    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.

The UK Parliament is introducing a new range of compostable products to replace existing single-use plastic items.

There has been enough debate over the need to improve urban air quality. Now's the time for decisive action to be taken to ensure air quality targets are achieved and to meet the public demand for cleaner air and reduced traffic congestion, say Ashley Bijster, Managing Director of Imperial, and Tim Daniels, Sales Director of Videalert.

Marston's, the brewery and pub group which operates over 1,600 pubs, have confirmed that 100% of the estate, including all of its managed houses and taverns are now operating as Zero to Waste Landfill two years ahead of their own target.

As part of the strategic partnership between the Automobile Association and Chargemaster, which is now part of BP, all 4,000 or so AA inspected hotels and B&Bs are being offered the opportunity to have electric vehicle charging points installed at no cost and integrated into the UK's largest public network.

The Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board is reminding farmers and growers to review their water usage and is advising of steps to build resilience into their long-term supply, as UK temperatures are confirmed as hitting record highs.

Noel Morrin, Executive Vice President for Sustainability at Stora Enso writes: "Here's a bold statement but, we think, a true one: anything made from fossil-fuel materials today, can be made from a tree tomorrow. That means a future where there are sustainable alternatives to plastics, created from the fibres from the forest.

The Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) has awarded £6 million to investigate the effects that potentially hazardous chemicals used by humans are having on UK habitats and wildlife.

The Canary Wharf Group feel they can prove plastic pollution-free living is possible for other urban centres with their pledge to become the world's first Plastic Free Commercial Centre - joining forces with the Surfers Against Sewage campaign.
