  • Patent number: 10733579
    Abstract: Systems and methods for self-service recycling are provided. In particular, some embodiments include graphical user interfaces and backend systems that allow users to engage in remote inquiries of available salvage automotive parts in salvage yards. A user makes a request for a type of recyclable assembly. Examples of types of recyclable assemblies include, but are not limited to, automobiles, tractors, electronic devices, home appliances, and vending machines. The request is compared to a database of end-of-life vehicles across a number of salvage yards. When a salvage yard is identified as having the specified end-of-life vehicle, local parts pullers who are on site are notified and a communication channel between the parts puller and the user is initiated. This is facilitated through geofencing and location aware devices. Using this information, the user can determine if any of the identified parts remain on the vehicle and may purchase the parts from the SSAR facility for resale.

The film has a protrusive marginal side extending radially outwardly beyond an outer circumferential edge of the wafer. A holding unit holds another surface of the wafer with the protective member disposed therebelow. A gripping unit grips the protrusive marginal side of the protective member. A peeling mechanism peels the protective member off the wafer by relatively moving the gripping unit and the holding unit radially inwardly from the outer circumferential edge of the wafer toward the center of the wafer. A camera then captures an image of the wafer, and a decision unit determines whether residue of the resin remains on the wafer from the image captured by the camera.

  • Patent number: 10145005
    Abstract: Certain example embodiments relate to methods for low temperature direct graphene growth on glass, and/or associated articles/devices. In certain example embodiments, a glass substrate has a layer including Ni formed thereon. The layer including Ni has a stress pre-engineered through the implantation of He therein. It also may be preconditioned via annealing and/or the like. A remote plasma-assisted chemical vapor deposition technique is used to form graphene both above and below the Ni-inclusive film. The Ni-inclusive film and the top graphene may be removed via tape and/or the like, leaving graphene on the substrate. Optionally, a silicon-inclusive layer may be formed between the Ni-inclusive layer and the substrate. Products including such articles, and/or methods of making the same, also are contemplated.
