Artificial arm for manipulations in toxic atmospheres based on EEG-EMG signals
A solution with industrial applicability based on human arm modelling and simulation that is capable of replacing human operator's direct intervention in manipulating substances that can generate toxic vapors that affect air quality or contain substances with high epidemiological risk, or others that, in case of inappropriately manipulated, can produce potentially explosive situations.


Multilayer protection analysis for photovoltaic manufacturing facilities
This paper gives an overview of environmental health and safety (EHS) issues related to photovoltaic (PV) technologies, and strategies for reducing EHS risks. These strategies include layers of
Life-cycle nitrogen trifluoride emissions from photovoltaics.
From these, the best practices and technologies that are the most likely to keep worldwide atmospheric concentrations of NF₃ at very low radiative forcing levels are defined.
Life cycle assessment of high‐concentration photovoltaic systems
The environmental profiles of photovoltaic (PV) systems are becoming better as materials are used more efficiently in their production, and overall system performance improves. Our analysis details
Economic Feasibility of Recycling Photovoltaic Modules
The market for photovoltaic (PV) electricity generation has boomed over the last decade, and its expansion is expected to continue with the development of new technologies. Taking into consideration
Recycling strategies to enhance the commercial viability of CIS photovoltaics
Recycling of photovoltaic (PV) modules at the end of their useful life is important for the success of commercializing PV technologies. There are economic, regulatory and technical issues related to
The energy payback time of advanced crystalline silicon PV modules in 2020: a prospective study
The photovoltaic (PV) market is experiencing vigorous growth, whereas prices are dropping rapidly. This growth has in large part been possible through public support, deserved for its promise to
Design and optimization of photovoltaics recycling infrastructure.
This paper overviews the current status of photovoltaics recycling planning and discusses the mathematic modeling of the economic feasibility and the environmental viability of several PV recycling infrastructure scenarios in Germany; the findings suggest the optimum locations of the anticipated PV take-back centers.
