Tesla: Three’s The Charm

TESLA 3 PRODUCTION IS SOARING!
Haven’t we heard enough about the Tesla 3? No..not enough. The demand for this ‘affordable’ car is going through the roof. Tesla is trying to ramp up production from 5,000 a week to 6,000 a week. Some sooth-sayers say that Tesla can not even keep up with the 5,000 a week. This demand for electric cars is promoted by high gas prices. At $1.30 to $1.45 per liter –in Canada– is costly, and prices are not going down in the future. The U.S. sings the same tune.

Tesla 3 Third Generation and least expensive vehicle to date

With a $35,000 price tag instead of $78,000, we can all buy a Tesla. Elon Musk maintains that the quality of the new Model 3 has not compromised. I have seen a few Tesla’s on the road. It is a sleek-looking car in black with red accent lights. A very cool car.

The Tesla Model 3 is the first vehicle built on Tesla’s third-generation platform. It aims to reduce the entry price for electric vehicles while not making any compromise on range and performance.

The Model 3 starts at $35,000 in the US and deliveries to employees and company insiders began in mid-2017 – customer deliveries begin in late 2017.PUBLISHED BY electrik.com

ONTARIO
As the Conservative party is officially talking over the Ontario government, they announced that they are officially shutting down the province’s generous electric vehicle rebate program effective immediately. (14 days ago..June 29, 2018)

Scrap Metal Needs Your Help!

Scrap metal may not be glamorous, but it’s a multi-billion-dollar industry.

If we actually recycled ‘ALL’ old phones instead of chucking them into the dustbin, our recycling percentage would go through the roof! We would be a better world if we stretch our efforts to ‘recycle properly’ instead of throwing the recycle items in the general trash. Cities should be more proactive, having disposable locations for say batteries -instead of driving a long distance to dispose of batteries. Other cost effective measures: For instance, the bin could send out a signal when this bin reaches a certain level of ‘fullness’. This way the driver does not have to come at a scheduled time to check the bin for dumping. A lot more of these ‘easy to access’ processes should be adopted by more cities. I need to see more bins!

Elegant Recycle Bins

The Bad NEWS
“Recycling Rates of Metals: A Status Report,” says that recycling rates of metals are in many cases is discouragingly low. The report issued by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) states that fewer than one-third of 60 metals studied have an end-of-life recycling rate above 50 percent and 34 elements have a recycling rate of less than one percent. Many of these metals, however, are crucial to clean technologies such as batteries for hybrid cars to the magnets in wind turbines, according to the authors of the study. provided by rick Leblanc of thebalancesmb.com Feb/2018

IT ONLY TAKES ONE PERSON
In Southern Ontario, I have seen a lot of bins overflowing. Coffee shops have recycle bins outside that are overflowing more times than I care to think. Is it up to me to call the city or the business and complain. Sometimes, it comes down to one person to do the right thing. Our ex-Mayor Hazel McCallion made notes where pot holes were peppered throughout the city of Mississauga. After she retired, a lot more potholes were left un-noticed. Yes it sometimes does take one person. Why not you?

Let’s Upcycle – Trendy

CREATIVE IDEAS
It’s so wonderful to see many new ideas for upcycling. Old tires are repurposed to make sandals, tables, chairs, flower pots and flooring! That’s only a few ideas for fun ideas with used old tires.

Fences and gates are designed by artist like Bob Dylan.
UPCYCLED –ALUMINUM GATE
Its hard to believe that this gate was once a pile of aluminum rims.

Aluminum can be recycled over and over without degrading or losing any of its innate characteristics.

SUMMER PROJECT
This maybe a project you want to get started this summer and have it ready for late summer and fall. Start looking for rubbish now. You can use old shovels for the top trim. Or, just use your imagination.

Fire Pit

THIS IS MY FAVORITE USE OF AN OLD VEHICLE
I suppose a couple of hens ventured into this old car and before you know it, a chicken coup was built. At night the wire gate is closed to keep the hens inside. A summer home for the hens. How lucky can you get!

Chicken Coop

Recycling cars can be elegant or trashy; from one extreme to the other. Plasma cutters have broadened the versatility and expanded creativity for upcycled projects.

How to Scrap A Car

ASK PAUL
Many people keep their old cars running a bit too long …..past their prime. As a result,  you just end up with spiraling mechanic’s bills to keep your car running a wee bit longer. I am very qualified to make that observation since I have been on the precipice of a dead car many times.  At some point you need to ‘scrap your car’.  After all, cars weren’t built to last forever.

The Model T (truck) was first sold in 1908. Although no verified hauling specifications are known, this one is pictured loaded with 8,000 pounds of hay. It was probably driving well below the Model Ts top speed of 40 mph.

Basically, the customer gives the tow truck driver the ownership papers in exchange for a predetermined cash amount.  A heavier car will draw more money for the customer. It’s all based on the weight of the car, where both parties agreed on a dollar figure for the value of the scrap metal for the car.  It’s not a lot of money. Quotes are based on the ton weight of scrap metal. Each car weight so much. The metal buyers decide on the prices for the processed scrap metal. The vehicles are usually crushed into large cubes of steel.

All the gas and fluids are drained. The car then goes down a conveyor belt to the furnace to melt the steel into manageable size for transportation.    The ownership goes to the government (stamped as a recycled car). Most customers don’t know that the scrap car owner, in this case Paul’s Scrap pays HST for the money he gives for the cars. Everything is done by the book!

Simply stated; here is the process.

What Happens To Old Batteries?

SCRAP CAR BATTERIES💖
Today we have to repurpose two types of batteries:

(1) Electric Lithium Batteries
(2) Lead Acid Batteries

(1) REPURPOSING BATTERIES FROM ELECTRIC CARS
Yes! The batteries used to power electric cars (and hybrids, for that matter) can be recycled. In the beginning, the few electric cars that were on the road were powered by lead-acid batteries. The latest models use lithium-ion batteries, just like laptops and cell phones. The lithium batteries are lighter in weight and last longer than a lead-acid battery.
Lithium-ion battery-powered cars are becoming more popular in lieu of oil and gas potential shortages. The recycling centers for Lithium-ion batteries are still in their infancy. Let’s take a look at how to convert a lead acid battery to a lithium battery. Did you know it could be done and your car runs! Here’s a Honda Civic with a new lithium battery. Could it be true? 
There are two methods to process lithium-ion batteries when they reach a recycling plant. If the battery is completely without a charge, they go to the shredder to sort out the copper and steel. If the batteries has a charge, they are then frozen in liquid nitrogen and then smashed to frozen bits (cool!). The liquid nitrogen is so cold, the batteries can’t react, so the smashing is safe. And, probably fun. Makes you think of Terminator 2 – when the new and improved terminator (bad guy)  got caught in liquid nitrogen broke apart and yes came back together again to cause more havoc!
(2) LEAD ACID BATTERIES
One of the first cars were steam-powered similar to trains. That idea was short-lived. The lead acid battery was invented in 1859 and used for turning on train lights and as a back-up battery. Early cars did not have batteries. They were started with a crank. The lead acid battery came in 1920, the same time as the electric (car) starter was invented. It wasn’t until 1970 that the sealed battery was used (It did not require filling). did you know that the most recycled product in the world–next to cars- are car batteries.

This video (below) really shows you how batteries are re-purposed.

Scrap Car Prices June2018

WHAT’S GOING ON IN THE SCRAP METAL MARKETS?

Turkish scrap import prices recovered in the week ended Friday June 15 on steady demand from the country’s steel mills. This was due to bullish sentiment in the markets arising from the United States’ decision to impose its Section 232 import tariffs on material from the EU, Canada and Mexico. published by metalbulletin.com

Here in Canada and the US, we have stable iron prices from May continuing into June. We should also see July/Aug as productive months.
CHINA
China is still making the rules. They are reducing their imports of copper. Copper is used for electronics, wiring, cables and technical devices. Strong domestic recycling has dropped the copper demand (from China) about 15%. Scrap yards are starting to build up their inventory.
Building up inventory may start dropping prices for scrap in the Fall. October is the Tell Tale month. October will dictate prices for the next year.
Trump may be able to negotiate a better deal with China. At one point 68% of The U.S scrap went to China. Today, this no longer exists. Trump has raised tariffs for any imports to the USA from China and other countries. Trump wants to squeeze out cheap Chinese products and have companies rely on US made items. It’s been a rocky road so far. If China wants to retaliate against the new tariffs, they may shift some of their import needs to Canada.

And The Winner is – CHINA!

Emerging Power!

Here is the WOW factor.
