First Portable Solar-Racking, Roll-Forming Machine To Be Unveiled At Solar Power International (SPI) 2020

Prnewswire | October 01, 2020

Roll-A-Rack, a faster, lower-cost, ballasted solar-racking solution, will unveil its first portable, roll-forming machine in October at its virtual SPI 2020 showroom. Click here for a video showing the inside working of the first solar-racking, roll-forming machine. The new roll-forming machine has been built by Roll-A-Rack manufacturing partner, New Tech Machinery in Denver, Colo. Like seamless rain gutters, which are cut to length on each installation site by a portable roll-forming machine, Roll-A-Rack produces custom solar racking on site and on demand. The new system simplifies the solar racking supply chain, eliminates waste and speeds installation time.

Angel Yeast Strengthens Low-Carbon Measures to Advance Global Sustainable Development

Capstone Green Energy | March 14, 2022

Angel Yeast Co., Ltd., a publicly traded global yeast and yeast extract company, has achieved another milestone in its green quest toward carbon neutrality by being awarded one of China's "Green Factories" by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology. The award demonstrates its unwavering dedication to reducing its operations' carbon footprint and demonstrates its tremendous and long-standing commitment to energy conservation and environmental protection. "As a leading global yeast innovator dedicated to bringing healthy and nutritious yeast-based products to customers worldwide, Angel Yeast shares the global responsibility to drive forward sustainable development by continuously advancing our pledge to reduce energy consumption and carbon emissions. The recognition from China's Ministry of Industry and Information Technology marks another major step for Angel Yeast in our drive to help China and the world accelerate towards the net-zero goal, " -Xiao Minghua, General Manager of Angel Yeast. Angel Yeast has increased investment in its manufacturing facilities to equip them with various carbon-reducing solutions—including energy-saving equipment and waste heat and pressure recovery—to reduce energy consumption and meet the company's new green energy production requirements. The company has increased its reliance on solar energy while decreasing its dependency on fossil fuels. Angel Yeast's factories can now recover waste heat created during manufacturing, increasing energy efficiency and reducing steam use. On the other hand, Angel Yeast can use more power because it uses cutting-edge water recycling technology in its business. In 2021, Angel Yeast began work on adding magnetic levitation fans at its Suixian and Binzhou manufacturing facilities. As a result, all of Angel Yeast's manufacturing facilities now include magnetic levitation fans. In addition, Angel Yeast also enhanced the boiler automation for its Egypt-based company in the same year, installing magnetic suspension chillers for its yeast manufacturing plant in Chongzuo. Another thing that happened this year was that Angel Yeast made twenty-eight technological changes to its plants worldwide. This meant that the company cut its carbon dioxide output by 19,700 tons, cut its power consumption per ton of yeast by 1.4 percent, cut its steam consumption by 2.5 percent, and cut its water consumption by 3.1 percent.

Ultra Safe Nuclear Technologies Supplies Advanced Nuclear Thermal Propulsion Design To NASA

Ultra Safe Nuclear Technologies | October 20, 2020

Ultra Safe Nuclear Technologies (USNC-Tech) has delivered a design concept to NASA as part of a study on nuclear thermal propulsion (NTP) flight demonstration. NTP technology provides unprecedented high-impulse thrust performance for deep space missions such as crewed missions to the moon and Mars. The NASA-sponsored study, managed by Analytical Mechanics Associates (AMA), explored NTP concepts and designs enabling deep space travel. We want to lead the effort to open new frontiers in space, and do it quickly and safely," said Dr. Michael Eades, principal engineer at USNC-Tech. "Our engine maximizes the use of proven technology, eliminates failure modes of previous NTP concepts, and has a specific impulse more than twice that of chemical systems."

Duke Energy Starts Construction on 50-megawatt Cleveland County, N.C., solar project

Duke Energy | February 25, 2021

Extending its huge clean-energy portfolio, Duke Energy has begun construction on the 50-MW Broad River Solar power plant in Cleveland County, N.C. The task will be possessed and worked by Duke Energy Renewables, a business auxiliary of Duke Energy. The undertaking was chosen as a component of the serious offering measure set up by 2017's milestone solar enactment in North Carolina. The power plant will contain in excess of 170,000 solar boards across around 500 sections of land close to Boiling Springs. The office resolution what could be compared to 12,500 homes. It is relied upon to arrive at business activity before the finish of 2021. "Solar power continues to play a big role in our aggressive pursuit to reduce carbon emissions and achieve our net-zero carbon goal for 2050," said Stephen De May, Duke Energy's North Carolina president. "We'll continue to deliver renewable energy by building and purchasing more carbon-free power for our customers." Under North Carolina's Competitive Procurement for Renewable Energy, proposed projects should be constructed where there is a requirement for energy limit on the Duke Energy framework in North Carolina or South Carolina. The offers can emerge out of any organization, including Duke Energy, and can be as power buy arrangements (PPA), utility self-created offices or utility resource acquisitions. "In addition to increasing the renewable energy resources in the state, the project will also deliver significant economic benefits to Cleveland County," said Chris Fallon, president of Duke Energy Renewables. During top construction, Broad River Solar will create around 120 positions. Alongside circuitous financial advantages that go with solar venture advancement, like expanded nearby spending in the help and construction businesses, Broad River Solar will likewise monetarily affect the neighborhood local area by giving neighborhood charge incomes to the province and nearby school regions, just as important installments to the partaking landowners. The office's plan, obtainment of inverters, equilibrium of plant frameworks and construction of the task will be performed by Swinerton. The solar power produced by Broad River Solar will be sold through a 20-year power buy arrangement. On account of the venture, the Duke Energy Foundation as of late granted a $5,000 award to the Cleveland County Schools Educational Foundation and Crest High School to add an environmentally friendly power and green construction abilities module into the school's labor force advancement educational plan. About Duke Energy Corporation Headquartered in Charlotte, N.C., Duke Energy is one of the largest energy holding companies in the United States. Its Electric Utilities and Infrastructure business unit serves approximately 7.5 million customers located in six states in the Southeast and Midwest.
