BOTHELL, WASHINGTON, UNITED STATES, January 28, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Cascade Environmental (“Cascade”), the leading field services contractor of drilling and remediation services, recently added new in situ groundwater remediation chemistries to its suite of turnkey services for the characterization and optimized remediation of contaminated sites throughout the United States.

“It makes sound business and technical sense for the country’s leading remediation service provider to supply turnkey solutions to our clients. What was missing from our robust toolbox was our own chemistries specifically tied to addressing the challenges we’ve seen at hundreds of sites over the last twenty-five years,” said Eliot Cooper, VP of Technology. “The new products are an addition to the range of remedial technology options available to our clients including injection, thermal, permeable reactive barriers, emplacement, soil mixing, and others. We are deeply committed to the continued support of our clients through our advanced characterization, design support, injection, and fracturing capabilities regardless of the injection chemistries they choose.”

Cascade is partnering with Höganäs, the world leader in metal powder solutions, on one of four new injection chemistries. CleanER™ iZVI® is a colloidal zero valent iron for chlorinated solvent remediation. “Höganäs is very pleased to work with Cascade to deliver the next step in the evolution of injectable ZVI,” said Louis LeBrun, President & General Manager of Höganäs Environment Solutions based in Cary, North Carolina. “Our new CleanER iZVI product is just the latest development in Höganäs' 223-year history of iron-based chemistry and metallurgy, and we’re excited to have a remediation industry pioneer like Cascade support our continued growth in the environmental remediation marketplace.”

A total of four chemistries will be available by June. CleanER iZVI and SourceKill℠, an emulsified zero valent iron for DNAPL and chlorinated solvent source remediation, are available for order. Cascade's colloidal activated carbon for chlorinated solvent and petroleum remediation and encapsulated enzymes for petroleum remediation are expected to hit the market by June.

“We are very excited about assisting our consulting clients with meeting their client’s remediation expectations through these new chemistries. Consultants now have access to advanced cost-effective and risk reduction technologies under one contractual umbrella while continuing to work with the industry leader,” said Scott Wisher, Senior Vice President. “We also anticipate expanding the colloidal carbon to address emerging contaminants like PFAS.”

Innovation in recycling & sterilisation technologies has resulted in a breakthrough for the recycling of PPE.

We are on the brink of launching some large scale PPE recycling schemes on the UK high-street.”

— Izzie Glazzard

HULL, YORKSHIRE, UNITED KINGDOM, January 22, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Innovation in recycling & sterilisation technologies has resulted in a breakthrough for the recycling of PPE. Yorkshire based company ReWorked has developed a full-service operation, to process disposable face-masks, gloves, visors etc. for public & private sectors.

In collaboration with Thermal Compaction Group (TCG), testing has begun to recycle face-masks from The Royal Cornwall Hospitals Trust. Previously their masks would have been incinerated; a process that releases harmful emissions such as carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. Through further exploration, the joint companies hope the scheme will roll out to hospitals across the UK.

ReWorked marketing manager Izzie Glazzard tells us, "We are on the brink of launching some large scale PPE recycling schemes on the UK high-street. It provides an invaluable service for customers who want protection from Covid-19, but don't want the environment to suffer as a consequence".

The driving force behind the scheme is the rise in PPE usage seen worldwide due to the pandemic. Estimates say globally we are using 129 billion disposable masks & 65 billion plastic gloves every month. The WWF says "If only 1% of the worlds face masks are disposed of incorrectly, 10 million masks will still end up polluting fragile ecosystems every month."

How it works (The innovation)
The PPE waste is collected, using various methods depending on the location. After a 72 hour quarantine, the waste undergoes a lengthy process of shredding & washing.

The shredded plastic is layered onto what ReWorked call their "Stormboard Mill", where it is heated to over 200C & pressed into a solid board. These durable plastic boards can be used as building materials or cut to become furniture, bins & other practical items.

ReWorked refers to the process as Reclaiming The Mask, as part of their ongoing #ReclaimTheMask campaign, urging companies to take control & responsibility for the growing PPE waste issue.

NASA might be welcoming the first female leader since its development

NASA might be welcoming the first female leader since its development

NASA might be welcoming the first female leader since its development”

— Karol Donimirsky

CONGO, January 21, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — NASA will be changing leadership after a long streak of male leadership. This move comes after the agency decided to break the inclusivity barrier by procuring a female leader. President-Elect Joe Biden and his vice Kamala Harris may be the new administration administering this change. Jack Burns, the Astrophysics and Planetary Science professor of the University of Colorado hinted at this move. He further said that the new administration is likely to encounter rumors that they would have to clarify. He spoke this in the 237th meeting of the American Astronomical Society (AAS) held through a webinar in the coronavirus pandemic season.

Burns reiterated that his thoughts about the next NASA administrator are that it would be a woman. This move would mark a milestone in the leadership of the agency. Moreover, the names of candidates vying for this position have been forwarded, and they are a perfect match for this job. This leaves the leaders at the determining end of the recruitment process. Nevertheless, Burns’s comments have a huge impact since he has served in numerous capacities on the NASA recruitment panel, being a member of the team that facilitated NASA’s choice of the incumbent administrator. Also, Joe Biden has made historic changes in his other selections. Some of the notable nominations have encouraged Avril Haines, the first female Director of National Intelligence, and Pete Buttigieg, a member of the LGBTQ community holding Secretary of Transportation’s position.

However, Burns hid the details of the possible candidates with a high probability of selection. The media quickly translated this information to mean that they may select one of the female candidates. Notable selections include Ellen Stofan and Pam Melroy, who will be part of the Biden administration once it comes into action.

New Research Shows Private Jet Travel To Continue Strong Rebound; Retain New Customers Post-COVID-19

Security concerns may lead private aviation users to switch more flights away from the airlines; Over 95% of new flyers saying they will continue post-pandemic

MIAMI, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, January 21, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Key highlights of the Private Jet Card Comparisons' Subscriber Flash Survey:

– 96% of new private jet travelers plan to continue after the pandemic
– 30% of respondents say domestic terror threats and unrest may increase their percentage of private flights away from the airlines
– 68% expect to travel internationally despite new COVID-19 requirements that include private jet travelers
– Subscribers spent an average of $211,607 on jet card purchases over the past 18 months

Private aviation will continue to be a top performer in the travel and tourism segment in the near term and is well-positioned to keep its momentum in a post-COVID-19 world, according to new research.

A flash survey of subscribers to private aviation solutions buyer's guide Private Jet Card Comparisons found nearly 30% may switch some airline flights to private aircraft amidst concerns about domestic terror threats and unrest in the wake of the riots at the Capitol.

The research also found despite the upcoming COVID-19 testing requirements for anyone entering the U.S., more than two-thirds expect to travel internationally.

What’s more, 96% of respondents who started or restarted flying privately due to the coronavirus say they plan to continue after the pandemic ends.

Respondents to the survey, conducted via email from Jan. 15 to Jan. 19, were evenly split between subscribers who had been using private aviation before the pandemic and those who had started or restarted, seeking to minimize COVID-19 exposure. Previous research shows fewer than 20 touch points when using a private jet compared to over 700 with the airlines.

Over four in 10 respondents (41%) who are newbies said they would continue to fly privately "regularly" after the pandemic is over. A further 55% said they would use private aviation “once in a while after the pandemic is over.” Only 4% expect to stop private flights.

"The results show private aviation should expect a significant net gain in customers and flying post-pandemic," said Doug Gollan, Founder, and Editor-in-Chief of Private Jet Card Comparisons. "New private aviation users were very clear that once they started flying privately, they came to understand the broad benefits. Sadly, domestic unrest is now becoming a consideration as well."

FOR NEW PRIVATE FLYERS – POST-COVID-19 PRIVATE JET TRAVEL OUTLOOK:

– 41% plan to continue flying privately regularly after the pandemic is over
– 55% plan to fly privately once in a while after the pandemic is over
– 4% plan to stop flying privately once the pandemic is over

“I’m really not sure why I didn’t do this sooner,” said one new private traveler. Another added, “You can buy the cheapest car, or you can pay more for a nicer car, with a better ride, safer and more comfortable. Private jets are just a better way to travel if you can afford it, and if you can afford it, it makes a lot of sense in so many ways.”

A McKinsey analysis last year estimated there were only around 100,000 regular private aviation users in the U.S., although 1.5 million affluent households have the means. Private air charters are back to 90% of pre-COVID levels, largely driven by new users.

Of subscribers who were flying privately prior to the pandemic, 38% said they would likely increase the percentage of their flights using private aviation after the pandemic is over, with 55% saying usage will be similar to before COVID-19.

FOR EXISTING PRIVATE FLYERS – POST-COVID-19 PRIVATE JET TRAVEL OUTLOOK:

– 55% plan to continue flying privately regularly after the pandemic is over
– 38% plan to increase the percentage of their flights using private aviation after the pandemic is over
– 7% plan to decrease the percentage of their flights using private aviation after the pandemic is over

Several respondents were skeptical of cleaning and social distancing procedures by the airlines. Others added that decreased airline schedules mean much longer travel times and more problematic connections.

The riot at the Capitol, threats to elected officials in airports, and the possibility of more domestic terrorism and unrest is also spurring more respondents to private jets. Nearly a third (32%) of new private flyers said they might end up switching some flights away from the airlines to private aviation.

FOR NEW PRIVATE FLYERS – RESPONSE TO CAPITOL RIOT/DOMESTIC THREATS:

– 68% won’t change their mix of flights using private aviation and the airlines
– 16% may switch some flights to private aviation instead of using the airlines
– 16% say if there are continued incidents, unrest, or attacks, they may switch flights from the airlines to private aviation

“The stuff at the airport was quite concerning,” said one subscriber. Another said, “We fly to several state capitals, and there are less flights, to begin with, so this just makes it an easy decision to go private…It certainly makes sense to have a plane at the airport waiting to go if something did happen.”

Those who were flying privately prior to COVID-19 were less likely (26%) to be thinking about switching flights from airlines, with a number of respondents offering comments like, “No impact. I only fly private.”

FOR EXISTING PRIVATE FLYERS – RESPONSE TO CAPITOL RIOTS/DOMESTIC THREATS:

– 74% Won’t change their mix of flights using private aviation and the airlines
– 16% may switch some flights to private aviation instead of using the airlines
– 10% say If there are continued incidents, unrest, or attacks, they may switch flights from the airlines to private aviation

Overall, 30% of respondents say they may move more of their flying to private aviation due to concerns about domestic unrest.

Just over two-thirds of respondents (68%) say they expect to travel internationally despite the new U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) COVID-19 testing requirements, which include private jet arrivals.

FOR IMPACT OF CDC COVID-19 TESTING REQUIREMENTS FOR PRIVATE JET TRAVELERS:

– 31% say I would travel outside the US if I have confidence I can get tested locally before returning
– 28% say the new CDC requirements make it less likely I will travel outside the US
– 25% say I plan to travel outside the US, and it doesn’t have an impact
– 16% say I would travel outside the US if the hotel/resort provides testing on-property

About a third (31%) said they would travel internationally so long as they have confidence they can get tested locally before returning. A further 28% said the new CDC requirements would make it less likely they take international trips, while 25% said the new rule, which goes into effect on Jan. 26, doesn’t have an impact. Some 16% said they would travel internationally so long as the hotel or resorts provides on-property testing.

PRIVATE JET SOLUTIONS

In terms of private aviation solutions, 83% of Private Jet Card Comparisons subscribers use jet cards, 32% charter on a trip-by-trip basis, 12% catch rides on friends’ private jets, 6% have fractional shares, 4% own their own private jets, and 1% fly on private aircraft for companies they work for, but don’t own. Numbers add up to more than 100% due to subscribers who have multiple solutions.

Only 1% say they use semi-private services where they can split costs or buy single seats. Some 3% said they haven’t flown privately yet, but are looking at options, while under 1% said they haven’t flown privately in the past 24 months and don’t expect to fly privately in the next year.

Of subscribers who bought or renewed a jet card that included a deposit within the past 18 months, the average deposit was $211,607. Additionally, 6% purchased pay-as-you-go jet cards and memberships where they paid a joining fee but didn’t have to wire any funds to keep on the account.

For jet card users, 61% said it was the first time they bought a jet card from that provider, 40% renewed with an existing provider, and 26% said they didn’t need to buy additional hours. Numbers add up to more than 100% as some users bought jet cards from multiple providers. About 1 in 5 (19%) reported switching providers.

The survey garnered 145 responses with a 4% +/- margin of error. A donation of $10 per respondent is being made to Feeding America, enough to provide 14,500 meals to those in need.

ABOUT PRIVATE JET CARD COMPARISONS

The annual price of a 12-month subscription to the online private aviation buyer’s guide is $250 and comes with personal assistance via its JET CARD DECIDER service. Subscribers can compare providers and programs by 65 variables, including safety standards, company size and history, key policies, inclusions, and amenities, including lead time for bookings and cancelations, surcharges, and discounts. Exclusive QUICK COMPARE FLIGHT PRICING enables subscribers to compare the cost for specific flights between dozens of providers in seconds.

Unlike lead generation websites, Private Jet Card Comparisons does not sell subscriber contact data or accept referral fees from jet companies. The promise is to protect their privacy and offer subscribers continually updated data and unbiased guidance.

Green Boom’s USDA Certified Biobased Absorbents Clean up Oil Spills and Eliminate Landfill Plastic

Procured by Government Agencies, Corporations, OSROs seeking Sustainable Solutions

Green Boom is honored to be part of the solution as the entire planet is putting an increased focus on counteracting the effects of climate change.”

— Green Boom Co-Founder Sudhir Sharma

ATLANTA, GA, UNITED STATES, January 20, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Green Boom will proudly display the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Certified Biobased Product Certification on its entire family of absorbents. Green Boom’s 100 percent biodegradable oil spill prevention, response and remediation products will now display a unique USDA label that highlights its percentage of biobased content. 2021 will see new policies implemented to tackle climate change, and Green Boom products fuel that positive trend for sustainability-focused Government Agencies, Corporations, OSROs and more.

“Green Boom is honored to be part of the solution as the entire planet is putting an increased focus on counteracting the effects of climate change,” said Green Boom Co-Founder Sudhir Sharma. “Our products don’t just move oil from the spill site to the landfill. Green Boom products completely eliminate the spill. We believe that our revolutionary products are going to disrupt the oil spill industry. Our green products are cost-comparative, readily available and perform as well as or better than their conventional counterparts.”

Available in industry-standard sized pillows, socks, booms along with custom sizes, Green Boom’s products are made from patent-pending biomass up-cycling technologies that use sustainably sourced agricultural wastes and textiles. Led by a team with broad chemical engineering experience, Green Boom created a technology that converts renewable, biodegradable and low-value agricultural materials into water-repellent, oil-only absorbents.

“We applaud Green Boom Corp. for earning the USDA Certified Biobased Product label," said Kate Lewis, USDA BioPreferred Program. “Products from Green Boom Corp. are contributing to an ever-expanding marketplace that adds value to renewable agriculture commodities, creates jobs in rural communities and decreases our reliance on petroleum.”

Third-party verification for a product's biobased content is administered through the USDA BioPreferred Program, an initiative created by the 2002 Farm Bill (and recently reauthorized by the 2018 Farm Bill). One of the goals of the BioPreferred Program is to increase the development, purchase and use of biobased products. Biobased products, through petroleum displacement, have played an increasingly important role in reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions that exacerbate global climate change.

About the USDA BioPreferred Program and Certified Biobased Product label
The BioPreferred Program is a USDA-led initiative that assists the development and expansion of markets for biobased products. The BioPreferred Program is transforming the marketplace for biobased products through two initiatives: mandatory purchasing requirements for Federal Agencies and Federal contractors and voluntary product certification and labeling. Biobased products span a diverse range of applications, such as lubricants, cleaning products, chemicals and bioplastics. The USDA Certified Biobased Product label communicates a product's biobased content. Expressed as a percentage, biobased content is the ratio of non-fossil organic carbon (new organic carbon) to total organic carbon in a product. New organic carbon is derived from recently-created materials. The total organic carbon in a product consists of new organic carbon and old organic carbon that originates from fossil carbon materials, such as petroleum, coal, or natural gas. More than 3,500 products have earned the USDA Certified Biobased Product label.
