Boron – A Critical Mineral

It is time Boron was recognized as a critcial mineral. Boron-based atomic clusters mimic rare earth metals, and in many cases, they are more abundant than rare-earth metals. Boron is the third most common element in the Earth's crust (after oxygen and silicon), which means it can be found practically everywhere, even if it is difficult to extract and mine for commercial purposes.

Boron Nitride

Boron nitride nanotubes are a relatively new technology with the potential to revolutionize many industries. Boron nitride is a ceramic material that can be used in high-temperature applications. Boron nitride is often used for insulation in the aerospace industry thanks to its ability to withstand extreme temperatures while still being lightweight.

Origins of Boron

Origins of Boron. Boron exists naturally in very small amounts on Earth. It is found mainly in the earth's crust in boric acid (HBO(OH)), but can also exist in compounds with various elements including fluorine, oxygen, and sodium. Boron makes up about 2.4% of the total of the crust.

What are Borates

Borates are minerals that naturally occur and contain boron, the fifth of the Periodic Table’s elements. Water, soil, and rock all contain trace amounts. They are vital for the growth of plants. Borates play a vital role in the manufacture of everything from ceramics to insecticides. You can find them naturally in the environment and they even occur naturally in our bodies.

Boron and Lithium the dynamic duo

Boron is often a great substitute for lithium. It has many industrial applications as compared to Lithium. It is an element that has many similarities to lithium, but also some key differences. Boron can be found in the earth’s crust and it exists naturally as boric acid. The two elements have similar properties such as melting points, boiling points, and lengths of atomic chains. They both react with water to form hydrogen gas, which makes them useful for hydrogen fuel cells.

An Introduction to Boron

The role of Boron has become much more strategic. Boron is now at the heart of tackling global warming, decarbonization, food security among other uses and applications. Borates Today has an initiative to bring awareness of Boron to the forefront of our thinking: We have only one planet. Resources are finite, and it is our joint responsibility to take action to make the world a better place for future generations.

Boron Health Benefits

Boron is an essential mineral for human health and in many cases, it cannot be obtained through diet alone. It has been found that boron deficiency can lead to bone diseases such as osteoporosis, arthritis or joint pain. Boron deficiency also leads to reduced ability of the body to absorb calcium which may lead to brittle nails, teeth or bones. For those who are faced with these conditions and need relief, there are a number of different ways to get treated with the help of Boron medically.

3 Lithium Stocks to Watch

Mining for Lithium is not an easy job. To be cost-effective requires stringent procedures and regulations in place and also needs to have a decent turn-around time and stand up to the promise of being a long-term supply source for clients. We look at three Lithium companies that have not only shown profits through an otherwise tumultuous time but also served their clients' present needs with a roadmap for the future.

ABR Appoints 2 Key Executives for US Listing

American Pacific Borates (ABR) has just announced the appointment of two senior executives to support its value engineering activities and US listing and to maximize shareholder value through operational excellence, strategic planning, and parallel diversification initiatives. The company also has plans for a listing in the US. To bring it all to fruition, the company is in discussions with various US-based investment banks, potential US partners, and debt capital market advisors.

Time for Boron to Join the Rare Earths Club

Rare Earth elements are valuable because they have magnetic and optical properties which create technologies in components such as audio speakers, hard drives, camera lenses, MRI imaging, and monitors of all sorts. But there is a cost to mining them as post-mining purification processes create hazardous waste. Boron is a potential alternative, providing clean and superconductive, energy-efficient benefits while being cheaper and more environmentally friendly.

Nissan EV Battery

Nissan is currently the only automaker with a complete lineup of electric vehicles, including full-electric cars, plug-in hybrids, and zero-emission light commercial vehicles. The company’s goal is to be an industry leader in advanced energy and zero-emission mobility by 2030. As a leader in developing new battery technologies to improve efficiency and power for their lineup of vehicles, use of rare earth metals and near rare earth metals such as boron and lithium is at the heart of the battery power program. But batteries have a limited lifespan. Once it comes to recycling, there is too much waste. Nissan is tackling this problem with Waseda University to produce breakthrough innovations in Electric Vehicles technology.
