We present a new bed elevation digital elevation model (DEM), with a 1 km spatial resolution, for the Weddell Sea sector of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet. The DEM has a total area of ~125,000 km2 covering the Institute, Möller and Foundation ice streams and the Bungenstock ice rise. In comparison with the Bedmap2 product, our DEM includes several new aerogeophysical datasets acquired by the Center for Remote Sensing of Ice Sheets (CReSIS) through the NASA Operation IceBridge (OIB) program in 2012, 2014 and 2016. We also update bed elevation information from the single largest existing dataset in the region, collected by the British Antarctic Survey (BAS) Polarimetric Airborne Survey Instrument (PASIN) in 2010-11, as BEDMAP2 included only relatively crude ice thickness measurements determined in the field for quality control purposes. This have resulted in the deep parts of the topography not being visible in the fieldwork non-SAR processed radargrams. While the gross form of the new DEM is similar to Bedmap2, there are some notable differences. For example, the position and size of a deep trough (~ 2 km below sea level) between the ice sheet interior and the grounding line of Foundation ice stream has been redefined. From the revised DEM, we are able to better derive the expected routing of basal water at the ice-bed interface, and by comparison with that calculated using Bedmap2 we are able to assess regions where hydraulic flow is sensitive to change. Given the sensitivity of this sector of the ice sheet to ocean-induced melting at the grounding line, especially in light of improved definition of the Foundation ice stream trough, our revised DEM will be of value to ice-sheet modelling in efforts to quantify future glaciological changes in the region, and therefore the potential impact on global sea level. The new 1 km bed elevation product of the Weddell Sea sector, West Antarctica can be found in the http://doi.org/10.5281/zenodo.1035488.

The biorefinery will produce 200,000 tpy (tons per year) of High-Quality Renewable Diesel from advanced bio-feedstocks non in competition with food Maire Tecnimont Group and Essential Energy USA sign agreement for new renewable diesel biorefinery in South America. (Credit: Thomas H. from Pixabay) Maire Tecnimont S.p.A., through its subsidiary NextChem and Essential Energy USA Corp. today have executed a Front-End Engineering Design contract as well as a Memorandum of Understanding for the construction of a new biorefinery in South America for the production of Renewable Diesel. Essential Energy USA Corp is one of the leading biofuels producers in South America.Subject to the client’s Final Investment Decision, the biorefinery will produce 200,000 tpy (tons per year) of High-Quality Renewable Diesel from advanced bio-feedstocks non in competition with food. NextChem will be the exclusive EPC contractor. The project is expected to be operational in 2023.The biorefinery will transform natural oil, waste vegetables oils and tallow into HVO (Hydrogenated Vegetable Oils) also known in the market as Renewable Diesel. The Renewable Diesel is a fuel which is chemically identical to petroleum-based diesel with the advantage of improved performance. It is used worldwide as a drop-in biofuel in diesel vehicles with no engine modifications. Furthermore, the Renewable Diesel allows a Carbon Intensity reduction, for greenhouse gas emissions, above 80 percent compared with petroleum-based diesel.Maire Tecnimont Group has exhaustive experience in EPC contracting in Energy Services including in South America. Additionally, NextChem has been active in energy transition projects with a focus on deploying solutions in carbon footprint reduction, through the development of new technologies for the production of biofuels and biochemicals from biobased feedstock and circular chemicals from waste.Pierroberto Folgiero, Maire Tecnimont Group and NextChem Chief Executive Officer, commented: “Our business in the biofuels sector and in particular on the Renewable Diesel segment is gradually growing and South America is a very interesting area for us. Low carbon mandates in North America and Europe will drive strong demand and premium pricing: this, together with the availability of proven technologies and solid EPC capabilities opens a path of market success for such investments. We are proud to be the partner of a sector- leader company such as Essential Energy USA Corp. in this world scale industrial initiative which enhances the EPC capabilities of Maire Tecnimont Group in green chemistry and the biofuels market.” Source: Company Press Release
McCambridge has announced it intends to close two of its own-label division factories as part of its strategy to streamline the business.Group commercial director Neil Fraser said Lisa Bakery in Oldham, which produces predominantly Swiss rolls and mini rolls, and William Lusty in Heywood, Lancashire, which manufactures slab cakes, have “physical constraints” that do not facilitate economic growth.“It is proposed to transfer the production at these sites to other north west-based manufacturing facilities within the own-label division of the McCambridge group,” said Fraser. “We’re not walking away from these products, we’re just going to move them, and obviously this will require staffing at the other sites.” He admitted that “realistically there will be some jobs at risk”, but said it’s too early to say how many. The equivalent of around 65 full-time staff are employed at Lisa Bakery, and 40 at William Lusty, he said.The firm will now enter into consultations with the Bakers, Food & Allied Workers Union and its employees on the proposals, which are expected to last a minimum of 30 days.
FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享PV Magazine:Bangladeshi power minister Nasrul Hamid has said the government has invited China to accelerate the renewable energy ambitions of the South Asian nation because private sector investors were not driving forward solar deployment fast enough.Welcoming the decision to form a joint venture (JV) between state-owned entities from each nation which will drive 450 MW of new solar capacity and a 50 MW wind farm, Hamid said lack of local investment meant solar power projects still cost $0.10-0.13/kWh in Bangladesh despite marked falls elsewhere in the world.Bangladesh’s highest decision-making body, the cabinet committee, on Monday approved a joint venture which will see the host nation’s North-West Power Generation Company Limited supply land for clean energy generation. Chinese engineering contractor the National Machinery Import and Export Corporation will invest an estimated $500 million in developing the planned solar and wind facilities, via the new Bangladesh-China Power Company (Pvt) Ltd Renewables entity.It is not clear whether the JV will be established as part of China’s continent-spanning Belt and Road Initiative infrastructure program of which Bangladesh is a member, but Hamid confirmed Dhaka wants at least 3 GW of solar capacity installed in the years ahead.Under the terms of the JV arrangement – which was held up, in part, by the Covid-19 crisis in Bangladesh – a 60 MW solar plant, for which a feasibility study has been prepared, will be set up on 205 acres of government-owned, non-cultivated ‘khas’ land, with the facility set to go online by next June. A feasibility study has also been prepared for a 100 MW solar project planned in the Sirajganj district. That facility is expected to begin generating by June 2022 and arrangements to lease the required land are under way.The 50 MW wind farm has been planned near the southern port of Payra and wind mapping of the site is almost complete, with the facility expected to be operational by December 2022.[Syful Islam]More: Bangladesh looks to Beijing to speed its solar ambition Bangladesh turns to China for help with its solar development plans
When you think of the sounds of the Blue Ridge, what comes to mind?There’s the whispers of the wind in the trees, the roars of rushing waters, the crunching of leaves under your hiking boots, but nothing quite compares to the sounds of wildlife within the woods. Time spent outdoors is time spent in a concert of the tunes created by many different types of birds. From the beautiful melodies of the birds at grandma’s house to the annoying ones that haunt you on your lunch breaks, do you ever wonder what unique bird is serenading you? Now you don’t have to wonder as, like most things, there’s an app for that!Courtesy of Wildlife AcousticsNew to Apple’s App Store, Song Sleuth is the convergence of science and art that can be used by anyone from beginner to veteran bird watchers and has created a buzz amongst outdoor resources such as Sierra Magazine and Tree Hugger.In a similar fashion of the apps that can listen and tell you what song is playing on the radio, Song Sleuth is capable of listening to a birdsong and reporting back to you the type of bird you are likely hearing. Created by Wildlife Acoustics, Song Sleuth is not the only birdsong recognition app to hit the market, but it is the first to have an extensive library of nearly 200 popular North American species of birds.The company joined forces with world-renowned ornithologist David Sibley to develop the app. Sibley is the author of one of North America’s top comprehensive guides in the field of birdwatching. Amongst the features of Song Sleuth are original illustrations by Sibley, seasonal range maps, and specific information on each bird species. Creating a full learning experience for the ears and the eyes, Song Sleuth even provides its users with spectrograms, which are color coded levels of sound that helps to differentiate similar sounding birdsongs. For particular birds found in specific places, the app gives you the capability to keep track of what birds you found where on a map.Working the app is simple. In a process that takes just seconds, the user can record the chirps, the app will then suggest the top three birds that are likely to have produced the tune and it has reference clips you can play to compare what the type of bird sounds like with what you are hearing live.Song Sleuth is a unique example of how you can connect to the outdoors without having years of experience in a niche field like birdwatching. With a 21st century take on birdwatching, Wildlife Acoustics is currently offering the app for apple products with an expected release for an android compatible version this fall. The technology to make this app possible took 12 years to perfect, and can be at your fingertips for the current app charge of $9.99. To read more on how the app performs in the field, check out the feedback from The National Audubon Society, a society dedicated to the protection of birds, who put it to the test.
