On Monday we had a meeting with Professor Animesh Kundu, where we talked about ball milling. This meeting was very insightful and I was made aware of issues that can come with ball milling PCBs which I had not thought about before. This week I researched more about ball milling and look into the ball mill we have on hand. I also studied a bit more about some specifics of the debromination process for PCBs. As a group, we made a document highlighting a couple of possible directions we can move towards with this project, and decided on a method Jacob had looked into using inorganic salts to change the specific heat of water.
We also were able to take out the lithium-ion batteries from all 11 Chromebooks we have and started disassembling a couple of them even further.
