Yields on seawater are similar to conventional oilseeds under ideal conditions. SBRC research also found that the entire shrublike plant i. As reported in by Masdar researchers, while halophytes such as Salicornia bigelovii have the potential to produce biofuel feedstocks such as oils from its seeds and sugars from its biomass, the high salinity of the plant have challenged the existing methods for production of cellulosic biofuels. Laboratory experiments at Masdar Institute on removing the salt from the plant has led to some interesting findings. The liquid fraction obtained after pretreatment contains 2. Preliminary extractives analysis demonstrates that most of the salt can be removed by controlling two factors; firstly time of the initial washing and secondly, salinity of the water being used. The effect of temperature has also been studied during these experiments. These numbers indicate that S. Liquid fractions obtained in the pretreatment did not show inhibition towards Saccharomyces cerevisiae.

SCENAR (SKENAR) was designed in the mid-’80s by the brilliant Russian scientist Dr. Alexander Karasev for the Russian Space Research Program. It was intended to help the cosmonauts maintain their health while in space by jump-starting and dramatically accelerating the body’s natural healing processes.

Ginny Potter — The stadium is full and the noise is deafening. We await the arrival of both team’s mascots, who will put on a pre-match show. The Bulgarians, of course, bring their celebrated dancing troupe of Veelas, which constitutes a major reason for the team’s popularity, at least with men. Brazil’s Curupiras have already caused a great deal of mischief so far this tournament but are similarly popular, mostly with children.

In accountancy, depreciation refers to two aspects of the same concept: Businesses depreciate long-term assets for both tax and accounting purposes. The former affects the balance sheet of a business or entity, and the latter affects the net income that they report. Generally the cost is allocated, as depreciation expense, among the periods in which the asset is expected to be used. This expense is recognized by businesses for financial reporting and tax purposes. Methods of computing depreciation, and the periods over which assets are depreciated, may vary between asset types within the same business and may vary for tax purposes.
These may be specified by law or accounting standards, which may vary by country. There are several standard methods of computing depreciation expense, including fixed percentage, straight line, and declining balance methods. Depreciation expense generally begins when the asset is placed in service. For example, a depreciation expense of per year for five years may be recognized for an asset costing

As it turned out, South Korea would have had to win by three goals to go through and that never seemed likely even before Jan Vertonghen followed in to score after the goalkeeper, Kim Seung-gyu, had beaten away a drive from the prodigious year-old forward Divock Origi. There had been suggestions that Wilmots felt that Januzaj was lacking a little intensity in training, and this was not the most auspicious debut. He was withdrawn to not great fanfare, or surprise, for Nacer Chadli just before the hour.

The tournament was won by the German national team, which beat the squad from Argentina in extra time with a score of A total of 32 teams competed in the 20th edition of the biggest international soccer tournament in the world. Brazilian squads have won the most World Cups so far, winning the tournament five times. At all World Cups combined, including the edition, a total of 2, goals have been scored. The average attendance in World Cup history stands at 45 thousand.
Almost 38 million spectators have watched a World Cup game live at a stadium in total. This includes expenditure for stadium construction and renovation, urban mobility projects, upgrades at airports, public security and military defence forces, port infrastructure, telecommunications networks and services, complimentary work for Confederations Cup and tourism infrastructure projects. The 64 games of the World Cup in were played at 12 different stadiums across Brazil.

The development of decentralised solar hybrid power stations offers new opportunities to improve rural access to electricity. If the benefits of solar are harnessed, the terms of access and quality of electricity supply can almost match national grids: hour availability with high power handling capability.
My cat used to drink from the garden pond and never seemed to suffer any ill effects, and you often see dogs drinking from muddy puddles. So why do humans have to be so careful and only drink clean water? Will it form sediment that gets buried beneath the seabed and eventually turns into plastic “oil” or “coal”? I had previously suspected that some tadpoles are late undergoing metamorphosis, but this one really missed the boat. Is this a recognised phenomenon, and what is the explanation?
Is there an accepted ratio or does it vary, and if so by how much? Does this mean there would have been three sets of chicken twins? But are plants included in this universal common ancestor?

News from World Bioenergy World Bioenergy — three days with the spotlight on bioenergy World Bioenergy is the leading global meeting place for everyone in the bioenergy sector — a focal point that is so much more than a trade fair. World Bioenergy is held every second year and is celebrating its tenth anniversary this year.
World Bioenergy is the event that is equally a trade fair for products and services and a conference with active participation. The extensive conference programme is closely tied to both practically oriented field trips and problem-solving workshops where participants contribute know-how based on their own experiences. Professionals from the energy sector are not the only visitors to World Bioenergy. Another large category of visitors is the forest industry, with its great bioenergy potential both for the efficient use of by-products and for dedicated energy production.
Other large visitor groups are technology suppliers, the transport sector and traditional industry. Sweden a major bioenergy player Sweden is a global leader in bioenergy. Bioenergy overtook fossil products as early as Sweden is also far advanced in Europe in terms of all types of renewable energy with no less than 51 percent, and has thereby surpassed the 50 percent target set by the Swedish government to be reached by

The Nordic forest-based sector in the bioeconomy Coordinator: Also IPCC emphasises the large potentials for the forest-based sector to mitigate climate change by sequestering carbon and providing renewable materials and energy IPCC, Important aspects of the bioeconomy include economic growth and employment, reduced fossil fuel dependency and improved economic and environmental sustainability of primary production and processing industries.
In the Nordic forest sector, the bioeconomy may imply changes in technology, policies and business models contributing to economic developments, reductions in global emissions and improved resource efficiency Bygg21, , p. More specifically, the objectives of the CAR include establishing and strengthening interdisciplinary research and post-graduate education collaboration in the Nordic countries, initiating and applying for financial support for advanced joint research projects, and serving science-policy interaction and decision-making in forestry and the forest-based industries as well as with other stakeholders.
Bioeconomy — European Commission Bioeconomy is Europe’s response to key environmental challenges the world is facing already today. The world will witness increased competition for limited and finite natural resources. A growing global population will need a safe and secure food supply. And climate change will have an impact on primary production systems: We must move towards sustainable primary production and processing systems that can produce more food, fiber and other bio-based products with fewer inputs, less environmental impact and reduced greenhouse gas emissions.
More… The Bioeconomy to Designing a Policy Agenda begins with an evidence-based technology approach, focusing on biotechnology applications in primary production, health, and industry. Fictional scenarios to are included to encourage readers to reflect on the interplay between policy choices and technological advances in shaping the bioeconomy. Finally, the book explores policy options to support the social, environmental and economic benefits of a bioeconomy.
