Shale oil “to boost world economy”

Oil and gas jobsThe BBC have reported that Shale oil production could boost the world economy by up to $2.7tn (£1.7tn) by 2035, according to a report.

The report said that the boost would be due to significantly lower oil prices as the world taps into the energy held in shale rock, cutting costs faced by businesses and consumers. Shale oil production could surge to 14 million barrels per day, or as much as 12% of total oil output from around 1 percent now.

Shale oil and gas have emerged as a viable way to boost energy supplies. However, there are concerns over the process by which the gas is extracted, known as fracking. It has been linked to minor earthquakes, and there are concerns about its impact on the environment.

Project to build ‘giant’ wind turbines will create 100’s of environmental jobs

AEnvironmental Jobss reported by the BBC, UK and Irish ministers will today sign an agreement that will mean the some of the world’s largest wind turbines built across the Irish midlands.

According to this proposed agreement hundreds of wind turbines will be erected across the boggy midlands of Ireland. The power generated would be transferred to the UK via undersea cables that would join the grid at two points in Wales. These turbines will be 180 meters tall and they will generate energy for millions of UK homes from 2017.

The developers of the project say that thousands of renewable energy jobs and environmental jobs will be created in Ireland and the economy as a whole will benefit.

Scientists get £4m to develop ‘designer bacteria’

As reported by Pharma Express, scientists at the University of Glasgow have received £4m from the UK Government to help them develop ‘designer bacteria’.

The Department for Business, Innovation and Skills has distributed funds through the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council with the overall aim of making the UK a world leader in research and application of synthetic biology.

The cash boost will be invested to help scientists and researchers in the Institute of Molecular, System and Cell Biology to develop tools for the production of useful strains of micro-organisms. The Glasgow scientists will use a family of enzymes called recombinases which act as molecular ‘scissors and glue’ for DNA. These will allow the researchers to cut the strands at precisely defined positions and ‘paste’ a new sequence into the gap. The researchers will also use the technology to ‘teach’ cells to count and keep a record of the number they have counted up to in their DNA.

The £4m for the project, which is being led by Prof Stark and his colleagues Dr Sean Colloms and Dr Susan Rosser, will also fund researchers at Aberdeen, York and Nottingham Universities.

David Willetts, Minister for Universities and Science, said, “Synthetic biology could provide solutions to the global challenges we face and offers significant growth opportunities in a range of important sectors from health to energy. However, the commercialisation of basic science is largely untapped. This investment will help to ensure that academics and industry can realise its full potential.”

New £3.8 million research deal announced

As reported by The Pharma Times, Pfizer and Ziarco, a UK biotech firm, have announced a £3.8 million research deal to focus on anti-inflammatory and anti-allergic medicines.

Ziarco was set up by Mike Yeadon, former chief scientist at Pfizer, along with three other ex-Pfizer employees. Originally set up in Canterbury, Ziarco is a clinical stage biotechnology company which focuses on inflammatory and allergic diseases.

The start up has proven extremely successful and has so far secured licences to several anti-allergy and inflammation drug candidates from Pfizer and has confirmed £3.75 million of a £16.8 million Series A round of financing from lead investor Biotechnology Value Fund and Pfizer Venture Investments.

Ziarco has now entered into an agreement with Pfizer for the exclusive worldwide rights to commercialise a portfolio of clinical, pre-clinical and research anti-inflammatory and anti-allergic assets. Pfizer will receive equity and Ziarco will use the proceeds to invest in the further research and development.

Dr Mike Yeadon, chief executive of Ziarco, said: “Ziarco was founded to address the significant need that still exists for new, more effective ways to treat disorders underpinned by inflammatory and allergic pathobiology. Each programme in development at Ziarco has the potential to be a first-in-class therapeutic and because they target critical points within inflammatory and allergic pathways they offer treatment options for diverse and difficult to manage diseases.

“Not only are we very fortunate at such an early stage in the company’s development to have licensed significant assets from Pfizer and secured funding from Biotechnology Venture Fund and Pfizer Venture Investments to progress development of these innovative therapeutic agents, but we have in place a highly experienced team which has deep knowledge of these programmes and has the passion and expertise to deliver.”
