M&K Plastik has invested in an UNTHA RS40 four shaft shredder to transform its recycling operation.

The plastic remanufacturing specialist processes pre-sorted HDPE and PP material collected from municipal waste sorting plants, to support the circular economy and the regranulating of valuable plastics.

UNTHA RS40 four shaft shredder UNTHA RS40 four shaft shredder And now an UNTHA plastic shredder with pusher technology, lies at the heart of the recycling facility.

An UNTHA customer since 2016, M&K Plastik handles approximately 500 kg per hour and shreds the waste down to a homogenous 40mm particle. Further downstream equipment then refines the fraction for regranulation.

Commenting on the investment in an UNTHA machine, M&K Plastik’s co-owner Marek Kurkowski said: “We thoroughly researched the market before selecting the RS40. It sits at the beginning of our processing line, so the shredder’s output quality influences the success of our whole recycling operation.

“This shredder was by far the best choice. It is a robust and reliable unit, with high performance – especially in terms of uptime.  We  spend minimal time on ongoing maintenance and the cutters are long-lasting. This means we’re far more efficient in terms of human resources, and we’ve reduced operating costs by an estimated 20%.”

The first shredder ever to be designed and patented by UNTHA, the globally-acclaimed RS40 remains one of the most tried-and-tested pieces of equipment manufactured by this 50-year-old brand. Suitable for shredding plastic bottles, barrels, packaging, production waste, car bumpers, tetra paks and more, this 3.6 tonne machine is renowned for its high torque cutting system and defined fraction sizing.

“I think this UNTHA machine deserves particular praise for its durability, reliability, throughputs, energy efficiency and operator safety,” continued Marek Kurkowski “I would definitely recommend the RS40 plastic shredder.”

The UK is expected to drive the upcoming projects across oil and gas value chain in Europe, accounting for about 25% of the total projects which are likely to start operations by 2025. Amongst these, new build projects lead with 62% while the remaining are expansion projects mainly in the upstream sector (fields), according to GlobalData, a leading data and analytics company.

GlobalData’s report, ‘Europe Oil and Gas Projects Outlook to 2025 - Development Stage, Capacity, Capex and Contractor Details of All New Build and Expansion Projects’, reveals that 111 projects are expected to commence operations in the UK during the period 2021-2025. Out of these, 83 will be upstream projects, 23 will be midstream with refinery and petrochemical at three and two, respectively.

Soorya Tejomoortula, Oil & Gas Analyst at GlobalData, comments: “The shallow waters of the North Sea will continue to drive the growth of upstream production projects in the UK. The upcoming projects’ list has a good mix of both oil and gas developments and will help the country to continue to meet its oil and gas needs and reduce reliance on imports.”

Among the upcoming production projects in the UK, Rose Bank is a key project with a total production capacity of 121,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day. Proposed in deep waters of West of Shetland, the project will further enhance the UK energy security with supply of both oil and gas.

GlobalData notes that 23 midstream projects are expected to start operations in the UK during 2021-2025. Rosebank Export Line transmission pipeline is a key midstream project with a length of 236km and a project cost of US$2bn. The pipeline helps to transport gas produced from the Rosebank field to the UK onshore.

Deborah is another key midstream project in the UK for underground storage of gas. It is expected to have a working gas capacity of 174 bcf and a project cost of US$3bn. The project increases the country’s gas storage capacity and can serve both the UK and northwest European markets.

The capacity increase of Isle of Grain regasification terminal is also being planned with a cost of US$396m, which would make it the largest LNG import terminal Europe once it starts operations in 2025.

A few refinery and petrochemical projects are also expected to start operations in the UK during 2021-2025. While the 45MW Pembroke Cogeneration Plant Expansion is a key refinery project with a cost of US$170m, the INEOS Group Hull Vinyl Acetate Monomer (VAM) Plant 2 is a major petrochemical project during this period with a capacity of 0.30 mtpa and costing US$213m.

Bürkert is expanding its portfolio of mass flow meters (MFMs) and mass flow controllers (MFCs), Types 8742 and 8746, for gases to include variants with a standard signal and PROFIBUS-DP interface. The new generation enables simple device replacement or plant modernisation, while ensuring the usual high measuring accuracy and low-maintenance operation. Further, the robust housing allows unprotected field use, even in Ex Zone 2.

Measuring and controlling gases poses challenges for operators of plants with a long operational life. On the one hand, they want to use the latest measurement technology and, on the other hand, this technology must communicate via existing interfaces. The fluid specialists at Bürkert Fluid Control Systems therefore now offer their proven MFCs/MFMs, Types 8742 and 8746, as versions with an analogue or PROFIBUS-DP interface.

The MFCs/MFMs, Types 8742 and 8746, enable the efficient use of cutting-edge flow measurement technology despite older communication technology.

(Source: Bürkert Fluid Control Systems)

he thermal MEMS sensor is located directly in the gas flow and achieves very fast response times for highly dynamic measurements or gas control, for example in metal and glass production and processing, fermentation processes or filling and packaging machines. The MFMs/MFCs conform to FDA and USP Class VI and can be used in the pharmaceutical and food industries as well. A robust electronics housing with optional conformity to ATEX/IEC Ex Zone 2 Cat. 3G/D ensures safety in the field. As a result of the interface extension, even existing plants with established data acquisition can be easily upgraded to the latest generation of devices. High-level dynamics and measuring accuracy with very short response or setting times do not depend on the state of interface technology. Nevertheless, the latest MFCs/MFMs, Types 8742 and 8746, offer extended pressure and flow ranges as well as additional, application-specific software functions.

Flexible technology
The MFCs/MFMs operate in the nominal flow rate range of 0.010 lN/min to 160 lN/min (Type 8742) or 20 lN/min to 2500 lN/min (Type 8746). Optionally, up to four real gas calibrations for various gases and mixtures can be stored in the device. Gas changeovers, for example for fermenters or molten metal treatment, are thus possible without any problems.

The entire range of new generation devices feature uniform M12 standard connectors for communication, ensuring easy installation and a reliable supply of spare parts. Thanks to the integrated configuration memory, devices can be exchanged quickly and easily via plug & play.

Nouryon has introduced LumaTreat™, a global patent-pending smart-tagged polymer line of products that is revolutionary in the water management industry. LumaTreat products are fluorescent monomers that attach on a deposit control agent. The combination of the fluorescent monomer and deposit control polymer provide a Smart Tag that accurately measures the ‘free’ or unused polymer in the water treatment system.

2021 03 05 110203The products are a breakthrough because LumaTreat can tag most polymers used in water treatment to prevent calcium phosphate, calcium carbonate and other deposits that, over time, produce scale deposits. To date, the industry has widely used pyrenetetrasulfonic acid tetrasodium salt (PTSA) in water treatment formulations. However, PTSA is an inert fluorescent tracer that only provides an estimate of how much formulation is in the water. LumaTreat enables customers to accurately measure ‘free polymer’ in the system, reducing the amount of polymer and water usage during the treatment process. This is a sustainable solution that both minimizes polymer consumption and conserves water.

“LumaTreat polymers contain high-purity (or active level) tagged monomers that provide accurate measurement of the free polymer and the amount of stress on the water treatment system,” said John Anderson, Sales & Marketing Leader, Industrial Specialties at Nouryon. “LumaTreat optimizes polymer and water usage under everyday conditions while preventing scaling during system disruptions, such as hot spots, pH pump failure or changing water conditions,” he said.

This version of LumaTreat is the first of three patent-pending compositions introduced by Nouryon, and targets water treaters who use PTSA. Nouryon is working in partnership with customers on additional versions to be introduced later. Nouryon’s patent applications are published as International Publication Number WO2020/243176 and WO2020/243180.

Another advantage for customers is that the LumaTreat polymers use the same fluorimeters found in PTSA technology so that water treaters can use their existing equipment. “This eliminates capital expenditure and ensures formulation costs won’t change significantly,” said Anderson.

“We’re really proud of the Nouryon team that has worked on this scientific breakthrough leading to a pending patent,” said Larry Ryan, Nouryon’s Executive Vice President and President, Performance Formulations and the Americas. “This innovation not only benefits the environment but also helps reduce costs for our customers. That’s a great win for everyone.”

The United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit today affirmed multiple findings of civil contempt against disbarred attorney Steven Donziger, effectively bringing to a close his campaign to profit from the fraudulent Ecuadorian judgment he procured in violation of the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (“RICO”) Act.

Chevron LogoAs the Second Circuit today observed, it has been finally adjudicated that Donziger “fraudulently procured the Ecuadorian Judgment against Chevron through a pattern of racketeering activity.” The court also noted “Donziger, among other things, bribed the presiding judge to enter a judgment in his clients’ favor in exchange for $500,000 of the judgment’s proceeds; coerced the court to appoint a hand-picked expert whom Donziger paid for favorable testimony; and ghost-wrote the Ecuadorian Judgment.” In 2020, the New York Appellate Division, First Department, disbarred Donziger for “egregious professional misconduct, namely, corruption of a court expert and ghostwriting his report, obstruction of justice, witness tampering, and judicial coercion.”

In today’s ruling, the Second Circuit agreed with “the district court’s conclusions that Donziger acted in contempt of the Injunction that resulted from the RICO Judgment in numerous ways,” including Donziger’s failure to transfer his interest in the fraudulent Ecuadorian judgment to Chevron, transferring a portion of his interest in the judgment in exchange for personal services, transferring and dissipating his assets in violation of his obligations as a judgment debtor, and disregarding discovery orders. The court noted that for the most part Donziger did “not even attempt to challenge the district court’s findings of his contumacious conduct.” The court reversed other aspects of the district court’s rulings and remanded the case to the district court for determination of the amount of fees Donziger owes Chevron.

The decision rejects Donziger’s attempts to circumvent the RICO judgment. The Second Circuit ruled that, going forward, Donziger “can no longer sell any interests in the Ecuadorian Judgment for any reason, and use the proceeds for his benefit . . . or profit from such sales in any way whatsoever.” The court also upheld the district court’s award of costs against Donziger, because “costs were sought in a litigation in which Donziger has been found liable for engaging in a pattern of racketeering involving corruption of a foreign judiciary resulting in a multi-billion dollar judgment.” The decision acknowledged “the district court’s thorough and fully persuasive fact findings and legal conclusions, which [the Second Circuit] ha[s] already affirmed in full, establishing Donziger’s violations of law and ethics that added up to a pattern of racketeering in violation of the RICO statute.”

U.S. courts are not alone in condemning the Ecuadorian litigation against Chevron. In a separate proceeding, an international tribunal in The Hague previously ruled that the Ecuadorian judgment was procured by the plaintiffs’ legal team through egregious fraud and corruption and is therefore unenforceable under international law. The international tribunal further rejected the environmental allegations against Chevron, holding that the corrupt Ecuadorian judgment was based on environmental claims that had been already settled and released by the Republic of Ecuador years earlier following the successful completion of an environmental remediation carried out under the supervision and with the approval of the Republic of Ecuador.

All efforts to enforce the fraudulent Ecuadorian judgment outside of Ecuador have been rejected. Today’s decision further vindicates Chevron’s position in this long-running dispute.

TietoEVRY has launched its Diversity and Inclusion Charter, as a part of its new Sustainability game plan “Upgrading tomorrow”. The Diversity and Inclusion Charter sets ambitious goals for gender balance with an aim to reach equal representation of men and women in the company’s workforce by 2030. The company has outlined several actions to reach the goal considering a wide range of areas and plans to apply SHE Index criteria in all Nordic countries for reporting its progress. 

TietoEVRY has 2 March launched its first Sustainability game plan, called “Upgrading tomorrow”. As part of that plan, the company launches its Diversity & Inclusion Charter which sets the frame for the actions the company will take in the decade ahead aiming to ensure gender balance in its workforce. 

2021 03 01 125203“At TietoEVRY, we see the diversity of people, beyond of gender identification, ethnic origin, religion or belief, disability, or age being equally valuable for creating a good and inspirational workplace. Embracing every individual creates a culture, where everyone can flourish and reach their full potential. We believe diverse perspectives are a prerequisite for successful innovation,” says Kimmo Alkio, President and CEO of TietoEVRY.

As a concrete target to advance equality, TietoEVRY has set an ambition to reach a 40% share of female professionals globally by 2026 – and 50% by 2030 – corresponding to 29% today. The company has outlined several actions to reach the goal considering a wide array of areas. 

“As women are under-represented in the ICT industry starting from the talent pipeline, this goal can be considered bold. But it shows our strong commitment to improving TietoEVRY’s gender balance over time. The actions we plan to take include setting measurable and transparent goals for gender balance per business area, identifying successors of both sexes for leadership positions and looking at our recruitment practices e.g. expanding the implementation of an anonymous gamified recruitment process. We also aim to increase development and mentoring initiatives for female leaders as well as awareness building across the organization including enforcing bias trainings. We begin this journey aiming high and believing we can make a difference as one of the largest tech employers in the Nordics,” says Trond Vinje, Chief Human Resources Officer at TietoEVRY. 

SHE Index and other local activities underway 

TietoEVRY has been working strategically to advance gender balance, for many years. The company plans to introduce SHE Index criteria to Nordics to report its progress. SHE Index measures stakeholders’ focus on diversity and inclusion in leadership and workforce, equal compensation and work-life balance. In Norway, TietoEVRY has been part of SHE Index for several years and the company ranks at 14 this year. In Sweden, TietoEVRY has this year reached the third position in the SHE Index, scoring high in areas such as the proportion of women in managerial positions. In Finland, TietoEVRY will partner with SHE Index and will be amongst the first companies to apply SHE Index this year. 

“The SHE Index provides a good set of indicators to strengthen transparency and promote gender equality in working life and we plan to adopt it globally. We challenge other companies to join the index,” continues Vinje. 

“SHE Index is a catalyst for stakeholders to drive focus on diversity and inclusion in leadership and workforce, including equal compensation and work-life balance. By joining the Index, companies have taken important steps in their journeys towards greater inclusion. As of now, companies in Norway, Sweden, Finland and Denmark can join the index. Our plan is that during 2021, the SHE Index will be available in all European countries,” says Heidi Aven, Founder and CEO of the SHE Community.
