GlasPort Bio Ltd - overall Rushlight Award winners, reduce gas & add value to manure
Awards & Standards
Animal manure has long been recognised as a valuable fertiliser and a source of renewable energy. It is also a major source of pollution, with emissions from stored manure accounting for approximately 15% of all agricultural greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and more than 70% of all ammonia emissions in Europe.
Ion Science - new protection against VOCs
Health & safety
Offering a new level of enhanced, reliable protection against VOCs with the first 11.7 Cub personal solution from ION Science.
In a 2018 report from the UN, it was revealed that a worker dies every 30 seconds due to exposure to toxic gases in the workplace. That such statistics still exist today is one of the reasons ION Science is working hard to create protective technologies for workers against VOC exposure. The new 11.7 eV Cub personal solution is the first of its kind and promises to be a game-changer for protection against exposure.
The Cub 11.7 eV personal device is the latest addition to ION Science's world-leadingrange of gas and leak detection products. Using their 30 years of industry experienceand their extensive knowledge of both volatile organic compounds (VOCs) andphotoionisation detection (PID), ION Science continue to deliver excellence in protection for workers.
The 11.7 eV sensor lamp is a notoriously difficult lamp to manufacture. Due to its highly sensitive nature, 11.7 eV devices in the past have been temperamental, require frequent lamp changes and ultimately end up with increased environmental exposure, affecting performance of the device.
ION Science has tackled this issue and developed a refined manufacturing method that eliminates some of the sensitivities and issues previously associated with 11.7 eV detection.
As the first 11.7 personal detection solution from ION Science, the Cub 11.7 offers all the features a customer would expect from the market leader.
This includes resistance to humidity and moisture, operational in temperatures from 0-55 degrees, and intrinsically safe even in explosive environments. Its lightweight design at only 111g makes it comfortable for wearers and the small size doesn't impede movement or work.
Unrivalled Gas Detection.

Sustainable Benefits of the Wood Pellet Industry - by Dr. Jennifer Jenkins, Chief Sustainability Officer at Enviva
Healthy, growing forests remain one of the most critical tools in the fight to mitigate climate change, and sustainable forest management is part of every plan outlined by the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (the "IPCC") to limit global warming to less than 1.5 degrees Celsius.
An international team of scientists, led by the University of St Andrews, have studied historical carbon dioxide levels spanning 66 million years and conclude that urgent action is needed to avoid a return to prehistoric levels of climate change from 50 million years ago.
Vodafone has partnered with Defra and Forest Research to investigate how Internet of Things (IoT) technology can help monitor tree growth and support research into the role of trees in tackling climate change, with trials currently underway in Surrey and Northumberland.
Bottles made of plastic that persist in the environment for hundreds of years could become a pollution of the past thanks to the discovery of an enzyme that eats the substance, and work by scientists to further improve it by engineering.
A future where microbial factories full of E.coli bacteria could be one of the solutions to carbon capture, plus the production of useful formic acid, has been imagined by Scientists from the University of Dundee, following work with industry partners.
A British team of scientists has successfully pioneered a way to enable manufacturers to convert CO2 into polyols, a key building block of polyurethane plastic, which is widely used to make a wide range of products.
Aluminium ion batteries developed by Taiwanese and USA research could displace the lead-acid batteries commonly found in automotive applications in just two years, visitors to the All Energy event in Glasgow discovered.
University science researchers have developed a new method they say has the potential to revolutionise the search for, design and production of new materials.
British scientists will continue vital Antarctic research into major issues facing the planet, thanks to a £100 million programme commissioned by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) that will take place over the next ten years.
The UK Space Agency's International Partnership Programme has kick-started a project to manage and protect 300 million hectares of tropical forests, with Edinburgh sustainability software and data company Ecometrica winning a contract worth more than £14 million.
Rising sea surface temperatures are causing marine-related tropical diseases and harmful algal blooms to spread towards the poles with recorded impact upon human health, a top marine and health scientist reveals.
