Waiakea Water Launches a Degradable Bottle

Waiakea Hawaiian Volcanic Water was founded in 2012 by Ryan Emmons after he discovered that his family had access to one of the richest sources of pure and naturally healthy volcanic water.

Waiakea water is rich in minerals and electrolytes such as potassium, sodium, magnesium and calcium. It also has the perfect amount of silica in it.

Its packaging is done at a facility which uses 33% renewable energy. The bottles that the company uses, at the moment, are made with high-grade 100% recycled polyethylene terephthalate, which uses 85% less manufacturing energy compared to regular plastic bottles.

The company is scheduled to start using bottles that are fully degradable in the coming year. The bottles will be 100% recyclable and their lifespan will be less 98%, compared to ordinary plastic bottles. Scientists had to approach packaging from a whole new angle, using technology that has the potential of changing the entire CPG industry.

The bottle uses TimePlast, a one of a kind, and patented, additive which aids in the nano-degradation of plastic. It is said to reduce plastic’s lifespan from 1,200 years to approximately 15 years. Waiakea uses packaging made from recycled bottles and will be the first to use the additive on their bottles which, in my view, will go a long way in conserving our environment.

According to Emmons, the reason why this discovery was not made earlier is that most research done on polymers revolves around making plastics stronger and better. Also, the approach taken when it comes to dealing with plastic pollution is the biodegradable approach, which has borne no fruits. To create this new packaging, polymers had to be approached differently. They decided to turn the polymer into a carbon-based wax.

Regular plastic eventually degrades, but the process takes thousands of years. With the TimePlast additive, the plastic’s chemical bonds are replaced with less complicated ones, which results in a weaker plastic which has a shorter ecological footprint.

Creating a bottle that had similar properties as plastic was a big challenge and it took the company five years and 1,200 experiments. A pound of additive can be used on 1,000 pounds of plastic. The cost is extremely low and can easily be taken up by bottled beverage manufacturers.

While these are the majority of people that don’t get enough sleep, there are others who are unable to sleep well due to sleep disorders. One of the most common sleep disorders is sleep apnea.

Why Dangerous Prisons Need Securus Technologies November 4, 2017

Most people are completely unaware how dangerous the conditions are inside the local prisons for officers working each day. Not only are me and all my fellow officers significantly outnumbered, the inmates are getting frustrated due to overcrowding. Packed in cells like animals, these inmates feel they have to lash out at authority to get a point across. Rather than go to work and hope for the best, we have embraced technology and finally have the ability to take back control of the facility.

 

Securus Technologies is a company that manufactures call monitoring software now being used in thousands of prisons around the country. The technology is so advanced that it can scan calls the inmates are making and identify chatter concerning drugs, weapons, or anything contraband related that could be a problem in a jail.

 

The LBS software simply alerts officers who are able to take action long before that could become a potential treat to anyway trapped behind those jail walls each day. The mission of Securus Technologies is to make the world a safer place, something each of my fellow officers live by each day.

 

To help show how effective this technology can be in a crowded jail, we only need to look at a few instances that happened this week. An inmate was mentioning to his friends on the phone how his gang is planning to take down a rival member in the yard with weapons they made. That incident was taken care of before it happened. An inmate was bragging to his dad about doing drugs in his cell, we moved that inmate and confiscated his contraband.

 

There was even an instance where one inmate was telling his little sister how to hide drugs from officers so she could pass them to him when she came to the fail on visiting day.

Obsidian Energy Preparing For A Bright Future November 1, 2017

Obsidian Energy Ltd is a Canadian business that is working in the industry of oil and natural gas. The company has switched its name a few times. First, the company was  called Penn West Exploration Ltd. And the previous title was Penn West Energy Trust.

 

The business of Obsidian Energy Ltd was created by businessman Mr. David L. French. He is operating as the Chief executive officer of the company as well as its President. Obsidian Energy Ltd has been based in Calgary, Albert in Canada since its inception back in 1979. Up to date, the company has three hundred employees.

 

Like any other business, Obsidian Energy has also had its ups and downs. For some time, the company was one of the sixty biggest firms on the Toronto Stock Exchange, and from 2005 up to 2011, Obsidian Energy was also CANROY or Canadian Royal Trust. During that time Obsidian Energy reached its all-time peak in profits and in January 2006 it achieved a revenue of nearly ten billion dollars.

 

In 2014, however, the prices of crude oil fell significantly. That started some problematic times for Obsidian Energy, and so the business went through a sharp restructuring. The most substantial part of the assets of Obsidian Energy had to be sold off over the next couple of years in order to pay off the debts.

 

Up to date, Obsidian Energy has its fields of gas and oil located in the province of Alberta, Canada. They are located in the region of the Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin. It is among the wealthiest petroleum reserves on the planet. The production of the company is sourced from three primary areas which are the Peace Riviera oil sands, the Pembina Cardium, as well as the Alberta Viking. For the year of 2017, it is expected that the production will reach an average of about 31 000 bbl. a day. Visit This Web Page for more.

 

So far, Obsidian Energy Ltd has been gaining a lot of attention. The company is going strong with production as well as sales. Although the business has had some hard times along the way, Obsidian has set eyes towards the future of the company.
