Dem-Con Cos. upgrades an MSS Aladdin optical sorter with Cirrus PlasticMax technology at its Minnesota MRF.

Dem-Con Cos. upgrades an MSS Aladdin optical sorter with Cirrus PlasticMax technology at its Minnesota MRF. A Shakopee, Minnesota, material recovery facility (MRF) plans to salvage more bottles with fewer people by upgrading its optical sorter. Dem-Con Cos. provides a wide variety of services to the Twin Cities area, including commercial and residential single-stream recycling. By upgrading its original optical sorter for plastics, an Aladdin supplied by MSS, Nashville, Tennessee, with technologies from the company’s newer Cirrus PlasticMax, Dem-Con’s management team hopes to save more polyethylene terephthalate (PET) bottles from the landfill. “For us, one of our [top] challenges is labor,” Dem-Con President Bill Keegan says. “We have a 3 percent unemployment rate in Shakopee where we’re at. We really struggle to get enough people to [work] on the line. We’re able to minimize or reduce our manual labor requirements by doing this.” Felix Hottenstein, MSS sales director, says the upgrade, which involves replacing the Aladdin’s sensor head, sensor housing, control panel, air-ejector array and catcher hood, will result in more efficient sorting. The upgrade, which Dem-Con expects t...

Since the last reduction in the German feed-in tariff for medium-sized PV systems at the beginning

Since the last reduction in the German feed-in tariff for medium-sized PV systems at the beginning of April, not much has changed in terms of module prices. This is down to unchanged demand in the country – at least in the first days of April. What is more, any local lags in the market are outweighed by steadily rising demand throughout Europe. Schoolchildren and students all over the world have been taking to the streets on Fridays to protest the inaction of their parents’ and grandparents’ generations. Young people no longer want to accept the frivolous endangerment of their livelihoods on this planet. Facts about the causes and effects of the ongoing destruction of the environment have been known for decades, but beyond high-minded declarations no one has taken decisive action. Carbon emissions and the resulting rise in atmospheric temperatures, the littering of the world’s oceans, the extinction of species – it all continues unabated. What Greta Thunberg began with her “Skolstrejk För Klimatet” in August 2018, which the global public then became aware of after her impressive speech at COP24 in December, has now grown into a massive global movement, which operates under the n...

Will Theo Die In ‘A Million Little Things’? This Theory Is Too Much

A Million Little Things fans are pretty familiar with dark storylines. After all, the entire series began with the death of Jon Dixon (Ron Livingston), a beloved friend and relative to all the show’s main characters, so it’s always had a sad tone. But, even with that, the latest fan theory is a lot to handle. Some fans believe that Theo will die on A Million Little Things, and I honestly don’t know if I can take all that heartbreak. Tragedy is a big part of A Million Little Things. In addition to Jon’s death, the show has dealt with Gary (James Roday) and Maggie’s (Allison MIller) journeys through each of their cancer diagnoses and the loss of Maggie’s brother. But, some fans think that there’s more tragedy in store for the characters, and this time it’ll strike one of the youngest on the show. It seems like too much for even A Million Little Things for Eddie and Katherine’s little son Theo (Tristan Byon) to meet his fate, and yet some fans make a pretty convincing argument. One fan on Reddit said: It’s a known fact that Theo gets nosebleeds frequently. Nosebleeds can mean nothing and just be a common childhood ailment....

These devices work like a portable refrigerator, drawing power from AC or DC power (like the 12-volt plug in your car) to keep your food cool and dry. Ice is nice—until you do the math. For an ice chest to efficiently keep your perishables cool, you need twice the volume of ice as the volume of food and drink. That means, for most coolers, only a third of the available space can be used for supplies; the rest needs to be devoted to ice. Enter the electric cooler, which functions like a portable refrigerator or freezer that plugs into your car, a generator, or a large portable battery. These devices don’t need ice, so nearly the entire interior space can be used for your comestibles. I say “nearly” because you need to leave gaps between items so air can flow amongst the brisket and brewskis. Usually, the different shapes of the items naturally create enough space between themselves to let the cold air circulate. Both designs share the same off-grid problem: the coolant, whether ice or electricity, will run out at some point, ideally not before you’ve consumed all the food and drink or before the trip ends. My family and I recently tested a few ice coolers alongside some electric ...
