Ground to Nano-dust

Abstract:
St. Petersburg engineers have developed a device capable of not only mining diamonds from rubble but also making nano-materials for electronics and biotechnologies. Crushing and grinding materials are the most widely used production processes in industry and agriculture. These processes consume over 20% of all electricity currently generated throughout the world. The orbital mills developed by St Pete’s scientists, if used in the mining industry, will reduce the electricity required for the ore grinding process by half.
