Rajendra Pachauri quits IPCC after sexual harassment complaintتنحي باتشوري عن رئاسة لجنة الامم المتحدة الحكومية الدولية لتغير المناخ
India’s Rajendra Pachauri stepped down as chair of the U.N. panel of climate scientists on Tuesday, ending 13 turbulent years in charge after allegations of sexual harassment, which he has denied. Pachauri, aged 74 and chairman of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) since 2002, pulled out of an IPCC meeting in Kenya this week after Indian police started an investigation into a sexual harassment complaint against him. He has denied the allegations, according to an Indian court order. Pachauri, whEarose second term as IPCC chair had been due to end in October 2015, has also suffered cardiac problems. In a letter to U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, Pachauri said that his inability to travel to Kenya showed he may be unable to ensure the “strong leadership and dedication of time and full attention by the chair” needed by the panel. “I have, therefore, taken the decision to step down from my position as chair of the IPCC some months before completion of my term,” he wrote. He collected the Nobel Peace Prize on behalf of the IPCC in 2007, when the panel shared the award with former U.S. Vice President Al Gore.<more>
Pachauri's Earlier controversies
Pachauri is controversial, despite his clear commitment to halting climate change. In 2010, he admitted that an 2007 IPCC report was wrong in claiming there was a “very high” chance of glaciers disappearing from the Himalayas by 2035. The incident nearly discredited the entire organization, yet Pachauri refused to issue an apology, saying, according to The Independent, “You can’t expect me to be personally responsible for every word in a 3,000-page report.” The report was also alleged to have cited magazine articles as reference documents <more>

India: major paint producers lead the way when it comes to going green
The lead content of all decorative paints sold and used has been strictly regulated in developed countries, including Western Europe and North America. However, Asian paint makers just recently started paying attention to toxic elements in their products. A recent market survey by IPEN revealed that lead concentration in all paints made by Kansai Nerolac, Asian Paint, ICI/AkzoNobel, Shalimar Paints and Berger Paints was found to be below 90 ppm. However, the survey also showed that the lead concentration in the paints manufactured by most of the unorganized sector players was far higher compared to the permitted limits. A study conducted in 2013 revealed that the explored economic effect of lead exposure in children on national economies in all low and middle income countries has an estimated total cumulative cost burden of $977 bn. A cumulative economic loss in Asia was $699.9 bn. Because of lead exposure to paints, India loses $236 bn/y. A voluntary standard that limits the lead content of decorative paints in India has been issued by the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS). The Indian authorities modified the standard from 1000 ppm to 90 ppm in early 2014.

Cleanup proposed for Ardsley's Akzo Nobel site
The former Akzo Nobel site in Ardsley is under review to clean up cancer-causing pollution.

Jefferson at Saw Mill River LLC wants to remediate 1 Lawrence St., the site of chemical manufacturing from 1938 until the late 2000s. The site is still owned by Akzo Nobel, which relocated to Putnam County.

The 10.8-acre property is empty except for former building slabs and foundations for the former chemical plant. The lot's soil and ground water are contaminated with various chemicals, including benzo(a)pyrene, PCB-aroclor 1254 and tetrachloroethylene (PCE).

All three chemicals are known to cause cancer in animals. According to the state Department of Environmental Conservation, the amounts of PCE and PCB in the ground exceed restricted residential standards.<more>

Powder Coating on MDF - a Technical Backgrounder
Over the last 30+ years, powder coating has revolutionized the finishing industry by providing a superior, durable, environmentally friendly finish - particularly for metal products such as appliances, automotive parts, sporting goods and countless other products. Powder coating is now the fastest growing finishing method in North America.
Now, a second powder coating revolution is underway. Technological advancements in powder coating materials and application and curing methods have brought the advantages of powder coating to heat sensitive substrates. Powder coating is now used on a variety of products that were thought impossible just a few years ago.<more>

PPG Debuts ENVIROCRON HTE High-transfer-efficiency Powder Coating
PPG Industries’ industrial coatings business has introduced ENVIROCRON® HTE (high-transfer-efficiency) powder coating, featuring a proprietary bisphenol A (BPA)-free polyester formulation that has a faster application build rate than traditional polyester coatings while providing more uniform coverage on complex parts and surfaces and reducing material waste.

Engineered for appliance, architectural, wire goods and extrusion applications, Envirocron HTE coating is engineered with an exclusive cross-link polymer that enables it to penetrate and apply evenly to metal parts and product assemblies with recessed cavities; odd shapes; and open, uneven or geometrically-complex surfaces such as refrigerator racks, patio tables, architectural components and other finished goods.

Envirocron HTE coating also can achieve first-pass transfer rates of 85 percent and better, which makes it ideal for spray-to-waste coatings applicators that want to reduce product loss.

Shelley Verdun, PPG powder product manager, industrial coatings, said Envirocron HTE coating is engineered to help applicators increase throughput, reduce waste and more readily achieve environmental compliance. “This product is unique among powder coatings because it enables applicators to achieve higher transfer-efficiency rates based on product chemistry rather than the application method, equipment or skill of the operator,” she explained. “Not only does that have the potential to improve the quality of the coating, it also can offer applicators a greater degree of control over cost and quality in their production processes.”<more>

The company has been operating in Apodaca for the past 24 years and the production from the adjacent powder coatings manufacturing facility is exported to many Latin American countries.<more>

Laser-Generated Surface Structures Create Extremely Water-Repellent Metals
ROCHESTER, NY - Scientists at the University of Rochester have used lasers to transform metals into extremely water repellent, or super-hydrophobic, materials without the need for temporary coatings.

Super-hydrophobic materials are desirable for a number of applications such as rust prevention, anti-icing, or even in sanitation uses. However, as Rochester’s Chunlei Guo explains, most current hydrophobic materials rely on chemical coatings.

In a paper published today in the Journal of Applied Physics, Guo and his colleague at the University’s Institute of Optics, Anatoliy Vorobyev, describe a powerful and precise laser-patterning technique that creates an intricate pattern of micro- and nanoscale structures to give the metals their new properties. This work builds on earlier research by the team in which they used a similar laser-patterning technique that turned metals black. Guo states that using this technique they can create multifunctional surfaces that are not only super-hydrophobic but also highly absorbent optically.<more>

Coated Tube
With antibiotic resistant microbes on the rise, plenty of researchers are looking into ways of thwarting the stubborn little devils. Scientists are working on everything, from air cocoons and electrical implants, to many other complicated alternatives. Now the most recent solution? A non-stick coating for medical devices.
The Harvard-developed coating isn't your standard Teflon. Instead it is a silicone polymer that is 'infused' with a silicone oil, a liquid so slippery that bacteria just slide off it, preventing the formation of dangerous biofilms, or mats of microorganisms. Biofilms can form on many different surfaces (think plaque on teeth) but when it forms on medical devices, they can cause serious infections.<more>

Expansion for 6th Leading International Trade Fair for Industrial Coating Technology from 19 through 22 April 2016 in Karlsruhe

Strong Demand for Booth Locations at PaintExpo 2016 and 2017

Oberboihingen, October 2014 – 18 months before the trade fair opens, more than 175 companies from 12 countries have already made firmbookings for their booth locations at PaintExpo 2016. As a result, approximately 50% of all exhibition floor space occupied at the event in 2014 has already been booked. The international trade fair for industrial coating technologies to be held in April 2017 due to the schedule change to the odd-numbered years is also right on course: roughly 80% of the companies have decided to participate both years. “Even we ourselves have been a bit surprised, and of course pleased with the strong demand for booth floor space at this early point in time. The fact that many companies have not only booked booth floor space for PaintExpo 2016, but rather for 2017 as well, is especially encouraging. As a result of the schedule change to the odd-numbered years, the leading international trade fair will take place after just one year in 2017”, explains

Jürgen Haußmann, managing director of event promoters FairFair GmbH. Practically all of the market and technology leaders from the various fields of industrial coating technologies are amongst the 175 companies who are already included in the exhibitor list. It’s no wonder that PaintExpo has established itself as the number one information and procurement platform  for users around the globe. This is also made apparent by the visitor numbers at PaintExpo 2014 which increased by 14.2% to a total of 9167. 26.6% of the expert visitors came from outside of Germany – from a total of 70 countries. “PaintExpo has evolved into the unequivocal meeting place for the industry sector. The audience has once again become more professional and international, and even more visitors have attended  PaintExpo. We’re already looking forward to PaintExpo 2016”, reports Martin Weidisch from marketing at J. Wagner GmbH – one of the companies who have already made firm bookings for floor space at the leading international trade fair in 2016, and are thus enjoying a full range of options with regard to booth location. Amongst other companies, this is also being taken advantage of by US manufacturer of UV-LED curing technology, Phoeson Technology Inc., as well as Lesta S.R.L. from Italy, who both participated at the leading trade fair for industrial coating technologies for the first time in 2014. 18 months before the trade fair opens, the companies who have already registered for PaintExpo 2016 will occupy roughly 6,300 square metres (67,812 sq. ft.) of floor space, which amounts to about 50% of all occupied floor space in 2014. And roughly  40% has already been firmly booked for PaintExpo 2017.

Market-Oriented, Representative, Forward-Looking Offerings
“We’re expecting further growth of visitor numbers once again in 2016”,says Jürgen Haußmann. This is indicative of the fact that users in various regions around the world are faced with different, but nevertheless generally increasing requirements. These include higher levels of quality and increased productivity, as well as more flexibility and sustainability. Beyond this, the use of new materials, for example lightweight components made of fibrous composite materials, as well as utilisation of various materials within a given finished product, are presenting in-house painting operations and coating job-shops with new challenges. This results in investment needs for in-house painting operations around the globe, because these requirements can only be fulfilled through the use of technical innovations. And these are presented by the exhibitors at PaintExpo in a diversity which is unparalleled anywhere else in the world, and cover the entire process sequence for liquid painting, powder  coating and coil coating. The exhibition programme encompasses liquid painting and powder coating systems, application systems and spray guns, liquid paints and powdered enamels, automation and conveyor technology, cleaning and pre-treatment, drying and curing, environmental technology, pneumatics, compressed air supply and exhaust purification,  water treatment, recycling and disposal, accessories, measuring and test technology, quality assurance, paint stripping, job-shop coating, services and technical literature. Beyond this, downstream process steps such as printing and packaging are covered as well. The same programme will be showcased at the 3rd trade fair for industrial coating technology in Istanbul, Turkey, from the 15th PaintExpo Eurasia, through the 17thmutually by FairFair GmbH and Artkim Fuarcilik.

Further information and a preliminary exhibitor list can be accessed at of October, 2015. The Turkish offshoot will be promoted

Parts cleaning: as clean as necessary, as efficient as possible– Increasing quality and efficiency with optimal cleaning solutions– parts2clean presents the latest technology and trendsStuttgart/Hannover, Germany. Cleaning parts and surfaces costs money – just how much money depends on the required result. Whether the job is simple degreasing or rather cleaning to meet strict technical requirements, achieving the necessary quality quickly, reliably and economically involves factors which go beyond the cleaning method used, including the selection of the proper cleaning media and containers and subjects like bath maintenance and packaging of the cleaned parts. You can explore all these aspects at parts2clean at the Stuttgart exhibition center from 9 to 11 June 2015.

“Whether we’re talking about the automotive industry and related suppliers, medical equipment, aeronautics, precision engineering, optics or electronics –today virtually every sector has strict requirements for component cleanliness, and this places significantly higher demands on cleaning,” says Olaf Daebler, in charge of the parts2clean show at Deutsche Messe. To play it safe, an “as-clean-as-possible” approach is frequently taken, which has an impact on cost and therefore on competitiveness. The remedy is to take a suitable cleaning approach that meets all requirements and to optimize cleaning results while reducing costs. “As the flagship trade fair for its sector, parts2clean presents a comprehensive scope of products and services that address every aspect of  industrial parts cleaning, from systems and media to bath maintenance, analytics for cleanliness control, corrosion prevention, protection and packaging,” explains Daebler.

Fine-tuning cleaning processes for reliability and efficiency Wet chemical cleaning processes are the method of choice for the majority of  industrial cleaning tasks. Here the dissolving capacity of the chosen cleaning media has a decisive impact on operating costs, quality and the stability of the cleaning process. The core principle that applies to media selection is “like dissolves like.” This means that solvents are normally used to remove oil- based (non-polar) contaminants such as cutting oils, grease and wax. Aqueous cleaners are generally used to remove water-based (polar) contaminants such as cooling and lubricating emulsions, polishing  compounds, additives, salts, abrasion and other solids. Modified alcohols with balanced oil- and water-solubility are able to remove both non-polar and polar contaminants.

There is no magic formula for matching cleaning processes or system and  process engineering to a particular scenario. They must be developed with a view to the overall manufacturing process. The following factors play a role:
What materials are being treated? At what point in production do the parts get contaminated, and with what? Must this contamination be removed immediately, e.g. to ensure proper results in the next processing step? Does processing involve a variety of materials that can lead to cleaning problems if  they are mixed? Does the cleaning of parts made of various materials such as aluminum, steel, titanium, carbide or ceramic create a risk of cross-contamination in the given facility? The answers to these questions can be used to arrive at a cleaning solution capable of optimizing both costs and results.
The parts basket or workpiece carrier also has a major impact on the cost and quality of the cleaning process. Effective filtration and separation systems such as oil separators, particle filters and membrane filters, as well as water treatment and in the case of solvents distillation capacity, also help to prolong bath service life and reduce disposal costs. For water-based media, continuous monitoring of cleaning agent concentration ensures that baths are not changed too quickly due to safety concerns, but instead only when  insufficient component cleanliness can lead to problems in subsequent process stages.

Component and surface cleaning know-how
As the only trade fair in the world focusing exclusively on industrial parts and  surface cleaning, parts2clean not only reflects today’s market in its entirety, but also offers lots of added value in terms of its parallel three-day forum. Lectures on a wide variety of industrial parts and surface cleaning topics will be simultaneously translated (German-English/English-German).

Deutsche Messe surface technology fairs : upcoming dates
The next surface technology fair in Germany is SurfaceTechnology at  HANNOVER MESSE from 13 to 17 April 2015. The next parts2clean is scheduled from 9 to 11 June 2015 in Stuttgart, Germany. O&S and parts2clean 2016 are planned to run from 31 May to 2 June. Upcoming fairs abroad with a surface technology component are SurfaceTreatment EURASIA  with a parts2clean pavilion from 12 to 15 February 2015 in Istanbul, Turkey, and also the very first Surface Technology NORTH AMERICA (parallel to IMTS) from 12 to 17 September 2016.
