  • Rechargeable Battery Research Paper

    illegal to throw batteries away in the garbage? Many people are unaware of this fact. In 1991, the state of North Carolina rendered it illegal to discard of lead-acid batteries in a landfill, incinerator or any other type of waste-to-energy facility. The purpose of this report is to provide you with information on rechargeable batteries so you will have a better understanding on the benefits of a recycling program and possible implementation. The main points I will cover are the types of rechargeable batteries, the recycling process, local businesses currently recycling, questionnaire results and recommendations on a recycling program. Types of Rechargeable Batteries In today’s society, there are many types of rechargeable batteries that many of us may not know about. Listed below are four different types of rechargeable batteries currently being used. In this section, I will cover: what each battery is, the products they are used by and their impact on the environment. 1. Lithium Ion • The first battery is the Lithium-ion battery, otherwise known as Li-ion. These batteries usually come as small dry-cell batteries,…

  • Nickel-Caadmium Batteries Advantages And Disadvantages

    NiCd is the chemical abbreviation for the composition of Nickel-Cadmium batteries, which are a type of secondary (rechargeable) batteries. Nickel-Cadmium batteries contain the chemicals Nickel (Ni) and Cadmium (Cd), in various forms and compositions. The nickel-cadmium battery, invented by Waldmar Jungner in 1899, offered several advantages over the then only rechargeable battery, lead acid, but the materials were expensive and the early use was restricted. Developments lagged until 1932 when…

  • Detrimental Effects Of Dissociated NMC On Aquatic Microorganisms

    As the dependence on lithium batteries increased with an elevated demand for clean energy, it became increasingly important to consider the effect of these batteries on the environment. Nickel manganese cobalt oxide (NMC) made up many of these batteries and could dissociate in aquatic environments. Prior experiments, such as Hang et. Al. 2016, reported detrimental effects of dissociated NMC on aquatic microorganisms.1 In the first part of this project, the objective was to explore and develop an…

  • Mobility Scooters Research Paper

    Buyers should be aware that some portable scooters (the smaller ones) do not have an adjustable rudder. Therefore, they must determine if the fixed position of the rudder is good for them. Batteries : Mobility scooters use 12-volt batteries to power the electric motor. The operating time of a scooter depends on the size of its batteries, and this is reflected in ampere-hours. In the lower range of scooters we find batteries 12Ah and the upper end 75 Ah. A powerful luxury scooter is probably…

  • Operating Principles In PEM Fuel Cell

    Chapter-III OPERATING PRINIPLE AND LOSSES IN PEM FUEL CELL The polymer membrane is the heart of the PEM fuel cell which has some unique features. It allows protons but it is impermeable to gases, and hence it is known as a Proton Exchange Membrane. The membrane, which is squeezed between two electrodes (electrically conductive carbon cloths or carbon fiber papers) acts as electrolyte. A layer of catalyst particles (platinum) is placed at the interface between the porous electrode and polymer…
