    GlasPort Bio Ltd - overall Rushlight Award winners, reduce gas & add value to manure

    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

    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.

    ion science VOC sensorThe 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.

Web tool eases European electric car journeys after Irish pilot

A web based electric car journey planning tool for Europe, the BATTERIE Project, has been launched at Titanic Belfast after piloting in Ireland, and is now available for public use.

eleccarcharge1 copyThe initiative was launched by two of Northern Ireland's leading authorities on renewable energy, South West College and Action Renewables.

BATTERIE, a European Regional Development Funded project, through the Atlantic Area, was established to improve the cooperation and links between various transport services across Europe and to promote the application of smart technologies and usage of alternative fuels.

The unique journey planning tool can be accessed online at www.egomap.eu. Optimised for mobile use, users can enter start point and destination information and then receive suggested routes that consider electric vehicle charging facilities as well providing information on the cost of the journey, CO2 emissions and savings.

The tool compares public transport and private combustion vehicle travel against electric vehicle travel providing users with a breakdown of transport fares and emissions. It also takes into account how long it may take to charge an electric vehicle - if needed on the journey - in order to give users the most efficient route to their destination.

Speking from the conference on the topic at Titanic Belfast, Dr John Harrison, BATTERIE Project Manager, South West College said: "Over the last 4 years as part of the BATTERIE Project, South West College's Innovation and Technology hub has been developing pilot journeys to test alternative fuel vehicles in order to improve electric car infrastructure.

eleccarcharge2"We are thrilled to be launching the world's first dedicated online intermodal journey planning tool and would like to encourage all electric vehicle drivers to avail of the service.

"Northern Ireland has one of the highest concentrations of electric vehicle charge points in the world – 174 in total including 160 fast chargers and 14 rapid chargers – making it the ideal location to pilot this initiative."

Actions Renewables, BATTERIE Project Manager, Terry Waugh commented: "A vibrant, alternatively fuelled transport sector not only helps the environment but can contribute massively to economic growth and transport efficiency. Our participation in the BATTERIE Project has helped to put Northern Ireland on the map for our first-class research and advances in the transport sector.

"As electric cars grow in popularity, an accurate and user friendly planning tool can make the experience even more enjoyable. Indeed, one of the BATTERIE closing conference delegates drove his electric car here from the Netherlands, and used the electric planning tool when he reached Northern Ireland. "
