Scott J Cooper Water Shortage

The flotsam and jetsam problem is so connected to climate change, pollution, and ocean acidification that you cannot deal with it in isolation.”

— Flotsam Scott J Cooper

FOWLER, CA, UNITED STATES, June 30, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Scott J Cooper Water Council released its review of Seaspiracy, the controversial Netflix documentary. Ever since the release of Seaspiracy, there has been an uproar among many who cannot come to terms with the staggering information is presented. The documentary sheds light on the fishing industry’s exploitative practices that lead to dolphin killings.

Moreover, the film illustrates the impact of the fishing industry on marine science. The biggest ecological nightmare for the world right now is that the very people who define sustainable fishing goals are the scientists with ties to the fishing industry.

The Netflix documentary has received its share of criticism. Fishing industry scientists are particularly unhappy about how the film has raised suspicion on the credibility of certification labels and ocean conservation groups. Those who defend Seaspiracy claim that the documentary was never supposed to be scientifically 100 percent accurate and there are much larger issues at hand.

The loudest criticism remains about the year 2048. The film used research to claim that the oceans would be empty by the year 2048. It was not received well by critics. In fact, several attempts were made to control media outlets from citing it.

Netflix and Seaspiracy have been on point on a variety of issues. Despite some minor errors, the documentary was right about the issue of overfishing. It depicted how seriously overfishing threatens marine biodiversity. "It is not only widely accepted but also comes with strong reasoning behind it," said Flotsam's Scott J. Cooper. "It talks about plastic pollution being highly destructive to marine life. It talks about how dirty the global seafood system is. This flotsam and jetsam problem is so connected to climate change, pollution, and ocean acidification that you cannot deal with it in isolation."

The documentary claims that the fishing industry receives $35 billion in subsidies annually. The subsidies primarily come from the European Union, the US, China, Japan, and Korea. The claims stand true as the UN had previously said that a dollar is subsidized for every $5 of exported fish products.

G.I.HAUL® Junk Removal Signs San Antonio as 7th Location

PITTSBURGH, PENNSYLVANIA, UNITED STATES, June 30, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — G.I.HAUL® Junk and Waste Removal, a Pittsburgh-based and veteran-owned and operated company, has continued its rapid expansion across the country and has signed their seventh franchise. San Antonio will be added to existing franchises in Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, Atlanta, Tampa, Austin, and Fort Worth. That also marks the third location in Texas, all of which are owned and operated by former Marines.

When asked about why he believes G.I.HAUL® has seen continued success throughout the United States, founder and former Marine David McCloskey stated "We're giving veterans a chance. A chance that no one else will give them. That's our mission and will always be our mission. We want to increase veteran business ownership."

And what does the future hold? Does the veteran-owned and operated junk removal company expect to see the pace of expansion slow down at some point? "Actually, from what we are seeing and from the conversations we're having, we expect it to pick up. Our conservative estimates have us in 20 additional markets in the next 6 months," David said. That's not bad for a company that started with just a truck and some trash.

Advocacy Groups to Announce Legal Action Against DOE's Plans for New Plutonium Bomb Factories at Los Alamos and SRS

The South Carolina Environmental Law Project (SCELP) is a South Carolina-based non-profit environmental law firm representing SRS Watch, Nuclear Watch New Mexico and Tri-Valley CAREs in the matter of the proposal for plutonium pit production by the DOE.

Cross section of a nuclear warhead, with plutonium “pit,” by SCELP. In the nuclear explosion the speherical pit undergoes compression by high exploses, triggering a fission reaction that sets off the weapon’s secondary.

Savannah River Site Watch opposes the proposed SRS Plutonium Bomb Plant (PBP) for environmental, national security and cost reasons.

Public interest groups near DOE nuclear weapons sites in SC, NM and CA represented by South Carolina Environmental Law Project in opposition to plutonium "pits"

DOE's failure to assess environmental impacts at numerous DOE sites and neglect of proper review of need for new pits for new nuclear weapons must be corrected by preparation of a Programmatic EIS.”

— Tom Clements, Director, Savannah River Site Watch, Columbia, South Carolina

COLUMBIA, SC, USA, June 25, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ —

WHAT: Public interest groups will hold a press conference for a major announcement of a forthcoming legal action as the U.S. Department of Energy and the National Nuclear Security Administration forge ahead with plans to drastically expand production of plutonium pits, the cores of nuclear weapons, at the Savannah River Site (SRS) in South Carolina and the Los Alamos National Lab (LANL) in New Mexico, with Lawrence Livermore National Lab (LLNL) in California engaged in pit design.

The legal action follows previous unanswered requests from the groups to DOE and NNSA as seen in correspondence in February and April.

BACKGROUND INFORMATION: https://www.scelp.org/cases/plutonium-pits

The first plutonium pits would be for the new W87-1 warhead for the controversial new ICBM called the Ground Based Strategic Deterrent (GBSD), which has been proposed by the Department of Defense to replace the silo-based Minuteman III nuclear-tipped missile. While DOE's mandate is to produce 80 pits per year by 2030, the proposed SRS Plutonium Bomb Plant (PBP), with a goal to produce 50 or more pits per year by 2030, has already slipped significantly behind schedule. Charles Verdon, acting NNSA administrator, recently revealed to Congress that the SRS pit facility could be as late as 2035, which will have serious negative impacts on the viability of the project.

In the May 28, 2021 NNSA budget request to Congress, the agency revealed that the estimated cost of the SRS Plutonium Bomb Plant had soared from $4.6 billion to $11.1 billion. (See NNSA Fiscal Year 2022 budget request to Congress, page 157.) The FY22 budget request for the PBP is $475 million, an amount far under the $1+ billion it will need in the mid-2020s if conversion of the partially finished and terminated plutonium fuel (MOX) building into a pit factory were to get under way.

The PBP project appears to be following in the steps of the SRS plutonium fuel (MOX) debacle, which fell far behind schedule and faced massive cost escalations, resulting in $8 billion wasted before the project was officially scrapped in 2018. For parochial political reasons, to fill the funding hole caused by termination of the MOX project, DOE presented the rushed proposal to expand pit production to SRS. The site has no experience with pit production, which will present a daunting technical challenge to the project and result in more cost increases and schedule delays.

The Los Alamos National Lab has struggled in handling plutonium and failed to produce the 20 pits per year assigned to the site after the closure of the contaminated Rocky Flats pit-production site in Colorado, raided by the FBI in 1989 and formally closed in 1992. Cost overruns and schedule delays are also expected at LANL and reaching a production level of 30 pits per year by 2026 is doubtful.

Speakers at the news conference will review the legal and environmental challenges facing expanded pit production, including impacts at various DOE sites and lack of proper Environmental Justice consideration. Additionally, the need for new pits for new nuclear warheads will be questioned at this time when new nuclear arms reductions must be pursued.

LRS ENTERS VIBRANT MINNEAPOLIS–SAINT PAUL MARKET WITH ACQUISITION OF LEADING C&D RECYCLER, ATOMIC RECYCLING

LRS ENTERS MINNESOTA WITH ACQUISITION OF LEADING C&D RECYCLER, ATOMIC RECYCLING

LRS NOW PROVIDES DIVERSIFIED WASTE, RECYCLING AND PORTABLE SERVICES ACROSS SIX MIDWEST STATES WITH THE ACQUISITION OF MINNEAPOLIS-BASED ATOMIC RECYCLING

Transformative acquisition establishes firm foothold for LRS growth and expansion in Minnesota, and is the company’s ninth strategic acquisition to-date in 2021

MORTON GROVE, ILLINOIS, UNITED STATES, June 24, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — (LRS), the Midwest’s leading independent waste, recycling and portable services provider, today announced it has acquired Minneapolis-based Atomic Recycling, the largest provider of Construction and Demolition (C&D) recycling and roll-off container services in the Twin Cities; financial terms were not disclosed and the acquisition is effective immediately.

Now operating across six Midwest states: Illinois, Wisconsin, Iowa, Indiana, Michigan and Minnesota, LRS continues its mission to disrupt the waste industry status quo, delivering unmatched waste, recycling and portable services to well over a million residential, commercial and municipal customers.

LRS Chief Executive Officer, Alan T. Handley, heralded the acquisition as a core strategic fit as the company continues to attract independent, family-owned providers across the Midwest. Atomic Recycling founders, Kyle Lewis, Chief Operating Officer, and his brother Reed Smith, Chief Executive Officer, will continue with LRS in key operating roles as well as significant shareholders.

“We extend a warm LRS welcome to Kyle, Reed, the nearly one hundred hard working Atomic employees and thousands of customers who helped build Atomic Recycling into one of the Twin Cities’ most respected and dominant C&D recycling companies,” Handley said. “It’s a great day as we plant a new flag in a strategic cornerstone market for LRS. We look forward to rapidly expanding our presence throughout Minnesota, and view Atomic and its outstanding team and culture, as the optimal platform from which to drive that effort.”

Founded in 1999, Atomic Recycling has emerged as the Twin Cities’ leading provider of roll-off container, C&D recycling, and construction management services. Atomic dominates the recycling market in the Twin Cities, controlling and processing 65 percent, or nearly 250,000 tons of available C&D material at its state-of-the-art recycling facility. The acquisition adds nearly 100 employees, 50 trucks and 2,000 roll-off containers to LRS’ newly formed Minnesota platform.

“Since our inception, Atomic Recycling has brought a sustainability focus aimed directly at recycling more construction waste material for Minneapolis–Saint Paul-based construction and remodeling companies. This unique and focused approach has resulted in the diversion of a tremendous amount of construction waste away from Minnesota landfills,” said Atomic Recycling CEO Reed Lewis. “We are excited to enter into this transformative agreement with LRS, a national leader in the waste and recycling industry. LRS shares in our commitment to providing an exceptional customer experience, fostering local and regional competition, operating with honest Midwest values and sharing in our commitment to deliver sustainability-focused waste, recycling and portable services.”

Green Energy Biofuel Featured on NPR’s South Carolina Business Review

BioJoe Renwick

railcars, grease

Green Energy Biofuel has railcar service into and out of its waste processing facility near Aiken, South Carolina.

compost, organic waste, landfill-free, zero landfill, recycling

Through ReSoil, Green Energy Biofuel’s recently acquired composting facility, the company can offer landfill-free disposal options for industrial-scale processors.

BioJoe Renwick shares with listeners how his growing recycling enterprise, Green Energy Biofuel, has become more diversified and adaptive through the pandemic.

WINNSBORO, SOUTH CAROLINA, UNITED STATES, June 23, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — BioJoe Renwick, co-founder and owner of recycling firm Green Energy Biofuel, was recently featured on National Public Radio’s South Carolina Business Review podcast with host Mike Switzer.

The popular segment on South Carolina Public Radio gave Renwick an opportunity to update listeners on Green Energy Biofuel’s expansion over the past several years from a small, local grease collection and biodiesel production company in the Midlands to a much larger, regional recycling business capable of processing far more than just used cooking oil.

With three grease processing facilities—two in South Carolina (Winnsboro and Aiken) and one in Tennessee (Knoxville)—Green Energy Biofuel is now capable of refining industrial-scale volumes of any waste that contains grease, including the lowest quality, hardest-to-process material. The Aiken processing center has its own rail spur and can accommodate railcar loads of waste, in addition to tanker trucks. The company is also permitted for treatment of wastewater from large food processors such as Tyson Foods, for example.

Renwick also shared with Switzer how the coronavirus pandemic has affected Green Energy Biofuel’s business. With most restaurants having to shut down or endure significantly reduced patron throughput, used cooking oil generation dropped precipitously starting in March 2020 through the first quarter of 2021. Green Energy Biofuel lost a quarter of its collection accounts as a result. But this hasn’t slowed Renwick or the Green Energy Biofuel team down. In fact, during the throws of the pandemic, the company made a strategic move to expand into processing a different type of waste—solid, organic material.

In December 2020, Green Energy Biofuel acquired ReSoil in Elgin, South Carolina, helping the company—and its clients—become zero-landfill stewards of the environment. Since then, significant investment has been put into the site, helping it run more efficiently in order to move more solid, organic waste in and more compost out.

Although Green Energy Biofuel’s ReSoil facility sells tons of high-quality compost in bulk, Renwick told Switzer his new venture will soon focus on bagging the nutrient-rich material for sale in local markets.

The company has also added numerous industrial services now offered to its clients, including line-jetting, tank cleaning and hood servicing. To learn more about the ReSoil composting facility or Green Energy Biofuel’s industrial services, click here.

STP and STC announce the release of its newly developed EHS audit protocol for South Africa

Latest EHS Regulations Updates Assist Companies to Achieve EHS Compliance

VANCOUVER, BC, CANADA, June 21, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — STP ComplianceEHS (STP) and Specialty Technical Consultants (STC) announce the release of its newly developed environmental health and safety (EHS) audit protocol for South Africa. This audit protocol covers relevant national EHS requirements. The regulatory date for the current release is February 2021.

Leading companies around the world use EHS audit protocols to understand the scope of their EHS regulatory obligations and rapidly collect, share, archive, and export audit findings in a cost-effective manner. EHS audit protocols are prepared by STC in partnership with STP and continue to focus on those national (plus, in some cases, regional or provincial) EHS requirements that have site-specific application for manufacturing operations. As a leading EHS management consulting firm with a global network of experienced EHS teaming partners, STC has in-depth knowledge and technical expertise of local/regional EHS requirements.

STP and STC maintain leading-edge EHS audit protocols for more than 50 jurisdictions. The protocol documents are written in English and are available in MS Word, Adobe Acrobat and Excel formats, as well as through STP’s web-based portal or can be integrated into an existing company platform. Using the protocols’ custom templates and advanced functionality features, auditors can easily track audit findings and manage data over time to improve compliance, risk management and safety performance. In addition, STP’s formatting is compatible with leading risk management and sustainability platform providers.

Highlights of selected legislation covered in the newly developed protocol include:
