Promoting measures against salt damage in the Mekong Delta region in cooperation with Can Tho University, Vietnam

Kyoto, Japan, Jan 22, 2019 - (ACN Newswire) - Murata Manufacturing Co., Ltd. is promoting measures to address salinity impact to agricultural land by conducting field trials utilizing a soil monitoring system that makes it possible to visualize the condition of agricultural land in the Mekong Delta*1 in collaboration with Can Tho University, a national university of Vietnam. The initiative is part of "Studies on Sustainable Soil Uses*2" (hereinafter referred to as "the Project"), based on an agreement between the governments of Japan and Vietnam to provide ODA (Official Development Assistance) in support of measures to address the problem of salinity impact to agricultural land.

1. Background of the Project

Vietnam's Mekong Delta region is subject to salinity impact from the infiltration of seawater during the dry season as a result of a decline in the volumetric flow rate of the Mekong River and the action of the tides under the impact of climate change driven by global warming. In addition to salt damage, the environment for agriculture has become harsher than in the past due the increasing severity of droughts and floods. The Mekong Delta region contains 30% of Vietnam's farmland and accounts for the majority of its domestic food production, and the damage, which is estimated to run into billions to tens of billions of yen, has become a serious problem.

Murata has been conducting the Project since 2017 in collaboration with Can Tho University, which possesses deep knowledge of agricultural and environmental research in the Mekong Delta. The Company is using compact sensor units that draw on its know-how and expertise in the fields of electronic components, circuit design and software design to measure the condition of agricultural land and channel water with high precision. Combining these observations with independently developed monitoring tools, we can visualize and analyze the environmental conditions with a view. It contributes to the implementation of IT in agriculture in the Mekong Delta region by preventing salt damage to rice paddies and orchards, ameliorating salt and sulfur contamination of agricultural land and water channels, and creating a mechanism to comprehensively manage fertilizers, crops and irrigation systems.

2. Features of the Soil Monitoring System

The wireless transmitter-receiver system consists of a gateway, a router and several sensor nodes. Each sensor node is made up of a transmitter*3 and three sensor units to measure the soil, field and channel water quality, and the sensing data is accumulated in the cloud.

The main features are as follows.
- A compact approximately 13cm sensor unit equipped with three sensors for measuring two types of electrical conductivity*4, temperature and moisture content
- High-precision analysis of conditions utilizing a sensor incorporating a uniquely shaped sensor element and a proprietary algorithm
- Over a year of continuous operation on three size AA batteries
- IP68*5 dust and water resistance and reliable rustproofing enabling prolonged use in harsh environments

3. Future Outlook

The Project began with a three-year plan from 2017 utilizing know-how developed in the restoration of agricultural land based on monitoring of the salt content condition of farmland damaged by the tsunami triggered by the Great East Japan Earthquake of 2011. In addition to Soc Trang and Ca Mau Province, where the monitoring system was initially introduced, in October 2018 we deployed the system in other four locations in Ben Tre and Kien Giang province. Through joint researches with many research institutions, Murata will continue to make efforts to realize global SDGs*6 by utilizing its unique sensing and wireless technologies.

4. Installation in the Mekong Delta

*1 The delta region of the lower reaches of the Mekong River including southeastern Cambodia
*2 An initiative for improving the fertility and quality of soil for crop production on alluvial soils, acid sulfate soils and saline-affected soils in the Mekong Delta of Vietnam. It is also aimed at improving profitability and realizing sustainable agriculture capable of adapting to climate change.
*3 A device used to generate and transmit electromagnetic waves carrying messages or signals
*4 Indicates the ability of a material to conduct electricity
*5 The highest level of dustproof and waterproof performance among the protection grades for the exterior surfaces of electronic devices
*6 Sustainable Development Goals: International goals from 2016 to 2030 adopted at the United Nations Summit of September 2015

PaintExpo 2020 with Strong Demand for Booth Locations
 
Nov 29, 2018
Category:

Oberboihingen --( ASIA TODAY )-- Just a few months after the seventh edition of the world’s leading trade fair for industrial coating technologies closed – which achieved new record-breaking numbers with regard to exhibitors, visitors and internationalism – firm bookings for booth floor space at PaintExpo 2020 have already been submitted by 304 companies from 19 countries. At a current level of 124,000 square feet (11.536 square meters), net exhibition floor space already amounts to more than 74% of the level reached at the last event. This is a strong indication that the upcoming PaintExpo will once again be larger than ever before.

For the eighth time, PaintExpo will showcase innovations, applications, future technologies and trends covering all aspects of coating from the 21st through the 24th of April, 2020. It presents the full spectrum of international product and service offerings in the field of industrial coating technology throughout the entire value creation chain. This internationally unique concentration of companies from industrial coating technology is the basis for the event’s strong ability to attract users from job-shop coaters and companies with in-house painting operations from around the globe. 11,790 expert visitors from 88 countries travelled to Karlsruhe in 2018 (representing a 12% increase). More than one third of the visitors came from countries other than Germany. Most of the visitors brought concrete tasks and projects along with them. “We participate at numerous trade fairs – in Asia and America too – but where the quality of the exhibitors and visitors are concerned, as well as product quality and coverage, PaintExpo is the global leader. That’s why we’ll exhibit in 2020 again,” explains Frank Berg, Managing Director of Caldan Service GmbH. Professor Dr. Nils A. Reinke, CEO of Winterthur Instruments AG in Switzerland, has already made firm plans to participate as well: “We’ve been exhibiting at PaintExpo ever since our company was founded seven years ago, and participation at the trade fair has had a significant impact on the development of our business. It provides us with an ideal platform for the presentation of our products. Aside from this, we gain a great deal of input for the further development of our products thanks to the broad spectrum of visitors.”

A look at the exhibitor list, which is already full of world-class enterprises 17 months before the trade fair opens, makes it apparent that these assessments coincide with those of many other companies: 304 companies from 19 countries have already made firm bookings for their booth floor space at the world’s leading trade fair in 2020, and they enjoyed a full range of options in selecting their booth locations. The list includes nearly all of the national and international market and technology leaders from the various exhibition segments. At a current level of 124,000 square feet (11.536 square meters), net exhibition floor space already amounts to more than 74% of the level reached at the event in 2018. The strong demand for booth floor space long before the event opens once more underscores the outstanding position enjoyed by PaintExpo as a global industry meet.

Focus on Future-Oriented Coating

Jürgen Haußmann, managing director of trade fair promoters FairFair GmbH, is convinced that PaintExpo will continue to experience strong development where visitor numbers are concerned as well: “Even if requirements and developments differ in the various user sectors and countries – as key technologies, painting and coating are an important success factor.” And it’s correspondingly important for companies with in-house painting operations and coating job-shops to prepare themselves for new requirements. In addition to ever stricter customer demands for quality, economy and flexibility, this also involves more efficient use of materials and resources, as well as sustainability. Additional issues include advancing digitalisation and networking of production processes, the use of new materials and material combinations, and the trend towards individualisation.

“Regardless of whether coatings for metal, plastic, wood or wooden materials, glass, composites or other materials are involved, visitors to the upcoming PaintExpo will once again be presented with correspondingly adapted product, process and problem solutions thanks to the unique, future-oriented offerings shown by the exhibitors,” says Jürgen Haußmann with confidence already today.

The exhibition programme of the world’s leading trade fair for industrial coatings technology covers coating equipment for liquid, powder, UV, immersion and coil processes, paints and enamels for all processes, application systems, spray guns and atomisers, automation and conveyor technology, cleaning and pre-treatment, drying and curing, environmental technology, pneumatics, compressed air supply and exhaust purification, water treatment, recycling and disposal, accessories, masking, measuring and test technology, quality assurance, identification, paint stripping, job-shop coating, services, packaging and technical literature.

Category:

Efficient, variable and easy to operate
Vacuum specialist Leybold has now launched the outstanding LEYSPEC for efficient residual gas analysis in vacuum systems. The product series is available in six variants and is therefore predestined for all basic and extended residual gas analysis methods in demanding high and ultra-high vacuum applications. Due to its compact size and flexible mountability, the innovation is suitable for very different installation situations and measuring tasks in research and industry.

Highest sensitivity, uncomplicated handling
The device is designed for modern and sustainable process monitoring and thus combines uncomplicated handling with maximum detection sensitivity. Equipped with an integrated display, the LEYSPEC product range is easy and ergonomic to operate: At the touch of a button, users can display the partial pressures of the relevant gases at any time. If the user is interested in an additional gas in his process, another channel can be individually assigned to it.

For simple operations and complex analyses
The LEYSPEC software, which is part of the product range, supports the comfortable usability of the LEYSPEC models and also enables a wide range of applications – from simple operations to complex analyses. The software always displays the total pressure. The intelligent software offers users various analysis options from which they can choose. Additional test procedures and functionalities are pre-installed, such as the helium leak test or the setting of warnings and error limits for certain gases. Simple gas analyses can be performed without connecting the LEYSPEC to a computer.

The right solution, depending on process requirements
The new LEYSPEC series offers the perfect solution for all applications in mass spectrometry. With regard to residual gas analysis, the product range offers solutions for 100, 200 or 300 amu (atomic mass units), depending on process requirements. The LEYSPEC view version is particularly suitable for residual gas analyses in high-vacuum pumping stations, in research and development applications as well as for environmental tracking and gas impurity analyses. The LEYSPEC ultra variant, on the other hand, is designed for sophisticated residual gas analyses with higher sensitivity, reliable detection of very low partial pressures and higher bake-out temperatures.

November 14, 2018 Kuala Lumpur The region’s foremost glass showcase, the Glasstech Asia series, opens today in Kuala Lumpur marking its return to the capital with its 16th edition of the International Glass Products, Glass Manufacturing, Processing & Materials Exhibition. Glasstech Asia 2018 held concurrently with Fenestration Asia 2018 from 14 to 16 November 2018, was officially opened this morning by Guest-of-Honour, Y.Bhg. Dato' Yean Yoke Heng, Deputy Secretary General (Management), Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture Malaysia. It is being held at the new state-of-the-art Malaysian International Trade Exhibition Centre (MITEC). The international show is endorsed by MATRADE and also supported by the Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture Malaysia (MOTAC) and Malaysia Convention & Exhibition Bureau (MyCEB), an agency under MOTAC.

The unparalleled glass showcase, which have gained prominence as the ‘Glass Hub of Southeast Asia’, provides regional and international industry players a broader understanding and expansive knowledge in glass manufacturing, processing, products and materials sector. Apart from being the preferred sourcing platform for architectural glass and processing needs, the showcase serves industry players from across the globe who are looking into tapping the growing market of Malaysia and the rest of Southeast Asia. Over three days, the showcase will also host the gathering of international experts from the glass industry who will put forward the latest in glass technology and innovation, as well as to address the latest developments and challenges faced by the industry.

The glass industry in Malaysia is experiencing a steady growth especially with the industry reinvesting in itself with glass manufacturing facilities. Malaysia is also actively attracting numerous industry players to set-up their businesses and glass manufacturing plants in the country. According to a 2017 market report by Global Market Insights, the world’s flat glass market size had surpassed USD 80 billion in 2016, and that the demand from construction applications is expected to exceed 120 million tonnes, surpassing USD 100 billion by 2024. A positive outlook in construction spending along with consumer demand for aesthetics and energy-efficient interiors are expected to encourage product demand. Technological advancements in construction projects have also led to new product developments in increasing sustainability, comfort, style and safety.

With rapid industrialisation, a booming construction industry and urbanisation in Malaysia, China and Thailand, and along with the adoption of smart and energy-efficient technologies by advanced construction practices, the demand for flat glass continues to be positive. In the Asia Pacific region alone, the demand for flat glass is rising as significant investments are being made in the modernisation of existing airports and terminals. Flat glass is also increasingly being used in the interior of buildings, replacing traditional materials such as stone and wood in the construction of floors, stairs, bathrooms and walkways.

The Latest Showcase for the Glass Industry
Glasstech Asia 2018 is organised by Conference & Exhibition Management Services Pte Ltd (CEMS) and Singapore Glass Association (SGA). The show is presented as an international exhibition for the architecture and building industries showcasing the latest technologies, products and services for the glass industry worldwide. Fenestration Asia 2018 is the third edition of the international windows, doors, skylights, curtain wall and facade technology exhibition.
The three-day exhibition which spans over a gross exhibition area of 7,000 square metres, is hosting 142 exhibitors from 13 countries. It is also expected to attract over 5,000 visitors, trade professionals, and conference delegates from Malaysia and the region.

A Focal Point for Learning
Glasstech Asia 2018 will double up as a learning focal point where it will host three conferences for delegates representing all areas of the architectural glass industry - the ASEAN Glass Associations Summit (AGAS), the ASEAN Architectural Glass Conference (AAGC) and The Green Building Seminar by the Malaysia Green Building Confederation.

The conferences will delve deep into topics pertaining to the growth outlook on construction and flat glass industries in ASEAN, the applicability of glass in ASEAN architecture, as well as a forum to discuss on achieving sustainability for building facades. The conferences will be attended by prominent glass associations from around the region, leading architects as well as experts from the construction and glass manufacturing industries.

Glasstech Asia 2018 is co-hosted by Malaysia Glass Association (PKM) and Safety Glass Processors Association of Malaysia (SGPAM), and supported by Malaysia Green Building Confederation, Flat Glass Alliance of the Philippines, Inc., Association of the German Trade Fair Industry, Glass and Glazing Federation, Indonesia Flat & Safety Glass Association, National Glass Association, Philippine Chamber of Glass & Aluminium Industry Inc., Taipei Glass Commercial Association, Taiwan Association of Machinery Industry, Thai Plate Glass Industry Association, Vietnam Glass Association, and Australian Glass & Glazing Association.
