  • Mining is one of the most important industries in the world, and it's also one of the most destructive.

    That's why it's so important that we find a way to do mining that is sustainable - that doesn't damage the earth or pollute our air and water. https://borates.today/sustainable-mining/

    There are several ways to make mining more sustainable. One way is to use closed-loop systems, which recycle water and recapture minerals from the waste products of mining.

    Another way is to use less harmful chemicals in mining processes.

    And finally, we can restore land that has been damaged by mining operations.

    All of these methods are important, but restoring land is probably the most important thing we can do to make mining more sustainable.

  • 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.

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.

  • In 2021, global consumption of boric acid equivalents (BAE; market standard measurement; boric acid is 17.5% boron by weight) stood at approximately 4.5M tonnes (~5.0MsT) with an estimated market value of $4.0B - 5.0B (at current market prices), as per few reports. One thing to keep in mind is that these estimates exclude downstream value-add. But, as the demand for boron is increasing at an alarming rate globally, 5E is strategically placed to answer this call with its wide range of BORON+ products.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • andrewjackson6626 - Extracting lithium from boron waste is a feasible process, and there are a few methods that could be used. The most common approach for extracting lithium from ore is the use of brine ponds. In this method, the ore is crushed and mixed with water, which releases the lithium ions. The mixture is then pumped into large evaporation ponds, where the water slowly evaporates, leaving behind a high concentration of lithium salts.
  • Kimberly_Adams2320 - Another approach is to reach the boron waste with potassium hydroxide to produce potassium tetraiodoborate, which can then be reacted with hydrochloric acid to yield lithium chloride. This latter reaction produces hydrogen gas, so it's important to have a way to capture and recycle the gas in order for the process to be economically feasible.
  • Anderson_Mark2248 - There are a few possible ways to extract lithium from boron waste. One method is to use an electrolytic cell to produce lithium metal by electrolyzing a molten mixture of boron and sodium chloride.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • drLisatorres - Rio Tinto is one of the world's largest mining companies. It has a long history of environmental destruction and human rights abuses. In recent years, however, the company has been trying to rebrand itself as a sustainable and responsible business. As part of its new strategy, Rio Tinto has pledged to reduce its carbon emissions by 50% by 2025. Critics say that Rio Tinto's new strategy is nothing more than greenwashing. They argue that the company is only making these pledges to improve its public image and that it will not actually follow through on them. Others argue that Rio Tinto's commitments are a good first step and that the company should be praised for taking them seriously.

  • drLisatorres - There is some evidence that suggests boron may help to fight pancreatic tumors. In one study, laboratory mice were given boron and researchers found that the size of the tumors in the mice decreased significantly. More research is needed to conclusively say that boron can help to prevent or treat pancreatic tumors, but the early results are promising.
  • Kimberly_Adams2320 - The mechanism by which boron may help to fight pancreatic tumors is not yet fully understood, but it is thought that it may help to inhibit the growth of cancer cells and/or reduce inflammation. More research is needed to determine whether or not boron can be effective in fighting pancreatic tumors in humans.
  • andrewjackson6626 - There is some preliminary research indicating that boron may help to fight pancreatic tumors. In a study published in the journal Pancreatology, researchers found that rats treated with boron had significantly smaller pancreatic tumors than those not treated with boron.

  • Anderson_Mark2248 - Boron is a very light, versatile, and sustainable material that could theoretically be used to create a more energy-efficient form of fuel. However, there are still many challenges that need to be overcome before this type of fuel can become a reality. For example, researchers need to figure out how to efficiently store boron fuels and how to best distribute them. There is also still much research needed into the safety and efficacy of boron fuels.
  • smithjamess221 - There is a lot of excitement around boron fuel as a potential new superfuel. But there are still many unknowns about this type of fuel and whether it could ever be commercially viable.
  • drLisatorres - Boron fuel might seem like a promising alternative to traditional fuels, but there are a number of challenges that would need to be overcome before it could be put into widespread use. For example, boron is not very efficient at releasing energy compared to other fuels. It also has a high melting point, which makes storage and transportation more difficult.
  • andrewjackson6626 - There is no such thing as a new super fuel. All fuels are essentially the same, composed of molecules that release energy when combined with oxygen. The only thing that makes one feel better than another is how efficiently it can be used to generate power. And that efficiency depends on a number of factors, including the design of the engine and the purity of the fuel.
