Plastic recycling: what’s happening in the UK The Telegraph Search Icon Save

Until now the UK has struggled to recycle plastic waste but that could soon change. In 2014, Britain produced 4.9 million tonnes of plastic waste. Two-thirds of it (67pc) was packaging and only 1.2 million tonnes (24pc) of that waste was recycled, according to a report last year by the World Wildlife Fund. The WWF estimates that since then the situation has improved only slightly, with the nation perhaps recycling a little under a third of its waste. However, things should improve over the next four years, says Dr Adam Read, director of external affairs at Suez Recycling & Recovery UK, a waste management company in Maidenhead, Berkshire. “You’ve got heightened public awareness like we’ve never seen before.” The appetite for recycling among UK citizens is not likely to be the problem, it’s the fact that people are often confused about what they can recycle and how they can do it, which is not surprising. Local Authority collections vary widely and identifying plastic types, and what can and cannot go into your recycling box, often feels like it demands a degree in chemistry. The sheer variety of plastics in our daily lives further complicates matters. Clear water bottles are...

Panel de la FIFA acuerda limitar ingresos de los agentes

Su privacidad es importante para nosotros. Hemos actualizado nuestra política de privacidad para explicarle mejor cómo utilizamos los datos en este sitio. Léalo aquí ZÚRICH (AP) — Un panel de la FIFA acordó fijar límites a los honorarios que pueden cobrar los agentes en el mercado anual de traspasos _ que mueve unos 7.000 millones de dólares _ y restringir el número de cesiones de jugadores que puede hacer un club. En busca de imponer algo de orden en el mercado global de traspasos, la FIFA informó el miércoles que su comité de socios de la industria del fútbol recomendó principios claves. El panel, que incluye delegados de la FIFA, clubs, ligas y gremios de jugadores, acordó que los agentes deberán ganar un máximo de 10% de las comisiones de los traspasos cuando trabajan para el club que vende. Juventus, según informes de prensa, entregó casi el 26% _ 27 millones de euros (29,6 millones de dólares) _ al agente Mino Raiola por los 105 millones de euros (115 millones de dólares) que el Manchester United pagó por el centrocampista francés Paul Pogba en 2016. Además, Raiola recibió millones de parte de Pogba y el United. “Todas las comisiones de los agentes deberán ser pagada...

III. The Effects of Shields and Baffles on the Distribution of Functional Chromium Electrodeposits | Products Finishing

This is the third of three combined papers that received the AESF Gold Medal Award for Best Paper published in Plating & Surface Finishing in 1989.  Insulating shields and baffles redirect the flow of current and affect the thickness distribution of chromium and other electrodeposits. Many examples of these useful devices for improving the uniformity of chromium deposits are described. Editor’s Note: Originally published as E.C. Knill, Plating & Surface Finishing, 76 (3), 38-45 (1989), this is the third of three papers, all by Mr. Knill, which received the Gold Medal Award for Best Paper published in Plating & Surface Finishing in 1989, which was presented at SUR/FIN 1990 in Boston, Massachusetts.  A printable PDF version is available by clicking HERE.

In recent years, there is a clear industry trend blurring the lines between an automated system

In recent years, there is a clear industry trend blurring the lines between an automated system and a tool. The resulting mechatronic advanced manufacturing systems drive down the costs and risks of aerostructure manufacturing and assembly. In the world of aerospace, tooling has a range of meanings, from a drill bit to a layup mold. For purposes of this discussion, tooling predominantly refers to assembly jigs that are used to ensure the precise assembly of aerostructures. An automated system refers predominantly to drilling, countersinking, fastening, and sealant applications, as well as the holding fixtures that enable automation. In years past, suppliers were distinct. Tooling suppliers provided assembly jigs that ensured repeatability and accuracy, but offered no intelligence or automation. Automation providers supplied one machine designed to do one job. A multi-disciplinary field of engineering that includes elements from traditional engineering disciplines including mechanical, electrical, systems, and controls. For example, a customized wing fastening cell was engineered for each program, and when the program was complete, the machine was obsolete. Only high-rate, long-...

This Young Artist’s One-of-a-Kind Pearl Necklaces Are as Fantastical as Her Personal Style

For the past month, the Lower East Side gallery Larrie has been playing host to the fashion pop-up Café Forgot, a treasure trove of playful, one-of-a-kind pieces. There are New York–based designer Martina Cox’s cheeky window pants, sculpture-like cage skirts by Los Angeles artist Runny Babbit, and, perhaps most eye-catching of all, jewelry by the New Jersey-based artist Isabella Lalonde, produced under the name Beepy Bella. Lalonde mostly makes pearl necklaces (there are also some tourmaline stones, handcrafted into silver mushroom charms, on her web store), but they’re very far removed from the ones you might have seen on your grandmother’s bureau growing up. Just take the personified descriptions that she writes for them on her website: Venom II, a necklace that threads together forest green and lilac pearls and is finished off with a cross-like glass pendant in the center, “grew up in a forest, was raised by deers, and loves the smell of lavender.” Lalonde, who is 23, grew up between Switzerland, Paris, and New Jersey—her dad works in the fashion industry, and the family moved around a lot as he worked for different brands—and she went on to study fine arts at Parsons School ...
