    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.

Bentley Motors to get UK's largest solar carport at its Crewe factory

Construction has started of a large scale commercial carport at Bentley Motors’ manufacturing headquarters in Crewe, Cheshire.

In a six-month project due to complete in September 2018, FlexiSolar, the Cambridge based solar carport specialist, will construct what is set to become the UK’s largest solar carport system to date, with 10,000 solar panels with a capacity of 2.7MW. The bespoke solar structures will shelter approximately 1,378 car parking spaces at the Bentley manufacturing facility.

flexisolar bentley motors copyBentley Motors creates luxury cars at its factory in Crewe, Cheshire. The manufacturing site already demonstrates a commitment to solar as an onsite generation technology, having installed a 5MW solar rooftop installation in 2013.

FlexiSolar is backed by Innovate UK, the UK’s innovation agency driven to support the science and technology innovations that will grow the UK economy.

Managing Director of FlexiSolar, Robert Carpenter said: “This large scale solar carport system is a clear example of an integrated energy solution; and one that utilises an existing parking area without sacrificing valuable land resources.”

In Crewe, FlexiSolar’s V-Frame Double Row Mono Pitch solar carport design will appear across twenty-seven parking rows. It has been designed and manufactured by the FlexiSolar team, with the project funded by Guinness Asset Management under a power purchase agreement.

Bentley Motors' headquarters in Crewe, north west England is home to all of its operations including design, R&D, engineering and production of the company's four luxury car model lines, Bentayga, Continental, Flying Spur and Mulsanne. Bentley employs around 4,000 people at Crewe.
