EC-Link Project Performed A Training Session On Solid Waste Management In Luoyang

EC-Link Project was called by Luoyang Municipality to perform a dedicated training on solid waste management. The meeting is to introduce the development of Solid Waste Management in Luoyang, to identify the fields for further cooperation between EC-LINK and Luoyang in Soil Waste Management sector.

Luoyang has developed a very efficient program meant to replace and recycle of any building materials coming from the demolition, to produce several building components as energy saving bricks and plasters, road screeds, artistic tiles and draining road pavements.

EC-Link project performed the training providing latest European experience in the management and reuse of construction waste; moreover, it was agreed to develop further cooperation in following areas:

  • Support to promote the introduction of new policies for Solid Waste Management related to building material (new rules addressing developers);
  • Researches to develop applications of high-grade recycled products and Solid Waste sorting technologies (e.g. infrared technologies for the recognition of materials and related separation);
  • PPP projects development, in cooperation with financial institutions.

EC-Link Project will also support the already existing willingness of Luoyang in establishing a network of stakeholders aimed to increase the recycling of building materials coming from demolitions and the productions of primary row recycled products/energy saving construction materials/finishing materials (e.g. tiles and roof tiles), to promote their market and to support the creation of a proper regulatory framework to raise recycling strategy at municipal level (through more tight obligation imposed to developers).

EC-Link project and Luoyang Municipality, starting from this training session, expressed the willingness to start a meaningful cooperation to support the implementation of the various initiatives above all in terms of waste management and financial support through the involvement of international financial institutions.

Are We Back To Our Wasteful Ways Of Using Water?

Each one of us must respond urgently to the national water crisis. In Metro Manila, our complacency has been jolted twice already.

When water started flowing again after the first wave of the water shortage, we went back to our wasteful ways. We leave the tap open when cleaning our hands or washing our clothes.

Take note of the following: At least 55 people die every day from water-related causes; 300 out of our 1,500 municipalities are totally without water; and irrigation today provides only 50 percent of supply needs. There is simply not enough water available from our severely diminished water tables and sources.

In view of this, the Movement for Water Security (MWS) made eight recommendations for the government to implement immediately. These were submitted and discussed during the congressional water hearing on June 25, and at the Department of Agriculture (DA)-attached Philippine Council of Agriculture and Food Climate Change Committee meeting on June 26.

China's ‘Green’ Supersonic Passenger Jets That Could Cut Flight Times In Half Set To Take To Skies By 2035

China is targeting the launch of ‘green’ supersonic passenger jets in 2035 that could halve traditional flight times.

Supersonic aircraft can fly faster than the speed of sound and are usually reserved for research and military purposes.

Only two supersonic planes have been used for passenger flights; the famous Anglo-French Concorde from 1976 to 2003, retired due to rising costs and falling demand, and Russia’s Tupolev Tu-144, which flew 55 flights across one year from 1977-78.
