SNF investing $1.2bn to meet Polyacrylamide (PAM) demand

first_img Image: SNF has doubled its global capacity of polyDADMAC and Polyamines. Photo: Courtesy of David Mark from Pixabay. The last 2 years SNF has added 75,000 MT/yr. powder-grade PAM production capacity globally to match the increased demand for EOR (Enhanced Oil Recovery) applications.  By the end of 2020, SNF will add 75,000 MT/yr. This 150,000 MT/yr new capacity is spread across several regions, thus providing easy access to our products.At the same time, through new investments and debottlenecking, SNF added 500,000 MT/yr. production capacity for emulsion-grade PAM within and 100,000 MT/yr. outside the U.S.  This substantial increase is mainly driven by demand within the U.S. hydraulic fracturing (fracking) market as well as emerging fracking demands outside the U.S.  Here in the U.S., SNF will complete an additional emulsion-grade PAM expansion of 100,000 MT/yr. this year by early Q4.  SNF’s goal is to have a total emulsion-grade PAM production capacity in the U.S. of 1 million MT/yr. by the end of 2020.To support this growth in polymer production, SNF continues to invest in upstream monomer production capabilities as well.  Cationic monomer expansion in China is complete, bringing an additional 40,000 MT/yr. of ADAME to the market.  While here in the U.S., SNF will invest in new ADAME monomer capacity bringing an additional 50,000 MT/yr. capacity over existing global capacity of 160,000 MT/yr. by the end of 2022.  Acrylamide monomer expansion continues in each region as PAM production volumes grow.  In the U.S., SNF will add 100,000 MT/yr. (expandable to 200,000 MT/yr.) in 2021.For organic coagulants, SNF has doubled its global capacity of polyDADMAC and Polyamines to support the future demands of both product lines.Source: Company Press Release.

Welsh agency Darlows needs your help to raise £6,000 for children’s charity

first_imgA leading estate agent in Wales is to hold a charity ball on June 30th that it hopes will raise £6,000 for children’s charity Magic Moments, but which it needs to sell more tickets for to hit its target.Darlows, which has ten branches across Cardiff and South Wales, has sold tickets worth £2,500 so far but is asking other agents in the area and beyond to come along to the event at The Village Hotel in Coryton, Cardiff.Tickets are £40 each and include red carpet entry, a three-course meal plus the hotel is to donate 10% of its bar takings to the charity.A raffle will also take place with prizes donated by several local conveyancing and home loans companies including Convey Law, Spicketts Battrick and Just Mortgages.Magic Moments supports 12 children’s hospices and also organises annual trips to Disneyland in Paris for the families of those with very ill children, or those who have been recently bereaved.£1 million raisedThe charity was set up in 1998 by Alick Smith, the then chairman of Darlows’ parent company Spicerhaart with his wife with Val and since then it has raised over £1 million.“I can’t begin to describe the difference this charity makes to children who may have very little time left to live and also to their families, who can continue to receive support even after having lost a child,” says organiser Gareth Brackin, one of Darlows’ regional partners (left).“All the community has pulled together to help these children and their families, some of whom will be attending the event as guests.“We have already trebled what we thought we would achieve and the ball hasn’t taken place yet, so we are on target to raise around £6,000.”To buy tickets, email Lisa Haycock at Darlows.  Gareth Brackin Just Mortgages Alick Smith Cardiff Sequence charity ball charity raising Spicer Haart Spicketts Battrick Convey Law Darlows June 20, 2018Nigel LewisAny comments?

US Navy Integrates Surface Warfare Capability in Maritime Environment

first_img Share this article US Navy Integrates Surface Warfare Capability in Maritime Environment Authorities View post tag: americas US Navy engineers used technologies supporting the science of integration to guide live gun fire onto distant targets, demonstrating a new integrated surface warfare capability in a maritime environment, Sept. 29. View post tag: Maritime Follow @navaltoday View post tag: Surface View post tag: capability View post tag: Environment View post tag: Navy October 3, 2014 View post tag: News by topic Back to overview,Home naval-today US Navy Integrates Surface Warfare Capability in Maritime Environment View post tag: Naval View post tag: US Navy Military and civilian leaders observed as unmanned surface and air vehicles – integrated with naval guns and the Aegis combat system – relayed targeting data to operators engaging fictitious threats on the Potomac River Test Range.“This is a major first step in demonstrating an integrated surface warfare capability utilizing unmanned vehicles in support of the key engagement functions of plan, detect, control, engage and assess,” said Neil Baron, Naval Surface Warfare Center Dahlgren Division (NSWCDD) distinguished scientist for combat control. “We are working hard at focusing on the integration sciences to deal with mission engineering challenges for surface warfare.”Specifically, Baron and his team of Navy scientists and engineers used the science of integration to make surface warfare systems interoperable with unmanned air and unmanned surface vehicles, enabling streaming identification and shot correction data to naval gunnery throughout the test.Surface warfare officers evaluating the technology joined civilian technologists at the event to prove the Navy can bridge interoperability gaps – known as the interstitial space – between complex system-of-systems.“The ability to send a small, persistent unmanned system down range in hostile territory for real-time gun or missile engagement spotting and targeting is needed by warships,” said NSWCDD Engagement Systems Department Military Deputy Cmdr. Marc Williams. “The technology has the potential to be important for surface ships, especially relating to Aegis weapon system, Naval Surface Fire Support, and surface warfare.”Williams – the surface warfare tactical action officer for the experiment – ordered a gun engagement on a fictitious threat based on identification and targeting data he saw streaming from an unmanned surface vehicle.At that point, the commander used a deployed Scan Eagle unmanned aerial vehicle’s streaming video data to spot, precisely target, engage and continually support reengagement through gun targeting corrections to the MK160 gun weapon system operator.“Scan Eagle has been deployed on guided missile destroyers for years to provide persistent electro-optical and infrared surveillance,” said Williams, adding that, “it has been used for Naval Surface Fire Support spotting to walk gun rounds onto an enemy target, but not in an automated fashion like in this experiment.”Moreover, Williams used a Navy technology called Visual Automated Scoring System (VASS) to instantly correct the gun targeting.The NSWCDD-patented system is an automated, computerized method for determining gunfire miss distances using video data. With a non-line of sight weapon system, VASS allows the gunner to adapt gun pointing angle and converge gunfire onto a target without having to risk the lives of forward observers.The NSWCDD-funded initiatives featured a virtual ship called the USS Dahlgren, VASS adaptive fire control, and new mission engineering efforts to link surface combatant warfare systems with unmanned vehicles.Throughout the test, the cybernetic USS Dahlgren responded to reports of hostile threats by searching intelligence and data across multiple air and ship control operational systems, maximizing response accuracy and timeliness.Bridging the interstitial space between Navy surface combatants, integrated systems, and adaptive fire control is vital to accomplish key fiscal year 2015 Navy objectives – proliferating unmanned systems, integrating unmanned systems into the Navy culture, and developing, fielding, and deploying unmanned systems in the air, on and under the sea, and on the ground.[mappress]Press Release, October 03, 2014; Image: US Navy View post tag: Warfare View post tag: Integrateslast_img read more

Saïd Business School head becomes private secretary to Kate Middleton

first_imgThe present Chief Operating Officer and Associate Dean at the Saïd Business School, Catherine Quinn, has been appointed as the Duchess of Cambridge’s new private secretary.Ms Quinn, who will leave her present role in October 2017, joined the Saïd Business school following leadership roles at The Middle Temple and the Wellcome Trust. Her new role will include organising the Duchess’ private diary and working with her on official visits.She will replace Rebecca Priestly, who has held the position since 2012 and was Kate’s first private secretary.Ms Quinn, who also has an MBA from the Saïd and is on the board of the Charity commission for England and Wales, brings extensive experience in the business and charitable sectors to the job. There has been speculation that her appointment, and her interests, reflect a shift in the Duchess’ interpretation of her role.Quinn’s Salary for the role has not been released, but it is expected to be in the six-figures with the bill being payed by Prince Charles’ income from the Duchy of Cornwall, which he inherited as the eldest son of the reigning monarch.Peter Tufuno, the Peter Moores Dean at the Saïd, said that: “All of us at Saïd Business School have a huge amount of pride and excitement for Catherine and her exciting new role.At the same time, we will miss her greatly. She has contributed hugely to the growth and success of the school. She has been a very valued colleague and a professional, principled, and inspirational leader. We wish her every success in the next stage of her career.”last_img read more

Mayor’s Message: Feb. 22

first_imgMayor Jay Gillian Dear Friends,A new state law that went into effect on Jan. 1 requires battery-powered smoke detectors to have 10-year sealed battery units. This change will affect many properties that do not have hard-wired smoke detectors.The new equipment is powered by long-life batteries that never need to be replaced – homeowners can rest assured that their alarms are always on.After 10 years, the entire units must be replaced.Starting immediately, properties without hard-wired detectors must have the new 10-year sealed battery smoke detectors to pass inspection for transfers of title and rental units.The new equipment is readily available at local hardware and home improvement stores. Click here for more information. Earlier this week, crews demolished a building on city-owned property along the marshes near 36th Street and Bay Avenue.This structure has served many purposes over the years – from a rescue squad station to a dryland training facility for local crew teams – but it is no longer viable.I have instructed the city team to preserve this site as open space. Because it has a little elevation, we may try to create a few unpaved parking spots to accommodate cars during flood tides, and we may install some small playground equipment. But no new buildings are planned for the site.The city team is finishing work on the draft municipal budget for 2019 and the capital plan for 2019-2023. On Thursday, Feb. 28, I will deliver my annual State of the City address, and my administration will make a capital plan presentation and deliver the draft budget to City Council.The public meeting will be in Council Chambers on the third floor of City Hall. It starts at 6 p.m., but Council is expected to go into executive session for 30 to 45 minutes to conduct interviews for a Zoning Board appointment before moving on to the rest of the agenda.Warm regards,Mayor Jay A.
