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: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.

The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Im Focus: Three Magnetic States for Each Hole

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".

Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
