Check light strands and other decorations for signs of wear and tear

Do not use a staple or nail to hang light strands, and always be aware of overhead power line locations when carrying or using ladders or stringing lights.”

— Erin Hollinshead

SPRINGFIELD, ILLINOIS, UNITED STATES, November 30, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — While decorating can be one more thing to mark off an extensive holiday to-do list, take a little extra time when using electrical light strands or other plug-in decorations and while using a ladder.

Holiday decorating-related injuries include those caused by falls, cuts and back strains, although they can also be related to electrical hazards. For example, “do not use a staple or nail to hang light strands, and always be aware of overhead power line locations when carrying or using ladders or stringing lights,” says Erin Hollinshead, executive director of Safe Electricity.

“Like with any home task, it is best to take your time, think before you start and make safety a priority, which includes assessing the condition of lights and other decorations powered by electricity,” she adds.

Be on the lookout for damaged light strands, plugs and electrical cords, and discard items that are cracked, old or frayed. Safe Electricity provides these additional holiday decorating safety tips:

• When decorating outside, be aware of overhead power lines. Imagine a 10-foot circle around a power line, and do not let any body part or item (such as light strands or a ladder) enter that 10-foot area.
• When securing light strands, do not nail them into place; instead, use plastic hooks.
• Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for the number of light strands that can be daisy chained (plugged into one another).
• Make sure lights and extension cords are properly rated; that is, those that are used outside should be rated for outdoor use.
• Before hanging lights, check the strands for broken bulbs as well as fraying or bare wires that could present electrical hazards. Always discard damaged strands.
• Turn off all lights before leaving home or going to sleep or ensure they are timed to do so.
• Do not run cords under carpets, through doorways or in a way that could cause a tripping hazard.
• Plug lights and decorations that are used outdoors into an outlet with ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) protection. GFCIs detect and prevent dangerous situations where an electric shock could occur.
• When using holiday lights, whether indoors or out, look for certification by an accredited independent testing laboratory such as Underwriters Laboratories.
• Puppies and other pets love to chew on electrical cords, including light strands and extension cords. Keep cords out of sight or hidden with a cord cover.
• Be careful when using extension cords around crawling babies and toddlers. Check for long electrical cords that span the floor and secure them with cord covers to avoid hazards.

Here is to a happy and safe holiday season. For more information on electrical safety, visit SafeElectricity.org.

New capital investments in Made-in-Canada clean fuels to achieve Canada’s climate targets, build resilient clean economy

Capital projects exceed $16 billion, which will add over 10 billion litres of new capacity and create thousands of green jobs by 2030.

Increasing our use of non-fossil clean fuels by over 10 billion litres would eliminate 25Mt of greenhouse gas emissions per year.”

— Ian Thomson

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA, November 30, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Significant investments are planned in Canada over the next decade for new advanced biofuel and synthetic fuel capacity, reports Advanced Biofuels Canada based on its annual capital projects survey. The results of the survey of low-carbon fuel producers, technology developers, and industry suppliers is an indicator of the scale and pace at which the sector could grow by 2030. Annual economic impact from domestic production was calculated to be $14.1 billion in 2030, almost tripling the sector’s current $5.3 billion economic impact in 2020.

A total of 56 projects are included in the 2021 survey results, representing project-level data on capital expenditures (‘capex’) in advanced biofuels and synthetic fuel production capacity, cleantech innovations, and expansion to clean fuel distribution infrastructure for the decade ahead.

Total project investments represent CA$16.3 billion in capex, with 21 projects exceeding $100 million. New investments are estimated to create 2,839 new full-time jobs and, in aggregate, the sector would support 28,000 direct and indirect jobs by 2030. These new clean fuel projects would increase Canada’s production capacity from 2.5 billion litres in 2020, to 10 billion litres by 2025 and over 12 billion litres by 2030.

ABFC President Ian Thomson highlighted the relevance of new capacity. “Increasing our use of non-fossil clean fuels by over 10 billion litres would eliminate 25Mt of greenhouse gas emissions per year. These tonnes would be a game-changer in bridging the large shortfall to reach Canada’s 2030 GHG targets. Equally important, these projects produce very low carbon intensity fuels – some of them net-negative – so they have an indispensable role in a net-zero 2050 economy. The vast majority of new fuels are compatible with our existing liquid fuels infrastructure; these are highly cost-effective solutions that can be implemented rapidly to reduce our dependence on gasoline and diesel fuels.”

Advanced Biofuels Canada released a 2021 capex infographic with detailed survey results. The survey collected project data from members and publicly announced projects, and utilizes economic impact and biofuels use data released earlier this year.

“These projects are not guaranteed,” said Thomson. “Canada faces stiff competition for clean fuel capital investments. Clean fuel standards (CFS) have been the primary driver of investments in California and BC, but Canada’s draft fuel standard, in comparison, is weak. Announced funding programs and tax policies need to scale up to support commercial scale development of clean fuel feedstocks and clean fuel production capacity. Advanced biofuels have a significant role to play in a rebuilding a resilient economy, with well-paying, stable green jobs in rural, remote, and Indigenous communities. Our competitors are rapidly expanding clean fuel production capacity and supply chains to support net-zero transportation that will replace gasoline and diesel with sustainable low-carbon biofuels. Canadians voted for climate action; investors are clearly signalling that the time to act is right now.”

Advanced Biofuels Canada/ Biocarburants avancés Canada is the national voice for producers, distributors, and technology developers of advanced biofuels and renewable synthetic fuels. Our members are global leaders in commercial production of these functional, scalable fuels, with over 15 billion litres of installed annual capacity worldwide. Our members include Canada’s leading advanced biofuels producers and technology innovators which are actively developing new clean liquid fuels production and distribution assets and operations in Canada.

Speaker Interview with Joseph Allcott, Novalux Energy Solutions Ltd ahead of the Energy from Waste Conference 2021

SMi Group reports: speaker interview with Novalux ahead of the Energy from Waste conference 2021, taking place on 1st – 2nd December.

LONDON, NON UNITED STATES OR CANADA, UNITED KINGDOM, November 30, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — SMi Group are pleased to announce the return of their Energy from Waste conference, which will return to London for its 14th year on 1st – 2nd December 2021.

Building on the success of last year, the 2021 event will bring together international waste management operators, developers, private equity financiers, technology providers and industrial end users to discuss the most crucial topics within Energy from Waste.

Interested parties can register via: http://www.efw-event.com/PR7

SMi Group caught up with Joseph Allcott, Managing Director, Novalux Energy Solutions Ltd for a speaker interview about his insight into the field of energy from waste.

Joe Allcott co-founded Novalux Energy in 2010 with an aim to disrupt the traditional energy model. By presenting customers with a choice of clean technology which makes good financial sense he aims to help reduce carbon emissions, provide solutions to excess waste, and help create a distributed energy system which is more sustainable and accessible.

See below the speaker interview:

What are the key attributes of Novalux which make it a market leader for the installation of distributed Energy from Waste plants in the UK?
Novalux has been installing renewable energy systems since 2010 and has diversified through many different technologies. This agnostic approach to technology has meant that we’ve always been able to recommend the best available systems for our customers’ needs without being tied to distribution contracts, whether that’s a multi-pronged approach to renewables or generating heat and/ or power, our main focus has always been designing and installing bespoke systems which are cost effective and beneficial to the environment. Our installation team has grown to 40+ engineers who have experience working with the technology we recommend. Because we’re not outsourcing the installation we’re able to better anticipate our customers’ needs during the quotation process, making our pricing more competitive than other renewables companies.

What do you see being the barriers to adoption of Energy from Waste plants?
The technology for generating heat and power from waste has been around for a long time, but it hasn’t been accessible for everyone. Our biggest challenge is making sure we educate our consumers that it is both possible and profitable on a smaller scale. The plant sizes we install range from 3.5MW or fuelled on around 10,000 tonnes of RDF per year up to 50MW which is up to 200,000 tonnes of RDF per year.

What are the fundamental things you would like people to understand about Energy from Waste technology?
There are two main types of technology which we would recommend when generating energy from waste through combustion: steam or thermal oil. Steam technology is more widely known as many of the large power plants rely on this, but it has major setbacks for smaller plants due to the relationship between high pressure and high cost. This means that to make installing a steam plant financially viable, the site must either have a need for steam in their processing, or require a system large enough to justify the CapEx. For thermal oil technology this isn’t an issue, making it ideal for plants up to 50MWth. Thermal oil can run at high temperatures without high pressure whilst pairing well with Organic Rankine Cycle, which also runs off thermal oil, harnessing heat from the boiler to generate power.

The technology we install is flexible, it can handle multiple fuel types including RDF, SRF, MSW, Straw, Biomass etc it’s even able to handle medical and hazardous waste. This is another reason why thermal oil technology is so versatile, it’s easy to change fuel which creates greater security for fuel in the future.

How does the technology which you recommend work?
Novalux recommends a Sugimat thermal oil boiler and Turboden ORC for the majority of decentralised energy from waste plants.
Horizon+ Rotary Thermal Oil Boiler:
Contrary to steam CHP systems, thermal oil boilers are able to run at high temperatures but at low pressure. This allows for lower capital and operational expenditure. After years of research and development the Horizon+ rotary boiler has been introduced to market. Due to the high ash content of RDF, the boiler continuously rotates whilst a granular sand is passed over the internal coil, automatically cleaning the heat exchange surface. Novalux recommends this technology to help customers cut down on maintenance and prolong the life of their system whilst ensuring peak performance at all times. The boiler can be paired with an Organic Rankine Cycle to generate power on site in addition to heat. Novalux has installed the first of these in the UK at Goodwood Estate.

Turboden Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC):
The Turboden ORC generates power from heat produced from a boiler. The technology runs off thermal oil so works well in conjunction with a Sugimat Horizon+ rotary boiler. The ORC has a closed loop circuit using a working fluid which continuously flows through a low RPM turbine to generate power. Due to the use of thermal oil the system has a high efficiency and is much simpler to operate in comparison to a steam turbine.

Syrinix Expands Distribution in Drought-Stricken West

The water and wastewater data insights provider expands footprint to California

We are hopeful that together, we can better serve our existing clients as they work toward a more water-efficient future, as well as prospects prioritizing water infrastructure improvements”

— James Dunning, CEO of Syrinix

HENDERSON, NEV., USA, November 30, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Dedicated to water and wastewater utilities and the communities they serve, Syrinix expands its distributor network to 11 with California-based D&H Water Systems. The announcement marks the company’s first partnership in the state, enhancing water and wastewater monitoring capabilities in a region severely impacted by unprecedented drought conditions.

“At Syrinix, we strive to work with groups that truly understand the value of water,” said James Dunning, CEO of Syrinix. “Some of our largest customers are in the states served by D&H – California and Nevada. We are hopeful that together, we can better serve our existing clients as they work toward a more water-efficient future, as well as prospects prioritizing water infrastructure improvements in years to come.”

Decreased rainfall and impacts associated with warmer temperatures have left more than 90 percent of America’s West in a drought, with the area’s primary water source, Lake Mead, sitting at its lowest level since construction nearly a century ago. Local and state agencies, such as the California Department of Water Resources, are developing initiatives aimed at conserving the precious supply, including improvements to aging water infrastructure.

Dunning adds, “The US has more than 240,000 pipe bursts each year, which can cost utility companies hundreds of thousands of dollars to repair. Our monitors help prevent these expenses, so it’s an attractive solution in areas where pipes are not posing health risks due to lead or other contaminant concerns but are simply in need of repair. We hope to serve as a valuable resource as utilities begin assessing their lines, and by having D&H in their backyard, it should help expedite the process.”

Nationally, the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that more than 1.7 trillion gallons of treated water are lost annually. Syrinix addresses this loss by monitoring for acoustic noise and pressure fluctuations to identify leaks early on before they turn into catastrophic pipe failures. The devices are easy to install and relocate across water systems, allowing utilities to save money while also conserving earth’s most precious resource.

“We are very excited to be part of the Syrinix family,” said Brian Doane, principal of D&H Water Systems. “Having the ability to provide the Syrinix solution to our existing customer base will benefit them greatly, as water loss and the monitoring of infrastructure is a big topic amongst water providers. The Syrinix solution is easy to implement, and we can’t wait to introduce this exciting technology to our customers.”

All Syrinix PIPEMINDER-ONE models are now available through D&H Water Systems representatives. Contact information is available at dandhwatersystems.com.
