  • Boronated fiberglass is a type of fiberglass that has been treated with boron, typically in the form of boric acid or borosilicate glass. https://borates.today/boronated-fiberglass/

    Treatment of the fibers with boron makes them more electrically conductive and therefore more resistant to static discharge and electromagnetic interference (EMI).

    Boronated fiberglass is commonly used in EMI shielding applications, such as in computer rooms and for military vehicles.

    It can also be used in radar absorber applications and as an antistatic agent in the textile industry.

  • The Seeking Alpha seeks to report that given its recent valuation of over $1 billion, it might seem like NASDAQ: FEAM is an expensive stock.
    However, if you take a closer look at NASDAQ: FEAM's latest financial report, it becomes clear that there is more to the story than meets the eye.
    According to the NPV analysis in this report, the estimated value of the Fort Cady project is over $2 billion.
    What this means is that just over half of this project's estimated value has already been priced into NASDAQ: FEAM's current valuation.
    This suggests that there may still be ample room for additional upside in the company's share price, making it a potentially attractive investment opportunity for those who are willing to take on a bit more risk.

  • D.A. Davidson & Co. reports that NASDAQ: FEAM's Fort Cady solution mining process relies on two key outside inputs: MOP and sulfuric acid. The company is currently evaluating the production of sulfuric acid in-house, as this could potentially provide scale benefits. ISL mining has a lower carbon intensity than that of open-pit operations associated with competitors, due in part to access to geothermal power/heat, potential in-house sulfuric acid production, direct access to onsite water via an unburdened aquifer, and zero diesel-powered mine trucks.

  • Boron is a mineral that is found in small quantities all over the world. Unlike other minerals, however, boron is not used in large-scale industries or for major construction projects. Instead, it is primarily used in agricultural and consumer products. As a result, the boron market has always been relatively small and stable. However, this may be changing in the near future. With the rise of electric vehicles (EVs), demand for boron is expected to increase significantly. This is because boron is an essential component of EV batteries. One company that is well-positioned to benefit from this trend is NASDAQ: FEAM.

  • Today, not only because of the ongoing Ukraine-Russia conflict that the global supply chains for critical minerals like lithium, boron, uranium and copper have been affected pretty badly, but the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic has also paralysed the supply chains due to the subsequent lockdowns being reimposed across the world, including in Shanghai, China, but there is one such mining company that is based in the US, which is looking to step-in to solve this sudden demand for minerals. The name of that company is 5E (NASDAQ: FEAM) headquartered in Southern California. They believe that the demand for such minerals has been due to their heavy use in electric vehicles, food security, national security and much more.

  • There are only four known major regions in the world with large-scale borates deposits: Anatolia (Turkey), California (USA), the Central Andes (South America), and Tibet (Central Asia), with Turkey holding 70 percent to 75 percent of the world's total boron reserves.

    Borate deposits are connected with unusual geological conditions such as volcanic and plate tectonic activity, arid temperatures, and evaporated water bodies, which explains why there are just a few places on Earth where boron is found in economically viable proportions.

  • Do you know that solar cells often comprise of two types of semiconductors. They are p-type and n-type silicon.

    The p-type is produced by adding either boron or gallium atoms that have one less electron in their outer energy level.

    The n-type silicon is produced by adding phosphorus, an atom with one extra electron on its outer level vs. silicon.

    5E Advanced Materials, Inc. is slowly positioning itself to become a global leader in BORON+ advanced materials whose focus is on enabling decarbonization.

  • Boranes are hydride compounds in which boron is bonded to hydrogen.

    These compounds can occur as monomers, dimers, or clusters. https://borates.today/boranes-borane-clusters/

    Borane clusters are three-dimensional assemblies of boron and hydrogen atoms that are held together by covalent bonds.

    Boranes have a wide range of applications, including use as rocket fuels, plasticizers, and vulcanizing agents.

    Some borane clusters can also be used as catalysts.

    In addition, boranes have been studied for their potential use in medicine, specifically as cancer therapies.

  • Boron is an essential nutrient for plants, and it has been shown to be beneficial for increasing crop yields in both field and greenhouse studies. https://borates.today/global-food-dynamics/

    The reason for this is that boron helps plants develop a strong stem and root system.

    Boron also helps cells uptake water and nutrients, which is important for plant growth in soils that are low in moisture or nutrients.

    In addition to its benefits for plant growth, boron has also been shown to have health benefits for humans.

    Boron has been linked with decreased bone loss, reduced inflammation, and improved cognitive function.

  • Hypersonic flight is a term used to describe aircraft or missiles that travel at speeds of Mach 5 or higher, which is five times the speed of sound. To put that into perspective, the cruising speed of a passenger jet is usually around Mach 0.8. So hypersonic flight allows aircraft and missiles to travel at much faster speeds than ever before. https://borates.today/hypersonic-flight-boron/ 

    One of the biggest benefits of hypersonic flight is that it can help reduce travel times significantly. For example, it currently takes about eight hours to fly from New York to London. But if planes were traveling in hypersonic mode, that trip could be reduced to as little as two hours.

  • It's important to have a good balance of minerals in your body to keep everything running smoothly.

    For example, calcium is necessary for strong bones and teeth, while magnesium is necessary for healthy muscle function.

    Boron is another mineral that is essential for human health, and it plays an important role in buffering pH levels. https://borates.today/boron-buffering/

    Buffer systems are crucial for maintaining stability in a variety of different chemical environments.

    In the body, they help to maintain a stable pH level by absorbing excess acids or bases. This helps to prevent the harmful effects that can occur when pH levels get too high or too low.

  • drLisatorres - Boron buffering is a process that helps to maintain pH balance in a plant's root system. By taking up boron and releasing it back into the soil as the plant takes up water, the buffering process helps to keep things steady and prevent drastic swings in pH levels. This is important because plants need a certain pH level in order to be able to take up nutrients from the soil. Without boron buffering, fluctuations in pH could make it difficult or impossible for plants to get the nutrients they need.
  • andrewjackson6626 - More research is needed to determine the full range of benefits that boron buffering may offer, but these early findings suggest that it could be a promising supplement for aging populations.
  • Kimberly_Adams2320 - Additionally, another study published in the "Journal of Trace Elements in Medicine and Biology" showed that boron supplementation improved bone health in postmenopausal women.
  • Anderson_Mark2248 - There isn't much research on boron buffering, but some studies have shown that it can be beneficial. For example, a study published in the journal "Gerontology" showed that supplementation with boron resulted in increased antioxidant status and decreased levels of oxidative stress in elderly participants.

  • There are a few potential ways to create radiationless hydrogen-boron fusion, but so far none of them have been able to produce more energy than is put in. https://borates.today/boron-laser-fusion/ 

    One way is to use lasers to heat the boron and hydrogen gas mixture until it becomes a plasma, which then causes the atoms to fuse together. 

    Another way is to use powerful magnets to compress the gas mixture until it reaches extremely high densities, which also causes fusion. However, both of these methods require more energy input than they produce in output, so they are not yet commercially viable.

    Some scientists are still working on developing radiationless hydrogen-boron fusion, and there's always the possibility that a breakthrough could be made in the future.

  • jessicaallen33 - Tesla is the only company producing electric vehicles with a range of more than 300 miles.
  • George851 - Tesla also uses aluminum in its car bodies because it conducts heat better than steel or iron; this reduces both weight and cost while improving performance significantly over other materials used in EV construction (such as carbon fiber). The result is an automobile that weighs less than any other luxury model on the market today without compromising safety or durability!
  • Anderson_Mark2248 - Tesla's cars are not just environmentally friendly, they're also technologically advanced. For example, Tesla has adopted lithium-ion battery technology that offers faster recharging times and greater energy density than traditional rechargeable batteries - meaning you can drive longer between charges.

  • Boron is known to help control nuclear radiation through a process called "boron neutron capture" (BNC). In this process, a boron atom absorbs a neutron from an unstable nucleus, which then causes the nucleus to become stable. This can help to prevent the release of harmful radiation. https://borates.today/boron-and-chernobyl/

    Boron is also known to play an important role in human health. It helps keep our bones healthy and strong, and may also help protect against heart disease and cancer.

  • People often identify boron with nuclear power plants in addition to uranium and plutonium, however there is another sort of radioactivity related with boron: cosmic ray radiation. It's one of various ways to keep radioactive material from spreading throughout a structure following a nuclear explosion. To prevent radioactive particles from impacting densely populated regions, scientists increase the amount of a type of particle known as boric acid near nuclear power plants. Neutron slowing stops nuclear fission from occuring quicker than it would ordinarily, preventing substantial quantities of energy from being released into the environment. https://borates.today/boron-protects-against-radiation/

  • Boron research in technological fields is usually focused on boron-10 isotopes, with the most important application being large-scale neutron radiography of piping systems. https://borates.today/boron-research-areas/. Borons are also used when lasers need to be cleaned or sterilized; they're used to pump up the laser's power by converting infrared light into excitation photons. The larger pumps can use liquid nitrogen but because liquid nitrogen doesn’t let enough energy escape, it has an increased risk for explosion up to 1 time per year versus around 50 times per year without liquid nitrogen.

  • Boron is the second-least abundant mineral in Earth's crust, after helium. It has several ecological applications, including its use as a plant micronutrient. The discussion about boron's potential to mitigate climate change comes down to how much of it can be safely added without significantly altering the acidity of rainfall or freshwater lakes. The European Union proposed that humans could consume up to 20mg per day before risking ecological changes - which would translate to an increase in an atmospheric concentration of less than 0.1%. https://borates.today/boron-and-climate-risk/
