    Beginning more than 1.5 million years ago, early humans made stone handaxes in a style known as the Acheulean – the longest lasting tool-making tradition in prehistory. New research led by the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Human History and the Saudi Commission for Tourism and National Heritage has documented an Acheulean presence in the Arabian Peninsula dating to less than 190,000 years ago, revealing that the Arabian Acheulean ended just before or at the same time as the earliest Homo sapiens dispersals into the region.

    Much attention has been given to understanding the spread of our own species, Homo sapiens, first within Africa and then beyond. However, less attention has been given to where diverse groups of close evolutionary cousins lived in Eurasia immediately prior to the arrival of Homo sapiens. Understanding this is critical because the spatial and temporal characteristics of such groups reveal the human and cultural landscape first encountered by our species on leaving Africa.

    *The youngest Acheulean site in Southwest Asia*

    In a paper published in Scientific Reports, an international team of researchers led by the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Human History and the Saudi Commission for Tourism and National Heritage reports the first ever dates obtained from an Acheulean site in Arabia, the site of Saffaqah, situated in Central Saudi Arabia. Saffaqah is the first stratified Acheulean site to be reported in the Arabian Peninsula and the dates reveal that early humans occupied the site until at least 190,000 years ago. These dates are surprisingly recent for a region known to feature among the oldest examples of such technology outside Africa. For example, dates from the Levant document an ancient Acheulean presence from 1.5 million years ago. Conversely the site of Saffaqah features the youngest Acheulean tools yet found in southwest Asia.

    Over 500 stone tools, including handaxes and other artefacts known as cleavers, were recovered from the occupation levels. Some of the stone flakes used to make handaxes were in such fresh condition that they were recovered still resting on the stone nodules from which they had been detached. These and other artefacts show that the early humans responsible for making them were manufacturing stone tools at this site.

    “It is not surprising that early humans came here to make stone tools,” says Dr. Eleanor Scerri of the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Human History, the lead author of the study. “The site is located on a prominent andesite dyke that rises above the surrounding plain. The spot was both a source of raw material as well as a prime location to survey a landscape that, back then, sat between two major river systems.” This choice location also seems to have continued to be attractive to early humans at an even later date than those recorded by the researchers in this study. Layers containing identical stone handaxes are also found above the dense occupation layers that were dated, raising the possibility that Saffaqah is among the youngest Acheulean sites documented anywhere.

    *Hominins living at the edge*

    The new dating results both record the late persistence of the Acheulean in the Peninsula and also show that as yet unidentified hominin populations were using networks of now extinct rivers to disperse into the heart of Arabia during a time of increased rainfall in the region. This suggests that these hominins were able to live on the margins of habitable zones and take advantage of relatively brief “greening” episodes in a generally arid area. The dispersal of these hominins into the heart of Arabia may also help to explain the surprisingly late persistence of the Acheulean, as it suggests a degree of isolation.

    “These hominins were resourceful and intelligent,” adds Dr. Scerri, “They dispersed across a challenging landscape using technology commonly seen as reflecting a lack of inventiveness and creativity. Instead of perceiving the Acheulean this way, we should really be struck by how flexible, versatile and successful this technology was.”

    *Cutting edge science*

    To date the sediments from the site of Saffaqah, the researchers used a combination of dating techniques known as luminescence methods, including a newly developed infrared-radiofluorescence (IR-RF) dating protocol for potassium rich feldspars. The method relies on the ability of such minerals to store energy induced by natural radioactivity and to release this energy in the form of light. “The application of IR-RF dating allowed us to obtain age estimates from sediments that were previously difficult to reliably date,” explains Marine Frouin of the University of Oxford, one of the researchers involved in the dating program.

    These discoveries and methods are already leading to new research. “One of the biggest questions we have is whether any of our evolutionary ancestors and close cousins met up with Homo sapiens, and if this could have happened somewhere in Saudi Arabia. Future field work will be dedicated to understanding possible cultural and biological exchanges at this critical time period,” says Professor Michael Petraglia of the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Human History, the director of the project which led to the discoveries at Saffaqah.

    NEW YORK, Dec. 05, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The demand for *Europe small scale LNG market* is projected to grow from *1,902.60 million Euros* in 2020 to *5,818.75 million Euros* by 2030, while actuating at an estimated *CAGR of 11.8%* from 2020 to 2030. Europe is likely to experience faster growth as compared to other regions in the global market owing to the mandate set by European Union on sulphur emmsions. For instance, the sulphur emmsions cap for marine fuel is set as 0.5% by the year 2020. Favorable prices of LNG along with growing demand from key sectors such as transportation and power generation, is projected to augment market demand over the forecast period. Also, various government regulations in light of environmental benefits of LNG have fostered the market growth in the region.Small scale LNG includes the direct use of LNG in its liquid form. Conventional modes of regasification and subsequent introduction of LNG into the gas transmission grid for lesser production capacities have now become a part of small scale LNG. These small-scale liquefaction plants posses a production capacity of less than 500,000 tonnes per year (tpy), and vessels with a LNG storage capacity less than 30,000 cubic meters. Small-scale LNG plants are re-deployable and primarily designed for small gas field. Small scale LNG meets the growing demand from the shipping and trucking industries for fuels that are environment friendly as compared to oil and diesel.

    *Key findings from the report:*

    · The Europe small scale LNG market is expected to reach 5818.7 million Euros by 2030 at a CAGR of 11.8%· Based on application:
    · The road transport fuel segment is likely to be the largest segment of the Europe small scale LNG market in 2020 · The marine fuel segment is expected to emerge as the fastest growing segment, over the forecast period
    · Based on off grid power generation:
    · Off-grid industrial segment is projected to hold the largest share of the Europe small scale LNG market in 2020
    · Based on supply mode:
    · Ship-to-ship segment is likely to dominate the market in 2020 and the trend is likely to continue over the forecast period.
    · Some of the key companies operating in the market include Engie; Fluxys S.A.; Gazprom; Linde Gas; Skangas; Gasrec; Gasnor; Wärtsilä Corporation; General Electric; and LNG Gorskaya LLC, among others

    *Marine fuel segment : Expected to experience the fastest growth during 2020-2030*

    The marine fuel segment is likely to propel at the fastest CAGR of 12.48% over the forecast period. A rise in bunkering operations has been observed for small-scale ships, which suggests that the marine use of LNG is also becoming popular. Moreover, the regional fleet of LNG fueled ships in operations are increasing, such as supply & service vessels, and passenger ships among others. LNG offers superior performance, while meeting the environmental requirements as compared to other fuels. Considering these factors, the demand for LNG as a maritime fuel across the region is expected to grow significantly.

    *Road transport fuel segment : likely to dominate the market by 2030*

    The road transport fuel segment is likely to dominate the market in 2020 with a value of 888.67 million Euros owing to the increasing use of LNG as a cleaner road transport fuel in the region. Additionally, the volumes in truck loading have gone up by 8% as compared to last year, along with an increase in the number of LNG stations across Europe.

    *Off-grid power generation segment*

    Small-scale LNG has emerged as an effective and reliable solution for off-grid power generation and supply. On account of its flexibility, small scale LNG has fuelled demand in areas which were previously unsuited to LNG as a fuel source, such as off-grid power generation in remote areas or islands. These include the use of small scale LNG in households as well as for industrial purposes. A key driver for demand in off-grid power generation application is the development of an efficient and sustainable logistics network so that end users in remote locations can be reached.  In addition, the investment required to switch towards LNG power is relatively lower than for other applications such as trucking and bunkering and no major infrastructure is required.

    *Small-Scale LNG Infrastructure *

    The LNG refueling stations are now appearing on the EU major trunk lines. The key suppliers of small scale LNG in Europe include Skangas in Sweden; Gaz Natural Fenosa and Enagas in Spain; Gazprom in Russia; ENGIE in France; and Liquigas in Italy. Most of the European LNG import terminals already offer truck loading and the availability of loading bunkering ships is increasing as well. Regasification terminals in the region have adapted their services to market conditions, while offering flexibility as well as developing small scale LNG infrastructure. These small-scale LNG infrastructure and services contribute towards increasing regional security of supply along with reducing EU emissions.

    *Europe – Regional Insight*

    Europe has witnessed significant development in small-scale infrastructure in recent years. Countries such as France, Spain, and United Kingdom have multiple small-scale LNG import terminals supplying LNG to industries, off-grid power generation units, and truck refueling stations via truck reloading operations. These terminals also supply LNG to the bunkering terminals for the purpose of providing LNG as a marine fuel for LNG fueled ships. Major European countries plan to set up a bunkering network by the year 2020 for maritime operations. By the year 2025, these countries plan to have a bunkering network to serve inland waterways vessels as well. Germany, France, Spain, and United Kingdom among other countries are developing the “Blue Corridor” network which aims to establish LNG as an alternative fuel for medium and long-distance transport. This initiative is expected to propel the demand for LNG as  a transport fuel segment over the next few years. Additionally, countries with islands are expected to adopt LNG as a fuel for off-grid power generation.

    The report segments European small-scale LNG market on the basis of application, infrastructure, and region.

    Putting protections in place now is essential as the climate changes, but must be complemented by massive GHG reductions: WWF-Canada

    IQALUIT, Dec. 05, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- World Wildlife Fund Canada welcomes the announcement of an agreement in principal between the government of Canada and the Qikiqtani Inuit Association to explore options to protect the High Arctic Basin, or Tuvaijuittuq, which means “the ice never melts” in Inuktitut. This builds on the previous announcement of Tallurutiup Imanga national marine conservation area – formerly Lancaster Sound – to significantly expand habitat protections for polar bears, narwhal and other Arctic wildlife.

      

    Both Tuvaijuittuq and Tallurutiup Imanga are located within the Last Ice Area, that area where summer sea ice will persist the longest in the face of climate change, providing refuge for ice-dependent species. *  *

     

    *Paul Crowley, vice president of Arctic Conservation for WWF-Canada, says:*

    “WWF has been concerned about conservation in the Last Ice Area for years, since it will be the last refuge for ice-dependent species in the Arctic as the climate changes. Conservation measures for both Tallurutiup Imanga and the High Arctic Basin, and the corresponding investment in the conservation economy, will make this area more resilient for communities and wildlife as the world warms. Working on these resilience pieces now is essential, but we can’t focus on this alone. We still need an immediate, massive effort to drive down greenhouse gas emissions in the next 12 years.”

    The National Medal of Honor Museum Foundation today announced the addition of three new members to its Board of Directors, who will play a leadership role in the creation of a permanent home to honor America's bravest heroes.

    The new board members are: Britt Slabinski Master Chief Petty Officer (SEAL), USN (Ret.) and Medal of Honor recipient; Francisco D’Souza, CEO / Vice Chair of the Board of Directors of Cognizant; and Jared Weinstein, General Partner, Thrive Capital. They join seven current members of the board as well as former U.S. Presidents Barack Obama, George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, and Jimmy Carter, who serve as Honorary Directors. The new appointments are effective immediately.

    “As we look for a permanent home for the Museum we welcome these three new Directors who share our desire to honor and commemorate the best and bravest who have served our country,” said Peter Stent, Chairman of the National Medal of Honor Museum. “The traits and values these three men display in their professional and personal lives are exemplary of those that are inherent in the character development program that will become a core part of the museum experience.

    NEW YORK, Dec. 06, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The demand for *Baltic countries small-scale LNG market* is projected to *reach 1.908 MTPA* by 2030, actuating at an estimated *CAGR of 14.01%* from 2020 to 2030. Increasing investment in LNG infrastructure in the Baltic region, and the support from local governments for the adoption of LNG as a marine and road transport fuel is expected to give impetus to the market growth during the forecast period. Moreover, the sulphur emission cap set by the European Union on road transport fuel and marine fuel is expected to propel the market in the coming years.Gazprom, a Russian company, had a monopoly on the natural gas exports to the Baltic region in the past. This led to higher import costs of natural gas in these countries. To reduce the dependency on Russian imports and to develop a negotiating platform for prices, small-scale infrastructure is being developed across the region. The infrastructure includes building of LNG import terminals, bunkering terminals, LNG truck fueling stations, and an efficient distribution network for truck reloading operations. FSRU Independence in Lithuania currently serves as a hub for LNG import in the north-eastern Baltic countries. However, with recent developments in Estonia, relocation of LNG import traffic is expected in the coming years.

    *Key findings from the report:*

    · The Baltic small-scale LNG market is expected to reach 1.908 MTPA by 2030 at a CAGR of 14.01%
    · Based on application:
       •   The road transport fuel segment is expected to reach around 0.6 MTPA by the year 2030
    · Based on off grid power generation:
       •   Off-grid power generation segment is projected to experience steady growth during the forecast period. This can be attributed to demand for green fuels for generation of power
    · Based on supply mode:
       •   Ship-to-ship segment is likely to dominate the market in 2020 and the trend is likely to continue over the forecast period. This can be owed to planned marine LNG bunkering projects across the Baltic Sea
    · Some of the key companies operating in the market include LNG Gorskaya LLC; Alexela; Gazprom; Litgas; Vopak E.O.S; Eesti Gaas; Polskie LNG S.A.; Statoil AGA; Skangas; and DUON, among others

    *Marine fuel segment: A new market stemming from small-scale LNG imports during 2020-2030*

    Baltic countries are developing LNG bunkering infrastructure across the Baltic Sea to cater for the LNG marine fuel market currently in nascent stage. Companies like Gorskaya have planned floating storage units with a small bunkering vessel at several locations. These facilities can be expanded with storage and truck loading bays adding to the countries LNG distribution network. In the most basic supply chain operations, LNG import terminals supply LNG to bunkering terminals via truck reloading operations or a small carrier vessel. A bunkering terminal planned in the port of Montu will act as a strategic point to perform marine bunkering operations in the Baltic Sea. These developments are expected to create a positive impact on the marine fuel bunker market.

    *Road transport fuel segment: A fast developing network for LNG fueled vehicles*

    The conventional fuels for road transport have high carbon and sulphur emissions. This has led to adoption of greener fuels for vehicles. CNG fueling stations have experienced success in Baltic markets and are growing at a steady rate. This reflects the optimistic adoption of LNG as a fuel for long-haul trucks. Additionally, LNG fueling services can be integrated with CNG facilities enabling easy installation in an efficient manner.

    *Estonia – Regional Insight*

    Estonia is poised to witness significant growth in small-scale LNG infrastructure, and is likely to be a small-scale LNG hub in the north-eastern Baltic Sea. Estonia is developing several regasification facilities, constructing a natural gas pipeline with Finland, and bunkering facilities to cater for the upcoming marine bunkering market. For instance, the Paldiski regasification terminal will also serve as a LNG storage facility for truck reloading, truck-to-ship & marine bunkering. Moreover, LNG Gorskaya, a Russian company, is planning to construct a bunkering facility in the port of Parnu before the year 2020. This facility consists of a floating storage unit of 5500 cubic meter capacity, and a small-scale bunkering vessel of capacity 1300 cubic meter. Similar facility is planned at the port of Montu and other countries in Europe. These facilities are expected to target the bunkering market in Baltic Sea. Gorskaya is planning to operate from a LNG liquefaction plant located near St. Petersburg, and will be fed natural gas from a pipeline of Gazprom.
