Bid Could Create Thousands of Jobs in Runcorn

A science park in Runcorn is bidding to win Enterprise status and create thousands of jobs, reports runcornandwidnesworld.co.uk.

If the Daresbury Science and Innovation Park is granted this status, then it could generate up to 10,000 skilled jobs and lead to £150 million investment. Holton Council leader Clr Rob Polhill has said the status would “take Daresbury to the next level.”

Around 100 companies have offices, workshops and laboratories on the site, and the massive investment would mean that even more specialist office, lab and technical spaces would be developed. The site opened in 2006 and is a world class centre for cutting edge sciences and high-tech businesses.

Environmental Chemists on the Rise

Environmental chemists are much needed in most jobs, particularly in the pharmaceutical industry, reports ibnlive.com.

All industries need environmental officers to assess the effect the business has on the environment, and find ways to reduce that impact. The job essentially involves knowing the effects of chemicals (or whatever the business deals with) on the environment. For example, how can a pharmaceutical firm safely and effectively dispose of waste products or leftover stock?

Industries are taking a much more proactive role in environmental issues, so that the role of chemists is becoming prominent. Pharmaceutical, chemical and waste disposal industries all obviously need environmental chemists, but recently even IT firms are beginning to employ people to monitor their environmental impact. A solid grounding in chemistry is of great importance, and it is often recommended that those looking into such a role go on environmental courses.

Pfizer Separate Divisions to Allow Growth

Pharmaceutical company Pfizer’s decision to separate certain divisions could lead to a larger break up in order for further growth, including in employment, reports forbes.com.

The splitting of the animal health and baby formula businesses from the main company is the beginning of a process to unlock value within the company. Two other sectors will be kept in order to raise their value to $46 billion combined, though investors had hoped the company would split into five distinct divisions.

The two that have broken off were the obvious choices; the animal health business is worth nearly $4 billion so can stand on its own, and the nutrition side is the one that investors were most eager to see separate.

Though some investors may be disappointed that Pfizer hasn’t split all its divisions at once, it means that sectors that could not currently compete on their own have time to grow to the point where they can be world leaders in their own right, potentially creating a large number of jobs worldwide.

Is Motor Oil a Renewable Resource?

National Geographic News asked whether Motor oil could be a viable renewable source in their article Is motor oil a  renewable source – re finers say yes!

Currently tens of millions of barrels of lubricant pass through vehicle engines around the world each year, U.S. drivers alone produce about 1.3 billion gallons of dirty used motor oil annually. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates 200 million gallons (757,082 liters) is dumped illegally each year. Some is “recycled,” but with dubious environmental benefit it typically ends up burned as a rather dirty industrial fuel source

However the National Geographic article tells us that there is another option which is to use  motor oil as a renewable resource. It is possible to re-refine used motor oil, restoring it to “good as new” quality. Then it can be resold over and over again at about the same price per quart as conventional motor oil.

In Europe, about 50 percent of motor oil is re-refined, thanks to regulations dating to 1975 that were revised in 2008, say analysts at Kline & Company, a market research firm based in Parsippany, New Jersey.  In North America, only about 10 to 15 percent of motor oil is re-refined. But that story is slowly changing as U.S. companies have begun to see a new market in “green” lubricant.

Kevin Ferrick of API says re-refined oil is gaining some traction in the marketplace. “We don’t track sales of re-refined oil but I will say that there are definitely more and more brands coming online that are claiming some percentage of re-refined oil,” he said. “It’s interesting that some of these have been around for quite a few years now and some marketers chose not to make that claim of re-refined content.”

Because U.S. regulations did not require marketers to label virgin-equivalent products as re-refined, marketers didn’t broadcast they were selling recycled product, fearing consumer reluctance to use “old” oil. But now, companies are recognizing a marketing advantage. “I’d say that because of increased environmental consciousness there seems to have been a change in attitude towards it,” Ferrick said.

Re-refined motor oil even has a presence on the NASCAR circuit through partnership with Safety-Kleen, the largest motor oil re-refiner in the United States. Safety-Kleen not only services race teams, but it collects motor oil for re-refining at NASCAR racetracks and team shops—some 185,000 gallons (700,300 liters) in 2010 alone.

Apparently it takes only about one-third of the amount of energy to recover re-refined base stock as it does to produce the same amount of base stock from crude oil, Using less energy means producing fewer carbon emissions. And the same oil can be re-refined over and over again said John Wesley CEO of Wichita, Kansas-based Universal Lubricants, producer of ECO ULTRA re-refined oils.

Kevin Ferrick of API said “If you’re concerned about the environment then by all means use re-refined oils,These oils are just fine for vehicles, as long as they are certified, and reusing something over and over again is always a good thing to do rather than wasting a valuable source”

Motor oil re-refining’s savings do add up over time, and the world’s total annual output of used motor oil is anything but trivial. That’s why, for many, a “closed-loop” system that puts the same oil back to work over and over again is a strong option.

Scientists find that mobile phones could increase brain cancer risk

As reported by Sky News, according to scientists at the World Health Organisation (WHO), the use of mobile phones could increase your chances of getting brain cancer.

The scientists have classified mobile devices as ‘possibly carcinogenic to humans’ and so have advised people to use their hands-free sets or text instead of calling. The scientists came to this classification after the discovery that the radiofrequency electromagnetic fields associated with handsets potentially heightened the chances of suffering glioma, a malignant form of the disease.

Institute of Cancer Research Scientists win Royal Society of Chemistry Award

As reported by Medical News Today, scientists at the Institute Cancer Research (ICR)  have received  an award from the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) for the discovery and clinical development of abiraterone, a prostate cancer treatment.

The development of this prostate cancer drug is of particular significance as it is one of only a hand full of drugs which have been found to extend the lives of men suffering with late-stage prostate cancer.

Abiraterone has recently received approval in the US for men suffering with metastatic prostate cancer whom were no longer responding to chemotherapy. European approval is also pending.

The RSC is the largest European organisation that focuses on advancing chemical sciences. Their President, David Phillips  stated the award was given  “in recognition of their exemplary teamwork and scientific innovation that took abiraterone from idea to successful multi-centre Phase III clinical trials for the treatment of prostate cancer.”

As globalisation gathers pace international cooperation in these areas has become even more important to boost Britain’s economic growth, and they are a key part of our overall relationship with the United States.”
