Degraded land reclamation project in pastoral environment
Company Name Ministry of Animal and Fisheries Resources (MAH)
Funded By 66
Country Burkina Faso , Western Africa
Project Value 5 Million
Project Detail

The BKF / 024 project is consistent with the priority orientations of the 3rd Indicative Cooperation Program (ICP) between Burkina Faso and Luxembourg, which identifies the sustainable management of natural resources as a sector of concentration. In line with the support of ICP II, it aims to reduce the vulnerability of livestock stakeholders to climate shocks, and to reduce and fragment grazing areas through the implementation of pastoral resource restoration activities. The scaling up of restoration actions, in a logic ensuring the management of herd mobility, is one of the conditions of their sustainability. Similarly, their promotion by women and the poorest is a factor to promote. Finally, the carbon market offers an opportunity to ensure the sustainability of the conservation and preservation of reclaimed land over the medium to long term. The specific objective of the project is aligned with the strategic objective of the Ministry of Animal and Fisheries Resources (MAH) Budget Program 081. This program aims to "create a secure and sustainable environment for sustainable production" and the two project results are aligned with actions 1 and 2 of this program: R1 "Secure pastoral areas are created"; R2 "The created pastoral spaces are operationalized". The project provides for the restoration and securing, through the development of 15 land charters, of 10,800 hectares (ha) of pastoral areas in addition to the 8,500 ha of the previous phase, the marking of 60 kilometers of trails livestock and rest areas, the creation of 10 water points, the valorization of sites restored by mowing and conservation of hay, the development of income-generating activities related to small livestock and the sale of carbon credits. The expected effects are increased functional pastoral areas, securing pastoral activities and the reduction of conflicts between farmers and pastoralists, improved representation of women in local bodies, extending the livestock feeding duration in village lands and improving the coverage of livestock feed requirements, as well as improving the incomes of women and the poor for the activities promoted. The project will operate in seven provinces in the Sahel, North and North Center regions, out of a total of 22 communes. The direct beneficiaries and main actors are the pastoralists and agro-pastoralists, the populations having the right to restored pastoral areas, with particular attention for women, the young and the poor, the local authorities and their land commissions, the MRAH and the Ministry Environment, Green Economy and Climate Change, NGOs and contractualized development associations. The security context of the region and the impact of climate change on pastoral resources are the main threats to the implementation of the project, which is expected to start in the second half of 2018.

Multi-band optical coherence tomography platform for the development of novel atopic dermatitis treatments.

Project Value 1 Million
Project Detail

Atopic dermatitis (AD - also known as eczema) is a skin disease that is greatly underestimated both in its prevalence and in its negative effects both on sufferers. The physical sensation of trying to sleep whilst experiencing a severe eczema "flare" has been likened to putting on a wet-suit that is stuffed with stinging nettles, zipping it up and then lying down to try to sleep. AD first affects the very young, with symptoms often appearing in the first 6 months of life and persisting through school years. Having open, weeping sores on the skin can cause children to have serious emotional problems at school and the lack of sleep from severe nighttime itching leaves children exhausted, unable to concentrate and thus unable to keep up. In severe attempted suicide is not uncommon, even in children under 10 years of age. The burden on carers is similar to that from children who need e.g. to be fed through a tube at home. Yet AD is a very common condition, affecting up to 30% of children in the UK and up to 10% of all adults. The UK has one of the highest rates of AD in the world and the disease is the commonest reason for consulting a GP about a skin complaint. AD is a "disease of the modern world": rates of AD have increased dramatically since the 1940s, suggesting that an increase in external irritants is a major factor. AD belongs with asthma and hay fever in being primarily an "allergic" reaction. The financial burden of AD on the health service arises because it is the first step along the "atopic march", where a child with AD very often progresses on to one of these other conditions. Despite its potential severity and high prevalence, AD has been neglected as a priority for developing treatments. The most commonly prescribed treatments (moisturizing creams and steroid creams) are over 50 years old. Steroid creams are very effective for calming inflammation and itching but come with serious problems. Sufferers can become dependent on them (steroid addiction) but at the same time they gradually damage the skin ("skin thinning"). Many carers suffer from "steroid phobia" and under-treat children; this causes AD flares to be poorly controlled which then requires even more steroid cream to be used later. The last 5 years has seen this regretable situation begin to completely transform however. New treatments are being brought to market which control inflammation and itching with potentially far fewer side-effects than steroid creams. The companies developing these treatments urgently require objective tools that can assess the skin before, during and after use so that they can reliably measure how well the treatments suppress AD flares and avoid causing skin damage. During a previous EPSRC project we applied an emerging imaging tool, optical coherence tomography (OCT), to AD patients and normal volunteers and found it to be potentially an ideal tool for this purpose. Such was the interest in our work from major drug companies that we are actively collaborating with them to use existing OCT techniques to evaluate 3 new types of AD treatment. At the same time at Sheffield we have a unique collaboration between dermatologists and OCT engineers who can see even greater potential for more advanced OCT techniques to be applied. This HIPS project is a unique partnership between clinicians, engineers and drug companies which will develop cutting edge OCT tools and assess their effectiveness in assessing new AD treatments. The potential impact in healthcare is enormous because of the huge demand for these new treatments. If successful we will develop an advanced OCT scanner that can immediately be used to help in the clinical evaluation of new and emerging treatments for this highly distressing disease.

Caval Ridge Mine Project
Company Name Bowen Basin of Central Queensland
Funded By -
Country Australia , Oceania
Project Value 3,500 Billion
Project Detail

Developing the largest greenfield coal-mining complex in Australia Bechtel designed and built Caval Ridge, the largest greenfield coal-mining complex in Australia, for a joint venture of BHP Billiton and Mitsubishi Development. Located in the Bowen Basin of Central Queensland, the complex produces hard export metallurgical coal for use as coke in steel mills in China, India, and elsewhere. The mines initial production capacity was expected to be 5.5 million metric tons per year, and the project achieved world-class safety, environment, and health standards. Coal from Caval Ridge, and the JVs other properties (including Daunia, also built by Bechtel), is shipped out of the Hay Point terminal, which was recently expanded by Bechtel. Hay Point is roughly 150 miles (about 240 kilometers) northeast of Caval Ridge, just south of Mackay. The project included a coal mine, a coal-handling and preparation plant, and other facilities.

Hay Point Expansion Stage 3
Company Name Queensland’s Bowen Basin
Funded By -
Country Australia , Oceania
Project Value 2,450 Billion
Project Detail

Challenging project helps meet increased energy demand The third expansion of the Hay Point Coal Terminal dramatically increased throughput capacity at one of the worlds largest coal export facilities. Built by Bechtel for the BHP Billiton Mitsubishi Alliance (BMA), this challenging commission entailed constructing a new berth at the terminal, offshore and onshore construction, and land reclamation, as well as building and fitting out new trestles, conveyers, and ship loaders. Hay Point ships coal mined from Queensland’s Bowen Basin, which contains one of the world’s largest reserves of metallurgical coal. Bowen Basin coal is used mainly as a fuel for steel production and as a reducing agent in blast furnaces. The project increased annual throughput capacity from 44 million metric tons to some 55 million metric tons, thus helping BMA keep pace with increased mining production in the region and intensified international demand. INSIDE THE PROJECT The Hay Point terminal serves eight coal mines in central Queensland with an integrated rail-port network. The terminal has rail facilities for unloading coal from the mines, onshore stockpile yards, and offshore wharves. The offshore wharves are served by a conveyer system, supported on jetties that run out to sea and enable ship loading in deep water. The $2.45 billion expansion presented a number of construction challenges: Working under difficult conditions 1.2 miles (2 kilometers) offshore Reclaiming some 25 acres (more than 10 hectares) of land adjacent to the existing stockyard area Assembling offsite (due to limited space) new transfer towers, surge bins, and a ship loader Dredging in an environmentally sensitive manner to remove silt, clay, and hard rock to make way for the new berth

EQ Supreme is the cost-effective, ultra-thin silage stretch wrap able to completely eliminate feedlosses due to mould.
Company Name RAP FAST LIMITED
Funded By European union
Country Ireland , Northern Europe
Project Value 71,429
Project Detail

Since the introduction of the bale wrapping system in the mid 1980s, baled silage has become the handier and most common system to store silage and hay across Europe. Since then, silage stretch wrap has come a long way and now hundreds of millions bales are wrapped every summer in the EU. EQ Supreme by RapFast is the next major advance in this on-going evolution, employing the very latest polymers and film manufacturing technology. EQ Supreme is the first stretch wrap to completely exclude the air, so lactic acid fermentation can take place within the bale, leaving a feed rich in vitamins and carotene. While preserving the nutritional value of the ensiled crop, EQ Supreme’s superior air barrier completely eliminates the spoilage, reducing storage losses. In order to provide the ideal ensiling environment silage stretch films need to offer a number of important elements such as strength, puncture and tear resistance, elasticity, UV stability and the ability to cling in all circumstances. If just one of these features is missing a film will not perform effectively. EQ Supreme optimises these elements to provide the best collective performance, while reducing the film profile thickness. Only 18 µm thick, EQ Supreme is robust enough to withstand the rigorous handling of modern, complex wrapping machinery. Finally, EQ Supreme is specifically designed not to neck down (width reduction) when applied to the bale. This is very unlike traditional stretch films, which can have up to a 25% width reduction, meaning that the bale has to be wrapped with many more revolutions in order to achieve an acceptable wrapped bale. An extra cost that EQ Supreme definitely avoids.
