By Robert J. Schulman and Scott WilsonThe Washington Times|April 15, 2020| 12:01:26As the nation’s metal processing plants churn out metal slitters that can be used to cut steel, aluminum, titanium and other metals, new research suggests it could also be possible to remove metals from the ground.
Researchers from MIT and the University of Michigan recently published a paper in the journal Nature that proposes the use of tiny nano-pods that can hold and remove metallic particles from the environment.
The research, which involved using an instrument that could record magnetic field lines and analyze the chemical properties of the metal particles, is important because it could lead to new technologies to remove contaminants from soil and water.
The researchers developed the technology using a process known as “microwave extraction” that uses an ultrasonic method to inject nanoparticles of gold into a liquid that is heated to high temperatures and then released.
In doing so, the particles are heated and separated from the liquid to remove them.
When the process is repeated a few times, the process removes the gold particles from a material.
It’s similar to removing salt from a brine or other water solution.
The process works because it uses a single source of energy, which is why researchers can remove a gold nanoparticle in less than a second.
Microwave extractions, or MSEs, have been used for decades to remove small amounts of contaminants from the soil and air.
They are relatively cheap, and can be applied to almost any type of metal.
However, a lot of those products come at the cost of a larger volume of water and are difficult to use effectively, which limits their application.MSEs also have drawbacks, such as the potential for microplastics to be introduced into the water and soil.
However, researchers have been trying to find better ways to remove the contaminants and are working on a variety of ways to make them less likely to become a problem.
Researchers say the current method could be an ideal way to remove these contaminants, as the particles would be easily removed from the surface by the water or soil.
The MIT researchers’ study uses a process called “metal plating” to extract the metals from soil.
Metal plating involves the introduction of a tiny amount of a material into a small volume of a liquid.
This small amount of the material can then be rapidly added to the liquid, which then releases the metal.
The metals are then dissolved in the liquid and removed from contact with the soil.
Researchers have been experimenting with ways to use the nano-pod technology to remove metal particles from soil for a while, but it hasn’t been a particularly simple process.
They also have a lot to learn about the technology and its potential impact on the environment, which has been the focus of research for a number of years.
The research is a continuation of work done by the University’s Geospatial Technologies Laboratory, which was involved in the study.
In addition to the work of the Geospacial Technology Laboratory, other groups have been working on metal plating for years, including the Advanced Nanotechnology Institute at MIT.
In fact, a paper describing the technology was published earlier this year in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
Researchers at the University and other organizations have been using the technology to extract metals from wastewater, and the technology is used in a variety for soil and other land-use processes.
The current research could have a big impact on soil and the environment in general, said co-author Alex Vlasov, a professor of earth and planetary sciences at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
He added that while the technology isn’t yet used in the production of soil, the technology could be used in water treatment and the extraction of metals from plants and soils.
While this method isn’t technically new, it has been relatively difficult to demonstrate its utility in the field, Vlasav said.
He and his colleagues were able to demonstrate that this method worked for removing metals from soils using a series of small, easily deployable metal particles that could be embedded in soil, he said.
The material was embedded in a porous substrate that could absorb the particles and be deposited on the soil surface.
After a few days, the nanoparticles were removed from soil by the process.
The material has been in use for a long time, and there are many applications for the material that could come from the future, he added.
Vlasov said that while this technology is promising, it still needs to be tested thoroughly to make sure it can work on the large scale, because there are some limitations.
There is a potential for microbial contamination, he noted, and this technology would need to be made more widely available and tested.
But for now, the MIT researchers are working to develop the technology for use in the soil, where it is likely to be used more widely, Vasov said.
“The main thing we want to do is prove this technology works, and to
