von Jürgen Vagt 12.05.22 Heute begrüßte ich Luise Müller-Hofstede von Circular bei den Zukunftsmobiltisten und Luise Müller-Hofstede verfügt schon über mehrere Jahre Erfahrungen in der Blockchain-Technologie. Seit ein paar Jahren wird die Blockchain-Technologie in einer Software bei Circulor verpackt und immer Kunden unter den Autohersteller greifen zu. Wir haben Anfang des Gespräches des über die Anwendungen der Blockchain-Technologie in der zukünftigen Mobilität gesprochen. Die Blockchain-Technologie gilt als kostengünstige, transparente und betrugssichere Lösung, um Transaktionen durchzuführen. Allein die Elektromobilität wird sehr viele mehr Abrechnungen und Transaktionen notwendig machen und hier könnte die Blockchain-Technologie eingesetzt werden. Batterien und die Lebensdauer Für die Batterien im Elektroauto und die damit verbundenen Nachhaltigkeitsprobleme entwickelt Cicular unter Luise Müller-Hofstede eine Lösung. Die Batterie im Elektroauto bringt einen CO2-Rucksack mit und die Batterie ist der wertvollste Teil im Elektroauto und nun stellt sich die Frage, wie man die Batterie am besten nutzt. Luise Müller-Hofstede hob hervor, dass beim Markthochlauf der Elektromobilität eine Gefahr besteht. Wenn immer mehr Elektroautos verkauft werden, dann könnten viele Batterien verschrottet werden und eine solche Entwicklung würde den Klimawandel beschleunigen. Elektromobilität leistet nur einen Beitrag zum Klimaschutz, wenn die Batterie möglichst lange genutzt werden kann und in einen erneuerbaren Kreislauf überführt wird. Hierfür bräuchte man aber ein allgemein akzeptiertes, betrugssicheres Dokument, welches die Leistungsdaten der Batterie erfasst und allen beteiligten Akteuren über die Lebensdauer und Qualität informiert. Deswegen hat der Bund in Form des Wirtschaftsministeriums den Batteriepass entwickelt und dieses Dokument basiert auf der Blockchain-Technologie. Luise Müller-Hofstede meint, dass jetzt erstmal die Grundlagen gelegt sind und in den nächsten Jahren wird das System mit dem Feedback der beteiligten Akteure verfeinert. Der Batteriepass hat viele Funktionen und man kann seine Funktionen mit dem TÜV-Zertifikat vergleichen und laut Luise Müller-Hofstede ist der Batteriepass der zentrale Baustein für das Batterie – Recycling, weil nur der Wert der einzelnen Batterie klar ist und einen definierten Wert hat, somit kann die Batterie im Recycling wieder nutzbar gemacht werden.

This episode of Over the Edge features an interview between Matt Trifiro and Ali Fenn, President of ITRenew. Ali is a dynamic and innovative executive with a track record of success in business development, sales and product management. Fenn's experience spans numerous technology areas, including: enterprise infrastructure and the broader software and applications stack, storage and data management, security, mobile applications, hardware, and consumer web applications and services. She is currently a board member of Virtual Power, and strategic advisor for Energy Internet Corporation as well as Pentatonic. In this episode Ali Fenn, President of ITRenew, a circular data center services company that provides secure decommissioning and Sesame recertified rack scale solutions, breaks down the journey of technology from pre-use to post-use, and analyzes the amount of carbon emission produced throughout its lifecycle. She also talks about creating a circular IT infrastructure, demystifying hyperscale hardware, and causes of the ‘lion's share' of carbon emissions. She ends the episode talking about a need for the world's collective effort in solving unsustainable IT infrastructure.---------Key Quotes:“They've [most companies] done a really good job at being efficient in the use phase, but supply chain is the next big place we all have to look at. It's the lion's share of carbon emissions. It's not just equipment, it's cement and construction and everything else that goes into the physical infrastructure.” “I do believe that it's this topic of sustainability and in the context of IT infrastructure: It's our global collective imperative to solve it. And, at the same time, it's a huge opportunity, right? Data center infrastructure is going to fuel the transition economy. It's a trillion dollar opportunity. This is not just sustainability, it is not a tax. It's an opportunity if we do it right.” “The idea here is to demystify hyperscale hardware and demystify open hardware. It doesn't have to be harder, but there is some work that goes into making it accessible to the broader markets. And that's the stuff that we do. We ultimately deliver it in a way that the enterprises can run super fast. And, that time-to-value is a big one, especially right now in the supply chain that we're in. You asked about the value proposition of this stuff, well, it's available. We're not manufacturing this stuff, right. So that's a huge advantage right now.”---------Timestamps:(02:30) Early on in Ali's career(03:25) First Company Ali Joined(04:00) Transfer to Infrastructure and Hardware(05:50) What does ITrenew do?(07:53) Data Center Sustainability and the ‘3 scope' terminology associated with carbon emissions(09:40) PUE - Power Usage Effectiveness(11:42) Hardware Footprints - Sustainability and Circularity(15:45) Hyperscale data centers(20:30) ITrenew and recycling vs. refurbishing(25:01) What is Sesame?(25:40) Data Security(29:38) Edge is Everywhere - computing impacting sustainability and equipment(33:21) Ecosystem Wide Collaboration and Data Center Sustainability(35:56) Supply chain data publication(36:45) TCO Levels(39:00) Rack Density(40:00) Business Model Innovation and Circular IT Infrastructure(42:30) Edge Computing Effects(45:15) Solving IT infrastructure --------Sponsor:Over the Edge is brought to you by Dell Technologies to unlock the potential of your infrastructure with edge solutions.

Andy discusses how everything in markets comes down to supply and demand. Logistics, contracts, and shipping are all essential factors in trade. Markets are complex and risk mitigation is important especially with the fluctuating prices of commodities. Sometimes margins are tight, and companies can easily lose money particularly if they're not hedged accordingly. Andy explains the mechanisms for hedging ,which gives both parties security around price. It's a matter of balancing a hedge versus the exposure to the commodity being sold. The recent activity in the nickel market is important for steel producers. He discusses some of the causes for the recent action in these markets. Banks are now heavily involved speculating in these markets, and we're seeing disconnects between what is physically available compared to what is promised. Paper is traded by speculators but physical supply is often entirely different. He explains what backwardation and contango are in commodity markets. Natural gas was supposed to be a transitionary energy supply for the green movement. Andy explains how the energy markets are badly functioning in Europe. Europe is now looking for alternative energy supplies but many of these 'solutions' bring their own problems. Russia will increase pipelines to China and China will continue to compete in the global markets. Russia may end up losing because they will only have a few customers. He discusses the models around green energy and why their won't be enough commodities to meet these goals. Alternatives will come as some metals become too expensive. People can become creative when commodities become over priced. We may see some producers become directly involved in the mining of key metals. Recycling will become increasingly important. Stocks will need to realize the impact of inflation. The Fed has tools but there not producing anything but disasters. Inflation will continue and the Fed is not the solution to fix our economy.

Starlink's new Portability feature brings internet to vanlifers - The Verge (01:02) Starlink's internet-from-SpaceX service has gone mobile with a new Portability feature.It costs an additional $25 each month, on top of monthly subscriptions that already start at $110 after a one-time hit of $599 to purchase the Starlink kit. Starlink subscribers can now take their “dishy” anywhere on their home continent that provides active internet coverage. That opens up connectivity to remote places that will likely never be covered by 5G  Starlink doesn't support use while driving yet, but the company says it's actively working on a solution for moving vehicles. Musk has previously tweeted about working on a power-efficient solution that can plug into a car's 12V cigarette lighter and still maintain connectivity. Starlink reportedly draws between 60-70W, an improvement on the 80-100W draw from just a year ago. Starlink is offering Portability on a “best effort basis,” the company says, with users at their registered service addresses receiving priority for network resources.   Rocket Lab launched and recovered a rocket mid-air in a world first | Interesting Engineering (05:31) Rocket Lab, a private aerospace firm, launched a Rocket Lab Electron rocket from Launch Complex 1A on Mahia Peninsula, New Zealand, at roughly 6:48 PM EDTPayload of 34 picosatellites and cubesats into orbit Less than 30 minutes after launch, the rocket's first stage was actually caught mid-air by a flying helicopter.They captured the rocket's drogue chute line. A few seconds after recovering the rocket, the helicopter pilot opted to release the rocket — which plummeted into the deep blue ocean, where it was picked up by a ship  From a tweet from Reuters' Joey Roulette: “Rocket Lab's Murielle Baker says the helicopter pilots [decided] to drop the rocket booster in the ocean after noticing "different load characteristics" than what they experienced during previous testing” Murielle Baker is Rocket Labs' Senior Communications Adviser This is real, it's happening. A flying helicopter successfully caught a first-stage booster rocket, in mid-air. This may not have been a full recovery and reuse of the rocket, but Rocket Lab has just taken us a major step closer to comparatively cheap ways of recycling used booster engines.   Lithium-ion recycler Li-Cycle lands $200 million to power future EVs | TechCrunch (09:54) Metals and fossil fuels behemoth Glencore is pumping $200 million into battery recycler Li-Cycle as part of a larger, symbiotic supply deal inked by the two firms. The Swiss materials giant, Glencore, will ship burnt-out batteries and scraps to Li-Cycle, which will recover the high-demand metals so they can be reused in electric vehicle batteries and other applications. Li-Cycle's Process:Shred spent batteries and use a water-based system, known as hydrometallurgical processing, to begin to break down the batteries. Hydrometallurgy involve the use of aqueous solutions for the recovery of metals from ores, concentrates, and recycled or residual materials In Li-Cycle's own hubs, they separate black mass into a variety of materials, including those that can be used to make new lithium-ion batteries. In this partnership, Glencore will be providing Li-Cycle with black mass for processing as well as manufacturing scrap. Securing a supply of scrap could be advantageous for the startup since it is easier to recycle than whole batteries. Why is Glencore doing this?Glencore has been advancing efforts to boost recycling of the batteries that power electric vehicles, including its  plans to build a U.K. plant as part of a deal to help Britishvolt Ltd. develop Britain's first large-scale EV battery plant. Electric automakers, mining companies and chemical suppliers are racing to control more supplies of materials that are key to transitioning the world to cleaner energy sources.Car manufacturers and industry analysts expect recycled batteries to play a vital role in addressing supply constraints over the long term. Why is battery recycling important?An estimated 62,000 tons of used EV and stationary storage packs reached their end of life last year, and that will rise to 4 million tons by 2035, according to BloombergNEF, Bloomberg's energy and data analysis unit.   Lunar Soil Can Be Used To Generate Oxygen and Fuel for Moon Astronauts   | SciTechDaily (14:17) Soil on the moon contains active compounds that can convert carbon dioxide into oxygen and fuels, according to a new study by scientists in China. Nanjing University material scientists Yingfang Yao and Zhigang Zou hope to design a system that takes advantage of lunar soil and solar radiation, the two most abundant resources on the moon.  After analyzing the lunar soil brought back by China's Chang'e 5 spacecraft, their research team found the sample contains compounds—including iron-rich and titanium-rich substances—that could work as a catalyst to make desired products such as oxygen using sunlight and carbon dioxide. How would this work?Mainly, the system uses lunar soil to electrolyze water extracted from the moon and in astronauts' breathing exhaust into oxygen and hydrogen powered by sunlight. Carbon dioxide exhaled by moon inhabitants is also collected and combined with hydrogen from water electrolysis during a hydrogenation process catalyzed by lunar soil. While the catalytic efficiency of lunar soil is less than catalysts available on Earth, The researchers are testing different approaches to improve the design, such as melting the lunar soil into a nanostructured high-entropy material, which is a better catalyst. In the end, the process yields hydrocarbons such as methane, which could be used as fuel.  The strategy uses no external energy but sunlight to produce a variety of desirable products such as water, oxygen, and fuel that could support life on a moonbase, the researchers say. The team is looking for an opportunity to test the system in space, likely with China's future crewed lunar missions.    New imaging tech promises cheap, handheld skin cancer scanner | New Atlas (19:09) A team of researchers from the Stevens Institute of Technology has demonstrated the effectiveness of a new kind of non-invasive skin cancer detection tool. Leverages a technology called high-resolution millimeter-wave imaging. Initial testing shows that it is 97 percent effective at detecting cancerous tissue and the researchers are now working to miniaturize the system into a low-cost handheld device.The device returns results in about 20 seconds! I should mention that this system was not tested on tissue in a lab, but on human subjects! The researchers recruited 71 patients with 136 suspicious skin lesions. Following assessment with the new high-resolution millimeter-wave imaging device the lesions were biopsied.This preliminary test showed the system had 98 percent specificity (meaning two percent of its results were false positives) and 97 percent sensitivity (meaning it accurately detected all but three percent of malignant cancers). Negar Tavassolian, a researcher working on the project, said their new system is not the first to use sophisticated imaging technology to automatically flag dangerous skin cancers.Those are  big, expensive, and require trained operators. This new technology is proposed to be engineered into a small, handheld device that can be used by doctors as part of a straightforward clinical checkup. Tavassolian states:“We're creating a low-cost device that's as small and as easy to use as a cellphone, so we can bring advanced diagnostics within reach for everyone… That means doctors can integrate accurate diagnostics into routine checkups, and ultimately treat more patients.” The current iteration of the device is far from portable but the researchers are confident handheld millimeter-wave diagnostic devices are possible.Tavassolian predicts within a few years a handheld skin cancer detection device could be manufactured for under US$100.

Oregon lawmakers passed a bill in 2021 to upgrade the state's recycling system — and get manufacturers of packaged goods to pay for a lot of the improvements. Lawmakers in Washington recently tried to do something similar. Even though the proposal didn't pass in the last legislative session, it built momentum for the concept of holding producers of plastic packaging responsible for recycling that material. Reporter Sam Wohlfeil recently dug into this topic for InvestigateWest and joins us to talk about it.

Marisa and Jake are a perfect couple. And Kate, their new lodger, is the perfect roommate—and not just because her rent payments will give them the income they need to start trying for the baby of their dreams. But no one is truly perfect. Kate doesn't seem to care much about personal boundaries and can occasionally seem overly-familiar with Jake. But Marisa doesn't let it concern her, knowing that soon Kate will be gone, and it will just be her, Jake, and their future baby.Conceiving a baby is easier said than done, though, and Jake and Marisa's relationship is put to the test through months of fertility treatments and false starts. To make matters worse, Kate's boundary-pushing turns into an all-out obsession—with Jake, with Marisa, and with their future child. In her quest to find out who Kate really is, Marisa might destroy everything she's worked so hard to create—her perfect romance, her perfect family, and her perfect self.When Elizabeth Day set out to write MAGPIE after her own experiences with IVF and miscarriages, she noticed that stories of fertility and the struggles women go through to become mothers weren't represented in accessible literary fiction.

The topic of sustainability and carbon fiber has long been a black eye on the bike industry, but one company in Tennessee — called Carbon Fiber Recycling, of all things — is seemingly turning that around. Old broken frames? Random components? Scrap uncured pre-preg? It's all good, according to CFR: just stick it all in its magic machine, and usable raw material comes out the other end. Best of all, the process is supposedly quite economical for everyone involved, there's almost no waste product produced, and the company has plans to ramp things up big-time. Sounds too good to be true? Maybe it is. But maybe it isn't.
