Per capita, Australians produce a reported 24 kgs of e-waste each year. Recycling e-waste plastics is particularly tricky as it is a mix of up to 20 different resin types, so separation, reuse and recycling becomes tricky.But combine some German smarts with a vision to be Australia's leading 'urban miner' and you get Australia's first e-waste plastic recycling facility that can separate and retain the valuable resins for re-use. https://www.bordermail.com.au/story/7654190/insight-into-new-factory-that-is-transforming-recycling/
Solid Rocket Propellant is one variety of the fuel that drives rockets skyward. Burning at more than 2,000 degrees Celsius, it is a complex, highly energetic and precise chemical mixture that can be cast in a variety of shapes and sizes. When a special formula containing an oxidiser and a fuel are combined, a highly combustible reaction creates the thrust to launch the fastest and most complex machines ever built.See https://www.amgc.org.au/project/ammonium-perchlorate-sovereign-manufacturing/
