(NYSE:JEC) has been appointed by Zero Waste Scotland to help progress its world-leading work on implementing circular economy solutions in Scotland. Jacobs will provide environmental, economic and engagement services ranging from research, identification of circular economy opportunities, development of pilot schemes, pipeline development, and technical support around feasibility studies and business cases for implementation of circular economy business models for Scottish small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). Jacobs is one of seven consultancies with circular economy expertise engaged to help Zero Waste Scotland expand its circular economy support over the next two years. Zero Waste Scotland supports delivery of the Scottish Government’s circular economy strategy, which seeks to retain products and materials in high-value use and make the most of resources, maximising economic benefit for Scotland and reducing environmental impact at the same time. Jacobs’ services will support Zero Waste Scotland and its SME partners achieve this goal. Louise McGregor, Head of Circular Economy at Zero Waste Scotland, said: “Scotland is an award-winning pioneer of the circular economy, and we at Zero Waste Scotland are proud to have supported more than 30 businesses with circular economy business models and services to date. We are working hard to ensure Scotland enjoys the maximum economic, social and environmental benefits of more circular approaches to business. This project will help us continue that vital work by developing even more opportunities to maximise profits and minimise environmental impact.” “Jacobs has worked with Zero Waste Scotland for several years to identify and respond to resource efficiency and circular economy opportunities in a variety of industry sectors,” said Jacobs Senior Vice President Buildings and Infrastructure Bob Duff. “We have some of the most experienced and enthusiastic specialists in the waste and resources industry; people who are passionate about challenging current thinking. Our strategic advice helps businesses operate more effectively and benefit from more sustainable resource use. We look forward to leveraging our experience and skills to build on the strong relationship we have developed with Zero Waste Scotland.” Jacobs is one of the world’s largest and most diverse providers of full-spectrum technical, professional and construction services for industrial, commercial and government organizations globally. The company employs over 54,000 people and operates in more than 25 countries around the world. For more information, visit www.jacobs.com. Zero Waste Scotland exists to create a society where resources are valued and nothing is wasted. Our goal is to help Scotland realise the economic, environmental and social benefits of making best use of the world’s limited natural resources. We are funded to support delivery of the Scottish Government’s circular economy strategy and the EU’s 2020 growth strategy. Zero Waste Scotland is lead partner on the Resource Efficient Circular Economy Accelerator Programme, a £70 million strategic intervention in the current round of European Structural and Investment Funds. The Scottish Government is the Managing Authority for the European Structural Funds 2014-20 Programme. For further information visit the Scottish Government website or follow @scotgovESIF.

Continuous Adjustable Pulfrich Filter Spectacles are provided with lenses with continuously changeable optical densities, so that viewing of 2D movies is optimized for visualization in natural 3D. Method and means are disclosed for the continuous Adjustable Pulfrich Filter Spectacles to perform two independent optimizations to achieve optimized 3Deeps visual effects on 2D movies. First they compute the optical density setting of the lenses for optimal viewing of 2D movies as 3D. Then they continuously render the lenses of the spectacles to these optical densities optimized for characteristics of the electro-optical material from which the lenses of the spectacles are fabricated. The invention works for both 3DTV and 3D Cinema theater viewing.

Dynamic compaction (DC) is an economical approach for mitigating the hazard posed by collapsible soils particularly when they are deeper than 3-4 m. In this paper, case histories are provided for 15 projects at 10 locations in the United States where collapsible soils were treated with DC. For each site the soil properties, compaction procedures, and subsequent improvement are summarized. Although cohesionless and low-plasticity collapsible soils were successfully compacted, clay layers in the profile appeared to absorb energy and severely reduced compaction effectiveness. Correlations are presented for estimating the maximum depth of improvement, the degree of improvement versus depth, the depth of craters, and the level of vibration based on measurements made at the various sites. The compactive energy per volume was typically higher than for noncollapsible soils because collapsible soils are usually loose but relatively stiff. The maximum depth of improvement was similar to that for noncollapsible soils; however, significant scatter was observed about the best-fit line. Improvement was nonuniform with nearly 80% of the total improvement occurring within the top 60% of the improvement zone. The crater depth was related to a number of factors besides the drop energy including the number of drops, drop spacing, and contact pressure. The peak particle velocities were typically lower than those for noncollapsible soils at shorter distances, but the vibrations attenuated more slowly with distance. © 2010 ASCE.

Coal mining is one of the main industries in the Hunter Valley region of New South Wales (NSW), Australia. From an environmental perspective, dust and the contribution from mining is a key topic of discussion by industry, regulators and the community. While measured dust levels are influenced by many sources, the local mining industry generally aims to manage site emissions as far as is reasonably practicable. To assist with the management of dust emissions from coal mines in the Hunter Valley, the Australian Coal Association Research Programfunded a project (C19034) to develop an emission estimation and air dispersion modelling system. This paper describes the system and its key outcomes. The main objective of the system is to issue dust and meteorological forecasts so that operations can plan for and implement suitable emission reduction measures in advance of potentially adverse conditions. The system makes use of the CSIRO’s computer-based air dispersion model known as TAPM (The Air Pollution Model). This model is provided with estimates of mine site dust emissions and forecasts of meteorological conditions to predict ambient dust concentrations in the Hunter Valley, for up to two days in advance. Dust concentrations are represented as an air quality index, consistent with the approach adopted by the NSW Office of Environment and Heritage. Forecasts are delivered via a daily email and detailed system outputs are uploaded to a dedicated web-site that can be accessed at any time by relevant stakeholders. Interest in the system has grown since its development and the main factor for the take up appears to be the simplistic nature of the outputs. Further work could involve improving the emission estimation, especially during rainfall events, to improve the overall performance of the system. © 2015 WIT Press.
