KC Recycling Expands to Recycle All of Canada’s CRT Television Glass

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 29 novembre 2019

KC Recycling, the leading recycler in the Pacific Northwest for cathode-ray tube (CRT) glass from old televisions, lead-acid batteries, and electronic scrap, announces significant investments to add capacity for all of Canada’s scrap CRT glass. With the imminent closure of the smelter in Belladune, New Brunswick, KC Recycling’s investment will enable the CRT Glass in eastern Canada to continue being recycled after the closure.
CRT glass recycling is critical because it recycles the lead content into new products and eliminates an environmental hazard that could arise from inadequate disposal of lead. KC Recycling has been a leader in this process for many years, processing most of the glass generated in western Canada and the Pacific Northwest. In order to expand capacity, the company is adding an additional shift to the production schedule, creating new jobs in the Kootenay region of British Columbia. It is also investing significant capital in production equipment to increase daily throughput. The investments include an automated conveyance and storage system at the KC Recycling facility in Trail, British Columbia.

Works of Lynn Chadwick and Geoffrey Clarke

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 30 ottobre 2015

Lynn Chadwick and Geoffrey ClarkeLondon. From 23rd October – 28th November 2015, Pangolin London will present the works of Lynn Chadwick and Geoffrey Clarke, two of the greatest modern British sculptors of the 20th Century. The exhibition, titled Conjunction, is the first to focus exclusively on the prolific careers of the ‘geometry of fear’ sculptors and will provide a rare opportunity to experience a vast selection of works spanning five decades, allowing visitors to experience the intertwining similarities and differences of their visual language. Highlights of the exhibition include:
· Clarke and Chadwick’s entries to worldwide sculpture competition The Unknown Political Prisoner exhibited together for the first time since 1953.
· Clarke’s candlesticks commissioned for Coventry Cathedral’s high altar, part of his decade-long series of commissions for its reconstruction following severe bombing during World War II. Clarke is best-known for his vast metal crown of thorns and stained glass windows which are the centre piece of the restored Coventry Cathedral – these constituted two of the most significant public commissions of the post-war period which remarkably, Clarke was awarded the year after graduating from the Royal College of Art.
· Previously unexhibited works on loan from several private collections.
· Chadwick rarely accepted public commissions and this exhibition is a rare opportunity to see the maquettes for two of Chadwick’s few public commissions, R34 1957 and Manchester Sun 1963.
· As part of the exhibition a colossal Lynn Chadwick sculpture, titled Sitting Couple on a Bench (pictured above), has been installed alongside the canal in King’s Cross. (Photo: Lynn Chadwick and Geoffrey Clarke)

Market quality European wine

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 27 dicembre 2009

Small wine producers across Europe will be raising a glass to the University of Glasgow this New Year for helping raise the profile of their high quality products. Glasgow Research Fellow, Dr Pamela Clayton, led a collaborative project with ten European partners called ‘Marketing European Wine: training for micro producers’ which aimed to provide small wine producers in emerging wine areas of Europe with training in marketing tailored to their specific needs. After extensive consultation with the wine producers themselves, the project has culminated in a multilingual website – http://www.gla.ac.uk/wine/ – which includes information about marketing and a free course that can be undertaken as self-directed learning or with the help of the appropriate partner institution. Small wine producers across Europe were surveyed to better understand their marketing needs, the resources available to them and their priorities and difficulties. The overall aim is to help raise the profile of small wineries and wine-producing cooperatives and improve sales of their high quality products.
