How to use non- ferrous metals in your own home
A Canadian scientist has devised a method for making metal from non-fertilised eggs, and said it could be a major advance in recycling.
“There are some challenges with using non-flourised eggs to make metals, and I think this is one of the first ways we have seen of using non fertilised eggs in a way that is environmentally friendly,” said Peter Fong, a chemist at the University of Alberta’s Faculty of Engineering.
The non-fluoride, non-petroleum egg formula is a very stable material that can be used in most of the manufacturing industries.
It’s made up of about a quarter of the protein in an egg.
It is made up from nonferrous and ferrous metal ions, and is stable, Fong said.
“It’s a good material for a variety of purposes.
It’s cheap to produce, and it’s a very good source of material for the construction industry.”
Fong is one the researchers behind the development of the new technology, which is currently undergoing testing.
Fong said the non-fat dry egg formula could be used for industrial processes.
“If you can’t get that kind of protein from eggs, then you might as well make your own, but this is a way of making it,” Fong told reporters in a press conference.
“We are going to make a material that’s not going to have any of the drawbacks of traditional egg production, which means it’s much more environmentally friendly.”
Feng said the material would not be used to make high-grade steel.
“You’re going to find it in the form of pellets that are about the size of a postage stamp,” he said.
The researchers are also working to improve the material’s performance.
“What we have now is a new process, which we’re calling a low-cost, low-density material, where you use less material than conventional egg production,” Fung said.FONG said his team will begin commercial production of the material in early 2018.
Fung is not the first person to produce the nonferric egg formula using non virgin egg proteins.
Feng’s team previously made a metal from the non virgin protein in a lab, and he said his work has shown that it is much more stable than conventional eggs.
Fang said his lab’s process is similar to that of a company that is trying to make steel from non virgin, non ferrous iron ore.
“The main difference is that we’re not trying to produce iron from non ferric materials,” he told reporters.
“Our process is really quite a bit more stringent than conventional processes, and we’re using non ferritic, non copper oxide (n-coCoO) as the substrate.”
N-CoO is a substrate, but we’re still using a copper alloy.
It has some advantages over ferric iron, but it’s still quite a long way from being suitable for steel production.
“Fang told reporters that the material is about a thousand times more stable and recyclable than conventional non-finishing egg proteins, and that he is confident the material will be available for commercial production by the end of the decade.
He said he has tested the material for about two years, and has not had any problems making it.”
A lot of the challenges are that it has very high surface area, but there are a lot of small, very small defects in the process, so it’s very difficult to see any defects in it,” he explained.
Fongs lab has not produced the nonfertile material in its laboratory yet.”
For the time being, we’re making it in a test batch, so we can be confident that we’ve got a material ready for commercial application,” he added.
The Canadian government has promised to introduce legislation to limit the amount of non-sustainable metals that can enter the country from the United States.
