As countries around the world look for low carbon energy generation, the traditional power sources of

As countries around the world look for low carbon energy generation, the traditional power sources of coal and gas may be losing favour but that’s not to say they are on the literal or metaphorical scrap heap yet. Keren Fallwell reports. According to Global Energy Monitor, China is ramping up its coal power, building or about to start construction on plants equivalent to the EU’s entire capacity. Japan also has a strong emphasis on coal power, partly to meet the shortfall created by the closure of many of its nuclear power plants following the crisis at the Fukushima plant in 2011. It will have four new power plants commissioned in time for this year’s Olympic Games in Tokyo. India is also relying on coal to meet its growing demand for electricity. And just over 12 months ago, work was completed on the €6bn Egypt Megaproject which comprises three gas-fired plants designed to boost Egypt’s power generation capacity by 40%. So, while solar and wind power are gaining traction, the fossil fuel power sector—and the wellestablished hydropower industry— still requires transport and lifting solutions. For ALE, power generation has been a priority market in South Africa. “We’ve played a...

Is titanium dioxide safe to eat? Fresh research raises concerns over E171 Menu Back to Back to Back to Back to Back to Back to Send Follow us on Facebook Follow us on Twitter Follow us on LinkedIn Send contact Email to a friend Facebook Twitter Linkedin Tip a friend

Titanium dioxide, colouring E171, is included on the list of permitted EU food additives and this week the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) again issued an opinion that the common ingredient is safe for human consumption. In 2016, EFSA said that available data on E171 in food showed absorption levels were “extremely low”​ and that its use as an additive “does not raise a genotoxic concern”.​ And while the UN’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) has classified titanium dioxide as a possible human carcinogen, EFSA stated that it is not carcinogenic after oral administration. E171 is a colouring used in over 900 food products, from confectionery and baked goods to sauces such as mayonnaise. It is used to achieve a white, opaque or cloudy colour. The food safety body reaffirmed this opinion first in 2018 and then again last week, stating that no new evidence has come to light to prompt a change of course. Responding to a parliamentary question in February, Vytenis Andriukairis, European Commissioner for Health and Food Safety, stated: “The Commission considers that there are currently no grounds to apply precautionary measures regarding the authorisation of E17...

That’s A Wrap: Long wait pays off for ‘The Irishman’

A tasty steak, a loaf of Italian bread, a bottle of Canada Dry and ice cream for dessert. These things would make a nice, carbolicious meal, but they’re also the components that bind nearly five decades of mobsters, killing and betrayal in Martin Scorsese’s epic “The Irishman.” Starring Robert De Niro, Al Pacino and Joe Pesci, the 3½-hour film follows the reflections of Frank Sheeran (De Niro), an Irish-American World War II veteran based out of Philadelphia who finds work from Russell Bufalino (Pesci). Bufalino, who quietly leads a crime syndicate two hours away in Pittston, forms an unlikely bond with Sheeran, turning the father of four girls into a mob assassin. As the mob has its hands on nearly all parts of the U.S. government, Bufalino assigns Sheeran to protect union leader Jimmy Hoffa (Pacino). Bent on power and paranoid about rivals, Hoffa presents ideas that contradict what the mob wants, in a time when great change is sweeping over the country. In the middle is Sheeran, who has to decided who to honor – his longtime mob boss, his new union friend, or his family. “The Irishman” is based on the Charles Brandt’s book “I Heard You Paint Houses,” Sheeran’s account of bein...

MakerBot is not dead, but it is connected to life support waiting for a merciful soul

MakerBot is not dead, but it is connected to life support waiting for a merciful soul to pull the plug. This week, MakerBot announced it would lay off its entire manufacturing force, outsourcing the manufacturing of all MakerBot printers to China. A few weeks ago, Stratasys, MakerBot’s parent company, released their 2015 financial reports, noting MakerBot sales revenues have fallen precipitously. The MakerBot brand is now worth far less than the $400 Million Stratasys spent to acquire it. MakerBot is a dead company walking, and it is very doubtful MakerBot will ever be held in the same regard as the heady days of 2010. How did this happen? The most common explanation of MakerBot’s fall from grace is that Stratasys gutted the engineering and goodwill of the company after acquiring it. While it is true MakerBot saw its biggest problems after the acquisition from Stratasys, the problems started much earlier. Today, MakerBot has precisely two reputations. The most generous reputation comes from tech enthusiasts suffering from low information, that sees MakerBot as the Kleenex and Asprin of 3D printing. With more machines coming out on the market, this reputation is fading. The seco...

How auto industry’s researchers are looking for new vehicle ingredients

From paints and coatings to seats and suspensions, the revolution in materials will leave almost no part of future vehicles unchanged. Sometime in the mid-1990s, when Katrina Cornish was living in California and working for the U.S. Department of Agriculture, she saw a load of freshly picked tomatoes in a hopper being transported from a farm on the back of a truck. Cornish, who has a doctorate in plant biology from the University of Birmingham in England, did not view that load of tomatoes as most people would. She wondered instead about the tomatoes on the bottom of the container and realized that the skins would have to be pretty tough to handle that much stress. Flash forward nearly a quarter-century. Cornish is now a professor at Ohio State University and an international authority on alternative natural rubber production, properties and products, as well as rubber biosynthesis. She never forgot those tomatoes, and because of her pioneering research, it’s very possible that tomato skins could end up in your next car. Tomato skins could replace a portion of the environmentally dirty carbon black found in the rubber used in suspension bushings, motor mounts, tires, hose...
