Columbia Pulp Columbia Pulp mill opening moved to May
When fully operational, the pulp mill near Lyons Ferry is expected to employ about 100 people.
STARBUCK — The opening of the Columbia Pulp mill is now “looking like mid- to the end of May,” said John Begley, chief executive officer.
 
Developers of $184 million straw-pulp mill had expected to be in operation by the end of this month. But while all major equipment has been installed, making sure the wiring and piping are up to specifications is taking time, Begley said.
Located on 45-acre site near Lyons Ferry, the facility will convert wheat and seed alfalfa straw from a 75-mile radius into pulp to be used as consumer and molded-fiber products.

Este longevo tren que se encuentra en la ciudad costera de Byron Bay, Nueva Gales del Sur, Australia, que data de 1949, se convirtió en una locomotora amigable con el medio ambiente que funciona sólo con energía solar.

Originalmente fue construido en 1949, pero en 2017 la compañía Byron Bay Railroad comenzó su restauración y lo convirtió en un tren que se mueve gracias a la energía solar.

«Este es el primer tren solar a nivel mundial y BBRC (Byron Bay Railroad Company) se enorgullece de traer esta tecnología y solución a Byron Bay», indica la empresa en su sitio de internet.

emisiones de CO2Aumentan las emisiones de CO2 al mayor ritmo en 5 años

Las emisiones globales de dióxido de carbono (CO2), el principal gas causante del calentamiento global, no sólo han seguido creciendo, sino que en 2018 aceleraron su progresión al 1,7%, un ritmo no alcanzado desde 2013, a causa sobre todo de China, India y Estados Unidos, informa Efe.

Esos tres países representaron un 85% de la subida del pasado año, que se debió en una parte importante a la entrada en servicio de nuevas centrales de electricidad producida con carbón, informó la Agencia Internacional de la Energía (AIE), que este martes publicó su informe anual sobre la demanda energética mundial.
