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.

There are currently great hopes for solid-state batteries. They contain no liquid parts that could leak or catch fire. For this reason, they do not require cooling and are considered to be much safer, more reliable, and longer lasting than traditional lithium-ion batteries. Jülich scientists have now introduced a new concept that allows currents up to ten times greater during charging and discharging than previously described in the literature. The improvement was achieved by a “clever” choice of materials with a focus on consistently good compatibility. All components were made from phosphate compounds, which are well matched both chemically and mechanically.
The low current is considered one of the biggest hurdles in the development of solid-state batteries. It is the reason why the batteries take a relatively long...
