Solar-powered glass panels are used in the construction of a greenhouse at an eco-tourism facility in Japan

Posted by Nick Spencer on November 12, 2021

In Japan, an electrically conductive glass will be used in the construction of a strawberry greenhouse. ClearVue Technologies of Australia has been awarded the contract to build a strawberry greenhouse as part of the Aqua Ignis Hot Springs project in Sendai City's Fujitsuka neighborhood. The project is expected to be completed by the end of the year. ClearVue Technologies is in charge of the implementation of the project. An estimated 333m2 will be covered by a total of 187 ClearVue glass panels, with the fabrication process taking approximately 12 weeks.

Using tempered glass, ClearVue's glass technology incorporates solar photovoltaic cells around the perimeter of an insulated glass unit (IGU) which is made of tempered glass to provide energy. The photovoltaic glazing provided by ClearVue will also contribute to the environmental credentials of the Aqua Ignis project, with the panels on the greenhouse expected to generate approximately 8573 kWh of renewable energy per year, according to the company's regional modeling. In addition to being the first order from a Japanese licensed distributor, it has the potential to lead to larger future orders from the same distributor if the relationship continues.

INSULATED GLASS UNIT - Echo Tuff
In addition to being centered on a natural sodium chloride/bicarbonate hot spring, this project has the potential to develop into a major tourist destination in the region, with visitors being able to enjoy a strawberry garden as part of their experience.

According to Executive Chairman Victor Rosenberg, the Aqua Ignis greenhouse project in Sendai is an excellent starting point for ClearVue distributor Tomita because it provides invaluable insight into the installation and technical nuances of the ClearVue product before Tomita embarks on larger-scale greenhouse projects throughout the Japanese market. Additional marketing and promotion for both Tomita and ClearVue will be carried out as a result of the project's high profile, highlighting not only the benefits of the ClearVue product but also its adaptability to a wide range of application situations as a result of its adaptability.

Mr. Hiraaki Tomita, President of Tomita Technologies Ltd., stated in his comments on the Aqua Ignis greenhouse project that the company was "extremely pleased" to have been able to specify the ClearVue product for use in this high-profile health-focused tourism project in Sendai. The addition of the ClearVue system to the strawberry greenhouse roof, despite the fact that the project's objectives are unique, further enhances the project's distinctiveness while also improving the project's environmental credentials. Our team is extremely excited to be collaborating with ClearVue on this project, which will be our first time working together.

Vulture safe painkiller

Veterinary Painkiller Second Vulture-Safe Identified! Tolfenamic Acid

9th September 2021

In 2003, the veterinary use of diclofenac to treat cattle was discovered to be the cause of catastrophic vulture declines across South Asia. There was an urgent need to identify alternative, safe NSAIDs for veterinary use. The NSAID meloxicam was tested in 2006 and found to be both safe to vultures and effective in treating cattle. Unfortunately, various other NSAIDs have also been tested since then and so far all have been shown to be toxic to vultures. Therefore, it is hugely significant that a systematic safety testing study led by the Indian Veterinary Research Institute (IVRI) with the Bombay Natural History Society (BNHS) and the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB) has identified tolfenamic acid as the second confirmed vulture-safe NSAID after meloxicam.

A total of 38 wild-caught Himalayan Griffon Vultures, along with single captive White-rumped and Long-billed Vultures from the conservation breeding population, were given doses of tolfenamic acid by oral gavage at the maximum possible level likely to be encountered by birds feeding on carcasses in the wild. This was calculated based on concentrations of diclofenac found in cattle carcasses in India, which showed that vets and livestock owners routinely give doses of this drug much higher than the recommended level. In addition, four Himalayan Griffons were also fed buffalo meat from animals given double the recommended dose of tolfenamic acid just prior to death. Although two of the Himalayan Griffons given the extremely high dose by gavage died, all other birds survived without an increase in uric acid levels in the blood, which is the usual sign of kidney failure caused by NSAID poisoning. These findings show that tolfenamic acid is safe to wild vultures at levels of the drug that they are likely to be exposed to.

Dr Chandra Mohan, Scientist of IVRI and the lead investigator of the study said “Every painkiller available has slightly different properties, and the vets often complained of not having a second choice of NSAIDs. But we are very pleased to report that tolfenamic acid been found as a second safe NSAID drug.”

Dr Vibhu Prakash, Principal scientist and vulture programme Director of BNHS explained “by testing first on the less threatened Himalayan Griffon Vultures, we could establish the comparative safety of the drug. We then also tested it on the most threatened species held at the breeding centre at Pinjore, Haryana.”

The results of this study are reported in an IVRI report, while a pre-print publication, entitled “Experimental safety testing shows that the NSAID tolfenamic acid is not toxic to Gyps vultures in India at concentrations likely to be encountered in cattle carcasses” is freely available.

Dr A M Pawde, Incharge & Dr M. Karikalan, Scientist Centre for Wildlife, IVRI said “IVRI is particularly pleased to help identify this safe alternative for veterinarians, and it is important that this information is made available quickly, to avoid use of other more toxic alternatives (for the vultures) becoming popular in veterinary use.”  They added “Tolfenamic acid does have certain properties which make it slightly more similar to diclofenac in its ability to reduce fever as well as inflammation, and this may be important in being taken up more widely by vets across the country.”

Dr. Triveni Dutt, the Director of ICAR-Indian Veterinary Research Institute commented “this is good news for vulture conservation and can help decision-makers to take important steps towards banning the NSAIDs which are proven to be toxic, such as aceclofenac and ketoprofen.”

Tolfenamic acid is already licensed and produced by a number of different Indian manufacturers, being out of patent, and similarly priced to other drugs.

Professor Rhys Green of Cambridge University UK, and Chair of the SAVE consortium said “After sixteen years and considerable effort in safety testing NSAIDs on vultures we have found a second vulture-safe NSAID for use on cattle. This is important and welcome news. It will reduce the pressure to use toxic alternatives such as aceclofenac, ketoprofen, flunixin and nimesulide, which are still available and legally used in the region. Veterinary use of all of these toxic drugs should be banned immediately.”

He added “So this is highly significant, and good news for vulture conservation, but only if it helps decision-makers to take more urgently needed action to remove licenses for similar drugs that are proven to be toxic, such as aceclofenac and ketoprofen. Neighbouring Bangladesh has earlier this year taken this important and commendable step to extend local ketoprofen bans to national bans, and if India can do this for aceclofenac and ketoprofen, this will be real progress.”
