THE ENVIRONMENTAL ASPECTS OF TURNING TO SOLAR ENERGY:
The sun is a huge source of energy which has only recently been tapped into. It provides immense resources which can generate clean, non-polluting and sustainable electricity, thus resulting in no global warming emissions. In recent years, it was discovered that the power of the sun can be collected and stored, to be used on a global scale with the purpose of eventually replacing the conventional sources of energy. As the world is turning its focus to cleaner power, solar energy has seen a significant rise in importance.
California could make history as the first state to require retailers to offer digital receipts. The new mandate would not only save retailers money and keep customers organized, but it could also have a big benefit on the health of both Californians and the planet alike. ⠀
Paper receipts — which aren’t recyclable or compostable — use up to 10 million trees annually, consume 21 billion gallons of water to produce, and generate 686 million pounds of waste and 12 billion pounds of CO2. They’re also often coated with BPA or BPS, which are known to have detrimental effects on our health.

Masterbulk Testing Out Renewable Energy on Board Its Ships
The battery pack, manufactured by the Furukawa Battery Company, will form part of an Aquarius Marine Solar Power solution developed by technology company Eco Marine Power and it will be evaluated jointly with Masterbulk and ZEABORN Ship Management (Singapore) Pte. Ltd.
The battery pack comprises of class-approved UB-50-12 Valve Regulated Lead Acid (VRLA) batteries and marine-grade battery frame kit, and it was installed by the ship’s technical team with only remote support being required.
As explained by Eco Marine Power, UB-50-12 VRLA batteries are the ideal solution for smart grid, wind power and solar power applications. They have been described as safe, recyclable and long-lasting. “These hybrid batteries incorporate unique ultracapacitor technology and along with the larger capacity UB-1000, are suitable for use on ships, offshore platforms and land-based applications,” the company said.
Yasuhiro Kodaka, General Manager of International Sales at Furukawa Battery added that the long-life batteries offer a cost effective alternative to lithium-ion type batteries and are also relatively easier to install and maintain. “At the core of Masterbulk’s corporate sustainability policy is a focus on protecting the planet and exploring the use of renewable energy on our ships, as part of our strategy to further reduce emissions and fuel consumption,” Lars Modin, Chief Executive Officer at Masterbulk said.
The Singapore-flagged open hatch gantry crane vessel, built in 2010, is employed within the Saga Welco pool, a joint venture between Saga Ship Holding and Masterbulk.
Renewable energy projects are gaining momentum in the shipping industry as owners look to cut their carbon footprint and bring about a more sustainable future for the shipping industry in line with the industry’s commitment to halve greenhouse gas emissions in order to tackle climate change.
To that end, earlier this month, the world’s largest shipping company Maersk said that it aims to become a carbon neutral company by 2050.

🌎🛢 Für #ElonMusk ist klar, dass es nicht darum geht, ob wir die fossilen Brennstoffe hinter uns lassen wollen oder nicht. Es ist nur eine Frage der Zeit und dafür brauchen wir Lösungen.
