BioLogiQ® and CMD Partner to Showcase CMD's Trash Bag Technology and NuPlastiQ® to Create the Strongest Environmental Profile Available

BioLogiQ | May 05, 2022

On May 3, BioLogiQ, Inc., a global innovator and manufacturer of plant-based biopolymers for use in the manufacture of plastic products, and CMD, the global leader in embossed drawtape bag manufacturing technology, announced that CMD's model 1270GDSE machine, which utilizes NuPlastiQ in BioBlend® XP, can produce embossed drawtape trash bags with one of the strongest environmental profiles available. These bags are not only cost effective, but also assist reduce fossil-fuel-based content by up to 35%, greenhouse gas emissions by 15%–30%, and provide strength to completed films, resulting in a 20–30% reduction in gauge. "NuPlastiQ is the best drop-in plant-based resin available for polyolefins, and CMD's machines have shown that it provides the performance profile required by bag manufacturers and the environmental profile desired by consumers." Sherman continued, "we're committed to showing the world that NuPlastiQ is the natural solution to the man-made problem of plastics pollution". -Steven Sherman, BioLogiQ's CEO BioLogiQ's BioBlend XP resins contain up to 50% NuPlastiQ and are meant to improve the sustainability metrics of other thermoplastics such as PE, PP, and PS. Here, you can see how CMD's machine converts BioBlend XP into class-leading drawtape bags. What is NuPlastiQ? NuPlastiQ is a plant-based, 100 percent renewable biopolymer that can be used as an ingredient in plastic goods that are now generated mostly from non-renewable resources such as fossil fuels. NuPlastiQ was developed to aid in the reduction of our carbon footprint and greenhouse gas emissions, as well as to aid in the reduction of plastic pollution in our environment and oceans. NuPlastiQ is attractive to microscopic organisms found in nature (microbes), and they consume it rapidly. When NuPlastiQ is combined with conventional plastics, it still stimulates the appetites of those microorganisms, but they also feed on the conventional plastics as well. NuPlastiQ functions as an appetite trigger for Nature's bio-toolbox, causing plastic items containing even a trace amount of NuPlastiQ to degrade far more swiftly and completely in the environment than products without NuPlastiQ, making them more environmentally friendly.

First Solar power facility becomes world’s first to deliver grid services

Power-technology | August 24, 2020

First Solar has named one of its power plants as the world’s first licensed utility-scale solar facility to commercially deliver ancillary grid services. The US-based photovoltaic (PV) solutions provider has said its Luz del Norte facility will now deliver a range of grid services, including automatic generation control. Coordinador Eléctrico Nacional, an independent system operator (ISO) in Chile, has added the facility to its portfolio of large-scale power generators. Chile Ministry of Energy environmental head Carlos Barria said: “We are very pleased with this achievement as this increases the spectrum of technologies capable of providing the services needed to maintain a safe and reliable operation of the electrical system. “These demonstrated capabilities are in line with our plans in integrating higher levels of renewable energy in our grid, which will enable us to achieve our goal to phase out coal-fired power plants by 2040 and to be carbon neutral by 2050.”

White Pine Renewables Completes Floating Solar Project in the U.S.

White Pine Renewables | March 04, 2021

White Pine Renewables is pleased to announce the culmination of the Healdsburg Floating Solar Project. The task will convey clean energy to the City of Healdsburg, Calif., under a 25-year power buy arrangement. At 4.78 MW(dc) and sited on lakes at the City's wastewater treatment plant, the venture is the biggest floating solar task finished in the United States to date. The power created by the task will cover around 8% of the City's absolute energy interest and is a significant piece of the City's arrangement to arrive at 60% environmentally friendly power before 2030. Moreover, siting the solar boards on the lakes tries not to utilize land for the task and will diminish dissipation and green growth development, profiting the encompassing grape plantations that depend on the treated water for water system. The Healdsburg Floating Solar Project was developed and is operated by White Pine Renewables. "This project exemplifies what differentiates White Pine," said White Pine CEO Evan Riley. "We combined innovative technology and an efficient capital structure to provide long-term savings to the City of Healdsburg." Noria Energy co-built up the venture with White Pine and Collins Electrical Company, Inc., a California-based development worker for hire, if establishment administrations. The Healdsburg project was finished in under a half year from acquirement to charging. Terry Crowley, Utility Director for the City of Healdsburg, described the project as "a cornerstone of the City's long-term plan to save money on energy costs and provide City electric customers with 60% renewable energy." Crowley added that he "greatly appreciated the collaborative partnership between White Pine, Noria, and Collins Electrical to deliver the project safely, efficiently and in an extremely short period of time." Noria's CEO Jon Wank noted that the Noria-White Pine partnership "leveraged Noria's experience in floating solar technology and White Pine's development experience to create a project that delivers low-cost renewable energy while creating environmental benefits." While still a little bit of the by and large solar market, floating PV is turning out to be progressively mainstream as a result of its double land use reason and for the most part higher energy creation because of the cooling impacts of water and wind. About White Pine Renewables White Pine Renewables is a renewable energy development company that provides competitively priced, long-term PPAs to leading commercial, industrial and public-sector customers. Focusing on projects ranging from 1 to 20 MW(dc), White Pine originates, develops, finances and operates projects throughout the U.S., with key areas of focus in California and the Midwest.
