Nike receives patent for recycable golf balls

nike_golfballsNike has been granted a U.S. patent for recyclable golf balls. The company applied for the patent back in 2012 when it identified the problem that players often dump balls when the cover is scratched although the core is still intact. The innovation, now protected by patent n°8,905,861, allows the cover to be peeled off, while the core can be recycled or reused. The patent is based on two ideas: first, easy removal of the cover through a specific chemical reaction and, second, a layer between the core and the cover which facilitates the procedure.
