Symphony Environmental Technologies plc (LSE:SYM)

Whilst the BBC’s coverage did not, in our opinion, fairly present the scientifically proven benefit of oxo-biodegradable technology, we are pleased that the BBC has now focused on the solution”

— Michael Laurier, CEO

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, July 20, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — SYMPHONY ENVIRONMENTAL TECHNOLOGIES PLC

("Symphony" or the “Company”)

Response to BBC Coverage

Symphony Environmental Technologies Plc (AIM:SYM), a global specialist in technologies that “make plastics smarter”, makes the following statement on the coverage of its d2w plastic technology on the BBC news yesterday (19 July).

The Company’s Chief Executive, Michael Laurier said:

“Nearly all previous media coverage has been about the problem of plastic in the open environment, rather than the solution. Whilst the BBC’s coverage did not, in our opinion, fairly present the scientifically proven benefit of oxo-biodegradable technology, we are pleased that the BBC has now focused on the solution, and introduced our Company and our d2w technology to a much wider audience.

All plastics will fragment when exposed in the open environment, but the problem with ordinary plastics is that their fragments will lie or float around for decades before becoming biodegradable, and will persist and accumulate as a problem for future generations. During that time, they break down into microplastics and may attract and carry toxins.

Symphony’s d2w technology was invented to accelerate the degradation process and reduce the dwell-time of plastic in the environment, by adding a catalyst which promotes oxidation and converts the plastic into biodegradable materials. It is essential to understand that it does not just create fragments. d2w plastic can be recycled if collected but degradation followed by biodegradation is there to protect the environment if all else fails.

It is legitimate for the BBC reporter to question whether d2w technology actually works. To answer that question for ourselves and our customers we have commissioned scientific tests over more than 20 years so as to be quite sure that we would not be making misleading claims.

Based on this evidence a d2w plastic product will become biodegradable if exposed to oxygen on land or sea much more quickly than ordinary plastic.

These tests included successful exposure in seawater at the Bandol laboratory in France, and subsequent testing at Queen Mary University, London. We were therefore surprised when Richard Thompson of Plymouth University produced a bag which he claimed had failed to degrade. Mr. Thompson is not a polymer scientist, and we were given no opportunity before the broadcast to investigate his claim.

As previously reported by Symphony it is correct that the EU Chemicals Agency (“ECHA”) is studying “oxo-degradable” plastic at the request of the EU Commission. We welcome this, and have submitted detailed evidence to ECHA that “oxo-degradable” plastic is not the same as “oxo-biodegradable” plastic and that d2w plastic will fully biodegrade within a reasonable time and much more quickly than ordinary plastic into non-plastic biodegradable materials that will themselves naturally biodegrade in a similar way to a leaf.

The programme showed d2w plastic products being used in the Ivory Coast, where the government is concerned that plastic litter which gets into the environment should not lie or float around for decades. They, like several other governments across the world, are encouraging the use of d2w. Plastic is essential to the people of the Ivory Coast for protecting their food and water from contamination. A plastic ban could cause an epidemic and is most unlikely, therefore an alternate solution such as d2w is required.

We hope that the item on BBC news yesterday is the beginning of an open and honest debate about innovative solutions such as d2w. It is time to stop talking about the problem, and to focus on the solutions, for which d2w is one of a suite of Symphony’s technologies that we encourage governments and corporates to adopt.”

We want to ensure a person like this in Georgia or their family are dealing directly with some of the nation's most capable and experienced mesothelioma lawyers. We are convinced an electrician or skilled trades worker with mesothelioma will be amazed by the mesothelioma attorneys we recommend and the specific knowledge they possess about asbestos containing material used in construction or industrial jobsites.

"A compensation claim for an electrician or a skilled trades worker in Georgia could exceed a million dollars as we would like to discuss anytime, provided they have one of the nation’s top mesothelioma representing them. In many instances the electrician, plumber, welder, insulator, machinist, mechanic or pipefitter could have been exposed in other states. Multi state exposure to asbestos increases the financial compensation potential for a person with mesothelioma as we would like to discuss anytime at 800-714-0303." http://Georgia.MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

The Georgia Mesothelioma Victims Center offers instant access to a senior partner or the managing partner of one of the nation's premier mesothelioma law firms that consistently obtains the best possible mesothelioma financial compensation settlements for their clients nationwide. The group only offers direct access to the nation's most qualified mesothelioma lawyers, not someone's secretary or a lawyer fresh out of law school. For more information a person with mesothelioma in Georgia or their family members are urged to call the group anytime at 800-714-0303. http://Georgia.MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

For a list of building materials banned by the Environmental Protection Agency please refer to their website: https://www.epa.gov/asbestos/us-federal-bans-asbestos

The Georgia Mesothelioma Victims Center’s free services for people with mesothelioma in Georgia are available to a diagnosed victim who resides in any community in Georgia including Atlanta, Augusta, Columbus, Athens, Macon, Savannah or any community in the state.

Aside from their passion about making certain a diagnosed victim gets the best possible mesothelioma compensation, the Center is also very focused on treatment options for this rare cancer. For the best possible mesothelioma treatment options in Georgia the Georgia Mesothelioma Victims Center strongly recommends the following two heath care facilities with the offer to help a diagnosed victim, or their family get to the right physicians at one of these hospitals:

* Winship Cancer Institute of Emory University, Atlanta, Georgia: https://winshipcancer.emory.edu/
* Georgia Cancer Center, Augusta University, Augusta, Georgia http://www.augusta.edu/cancer/

High-risk work groups for exposure to asbestos in Georgia include US Navy Veterans, power plant workers, shipyard workers, oil refinery workers, pulp, and paper mill workers, cotton mill workers, manufacturing workers, plumbers, welders, electricians, auto mechanics, machinists, or construction workers. As a rule, the worker’s exposure to asbestos occurred in the 1950’s, 1960’s, 1970’s, or 1980’s.” http://Georgia.MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

According to the CDC, the states indicated with the highest incidence of mesothelioma include Maine, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio, West Virginia, Virginia, Michigan, Illinois, Minnesota, Louisiana, Washington, and Oregon. However, people are diagnosed with mesothelioma in Georgia each year-including US Navy Veterans.

AMSTERDAM, NOORD HOLAND, NEDERLAND, July 19, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Konijnenburg Wheels acquires large Slovenian wheel manufacturer and strengthens position in the European market

Konijnenburg Wheels becomes the fifth largest transport wheel manufacturer in Europe

Konijnenburg Wheels has acquired a 50% interest in the Slovenian castor factory LIV Kolesa. The plant, located 45 kilometres east of Triest, is Europe's fifth castor wheel factory.

LIV Kolesa currently employs 170 people and last year generated a turnover of €14 million, with capacity for a potential turnover of €26 million. The acquisition makes Konijnenburg Wheels the fifth largest wheel manufacturer in Europe in terms of turnover.

The acquisition will considerably strengthen the market position of Konijnenburg Wheels. Thanks to its automated presses and attractive wage cost for production in Slovenia, LIV Kolesa is considered the most competitive wheel manufacturer in Europe. As a result of the takeover, customers of Konijnenburg will have the opportunity to have large volumes of custom castors delivered within a few weeks. At the moment, the minimum delivery time for such volumes from Asia is ten weeks.

After the takeover, the management of LIV Kolesa will be in the hands of Floris van Konijnenburg, managing director of Konijnenburg Wielen, and Franc Gregorcic, founder and managing director of G4 Group. The new management wants to quickly optimise the factory and strengthen LIV Kolesa’s brand internationally.

‘LIV Kolesa needs to be transformed,' says Franc Gregorcic. ‘The company currently does not have enough profitable operations and we will help it enter new markets and develop and introduce new products. Redundancies are unlikely, says Gregorcic. ‘Our G4 Group has seven factories with a total of 950 employees. Wherever we have appeared, we have achieved growth.’

LIV Kolesa was founded in 1954 as a metal factory and woodworking company. The Slovenian company has since developed into a high-tech producer of castors, wheelbarrows, plastic injection moulded parts and sheet metal stamped components, serving customers all over the world. Unique to the Slovenian factory is the optimised internal logistic process, which enables short delivery times. LIV Kolesa is the only castor factory in Europe to have its own galvanising plant, two towering fully automatic 400-tonne transfer presses and its own slitting lines. The factory has a progressive sustainability program; part of its energy supply is supplied by 4000m2 of solar panels.

According to the latest information, LIV Kolesa's products are sold in 27 countries, with the EU being its most important market. Germany and Poland are the largest markets. In the first quarter of this year, LIV Kolesa's sales grew to €3.8 million, an increase of 18% compared to the same period last year.

Konijnenburg Wielen is acquiring LIV Kolesa together with G4 Group, a conglomerate owned by the Gregorcic family, a well-known and successful entrepreneurial family in Slovenia. The company started in 1995 when Franc Gregorcic decided to produce caravans on the site of the defunct IMV Adria caravan factory. Today, G4 Group is a major European producer of thermoforming, a technique for processing plastic sheets. In addition, the group focuses on buying and restructuring other companies.

Floris van Konijnenburg knows LIV Kolesa well. Konijnenburg Wielen has been representing the Slovenian company in the Benelux for the past 25 years. Over the decades, the two companies have jointly developed several new systems for transportation and swivel casters for the Western European market. ‘This is a logical step for us’, says Van Konijnenburg. ‘The advantage to our customers lies in custom work at a good price, with a short delivery time. With this acquisition, we can deliver European quality at a competitive price, a two-day drive from our Amsterdam head office', says Floris van Konijnenburg.

About Konijnenburg Wheels
Konijnenburg Wheels and Vlukon are part of Konindustries BV (group turnover 2017: € 13 million; 70 employees). With the acquisition of LIV Kolesa d.o.o. Konindustries is investing in a leading market position in technical wheels and industrial components for use in the automotive industry, waste processing, retail logistics, parcel delivery and horticulture.

Konijnenburg Wielen BV has been a supplier of high-quality transport wheels and mechanical components to the European manufacturing industry since 1946. The wheel manufacturer Vlukon BV, located near the southern Dutch town of Maastricht, was acquired by Konindustries in 2017.

Farmer searching for dignity: An agriculturist is shaking up!

Farm & Friends: This project has been started by Marco Bentzien together with family and kindred spirits on an area of 1,200 hectares in southern Chile.

CURACAUTIN, ARAUCANIA, CHILE, July 18, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Farmer searching for dignity: An agriculturist is shaking up!

Farm & Friends: This project has been started by Marco Bentzien together with family and kindred spirits on an area of 1,200 hectares in southern Chile. The agriculturist is cultivating healthy food in accordance with nature. Also sustainable forestry and smooth thematic tourism are part of the concept. Yet above all, the valiant farmer fights for the recovery of dignity for his professional group – companions wanted!

Counter concept to the agricultural industry and mass tourism

Because of this, the founding family has reoriented and created the project „Farm & Friends“. When cultivating, they take care of involving the beautiful nature of Fundo Laguna Blanca, and that permaculture plays a role as well. It is about innovative bio-dynamic agriculture, production of healthy food – with nature, and not against it. In addition, the “Fundo-Family” combines sustainable forestry with green energy production. “That way is formed a circular economy as a conscious counter concept to the agricultural industry, points out the committed organic farmer.

The word „Friends“ in the project name, as explains Marco Bentzien, stands for the guests at Fundo Laguna Blanca. The visitors are treated like friends who are interested in the concept and emphasize ecology and sustainability. Also healthy nutrition, physical activity and preservation of nature are part of the common interests. “And that connects us tremendously”, the agriculturist explains. “We all treat each other very personal, take care of human closeness – but without appearing intrusive or missionizing.

There are plenty of options for joint events and adventures at Fundo Laguna Blanca – for example wonderful trekking on more than 50 km of trails and unforgettable horseback rides or mountain hikes. In addition, “Farm & Friends” can be understood as an exemplary educational complex. So there are seminars about sustainable agriculture, personal development or communicational trainings with horses. “And those who do not only want to listen, but also actively participate, they are very welcome”, says the agriculturist. After work you may enjoy a healthy dish at the Restaurant El Momento, or appreciate the incredible view over the Fundo valley from the cosy Lodge.
Time to wake up and concentrate energies
During all that work on the „Farm“ and the togetherness with “Friends”, Marco Bentzien never forgets his target, to recover the farmer’s dignity. He says that the farming community is one of the four professional groups that may save the planet – under certain conditions. “On the one hand there are the miners, if they avoid the total exploitation of resources. On the other hand the forestry people, if they take a stand for sustainable forestry. Also the business people belong to the group, but only if they return to honesty. And in case of the farmers it is crucial that they work within a circular system of innovative organic cultivation.

He has made it his headnote what the German neurobiologist Gerald Hüther has written in his book „Dignity“. There it says: “For those adults who have reached to be conscious of their own dignity, the time has come to wake up.” Marco Bentzien wants to initiate a worldwide network for the interaction of farmers with similar concepts. In addition, he is looking after participants, investors and interns for his project of the heart “Farm & Friends”. You may feel the passion of this young, dedicated agriculturist for the cause of the farmers, when he calls with bright eyes: “We need concentrated energy. Let’s do it like Gerald Hüther: Wake up!” Because soon it shall be said again: Farmer found dignity.

Ecologist and Conservation Scientist Dr. William Lidicker to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

BERKELEY, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, July 18, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Human beings tend to believe we live in a kind of splendid isolation in which we are in charge, having conquered and dominated this planet and everything else needs to get out of the way. But everyone is doing their job, from the tiniest bug to you and me. We need to care for our planet for humans to persist in a sustainable way, and that means allowing the other creatures we share this world with to persist as well. That’s conservation.

Dr. William Lidicker is a retired professor of integrative biology at the University of California-Berkeley. A celebrated figure in ecology, mammalogy, and conservation science, Dr. Lidicker has spent more than 60 years in the field.

“Many people conceive of conservation as being about enjoying nature for its aesthetic beauty or morality,” says Dr. Lidicker. “That's fine, but it's certainly not going to solve our problems.”

The field of conservation science is dedicated to applying scientific solutions to conservation problems. The problem is the future of humanity. If we can’t create a sustainable future, the alternative is pretty grim.

Dr. Lidicker began his tenure at Berkeley in 1957 as instructor in zoology and assistant curator of mammals.

“At that time, ecology itself was very new, at least in academia,” recalls Dr. Lidicker. “Our zoology department hired an ecologist and that was considered revolutionary at the time. Today, ecology is a big part of our understanding of how life works and how humans function on the planet. Ecology and conservation science have since become one in the same in many ways.”

According to Dr. Lidicker, it wasn't until the late 1980s that traditional biology departments, especially in highly ranked research oriented universities, recognized conservation science as a legitimate component of basic biological research. This transition paved the way for human ecology (or conservation biology) to flourish in the best universities.

“It's increasingly difficult to be optimistic, but you have to be to a certain degree, because pessimism leads to inaction and inaction leads to more problems,” says Dr. Lidicker. “The projections are not pretty. But there is some hope or optimism. If we get together and do what we can, we can slow down the process and eventually stop it. It's going to require a lot of cooperation around the world. Maybe climate change will force us to be cooperative. It might be the stimulus we need to get it together.”

CUTV News Radio will feature Dr. William Lidicker in an interview with Doug Llewelyn on July 20th at 1pm EDT.

Listen to the show on BlogTalkRadio.

CBD (Cannabidiol) Gains Popularity in the Skincare Industry With Its Promising Health Benefits

Rx Canna Care

Rx Canna Care

CBD Rx Canna Care

CBD Rx Canna Care

CBDs have their effect mainly by interacting with specific receptors on cells in the brain and body. Research has shown that there are many benefits.

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, USA, July 17, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Less than two weeks ago, CBD Skincare company RxCannaCare participated in the 27th Annual International Esthetics Cosmetics and Spa Conference (IECSC) in Las Vegas. They were one of quite a few brands carrying CBD-infused skincare products compared to just the year 2017 when only 3 company brought CBD to the beauty and skin care industry.

After attending IECSC, founder of RxCannaCare, Twompson Prater, shared how he was overwhelmed with joy at the amount of positive response they received during their three days at the IECSC. He said that this was the third time they attended a skincare conference and that they ended up selling more product than they had at all the Cannabis Industry events combined this and last year. "It was amazing how well our products were received by those who were new to CBD skincare," he shared.

Twompson attributed the success of their product sales to the vast amount of education he was able to provide as an industry leader, as well as recent research on CBD’s health benefits. He said that many attendees at the event had heard about CBD but didn’t quite know what it was or how it is used. “Education was the most important thing at this event since many of the attendees had been hearing about CBD-infused skincare for the first time,” he shared. "The fact that our product could also help people heal and live healthier lives, and not just make them look better, was also a key differentiator from our competition," he added.

The company’s booth at IECSC was filled with literature on CBD’s potential, including an entire section that highlighted its success helping cancer patients undergoing radiation treatment.

What is CBD exactly? CBD (Cannabidiol) is one of more than 80 active cannabinoid chemicals in the Cannabis plant. CBD, unlike THC, does not produce euphoria or intoxication. CBDs have their effect mainly by interacting with specific receptors on cells in the brain and body. Research has shown that there are many physical and mental benefits of CBD products for both treatment and prevention.

Next week, RxCannaCare will again be one of just a few CBD brands crossing paths with other skincare and beauty retailers at the Cosmoprof North America Conference. Cosmoprof is a Business-to-Business beauty tradeshow that introduces companies to revolutionary technologies and forward-thinking programs. It is the largest and most awarded B2B beauty event in the Americas, a must for businesses in the beauty industry. The event will take place July 29th-31st 2018 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas.

ANOTHER FIRST FOR EPICAN

EPICAN Bud Tenders await customers on 1st day of opening

Brothers Dwayne McKenzie, President and Karibe Mckenzie, CEO of EPICAN cut the ribbon at official store opening in Kingston, Jamaica

Kingston’s 1st Cannabis Store Opens its doors

Our long-term national strategic interest is to ensure the competitiveness of Jamaica’s marijuana industry”

— Karibe McKenzie, CEO EPICAN

KINGSTON, JAMAICA, July 17, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — ANOTHER FIRST FOR EPICAN

KIngston’s 1st Cannabis Store Opens its doors

They say where there’s smoke there’s fire! Last night Epican (Epic Cannabis), the first seed-to-sale cannabis retail store proved that when it opened its doors at Marketplace in Kingston, blazing a trail for over 300 curious cannabis enthusiasts in attendance. Concert performances from Jesse Royal, Bugle, Tosh, Queen Ifrica & Tony Rebel kicked off this momentous event in grand style. Spirits were high thanks to Gabre, the much-loved Dub Club DJ, with Maroon drummers from Accompong igniting hearts and souls with their hypnotizing beats.

Mutabaruka & Nicky Z curated the evening’s events, adding a level of soul and purpose to what has been an incredibly spiritual and historic endeavor so far. Doctors were on-site offering free medicals, qualifying guests for their medical marijuana cards. The climax of the night: the ribbon cutting ceremony signifying the end of one long journey and the beginning of another for both the McKenzie brothers and medical marijuana in Jamaica.

As the first company to be granted a license to cultivate and then subsequently received licenses to process and retail medical grade ganja by the CLA (Cannabis Licensing Authority) in Jamaica, EPICAN is proud to offer a quality product rooted in Jamaican sun and soil. The McKenzie brothers have spent three years educating local farmers in methods that meet international growing standards in an effort to bring marijuana farming out of the shadows in Jamaica and onto the bright light of a global stage.

In addition to EPICAN’s to a 43,000-square foot vertically integrated cultivation facility, they also have a 5,000-square foot, state-of-the-art extraction plant that is able to process and support its own organic cultivation output. This first-world facility focuses solely on cannabinoid and terpene extraction, identification and formulation for medical purposes within our Jamaican market. This ensures that EPICAN can continue to turn out a consistent product that is of the highest quality, potency and purity.

“It’s not about getting high,” says Dwayne McKenzie, President of EPICAN, “In Jamaica, cannabis will be produced by licensed producers and distributed to aid persons – It’s about the therapeutic proponents of the cannabis plant ”

Marijuana’s healing properties are attributed to its high cannabidiol (CBD) content and critical levels of medical terpenes and flavonoids. EPICAN intends to deliver these healing properties in the form of topical treatments, oils and raw strains of the plant itself, all for sale now at their Marketplace location. The McKenzie brothers and their partner Neil Taylor have the utmost respect and love for the marijuana plant, believing that it is a vehicle of limitless healing for those in need.

EPICAN currently employs over 50 local farmers at its growing facility in the Blue Mountains. They started CanEx, Jamaica’s first Cannabis conference so ideas and information could be exchanged between interested parties. EPICAN has been working to educate the public on the healing benefits of cannabis through their sponsorship of Rebel Salute’s Herb Curb, staying true to their tagline of: educate, medicate, elevate.

“Our long-term national strategic interest is to ensure the competitiveness of Jamaica’s marijuana industry,” says Karibe McKenzie, CEO when asked about Jamaica’s place in the increasing competitive global marijuana market. Since 2015, EPICAN has been studying and identifying indigenous Jamaican strains of cannabis as well as analyzing the ratios of cannabinoids and terpene profiles within those plants in conjunction with Jamaica’s Scientific Research Council (SRC), in an effort to pinpoint what makes Jamaican cannabis unique.

One day the Jamaican Blue Mountains will be known not only for its world-class coffee but hopefully also it’s world-class cannabis. EPICAN’s doors are now open for business in Marketplace. Come by to get educated, medicated and elevated today!
