BGC warns UK curfew puts “thousands” of casino jobs at risk

first_img Email Address In a letter to Culture Secretary Oliver Dowden, BGC chief executive Michael Dugher (pictured) and Genting UK boss Paul Wilcock said the move could potentially lead to “thousands” of the UK’s 14,000 casino employees losing their jobs. In July, Genting UK announced that 1,642 jobs across its properties were at risk of redundancy as a result of disruption caused by the pandemic. BGC warns UK curfew puts “thousands” of casino jobs at risk “The introduction of a blanket measure such as curfews would certainly result in many thousands of redundancies in a very short timeframe,” Dugher and Wilcock wrote. “It is no exaggeration to state that it would devastate the UK land-based casino sector.” Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Dugher added that the rule could potentially lead to many casinos closing permanently. The BGC has previously warned of permanent closures of casinos over delays in reopening and “outdated” payment laws for foreign customers, as well as permanent closures of betting shops if business rates relief systems were not extended to the sector. “We support the need to act swiftly to protect public health, and thank the Government for the support they have given the UK’s casinos so far,” he said. “However, a blanket 10pm curfew on businesses would be catastrophic and force casinos to close once again – this time for good.” AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter “It would certainly result in many thousands of redundancies, while having a negligible impact on the spread of Covid,” he said. “Since reopening In August, casinos have been able to protect customers and staff through providing best in class safety measures, including sophisticated track and trace systems.” Casino & games In addition, the letter also called on the Government to either extend the UK’s furlough scheme or introduce other targeted support for businesses, as it said casinos were not operating at a high enough capacity yet to support full employment. “Any new social distancing measures should be focused on the areas and age groups of the country at most risk, not just arbitrarily applied across the board.” “The conclusion to draw is that the impact of a casino curfew on Covid numbers would be negligible but the impact on our businesses would be catastrophic,” it said. “To ensure the sector’s survival it is vital that any additional Covid social distancing measures, such as curfews, are not imposed on businesses that have demonstrated that they are Covid-secure and do not cater for the age group targeted by the measure.” Dugher echoed this sentiment and said anti-pandemic measures need to be more targeted towards the greatest sources of risk. The curfew, reportedly being considered by the government in order to limit the spread of the virus would see casinos as well as pubs forced to close early, a measure the BGC described as “drastic”. 16th September 2020 | By Aaron Noy The letter added that a curfew at casinos was unlikely to have a strong effect towards the intended goal of limiting the spread of Covid-19. It cited measures in place at the venues, including limits on capacity, screens between players and track and trace systems as reasons why spread from casinos should be low and noted that Public Health England and the Department for Health and Social Care said casinos were not “higher risk” in July.

Referee overrules TMO to Red Card player who is off the field for HIA and stitches

first_imgTuesday Mar 9, 2021 Referee overrules TMO to Red Card player who is off the field for HIA and stitches Gloucester flyer Ollie Thorley received one of the more bizarre sending-offs we’ve seen after a dangerous challenge he made against Wasps this past weekend. He faces a disciplinary hearing today. ADVERTISEMENTIn an eventful contest that included one of the greatest prop assists for a try ever seen, Thorley was just another talking point after he flew into a tackle upright.The England-capped speedster chased a Willie Heinz high ball but unfortunately went into the challenge on Rob Miller very upright, resulting in a clash of heads/faces.WATCH: Ollie Thorley turns on the afterburners for one of the best tries you will see this yearThorley received immediate medical attention and had to go off for an HIA with blood gushing from his face, and was replaced by Charlie Sharples.Referee Matthew Carley had his attention drawn to the incident and despite the best efforts of TMO Graham Hughes to dissuade him from taking a stringent view on the challenge, Carley broke it down.“He is upright. He doesn’t bend at all, and he is going forward into the tackle. With the black player, there is no significant dip there. So I think we’ve definitely got fault by the white player. He could bend at the waist and he could tackle lower,” said the referee to his TMO.Hughes responded: “But I’m not seeing that as foul play. He goes to grasp him.. and he then comes off worse, so…”ADVERTISEMENTCarley overruled him, again citing the facts of the incident, and eventually got Hughes to agree with him (albeit reluctantly).“He’s always high. He’s got clear line of sight to run into the tackle, and he makes direct head contact with the Wasps player… No attempt to dip. I don’t think there’s any way we can mitigate that. So it’s got to be a red card,” Carley said.The red card was shown, and with Thorley already off the field, his replacement Sharples then had to return to the bench.Thorley will today (Tues 9.3) face an independent disciplinary hearing for a dangerous tackle, contrary to World Rugby Law 9.13.ADVERTISEMENTYou can see the incident in full in the highlights below.

Many Coproducts Possible From Cellulosic Ethanol

first_img By Gary Truitt – Mar 12, 2015 Previous articleSyngenta Offering 22 New Soybean Varieties for 2015Next articleWheat Growers Call For End to Cuba Embargo Gary Truitt Many Coproducts Possible From Cellulosic Ethanol SHARE Facebook Twitter Adhesives, chemicals, resins, acids and carbon fibers are just a few of the potential coproducts that could, someday, be produced at a cellulosic ethanol biorefinery. Poet-DSM Advanced Biofuels, Abengoa Bioenergy and DuPont all tell Ethanol Producer Magazine they are keeping a close eye on the future. But for now, all three companies see value in lignin. Poet-DSM and Abengoa both plan to burn the lignin produced at their facilities, to provide on-site power, with small differences in the two company’s strategies. In contrast, DuPont’s facility is natural-gas powered and the company is marketing its lignin-rich coproduct to third-party customers.Lignin burned at the Project Liberty cellulosic ethanol plant in Emmetsberg, Iowa, will produce process steam for that facility and the colocated corn-ethanol plant.  “We know it works, it’s proven technology,” says Steve Hartig, calling it the easy solution. The company also has an on-site anaerobic digester, which will produce methane from the liquid lignin stream. “Between the two of them, it’s a significant energy cost savings,” he says. At the time Hartig spoke to EPM, he was general manager of licensing for Poet-DSM. In mid-February, prior to press time, it was announced that he would pursue a a career outside Poet-DSM.At Abengoa’s facility in Hugoton, Kansas, lignin-fired boilers will produce steam and electricity to power the plant, and additional electricity to sell to the electrical grid. Although the company continues to consider other possible markets for lignin or other potential coproducts, for right now, the highest-value use is to power the plant. “We’re pretty much an island when it comes to energy needs,” says Chris Standlee, executive vice president of Abengoa Bioenergy. “We are self-sufficient and that is primarily because we use that lignin for the fuel.”DuPont, on the other hand, is approaching lignin a little differently at its facility in Nevada, Iowa. Although the company believes burning lignin for onsite power is a good option, the goal is to offer those interested in licensing its technology flexibility, says Steve Ogle, cellulosic ethanol commercial leader with DuPont Cellulosic Ethanol. Taking this path allows DuPont to demonstrate the sale of the lignin-rich material to third-party customers. Another option is that a producer may want to use the material for power generation at an alternate location.  “We believe that our coproducts strategy really helps to differentiate us from our competition,” he says, adding that future licensing partners may already have alternate means of powering a cellulosic ethanol plant.Depending on where it is taken off the process, the lignin-rich material produced at the DuPont facility takes on two main forms. One is wet filter cake, which is dried and pressed, and the other is liquid syrup. These two coproducts can be combined in various ways to create a customized granular form, depending on the customer’s needs.  “We have found that there is interest in all three varieties at this point,” Ogle says. Currently, DuPont has “opportunities for a significant volume” of the lignin-rich material produced at its facility, and is working on offtake agreements for the remaining amount.Among DuPont and its customers, there’s a lot excitement about using the material to lower greenhouse gas emissions by replacing fossil fuels, Ogle says. Although the initial application is burning the material to produce power, DuPont does have some other ideas as well.  “The more that we evaluate and develop our coproducts, the more we understand the wide variety and the potential of these coproducts,” he says, adding that he is unable to get into specifics due to confidentiality agreements.Other Products Burning lignin produces ash, which also has potential beneficial uses, says Hartig. While there’s some work yet to be done, Poet-DSM believes analysis will show it is safe to use as a soil amendment for farmland. “We expect it to have some advantages because it has some of the minerals that are coming from the corn stover, which can go back on the land,” he said.Other potential coproduct ideas might be interesting, but still a generation or two away from becoming a reality. Another possible challenge is the size of the market for a particular product. For example, Hartig says, there’s some R&D into carbon fiber that’s lower performance and lower cost. “The challenge at an ethanol plant is that about three or four days of our lignin could produce all the carbon fiber you could use in your lifetime,” he says. “So it could be a nice application but it’s not really going to drive anything from the cellulosic ethanol side.”He also mentioned Borregaard Group, an overseas company that produces pure lignin for building materials and other products as well as a small amount of ethanol. Other companies are investigating the idea of producing aromatic compounds. “We don’t see that as something that we need to invest in directly, but we are watching companies that are investing in that, and talking to them,” he said. “If one of those succeeds, it could certainly become an opportunity.”Although Abengoa is currently focused on getting its facility up to full ethanol-production levels and producing cellulosic ethanol, the company is open to wherever the market leads it in the future.  “What we are doing most of our work on, frankly,” Standlee tells EPM, “is diversifying our ultimate end products, taking the cellulosic sugars and looking to turn that into some other product besides ethanol.”While ethanol is the easiest conversion, there are other possibilities. “We are interested in finding new and different chemicals that are currently made from petroleum bases that we can make from renewable sugars,” he says. “We think there’s potentially a huge market for that.”Although it would most likely be an either or proposition, with the company transitioning to a completely new end-product, Abengoa has also talked about the possibility of adding on a tail-end processing facility for chemical production. The idea is to add product diversification in a way that would allow the company to produce cellulosic ethanol or another product and flip back and forth as efficiently as possible, depending on market drivers, Standlee says.
