Many are considering solar water pump systems as the national grid is becoming risky and expensive!

Renewable Water Harvesting & Pumping Solutions”

— Hannes Moolman

GEORGE, WESTERN CAPE, SOUTH AFRICA, November 19, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Water is on our priority list and the options of harvesting water is expanding daily. Solar energy is becoming more affordable and more efficient as technology is rapidly enhancing.

Many are considering solar water pump options as the national grid is becoming risky and expensive. Many farming communities are moving towards renewable water harvesting options due to product availability and price as solar pumping systems are becoming more affordable and available in Africa. A solar powered water pump compared with a conventional grid connected AC pump just makes more sense when considering the cost of electricity on the long run.

Using the sun power to pump water can greatly relieve the cost of electricity and ensure water availability in remote areas where there is urgent need.There are three different systems that can be installed when considering a solar pumping solutions;

• DC Solar Pumps
• DC to AC Solar Pumps
• Hybrid Solar Pumps (New technology)

How does a solar pump work?

The energy created by the sun, commonly referred to as solar power, can be utilised in several ways to convert the sun's rays into electricity. With the solar pump, solar energy is converted into electricity by ways of solar cells to power a DC or AC motor through a pump controller, pump inverter or VFD Drive. Solar pumps are widely used in boreholes, wells, swimming pools, dams, rivers, fountains and larger agricultural projects for irrigation and pivot applications.

Solar pumps operate by using the following main components. The solar array collects the sun’s UV rays and converts it into usable electricity. A pump controller or MPPT controller regulates the DC voltage for specialized DC pumps at specific voltages. These systems can also be fitted with an auxiliary AC input controller or panel for generator or grid connection when long pumping hours are needed, emergency situations or during prolonged cloudy days.

Solar pumps are an environmentally friendly and an energy/cost efficient way to pump water for a wide range of domestic and commercial purposes.

Solar pumps are in many cases self-contained pumping systems or combined with grid or a generator depending the priority and availability of options. A Solar pumping system is one of the greatest solutions to the electricity challenges in South Africa as it utilises the abundance of free energy which we have daily.

Solar pumps are easy to install and require virtually no maintenance, and they have a lifespan of roughly 20 years depending the quality and or brand. This means that after the initial set up costs their servicing costs are minimum should the water quality be at a good standard.

The variable flow rate of a solar pump is largely determined by the strength and position of the sun. You need to ensure that the specific solar water pump purchased meets the needs of your system and application as there are various models and ranges available for different depth’s and flow rates.

Another very important aspect is the submersible depth specification by the manufacturer as most of the solar DC pumps make use of oil cooled motors and is subject to atmospheric pressure limitations.

Tripple Hydro & Energy is a specialist company offering renewable water harvesting and pumping solutions in Sub-Sahara Africa. The company offers a wide range of solar water pumps South Africa and solar related products to choose from.

Biocoal Patents Ownership Transferred to Biomass Secure Power Inc.

Biocoal Patents Transferred to Biomass Secure Power Inc. Technology will be used in Natchitoches Plant.

Biomass Secure Power Inc. (OTCMKTS:BMSPF)

CHILLIWACK, BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA, November 15, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Biomass Secure Power Inc. Patents Ownership

Chilliwack British Columbia November 15, 2018, Biomass Secure Power Inc. (OTC Pinksheets: BMSPF). Biomass Secure Power Inc. (“BSP”) has received confirmation that all of the patents previously owned by River Basin Energy Inc. have been transferred into the name of BSP. The Patents are registered in in Belgium, Switzerland, Germany, Denmark, France, Great Briton, Netherlands and USA.

Ownership of the patents positions the Company to move forward with its plans to become a world leader in the production of Biocoal a torrefied wood product that is a replacement product that can be used to replace coal in a number of different industries.

Background: Governments around the world have been announcing plans to scale back or cease electrical power generation from coal. To meet the announced deadlines a number of existing plants must be converted to renewable fuels the next 5 years offering real opportunities for rapid growth. To meet this demand BSP has plans to rapidly roll out five plants by 2022, with a total production capacity of 5 million tonne per year. The modular design of the Natchitoches Plant lends itself to rapid deployment at other locations. This growth plan is being drawn up to fulfill requirements currently under discussion with several clients.

Biocoal has many advantages over white wood pellets: little or no CAPEX investment required to convert existing production assets, little stranded capital investment at the power generator, 30% more energy in each shipment reducing transportation costs. Biocoal is stabilized at the plant and can be stored outside and may be handled like coal. Biocoal avoids 95% of the CO2 emission that would be generated by the same quantity of fossil fuel. Operations at Natchitoches have a net beneficial effect on the local forest. For more information please go to our website: www.biomasssecurepower.com.

About the Company: Biomass Secure Power Inc. is incorporated in the Province of British Columbia and trades on the OTC Pinksheets under the symbol BMSPF. BSP is a development stage company that plans to build a plant in Natchitoches LA. Public filings and financial information for Biomass Secure Power Inc. can be found at www.sedar.com.

Patrick Brown Supported Lisa MacLeod

Patrick Brown makes comeback in Brampton

Patrick Brown writes in the book that he went out of his way to support Lisa MacLeod when she came forward with her mental health battle. He went against the advice of the PC Chair of Eastern Ontario”

— OPI Books

TORONTO, ON, CANADA, November 15, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Support for Lisa MacLeod on mental health

November 15, 2018

Patrick Brown writes in the book that he went out of his way to support Lisa MacLeod when she came forward with her mental health battle. He went against the advice of the PC Chair of the Easter Ontario region and party officials and disqualified MacLeod’s nomination challengers. He articulates in his book about the support and help he provided. We know she has not read the book and we would hope that the journalistic community will review the content and report on this aspect accurately and without bias.

As Ontarian’s may be aware Mr. Brown introduced the largest proposed public investment in combating mental health in the People’s Guarantee, something the current Government continues to support.

Dean Baxendale

From Page 105-106 of the book

There was a candidate, Goldie Ghamari, who was running against MacLeod in Ottawa for the nomination. So what did I do? I called Ghamari and told her that she could run in any other riding, but not against MacLeod. Period. I thought she’d beat MacLeod handily, so I intervened to protect her. Six months later, another candidate, Ottawa businessman Riven Zhang, decided to run for the nomination against MacLeod. He had a very big Chinese community behind him. Again, I went to MacLeod and told her not to worry about the nomination because I was protecting her.

Nelson Silberberg Exposes the Truth About the Growing Water Crisis

Activist and Chief Financial Officer Nelson Silberberg continuously dedicates his time to advocating about the Water Crisis.

MIAMI, FLORIDA, USA, November 14, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Imagine waking up and having to venture out so that your family could have access to water. Instead of turning on a sink, or shower, you must trudge through hot, dangerous terrain, simply to survive. The worst part is, the water you are spending a good portion of your day retrieving could be toxic. Freshwater is in short supply and the shortage of it makes living conditions unsanitary.

This is the sad, horrific reality that over 884 million people are currently faced with throughout the world. People in the United States and throughout developed portions of the world take their running water for granted. Having indoor plumbing, the ability to take a shower, or get a drink seems so basic. Yet, these pleasures that many do not think twice about are causing the death of men, women, and children throughout the world.
Growing Water Crisis

Water is essential to life. Nothing can survive without water. It might be hard for people who have never had to deal with a lack of water to understand. However, that seemingly endless supply of water running out of the sink is not limited. There is a Water Crisis draining the world of its supply of fresh water and it is getting worse.

Right now, this crisis affects contents that are considered underdeveloped. Yet, if those that have the responsibility to help the situation do not act, the situation will continue to spread. Once the world is no longer able to ignore the signs of the crisis, it will be too late.

That is why Nelson Silberberg and other advocates like him are working diligently to spread awareness of this terrible crisis. Silberberg has traveled to affected parts of the world. He has seen first-hand what a nightmare it is to not have access to fresh water. It is not only the drinking water that is affected. When there is not enough clean water, people are deprived of sanitary living conditions. They are subject to disease and do not have the immunity to fight it.

Help Conserve Water

People of every age, throughout every nation, have a responsibility to stop the Water Crisis. Those who are not yet affected by the repercussions are the only ones who can stop the growth the crisis. Everyone else is too busy trying to survive. Fortunately, not everyone must become a volunteer, or do anything directly to help fight the crisis. Instead, there are small, yet powerful actions that everyone needs to do, to conserve water. Here is a list of things you can do to help stop the growth of the Water Crisis:

Turn Off the Tap: Turn off the sink water in-between brushing your teeth or washing your hands. When the water is left on, an average of 5 gallons per minute is wasted, going down the drain.

Use the Car Wash: Instead of using the hose and wasting water, go to the car wash, where the water is recycled.

Take Shorter Showers: Try to hurry up in the shower, so that unused water is not being wasted.

Cool Water in the Refrigerator: Running water to get it cool can waste major amounts of water. Instead, fill a water bottle, or pitcher up and stick it in the refrigerator. That way, you are using all the water.

In summation, Nelson Silberberg is on a mission to help the people who are currently facing the Water Crisis. However, Silberberg and others like him are not only helping the people in underdeveloped countries. Despite all the advocating and all the assistance, the Water Crisis is only growing. If conservation efforts are not enacted, the fate of the entire world will fall victim to the Water Crisis.

GREATEST COLLECTION OF ONE-OFF WHISKIES SET TO RAISE HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS FOR CHARITY BATTLING PLASTIC POLLUTION

Whisky.auction, is to host a public sale of the most impressive selection of one-off bottles of whisky and rum for charities battling plastic pollution

These bottles are not merely rare, some of them are entirely unique; the distilleries and bottlers who have kindly created and donated fully support the work that Plastic Oceans undertakes.”

— Isabel Graham-Yooll, auction director for Whisky.Auction

LONDON, LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, November 14, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The auction is expected to raise upwards of £200,000 for Plastic Oceans, a charity dedicated to raising awareness of the impact that single-use plastic waste is having on our world’s oceans.

The exceptional collection of bottles were on show at The Whisky Show in London last weekend, where the show’s creator, The Whisky Exchange, is actively eliminating single-use plastic from the show. The selection of bottles were curated in partnership with The Whisky Exchange to mark the 10th edition of The Whisky Show and celebrate the show’s move towards plastic-free.

The auction itself will take place in November, with 9 out of 15 lots already confirmed as one-off bottles never to be repeated. Sensational whiskies from distilleries across Scotland sit alongside a magnum of the legendary Caroni rum from Trinidad and a 50 year old whisky from Japan’s highly sought-after Karuizawa distillery – one of the oldest ever releases from this iconic producer.

Highlights include (full list in appendix):

The Balvenie 1973 Vintage Cask. Bottle number 1 of 1. A limited edition single malt Scotch whisky, bottled from a single cask from a single vintage.

Ardbeg 37 Year Old. Bottle number 1 of 1.
A stunning whisky, and one of the only one-off bottlings Ardbeg have ever produced in their history.
Brora 35 Year Old. Bottle number 1 of 1. A cult closed distillery that has rarely released a single cask bottling, let alone 1 of 1.

Karuizawa 50 Year Old. Bottle number 1 of 2. From closed Japanese distillery Karuizawa and has the potential to set a new auction record for Japanese whisky.
O.F.C 1990. One of only 63 bottles and the first to ever arrive in the UK.

With so many of these entirely unique bottles never to be repeated, it is expected that the auction could fetch upwards of £200,000. Higher estimates predict the auction could reach over £300,000, with the possibility of the Karuizawa alone could raising as much as £200,000 and potentially setting a record for the most expensive Japanese whisky ever sold. The auction itself will open on 18th November and will end on 27th November 2018.

All profits from the auction will be donated to non-profit organisation Plastic Oceans who will utilise the proceeds to expand its awareness initiatives, with a goal of reaching another billion people by 2020. It will develop films and other content that will target school children, policy awareness, and consumer behaviour – all with the goal of educating, inspiring, and fostering change.

Isabel Graham-Yooll, auction director for Whisky.Auction, comments: “Every now and then an auction line-up comes along that has spirits collectors and connoisseurs on the edge of their seats with excitement. This is one of those auctions. These bottles are not merely rare, some of them are entirely unique; they have never been seen before and may never be seen again. The distilleries and bottlers who have kindly created and donated these lots fully support the work that Plastic Oceans undertakes and were committed to helping us raise as much money as possible for this cause. It is difficult to put into words just how remarkable these bottles are, and we’re really hoping that is reflected in their final hammer prices.”

Julie Andersen, Global Executive Director for Plastic Oceans, said: “We are honoured to be the beneficiary of the auction and very excited to see the programmes being implemented by the organisers to reduce their single-use plastic footprint at their events. It's yet another example of an industry recognising the problem and being part of the solution.”
Interested parties can register their interest at https://whisky.auction/charity/plasticoceans or view the bottles at the Whisky Show in London, www.whiskyshow.com.
