Flared Gas Reduction Technologies

Methanol In A Box

Gas Flaring Reduction Technologies Align Forces In Global Cooperation

HOUSTON, TEXAS, UNITED STATES, September 30, 2019 / — Gas Technologies LLC ("GasTechno"), the parent company of GasTechno Energy & Fuels (USA) LLC and GasTechno Energy & Fuels Holding (UK) Limited, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with INFRA Synthetic Fuels, Inc. ("INFRA") effective September 23, 2019.

Both companies are leading developers of patented, small-scale gas-to-liquids (“Mini-GTL®”) technology. GasTechno® is the leader in the single-step conversion of natural gas to methanol and ethanol, and INFRA – a leader in Fisher-Tropsch (FT) synthesis of natural gas to syncrude. The companies see significant synergy in jointly marketing their respective technologies to oil producers seeking to monetize associated gas flares and achieve GHG emissions compliance. GasTechno and INFRA have commercially-proven technologies ready to deploy to address this massive global market.

Walter Breidenstein, CEO of GasTechno states, "The INFRA technology has been a strong competitor to GasTechno for many years in the small-scale GTL space. I have always considered the opportunity to work with other GTL technology companies to reduce costs and increase scale without additional risks. INFRA has a world class team in the global FT sector, and I want to cross-market and collaborate with them worldwide. It is time we support each other in pursuing gas flare monetization and emissions reduction compliance opportunities in the oil production sector globally".

With complementary technologies and financing strategies, the companies will jointly market their respective Mini-GTL® equipment on a lease finance basis to oil producers. A new $500 million Sovereign Emissions Reduction Fund (“SERFund”) has been created to purchase the Mini-GTL® equipment and then offer it for leasing to oil producers seeking to develop projects.

“Given the massive and rapidly growing global gas flaring market, we decided to expand the SERFund from $200 million focused in the United States market to $500 million that will support worldwide demand for greenhouse gas emissions reduction solutions” said Walter Breidenstein, founder of the Sovereign Emissions Reduction Fund.

Dmitry Popov, Director of INFRA Synthetic Fuels, states, “The GTL industry is still in its infancy. Until global multinational companies (MNC’s) hop on board the GTL technology bandwagon, we smaller companies will have to carry the torch through proof of concept, commercial development and multi-plant deployment. GasTechno will accelerate this deployment via its access to the SERFund by offering MNC’s low cost and low risk equipment leasing structures with no upfront capital investment required. INFRA supports this market approach and whether the end product is methanol or syncrude, we see the importance of developing the GTL industry prior to squandering marketing dollars on competitive posturing. We prefer to collaborate to build the GTL industry first!”

GasTechno and INFRA will initially focus their joint strategy on marketing their technologies to complementary customers. GasTechno recently announced a program for up to 20 customers to enter a risk-free equipment leasing structure for its Mini-GTL® 750 plants. INFRA will assist GasTechno with this sales program through their team based in Houston, Texas. Further, GasTechno and INFRA will offer an integrated package globally where methanol and FT syncrude and diesel can be produced and delivered at significant cost savings relative to any other global diesel technology. The new combined Mini-GTL® system will produce 450 barrels per day of methanol and ethanol, plus an additional 500 barrels per day of diesel at up to fifty percent (50%) lower capital cost then traditional small-scale GTL technologies. It is a major win-win for both companies.

Gas Technologies LLC ("GasTechno") – GasTechno Energy & Fuels (USA) LLC and GasTechno Energy & Fuels Holding (UK) Limited are subsidiaries of their parent Gas Technologies LLC. GasTechno has exclusively licensed to these subsidiaries its advanced, revolutionary technologies for converting previously uneconomical sources of stranded natural gas and associated gas into high-value liquid fuels and chemicals.

No Silver Lining Without Dramatic Changes in Policy on a Global Scale

You can hear movements within receding glaciers when you stand on them, and these desperate murmurings should not be witnessed idly. Nature is giving us a very clear message.”

— Rt. Hon. Katrín Jakobsdótti, Prime Minister of Iceland

NEW YORK, NY, USA, September 28, 2019 / — The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s (“IPCC”) Special Report on the Ocean and Cryosphere in a Changing Climate (“the report”) made international headlines when it was released Wednesday at 5 am EST. The report reveals the extent to which climate change has already affected the world’s oceans and the cryosphere, which is defined in the report as “the components of the Earth System at and below the land and ocean surface that are frozen, including snow cover, glaciers, ice sheet, ice shelves, icebergs, sea ice, lake ice, river ice, permafrost, and seasonally frozen ground.” The report also provided myriad projections that reveal the probable effects on the oceans and the cryosphere if the world’s nations either fail to or fulfill their duties as established by the 2016 Paris Climate Agreement—namely, to keep the average global temperature increase to well below 2 ̊C above pre-industrial levels.

The report is clear: Failure to meet the bar set by the Paris Agreements will be catastrophic for humanity, as well as species that lack the ability to quickly adapt to dramatic changes in their ecosystem.

To better understand the report, three of its authors—Dr. Michael Oppenheimer, Dr. Ben Orlove, and Dr. Robert DeConto—as well as two additional scientists, Dr. R. Max Holmes and Dr. Jennifer Francis, to speak before an audience at The Explorers Club on Wednesday evening. Following presentations by Drs. Oppenheimer, Orlove, DeConto, and Holmes, Dr. Francis joined the other four scientists on stage for a panel discussion that was moderated by host Dr. Philip Duffy, the Director of the Woods Hole Research Center and a former White House senior advisor on climate and science in the Obama administration. The event was part of The Explorers Club’s week of programming based around Climate Week.

The evening’s event began with opening statements from the Rt. Hon. Katrín Jakobsdótti, the Prime Minister of Iceland, who spoke passionately about not only the report, but some of the more salient effects of climate change, particularly how glaciers are disappearing from Iceland. She also spoke about climate change’s effects of the ocean waters surrounding her homeland. “The impact on the ocean is less visible, but no less profound,” she said, before relaying reports from several Icelandic fisherman, who claim to be seeing new species of fish that have migrated north because of warming waters. In her closing statements, she noted that you can hear movements within receding glaciers when you stand on them, and that these desperate murmurings should not be witnessed idly. “Nature is giving us a very clear message,” Ms. Jakobsdótti concluded.

Following the opening statement by Ms. Jakobsdótti, Monica Dean, a Senior Associate with the United Nations Foundation who works on Energy, Climate, and the Environment, provided the audience with some preliminary information about the immense scope of the research required to produce the report, describing it as “the most ambitious report cycle the IPCC has ever undertaken its 30-year history.” To draft the report, Ms. Dean said it required 104 authors from 36 countries, who worked for two years and assessed over “6,000 different sources of literature” and reviewed “31,000 government and expert comments.” After completing the report, the authors spent five days with delegates from 195 countries to approve a 42-page summary for policymakers.

The first of the presenters, Dr. Ben Orlove, was one of the lead authors for the report’s section on mountains. He described how mountain glaciers in low- and mid-latitudes of the Earth are shrinking due to warmer air temperatures. Dr. Orlove also detailed how these glaciers and the usual runoff they produce from seasonal thawing contribute to rivers that are then used as a water source for peoples living in high altitudes. Increased runoffs due to warming temperatures, however, can lead to damaging floods and landslides. Should the process of deglaciation progress more rapidly, the results will not only be more flooding and more landslides, but the eventual disappearance of the glaciers. This will devastate communities in proximity to these rivers by severely restricting their water sources. Warming temperatures may also mean less snow in mountain regions, further denuding water sources during the spring thaw and threatening local economies, especially if they are based on agriculture or tourism.

Dr. Orlove added that the disappearance of glaciers has altered the topography of mountainous regions, thereby making some areas impossible to traverse. This can have a cultural—as well as an economic and environmental—impact. Many UNESCO World Heritage Sites and mountains that are sacred to mountain cultures may be damaged or become inaccessible. France’s Mount Blanc, for example, may cease to be white.

The next presenter, Dr. Rob DeConto, was one of the lead authors for the report’s section on polar regions. Dr. DeConto presented a sobering look into how climate change is affecting glaciers in the Earth’s polar regions. He focused most of his attention on a series of graphs included in the report (see page 6 of the summary) that paint a picture of two vastly different scenarios.

In one, we continue on our current trajectory. If we follow this path, changes will become more pronounced in the future as the forces contributing to climate change compound and the effects (temperatures, sea acidification, ocean heat waves, etc.) become exponential in nature. Dr. DeConto, an expert on ice sheet dynamics, also noted that sea level rise could exceed previous projections because of changing dynamics within the Antarctic ice sheet system. Scientists did not fully understand the dynamics of this system until relatively recently. However, Dr. DeConto said the report shows that “Antarctica has the potential to contribute much more to sea level than we were thinking just five years ago.” Particularly after 2100, this could mean several meters in sea level rise. This will have a tremendous impact on existing coastal communities, especially small island nations.

The other path, which is more likely if we comply with the conditions of the Paris Agreement, shows these negative trends slowing or stopping entirely. In attempting to strike an optimistic tone, Dr. DeConto concluded, saying, “Even though there is going to be an ongoing increase in sea levels…you don’t turn the ice sheets around in decades or even centuries, but you can see it’s a much, much rosier picture with perhaps less than a meter of sea level rise even centuries out into the future, and that’s something that I think we can all probably deal with and tolerate.”

Dr. Michael Oppenheimer, the next presenter, was one of the lead authors for the report’s section on sea level rise. Dr. Oppenheimer opened his remarks with a call for hope, but tempered this by admitting that his initial response to the findings was, “There’s a lot for us to do.” This especially pertains to adaptions and emissions reductions that can mitigate the effects and acceleration of sea level rise. Unfortunately, he noted that, “We’ve fallen further and further behind.”

Dr. Oppenheimer focused on a future in which sea levels continue to rise unabated. In this scenario, storm surges “will be riding on top of a higher sea level, so…the storm surge goes further inland.” Consequently, flooding in coastal areas becomes more common and so-called 100-year weather events become relatively common occurrences. By 2050, in many places around the world (including the East Coast of the United States), these storms may become annual events. Without adaptations and attempts to curb emissions, many coastal areas and small island nations will cease to be inhabitable without tremendous amounts of capital to either rebuild structures to accommodate frequent flooding or create barrier systems that keep sea water out.

The final presenter, Dr. Holmes, is a Senior Scientist and Deputy Director at the Woods Hole Research Center. Dr. Holmes spoke about the section of the report that focused on permafrost. “Permafrost is frozen ground,” he said. “It’s technically defined as ground that’s at or below the freezing point of water for two or more years consecutively, but in practice it’s ground that’s been frozen for hundreds or thousands or tens of thousands of years.” Permafrost can be found underneath approximately 25 percent of the land area in the northern hemisphere.

Dr. Holmes said that as much as 70 percent of the near-surface permafrost in this region may be lost by 2100 due to rising air temperatures. On top of potentially damaging animals and people who rely on ecosystems underlaid by permafrost, thawing permafrost may release a great deal of carbon into the atmosphere, thereby contributing even more to climate change. To put into context just how much carbon is locked in the artic, Dr. Holmes explained that there are currently 850 billion tons of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere; that there is approximately 500 billion tons of carbon stored in the vegetation around the world; and that there is 1,200 billion tons in existing fossil fuel reserves. In permafrost, “the thing that doesn’t get much attention…there is around 1,500 billion tons of carbon,” he said.

As permafrost thaws, bacteria begin to consume the organic matter that both contains the carbon and has been frozen, thereby releasing both CO2 and methane into the atmosphere. By 2100, Dr. Holmes said the report estimates that, in the best-case scenario, this will translate into “tens of billions of tons of carbon released.” If we do not act, he said, “We’re talking something over one hundred billion tons.”

The subsequent discussion began with a remark by Dr. Francis that seemed to capture the mood of the audience: “Thanks everyone for all that terrible news.” She added that, though the report does paint a ominous picture of the future if we fail to act, “One of the things this report does really well, and one of the reasons it’s so important, is because it’s really highlighting the changes that are going in two really important parts of the climate system: the oceans and the polar regions.”

Dr. Francis then emphasized that there is a vicious cycle in these parts of the climate system, wherein phenomena associated with global warming amplify one another. She used the melting of arctic sea ice as an example: “So far, we’ve seen the artic sea ice disappear by 75 percent in only 40 years.” As temperatures warm, more sea ice melts; as more sea ice melts, less solar energy is reflected back into space and is instead absorbed by the ocean; as the ocean absorbs more of the sun’s energy, temperatures warm; and so on, ad infinitum. According to Dr. Francis, this positive feedback loop “is causing the arctic to warm two to three times faster than just about anywhere else on the planet.” Additionally, this contributes to the thawing of permafrost and the melting of glaciers, particularly in Greenland.

Following the discussion, Mr. Julio Cordano, Chile’s Deputy Lead Negotiator for Climate, provided closing remarks. He noted that, while there needs to be more conversations between nations to address climate change, there is also a narrow window of opportunity. In the near future, he hopes that “we will be able to say we have a very substantial alliance of countries that are willing to increase their ambition and hopefully address the enormous amount of work that we need to do.”
This tone of conditional confidence in humanity’s ability to save itself from its own myopia had resonated among all speakers throughout the night. While the report makes clear that the effects of climate change will be severe if humanity does not work to reduce emissions, each of the scientists emphasized that adhering to the goals of the Paris Agreement will lead to significantly less grim results.

Dr. Oppenheimer described himself as an optimist in his opening remarks, adding: “It doesn’t pay to be paralyzed by gloom and doom.”

“We have the tools at our disposal,” he later added.

Meanwhile, Dr. Orlove claimed: “There’s twice as much glacier loss between now and 2100 with high emissions as there is with low emissions.”

Even Dr. DeConto expressed a hopeful tone while pointing to the two potential trajectories for the Earth’s oceans. Highlighting the projection that does not portend imminent doom, he said, “There’s still a lot of good news in this story.”

Dr. Holmes took a bolder approach: “Best case scenario is a hell of a lot better than the worst case scenario.”

Former PLS Logistics Employees File Complaint for Unpaid Overtime Wages

PLS Logistics faces allegations of violating federal labor law by misclassifying certain workers as salaried and exempt from overtime

PITTSBURGH, PA, UNITED STATES, September 25, 2019 / — On Friday September 20, 2019, former employees of Pittsburgh Logistics Systems Incorporated (“PLS Logistics”) filed a class and collective action lawsuit (Case No. 2:19-cv-01210) against the company to recover unpaid overtime wages. PLS Logistics provides freight brokerage and third-party logistics services to clients across the country. Its business centers on assisting clients with delivering their products through purchasing third-party freight transportation services on their behalf.

Plaintiffs all worked as Account Executive Trainees for PLS Logistics. According to the Complaint, Plaintiffs had to make dozens of calls to potential new clients each day and constantly respond to phone calls and e-mails from existing clients. Plaintiffs have all claimed that they routinely worked overtime as a result.

Plaintiffs allege that PLS Logistics violated the wage and hour provisions of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) by misclassifying Account Executive Trainees as salaried rather than hourly employees. As a result, Plaintiffs claim that they and and other Account Executive Trainees were denied overtime wages. Plaintiffs allege that although they routinely worked more than (50) hours per week, they failed to receive “time-and-a-half” their regular rate of pay for all hours worked over forty (40) in a workweek.

Plaintiffs’ attorney Benjamin L. Davis, III of the Law Offices of Peter T. Nicholl explains, “when an employee is not actually performing administrative work at a level which would qualify them for an exemption under the law, they should be paid overtime premiums for working over forty (40) hours a week.”

Additional information regarding how other employees of PLS Logistics can join this case can be found here or by calling the Law Offices of Peter T. Nicholl at 410-244-7005. The case is entitled Catalo, et al. v. Pittsburg Logistics Systems, Inc. (Western District of Pennsylvania).

World’s Largest Fuel Cell Heavy Truck Rollout Underway

The Future of Heavy Vehicle Propulsion is Hydrogen

JMC, a Ford Motor Company joint venture, launches Class 8 (42t) fuel cell heavy trucks, powered by Horizon.

SHANGHAI, CHINA, September 25, 2019 / — Horizon Fuel Cell Technologies have unveiled the first of the road-certified 42t fuel cell trucks made by Ford Motor Company joint venture company JMC, representing one of the first purpose-built Class 8 fuel cell trucks in the world. With around 1.3 million new heavy trucks hitting China’s roads every year, it is crucial to remove dependence on fossil fuels in this vehicle category, where each truck is estimated to emit around 120t of CO2 annually.

As delegates prepare to descend on the 2019 International Hydrogen Fuel Cell Vehicle Congress in Rugao, it’s timely that Horizon, Jiening New Energy and partners have commenced delivery of the first 20 units of 42t trucks to be supplied as part of an aggressive plan to deploy at least 2,000 zero emission trucks within a few years.

The Horizon-led deployment of the JMC trucks will be easily the largest fuel cell heavy duty truck fleet in the world and a significant step forward in clean mobility for heavy vehicles. With driving range up to 500km, the fuel cell trucks already offer great utility for busy logistics operations. However, Horizon is now busy designing the next generation zero emission heavy trucks with a driving range of 1,600km.

Heavy vehicles are a hotbed of activity in global efforts to decarbonize transport systems, with full-size, Class 8 trucks offering enormous potential for reduction in undesirable air emissions from diesel engines. Long-haul and port trucks are highly suited to fuel cell electric propulsion, with hydrogen offering long driving ranges and quick refill, with daily operations that are no different to traditional combustion-engine trucks.

Horizon has been rolling out progressively larger fuel cell systems working with several vehicle partners, and recently commenced high-volume production of the highest power PEM fuel cells in the world, suited to heavy vehicles, trains, ships and port equipment. Single stacks capable of 300kW are scheduled for release in 2020.

Mr. George Gu, Chairman of Horizon Group, commented “Here our 150kW fuel cells are deployed in a scenario where the operational and economic drivers for hydrogen are strong. Such deployments justify our investment in new facilities with a capacity of 10,000 large fuel cell systems per year. Our partner Jiening New Energy chose Horizon to get the trucks to market quickly, powered by high quality fuel cells that have been proven in other vehicle platforms.”

About Horizon:
Horizon is a fuel cell pioneer and global leader in fuel cell commercialization, having been engaged in fuel cell R&D for 16 years. Horizon supplies a full range of fuel cell systems, from low power air-cooled fuel cells through to high power automotive systems over 100kW, and containerized MW-scale fuel cell power plants. Horizon has deep IP in all core technologies of PEM fuel cells, from catalyst, membrane electrode, bipolar plates and stacks, to system control.

Tarps Now® Announces New Storm Recovery Materials

Company increases merchandising focus on natural disaster recovery

ST. JOSEPH, MICHIGAN, UNITED STATES, September 24, 2019 / — When natural disasters strike, homes are destroyed, jobs and lives are lost, and local economies are decimated. Even when limited storm or earthquake damage causes damage to roofing, windows, interior rooms and thresholds, ready access to heavy duty tarps can quickly provide coverage that enhances the ability to effect lasting repairs while preserving things that have not been destroyed.

To meet the ever-increasing number of natural disasters associated with climate change, leading U.S. based tarp materials supplier, Tarps Now® has substantially increased its supplies of Super Heavy Duty Tarps in anticipation of future hurricanes and other types of natural disasters that are becoming all too common in the Western Hemisphere. Prompt access to heavy duty tarps in disaster prone areas has helped to provide temporary shelter when homes were nearly destroyed, and when they were not, these same tarps were used to secure damaged roofing areas, walls and interior rooms as well. These are also often used to quickly set up tents that delivered immediate protection from the elements. In addition, debris netting tarps are often used to cover areas where inclement weather makes repairs difficult to execute.

Tarps Now® offers their heavy-duty tarp products for sale to the public, businesses, state, federal, military and other governmental agencies through the website, which also provides tarp material consulting services to such entities throughout the Western Hemisphere. In addition, the company offers custom tarp fabricating through streamlined technology processes which is engineered to meet the needs of government, business and the private sector in record times.
