A Pulitzer Prize-winning, non-profit, non-partisan news organization dedicated to covering climate change, energy and the environment. With the natural gas fracking boom, plastics production is spreading in the Ohio River Valley. But at what cost to health and climate? MONACA, Pennsylvania — Along the banks of the Ohio River here, thousands of workers are assembling the region’s first ethane cracker plant. It’s a conspicuous symbol of a petrochemical and plastics future looming across the Appalachian region. More than 70 construction cranes tower over hundreds of acres where zinc was smelted for nearly a century. In a year or two, Shell Polymers, part of the global energy company Royal Dutch Shell, plans to turn what’s called “wet gas” into plastic pellets that can be used to make a myriad of products, from bottles to car parts. Two Asian companies could also announce any day that they plan to invest as much as $6 billion in a similar plant in Ohio. There’s a third plastics plant proposed for West Virginia. With little notice nationally, a new petrochemical and plastics manufacturing hub may be taking shape along 300 miles of the upper reaches...

The government has been accused of a “futile desperation to contain the cladding scandal” as it

The government has been accused of a “futile desperation to contain the cladding scandal” as it prepares to combine high-pressure laminate (HPL) material with non-combustible insulation in its forthcoming fire safety test. The long-awaited fire safety tests on a series of cladding materials are due to start soon, with the result of the HPL tests most anticipated. The result is likely to determine whether or not ministers launch a government-led programme to strip these cladding systems from the hundreds of high rises nationwide where they are installed. Inside Housing’s End Our Cladding Scandal campaign has called for action from the government to ensure the removal of unsafe cladding from private blocks. It has now emerged that the test, to be carried out by the insurance industry-linked Fire Protection Association, will combine Class B-rated HPL cladding panels with non-combustible Rockwool insulation. However, industry sources have told Inside Housing that up to 80% of HPL cladding systems on high rises use the far more combustible plastic foam insulation, while the majority of panels are a much lower fire standard of Class D. Steve Reed, a Labour MP whose written question re...

Made in Maine: Somerset Grist Mill in Skowhegan is another ‘Great Good Place’

Producing tons of finished grains for shipment all across New England, the Grist Mill also has a radio station, a yarn shop and a full sit-down restaurant with wood-fired pizza and beer from the grains milled on site. SKOWHEGAN —  Amber Lambke likes to think of the Somerset Grist Mill, its farmers market, cafe and associated businesses at the old county jail in downtown Skowhegan as a “Third Place,” a community destination that’s not home or work, but another place to gather. Based on the urban sociologist Ray Oldenburg’s “The Great Good Place,” Lambke says the concept of a third place comes from a need for networking, sharing ideas and resources and everyday social contacts that make for a great community to live in and visit. “There’s a concept that’s been written about called ‘Third Place’ and the idea is that your first place is your home and your second place is your work — third place in our communities are these places where people bump into each other and have conversations and you can exchange ideas and, the author would argue, they’re the foundation of a well functioning democracy,” Lambke said. The Grist Mill, with its Miller’s Table cafe, dry goods store, Happy Knit...

Some Common Knowledge and Industry Standards for Spirally Submerged Arc Welding

7, mechanical processing, the end face verticality, groove angle and blunt edge are accurately controlled. The spiral steel pipe is a spiral seam steel pipe which is different from seamless steel pipe, made of steel coiled coil as raw material, which is often heated and extruded, and welded by automatic double wire double-sided submerged arc welding process. The spiral steel pipe feeds the strip steel into the welded pipe unit. After rolling through multiple rolls, the strip is gradually rolled up to form a circular tube blank with an open gap. The reduction of the pressing roll is adjusted to control the weld gap in 1~ 3mm and make the ends of the solder joint flush.

The Mad Scientist team executed its 2019 Science Fiction Writing Contest to glean insights about the future fight with a near-peer competitor in 2030. We received 77 submissions from both within and outside of the DoD. This story was one of our semi-finalists and features a futuristic look at warfare and its featured technologies. Captain Sten Jensen, first lieutenants Lene Nielsen, Ole Mikkelsen and Steffen Pedersen are all sitting on their rolled up sleeping mats under a camouflaged tarp in the wet pine plantation. Between them on the forest floor the company’s only paper map is unfolded showing the 50 kilometers to the Otsovian border. All four are relaxed and in a light mood. The company and platoon orders have been given, regiven, changed, rehearsed, wargamed, changed again, rewargamed and re-rehearsed so many times that Viking Company’s O-group has stopped counting the many different missions and plans the company has had since they left the staging area in Denmark a week ago.
