    UK Wants To Double The Charge For Disposable Plastic Bags Watch VideoThe U.K. is strengthening its push to reduce plastic waste.

    The country announced Wednesday it wants to double the amount customers are charged for disposable plastic bags. 

    Since 2015, customers shopping at big businesses have been charged 5 pence per plastic bag if they opted to use one. Under the new plan, customers would be charged 10 pence, or about 13 cents, per bag. The plan would also extend the bag charge to all retailers.

    U.K. Environment Secretary Michael Gove said the charge has been a big success so far, adding it has taken "over 15 billion plastic bags out of circulation." The fee also goes toward local, national and environmental charities. In 2017, the fee contributed over $64 million in donations.

    The U.K. said it's asking consumers what they think of the idea first and has opened a consultation for feedback.

    The plan is part of the U.K.'s 25 Year Environment Plan. It covers improvement goals for air, water and wildlife — including goals to eliminate avoidable plastic waste by the end of 2042 and reduce marine plastic pollution. Reported by Newsy 5 hours ago.

    KEMP, Texas, Dec. 27, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Larson Electronics, a Texas-based company with over 40 years of experience spearheading the industrial lighting sector, announced the release of a 100-watt vapor proof industrial LED string light that is certified to prevent water or moisture from entering the handle or head when used in wet locations. This unit features 10, 10-watt high output LED lights that can be constructed in a daisy chain configuration for longer area illumination.The VPLSL-10-25-LED-E2E vapor proof LED string light features 10 industrial grade vapor proof LED lamps with 10 feet of 12/3 SOOW cable between each of the fixtures. This unit can be connected to the power source via an integrated 100-foot 14/3 cable terminated with general area cord caps. Each LED light hangs from a three-foot 16/3 SOOW drop cord connected to an in-line vapor proof junction box. Each string light can be connected end-to-end to illuminate longer work areas.

    Each light is water tight and has a stainless-steel mesh guard enclosure, providing protection for the glass dome.

    TORONTO, Dec. 28, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- *dynaCERT  *Inc.   (TSX   VENTURE: DYA) (OTCQB: DYFSF) (FRA: DMJ) ("dynaCERT" or the "Company") is pleased to provide some updates to previously issued press releases in order to publicly clarify information requested by shareholders from time to time.Corporate Updates         

    In the corporate press release dated February 6, 2017, the Company announced receipt of orders for 276 HydraGEN™ units. The initial shipment of these units was delivered by the end of March to the client.  These initial units had the company’s ECU1 controller. During the following months it was determined that the ECU1 design was faulty and these units required replacement. In the corporate press release dated March 28, 2017, the Company announced new purchase orders for 430 HydraGEN™ units.  Due to the faulty ECU1 noted above, the status of unit sales were under negotiations up until recently. The financial statements of the Company dated December 21, 2017 were restated to reflect the state of those ongoing negotiations between the Company and such clients.

    The Company now expects that any resolution would have to include the new improved HG145 models introduced in 2018 as well as the SMART ECU2 (please see Press Release dated December 19, 2018).  The Company is awaiting delivery instructions from certain clients with unfulfilled orders pursuant to the February 6, 2017 press release.  The Company considers 400 units of those orders announced in the March 28, 2017 press release to be cancelled and continues to negotiate with such clients.

    In the corporate press release dated May 11, 2017, the Company announced a collaboration with Northwest Territory Power Corp (NTPC) in a fuel and emission savings pilot project. As reported in the corporate press release dated March 2, 2018, discussions were held to advance the trial using the upgraded HG1 units. However, that project did not meet the projected savings due to the ECU1 units that were included in the original units shipped. NTPC elected not to continue piloting the HydraGEN™ Technology at this time and agreed to review the HydraGEN™ Technology at a later date when there are more HydraGEN™ units operating in the field achieving the expected pilot plant fuel and emission saving.

    In the corporate press release dated June 8, 2017, the Company announced that Mr. Michael Christodoulou has joined the Company’s Advisory Board.  The position carries no cash compensation nor any financial commitments by the Company.  Members of the Advisory Board provide industry experience on all aspect of the Company’s business including sales strategies and market contacts, technical advice, and commercialization guidance.

    In the corporate press release dated July 28, 2017, the Company announced that Mr. Marc Bertrand has joined the Company’s Advisory Board.  The position carries no annual compensation The position carries no cash compensation nor any financial commitments by the Company.  Members of the Advisory Board provide industry experience on all aspect of the Company’s business including sales strategies and market contacts, technical advice, and commercialization guidance.

    In the corporate press release dated August 3, 2017, the Company announced that Mr. Shmuel Farhi has joined the Company’s Advisory Board.  The position carries no cash compensation nor any financial commitments by the Company.  Members of the Advisory Board provide industry experience on all aspect of the Company’s business including sales strategies and market contacts, technical advice, and commercialization guidance.

    The MD&A of the Company’s financial quarter ending June 30, 2017 reported that the Company has retained legal counsel and put the initial supplier of the ECU1 on notice to recover liabilities associated with loss due to the defective ECU1. There were significant challenges in the second quarter of 2017 related to the electrical components (ECU1) which the Company tackled to rectify without success.  This led to the development of the SMART ECU2 controller.  The Company also provided an update on the lawsuit in the September 30, 2017 Management’s Discussion and Analysis filed on SEDAR. Counsel for the Company and the Defendant are currently in discussions to prepare for Discoveries which is the next step in the proceedings.

    In the corporate press release dated November 2, 2017, the Company announced a conference with the All India Motor Transport Congress that was held in Toronto, Ontario. As reported in the corporate press release dated December 4, 2017, there was keen interest in the emission reductions offered by the HydraGEN™ Technology.  Although the group represented fleets of nearly 10 million trucks and buses there was no commitment for HydraGEN™ units obtained during the conference.  It was, however, agreed that a visit by dynaCERT management would facilitate orders in the near future.

    In the corporate press release dated December 21, 2017, the Company announced that it had received an order for 520 HydraGEN™ HG1 units from dynaCERT’s dealer Hoer&Hoer GreenTech (now named H2GreenTech).  The initial units shipped to Germany for use on diesel-powered generators were actually powered by palm oil, a form of bio-diesel, which the company had not tested before. While the carbon emissions recorded shows significant reductions with the HydraGEN™ units, the testing did not successfully achieve the expected performance in fuel savings.  Upon receipt of the successful TUV test results in Germany, the dealer has continued seeking new opportunities in Europe. One such opportunity is a trial with Atlas Copco (see www.atlascopcogroup.com/en) on a large-scale mobile diesel-powered compressor station.

    In the corporate press release dated April 10, 2018, the Company announced that Mr. Maheboob Rahemtulla Nagii has joined the Company’s Advisory Board.  The position carries no cash compensation nor any financial commitments by the Company. Members of the Advisory Board provide industry experience on all aspect of the Company’s business including sales strategies and market contacts, technical advice, and commercialization guidance.

    In the corporate press release dated April 20, 2018, the Company announced that it is pursuing the Marine Classification Society Type Approval for the HydraGEN™ Technology.  Phase 1 of this effort was completed in the fall of 2018.  Phase 2 testing on a marine diesel engine with a HG1-45M Marine model is awaiting availability of the test engine facility in Nova Scotia.

    In the corporate press release dated May 11, 2018, the Company announced that its dealer in Dubai ordered six HG145 units. Please see Mobile Crane report on the Company’s web site for details of an example of the trials underway in the region.  In the corporate press release dated June 7, 2018, the Company announced that a new order from Dubai was received for a specialized HydraGEN™ unit.  This unit is now in operation in the center of a diesel power generation cell connected to one of the many 1.2MW generators in the cell. DynaCERT engineers are supporting this initiative with periodic site visits and in-situ upgrades due to the remoteness of the site with very limited communication capabilities.  The generator trial is expected to be completed in Q2-2019.

    In the corporate press release dated June 7, 2018, the Company announced that it has received delivery of the specialized Laser Welding Equipment for the manufacturing of the HG2 unit having a value of approximately C$300,000.  The Laser welder is used to completely seal the HG2 reactor and its integrated tanks in order to prevent any leakage of fluid thereby making the reactor more robust and less expensive than the HG1 reactor. Subsequent to delivery it was determined that the HG2 model reactor, as initially designed by dynaCERT engineers, could not perform long term in all climatic conditions.  A redesign of the HG2 unit is underway with a new prototype being completed and in testing phase to confirm its reliability prior to commercial launch. The Company now estimates that commercial deliveries will begin within Q2-2019. It is still planned that the new welding equipment will be utilized in the new design.

    In the corporate press release dated June 21, 2018, the Company announced that it received new orders for the inter-city bus market in India.  Shipments have been made to fulfill this order but installations were delayed by the client due to the annual rainy season floods that occurred in Mumbai and its surrounding region where the customer base is located. Subsequently, the client has elected to develop the fishing vessel market on the east and west coast of India where there are tens of thousands of vessels operating.  Initial testing is showing up to 20-25% fuel savings.

    In the corporate press release dated August 16, 2018, the Company provided an update on the European Homologation. While all independent testing, documentation and forms have been successfully completed, and these have been submitted to the government for review and approval, dynaCERT has not yet received the official notice of approval (ABE) from the Kraftfahrtbundesamt (KBA) that would provide the General Operating Permit to dynaCERT GmbH which stipulates the terms of the license authorization to sell units onto transport vehicles in Europe. The Company has received the ABE from the KBA for the SMART ECU2 which is used in all of the HydraGEN™ HG1 units.

    In the corporate press release dated September 24, 2018, the Company announced that it had opened the European market for HydraGEN™ Technology at the 2018 IAA Transportation Trade Show in Hannover Germany. There were many different discussions with transport Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM), some of the OEM dealers in the region, other related equipment suppliers and non-transportation OEMs.  These discussions have in part succeeded in further discussions and initiations of non-disclosure agreements that will allow the Company team of engineers to exchange information with others to advance sales into new markets.  Management and the sales team travelled back to Europe for two days of industrial meetings in Munich followed by two days of negotiations with the Austrian provincial Government in Carinthia.

    Trash, particularly plastic, in the ocean and along the shoreline is an economic, environmental, human health, and aesthetic problem causing serious challenges to coastal communities around the world, including the Gulf of Mexico.

    Researchers from the Dauphin Island Sea Lab and the Mission-Aransas National Estuarine Research Reserve teamed up for a two-year study to document the problem along the Gulf of Mexico shorelines. Their findings are documented in the publication, Accumulation and distribution of marine debris on barrier islands across the northern Gulf of Mexico, in ScienceDirect’s Marine Pollution Bulletin.

    From February 2015 to August of 2017, the researchers kept tabs on marine debris that washed up on the shoreline every month at 12 different sites on nine barrier islands from North Padre Island, Texas to Santa Rosa, Florida. The trash was sorted by type, frequency, and location.

    The most shocking discovery was that ten times more trash washes up on the coast of Texas than any of the other Gulf states throughout the year.

    Most of the trash, 69 to 95 percent, was plastic. The plastic items included bottles and bottle caps, straws, and broken pieces of plastic. Researchers also cited that more trash washed ashore during the spring and summer. This could be because more people are outside and on the water during this time.

    Coast Guard families should not be asked to sacrifice their financial well-being during this partial government shutdown.

    ALEXANDRIA, Va. (PRWEB) December 28, 2018

    The National Military Family Association (NMFA), a nonprofit that strengthens and protects military families, has signed on to a letter calling for continuous appropriations for Coast Guard pay during our current partial government shutdown. As it stands, 42,000 active-duty Coast Guard members are working without pay, and another 6,000 Coast Guard employees have been furloughed.

    “Our Coast Guard is at work today to protect our nation and should be protected during this shutdown,” said Joyce Raezer, Executive Director of NMFA. “Coast Guard families are military families, and they deserve better. That’s why we are joining Sea Service Family Foundation and others calling for Congress to reintroduce the Fund the Coast Guard Act.”

    The Fund the Coast Guard Act was first introduced in the 114th Congress but never moved out of the Senate Appropriations Committee. If reintroduced and passed, the legislation would provide pay and allowances to members of the Coast Guard, including reserve components who perform active service and inactive duty training. Civilian employees of the Coast Guard and allowances to Coast Guard contractors would also be paid.

    “We stand with our Coast Guard families and call on Washington to ensure the financial security promised to and earned by thousands of members of the Coast Guard currently at work for our nation,” Raezer said. “They protect us. We must protect them.”
