so the 'decomposing' benifits for single use disposable medical products is out then, given they are incinerated.
The other benifit of 'covid killing' micro properties is as yet unproven other than for bovine CV, walk before running is suggested.
The one thing i havent noticed discussed on here is that in general plastic waste, where the decomposing element would be a huge leap forward, is how do you sort the differing plastics out from each other and provide manufacturers who reuse the rcycled plastics with certainty of the different levels of polymer contained once evrything is mixed up?
Consistancy is king and without it across all recycled plastic to the same % levels the material is useless. Or are the company pushing for less recycling and more decomposing to replace this?
John, i was thinking the same this morning when the rya sp dropped to a '9' something. if viewed inverted then good old douglas would have been finally correct with his prediction of a 6. Unfortunately the correct way up the figures are now in the 10's, and the sp has declined by less than a third of its direct competitor ezj, now down by 11%.
The additional cash reserve of .1bn is easily explained however by the continued hold of the honourable douglas's refund, he books for lots of people - otherthan himself - in the guise of travel agent.
All humour aside, a good rns today i thought given the groundings and circumstances, piggybank remains topped up as was, but its clear the virus is still out there causing issues, for others a lot more than here.
Breathe, dont go changing your mind on my say so please, just check out the bits and bobs i mentioned, you may still fancy a dabble and id hate to scupper anything for you. Im a bit of an eco fan (excluding oil which i see as essential for years yet) - ive even made my own wind turbine lol. so although very very supportive of the concept of the degradation if proven, i am sceptical of todays announcement, just seems a bit mercenary to me. In my industry, like yours, such a steralising product would be invaluable so i hope it does eventually become mainstream in the future, think they need to disprove the BBc case to kickstart that one.
Ive previously looked at SYM, their product D2p's primary purpose is a plastic degrading chemical added to products made from plastic to allow them to decompose in the environment after a given timespan (dependant upon the concentration). It also seems to have some sort of bacterial killing properties so could be useful in scientific or medical situations. A very nifty and welcome product to reduce plastic waste in to the environment. The BBC and SYM are currently however battling in court after some programe or other belitttled the claims. In essence they said it doesnt work unless o2 is present so anything dumped in landfill doesnt actually decompose at all (apparantly). That programe killed the share price back to low single digits sometime back. Broadly where it has remained until today.
SYM have today announced that Bovine CV (not the one affecting humans currently) dies off in 24hrs on the surface of plastic treated with such a chemical, causing a near doubling in its price today.
Im no chemist, but it all sounds a little like 'bandwagon jumping' to me by a company who have their rear a little close to the fire (they make no profit) and surely such a superb on the face of it product should be included in every piece of plastic produced for the alleged environmental benifits alone, let alone this new found benifit. Greta and governments around the world should be singing its praise and legislating, but only a few Me countries have for some reason, and the company has struggled on. Who knows what will happen with it in the current climate of Covid lifeboat grabbing, but i think the new quality is a cynical ploy myself, how long does Covid stay on 'normal' untreated plastic i wonder.
with respect Hedgehog, the aviation industry is on its rear, so tant wont be needed there in any increasing quantities in the medium term, probably less. electronics?, maybe given tech working practises nowadays, if no worldwide recession arrives as predicted of course.
The pipeline funding and construction has also taken several years to not actually materialise, tenders were received many many months ago now, and yet nothing started or announced on the subject, in fact they have gone cold on the subject and reverted to solar boreholes IIRC? No water = minimal (if any) product. Which incidentaly they were apparantly producing sometime back, but again, thats gone very quiet, and it was quiet enough when they were apparantly producing with very minimal details.
GC did do well with the drinks business i grant you, but a share price decline from 15p here down to fractions of a penny is called value destruction certainly not progress.
It is also perfectly acceptable for people to have an opposing view to the 'applauders' and post negatively, opinions are just that and we all have them, its what makes the world go round and provides balance, and its often needed here, given the facts.
By the time the 'jam tomorrow' arrives here some investors may well have starved to death.
Breathe, am glad the result came back as you'd wished, negative.
My next door neighbour a Ward PT in a previously red designated hosp has only had one antigen (pointless i thought?) test since all this began. Came back negative for antibodies. Unfortunately one of her admin staff colleagues caught CV at the beginning, ended up with 9 weeks ITU treatment and finally sent home needing 24 hr care package after the damage inflicted. Was a fit healthy 51 year old beforehand but totally dependant now due to massive multi organ damage. Oddly he didnt even see patients like my neighbour.
You just make sure you take care out there.
You make sure you put your feet up and relax a little, today must have been a rollercoaster for you and yours, with the shares and Covid test (my mom had one pre-op last week - not nice) to think over. Im sure you'll have plenty to talk about tonight at home and the tele wont be getting switched on for long. Am hugely pleased for you, i really am, stuff of dreams.
All the guys will be more than glad to see you Alcestos, the group email we have has been buzzing with your news today. If you drop me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org i'll put you in touch with the group email we all use, quite a few of the regulars on there, and we can let you have the details of hotel, dates times etc. Tend to go for the mid week meets as the travels easier given we come from alll corners of the UK, some retired but some not, we all just shuffle work around to suit.
As you say, thoughts to the placebo people on the trial, especially the three families who have lost somebody, that must be a terrible decision for medical staff to have to make and carry, truly heartbreaking and an unreal burden placed on already burdended shoulders. You all deserve our upmost respect and im greatly looking forward to buying you a glass of your favourite.
Know what you mean about bio companies, always a leaning towards failing rather than a success story if on the front edge of science, so one for those with expert knowledge like yourself to go with. I liked the COPD potential, have a relative with a serious problem with that, and almost everybody seems to have asthma these days it seems so worth a small punt to me but not the full piggy bank. Am really chuffed for you with that though. Must also be very satisfying from a professional point of view to see the 'real' win of peoples outcomes being changed and lives saved.
Good luck with the covid test, i know your no dafty so will have done all you can to reduce your own exposure as much as possible, fingers crossed for you and all your colleagues on the ward that you get the negative result you fully deserve.
Well done on sng, you've pulled a blinder there.
Just sold my 'punt' and now sitting on a free ride with whats left.
Fantastic result for you with 700k, am well pleased for you, must have been tough keeping the faith with that amount invested as they went back to 35p, but what an outcome.
