Smart Generation Smart Recycling

 With the advancement of technology, many research work has started to  pay attention to the importance and necessity of smart education programs enabling users to learn more effectively, efficiently, flexibly and comfortably because traditional learning approach has been criticized for not able to meet the needs of today’s society. So it is necessary to design new learning environments, both technically and educationally.

A smart approach through which we can educate our children about recycling and to understand the importance of caring our environment is by taking their recycling duties seriously. Today’s generation use smart mobile devices and digital resources for communications, learning, and entertainment in their everyday lives to learn in any place and at any time.

Recycling different waste products is very important. There are many metal recycling companies in Dubai. But this should be done on a very large scale. If only a few of us contribute towards it then it will not benefit the environment as much as it should. It is often observed that in families children waste many things. It is necessary to educate your little ones on recycling benefits.

Advise your children on three things first:

Reduce: You can tell your kids not to waste things by buying things in abundance.

Reuse: Most of the kids don’t know how to reuse. Parents should teach them in a playful manner, the art of reusing items for example using cartons which comes with packaging items that can be reused for your school assignments which will never go unappreciated. 

Recycle: Kids have grown up seeing things used only for one purpose. By making different craft works and from using scrap in your house will give them an idea to think twice  before throwing something away or buying something that won’t be useful.

Also some of the smart activities that will help kids understand what recycling is and how they can be part of it for example:

Books are our best friends, buy books for them to understand the environment and teach them what happens when you don’t care for the environment.

Question them to find out things that can be recycle and reuse all over your home.

Encourage them to jot down the items what can or can’t be recycled like steel, glass, plastic, paper, aluminium cans that can be recycled.  Lucky Recycling is an environmental active and conscious body. It participates in events promoting safety of the environment.  Lucky Group proudly announced to be part of recent can collection campaign organized by EEG Emirates Environmental Group, U.A.E on 27th February 2021.

Show online recycling programmes to teach them how to take care of the earth through YouTube channels or some online educational sites.

Look at your surrounding go to the beach, park, malls and point out the trash which is harmful for our environment.

Educate them the difference between waste management and recycling, let them know where the rubbish goes or what goes into dumping facilities and what goes to recycling facilities.

How to Reduce Food Wastage?

Food wastage is a global problem. There are some countries with abundant food supply, while there are others that unfortunately do not have access to basic food requirements. In some places, the population has access to fresh produce while the others have to fulfil their demands from canned supplies. Approximately one third of the total food produced for human consumption globally is either lost or is wasted. (https://www.unep.org/thinkeatsave/get-informed/worldwide-food-waste#:~:text=Roughly%20one%2Dthird%20of%20the,tonnes%20%2D%20gets%20lost%20or%20wasted)

In this blog, we will discuss the ways in which we can reduce food wastage and contribute towards global sustainability. 

Shop Smart

One of the biggest reasons, food ends up in the waste bin is because we purchase more than we need. Shopping in bulk might be convenient and also economical but with the lack of planning, most of it could end up in waste. Take note of the inventory before making a list of the items that you need.

Educate yourself on shelf life of the produce

Elucidating on the point above, educating self on shelf life of food is essential and can help in using the produce accordingly. Shelf life varies across food items. Canned and packaged food items state the ‘best before’ date as well. 

Before throwing the food away

In today’s social media era, people are more inclined towards fresh-looking and taut produce and tend to throw away slightly soft or wilting produce. These produce are usually not bad for example; breads can be pulsed for making breadcrumbs. 

Food Storage

Increasing food longevity is highly dependable on the way it is stored. For instance, storing apples, bananas, and tomatoes apart from other perishables helps in keeping them fresh for longer time. 

Plan Ahead 

Planning weekly menus help in cutting back waste. Online tools and videos are very useful in planning menus that are applicable regionally. 

Evaluate gaps in your recycling efforts while food wastage is an alarming problem, it also touches a very prominent global issue – food packaging wastage. Almost all items that we consume require some kind of packaging, even fresh off-the-farms produce. It is advisable to turn to sustainable or reusable packaging. Single-use packaging usually uses plastic which ultimately end up polluting water bodies or in landfills. 

For metal packaging, instead of tossing the cans and containers in the bin, we should opt for conscious recycling. Aluminium foils and trays are 100% recyclable. Although it is not recycled to its full potential as it gets discarded with other waste. Aluminium scrap in Dubai is efficiently recycled by Lucky Recycling.

Lucky Group is working towards creating a sustainable future for the planet. The company also recycles other metals like steel, another commonly used metal for packaging that is infinitely recyclable.

Use of Metals in Aircrafts

When it was incepted, aircrafts used completely different components and compositions.  The first airplane built by the Wright brothers heavily used wooden apparatuses. As air travel grew in its early days and in-flight safety wasn’t a great deal as today, the seating consisted of wooden chairs. Over the years, aircraft designers, engineers, and manufacturers have taken in account multiple factors – from usability, functional requirements, maintenance costs, to sustainability, and made use of composite metals for building an efficient aircraft.

Let’s see how and which metals are used in aircrafts;

Aluminium 
Due to its low density and high strength, Aluminium is a highly dependable metal in aerodynamics. Engine of the first aircraft featured a 30-pound aluminium block. Since then, it has been used in mass-productions of commercial aircrafts. https://transport.world-aluminium.org/modes/aircraft/

Due to nature of its operation, high strength aluminium alloys are ideal to be used in airplane construction. To strengthen the body, alloy 7075 is used. It consists of copper, magnesium, and zinc. It is also resistant to corrosion, thereby reducing maintenance costs.

Steel
Steel is up to three times stronger than aluminium. Since aluminium cannot be used on the skin surface of the aircraft due to its low resistance to heat, Steel is ideal for the same. The landing gear is also made of steel. In fact, steel comprises 11-13 percent of the aircraft. https://www.stainless-steel-world.net/mobile/blogs/273/high-strength-cra-ideal-for-landing-gear.html

Titanium
Titanium is an expensive metal with robust qualities and high endurance. It has excellent qualities like high temperature and corrosion resistance. Titanium can be found in the wings, landing gear, housing, fan blades, and pumps within the engine. 

Nickel Alloys
Nickel alloys can resist high temperatures and corrosion. They are also structurally tough having excellent creep resistance properties. These alloys are often used to make the turbines of the aircraft engines due to the immense heat the engine is exposed to. Nickel alloys retain their strength at raised temperatures and hence, they are perfect for this function. They are also found in exhaust valves, thermostat rods, tanks, and piping for liquefied gas storage. 

The United Arab Emirates economy is fueled by tourism. One of the biggest contributors is the thriving aviation. 

The country holds immense potential in aircraft metal recycling. As discussed above, aluminium is used in huge proportion in aircrafts. Metal scrap companies in Dubai are equipped to efficiently recycle and reuse the same. Lucky Recycling, part of Lucky group is the leading metal recycling companies in Dubai that deploys energy efficient recycling methods to recycle variety of metals found in an aircraft. Not only does it step-up in making the planet greener, but also contribute towards the country’s constant demand for recycled metal.
