ZERMA a leading manufacturer of size reduction equipment is expanding its operations and sales network to the North American market.  ZERMA has established a sales and service operation outside of Chicago.
 
ZERMA has traditionally focused on the development and production of size reduction machinery for the plastics industry. However, today ZERMA has expanded into related industries such as tire recycling, e-waste, post-consumer waste and waste to energy applications. Our core strength lies as a machinery and component producer and we remain committed to the improvement and development of size reduction machinery. The ZERMA product consists of three main machine types: granulators, shredders, and pulverizers.
 
Our granulator product lines cover a full range of sizes and applications. We start from the slow speed, beside-the-press models of the GSL Series and the compact soundproofed granulators of the GSC Series. These machines are commonly used in injection, blow-molding, and extrusion applications. The large GSH Heavy Duty Granulators are also used in these applications, as well as high throughput operations and demanding post-consumer recycling.
 
Our second machine category is the ZERMA Single Shaft Shredders. Again, we are able to cover a wide range of applications. We offer the small ZBS Series for purgings, the ZSS and ZIS Series for general applications, and the ZXS Series to achieve high throughputs.
 
An important milestone was the development of the ZRS Pipe Shredder Series. These machines allow the processing of pipes with up to 1200 mm diameter and 6 m length without the need for pre-cutting. There is no comparable product available on the market today.
 
ZERMA also offers machines for specialized markets. This includes ZHM Series hammer-mills and GRF Series compact granulators fitted with roller feeding devices. The most recent addition to the ZERMA family of products is the ZTS Tire Shredding System. These machines are designed to process used car and truck tires. We offer complete systems to produce separated crumb or powder.
 
In order to better service our customers in different markets, we have established ZERMA-Europe, ZERMA-UK, ZERMA-Thailand, ZERMA-Latin America, ZERMA Australia, and finally ZERMA-America. These subsidiaries work with more than 100 agencies worldwide to ensure quick delivery, optimal service, and timely support. We call it the ZERMA family.
 
ZERMA’s North America operations will be centrally located in a 21,000 square foot facility in the Chicago area.   The facility will stock various machines and aftermarket parts as well as a material testing center.  The ZERMA–America operation is staffed by personnel knowledgeable in the size reduction industry.
 
Product, pricing and support are the key consideration when choosing a manufacturer’s equipment.  The ZERMA product line is the most comprehensive line in the size reduction industry. No competitor has the product breath and quality as ZERMA does in the areas of granulation and shredding.  ZERMA is truly “The Home of Size Reduction”.

Potential of Power Generation Utilizing Waste Kinetic Energy from Vehicles

Energy generation has seen significant development in recent years. This investigation describes a new technique for generating energy from the waste kinetic energy of the vehicles at low speed. A complete description of the system is presented including the general concept, configurations, mechanical design, and electrical system. The system based on the principle of drum rotation due to low movement or transportation of the vehicles driven at low speed at different places such as moles, hotels, universities entrance and fast meals gates. The results show that this new technology could provide an efficient and low cost method of generating electricity from vehicles and the generated electricity has been utilized for different types of applications and mainly for street lighting, domestic uses such as air conditioning, lighting, heating. Some major factors have been studied and practically designed and tested such as there is no possibility to failure or yielding of shaft under loading and the drum is more strength to bending and other forms of stress. It was found through this work that the generated electricity of system and under Jordanian climate conditions can be utilized for electrical and the vehicles waste kinetic energy is one of the renewable sources of energy which can be harnessed to generate electricity. This system depends on the vehicle’s weight, when the weight increase the rpm of the drum will increase. As the horizontal vehicle speed is increased the rotational speed of the drum will be increased. It was found that the effective rotational drum speed (n = 35 rpm) at which the system starts to charging. The friction between the tire and the drum increases when the vehicle weight increases. The reported results indicated that we need only about 10% of vehicle attractive effort to generating a sizable amount of electrical energy. Also, the testing results proven that the minimum effective vehicle’s speed is 20 Km/hr, this means that all of the vehicle going over the system can be harnesses to produce the energy. The suggested model will be able to generate energy may be economically feasible to use for a larger applications, and thus helps to reduce the costs of energy production. On the practical side we have been able to produce and store electrical energy using this model at minimum speed of 20 km/hr, and the system is considered simple to install, inexpensive compared with other sources, safe, and has no bad impacts on the environment. Also, the system can be modified and subjected to upgrading. The system total cost was found to be about US $900 and this is an extra motivation to use this system.

I don't see how you get energy from a moving vehicle without slowing the vehicle.  It could work in areas where cars are slowing, but using hybrid vehicles would do this more cost effectively.

China recognizes that future prosperity will come from renewable energy and electric cars.  And the government of China is investing in this future. Here in America, the Republican Party continues to dismantle what little incentives exist for these future technologies.  And the next generation of American workers and consumers will pay a high price for this Republican foolishness.

+Carolyn Luce Let me clarify. My point is that Unionized auto workers earned much higher wages (adjusted for inflation) in the 1970s and early 1980s before the arrival of Japanese cars and competition. And part of what drove down wages at GM is the decision by Toyota to establish their factories in non-union Southern States. Today the 'regular' pay may be similar between Toyota and GM in the United States, but GM workers earn a far lower rate of pay than they did before the arrival of Japanese competition. Toyota could have established unionized factories in the upper Midwest which would have kept wages higher for American workers, but they chose not to do this. 

And, as your article points out, GM pays far more benefits to its employees and retirees.  And these benefits represent money flowing into the middle class from GM. Not so much for Toyota.

utilizing renewable energy should not break your bank account
The coming electricity revolution will see conventional meters phased out in favor of "smart" meters to help create the smart grid. It should be a win-win for customers and the utilities -- but the utilities are getting greedy.

This is right in line with the way the primary thrust of green or renewable energy technology is setting up large scale solar or wind farms and such to supply existing corporate facilities. Small scale facilities designed for individual users seems to be a much more sustainable system to me.

Back to the Future: BP Energy Outlook 2035

Global demand for energy is expected to rise by 37% from 2013 to 2035, or by an average of 1.4%/year, due in large part to ongoing economic expansion in Asia, particularly in China and India, according to the latest BP Energy Outlook 2035. Demand for oil is projected to increase 0.8%/year to 2035, coming entirely from countries outside of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development. Oil consumption within OECD peaked in 2005 and by 2035 is expected to have fallen to levels not seen since 1986. China by 2035 is likely to have overtaken the US as the world’s largest single consumer of oil.

Retail Sustainability: Do Shoppers Even Care?
1) Approximately half of shoppers think sustainability is very important or extremely important.
2) Sustainability matters most to baby boomers, the wealthy, urbanites and women.
3) More than half of shoppers say they feel better about shopping venues that have sustainability initiatives. 
4) Nearly half of shoppers notice sustainability measures, particularly younger shoppers and those in urban settings.
5) Recycling is the most noticed sustainability measure. 
#Sustainability #Retail
Until recently, there was scant data to help owners understand whether shoppers even noticed the green features of retail buildings and, if so, whether those initiatives impacted their loyalty towards certain retail projects.

Better late than never. Now if we can just get a movement to decentralize the control and distribution systems, we might even become truly sustainable in the next generation.
