Show #1476 Good morning, good afternoon and good evening wherever you are in the world, welcome to EV News Daily, your trusted source of EV information. It's Monday 23rd May. I'm Blake Boland, and I've gone through every EV story today so that you don't have to! Lithium giant Tianqi to form JV with NIO's semi-solid-state battery supplier WeLion -Tianqi is one of China's largest lithium producers, with a battery-grade lithium metal capacity of about 2,900 tons in 2020, accounting for almost half of China's total lithium metal capacity. - Lithium metal has a very small density of 0.534 g/cm3 and a capacity of up to 3,860 mA-h/g, ten times that of the current graphite cathode material (372 mA-h/g), with a higher energy density, WeLion said. -Nio unveiled plans to offer 150 kWh semi-solid-state batteries when it unveiled its flagship sedan, the ET7, at the NIO Day 2020 event on January 9, 2021, generating much attention for this new battery. -NIO never disclosed the supplier of the battery, however, on March 27, WeLion chief scientist and founder Li Hong that the company is the supplier of the electric vehicle maker's solid-state battery. Original Source : Lithium giant Tianqi to form JV with NIO's semi-solid-state battery supplier WeLion - CnEVPost BYD Seal gets 22,637 orders in 7 hours of pre-sale - As of 10 pm on May 20, pre-sale orders for the Seal reached 22,637 units, just seven hours after pre-sale officially began at 3 pm, according to information shared by BYD today. - At a time when Chinese car company sales generally plunged in April, BYD saw its NEV sales reach 106,042 units, the second consecutive month of more than 100,000 units. - In a conservative scenario, BYD expects it to sell 1.5 million units in 2022, with sales expected to reach 2 million if supply chain conditions improve, according to the minutes of a previous meeting. Original Source : BYD Seal gets 22,637 orders in 7 hours of pre-sale - CnEVPost Hyundai Motor Group to build $5.54B EV plant and battery factory in Georgia - Hyundai Motor Group (HMG) entered into an agreement with the State of Georgia to build its first dedicated full electric vehicle and battery manufacturing facilities in the US. The new EV plant and battery manufacturing facilities represent an investment of approximately US$5.54 billion. Non-affiliated Hyundai Motor Group suppliers will invest approximately another $1 billion in the project. - The new facility will break ground in early 2023 and is expected to begin commercial production in the first half of 2025 with an annual capacity of 300,000 units. The battery manufacturing facility will be established through a strategic partnership, the details of which will be disclosed later.  - The EV and battery manufacturing plant will be located on a dedicated 2,923-acre site in Bryan County, Georgia (the Bryan County Megasite), with immediate access to I-95 and I-16 highways which creates easy access to 250 major metro areas. It is less than 50 kilometers (31 miles) from the Port of Savannah, the single-largest and fastest-growing container terminal in the US with two Class I rail facilities on-site. Rail service to the site is provided by Georgia Central Railway, a short line railway that connects to CSX in Savannah and Norfolk Southern near Macon in Middle Georgia. Original Source : Hyundai Motor Group to build $5.54B EV plant and battery factory in Georgia - Green Car Congress Nissan & Mitsubishi present compact EV for Japan - Nissan and Mitsubishi have presented a jointly developed electric small car for the Japanese market. It is marketed by Nissan under the name ‘Sakura' and by Mitsubishi as ‘eK X EV' and offers a range of 180 kilometres, according to Japanese WLTP standards.  - The Sakura runs on an electric drive system producing 47 kW and 195 Nm of torque. A 20 kWh Lithium-ion battery allows for the previously mentioned up to 180 km range, while the top speed is set at 130 km/h. Charging takes about 8 hours with a “standard” AC charge, and can be done as quickly as 40 minutes for a “warning light to 80 per cent” charge on a fast charger. A V2H reverse charging capability is also included.  - Kei-cars are popular in Japan, accounting for about 40% of the car market, and are limited to 3.4 meters in length, 1.48 meters in width and 2.0 meters in height.  Original Source : Nissan & Mitsubishi present compact EV for Japan - electrive.com Tesla Is Building a 'hardcore' Litigation Department to Seek Justice - Tesla is building a hardcore litigation department whose main goal will be to seek justice, not victory at any cost. Elon Musk said the department will never seek victory if a company is justly sued, but will never give up if the case is unfair.    - Tesla CEO Elon Musk announced that the company is building a hardcore litigation department that will directly initiate and execute lawsuits. He said the team would report directly to him. The head of the company made two commitments about how the department would work: The department will never seek victory in a just case against the company, even if it will probably win. The department will never surrender/settle an unjust case against the company, even if it will probably lose. - Those wishing to apply should send their CV to justice@tesla.com. A CV should contain 3 to 5 bullet points describing evidence of exceptional ability. In addition, Musk asked to include links to cases that the candidates tried. He is looking for real fighters who are ready to fight in the battles for justice in the courtroom. - ‘There will be blood' Original Source : Tesla Is Building a 'hardcore' Litigation Department to Seek Justice, (tesmanian.com) Sysco Intends To Buy Up To 800 Freightliner eCascadia - According to the Letter of Intent (LOI), the fleet would be deployed gradually between 2022 and 2026, with the first eCascadia delivery expected to arrive at Sysco's Riverside, California site later this year.  - In the case of Sysco, the vehicles will be combined with refrigerated trailers, but the press release does not clarify whether the trailer will be powered from the main battery to fully utilize the EV potential. - In the long-term, Sysco intends to electrify 35% of its fleet by 2030. The site at Riverside, California already is in a process of expansion of charging infrastructure and additional solar capacity installations. Freightliner eCascadia (Class 8 tractor) specs: -          up to 230 miles (370 km) of range -          Tandem drive and 438 kWh battery: typically 220 miles (354 km) -          Single drive and 438 kWh battery: typically 230 miles (370 km) -          Single drive and 291 kWh battery: typically 155 miles (249 km) Original Source : Sysco Intends To Buy Up To 800 Freightliner eCascadia (insideevs.com) EV Surge Likely After Labor Wins In Australia - ‘'Yesterday (Saturday, May 21) witnessed a historic Labor Party win in Australian federal politics. For 10 years, the Liberal federal government has denied climate change science and slow-walked the transition to renewable energy. Yesterday's historic defeat for this coalition will change all that and likely lead to an EV surge.''  - They are not hanging about — Labor's Electric Car Discount will begin on 1 July 2022, the beginning of the new financial year, and only 5 weeks away! - ‘'Australians love their cars. Multiple car ownership is common (I used to own three — one for me, one for the wife, and one as a toy). Because of this, passenger cars make up almost 10 per cent of Australia's CO2 emissions. To move Australians from fossil fuel burning cars to electric vehicles powered by renewable energy, Labor proposes exempting EVs from the 5% import tax and the 47% fringe benefits tax (a similar move to the UK government, which led to a spectacular increase in uptake).'' Original Source : EV Surge Likely After Labor Wins In Australia - CleanTechnica EVs are avoiding about 3% of global oil demand - ‘Plug-in vehicles avoided roughly 1.5 million barrels of oil per day last year, according to new analysis from Bloomberg New Energy Finance. That's about one-fifth of Russia's pre-invasion oil exports, Bloomberg NEF said.' - ‘The oil use avoided by EVs has also doubled since 2015, to about 3% of global demand, according to the analysis.' - While electric cars tend to get most of the attention, the analysis found that other vehicle types accounted for the most oil avoidance. Electric two- and three-wheeled vehicles—which tend to be popular in Asia—accounted for 67% of the oil demand avoided in 2021, according to Bloomberg NEF. - Those vehicles had an outsized impact on oil demand. Next in rank were electric buses, which accounted for 16% of avoided oil demand, followed by passenger vehicles at 13%. The latter were the fastest-growing segment, Bloomberg NEF noted.

A powerful movement is happening in farming today—farmers are reconnecting with their roots to fight climate change. For one woman, that's meant learning her tribe's history to help bring back the buffalo. For another, it's meant preserving forest purchased by her great-great-uncle, among the first wave of African Americans to buy land. Others are rejecting monoculture to grow corn, beans, and squash the way farmers in Mexico have done for centuries. Still others are rotating crops for the native cuisines of those who fled the “American wars” in Southeast Asia. In Healing Grounds: Climate, Justice, and the Deep Roots of Regenerative Farming (Island Press, 2022), Liz Carlisle tells the stories of Indigenous, Black, Latinx, and Asian American farmers who are reviving their ancestors' methods of growing food—techniques long suppressed by the industrial food system. These farmers are restoring native prairies, nurturing beneficial fungi, and enriching soil health. While feeding their communities and revitalizing cultural ties to land, they are steadily stitching ecosystems back together and repairing the natural carbon cycle. This, Carlisle shows, is the true regenerative agriculture – not merely a set of technical tricks for storing CO2 in the ground, but a holistic approach that values diversity in both plants and people. Liz Carlisle is an Assistant Professor in the Environmental Studies Program at UC Santa Barbara, where she teaches courses on food and farming. Born and raised in Montana, she got hooked on agriculture while working as an aide to organic farmer and U.S. Senator Jon Tester, which led to a decade of research and writing collaborations with farmers in her home state. She has written three books about regenerative farming and agroecology: Lentil Underground (2015), Grain by Grain (2019, with co-author Bob Quinn), and most recently, Healing Grounds: Climate, Justice, and the Deep Roots of Regenerative Farming (2022). She is also a frequent contributor to both academic journals and popular media outlets, focusing on food and farm policy, incentivizing soil health practices, and supporting new entry farmers. She holds a Ph.D. in Geography, from UC Berkeley, and a B.A. in Folklore and Mythology, from Harvard University. Prior to her career as a writer and academic, she spent several years touring rural America as a country singer. Susan Grelock-Yusem, PhD, is an independent researcher trained in depth psychology, with an emphasis on community, liberation, and eco-psychologies.

Diesmal mit Verena Kern und Susanne Schwarz. Die Weltwetterorganisation hat ihren neuen Klimazustandsbericht vorgelegt. Bei vier von sieben zentralen Klimawandel-Faktoren gab es 2021 neue Rekorde. Der Chef der Organisation hat eine schnelle Reduktion des globalen Treibausgasausstoßes angemahnt - und auch einen Fokus auf Verfahren, CO2 wieder aus der Atmosphäre herauszuziehen. Das Thema ist so drängend wie umstritten. Die EU-Kommission hat ein umfangreiches Energiepaket vorgelegt. Sie will damit vor allem die Abhängigkeit von russischen Importen beenden, aber es geht auch ums Klima. Dafür gab es viel Lob, aber es gibt auch kritische Punkte. Deutschland hat im vergangenen Jahr mehr Geld für Klimaschutz in armen Ländern versprochen - aber bisher findet sich kaum eine Steigerung im Bundeshaushalt für dieses Jahr. Der wird dieser Tage festgezurrt. Das Versprechen, das langfristiger formuliert war, wäre damit noch nicht offiziell gebrochen, selbst wenn sich nicht mehr viel tut. Praktisch würde Deutschland so aber weniger glaubwürdig, was die internationalen Verhandlungen zum Klimaschutz erschweren dürfte. -- Das klima update° wird jede Woche von Spender*innen unterstützt.

Saranno destinati a tutti coloro che vogliano acquistare un'auto, che abbia emissioni di CO2 fino a 135 g/Km, in particolare chi vuole rottamare un'auto fino a Euro 4, avrà diritto ad un incentivo maggiore. Deleidi ci spiega, che è stato prolungato il taglio dell'accise fino all'8 di luglio, sia sul carburante che sul metano. Il consiglio è quello di affrettarsi per chi vuole acquistare un'auto ibrida, perché si corre il rischio che gli incentivi finiscano.

KW: Bridgestone startet neues, emissionsärmeres KreislaufsystemDen Kreis beim Reifenrecycling geschlossen:Bridgestone will, mit einem unternehmensweiten Fokus auf Nachhaltigkeit, eine neue Strategie anwenden, um neue Reifen aus recyceltem Material herzustellen.Dazu hat man eine Kooperation mit Lanza Tech geschlossen. Bei dem neuen Verfahren werden Bakterien verwendet, um Gummi abzubauen, Kohlenstoff einzufangen und das Rohmaterial für neues Gummi zu schaffen. Die Innovation von LanzaTech besteht in der Umwandlung von Abfallmaterialien in Ethanol, das typischerweise aus frischem Kohlenstoff aus fossilen Brennstoffen gewonnen wird. Bridgestone betreibt bereits seit Jahren Reifenrecycling, bei den älteren Verfahren wird jedoch auch weiterhin viel CO2 ausgestoßen.Mit dem neuen Verfahren will man diesen auf ein Minimum reduzieren. https://www.greenbiz.com/article/bridgestones-tires-are-going-circularBen&Jerry's will Treibhausgase der Milchwirtschaft verringernProjekt Mootopia für weniger Treibhausgas-Emissionen:Damit startet die Kult-Eismarke Ben&Jerry's ein Programm, um auf ihre Zulieferer einzuwirken. Man will damit erreichen, dass die Milchwirtschaft, die die Grundstoffe für Ben&Jerry's-Eis liefert , weniger Emissionen ausstößt. 15 Betriebe in den USA und den Niederlanden arbeiten am Pilotprojekt mit. Hier will man durch technologische Neuerungen bis Ende 2024 die Treibhausgas-Emissionen halbieren. Sobald gute Ergebnisse vorliegen, werden diese allgemein veröffentlicht, um diese der gesamten Milchwirtschaft zugänglich zu machen.Außerdem sollen dann die emissionsärmeren Produktions-Technologien in anderen Ben&Jerry's Standorten weltweit genutzt werden.https://www.benjerry.de/blog/2022/05/mootopiaÖkofen stellt sauberste Pelletheizung vorPelletheizung als krisenfeste und umweltfreundliche Alternative zu Öl und Gas:Aber nur mit einer emissionsarmen Technologie.

Betreiber ist das britische Start-up-Unternehmen Urban-Air Port, dass den Flughafen im Auftrag der Stadtverwaltung in Betrieb genommen hat. Man will damit das Potential urbaner Luftmobilität demonstrieren und zeigen, dass man damit die Luftqualität verbessern und Staus vermeiden kann. Sollte sich das Projekt als Erfolg erweisen, könnte es Modelcharakter für viele ähnliche E-Flughäfen weltweit haben. Laut Urban-Air Port ist der Mangel an geeigneter Infrastruktur eines der größten Hindernisse für die Entwicklung von elektrischen Fluggeräten für die urbane Nutzung. Der Flughafen in Coventry ist so konzipiert, dass es vollständig autonom ist und sich in Elektrofahrzeuge integrieren lässt, um ein vollständig nachhaltiges öffentliches Verkehrsnetz zu schaffen.

Hello, everyone, and welcome to this edition of Manifest Density. Your host, Michael Moran, here to explore the intersection of COVID 19 global business and society. Manifest density is brought to you by the Global Smart Building and ESG data company Microshare unleashed the data today. I'm speaking with James MATTHEWS, who is an associate director at Carbon Intelligence, one of our partners in the UK. And James is an expert in indoor air quality and he has done a lot of work from his days at the University of Exeter. James, give us a little background on yourself. Yeah.    James Matthews [00:00:40] So I'm James MATTHEWS. I working for Carbon Intelligence. I've been prior to that with a young for 6 to 7 years looking at building standards and looking at how that can be implemented into buildings built kind of from a land developer point city into the base build and also from fit out project level work. So it's really interesting space and I'm very kind of keen to talk about it.    Micheal Moran [00:01:07] Well, we are living at a time with change expectations about all sorts of things. One of those things is the wellness and safety of the indoor spaces that they're going to spend a good deal of their time in a workplace is a great example. Obviously, commercial real estate in the office sector especially are eager to see people flowing back in. So are the people who run cities who worry about tax revenue and street level commerce. So we now know that air quality is part of the demand or expectation that some people have if they're going to go back into these offices. What are you seeing in the marketplace in that regard?    James Matthews [00:01:48] So I think my observations would be prior to COVID and the kind of lockdowns that everyone saw around the world, the well being narrative was all around productivity. And with regards to sort of indoor air quality, it was looking at reducing vaccines and the impacts that that can have on people's health. Volatile organic compounds, I should say, but also carbon dioxide levels. So there's been some really interesting research that suggests that proves that if you have CO2 levels that go over 1200 parts per million can have a real impact on your cognitive ability. So anecdotally, that's the equivalent of maybe going out for lunch and having a couple of points. So I've been taught and it's that kind of slowing down of your mental ability and it's it's all around that productivity piece. If you imagine you're in the boardroom and you've got the most important people in your company thrashing out a big deal and they've been in there for hours. The indoor air quality that's going to be poor. Can you be set? Decision making at the end of the meeting are the best decisions they're able to do. That was where wellness was prior to the shift I've seen kind of in the market is is about reassuring people that the space they now choose to operate in is healthy. It is a place that isn't going to do us any harm.    Micheal Moran [00:04:16] Sure. And it could be a doctor's office where they're making decisions that are relevant to your life and death. So obviously, these are not small issues. So I have to ask, as you're in the world and you're seeing the demand for this certainly is there among people who now feel compelled to go back into the office, they kind of want to know. But what what about the purchaser of this kind of a capability, air quality monitoring? Who is that?    James Matthews [00:04:43] So, yeah, I think you can look at this from a landlord developer point of view. If you're developing your next asset wellbeing, it's very much about sort of 10 to 15 years ago where sustainability was. Sustainability used to be a nice to have. Now it's a must have without. Your asset is already going to be behind the curve against its competition. The indoor air quality and wellbeing is very much on the up and is being used as a as a USP. So I have experience with a couple of projects in Glasgow, in Scotland, and there was a project there that we were working on and they specifically targeted the well building standards because a building opposite going up in a similar sort of time that was also targeting the well building standards. So it's very much about kind of creating a premium product in the market.    Micheal Moran [00:05:34] And of course, well, building is going to ultimately have greater value when it's sold and it's probably going to attract a higher rent.    James Matthews [00:05:44] Absolutely. Yeah. There's been there's been some interesting figures coming from from the US that would suggest assets with wellbeing certificates can come on a high premium bit for rent.    Micheal Moran [00:05:56] Hold that thought. We're going to take a quick break to hear from our sponsor.    Sponsor [00:06:01] Manifest density is brought to you by Microshare, a world leader in the technologies they're helping the world return to work safely. Our ever smart suite of smart facility solutions, including indoor air quality monitoring, predictive cleaning and room occupancy solutions, bring safety, wellness, sustainability and operational cost savings to indoor spaces. Learn more at microshare. I. O.    Micheal Moran [00:06:30] Okay. I'm back with James MATTHEWS. Carbon Intelligence. James, as you confer with clients and advise them on things to do. What is the intersection of these various building certifications? Brim and Well and lead and things like air quality? Do they get credit for doing this.    James Matthews [00:06:49] From lead in the in the UK isn't so much of a big thing. The main driver over here is is Brim, which is fairly similar. There is a cross crossover between well and Brim I think for about 33% if memory serves. So if you do some credits within Breeam, you'll achieve them and well and vice versa. So that certainly leads to some efficiencies. It is definitely becoming more and more demand for in the market and we are talking to clients more regularly about implementing such certificates.    Micheal Moran [00:07:25] And so if you let's say you implement indoor air quality monitoring, is it in and of itself useful to know or are there a series of actionable data points you're going to get that take you down a journey to improve air quality?    James Matthews [00:07:42] There are certain metrics because one of them say volatile organic compounds, and that's generally found from paint or off gassing, from new furniture or plastics, things like glues. That's definitely something you can see generally as a spike in new projects where things new new kit and new furniture is brought into a space. You would potentially clear the office of people for potentially up to two weeks, leave it with the air conditioning units and the fan crews running to extract as much of that gas out. And then you would then bring people back into the office. CO2 wise, you can increase the fan speeds, obviously circulate more and more out of the building and that too will improve the interactions.    Micheal Moran [00:08:31] So I would imagine as you take someone through the process of improving the wellness of these indoor spaces, air quality is just one thing. There's a number of different metrics that you might want to correlate, right? See, you know how densely occupied spaces what what the cleaning regimen is. You know, there's all sorts of interesting questions about decibels and lumens. How much of that do you get into and.    James Matthews [00:09:00] Carbon intelligence. We are predominantly focused on indoor air quality, although clients do want to look at implementing the standard, we will walk them through everything that is required of them and the wellbeing standards are quite flexible. So you can pick and choose certain metrics to to it to benefit your, your particular fit out of your building. And that's the benefit of it. It is flexible so you can choose what's kind of interesting to you and then we will walk them through all the different the ten different requirements as a part of the standard.    Micheal Moran [00:09:39] James, hold your thought. I'm going to take a quick break for our sponsor.    Sponsor [00:09:45] Michael sure is proud to support Manifest Density, the podcast that examines the intersection of COVID 19 business and society.

James is an expert in implementing indoor air quality. JAMES Indoor air quality is one thing from the standpoint of the person who runs the building or owns the building, but what about the people who occupy it? You must get questions about how much of this data should be shared with the staff of a corporate space, for instance, and what kind of issues that might raise.    James Matthews [00:10:53] It's a tricky one, I think. If you are the landlord and you have a problem, you might be inclined not to share that information. If you're a tenant, then you're obviously going to be interested in your indoor air quality. I think the benefit of the market of where we are is that the democracy of data or the ability to access data is relatively cheap and easy these days. People can get hold of that information relatively quickly. If you are a tenant, for example, there are certain monitors that have really good standards that are only a couple of hundred pounds that you could implement. And having that information is key. It's the old adage of you can't you can't change what you don't monitor. And it's getting getting your hands on that data, which is invaluable if you want to make improvements and change into your space.    Micheal Moran [00:11:47] There's still that ethical quandary. Joe, if you're the director of h.r. Or facilities management and you find you've got this data, it's not consistently good. Maybe it's good some days, not others are good in some spaces and not others. Do you democratize that data and show it to all the staff?    James Matthews [00:12:06] Yeah, it's a tricky one. I think you'd probably work with your facilities team and your landlord if you're a tenant or if you are the facilities manager working on behalf of the landlord, then you'd certainly use that data to drive improvements and look at ways to improve the space. I think obviously with people choosing to work from home and choosing to work in the office these days, you'll see a shift in occupation patterns as well. So typically you might see higher levels of been in poor indoor air quality on say, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday. If people are choosing to occupy the office more in that time, you could then set about strategies to improve the indoor air quality, potentially running the phone calls at a higher rate on those particular days, and then offset by saving a bit of energy and reducing the phone calls potentially on Wednesdays, sorry, on Mondays and Fridays when you have lower occupation.    Micheal Moran [00:13:07] You bring up a really good point. I think when people think of indoor air quality monitors, they think of something that looks like a smoke detector that just sits there and detects the air. But it's really affected by a lot of things. One of the most important is that the quickest way to get poor air in a room is to put a lot of people in and close the door. Right. Because we do nothing but emit carbon when we breathe. And if you're not, ventilating that occupancy data is key to correlate with the air quality, right?    James Matthews [00:13:38] Yeah, absolutely. Yeah. If you if you can marry the two, you've got a really powerful solution there.    Micheal Moran [00:13:45] Well, we've already taken two breaks for the sponsor, so I won't tell our married solution here. But I think that's the idea. And it's not just occupancy, but there's other things that that affect to temperature, humidity. How often do you run? To concern. I mean, you're working primarily in the UK, so it may be that it may not be as big an issue as it would be in places like Beijing or Mumbai. How often do you run into concern about particulate matter, the outdoor pollution penetrating the indoor space?    James Matthews [00:14:15] There's a lot of concern, I think in the UK this fall, especially in London where you have quite a high traffic density. There's been recent kind of unfortunate examples of where there was a child that died and it was linked back to poor air quality because the school was on a on a highway, on a big busy street. And it was it was proven that the not the sort of poor air quality that cars and trucks and everything that was emitting was was a was the root cause of, unfortunately, this child's death, which is awful. It is a concern. And I think probably pre-pandemic when people were traveling more, there was more concern. I think that I would imagine this is my educated guess is that there's probably slightly less of an issue at the moment with people traveling less. But it's certainly it is an issue. And you do see, especially in London in the summer, you do see a sort of foggy haze sometimes, but there's no winds or anything here.    Micheal Moran [00:15:24] In the United States. This is a I almost said burning issue. That would be a little bit of color. This is a huge issue in the American West where forest fires emit a lot of particulates into the air every year. Now, California, Colorado, where I live, there have been recent fires that made it unsafe to be in your house miles and miles from the actual event. I would imagine this is something we're going to see more of. And then, of course, you have cities like Beijing and Mumbai and industrial cities that burn coal.    James Matthews [00:15:55] It is going to be a fact of life for for the foreseeable future. In Europe we are phasing out diesel in the UK, in Europe we are phasing out diesel engines. I'm not sure if that's happening in the US as well. And there is is a huge increase in EV charging and drivers as well. So the future is getting better and it will slowly phase down. But I think that's a fair way to go here.    Micheal Moran [00:16:19] And we can certainly thank Mr. Putin for keeping the oil pumping, but prices are very attractive for oil producers now, so the incentives don't always work in the direction that we might want for clean air. If you were to want to follow James MATTHEWS in your work and or carbon intelligence into work, what would be the best way to do that?    James Matthews [00:16:41] I would visit carbon. See, that's a web page and you can get more information on everything that we do that and find me on LinkedIn.    Micheal Moran [00:16:50] James MATTHEWS James, I want to thank you again.    James Matthews [00:16:53] Thank you. A real pleasure to speak to you.    Micheal Moran [00:16:55] And that's it for this edition of Manifest Density. Thank you, James MATTHEWS, for being our guest today.

Tractor Supply Company has aligned its very aggressive sustainability targets with the Paris goals of cutting overall emissions by 50% by 2030 and to be carbon neutral by 2040, a decade before most companies that have set goals. Roian also dives into the complexities of recycling packaging and the materials, such as steel palettes used to deliver tractors, that the company uses.Retailers, as we've heard frequently on this show, are keystone influencers in the shape of a new sustainable economy.

Brilliant Planet plans cheap, gigaton-scale carbon capture using algae | New Atlas (01:08) Direct air carbon capture is currently far too costly – but this London company, Brilliant Planet, says it can do it at enormous scale for a tenth the price, using engineered algal blooms in ponds located near desert coastlinesGoals to de-acidify the ocean as well. Direct air capture will need to be part of the decarbonizing equation, and it'll need to be massively scalable, energy efficient and much, much cheaper than today's technology. The idea is to corral and harness the carbon-gobbling power of algae, replicating and maintaining the conditions that cause algal blooms in large, low-density outdoor ponds full of seawater.Algae is an inherently more efficient biological machine for carbon capture than trees or plants Its entire surface area is dedicated to photosynthesis and it doesn't waste resources creating trunks, roots or branches Another bonus is that it grows and proliferates extremely fast under the right conditions. Simplified process: Account for most of the energy this system requires A location is chosen, on flat desert land near a coast,  A team of bio-prospectors starts filtering through samples of thousands of local strains of algae, selecting the ones that best fits the location.  Thus, there are no introduced species, and the algae is already well adapted to the local climate and conditions. They set up a series of pumps, with which to bring seawater into a series of containers and ponds.  In these right conditions they would monitor, they can grow a lot of algae. It also can deacidify the seawater. CEO Adam Taylorm said: “For every unit of water that passes through the system we de-acidify the equivalent of 5.1 units back to pre-industrial pH levels." Taylor says the company's already identified a "short list" of about half a million square kilometers of suitably flat coastal desert land. Potential for about two gigatons – two billion tons – of carbon capture In other words, it could cancel out more than 5.5 percent of humanity's annual global CO2 emissions, offsetting about half the total emissions of today's road transport sector.  The company has tested its approach successfully in Oman, South Africa. Now they plan on moving to a large area, roughly 74 acres, in 2023. Musk's Starlink Internet Is Now Available in 32 Countries | CNET (07:14) SpaceX's Starlink satellite internet service has now rolled out to 32 countries, the company said Thursday. The hardware can ship "immediately" to areas where the service is available. Starlink is available in much of the US, Europe and New Zealand, in addition to chunks of Canada, Australia and South America. Many of the remaining countries and areas show availability coming in 2023. After a few years of launches, the company has amassed a constellation of more than 2,000 low Earth orbit satellites to provide satellite internet around the globe.   Plants Have Been Grown in Lunar Soil For The First Time Ever | Good News Network (09:29) Food has been grown in soil collected from the moon for the first time, paving the way for human migration across the solar system.It is a first step towards producing food and oxygen on the moon, or during space missions. This all relates to NASA's Artemis program which will lay the foundation for a sustained colony on the lunar surface.Using the moon to validate deep space systems and operations—before embarking on a manned voyage to Mars. Co-author Professor Rob Ferl, talked about the future missions and growing food in the lunar soil:“For future, longer space missions, we may use the moon as a hub or launching pad. It makes sense that we would want to use the soil that's already there to grow plants … So, what happens when you grow plants in lunar soil, something that is totally outside of a plant's evolutionary experience? What would plants do in a lunar greenhouse? Could we have lunar farmers?” This University of Florida team planted thale cress seeds in lunar soil picked up by the Apollo 11, 12, and 17 crews between 1969 and 1972.Added water, a cocktail of nutrients, and light, and watched the edible spring salad green flourish. A tiny ‘lunar garden' was created from just a few teaspoons of the prized dirt specially loaned from NASA. The horticulturalists weren't sure if they would sprout, but nearly all of them did. This discovery opens the door to “resource independence” from Earth.Makes missions more sustainable on the lunar surface knowing you can start the growing process and feel that into more growth. Co-author Prof Anna-Lisa Paul talks on what the plants had to go through to grow:“At the genetic level, the plants were pulling out the tools typically used to cope with stressors, such as salt and metals or oxidative stress. So we can infer the plants perceive the lunar soil environment as stressful … Ultimately, we would like to use the gene expression data to help address how we can ameliorate the stress responses to the level where plants – particularly crops – are able to grow in lunar soil with very little impact to their health.” Follow-up studies will build on these questions and more. For now, the researchers are celebrating.. Denmark is launching a huge trio of 15-MW offshore wind turbines  | Interesting Engineering (15:03) European Energy and Vestas, a wind turbine manufacturer, have greenlit the installation of the latter's flagship V236-15 MW offshore wind turbines in Denmark.Danish city of Frederikshavn "a focal point in the future of offshore wind technology", per a press release. The offshore wind turbines are planned to be built and operational by 2024, with further plans involving turning green power into green fuels that can help the maritime industry run on sustainable energy. Offshore wind energy is acquired by using the wind force produced on the high seas, where it reaches a greater and more consistent speed than on land due to the lack of obstructions. Erected on the seafloor Outfitted with cutting-edge technological advancements Vestas will design and build three of its newest offshore wind turbines at three of the five test spots presently being developed by European EnergyRoughly four kilometers off the coast Enabling Vestas to demonstrate the wind turbines' viability in an offshore environment Provide early know-how with installation methods and technician training Christian Gjerløv, Head of Offshore Wind Technology at Vestas, talked on the venture:“We are working on getting our flagship offshore wind turbine constructed here in Denmark and look forward to the joint efforts with European Energy to achieve the construction of the offshore wind turbines at the test site outside the city of Frederikshavn … The position will provide us with a unique opportunity to test the offshore wind turbines close to our factories and research facilities in Denmark prior to the serial production and export to the global market."    SkySpecs watches wind turbines from above, lands $80M led by Goldman Sachs | TechCrunch (19:20) The company,  SkySpecs, is using drones and AI to detect future equipment failures before they grind those giant turbine blades to a halt.Works with wind farms to monitor the health of turbine blades from above. Just locked down a fresh $80 million Series D funding round led by Goldman Sachs to expand its “geographic footprint” and software tools.  SkySpecs builds its hardware and software in house, and already claims to monitor the health of close to half of all turbine blades in North America.71,666 turbines in the U.S. alone Since it launched in 2012, the firm says its drones have inspected more than 300,000 blades across dozens of countries. SkySpecs' larger goal is to “help displace fossil fuel generation” by making renewables more efficient, per a statement from the firm.  Danny Ellis, CEO, SkySpecs, talks on renewables and his company:“Renewable energy is becoming a viable, attractive, and profitable energy source. In order to scale fast enough to meet the demand, the market needs experts and solutions to help them navigate the complexities of managing their assets. We help customers get the most out of the life of their assets by identifying solutions to their most complex problems … That's why we've developed a solution set that enables companies to manage and optimize their assets from the planning phase right through the full asset lifecycle, including predicting future failures, and prioritizing repairs in order to optimize their maintenance budgets.” SkySpecs is one among many drone businesses to focus on monitoring critical infrastructure.
