China Petroleum & Chemical Corporation (Sinopec) has announced the completion of the central unit of the Al-Zour refinery project in Kuwait.Claimed to be the largest refinery in the Middle East, the Al-Zour refinery is being developed by Kuwait Integrated Petroleum Industries Company (KIPIC), a subsidiary of state-owned Kuwait Petroleum Corporation (KPC).Launched in October 2015, the Al-Zour refinery will produce gasoline, diesel, and kerosene that adhere to the Euro 5 emission standards. It is expected to come on stream in 2020.Sinopec noted that around 500 companies from across 50 countries and regions participated in the Al-Zour refinery project.The Chinese energy company stated: “An emphasis on locally-sourced materials has created a boost to the manufacturing industries of Kuwait as well as the development of the local economy and providing a large number of employment opportunities.”Sinopec Luoyang Engineering is the Al-Zour refinery project’s general contractorSinopec Luoyang Engineering is serving as the general contractor for the refinery project, which also include the construction of the hydrodesulphurisation plant.To coordinate with global partners and share data to complete the 15 process production plants, Sinopec Luoyang Engineering has adopted an intelligent collaborative work system and utilised virtual designs.Al-Zour refinery project manager Usama Ali expects that Sinopec will continue to take part in further projects in Kuwait.Sinopec said in a statement: “Adhering to independent innovation, Sinopec owns a series of world-leading technologies and solutions in areas of oil refining, ethylene, aromatic hydrocarbon and more, as well as the capabilities to build 10Mt refineries, million-tonnage ethylene units and million-tonnage aromatic hydrocarbon units.”In November 2019, Sinopec and French company Air Liquide have commissioned two hydrogen stations in Shanghai, China.The two stations, named West Shanghai Petrol and Hydrogen Fueling Station and Anzhi Gas and Hydrogen Fueling Station, are claimed to be the first to provide combined commercial gas and hydrogen fuel services in China.

Submitted by SCJ AllianceVolunteers Jean and Amy spruce up the trim paint on the home chosen by Rebuilding Together’s partnership with SCJ Alliance.Few endeavors are as satisfying as encouraging hearts, providing hope and delivering assistance to grateful recipients. Our experience with Rebuilding Together has been one of the highlights of the year and a real opportunity to support the community and the valuable people in it.Rebuilding Together believes in a safe and healthy home for every person. To that end they rally volunteers and resources for home rehabilitation projects. They provide free maintenance and repairs to less-advantaged homeowners in Thurston County.The project assigned to the SCJ Alliance team involved upgrades to a local widow’s home in need of cosmetic and structural maintenance. And we couldn’t have had a more grateful recipient.At 8am more than a dozen SCJ volunteers arrived wearing their best Saturday morning yard-work clothes. Our team quickly downed the complimentary coffee and muffins, signed forms, donned our soon-to-be dirtied Rebuilding Together t-shirts and assembled for a quick outline of the day’s activities.It takes a special person to develop young volunteers into a fluid, efficient work force. Those of us who had included our children wondered how they would take to the experience. Rebuilding Together Project Coordinator Diane Springer did an outstanding job of not only organizing us, but making the three teenage boys feel welcomed and valued.Even the youngest volunteers were able to pitch in and help with the projectDiane introduced us to the owner, identified our skills, created work groups and assigned tasks. Soon power tools were humming, weed-eaters buzzing, bodies straining and team members laughing. From time-to-time, the delightful owner would insist we take a minute to eat a home-made sandwich or offer a vacuum, screwdriver or hammer.Flower beds soon appeared where they had been overgrown with grass and weeds. New fascia boards replaced decayed, barely hanging weathered trim. Bright red paint replaced flaking and absent color. Roof-lines were straightened and windows again slid open with ease. In the water damaged hallway, new lights and ceiling tiles were replaced.One by one, each of the tasks were completed. Around noon a final pressure washing gave the home a fresh, Spring-clean look. Mission accomplished! Rebuilding Together’s mission, that is, of bringing together volunteers and communities to help low income homeowners live in warmth, safety and independence.As we rolled up the gear, we could hear the boys talking fondly of the tasks they had been given and the people they worked with. They grinned as they surveyed the now transformed yard and house. “That was fun!,” they said. We all had to agree.What made it special? The volunteers, the people and especially the owner. Her gratitude was manifested in her constant smile and was emphasized in her parting comment as we drove away…. “Love you!”For information on how your team can have this experience, check out Rebuilding Together’s website, call 360-539-7830 or email [email protected] Facebook11Tweet0Pin0

Practical advice on composting toiletsDon’t get a small one. You know, the kind that’s an all-in-one unit that just sits on the floor in any bathroom. It has a small tray at the bottom that you slide out to remove the waste. I had some friends in Florida who had one, and they hated it. You have to empty it far too frequently, and it doesn’t really get enough mass to get the composting going. And unlike the one I had, they’re smelly. [Edited 23 May 2013: I may have rushed to judgement without enough data here. See the comments from Lloyd Alter and Bruce Lepper below.]Use compost starter. When you read the instructions for composting toilets, they tell you that you have to put some starter microbes in the tank to make the composting happen. They give you two choices: Buy their special starter or throw a shovelful of soil in the tank. We chose the latter and had a plague of little fungus gnats living in the tank. (I could write a whole article just about my battle with those annoying little critters.) I suspect that using the soil from outside was the source of our gnat problem.Consider a foam-flush or micro-flush toilet. Some people are squeamish about doing what comes natural into a tank where they can see that other people have also been doing what comes natural. Crazy, I know, but it’s true. These types of toilets also give you the flexibility to install the toilet in locations other than directly above the tank.In case you’re wondering, we went with the Phoenix composting toilet by Advanced Composting Systems in Whitefish, Montana. The owner had previously worked for Clivus Multrum, the big name in composting toilets. I was pleased with the design, sturdiness, and functionality of the toilet. It was also fairly easy to assemble and install (for someone who’s handy with tools and used to doing this kind of stuff, that is). I recommend checking out both of those brands.If you’re in the Atlanta area, you can check out the Clivus Multrum with a foam flush toilet at Southface Energy Institute’s Eco Office near downtown.Because the tank was so large and there were only two of us living in the house (for the first three years anyway), we didn’t have to empty the tank until it had been in use for four years. At that point, I wasn’t living in the house anymore but went back to help with the first removal of the compost in 2007.It was nice stuff! The Phoenix has two access doors, an upper one and a lower one, as well as two large axles that run the length of the tank, each with several tines. When you open the lower door, you can pull out all the old stuff from the bottom and the axles and tines keep the newer stuff from falling. Cool!Finally, for those of you who think these modern composting toilets are too fancy or expensive, I recommend The Humanure Handbook. I don’t think you’ll ever get their design approved by a building department, but it’s definitely low-tech and cheap. All you need is a 5-gallon bucket, a toilet seat, and some sawdust.

Collection and Use of UrineGBA Product Guide: Composting Toilet SystemsGBA Encyclopedia: Green Plumbing SystemsDo Low-Flow Toilets Really Work?Strategies: Consider composting toiletsNatural Building In NicaraguaQ&A: Experiences with grey-water and composting toilets? Ten years ago I was building a green home. It had passive solar features, was built out of structural insulated panels, sent all the greywater out to the back yard to water fruit trees, and was going to be super energy efficient. One feature above all others, though, captured people’s attention when I described the house to them — the composting toilet. The first reaction of many of them was:“Ooh. Won’t that stink?” OK, composting toilets are about a lot more than bathrooms that don’t stink. The main reason that people who consider themselves environmentalists install them is to prevent problems associated with waste treatment plants and septic tanks. In this age of “going local,” they keep the organic matter at home (unlike a sewer system) without polluting the ground water (unlike many septic tanks).But let’s skip over all the big picture, environmental stuff. If you’re considering a composting toilet, you want practical information, so here’s my advice to you, based on the three years I spent living in one … uh, I mean living in a house with one. Why bathrooms with composting toilets smell betterWe installed the kind of composting toilet with a large tank in the basement. The tank had a small fan that constantly exhausted air from the tank through the vent on the roof. So, whenever anyone went to the bathroom and … uh … did their business, the bathroom smelled better than before they went in there. The reason is that as soon as they opened the lid on the toilet, air from the bathroom was being pulled down through the toilet, into the basement tank, and then sent out through through the roof.A lot of people are down on negativity (Say NO to negativity!), but actually it’s a good thing when channeled properly. Negative pressure inside a composting toilet means you never have to worry about walking into a bathroom that’s had all the oxygen sucked out of the air (as I heard it described once).

India won the toss and elected to bat first against EnglandWelcome to the coverage of Day 1 of the 4th Test between India and England from the Old Trafford Cricket stadium in Manchester.SCORECARD England continued their dominance from the Ageas Bowl to claim honours on the opening day of this fourth Test. Early on, Jimmy and Broad let it rip to bundle out India for a paltry 152. Aaron and Bhuvi got rid of the visitors’ openers early but Ballance and Bell combined well in a steady 77-run association to avert an India-esque collapse. Bell, in particular, was in fine touch, unfurling his favourite back cuts and essaying lovely drives. Ballance was not as pretty as Bell but showed good application before Aaron pinned him lbw off the final over of the day. He hit speeds north of 140kph and hustled the batsmen for pace. Bhuvi got his inswing going while Ashwin failed to make an impact today. Pankaj got more than a few balls to skim past the outside edge but nothing more as lady luck continues to desert him. As it stands, England are just 39 runs in arrears. The hosts will look to bat big and follow the Ageas Bowl script. Can they? Or will India hit back to foil their plan?And, it’s STUMPS ON DAY 1!! With Ian Bell(45) and Chris Jordan(0) at the crease, England are currently at 113/3 after 35 overs.That’s a WICKET MAIDEN by Aaron!!Chris Jordan comes to the crease for England.34.3 overs: That’s OUT!!

The spinners shared 19 wickets between them and restricted the hosts to 298 and 203 but still went onto lose the game by 132 runs. The Indian batsmen were bowled out for 92 and 277, none of the batters made a significant contribution as only Ajit Wadekar scored 70 in the second innings.Though Woakes leaked some runs, Jordan, getting the nod ahead of Finn, hit the right lines and lengths in addition to generating steep bounce. Over to Cook and Robson now after the tea break. In the meantime, help yourself to part 19 of our description of India-England Tests in England.And that’s Tea as well. India have lost their 15th session in a row. Jimmy and Broad demonstrated a masterclass on swing and seam but they were helped by the India’s poor application. India’s innings was akin to lemmings off the cliff, committing suicide. Dhoni played the solo act, scoring a fighting fifty. He received decent support from Ashwin before the latter holed out to deep square leg. Then, Dhoni himself perished in pursuit of quick runs with the tail. advertisementThat’s a WICKET MAIDEN from Broad!!Bhuvneshwar Kumar, by popular choice India’s most successful batsmen in the series, comes to the crease.40.2 overs: That’s OUT!!

LUNCH: A belter of a session for England and an equally humiliating one for India. England got off to a dream start after taking four Indian wickets for a mere eight runs. Gautam Gambhir, who was in the spotlight for his highly-anticipated return, was at the crease for just seven balls. James Anderson was the baton bearer for England as his ferocious swing took out Murali Vijay and Virat Kohli in one over. Kohli has now been dismissed by Anderson three times in the series for a mere two runs. India were desperate for someone to stabilize the innings and Cheteshwar Pujara looked like a suitable candidate. But, not for long as Stuart Broad sent the Indian right-hander packing for a golden duck. MS Dhoni and Ajinkya Rahane tried to repair the innings with some counter-attacking strokes. But, Chris Jordan scalped Rahane right before lunch to unsettle the Indian innings. With the looks of it, England will be eager to get over with it but, the question remains as to how long the Indian tail manages to wag along. #IndvsEng #IndvsEndLive Pitch has got uneven bounce, we might see Ashwin and Jadeja Spin It, to Win It for India on Day 5 !! @BCCI Shashankraj Kodesia (@shashankrajau) August 7, 2014With Ravindra Jadeja(0) and MS Dhoni(25) at the crease, India are currently at 63/5 after 25 overs.Lunch!! 14th consecutive session won by England #indvseng Tarun Gamechanger (@tarun_0707) August 7, 2014That’s a WICKET MAIDEN from Jordan!!
