MELBOURNE, Australia – January 6, 2023 – (Newswire.com)

Beginning lithium mining in 1983, Western Australia is now famously home to the largest lithium mine in the world. Over the years, as lithium has become a more valuable, in-demand metal, Australia has risen to the task of being the primary lithium supplier around the globe. But consumers are increasingly wondering whether there’s a sustainable path forward for the lithium mining industry – It Matters to You, provider of auto recycling and cash for cars Melbourne-wide, reveals what the future may look like for the Australian lithium mining industry.

Greenbushes, located just outside of Perth, Western Australia, currently supplies around 40 percent of Australia’s lithium output – altogether, Australia produces approximately 50 percent of the world’s lithium, closely followed by select South American countries. This lithium is, in part, used to manufacture the lithium-ion batteries that power electric vehicles (EVs); EVs are, of course, seen by many to be a catch-all solution for climate change. However, the hard rock mining used in Australia to produce lithium and the subsequent refining processes are proving to be anything but sustainable. 

It Matters to You explains that once lithium is mined in Australia, the rock that it’s found in must be crushed and roasted to produce a material called spodumene, which contains around six percent lithium. Once the rock has undergone this process, it’s sent off to China, where it’s refined – all of these steps, even the shipping, are having a constant, negative impact on the environment. 

All is not lost, according to It Matters to You. The state government of WA has plans to build a number of refining facilities on home soil in close proximity to the lithium mines – thus eliminating the need to ship rock to China. 

Environmental groups are keeping a close eye on the lithium mining industry as a whole in order to identify ways to decarbonise and reduce the industry’s environmental impact. 

Experts argue that no matter how small the positive changes, if they are implemented now, they will have substantial effects far into the future. These changes will shape the way EVs are manufactured, making them a far more environmentally friendly option than they are at present.

SAN DIEGO – January 5, 2023 – (Newswire.com)

ZetrOZ Systems hosted a Lunch and Lecture for The Professional Baseball Athletic Trainers Society (PBATS) during the Major League Baseball Winter Meetings at the Manchester Grand Hyatt in San Diego, California. Founder and CEO Dr. George Lewis presented scientific updates on sustained acoustic medicine (sam®) research in sports medicine, reviewed a 2022 Healthcare Provider Survey on utilization within professional athletics and results from real-world clinicals, and introduced its Player Performance Packages for 2023.

“It was a pleasure to have the opportunity to speak with The Professional Baseball Athletic Trainers Society,” said Dr. Lewis. “I am grateful for the opportunity to share my knowledge and recent findings with such a professional and dedicated group of trainers. I look forward to continuing the conversation and working together to improve the health, performance and recovery of athletes in the future.”

Some of the key findings from the latest sports medicine research include the following:

  • Professional sports medical staff had an 87% satisfaction rate pDraper et al. 2021 J. Ortho. Practice).
  • When patients failed to respond to physical therapy, sam® proved to be a helpful adjunct to facilitate healing and return to work (Winkler et al. 2021 Nature Sports Med).
  • Athletic Trainers working within the professional, collegiate and military levels found sam® provided clinical patient improvement in under two weeks of treatment and a 50% reduction of pain medication pWalters et al. 2022 Open Orthopedics).
  • 87.3% of athletes are highly receptive to treatment, have a high confidence level for improved function, and return to work after 30 days of sam® use pOpen Orthopedics).

Over 30 studies back sustained acoustic medicine’s effectiveness, and over 1 million individuals have used sam® to treat soft tissue injuries. Today, 99% of Major League Baseball (MLB) organizations utilize sam® to treat injuries and accelerate soft tissue healing.

Dr. Lewis also introduced the company’s 2023 Player Performance Packages, designed for prophylactic injury prevention and soft tissue healing. A package includes one sam®x1 unit, a 10-week supply of patches, and 100% damage coverage. ZetrOZ is preparing its deployment training over the next several weeks before MLB’s 2023 Spring Training, officially beginning on Friday, Feb. 24.

“Now every player from the big leagues to the minors has access to sam® treatment. We are looking to reduce common injuries to the shoulder and elbow,” he added.

sam® is the first and only FDA-cleared, non-surgical and drug-free wearable long-duration mechanobiological device for home use designed to treat chronic inflammatory diseases and accelerate soft tissue healing. To learn more, visit zetroz.com.
