Hydrogen fuel cell consortium seeking grant to drive transportation revolution, create 65,000 jobs in Ohio

Location of proposed hydrogen refueling stations listed in the grant application

Stark Area Regional Transit Authority, Love’s Travel Stops seek grant to build hydrogen fuel cell, electric, and CNG refueling facilities in Ohio and Michigan.

CANTON, OHIO, UNITED STATES, August 15, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Long a trailblazer in the development and deployment of vehicles powered by alternative fuels, the Stark Area Regional Transit Authority (SARTA) is leading a unique public-private partnership that will lead to the construction of at least 13 hydrogen, electric, and compressed natural gas (CNG) refueling facilities along highways in Ohio and Southern Michigan.

As a first step in the process, the SARTA-led consortium recently applied for a multi-million-dollar grant from the U.S. Department of Transportation. If approved the grant will provide the funds needed to take the project from an exciting vision shared by a variety of companies and agencies to a job-creating, pollution-reducing reality within five years. The grant application and supporting documents may be viewed at www.midwesthydrogen.org/

According to SARTA CEO Kirt Conrad, the consortium members, including Love’s Travel Stops, the Ohio Turnpike, CALSTART, Clean Fuels Ohio, Cleveland State University, and the Ohio Fuel Cell Coalition, will use the grant money to draft the Midwest States Alternative Fuel Transportation Corridor Action Plan. When completed, the plan will facilitate the creation of a corridor that will make it possible for the owners and operators of electric, fuel cell electric and CNG-powered automobiles, trucks, and buses to easily refuel as they travel across the major transportation arteries in Ohio and Michigan.

“It is universally recognized that the use of alternative fuel vehicles will stimulate economic development, spur domestic production of natural gas, slash our nation’s reliance on imported oil, and reduce emissions,” Mr. Conrad said. “But one factor is holding back what should be rapid growth in the industry: range anxiety.”

“Both commercial carriers and private individuals are reluctant to buy alternative fuel-powered vehicles because they aren’t sure they’ll be able to recharge or refuel them once they’re on the road,” he explained. “Creating the corridor we envision will relieve that anxiety and ignite sales which in turn will drive the creation of as many as 65,000 good-paying alternative fuel-related jobs in Ohio alone.”

Love Travel Stops’ involvement is key to the grant proposal and the long-range success of the project. If the grant application is approved, the privately-owned company, which operates more than 450 truck stops and convenience stores located along rural and urban highways in 41 states, will begin the design and planning process needed to add a mix of refueling and recharging technologies to its facilities along I-71, I-75, and I-80 in Ohio and Southern Michigan.
Mr. Conrad said the hundreds of millions of dollars being invested in R&D by General Motors, Honda, Toyota, Ford and other vehicle producers clearly indicate that electricity and CNG are the fuels of the future. “The only remaining barrier to massive growth in the hydrogen fuel cell-powered vehicle sector is the lack of refueling infrastructure. Once that barrier is overcome, a wave of change is going to wash across the transportation industry that will rival the transition from the horse and buggy to the automobile. Our goal is to ensure that Ohio is positioned to ride that wave for decades to come.”

Along with the members of the consortium applying for the grant, a diverse group of associations companies, and elected officials including the Ohio Oil and Gas Association, Air Products and Chemicals, Inc., the Renewable Hydrogen Fuel Cells Collaborative, Clean Fuels Michigan, Stark State College, Senators Sherrod Brown and Rob Portman as well as Congressmen Jim Renacci and Bob Gibbs have written to Transportation Secretary Elaine Chow urging her to approve the grant application.

“I and the other members of the consortium are gratified by the support we’ve received from so many outstanding groups, corporations, and community leaders,” Mr. Conrad said. “They, like us, recognize the nearly unlimited potential for growth in the alternative fuels and related industries. Together, we’re going to seize the opportunity to drive and benefit from the transportation revolution that is just around the corner.”

About the Grant Partners
SARTA, the transit authority serving Stark County, Ohio, is acquiring and deploying what will be the second largest fleet of hydrogen fuel cell buses operating in the United States. More than $10 million in two grants from the Federal Transit Administration’s Low or No Emission Vehicle Deployment Program and over $1 million in state funding enabled SARTA to acquire the buses and construct a hydrogen fueling station at the authority’s headquarters in Canton, Ohio.

Love’s Travel Stops maintains over 460 locations in 41 states. Love’s acquired Trillium, a CNG and renewable fuels infrastructure developer and facility operator in 2016. Trillium's focus includes the deployment of alternative fueling infrastructure, including hydrogen and electric vehicle charging. In conjunction with this project, Love’s will provide sites and resources for the planning and ultimate installation of at least 10 alternative refueling facilities.

CALSTART is North America’s leading advanced transportation technologies consortium. It is a fuel-neutral partnership-supported non-profit organization comprised of more than 190 firms and organizations. An effective catalyst for the global advanced transportation technology industry for two decades, CALSTART supports public-private partnerships and innovative funding and implementation strategies in the advanced transportation industry.

Clean Fuels Ohio is a state-wide, non-profit organization dedicated to strengthening Ohio’s economy while improving air quality and health, reducing environmental pollution, and enhancing our nation's energy security by promoting and encouraging the use of cleaner, domestic fuels, and efficient vehicles.

Ohio Fuel Cell Coalition is comprised of industry, academic, and government leaders who work collectively to strengthen Ohio’s fuel cell industry and transform the region into a global leader in fuel cell technology. The Coalition strives to advance the integration of a coordinated, robust fuel cell infrastructure and supply chain by supporting industry/academic partnerships devoted to R&D, advanced manufacturing, advanced materials technologies, components, and services.

Sahara Group: Providing Safe Spaces for Youth Empowerment

Zuriel Oduwole, one of the youngest filmmakers in the world appointed a Girl Child Advocate for Sahara Group

There’s just something about the word space. Young people guard and sometimes, deify it. Individuals, businesses & nations would give anything to safeguard it.

It's a good day for African girls where these projects will be executed & even better for girls around the world. After all, one empowered girl is a huge leap towards the emergence of a better world”

— Oluseyi Ojurongbe, Sahara Foundation Manager

LAGOS, LAGOS, NIGERIA, August 13, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — There’s just something about the word space. Everyone craves it. Young people guard and sometimes, deify it. Individuals, businesses, and nations would give anything to safeguard it. And when you add the word safe before it, a whole new meaning is formed. Perhaps one of the greatest challenges of today’s world is ensuring safe spaces. This is the focus of the 2018 International Youth Day Celebration.

Increasingly, we are witnessing young people engage more actively in issues that affect their future and wellbeing. For example, around the world, the #NotTooYoungToRun movement has gained momentum and even in countries where the voices of young people were hardly ever heard or given any importance, we are witnessing a new wave of recognition for the role of young people. In Nigeria, a bill reducing the age for holding or contesting for political office was recently passed. Now, young people can be voted into critical offices in the country which was hitherto impossible due to constitutional constraints. Today, there is a wave of young people contesting for various key offices ahead of the forthcoming elections in 2019.
While this is a big win for young people all around the world, such a win was only made possible because an enabling environment to have such conversations freely was created. These conversations are propelled by sundry sustainable development interventions and the social media. Youths now have a voice of their own, leading to an unprecedented wave of young leaders since the dawn of the 21st century.

Energy Giant, Sahara Group reiterates the need for the global collaboration towards providing opportunities and safe spaces for young people to pursue their aspirations. “As a leading international energy and infrastructure conglomerate, we are passionate about promoting youth empowerment, especially at our locations in over 38 countries across Africa, Middle East, Europe and Asia. We call it giving wings to aspirations,” says Bethel Obioma, the company’s head of corporate communications.

The Sahara workforce comprises 65 percent youth population, a unique collection of vibrant young men and women of who add incalculable value to the energy giant’s continuing growth. These young experts churn out innovative ideas from the sanctuary of the safe spaces that the organization provides – a work environment that celebrates diversity with zero tolerance for all manner of discrimination.

Recently, Sahara signed on Zuriel Oduwole, a 16-year-old girl education advocate as its ambassador. Working with Zuriel as Sahara’s Girl Child Education Ambassador, the partnership is expected to amplify the message of gender equality and access to quality education to world leaders as well as other stakeholders.
Apparently excited about the project, Oluseyi Ojurongbe, Manager Sahara Foundation says, “It is a good day for African girls where most of the projects will be executed and even a better day for girls all around the world. After all, one empowered girl is a huge leap towards the emergence of a better world.”

Of key significance, in terms of our contribution to the empowerment of young people and the creation of safe spaces for them, is our virtual extrapreneurship hub. This platform goes beyond providing a safe space for young people to interact and develop by also providing and connecting them to opportunities that help them grow, create impact, and reach their aspirations.

Offline, Sahara collaborates with various stakeholders to provide safe spaces to nurture the dreams of young people. A case in point is the renovation and state of the art upgrade of the industrial kitchen at the Lagos State Vocational Centre in Surulere where over six hundred young people in the Surulere community annually acquire food-making skills in an atmosphere that promotes learning and engenders creativity. This results in improved income generating capacity for the beneficiaries in line with goal 8 of the SDGs – Decent Work and Economic Growth.

Similar interventions have been implemented in countries across Africa including Zambia, Tanzania, Ghana and Cote d’Ivoire.

In partnership with Enactus Nigeria, Sahara encourages innovations among undergraduates who design brilliant and transformative sustainable solutions to address the Sustainable Development Goals. Sahara Foundation has supported the Enactus Nigeria National Competition where these innovations from students of different institutions around the Nigeria and showcase. Recently, the partnership was reloaded to support some of the innovators to create marketable and scalable products out of their solutions.

In 2016, Sahara launched the Grooming Film Extrapreneurs initiative aimed at promoting a hub of enterprise that connects budding filmmakers with stakeholders that can help hone their skills to enhance productivity, excellence, and sustainability. In its first year, three finalists were granted an internship with Kunle Afolayan, one of Africa’s ace movie directors as well as sponsored for furthering skills development at the London Film School.

The second edition of the initiative had over one hundred girls (15 to 20 years old) from three West African Countries – Ghana, Cote d’Ivoire and Nigeria – acquire basic film-making and editing training from one of the world's youngest film-makers, Zuriel Oduwole. These interventions not only empower the beneficiaries for self-reliance and improved economic capacity, it also helps girls/women who are the major beneficiaries attain an increased sense of self-worth, self-belief, and confidence to take on big goals.

Sahara’s commitment to the development of young people has led to interventions in line with goal four of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) – Quality Education. From the rehabilitation of seven classrooms and an upgrade of the Technical Workshop at the Manhean Senior Secondary School in Ghana to the upgrade of the library at Pugu Secondary School in Tanzania, Sahara Group remains committed to the improvement of education for young people across Africa. In addition, in the past four years, over 100 full scholarships covering tuition, uniforms, books, and feeding during schooling hours have been given to secondary school students in Nigeria who would otherwise have been unable to get an education.

David Ekugum one of Sahara Foundation’s young program officers explains that Sahara’s interventions have also enhanced access to water and sanitary facilities in schools and communities, resulting in the wellbeing of students. Over the years, Sahara Foundation has implemented numerous Water Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) programmes in schools and communities across Africa. This includes over fifty borehole projects in Ghana, Cote d’Ivoire, and Nigeria; toilet constructions in schools where they were either dilapidated or none existent including schools in Ghana, Nigeria and Tanzania. These interventions have resulted in improved school attendance but particularly improved safety for the students who prior to such interventions had to use bushes as their toilet. " In our experience, girls have been the biggest beneficiaries of our SWASH (School Water Sanitation and Hygiene) Projects as open/bush defecation/urination put them at more risk than boys. The toilets constructed provide safe spaces of hygiene for these students," says David who is passionate about the SDG for all mantra.

As the world celebrates the International Youth Day 2018, Sahara Group reaffirms its commitment to giving wings to young people’s aspirations by creating an enabling environment and safe spaces for them to express their talent and enterprise.

Washington Mesothelioma Victims Center Now Offers a Paper Mill Worker with Mesothelioma in Washington Much Better Attorney Options to Ensure They Receive the Best Financial Compensation Results

It is vital to have the nation's most skilled and experienced mesothelioma attorneys assisting you with compensation claim as we would like to explain at 800-714-0303”

— Washington Mesothelioma Victims Center

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, USA, August 13, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — According to the Washington Mesothelioma Victims Center, "We specialize in assisting pulp and paper mill workers in Washington State and nationwide receive the very best possible financial compensation if they have been diagnosed with mesothelioma. Pulp and paper mills in Washington State still employ thousands of workers and have done so for generations. Unfortunately, pulp and paper mill workers are still being diagnosed with mesothelioma, as we would like to discuss anytime at 800-714-0303-and we would like to help.

"If you are a pulp or paper mill worker who has been recently diagnosed with mesothelioma and you want to receive the very best possible financial compensation, it is vital to have the nation's most skilled and experienced mesothelioma attorneys assisting you with compensation claim as we would like to explain at 800-714-0303." http://Washington.MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

Pulp and paper mills typically were built with fire prevention in mind. Most were insulated with asbestos and much of the equipment contained asbestos. Workers at these types of workplaces were exposed to asbestos frequently or on a-daily basis. The workers we are specifically focused on were involved in plant maintenance, or they were a plumber, electrician, or a welder and their job was to keep the mill running.

According to the group, "Many of our nation's pulp and paper mills are-located in smaller cities or rural areas where the top mesothelioma treatment options may not be available such as Camas or Longview, Washington. In addition to ensuring a pulp and paper mill worker hires the nation’s most capable attorneys we are also urging a person or family dealing with mesothelioma to call us at 800-714-0303 about the best possible medical treatment options in their area or region-which in this instance is the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Clinic and the University of Washington in Seattle. We are advocates for people with mesothelioma and our unsurpassed services are free.” http://Washington.MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

The Washington Mesothelioma Victims Center wants to emphasize their services are available statewide in every community in Washington including Seattle, Tacoma, Spokane, Everett, Vancouver, Yakima, Bellingham, Aberdeen, Bremerton, Moses Lake, Olympia, Mount Vernon, Wenatchee, the Tri Cities, etc.

For the best possible mesothelioma treatment options in Washington the Washington Mesothelioma Victims Center strongly recommends the following heath care facility with the offer to help a diagnosed victim, or their family get to the right physicians at this treatment facility. The Center believes this treatment facility for mesothelioma to be one of the best in the nation.

* Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center and the UW Medical Center called the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance, in Seattle, Washington: http://www.uwmedicine.org/services/cancer-care

High-risk work groups for exposure to asbestos in Washington State include Veterans of the US Navy, hydro-electric power plant workers, shipyard workers, nuclear power plant workers, oil refinery workers, pulp and paper mill workers, factory workers, plumbers, electricians, miners, auto mechanics, machinists, and construction workers. Typically, the exposure to asbestos occurred in the 1950’s, 1960’s, 1970’s, or 1980’s. http://Washington.MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

The states indicated with the highest incidence of mesothelioma include Maine, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio, West Virginia, Virginia, Michigan, Illinois, Minnesota, Louisiana, Washington, and Oregon.

Conflict Free Minerals Only

Ensuring Ethical Practices and Products Through Conflict-Free Minerals

WESTLAKE VILLAGE, CA, USA, August 10, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Autec Power Systems has been committed to ethical business practices since our inception. This has never been more important than with the rise of conflict minerals used in electronic components throughout the technology industry in the last decade. These minerals include tin (cassiterite ore), tungsten (wolframite ore), tantalum (coltan ore), and gold. It's important to note that these minerals are used extensively in not only power supplies and power solutions, but throughout society in things like airplanes, cell phones, jewelry and medical equipment. Militant groups in the Democratic Republic of the Congo have used the theft, sale and profits from these minerals to wage war and sustain a more than decade long conflict. Pressure from organizations seeking ethical alternatives has caused the United States government to pass a measure requiring the disclosure of supply chains from consumer electronics companies. Thanks in large part to these efforts and the overall addressing of this major international issue by the public, the number of militant controlled mines and refiners have been greatly reduced allowing for more conflict-free mineral sources.

It is Autec Power Systems policy to not intentionally or knowingly purchase products, components, or materials that contain conflict minerals. We strive to avoid contributing to conflicts through our sourcing practices. Autec Power Systems is taking steps to ensure that the use of key component materials meet the aforementioned Section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. We request our suppliers be DRC conflict-free and source from smelters validated as compliant to a Conflict-Free Smelter protocol using the CFS Compliant Smelter List. We also require suppliers to provide a completed Conflict Minerals Reporting Template to provide reasonable assurance that the specified minerals are not being sourced from “Conflict Regions.” We ask our suppliers to work with us in our efforts to ensure we procure non-conflict minerals. We encourage our suppliers to responsibly source non-conflict minerals and derivative metals from the DRC and neighboring countries in order to prevent an embargo and associated worsening of economic conditions and human suffering.

Key Anacon Main zone

osisko metals (TSX-V:OM)

MONTRéAL, QUéBEC, CANADA, August 8, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — (Montreal – August 8, 2018) Osisko Metals Incorporated (the “Company” or “Osisko Metals”) (TSX-V: OM; FRANKFURT: OB5) is pleased to announce results from on-going drilling at both the Main Zone and the Titan Zone on its wholly owned Key Anacon project, located 20 km south of Bathurst, New Brunswick. Drill hole KAMZ-18-03A intersected 46.5 metres grading 8.94% Zn, 3.14% Pb, 0.1% Cu, 98.4 g/t Ag, and 0.481 g/t Au, including 20.0m of 14.71% Zn, 5.71% Pb, 0.08% Cu, 183.00 g/t Ag and 0.46 g/t Au (see Table 1).
Drill hole KAMZ-18-03A targeted the core of the historical Main Zone deposit. This hole crosscut several massive sulphide zones (see Tables 1 and 3 as well as Main Zone Longitudinal Section) prior to intersecting 46.50 metres of high grade massive sulphides. These results confirm the thickness (true thickness estimated at 26 metres) and grades from nearby historical (1950-1960’s) underground drilling. Drill hole KAMZ-18-03A is an important early confirmation of historical drill results (see Table 2) in preparation for a maiden NI43-101 Mineral Resource Estimate, slated to be released in late 2019.
Jeff Hussey, President and CEO of Osisko Metals, commented: “We are very encouraged by the confirmation of the thickness and high grades of the core of the Main Zone Deposit. The Key Anacon project hosts two of the best targets across the entire Bathurst Mining Camp. Ongoing drilling at the Main Zone deposit is now targeting open or very sparsely drilled areas along strike and at depth. We are also seeing continued success at the nearby Titan Zone where drilling intersected significant thicknesses of Zn-Pb rich massive sulphides and new copper, silver and gold-rich zones”.

At the Titan Zone, located 1.5 kilometres to the northeast of the Key Anacon Main Zone, drill hole KA-18-02 encountered a significant copper rich zone that returned 20.9 metres grading 1.84% Cu, 1.92% Zn, 0.65% Pb, 23.73 g/t Ag and 0.46 g/t Au. Located 21 metres above this interval in the hole was a 2.1 metre intersection grading 10.52% Zn, 4.02% Pb, 0.45% Cu, 422.38 g/t Ag, and 0.09 g/t Au (see Tables 1 and 3).
Drill hole KAEZ-18-03 intersected 32.0 metres of massive sulphides including a 6.0 metre zone of 6.14% Zn, 2.68% Pb, 0.55% Cu, 43.53 g/t Ag, and 0.41 g/t Au located approximately 185 metres down-plunge from Rio Algom’s historical 1993 drill hole (KA93-42) that intersected 19.90 metres grading 7.86% Zn, 3.58 % Pb, 0.33% Cu and 78.0 g/t Ag within 82.27 metres of mineralization. This Rio Algom hole also encountered two copper-rich zones within the broader massive sulphide zone. They contained 1.83% Cu over 10.3 metres as well as 2.30% Cu over 8.5 metres. Hole KAEZ-18-03 is also situated 235 m down-plunge from KA-18-01 containing 6.07% Zn, 2.19% Pb, 0.92% Cu, 48.8 g/t Ag and 0.04 g/t Au over 22.2 metres (See Osisko Metals news release of June 27, 2018).
The Cu rich zones in KA-18-02 and KAEZ-18-03 are located down plunge from hole KA-18-01 (see Titan Zone Longitudinal Section) that intersected 7.45 metres of 2.17% Cu, 47.95 g/t Ag and 2.97 g/t Au (See Osisko Metals news release of June 27, 2018).

The deepest historical drillhole in the Titan Zone is located at over a kilometer depth. KA01-15B, encountered a 75-metre-thick interval of massive sulphides containing 5.1% Zn + Pb over 9.3 metres, 9.25 % Zn+Pb over 13.0 metres and 5.55% Zn+Pb over 24.3 metres.

About Key Anacon

The Key Anacon project is located approximately 20 km south of the town of Bathurst, New Brunswick and 16 km southeast of the former Brunswick No.12 mine. It is accessible by paved roads. The property contains two known Bathurst-type volcanogenic massive sulphide deposits containing zinc, lead, copper and silver. The Key Anacon Main Zone and Titan Zone deposits are situated at the same stratigraphic horizon that hosted the Brunswick No. 12 & No. 6 mines. The property covers approximately 12 kilometres of favorable Nepisiguit Falls stratigraphy that also extends onto the surrounding claims held 100% by Osisko Metals.
No mineral resource estimates have been calculated under NI43-101 guidelines. Except for exploration programs conducted in 1992-1993 and 2000, almost all of the drilling was completed in the 1950’s and 60’s, prior to currently required standards for quality assurance and quality control. The earlier drilling led to the establishment of a 460 metre shaft, a vent raise, eight levels and three sub-levels at the Main Zone. The Government of New Brunswick, Department of Energy and Resource Development, Energy and Mines Division reports the Main Zone deposit as having a historical resource (Non-NI 43-101 compliant) of 1.87 million tonnes grading 6.93% Zn, 2.63% Pb, 0.16% Cu, and 84 g/t Ag in multiple folded lenses. The deposit is open at depth and along strike.
Exploration potential at Key Anacon and the Company’s adjacent properties is considered to be excellent on the basis of the presence of the Brunswick Horizon stratigraphy and the expansive zones of mineralization and alteration. Both the Titan Zone and Main Zone are open at depth and along strike. Exploration and development programs in the 1950’s and 1960’s were terminated due to the pullback of the zinc commodity price at that time. Since then, only two minor exploration programs were conducted by major mining companies.
