JLMD system® given thumbs up by Luxembourg seadogs

24.02.2005



The JLMD system® has received the backing of the Luxembourg shipping register. Anxious to maintain the quality of the fleet flying its flag, the country is officially supporting JLMD Ecologic Group by backing shipowners wishing to equip their ships with its oil recovery system. Moreover, JLMD Ecologic Group has just been awarded the "Florilège d’Or" (golden award) by the French Académie Nationale d’Encouragement à la Créativité Industrielle (National Academy for the Encouragement of Industrial Creativity).

At the launch of Luxembourg’s second JLMD system®-equipped ship, Mr Marc Glodt, Luxembourg’s Maritime Affairs Commissioner, met French company JLMD Ecologic Group. The company’s pre-installed system is the only one of its kind for recovering pollutants in tankers in the event of accidents. The Luxembourg maritime administration is asking shipowners flying the national flag to consider fitting this system and discussions are in progress with the Luxembourg Ministry of the Economy and Foreign Trade to draw up a procedure for promoting installation of the system.

Since marketing began in July 2004, JLMD Ecologic Group has had the wind in its sails: five ships are already equipped with the system and an international network of sales agents has been set up. The systems’s straightforward installation and low cost have led to a steep increase in orders and the company’s declared objective is to have installed 60 JLMD systems® by the end of 2005.



In addition to these promising developments, JLMD Ecologic Group has just been awarded the "Florilège d’Or" (golden award) by the French Académie Nationale d’Encouragement à la Créativité Industrielle (National Academy for the Encouragement of Industrial Creativity). The company is also a finalist in the highly prestigious Lloyd’s List Award 2005 and Seatrade Award 2005 in the "innovation" categories, with the prizes to be awarded on 24 February and 18 April 2005 respectively, in London.

Im Focus: Electron highway inside crystal

Physicists of the University of Würzburg have made an astonishing discovery in a specific type of topological insulators. The effect is due to the structure of the materials used. The researchers have now published their work in the journal Science.

Topological insulators are currently the hot topic in physics according to the newspaper Neue Zürcher Zeitung. Only a few weeks ago, their importance was...

Im Focus: Significantly more productivity in USP lasers

In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.

Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...

Mapping the interaction of a single atom with a single photon may inform design of quantum devices

Have you ever wondered how you see the world? Vision is about photons of light, which are packets of energy, interacting with the atoms or molecules in what...

Im Focus: Novel silicon etching technique crafts 3-D gradient refractive index micro-optics

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.

Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...

Im Focus: Quantum Particles Form Droplets

In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.

“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...
