    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.

Epson invention allows office workers to make their own paper from shredded documents

Workers will be able to make their own paper within the walls of their worklaces because Epson has developed the world's first compact office papermaking system capable of producing new paper from shredded waste paper without the use of water.

Epson papermaking1The company states that the product has the potential to revolutionise office recycling, by securely destroying documents and turning them into office paper using a dry process, organisations that install a PaperLab will be able to produce paper of various sizes, thicknesses, and types.

PaperLab makes paper without the use of water – ordinarily it takes about a cup of water to make a single A4 sheet of paper. The system can produce about 14 A4 sheets per minute and 6,720 sheets in an eight-hour day.

Epson plans to put the new "PaperLab" into commercial production in Japan in 2016, with sales in other regions to be decided at a later date. Businesses and government offices that install a PaperLab in a backyard area will be able to produce paper varying from office paper and business card paper to paper that is colored and scented.

The enduring universal appeal of paper lies in its simplicity as a communication tool. In fact, recent research carried out by Epson in Europe, revealed that 77% of employees across Italy, France, Spain, Germany and the UK, saw printers as vital in terms of helping them effectively work with 49% stating that not having printing capabilities would significantly impact their productivity.

Information on the highly portable and always convenient medium of paper is easy to read, easy to digest, and easy to remember. Furthermore, 61% of survey respondents said that they believe "there is more chance of making errors when editing an electronic document than editing a print-out" with 88% of respondents printing on average around 21 items per day which equates to around 83 pages.

Epson set out to develop technology that would change the paper cycle. With PaperLab, the company says it aims to give new value to paper and stimulate recycling.
