  • Superior Industries To Significantly Increase Footprint At Bauma 2019

    Superior Industries Inc., an American-based manufacturer and global supplier of bulk material processing and handling systems, says its presence at bauma 2019 will be three-times larger than previous editions of the world’s largest trade show. Today, the builder of crushing, screening, washing and conveying equipment unveiled its display plans.

    Inside Hall B2 at stand 107, Superior plans to showcase its brand new Alliance Low Water Washer. The one-of-a-kind technology allows crushing operators to wash fines within their crushing circuit. It saves from transporting the fines to a separate wash site, which requires costly trucks and harmful re-handling of the material.

    Available for production rates of 90 – 272 MTPH (100-300 TPH), the Alliance Low Water Washer accepts a dry feed from the crushing circuit. An agitator converts the material to a slurry before an integrated dewatering screen removes excess water, leaving as little as 8% moisture in the discharged manufactured sand. Superior says existing units have required as little 45-90 m3/hour of water (200-400 GPM), depending on production rates. That’s significantly less water consumption than a traditional screw or cyclone.

We are thrilled that the CIF-IFC is leading the first national public-private sector partnership targeting gender equity in Canada's forest sector. This initiative will support the recruitment, retention and advancement of women in Canada's diverse and dynamic forest sector," explains Dana Collins, CIF-IFC Executive Director.

  • Shell Gives Green Light To Invest In LNG Canada

    Shell Canada Energy, an affiliate of Royal Dutch Shell plc (“Shell”), has taken a final investment decision (FID) on LNG Canada, a major liquified natural gas (LNG) project in Kitimat, British Columbia, Canada, in which Shell has a 40% working interest. With LNG Canada’s joint venture participants also having taken FID, construction will start immediately with first LNG expected before the middle of the next decade

    Shell’s 40% share of the project’s capital cost is within the company’s current overall capital investment guidance of US$25-$30 billion per year.

    “We believe LNG Canada is the right project, in the right place, at the right time,” said Ben van Beurden, Chief Executive Officer, Royal Dutch Shell. “Supplying natural gas over the coming decades will be critical as the world transitions to a lower carbon energy system. Global LNG demand is expected to double by 2035 compared with today, with much of this growth coming from Asia where gas displaces coal. LNG Canada is well positioned to help Shell meet the growing needs of customers at a time when we see an LNG supply shortage in our outlook. With significant integration advantages from the upstream through to trading, LNG Canada is expected to deliver Shell an integrated internal rate of return of some 13%, while the cash flow it generates is expected to be significant, long life and resilient.”
