Supplied by DuPont Clean Technologies to Reduce Environmental Impact
WILMINGTON, Del. (PRWEB) July 17, 2017
The Chinese Petroleum Corporation (CPC) awarded DuPont Clean Technologies (DuPont) the contract to supply the technology license, engineering and proprietary equipment for a MECS® DynaWave® wet gas scrubbing unit to be installed at its Taoyuan refinery in Taiwan in August 2015. This scrubbing system has recently gone into operation for two sulfur recovery units (SRUs) at the site, in time for CPC to comply with strict emissions reduction regulations.
In the past, seven to eight days were required after turnaround of the SRUs at the CPC refinery before acid gas could be fed to the units and commence normal operation. As a result, off-gas from the catalyst would be released directly to the stack and into the air, causing environmental issues. CPC researched different solutions to resolve these issues, and finally opted for the MECS® DynaWave® scrubber, a scrubbing technology licensed by DuPont.
“CPC chose the DynaWave® scrubber for the high reliability of its outlet gas emissions when inlet gas SO2 concentration varies,” explained William Lam, senior business development manager, Taiwan and Japan. “This means there is no need to adjust DynaWave® equipment such as valves or pumps in order to meet strict emissions targets. The SO2 removal efficiency of DynaWave® turns an average of 10,000 ppmv SO2 at the inlet into a guaranteed outlet of less than 50 ppmv SO2.” At startup, CPC technical teams measured only 10 ppmv SO2 at the stack outlet.
“Two 2-stage Claus units in the SRU2 and SRU3 at the Taoyuan refinery will be treated in a single DynaWave® scrubber,” said Lam. The SRUs have a capacity of 100 tons/day (SRU2) and 200 tons/day (SRU3), respectively.
Licensed by DuPont, MECS® DynaWave® scrubbers are designed to work with a variety of reagents and handle multiple functions in one vessel. As such, the process makes it possible to quench the incinerated gas and remove potential particulates while absorbing the remaining acids from the Claus TGTUs. The technology also offers the flexibility of bypassing the SRU or the SRU tail gas system during maintenance and repairs, so operations can continue without interruption.
Over the last 40 years, the MECS® DynaWave® technology has been successfully installed and used at more than 400 sites around the world in different industries. In the oil and gas industry alone, DuPont Clean Technologies, which licenses both the DynaWave® scrubber technology and the BELCO® EDV® scrubber technology, has more than 150 successful wet scrubbing references around the globe. The large nozzles and open vessel design of the DynaWave® scrubbers result in units that are virtually plug proof and able to handle any possible sulfur particulate entrainment. This results in higher on-stream time, lower maintenance and operational expenditures for the operator.
The DuPont Clean Technologies division applies real-world experience, history of innovation, problem-solving success and strong brands to help organizations operate safely and with the highest level of performance, reliability, energy efficiency and environmental integrity. The Clean Technologies portfolio includes STRATCO® alkylation technology for production of clean, high-octane gasoline; IsoTherming® hydroprocessing technology for desulfurization of motor fuels; MECS® sulfuric acid production and regeneration technologies; BELCO® air quality control systems for FCC flue gas scrubbing and other refinery scrubbing applications; MECS® DynaWave® technology for sulfur recovery tail gas-treating solutions; and a comprehensive suite of aftermarket service and solutions offerings.

Nippon Instruments Corporation has announced the publication of a new application report describing the measurement lean tuna samples by thermal decomposition using atomic absorption spectroscopy.
Osaka, Japan (PRWEB) July 17, 2017
Nippon Instruments Corporation (NIC) today announced the publication of a new application report describing the measurement lean tuna samples by thermal decomposition using atomic absorption spectroscopy. NIC Application Note MA-3A-FD-013 includes complete information about sample preparation, calibration and measurement, and demonstrates the performance of the MA-3000 direct thermal decomposition mercury analyzer. The method complies with US EPA Method 7473, Mercury in Solids and Solutions by Thermal Decomposition, Amalgamation, and Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometry.
Fish and shellfish accumulate mercury in their bodies, often in the form of methylmercury, a highly toxic organic compound of mercury. Fish products have been shown to contain varying amounts of mercury from water pollution and species of fish with long lifespans and high on the food chain, such as tuna, contain higher concentrations of mercury than small, short-lived fish. When larger fish eat smaller fish, the predators absorb their prey’s mercury contamination in a process known as biomagnification.
Bioaccumulation in seafood also carries over into human populations and can result in mercury poisoning. Mercury is dangerous to both natural ecosystems and humans because it is highly toxic. It poses a particular threat to human development in utero and in early childhood, so accurate quantification of total mercury in tuna and other long-lived fish is essential in preventing mercury poisoning.
For the analysis described in the report, calibration is done using certified aqueous ionic-mercury standard solution diluted to the required concentration. Measurement was performed by the NIC MA-3000 analyzer, a dedicated direct mercury analyzer that selectively measures total mercury by thermal decomposition, gold amalgamation and cold vapor atomic absorption spectroscopy. The results indicate that the instrument provides measurement results within certification value for the analysis of lean tuna.
A copy of this report may be requested at shar-nic(at)rigaku(dot)co(dot)jp
About Nippon Instruments Corporation
Nippon Instruments produces a broad line of Hg monitors suitable for surveying for vapor-phase elemental mercury in air, and elemental and mercury compounds including methylmercury, in gases, liquids and solids.

Live on Kickstarter, the AirBay iPhone Case is a revolutionary all-one-design that stores and protects the AirPod wireless headphones.
Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) July 18, 2017
AirBay, the world’s first iPhone case that simultaneously stores and protects the wireless AirPods when not in use, is live on Kickstarter and raising funds to bring the project to life.
With the Apple AirPods, the number one concern with most users is making sure not to misplace them. While the wireless headphones come complete with a floss-like storage case, carrying both the case and a phone can prove to be too bulky on a day to day basis. The AirBay is the world’s first all-in-one phone case for both the AirPods and the iPhone that takes the guesswork out of wireless.
"My inspiration behind making The AirBay Phone Case came from listening to the public complaining about losing the AirPods and not wanting to carry extra luggage,” says founder and CEO Jeffrey Muench. “In such a fast paced world that we live in, carrying the extra case that the AirPods come in is a big inconvenience. Having your iPhone and AirPods together in one case made sense to me. One less thing everyone needs to keep track of during their busy day.”
The AirBay phone case is a patent pending case for the iPhone 7 and 7+ designed to make the daily grind a bit easier. No more digging around for the wireless headphones in a bag as the smart design makes the AirPods instantly accessible on the go. The best part of the AirPods, their incredible wireless versatility, has been vastly improved as users are now able to instantly access these magical headphones at a moment’s notice. The AirBay case offers secure, shake-tested storage, a design that remains remarkably thin, and versatile protection for both the phone and the headphones.
The AirPods have proven to be one of the most popular products in years. With the AirBay phone case, the number one issue with the wireless headphones has finally been solved in a sleek design that aims to streamline life for those on the move.
"Not only does The AirBay Phone Case bring your iPhone and AirPods together in the same case, the design is what make it great,” adds Muench. “Using a top end loading design for your AirPods, you can easily slide your phone in and out of your pockets without worrying that your AirPods will snag or catch on your pocket. Beautiful contoured edges on the case increase the grip the user has while holding their phone.”
The AirBay Phone Case is currently live and available to support on Kickstarter: http://kck.st/2vyEw1g

18% of survey participants indicated that they had achieved “dramatic benefits” from SecOps, while 41% indicated they had achieved “significant benefits.”
Boulder, Colo. (PRWEB) July 18, 2017
Enterprise Management Associates (EMA™), a leading IT and data management research and consulting firm, has released a new research report titled “EMA Research Report SecOps: Integrating with Operations, Development and ITSM in the Age of Cloud and Agile,” based on criteria defined by Dennis Drogseth, vice president of research at EMA, and David Monahan, research director of risk and security management at EMA.
Based on 251 respondents—62% from North America and 38% from Europe—this new report addresses SecOps initiatives in terms of role, team leadership, success rates, company size, vertical adoptions and geography. It provides telling insights into technology priorities, process and best practices, as well as metrics for critical use cases, including integrated security/compliance for performance and availability management, change and configuration management and IT asset management and audits. Additionally, it addresses the impacts of cloud, agile, digital transformation and mobile on SecOps directions.
“One of the most striking findings from the research was the multi-faceted nature of SecOps initiatives,” said Drogseth. “We were able to analyze the priorities and success rates of teams led by security, operations, ITSM, development and business/overlay—each of which showed distinctive characteristics. The bottom line being that SecOps is an emerging, critical arena for IT transformation—but it is not linear. It does not have a single face.”
This new research shows that the integration of security operations, fraud and compliance with critical areas in IT is now delivering significant values. However, these gains are not without their technology and cultural/process challenges. One of the more important findings was that when it came to obstacles, technology issues, especially those associated with more effective data management and toolset integration, almost categorically outscored cultural and process issues. The message to the industry should be clear: addressing more cohesive approaches to data sharing, analytics, automation and reporting between security and the rest of IT is an area ripe for innovation. Vendors that recognize this should be honored with significant opportunities for industry growth. Vendors that turn away from the opportunity and continue to settle within established markets, will eventually find their offerings less relevant to the future of IT.
Some other key data points from this survey are:
“This new SecOps research is truly groundbreaking in its direction. No other research has touched on these efforts and their outcomes,” said Monahan. “Findings positively show organizations that have begun their IT, DevOps and security operations integrations are seeing significant returns in operating efficiencies, improved IT and security performance from shared analytics and ROI from tools consolidations, just to name a few.”
A detailed analysis of the research findings are available in the report, "EMA Research Report SecOps: Integrating with Operations, Development and ITSM in the Age of Cloud and Agile."
A report summary of the research findings are available in the report, "Report Summary - Integrating SecOps With Operations, Development, and ITSM in the Age of Cloud and Agile."
Key highlights from the research are available in the “SecOps: Integrating with Operations, Development and ITSM in the Age of Cloud and Agile” on-demand webinar.

The All-Party Parliamentary Group for Photonics (APPGP) will emphasize the wide-ranging and innovation-driving role of light-based technologies and the need for workforce training in the field, the group determined in a recent meeting. Also at the meeting, Carol Monaghan, MP Glasgow North West, was re-elected as chair, reported secretariat SPIE Europe.
LONDON and CARDIFF, UK (PRWEB) July 18, 2017
The All-Party Parliamentary Group advocating with the UK government for photonics (APPGP) will emphasize the wide-ranging and innovation-driving role of light-based technologies — and the need for workforce training in the field — the group determined at its recent meeting in London. SPIE Europe is serving as Secretariat.
Following the British General Elections, the group reconstituted at its 4 July meeting, re-electing Carol Monaghan, MP Glasgow North West, as its chair.
Also re-elected were:
John Lincoln and Anke Lohmann of UK Photonics and Karin Burger of SPIE Europe also attended.
The group established that in their dealings with the UK Government they will emphasize bridging the technical skills gap as well as highlighting the enabling role of photonics in ongoing parliamentary business, such as legislation on driverless cars.
The APPGP is working towards a sector deal in photonics which would allocate budget from the government to the field. While this would be one desirable outcome, the group is also looking to ascertain whether a horizontal sector deal covering many industries would be welcome. Communications with the government will highlight the fact that photonics bridges and enables likely vertical submissions for funding, underscoring the technology’s relevance.
Regarding the Technical Education Bill before Parliament, the group will advise that:
At its inaugural event last February, the APPGP connected MPs with representatives of Qioptiq, Leonardo Systems, Cobalt Light Systems, M Squared Lasers, the University of Southampton, the Knowledge Transfer Network, and other entities who provided information about products, services, and opportunities offered by photonics.
The UK Parliament established the group in October 2016 to facilitate regular discussions with members of the UK optics and photonics community. Meeting topics are based on the UK Government’s Industrial Strategy, a consultation to address long-term challenges faced by the UK economy.
SPIE is the international society for optics and photonics, an educational not-for-profit organization founded in 1955 to advance light-based science, engineering, and technology. The Society serves nearly 264,000 constituents from approximately 166 countries, offering conferences and their published proceedings, continuing education, books, journals, and the SPIE Digital Library. In 2016, SPIE provided more than $4 million in support of education and outreach programs. http://www.spie.org

Local Movoto Real Estate Agent Eddie Rendon Created a Personal Manifesto to Forward His Career and Personal Goals.
Fresno, CA (PRWEB) July 18, 2017
Local Movoto Real Estate Agent and Fresno native, Eddie Rendon, began his career in the local fast food industry. As a martial artist and Bruce Lee fan, Eddie understood the art of building a personal manifesto to reach his goals.
"When I was twenty years old I managed a fast food restaurant, said Eddie. "I wanted to buy a home, but I didn't fit the criteria to qualify for downpayment assistance," said Eddie.
Eddie took the time to develop a personal manifesto that would serve as a statement of principle and call to action for his life and goals.
"I left the mortgage office with a plan. I was determined to purchase a home within one year," said Eddie. " I set aside a percentage of every paycheck in an out-of-sight account with the intention of building a down payment," Eddie said.
Within one year Eddie had saved enough for a down payment, developed his credit history, and maintained his debt-to-income ratios.
"I bought and sold my first home within a few years and purchased a new home with the profit," said Eddie.
It was at that moment Eddie decided to set his sights on a new goal: becoming a leader in the real estate market.
"I had a true desire to learn mortgage. I quit my salaried job and went full time as a commission based loan officer, eventually working my way up to iFinancial Group, Inc." said Eddie.
It wasn't long before Eddie saw success with his goal-setting strategies.
"As a Realtor® and loan officer for iFinancial Group Inc., I quickly became the office's top producer in terms of mortgage and real estate volume. In 2008, I was promoted to Manager of Sales & Operations at iRealty Group, the company's real estate division," said Eddie. "By 2011 I became Broker/Owner of iRealty Group."
"I found myself doing the same thing year after year. I did not want to become stagnant," said Eddie. "I heard Movoto advertising on the radio and saw Movoto billboards around town. The company had volunteered community service hours and was creating a buzz. My team and I are now creating our new home at Movoto Real Estate in Fresno," said Eddie. "I want to keep moving forward, with a company that is moving up."
Movoto Real Estate was founded on a simple principle: Selling and buying real estate is too complicated. That’s why Movoto has dedicated over a decade to simplifying it. From humble beginnings as a three-person startup in 2005, the company has grown to become the second largest online real estate brokerage in the US and the only one licensed in all 50 states.
With the backing of Recruit Holdings Co. Ltd., owner of the largest real estate portal in Japan, Movoto has developed a network of over 3,500 real estate agents. Movoto was selected four years in a row for Inc. Magazine’s 500|5000 fastest growing private companies. Over 26,000 clients have trusted Movoto agents with buying or selling their home and over 60 million people search for homes on Movoto each year. Learn more at movoto.com.

Noribachi announced the launch of their website featuring new products, digital services, hardware, software, cloud, and IoT (Internet of Things) technology. Noribachi has been named to the Inc. 5000, Forbes list of America’s Most Promising Companies and the Los Angeles Business Journal’s Fastest Growing Private Companies list.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) July 18, 2017
Noribachi, an industry-leading U.S. based technology company with a focus on lighting digitalization announced the launch of their brand-new website created and designed by the engineers in Noribachi’s Silicon Valley office. Noribachi was founded in 2011 with a mission to disrupt the lighting industry by offering high quality custom LED manufacturing for commercial and industrial applications that could be manufactured in real time and high quantities. “We wanted to create a platform for our customers, partners, and the global community to have a better understanding of what we do. The website will allow our entire audience to interact with our products and brand all in one place,” says Farzad Dibachi CEO of Noribachi.
Noribachi products are manufactured in Southern California and designed in Noribachi’s research and development facility in Northern California. The development of the revamped website, noribachi.com, was driven by the need to continue scaling in high growth mode, compete more effectively in the marketplace, and provide information in real time.
The intuitive website layout and rich content clearly communicate the Noribachi message while showcasing unique LED product capabilities. The new website uses JSON to allow for rapid and flexible information delivery. The website is optimized for mobile phone access.
The re-architected website was created to provide valuable information to buyers of industrial LED products. The product section was enhanced to quickly navigate product configuration and technical lighting requirements. A new section was added to highlight Noribachi’s digital services (hardware, software, cloud) and cutting edge IoT (Internet of Things) technology. The Noribachi hardware and software provide capabilities to detect, control, and securely manage lighting fixtures from anywhere.
Noribachi is the first LED lighting manufacturer to bring purchasing convenience and pricing transparency to the lighting industry. Now, industrial customers, electrical contractors and lighting resellers have options to buy Noribachi products in standard configurations on five e-commerce platforms: cheaphighbays.com, cheapwallpack.com, cheapofficelighting.com, ledfullspectrum.com, and colorfullumens.com. For the products on those websites Noribachi boasts a 72-hour lead time. From the moment you place an order online, the manufacturing floor receives the order electronically and begins building the LED light fixtures. This manufacturer-direct to consumer model is changing the lighting industry.
The newly introduced e-commerce websites also offer an industry program that benefits electrical contractors and resellers. Electrical contractors are invited to apply for Noribachi’s Contractor Affiliate Program and are directed to a section of the website dedicated to them. Contractors involved in the Contractor Affiliate Program gain access to financial incentives, engineering, manufacturing resources, as well as a dedicated team for support.
“The website also highlights BEST, Noribachi’s 'Bespoke, Engineered, and Specifically Tailored' manufacturing methodology, which allows us to build large configurations of our proprietary lighting engines completely customized for specific end customers’ needs,” states Esther M. Santos, CSO of Noribachi. If you have a question or need help finding a product, you can speak directly to an engineer on the Noribachi website through chat capabilities.
Noribachi’s efficient, cost-effective and fully certified products differentiate them from the lighting conglomerates and oversea competitors. Over the past three years Noribachi has seen 30% growth year over year and is projected to continue this growth through 2017.

Prifender’s use of artificial intelligence identified as key to complying with the EU’s GDPR.
(PRWEB) July 18, 2017
Prifender was just recognized as one of ten private companies with great potential in 2017, in Momentum Partners’ Cyber Security Market Review for Q2 2017. Prifender is the only privacy technology company noted in this high-profile watch list.
Momentum Partners is a global cybersecurity-focused investment bank. Each quarter Momentum features 10 companies from the 2,200+ they track and profile them in their Quarterly Market Review in order to raise their network's awareness to these stand out companies.
In its first review of technologies for addressing the challenge posed by the European Union (EU) General Data Protection Rule (GDPR), Momentum noted that “companies must be able to automatically discover and map all personal information across networks (structured and unstructured) and apply policies to the information.” With consideration of the various solutions that currently exist in the cybersecurity space, Momentum added that “existing technology stacks alone cannot meet the mandates handed down by GDPR.” Artificial intelligence, machine learning, automation and big data expertise, all foundational elements of Prifender’s technology, were identified in the report to be the “key capabilities and requirements of GDPR platforms.”
The GDPR is a privacy regulation that applies to the personal information of EU residents, wherever that data may be processed. The regulation has been receiving a great degree of attention from executives and boards-of-directors due to its high fines (up to 4% of a company’s global revenue) and its comprehensive breach notification requirements. The GDPR comes into force in May 25, 2018.
“We are thrilled to see such a large player in the cybersecurity field recognize the benefits in our technology. Our R&D investments focused on combining AI, forensics and big data with the conviction that this type of solution offers the most efficient path to privacy management. The recognition by Momentum that we are on the right path for helping companies with the GDPR challenge provides us with a great boost of confidence, and matches the positive reactions we are receiving from the market” said Nimrod Luria, Prifender’s CEO. Dr. Sagi Leizerov, Prifender’s Chief Data Solutions Officer underscored these statements and added that “personal information is a data asset that requires a granular level of tracking – the identity level. Any solution that cannot scale to manage many millions of identities across thousands of systems, cannot help companies address privacy requirements.
