Endicott officials are looking at a new industry to bring to the area

first_imgWhen it comes to a location, Endicott officials say they are working with Huron to make a decision, and they may have found the perfect fit. The potential lot is part of the Huron Campus and sits on the corner of North Street and Hayes Street. June’s recycling bill for the Village of Endicott was about $40,000. By recycling glass locally at a future facility in Endicott, those transportation costs could be drastically cut. After doing some research, Endicott officials learned approximately 40 percent of the waste is glass. Glass is a heavy and non-biodegradable material. “We don’t want to pay to transport all of this, that’s the largest cost of recycling because of the weight,” said Chapman. “If we could recapture 20 percent of that $40,000, and you do that month after month, after month, that is huge for the village,” said Chapman. “One of the major components of attracting a glass recycling company is going to be the location, and to [be near] a railroad,” said Chapman. center_img Officials say they are now looking at the safety of recycling glass. According to Chapman, glass particles are released during recycling, but can be captured safely with heavy machinery. The money that would be saved comes directly from the village’s general fund. Endicott officials are now meeting with local leaders to discuss future plans, as well as New York State law when it comes to recycling products like glass. ENDICOTT (WBNG) — After the Taylor Garbage fire in January, Endicott officials saw garbage prices skyrocket. Now, they are looking at a solution to cut those costs. “We had to find something to lower this cost, because we can’t sustain this type of cost recycling. It’s costing the village taxpayers too much money,” said Endicott Deputy Mayor Cheryl Chapman. last_img read more

Airbus and AirAsia announce record deal for 200 planes

first_imgLifestyleTravel Airbus and AirAsia announce record deal for 200 planes by: – June 23, 2011 Share Sharing is caring! Share 27 Views   no discussionscenter_img Share Tweet Airbus chief executive Tom Enders said he was proud to be AirAsia’s partnerAirbus piled up the orders at the Paris air show as it announced the largest single order of commercial aircraft in history.Malaysia’s low-cost carrier AirAsia is buying 200 of the A320neo jets, in a deal worth about $18bn (£11bn).That eclipsed a deal on Wednesday, when India’s IndiGo confirmed an order for 180 planes from Airbus.The new versions of the A320 are in demand as their new engines make them more fuel-efficient and cheaper to run.The AirAsia deal, worth about $15.6bn, is for 150 A320neos and 30 A320s. It is confirmation of a memorandum of understanding the two companies signed in January this year.‘Historic deal’ Airbus said that the AirAsia deal made the Malaysian carrier its biggest airline customer for its single-aisle product line.Altogether, AirAsia has now placed firm orders for 375 aircraft from the A320 family, with 89 already in service.“With this historic deal, AirAsia has secured its future with the ability to meet the huge growth potential offered by the Asian market,” said Tony Fernandes, chief executive of AirAsia.Airbus, owned by EADS, has left rival Boeing far behind in terms of orders at the event, as high fuel costs increase the demand for more fuel-efficient aircraft.It has taken firm orders for 586 aircraft, worth about $55.8bn, with a further $29.5bn in provisional orders. Boeing, meanwhile, has taken firm orders for just 47 planes, worth $7.5bn, with another $14.9bn placed in provisional orders.Other manufacturers have also been signing contracts with airlines at the show.Canada’s Bombardier has received firm orders for 36 planes, with options for airlines to buy up to 26 more.Russian-Italian joint venture Superjet International has signed a provisional deal to sell 12 Superjet 100 airliners to Italian carrier Blue Panorama Airlines for $370m.The company, jointly-owned by Russia’s Sukhoi and a unit of Italy’s Finmeccanica, has 170 firm orders to date and delivered its first aircraft earlier this year.Boeing’s dilemma Airbus estimates it has sold more than 700 A320neo jets so far. “There is a possibility that we will be at 1,000 by the end of the show,” said Airbus sales chief John Leahy.According to the BBC’s aerospace industry specialist, Jorn Madslien, the A320neos are proving popular because their two new engines are 15% more fuel efficient and 30% cheaper to maintain than current models.But Airbus’ success leaves Boeing with a very tough dilemma, our correspondent at the air show says.The US planemaker’s A320 rival is the 737, but the plane is very low, so fitting modern, fuel-efficient engines under its wings would be a tight squeeze.Making it happen would require a new undercarriage, which is costly and difficult, as well as time-consuming, he says.BBC Newslast_img read more

Big Time shocks Fishery rivals

first_img Press Association Club Wexford, a stablemate of Dawn Approach and the 6-4 favourite, was all at sea early on but stayed on purposefully to finish a close-up third on his first visit to a racecourse. Murphy said: “He’s a real serious horse. We’ll think about the Coventry at Royal Ascot – he wants quick ground and has speed for anywhere. “He’s a proper one. He’d been working so well at home and doing things so easily.” Won 12 months ago by none other than Dawn Approach, the John Murphy-trained newcomer was largely unconsidered in what looked an up-to-scratch renewal of the five-furlong affair. Shane Foley’s mount maintained an honest gallop throughout, though, and kept on strongly passing the furlong pole to keep at bay Ballydoyle debutant Fountain Of Youth by a length and a half. center_img Big Time caused a 16-1 stir by claiming the Fishery Lane Race at Naas.last_img read more

Mr Green CEO tips England for ‘year of redemption’

first_imgShare Share StumbleUpon Mr Green CEO Jesper Kärrbrink has predicted a “year of redemption” for English football, but expects Germany and a Kylian Mbappé inspired France to contest the World Cup final.Kärrbrink, who will play a starring role during Betting on Sports Week (18-21 September), has made a series of predictions for this summer’s tournament in Russia, which concludes in Moscow on Sunday 15 July.Kärrbrink tipped 19-year-old Mbappé, who he described as “football’s next super scorer”, to win the Golden Boot, with Les Bleus to battle reigning champions Germany for the trophy.He said: “The drama and the battle between efficiency and artistry, the fight between neighbours and the class of the players for Germany and France could make this to one of the best games ever. Like a Champions League final on steroids.”Despite predicting an all-European final, Kärrbrink still thinks Lionel Messi will be crowned Player of the Tournament, while he expects countryman Victor Lindelöf to put his Premier League struggles behind him to become the biggest surprise of the World Cup 2018.“It’s a subjective and impossible category to bet on”, said Kärrbrink, “but it’s still an interesting one to speculate about. He might have struggled at Manchester United, but he has the potential to be a super star defender. I think he will show it this summer.”The Mr Green leader also had a positive outlook for the chances of England, who were dumped out of Euro 2016 by minnows Iceland – his tip as the ‘surprise advancement’ from a group featuring Messi’s Argentina, Croatia and Nigeria.“2018 is the year of redemption for English football,” he said. “England has been favourites (in England) since 1966 but never really lived up to the expectations, perhaps with the 2000’s as an exception.“This year, they have a great team, a strong coach and less pressure. And surely, they cannot repeat the fiasco from 2014. I predict they will reach the semi-final stage.”Finally, he expects Uruguay’s Fernando Muslera to be picked in goal for the Team of the Tournament, just pipping his other favourite stopper – Keylor Navas of Costa Rica. Karrbrink could well be reflecting on these predictions when he appears on the CEO Panel discussion during Betting on Sports in September. He will be joined on a star-studded #boscon2018 panel by Betway Group CEO Anthony Werkman, Fortuna Group CEO Per Widerstrom and George Daskalakis, Founder and CEO at Stoiximan and Betano.He will also be speaking on the CEO Panel at the CasinoBeats Summit, which is co-located with Betting on Sports at Olympia London.
