Published: 19 Jan 18
The South African mining industry has had a tumultuous time because of the controversial Reviewed Draft Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment Charter for the South African Mining and Minerals Industry, also known as Mining Charter III, which, amid lingering political uncertainty, led to low investor confidence and continuing breaches of trust between government and industry, resulting in declining constructive engagement. The charter and its potential impact remain the headline cause of concern for the industry, say many industry commentators.

Flights all around the world could be encountering lots more turbulence in the future, according to the first ever global projections of in-flight bumpiness.   A new study published online in Geophysical Research Letters, a journal of the American Geophysical Union, has calculated that climate change will significantly increase the amount of severe turbulence worldwide between 2050 and 2080. Severe turbulence involves forces stronger than gravity, and is strong enough to throw people and ...
Channelling all ewaste to one plant the best way to ensure  viability of recycling in Southern Africa Channelling all ewaste to one plant the best way to ensure viability of recycling in Southern Africa
Published: 19 Jan 18
The establishment of an electronic waste (e-waste) recycling plant, which can cost R1.5-billion to build, will work best if the e-waste streams from across southern Africa can be channelled to such a megaplant, says information technology asset and e-waste recycling company Xperien CEO Wale Arewa. E-waste in South Africa is generally shipped to Germany, China, Singapore or Japan for processing, as these countries have the recycling facilities to do it at scale and profitably. Most of the e-waste streams in South Africa are non-profitable, with a need for producer responsibility schemes to support recycling or sufficient economies of scale to make recycling economically viable, he explains.
New, effective pipe joining method announced New, effective pipe joining method announced
Published: 19 Jan 18
Producer of mechanical pipe joining solutions Victaulic last month announced the European premiere of its Refuse-to-Fuse solution. This new technique enables high-density polyethylene (HDPE) pipes to be coupled without the need for fusion.  HDPE pipes are widely known and popular for their flexibility, long-term reliability and corrosion resistance. They are widely used, especially in the gas, water and wastewater sectors. The pipes are usually coupled using electrofusion or mirror welding, which require costly equipment and qualified personnel with a good command of these techniques.
