MIAMI, FLORIDA, USA, September 21, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Mesothelioma Options Help Center of Florida is dedicated to providing the best possible legal and medical assistance to those stricken with mesothelioma or asbestos-related lung cancer. Anyone wishing to discuss their legal and/or medical options should call (888) 891-2200 to speak directly with an attorney from The Steinberg Law Group.

The Mesothelioma Options Help Center of Florida has endorsed The Steinberg Law Group because of their vast experience in handling mesothelioma and other asbestos-related cases. With offices in New York, California and Texas, The Steinberg Law Group has a national footprint that helps win the best possible financial compensation for clients.

Typically, asbestos exposure will have occurred sometime between the 1950s and the 1980s. Some of the most prevalent professions that encountered large quantities of asbestos include power plant workers, maritime workers, industrial workers, plumbers, pipefitters, electricians, mechanics, machinists, miners, railroad workers and construction workers, to name a few. Since the latency period for mesothelioma patients is approximately 40 years, most people diagnosed with mesothelioma or asbestos-related lung cancer in 2020 were exposed decades ago.

Although asbestos does not naturally occur in Florida, thousands of tons of asbestos were shipped to Florida for processing in Boca Raton, Jacksonville, Pompano Beach, St. Petersburg and Tampa. As a result, numerous buildings in the state of Florida contain asbestos. In addition to the asbestos processing plants mentioned above, asbestos was used in the construction and mining industries as well as at shipyards, power plants, chemical plants, auto repair shops, schools and metal works factories throughout the state.

Known jobsites, companies and locations with asbestos exposure in Florida include, but are not limited to, Big Bear Powerhouse, Crist Power Plant, St. Lucie Nuclear Power Plant, U.S. Sugar and Vero Beach Municipal Power Plant, Mulberry Phosphate Mine, DuPont Corp., Eustis Housing Project, Jacksonville Grammar School, NASA, Florida State University, Atlantic Dry Dock, The Hendry Corporation, Offshore Shipbuilding Co., Tampa Bay Shipbuilding, Gulf Marine Repair Corporation, Mayport Navy Station and Pensacola Naval Air Station.

Global Aluminum Market 2020 Industry Analysis, Share, Growth, Sales, Trends, Supply, Forecast 2027

WiseGuyReports.com adds “Global Aluminum Market Research Report 2020 Analysis and Forecast 2027” reports to its database.

PUNE, MAHARASTRA, INDIA, September 21, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Aluminum Market:

Executive Summary

Aluminum is an electronegative metal with a heavy oxygen affinity. It is commonly used in food & packaging and pharmaceutical industry because it is non-toxic in nature, protects food for a extended period of time.. Aluminum is a good electrical conductor and is therefore often used in electrical transmission lines. In addition, due to its high volumetric energy density, it is used as the primary propeller for the solid rocket booster engine in the space shuttle. Corrosion resistance, reflectivity and recyclability are other characteristics of aluminum which make it a favored option for various industrial applications. The growth of the global aluminum demand is propelled by innovations in the transport sector, technical improvements in aluminum production technology and processing machinery, and a rise in the use of aluminum in different sectors, such as building and foil and packaging. However, growing rivalry from competitors and volatility in the price of raw materials, such as alumina, are some of the factors restricting the development of the aluminum industry. Rise in demand from developing economies such as China and India and expanded usage of recycled aluminum goods globally offers attractive prospects for business expansion. As per the Aluminum Association Industry Statistics, in 2017 in US the aluminum generation was 1.4% of the total Municipal Solid Waste generation accounting at 3.8 million tons. This waste includes 1.9 million tons of aluminum from durable and non-durable goods. Lowering energy needs is one of the big obstacles confronting the aluminum industry. Another factor that is expected to drive the growth of the global aluminum market is the shift in the food & beverage industry towards packaged food, particularly in developing markets such as India, China and Brazil. The demand for aluminum in the packaging industry is expected to increase due to the rapid spread of processed food and beverage products in developing countries. As per the Aluminum Association Industry of the total 3.8 million tons of aluminum waste generated by US in 2017 1.9 million tons was from aluminum containers and packagings. However, it is expected that fierce competition from alternative materials such as glass and plastics will hinder the growth of the aluminum market during the forecast period. Amidst the COVID-19 Pandemic, the decline in import and export of raw materials have resulted in the shutdown of various production and manufacturing units. Even before Covid 19, the London Metal Exchange had stressed the sale price of metal ($1,750 / ton), which is now down to a low of $1,440 / ton, making 90 per cent of the world's smelters unworkable. Without some government funding, aluminum producers would have to close down the factory.

Fast Oil Analysis for Mining Operations Delivers ROI

TestOil Industrial Oil Analysis

TestOil offers comprehensive lubricant analysis for mining that significantly reduces downtime for very expensive equipment operating in harsh conditions.

Since we are headquartered in the heart of the mining belt and offer fast international shipping, mining companies can get samples to us quickly where we can turn them around the same day.”

— TestOil President Mary Messuti

CLEVELAND, OHIO, U.S., September 17, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — TestOil, the industry leader in same day oil analysis, offers comprehensive lubricant analysis for mining that significantly reduces downtime for very expensive equipment operating in some of the world’s harshest conditions.
The biggest concerns in maintaining mining equipment health are wear and contamination. This equipment operates in demanding environmental conditions: continually exposed to the ingress of metals, site dust and dirt; and operating for long hours in often extreme temperatures. Because TestOil promises same day results for all routine tests, mining operations can be confident that any anomalies will be caught in time to be corrected before damage occurs.
For mining, maintenance costs account for a large portion of operating expenses—anywhere from 25%-60%. On the low end, these maintenance costs include regular oil analysis. On the high end, these costs include replacing very expensive parts and the associated downtime. Ultimately, the average time between asset failures and the cost per horsepower hour are two important performance indicators for mining operations that regular oil analysis can significantly improve.
Routine and advanced TestOil fluid analysis will pick up the issues that affect mining equipment the most such as coolant leaks, incompatible oil, water condensation, high oxidation and wear metals. These are small problems to begin with, but if undetected and unmitigated will amplify to destroy complete systems. TestOil offers Analytical Ferrography at no charge if routine test results warrant it.
Companies involved in every stage of the mining process, from drill and blast to load and haul to processing to stockpiling to transport, need the assurance that their equipment will perform reliability and that their oil analysis program will provide quantifiable return. TestOil can provide that confidence.
TestOil President Mary Messuti said, “Since we are headquartered in the heart of the mining belt and offer fast international shipping, mining companies can get samples to us quickly where we can turn them around the same day. Time-wise there is very little difference between what we offer and in-house oil analysis. Results-wise there is a big difference. We have experienced oil analysis experts able to identify the obvious and less obvious issues and provide critical advice. In the end, that expertise is the best protection against equipment downtime and failure.”
With more than 30 years of experience in the oil analysis industry, TestOil focuses exclusively on assisting industrial facilities with reducing maintenance costs and avoiding unexpected downtime through oil analysis program implementation. As industry experts in diagnosing oil-related issues in equipment such as turbines, hydraulics, gearboxes, pumps, compressors and diesel generators, TestOil provides customers with a guarantee of same-day turnaround on all routine testing. With in-house, certified training professionals, TestOil offers lubrication and oil analysis training, private onsite training, certification training and exams, and educational webinars.

Recognising excellence in tantalum research and innovation

WEEE from phones and other sources is a highly concentrated resource of 30 or so metals, making it richer than many ores”

— Prof. Jason Love

BRUSSELS, BELGIUM, September 17, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — A team from Edinburgh University, UK, led by Prof. Jason Love, has won the 2020 Anders Gustaf Ekeberg Tantalum Prize (‘Ekeberg Prize’) for its paper “Tantalum recycling by solvent extraction: chloride is better than fluoride” published in Metals.

The Ekeberg Prize is awarded annually for excellence in research and innovation of the element tantalum (Ta) and is sponsored by the Tantalum-Niobium International Study Center (T.I.C.), the global trade body representing the tantalum and niobium industry.

Announcing the winner, the independent judging panel led by Richard Burt stated that tantalum recycling will continue to increase in importance, both due to dwindling reserves, and also because recycling is of great societal interest, adding that this work is an important step toward significant improvement in the chemistry of recycling, which deserves more attention.

The authors of the winning paper are Prof. Jason Love, Prof. Carole Morrison, Luke Kinsman, Rosa Crevecoeur and Amrita Singh-Morgan of the EaStCHEM School of Chemistry, University of Edinburgh, and Prof. Bryne Ngwenya of the School of Geosciences at the University of Edinburgh. The full paper will be reprinted in the October journal of the Tantalum-Niobium International Study Center (T.I.C.) and can also be downloaded at https://www.mdpi.com/2075-4701/10/3/346.

The prize and award ceremony:

Usually the Ekeberg Prize is awarded at the T.I.C.’s in-person General Assembly, where the winner is the guest of honour, but this year Covid-19 has caused the physical meeting to be replaced by a virtual conference (details here), which threatened to make the award ceremony somewhat two dimensional. However, not to be outdone, on September 11th Roland Chavasse, T.I.C. Director, visited Edinburgh University to award the prize in a suitably socially distanced ceremony.

“In a year when Covid-19 is causing so much disruption and forcing many of us to reconsider what is important in our lives, high on the list of priorities after family and friends must surely be meaningful work, and what could exemplify this goal better than helping society use a critical raw material more efficiently?” Chavasse asked.

There can be no doubt Anders Ekeberg himself would have found this year’s winning paper particularly interesting, since it was the difficulties Ekeberg had with tantalum extraction which caused him to name it ‘tantalum’ in the first place (after the Greek demi-god cursed to endure eternal thirst and hunger).
On receiving the Ekeberg Prize, Professor Love explained that the winning paper was part of a wider field of research which aims to develop a zero-waste solution to the question posed by waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE).

“WEEE from phones and other sources is a highly concentrated resource of 30 or so metals, making it richer than many ores”, Prof. Love described, adding that his goal was to develop recycling methods which allow society to avoid simply dumping hard-won materials back into the ground after briefly using them.

The T.I.C. wishes to congratulate all entrants whose papers are challenging the boundaries of current knowledge of tantalum, and which may well lead to significant breakthroughs into exciting new applications of the element.

The medal for the Ekeberg Prize has been manufactured from pure tantalum metal by the Kazakhstan Mint and the winners will be acknowledged at the T.I.C.’s annual conference, the 61st (virtual) General Assembly, to held on October 12th 2020 from 11:00 CEST. Full details are available at https://www.tanb.org/event-view/61st-virtual-general-assembly.

Independent Reserve adds Perth Mint Gold Token (PMGT) As The Rush On Precious Metals Continues

Jon Deane, Chief Executive Officer of InfiniGold

Users of Australia’s leading cryptocurrency exchange can now trade government backed gold in real-time and obtain exposure to bullion in their SMSF

The listing not only demonstrates the coming together of two leading Australian companies but marks an important milestone for the gold industry, investors and digital asset exchanges”

— Jon Deane CEO, InfiniGold

SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA, September 17, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Australia’s leading cryptocurrency exchange Independent Reserve, has today announced the addition of Perth Mint Gold Token (PMGT). PMGT is issued by leading commodities digitisation company, InfiniGold and is 100% backed by GoldPass certificates issued by The Perth Mint. GoldPass certificates are fully backed by physical Perth Mint gold, with the weight and purity of every ounce guaranteed by the Government of Western Australia.

Independent Reserve customers will be able to buy and sell PMGT on its secure digital asset exchange. The precious metal can be traded against major fiat currencies, including AUD, NZD and USD.

The partnership between Australia’s leading cryptocurrency exchange, underpinned by Australia's well regulated financial sector with the world’s first digital token backed by government guaranteed gold, creating a tokenised solution made possible by InfiniGold’s pioneering technology incubated out of RoZetta Ventures, the investment arm of the RoZetta Group.

Prior to founding InfiniGold, its core team was responsible for the development of SMARTS, the leading global market surveillance program which was acquired by NASDAQ in 2010. Therefore, it is highly experienced in building regulatory compliant capital markets solutions.

A strong regulatory foothold enables Independent Reserve to offer its services to Self-Managed Super Funds (SMSF). Unique to the Australian market, these funds allow investors to take control over how their retirement savings are invested. SMSF trustees can obtain exposure to bullion without the complexity of storing and managing the physical asset. With designated SMSF accounts and unique cryptocurrency tax statements powered by global professional services firm KPMG, Independent Reserve provides the ideal platform for SMSFs to invest in digital assets like PMGT.

"We see a lot of overlap between cryptocurrency and gold investors. As such I anticipate a lot of interest from our customers in being able to easily purchase and trade digitised gold assets," said Adrian Przelozny, CEO, Independent Reserve.

"The listing not only demonstrates the coming together of two leading Australian companies but marks an important milestone for the gold industry, investors and digital asset exchanges," said Jon Deane, CEO, InfiniGold.

"Independent Reserve's trusted reputation coupled with InfiniGold's affiliation with The Perth Mint and its store of the government guaranteed gold which backs PMGT has built a solid foundation for the institutionalisation of tokenised assets.”

Knife Community Supports Nonprofit’s Fundraiser

Major knife brands and custom knifemakers value the work of the American Knife & Tool Institute promoting knives as essential tools.

Supporting ‘Free to Carry’ is just one more way that the knife industry shows appreciation for AKTI’s legislative successes and the organization’s efforts to promote knives as valuable tools.”

— Curtis Smith, Vice President of Marketing, American Outdoor Brands

CODY, WY, UNITED STATES, September 16, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — The knife community stepped up with overwhelming support of the new venue of the “Free to Carry” fundraiser of the American Knife & Tool Institute (AKTI). The nonprofit’s event was held as a nine-day online auction in early August.

“This was the fifth annual fundraiser for our organization to raise money for our legislative initiatives at the state and federal level,” said John Sullivan, Director of Compliance at W.R. Case & Sons Cutlery and President of AKTI. “We’re excited that a much larger audience was able to participate than in the past. New people were exposed to the quality and variety of industry products available from our members and the creativity of custom work.”

Leading knife and tool industry brands including American Outdoor Brands (AOB), W.R. Case & Sons Cutlery, Chris Reeve Knives, CRKT, and SOG Knives & Tools, plus sales organizations J. Harding Associates and The Evans Group, sponsored this inaugural online fundraiser.

Unique one-of-a-kind knives from well-known custom knifemakers Tony Bose, Richard Rogers, Brian Tighe, Matthew Lerch, and Ken Steigerwalt sold well above estimated value. The auction provided a rare opportunity for individuals to own a knife by these sought-after makers, plus exposed more people to the artistry of custom knifemakers.

“A genuine thank you to the individual makers for participating. Each knife represents huge amounts of their personal time,” said Mark Schreiber, President of CRKT and event co-chair. “Several of these makers have faithfully donated every year because they believe in what we are doing to promote the industry and help individuals feel confident to carry and use knives.”

“The knife industry has been very good to me, said Tony Bose, a Blade Magazine Cutlery Hall of Fall inductee. “This is just a small way I can give back, and support the good work that AKTI is doing.”

“Supporting ‘Free to Carry’ is just one more way that the knife industry shows appreciation for AKTI’s legislative successes and the organization’s efforts to promote knives as valuable tools,” said Curtis Smith, Vice President of Marketing at American Outdoor Brands and co-chair of the fundraiser. “We sincerely thank William Henry, Spyderco, Chris Reeve Knives, W.R. Case, Fox Knives, SOG, Spartan, Leatherman, Master Cutlery, Al Mar Knives, Work Sharp, WE Knives, CRKT, Willey Knives, The Evans Group, BokerUSA, Benchmade, Smith & Wesson and WithArmour for the knives and other outdoor items they contributed.”

“Thanks to ‘Free to Carry,’ we are now able to plan for the next legislative session and keep working on several knife law initiatives that will benefit our consumers and the industry,” said CJ Buck, CEO Buck Knives and chair of AKTI’s Legislative Committee.
