their agricultural practices rely on irrigation instead of rainfall, they have less risk at incurring adverse consequences due to drought conditions than many other sectors--especially subsistence-based farming families who depend entirely on rainwater.

  • Boron, one of the rarer and more underrated mineral nutrients needed for healthy plant growth, is abundance found in most fertilizers we use on our fields today. Yet the majority of these chemicals also leech into ground water and accumulate there - not a good thing when you consider that indoor plants can't survive without boron. That's why it's so essential to use organic plant foods or borax-free fertilizers. https://borates.today/boron-helps-your-garden/

  • Campbell_Carol - Boron plays a key role in plant metabolism, growth, development and yields. Various studies have shown that boron deficiency can significantly lower the content of some essential oils, plant hormones and other plant compounds namely ellagic acid.
  • jessicaallen33 - Plants rely on sugars for energy during light-dependent or light-independent reactions, both of which occur in the presence of chlorophyll molecules. While these reactions take place in different parts of cells - powers at the cytoplasmic level versus through Photosystem II at the chloroplast level - they both depend on boron's role in strengthening cell membranes.
  • Anderson_Mark2248 - Boron deficiencies can impair plant nutrition, one primary reason why boron is classified as an essential micronutrient. Boron deficiency compromises the function of proteins that are necessary to conduct photosynthesis. Without boron, plants cannot produce all their required sugars and will experience slow growth, yellowing leaves and necrotic spots on leaf tissue.

  • Recently, ZBE has come up with their own fire retardant, but so far there have been limited success in the market. Some are wondering if it is because they are not safer than other methods of fire suppression. The answer to this question is that ZBE's product might be just as safe. A standard way to measure fire safety is by examining the amount required for one square foot of material under a candle-flame to self-extinguish. The composite Arctra Plus average score was 155 seconds, which falls well within an "acceptable" range on the Australian R rating scale (i.e., > 40 seconds). https://borates.today/boron-zinc-borates-fire-retardants/

  • jessicaallen33 - The market of new products is competitive. Innovation often out speeds the ability of public policy to catch up. Safety regulations for chemicals are meant to assess the dangers they pose, but new hazards can crop up before safety officials know about them. And sometimes, decades after a chemical has become broadly used or even banned, some toxicologists will find that it was dangerous all along -- and point out that society would have been better served if regulators had spotted its danger more quickly. Let's hope this isn't the case with ZBE Fire retardants (with chloroBDE as their main ingredient).
  • Campbell_Carol - I personally haven't seen any evidence of this either way, which might mean nobody is using fire retardants on their products at all! If we don't find out any more information soon, we may never get answers about why not many companies are adopting these new developments.
  • Anderson_Mark2248 - I don't think the market has yet adapted to the ZBE Fire retardant. Sure, a lot of people know about it and can identify it by name, but there haven't been many companies that have made products with it in great numbers because there's been an assumption that people either could or would want to use fire retardants when using their products.

  • The aerospace industry is undergoing tremendous change. The last decade has seen enormous growth in composite material usage, leading to lighter and stronger aircraft. As the use of composite materials continues to evolve, the industry will rely less on nickel-based alloys, such as titanium and aluminum. Boron carbide makes composites both lighter and stronger than titanium or aluminum. https://borates.today/boron-aerospace-defence/

  • Campbell_Carol - Boron carbide can be found in aluminum alloys for aircraft trop engines which are being explored more every day due to how difficult it's become to find alternatives (we're quickly depleting our supply of aluminum which means we must turn towards other materials).
  • jessicaallen33 - Boron Carbide gives it tons of mechanical properties when alloyed with metals, is resistant to rusting or corrosion, is tougher when compared to metal alloys, and when used in the aerospace industry is crucial for aircraft engine parts.
  • Anderson_Mark2248 - NASA research suggests that “By using boron carbide instead of solid aluminum for a 20% volume fraction of the 2-D woven fabric in a typical aircraft skin’s ballistic layer, a 10% reduction in weight can be achieved while maintaining initial crashworthiness performance requirements."

  • Boron is an essential nutrient that can help restore hormonal balance between estrogen and progesterone in the female body.

    Boron has been shown to directly support estrogen production in some women, while diminishing estrogens in others. For these reasons, it is important for anyone who suspects they might be low on boron or are considering supplementation with boron to work closely with their doctor or nutritionist to ensure safety and efficacy of taking this mineral on a long-term basis. In addition, as boron heavily influences hormones, those using prescribed medications should collaborate closely with their physician before making any changes to supplementing with boron or other nutrients that impact hormone levels. https://borates.today/boron-yeast-infection/

  • davidgarcia27 - Boron can be found in fruits such as pears and apples but these foods lack the concentration necessary for boron to offer any significant benefit.
  • Anderson_Mark2248 - Boron is a chemical element that has not been researched nearly as thoroughly as essential micronutrients such as calcium, phosphorus, and iron. This is important because boron deficiencies have been linked to a variety of health problems including low bone mineral density, osteoporosis, joint pain, poor cognitive function with an increased risk for neurodegenerative disease in men and women.

  • For starters, boron trifluoride is not safe to use in any capacity if you don't know what you're doing. It reacts very violently with water and other substances, meaning that it could produce dangerous toxic gases that would fill the space around it. And because its atoms are so small but so powerful when reacting with other molecules at high temperatures, you do have to be careful about inhalation when working with the material in confined spaces. https://borates.today/boron-trifluoride/

  • davidgarcia27 - The fatal dose of boron trifluoride is a well-known thing- one to two grams, and this is why it must be handled with gloves and other protection equipments. You can generally tell when someone's been around boron trifluoride if they smell like wonderful marzipan, but in all seriousness don't risk having it touch your skin at all since these fumes could kill you.
  • Anderson_Mark2248 - Boron trifluoride is also used for cleaning nuclear radiation spills by inhalation or direct contact with surfaces. Make sure you wear self-contained breathing apparatus masks when handling it!
  • Campbell_Carol - Boron Trifluoride can be used in place of ozone to create rapid gas sterilization. It is also important for absorbing neutrons within the reactor, which keeps the uranium close to critical mass and prevents fuel breakaways.

  • An energy management system can save you a lot of money. In fact, the typical industrial plant surveys have been scoring an average savings of 20% on their operating expenses through installing a successful energy management program.
    In other words, your business will be able to do more with less. But there's a catch--the payback period for these investments often takes two to five years! That's why it is important to choose carefully, because some systems offered by unscrupulous or inexperienced companies might take too long and not make enough money back in return. https://borates.today/boron-energy-management/

  • jessicaallen33 - It can be costly to buy a solar panel, but if the payback is 10 years, that's even better than an efficient fluorescent bulb. Why? The average efficiency of a solar panel is 30% - so it takes 3 panels to produce as much as one efficient fluorescent. Fluorescent bulbs have been used for decades and now they're being replaced by LEDs. LEDs also have problems with durability and too costly. But the latest Philips LED lasts 25 times longer then other LEDs? Then there are other things that should be taken into consideration- how does one generate power in the village where there are no reliable power grids? Solar technology could be developed in India at half cost - because labour costs are cheap- unlike China.
  • Anderson_Mark2248 - It will also help pinpoint where the energy-sucking culprits are — for example, laptops left on standby mode in a closet.
  • davidgarcia27 - Energy management systems can make your home smarter, more comfortable and even easier to keep clean. An energy monitoring system may be able to tell you how much power is coming from the grid or another source, such as solar panels or wind turbines.

  • It's a sign of a low-quality life. Libido is a product of the brain, and when you're feeling good about your life it will be high. Sex, for many people, is an integral part of their identity. Low sex drive also often correlates with weight problems and negative emotions which both hurt health and quality of life. Healthier bodies may produce more natural libido chemicals that lead to higher sex drive. In other words, it might be time to start making some healthier food choices in order to have a higher libido! https://borates.today/boron-increase-libido-fruit-juice/

  • Anderson_Mark2248 - For example, diabetes can cause high blood sugar among other things which lead to loss of sexual function in men/loss of reproductive function in women due to hormonal imbalance etc.
  • jessicaallen33 - If your hormone levels were balanced before but now they're not then it's probably worth looking into potential causes for hormonal change. Stress, diet, lack or sleep can all contribute to lowered levels of one or more hormones.
  • davidgarcia27 - When the hormones that regulate libido are out of balance, it's not uncommon to feel like you have a low sex drive. These hormones include testosterone (male) and estrogen (female). A lot of times people will find their libido is out of whack because something in their life has changed.

  • Libido is sexual drive or interest. It can result in pleasurable sensations and desires for sex, including both the physical act of sex and the romantic attachments that surround it. Female libido often fluctuates due to hormones, but this also varies depending on age, lifestyle, stress levels and many other factors.

    One key hormone that has an effect on male libido is testosterone which can decline with age (after all besides muscle tissues our brain tissue lose functioning cell connections). Boron supplements are one supplement which has been research to potentially raise testosterone levels by boosting luteinizing hormone production in the anterior pituitary gland of the hypothalamus gland.

  • jessicaallen33 - This does not mean that male mouse sexuality is parallel with human sexual behavior however, so please exercise caution when using these findings to speculate about boron deficiency reflexes on our libidos!
  • Campbell_Carol - One factor which has been found to significantly affect men's interest in sex is boron deficiency. Borax was used as a substitute for boron in laboratory mice and resulted in male mouse infertility problems including very low libido levels.
  • davidgarcia27 - Libido is defined as one's sex drive or motivation to have sex. Whilst it's known that libido levels can decline with age, there are other factors which can affect them too, for example the need to use the bathroom, being tired or even watching TV.

  • Boron is a natural, non-toxic mineral that can help increase crop yields.
    However, it's most effective if combined with adequate quantities of Potassium and other micronutrients. So while boron supplements should be given to crops in appropriate amounts to ensure the plant receives all the nutrients it needs for growth and quality, they should not be used as a substitute for good soil management techniques such as composting or adjusting pH levels post planting by adding lime to improve fertilisation and nutrient uptake. https://borates.today/boron-in-agriculture/

  • Anderson_Mark2248 - Boron has many roles in the body of a plant, such as enhancing root strength and developing pollen grains into viable seeds that will produce pollen tubes of high quality.
  • Campbell_Carol - You may be surprised to learn that boron is essential for plants and crops. Boron, like other nutrients such as nitrogen, is taken up by plant roots and transported throughout the plant before it can help make food.
  • davidgarcia27 - Boron helps regulate how well sugars are transported from leaves to other parts of a plant, helps protect against diseases that affect cell walls, assists with root development and may improve uptake of nitrogen from soil for use by plants yielding better quality tomatoes and strawberries.
  • jessicaallen33 - For plants, boron is the only micro-nutrient essential in relatively large quantities (in the order of a few milligrams per kilogram). Borax functions as an "honest man" fertilizer - one that runs straight through a plant and really sticks to it if applied externally. The boron compound found in borax is readily available for the plant to take up.

Consuming excess boron will have varying effects on health. Too much can lead to thinning bones, kidney stones, loss of appetite, diarrhea and vomiting.
  • Anderson_Mark2248 - Studies have shown that boric acid can cause diarrhea, nausea, and vomiting. Prolonged ingestion of high doses of this substance can lead to skin ulceration and necrosis, irritant dermatitis, stomatitis (inflammation inside the mouth), esophagitis, and excessive weight loss.

  • Boron nitride, is an important brittle ceramics. The high hardness at room temperature of boron nitride makes this material attractive to many industries with abrasive requirements.

    Boron nitride's high hardness coupled with low thermal conductivity make it an extremely good material for use as a protective coating on metal parts or as metallic coatings on surfaces with extreme abrasion resistance where there are no bake-off issues.

  • One of the key features of electric vehicles is that they are cheaper to maintain than their petrol or diesel counterparts. The high-voltage motors in EVs are much simpler than the multiple gears found in an internal combustion engine, and require less attention for ongoing maintenance. Although there is still some ongoing research to achieve parity between EVs and ICEs, several studies have shown that current EV economics offer significant cost savings over time, because service intervals can be 10 times (1 million miles) longer than traditional ICE cars. https://borates.today/nissan-ev-battery/

  • Campbell_Carol - Younger generations are more willing to make sacrifices today for future benefits tomorrow. This may cause less attachment to material goods like cars or homes as previous generations. These changes in attitudes are a strong driver for sustainable transportation solutions.
  • Anderson_Mark2248 - Electric vehicles produce zero tailpipe emissions and have lower operating costs than gas-powered cars, both of which benefit the environment.
  • jessicaallen33 - Batteries need expensive rare earth metals and near earth minerals like neodymium and dysprosium, lithium and boron to function effectively. This means that the prices of these metals will likely increase as demand increases for electric cars, making them less affordable unless auto manufacturers can find innovative solutions to reduce costs through advanced energy solutions.
  • davidgarcia27 - There are several factors that are paving the way for the growth of the EV market. First, high-end models are becoming increasingly popular, meaning brands like Tesla will create a bigger market for less-expensive EVs down the line. Moreover, national regulators will begin to incentivize purchase of electric vehicles in order to fight climate change and decrease air pollution. Given all this data it is reasonable to think EV growth can reach 20% by 2020, 45% by 2025 and eventually 67% by 2030.

  • Campbell_Carol - Most likely not. It's probable that Rose Mill Company sells borates because there's little regulation, there are big gaps in the industry knowledge, and because it might appeal to customers who want to buy environmentally friendly products (aka "greenwashing"). However, rose mill company is most likely not a leader in the topic of boron products which would cause a greater accountability among their suppliers and closely monitor production processes.
  • jessicaallen33 - For example, if you want to know about commodities trading boron products is one good place to start-- but is it enough information? Would CATs from every continent with a marketplace constitute a leader in boron trading?

  • Implants typically use titanium as their primary material because it is easy to shape, inert to body tissues, resistant to corrosion in the bone environment, and strong enough for most orthopedic applications. Implantation is usually rather easy on your body's cells. Proteins are left alone by the implant material until they reabsorb back into the bloodstream about two weeks after implantation--that means that there is no need for any antibiotics or extraction tools when you get an implant. The only risks associated with implants are related to how well your joint can accommodate a new joint replacement - if you have arthritis elsewhere in your joint, then some additional modifications may be necessary. https://borates.today/boron-solutions-electronics/

Some of the abilities of graphene are being able to be used as a capacitor, replacing silicon in microchips, light absorption which allows for solar power cells to have more efficiency, and acting as a selective barrier allowing certain substances or molecules to pass through its wall while other ones cannot. On top of that, it is the thinnest and possibly most lightweight material ever created!
  • Campbell_Carol - One important property is having low density and high tensile strength (over 100 times greater than steel). Boron makes graphene flexible and exceptionally strong which helps make all those other functionalities possible.
  • Anderson_Mark2248 - Boron atoms combined with graphene-based materials when combined, generates an electric field. Moreover, when boron is in contact with oxygen or hydrogen molecules, it becomes very good at receiving electrons. Therefore when boron is combined with graphene - even better properties are observed. Graphene reacts to changes in the electric field which allows it to be robustly changed into various shapes that can also conduct electricity like wire found in electrical circuits.

  • Rio Tinto has set out an ambitious decarbonization strategy. As the world continues to switch from fossil fuels to clean alternatives, Rio Tinto anticipates it will be in a position to supply the essential ingredients for the next generations of technologies that are shaping this change. They are investing substantially in these sustainable minerals which are key materials for things like electric vehicle batteries, photocatalytic coatings, low-carbon biofuels and much more. As part of this strategy they have announced their investment in Lithium Americas’s big new processing plant “with final investment decision expected later this year” following on from its joint venture lithium mine project in Argentina with POSCO. https://borates.today/rio-tinto-decarboinzation/

  • Boron is a mineral that helps plants use nitrogen to produce proteins and reduces the damage from environmental stresses such as high salinity. The U.N. estimates boron deficiency affects nearly half the world's population directly through inadequate diet- mainly young children and pregnant women because they don't get enough food containing boron-containing compounds or rich in other minerals needed to regulate body functions without boron.

    In order to enhance your chances of being food secure, you should include foods high in boron content such as beans , seeds, fruits, vegetables. https://borates.today/boron-food-security-force-good/

  • Anderson_Mark2248 - Another benefit of it is that it provides better machinability when compared with steels that have a similar hardness. These properties mean that boron-containing carbon steels are used where the base steel meets most properties, such as wear resistance, but the rigidity is too low.
  • Campbell_Carol - Automakers have taken advantage of these tensile strengths provided by boron, since it also helps to make the chassis lighter to address fuel efficiency with new vehicle legislation as well as increased fuel prices.
  • davidgarcia27 - One of the important effect of boron on the steel is the enhancement of hardenability. It gives the exact same effect of the extended ability in strength enhancement as other more expensive elements, which provides a much larger quantity.

  • Boron is an element that imparts very strong thermal properties to the structure of glass. The more boron in glass, the more resistant it becomes to temperature changes. It only takes about 1% boron for this property to emerge compared to 3% or 4% for traditional soda-lime glass, so all products made with borosilicate also have some level of thermal resistance. https://borates.today/borosilicate-glass-industrial-applications/

  • Nuclear power plants use boron to help prevent the build-up of corrosion in the control rods, which help regulate the nuclear reaction. Boron is a neutron moderator, meaning that it absorbs neutrons and stabilizes nuclear reactions by slowing them down. It has been used in many U.S., Russian, and Canadian reactors for a long time because it effectively prevents a number of different types of corrosion in materials such as steel and concrete from occurring when these substances are exposed to radiation from the nuclear reactor core. https://borates.today/nuclear-energy-boron/

  • Campbell_Carol - Boron is used in nuclear power plants to control (slow down) the reaction of neutrons with uranium atoms. Boron, borates, and other chemical substances are typically contained in heavy water to increase its effectiveness for slowing down the reaction. By including boron in heavy water, it increases the reactivity of nitrogen which has a strong affinity for deuterium (and thus removes hydrogen). Eventually this results in making it more difficult for deuterium to participate in fusion reactions that eventually produce heat or energy. Nuclear reactors typically rely on uranium fuel rods that fission at about 75% efficiency; without boron the rate would be closer to 95%.
  • davidgarcia27 - Boron-10 can be used as an intermediate coolant at some facilities for cooling hot water back down into steam again after use, which prevents reactors from overheating if one part becomes too hot or needs maintenance. This method of using boron is very reliable because it doesn't affect humans so much but can provide excellent protection for central control systems by blocking radiation.
  • jessicaallen33 - A chemical known as boron is used in nuclear power plants for different purposes, one of which is to keep fuel rods safe.

  • Boron helps in oil recovery directly by improving the mobility of oil molecules through low viscosity/high pH water. This allows the boron to improve contact with the soil matrix leading to enhanced release of "locked" oil. It also provides protection against acids which are found at high concentrations in recently spilled crude oils. https://borates.today/how-boron-help-oil-recovery/

  • jessicaallen33 - It is an essential trace element for humankind, animals and plants. Borax which can be readily sourced from mines, creates a regulating effect on water pH - reducing acidity in groundwater supplies. Contamination with certain heavy metals has been well researched too, revealing how this affects physiological processes within living organisms including cattle, poultry and humans when ingested over time.
  • Campbell_Carol - Boron can be used when drilling for oil, which helps in recovering the oil because it's applied in what's called the "barrier fluid.". The boron can generally increase well production by around 40%. It does this by preventing geological formation fluids from entering the tubing system of the well. And yes, boron is a mineral that comes from plants and animals and humans like to eat too!

  • Boron is essential for hypersonic planes because it controls the orientation of chemical bonds that are needed to produce desired engineering features. When cutting through high resistance materials, boron assists in preventing defects from forming on cutting surfaces. It also promotes clean shearing action so guiding clearances can be minimized or eliminated. These two functions reduce the amount of heat generated during cutting which protects against surface degradation and increases tool life.

    You can read similar contents on how boron actively plays an improtant role in making these powerful hypersonic flights fly high around the vast arenas of our sky from this website.

  • davidgarcia27 - boron also helps in providing stability to the hypersonic planes.
  • Anderson_Mark2248 - It's known as a necessity for hypersonic flights because it can create the necessary dense skin to protect from the heat that occurs from those speeds. This substance, boron, is situated just outside of diamonds on the periodic table and so has a high melting point. It also has a low electrical conductivity, which means it doesn't cause problems with radio signals or metals in electronics. Boron oxides have been experimentally used as heat resistant skins for space capsules and other applications requiring resistance to extreme heat. They have also been found to be an effective self-healing coating for spacecraft body panels which could potentially reduce both weight and complexity of spacecraft assembly/disassembly cycles.
  • jessicaallen33 - Boron is important for hypersonic flights because it plays a crucial role in the generation of lift on an aircraft. It is one of the substances that deprives air molecules of their electrons, lowering air density just by its presence in the atmosphere. Further, it can be used to cool molten metal in shaping operations where there are abnormally high demands on refrigeration capacity, or when properties other than cooling are required, such as lightness and rapid solidification with low diffusion rates. Boron is also used extensively as a catalyst in organic reactions due to its great stability towards heat and elevated temperatures.
  • Campbell_Carol - Boron is important for hypersonic flights because it enhances the performance of metallorganic fuel under conditions of high heat and density.

  • Electric vehicle is a common things in Norway. In the early 1980s, 35% of all cars on Norwegian roads had been sold as electric. In fact, the boron price for Norway has been historically cheaper than other countries.

    To alleviate this difference, Norway subsidizes electricity prices to levels significantly lower than those in neighbouring countries.

    In addition, affordable Norwegian electric vehicles have become a common sight on their roads and highways. For example, Tesla's Model 3 has a starting price of $28,000 in the United States which rises to 120% more at the current exchange rate or 118% more converting from NOK from today's currency conversion rates.

    On the other hand if you live in Norway that same car starts at 115500NOK (~$120000USD) with an equivalent increase percentage for buying power inflation by currency conversion rates.

  • Many studies have looked at whether there is a correlation between boron levels and climate change, one found that the correlation to be positive. This means that as boron goes down, climate changes negatively because of increasing global temperatures. It's suspected that many plants use boron as a defense against herbivores, pests and pathogens; decreasing quantities can harm plant health leading to increased population rates of these organisms which could in turn create an unstable ecosystem.

    Scientific evidence also suggests that warmer climates speeds up natural processes like wind and water erosion which would lead to higher concentrations of dissolved solids (which points to more dissolved nutrients) which has been identified as another impact on plants using boron for defense.

    You can find out more about the active role played by the boron in reducing climate change from this website.

  • Anderson_Mark2248 - One of the leading causes to climate change is habitat destruction. Pollution is another, but it’s mostly indirect due to its contribution to climate change. Additionally, additives in the food you eat can cause changes in your body chemistry which leads to hormones being released less often (thus causing longer menstrual cycles and lack of ovulation). When taking boron supplements for this purpose, it turns out that they stop the release of these pesky hormones that contribute heavily to poor quality eggs or infertility altogether! Boron also helps with calcium retention, which has been linked with developing osteoporosis later on in life. As far as studies go there are few rigorous ones at this point but anecdotal evidence seems promising enough.
  • jessicaallen33 - The element boron plays a unique role in climate change. Near the earth's surface it is almost entirely adsorbed by soil particles, which has two major effects for climate change: First, the mineral forms stable carbonates with calcium and magnesium so poor countries don’t have to mine expensive fossil fuels to produce cement; Second, boron helps remove CO2 from the atmosphere by reacting with cations like hydrogen calcite.
  • davidgarcia27 - The major cause of global warming is carbon dioxide, so reducing the amount of CO2 will help. Boron reduces the production of CO2 on Earth by acting on plant stomata and creating a self-regulating effect that accounts for approximately 40% of the CO2 absorption on Earth's surface. Imagine if climate change had no negative effects!
  • Campbell_Carol - Boron plays an important role in reducing the damage of climate change. With it's extreme rarity in Earth's crust, boron in natural form is incredibly hard to come by. Scientists have measured the concentration of boron within soil samples and they've found that levels are very low with high variability between soils. Plants then take up boron into their roots with one mechanism being the dissolution of crystalline layers.The topsoil has additional protection against global warming because organic carbon binds to any percolating rainwater-carrying boric acid, but what worries scientists is when all this disappears due to erosion or tillage, or when farmers need more fertilizer for crops.

  • The use of boron, a chemical element commonly used in the production of steel and other hard materials, has also been touted as a way to conserve energy. As cars may have up to 80 gallons of fuel inside them, boron could soak up this excess heat from engines - before it even reaches passengers' hot seats. In turn, cars would stay cooler because their interior temperature isn't absorbed by the metal frame.

    That's why companies like Toyota are looking into finding new ways to keep drivers from sweating while driving - not just for air quality purposes but because prolonged exposure to high temperatures can be dangerous long-term.

  • There has been significant research in the area of boron-hydride in lithium ion batteries, with the ultimate goal of making them lighter and more powerful. The Dutch technology company, Holland Battery Technology BV (HBT), is working to develop a battery using cheap and readily available materials that will revolutionize electric vehicles, providing longer range for cheaper cost. They are also developing methods for recycling boron-hydride.

    Boron can store up to 10% more charge than current lithium-ion EV batteries. It is inexpensive and it recycles easily because boron reacts with water or other mild acids. This was possibly achieved by the car maker Nissan.

    Boron is an important component for farming success. It helps crops grow and harvest more productively, ensuring that farmers get their desired yield from each seed or plant placed in the soil with adequate amounts of this element present. Inadequate levels can lead plants into unhealthy states which decrease growth rates during maturity periods as well; both when first planted but also once mature/harvested - resulting in less biomass production overall.

  • There are many ways to power your home. You could go with a renewable resource like wind or solar, but they come at great initial investment costs that make them less practical for smaller businesses or households looking to save money on their utility bills this year. Nuclear plants don't have these limitations making it an economical choice.
