Twenty companies create over 50% of global single-use plastic waste, Australia leads: Study


Just twenty companies are responsible for producing over half of all single-use plastic waste in the world, pushing the already worsening climate crisis. The new Plastic Waste-Makers Index ranks Exxon Mobil, Dow Chemicals, and China's Sinopec as the biggest producer of plastic waste polymers, together with generating 16 per cent of global waste worldwide.

While global companies are among the biggest producers of plastic waste, in terms of countries, Australia produces nearly 59 kg of single-use plastic waste per person in 2019, the highest in the world.

Most of these companies are based in Asia, Europe, North America, Latin America, and the Middle East, with Exxon Mobil leading the charts as the biggest polluter contributing 5.9 million tonnes to the world's waste. Meanwhile, US-based Dow Chemicals created nearly 5.5 million tonnes of plastic waste followed by Sinopec's 5.3 million tonnes.

Single-use plastic and India

The Environment Ministry had in March unveiled new draft rules to ban several categories of single-use plastic prohibiting their manufacturing, use, sale, imports, and handling. The draft Plastic Waste Management (Amendment) Rules, 2021 is proposed to be implemented in three stages and to reach full execution by 2022.

In the first phase that begins in September, the Centre proposes that plastic carry bags made from no-woven plastic should not be less than 60-240 microns in thickness. The second phase that will commence from January 2022 will see a complete ban on six categories of such plastic and in the third phase, the list will further grow by July 2022.

The draft rules define single-use plastics as “a plastic commodity intended to be used once for the same purpose before being disposed of or recycled”.

Andhra Pradesh launches new policy to double its oxygen manufacturing capacity

Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy has unveiled a new Andhra Pradesh Industrial Gases and Medical Oxygen Manufacturing Policy 2021-22 to double the state's oxygen manufacturing capacity. 

The main aim of the policy is to increase Andhra Pradesh's oxygen manufacturing capacity from the existing 360 metric tonnes (MT) capacity to 700 MT  by refurbishing sick units for producing oxygen. 

Key Features

•The Andhra Pradesh Industrial Gases and Medical Oxygen Manufacturing Policy aims to set up a total of at least 50 Pressure Swing Adsorption (PSA) oxygen plants.

•The important features of the policy include that it aims to distribute the manufacturing across the state by zoning methodology.

•The policy incentives allow subsidizing Capex (30 per cent or up to 30 lakh/MT) and Opex (power subsidy up to INR 2 per unit) of the unit allowing them to maintain profitability during these uncertain times.

•The policy aims to support all the technologies including PSA (pressure swing adsorption), Liquid Oxygen, and Helium Mixed Oxygen (Heliox).

•It aims to revive the sick PSA units to provide a quick boost to the state's oxygen manufacturing capacity.

Term of the Policy

The Andhra Pradesh Industrial Gases and Medical Oxygen Manufacturing Policy will be effective for 1 year from April 15, 2021

The period for commissioning PSA, Lox and Heliox includes within 6 months, 18 months and 24 months respectively from the date of sanction.

Background

Andhra Pradesh has reported a total of 21,320 new coronavirus infections and 98 fatalities in the last 24 hours.

The state government has added black fungus or mucormycosis to its Aarogyasri scheme to fight against the pandemic. 
The state has introduced an Aarogyasri Card to provide financial aid to the needy who are not able to foot their medical bills. 

Antarctica headed towards climate tipping point by 2060: All you need to know

A new study published in the journal Nature shows that the Antarctica ice sheet could reach a tipping point by about 2060.

This means if the global greenhouse emissions continue at the current rate, the Antarctica Ice Sheet (AIS) will cross a critical threshold leading to an irreversible global sea-level rise.

Antarctica’s Tipping Point

The Antarctica Ice Sheet, known to be Earth’s largest ice reservoir, is covered by several protective ice shelves. These ice shelves are grounded below sea level on the bedrock that is sloped inward to the center of the continent.

This inward slope exposes the ice shelves to warm ocean water flowing under them that can lead to thinning of their lower edges, thereby destabilizing and breaking up.

The breaking up of ice shelves leads to towering ice cliffs that are unstable and when they collapse, they accelerate the rate of ice flow into the oceans.

As per the computer model based on the physics of ice sheets used in the study, it was found that global warming above 2 degrees Celsius will lead to a steep increase in ice loss in Antarctica, especially through the ginormous Thwaites Glacier.

The Thwaites Glacier is equivalent to the side of Britain or Florida. It is a part of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet (WAIS) and a deep focus of study among scientists in the US and UK.

Currently, the world is on track to exceed 2 degrees Celsius with the current policies and emissions rate. Countries fulfilling the Paris Agreement targets is one way to drastically reduce the rising sea level.

Scientists fear that reversing ice loss would not be possible then and by 2100, the sea level rise would be 10 times faster than today.

Sea level rise can explode by 2100

•A new study by David Pollard, Robert DeConto, and Richard Alley shows that sea-level rise could most likely explode by 2150, exceeding 2.3 inches (6 cm) per year if the current emissions are not curbed by 2100.

•By 2300, sea-level rise is expected to be 10 times faster than today if countries fail to meet the Paris Agreement targets.

•Three major pathways to meet the Paris Agreement require keeping global warming under 1.5 degrees Celsius to 2 degrees Celsius, remove sufficient carbon dioxide from the air to lower the temperature further, and cut global emissions by 50 per cent by 2030.

•The current policies would only help in cutting global emissions by 1 per cent by 2030.

Mission ‘reduce emissions quickly’

As the countries gear up for the Paris Agreement to be held in November and deliberate on a Climate Action plan, the ocean and polar scientists have three important messages to be noted:

•Every fraction of a degree counts.

•Allowing global warming to exceed 2 degrees Celsius can leave the coastlines submerged underwater. Technological fixes will not be able to reverse the devastating impacts.

•Polices must adopt a long view as these can have irreversible damage to Antarctica’s ice sheet and the world at large.

As more data comes to light about Antarctica, scientists say that it is becoming evident that this continent will determine the fate of the planet.

The United States passes anti-Asian hate crimes bill; Check details

The United States House on May 18, 2021, passed the bill to counter a rise in the anti-Asian Hate Crimes amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

The measure required two-thirds of the Chambers' support and was passed in a 364-62 vote with 62 Republicans voting against the bill.

The President of the US Joe Biden has already extended and voiced his support for the measure and now it has passed the House, the bill will be cleared for his signature. The passage of the bill has come in the view of growing hate crimes against the Asian-American community in the US.

Rep. Judy Chu, Chair of the Congressional Asian-Pacific American Caucas stated that after a year of the Asian American community crying out for help, Congress will take a historic action to pass long-overdue hate crimes legislations and send the COVID-19 Hate Crimes Act to US President’s desk.

COVID-19 Hate Crimes Act: What will change with the new bill?

• The bill passed to prevent hate crimes against Asians will create a new position at the Justice Department to speed up the review of the potential COVID-19 related hate crimes and incidents reported at the federal, state, and local levels.

• It will also direct the departments of Justice and Health and Human Services to work with the community-based organisations for issuing guidance raising awareness of the hate crimes during the pandemic.

• The newly passed bill will also require the US attorney general to issue the guidance to work with the local and state law enforcement agencies for establishing online reporting of them.

Increasing hate crimes against Asians in the US:

The recent bill was introduced in light of the increasing number of crimes against the Asian-American community.

The passage of the anti-Asian hate crimes bill has come less than 2 months after a gunman had killed eight people in three Asian-owned spas in the greater Atlanta. Six of the victims were women of Asian descent.

On May 18, the US House also planned to pass a separate resolution condemning the massacre in Georgia on March 16, 2021.

Background:

The legislation, known as the COVID-19 Hate Crimes Act, was introduced by Democratic Sen. Mazie Hirono of Hawaii and Democratic-Republican Grace Meng of New York. In April 2021, the legislation passed the Senate by an overwhelming vote of 94-1.

Customs (Import of Goods at Concessional Rate of Duty) Amendment Rules, 2021: IGCR, 2017 Customs Rules changed

The Government of India recently brought changes to the Customs (Imports of Goods at Concessional Rate of Duty) Rules, IGCR 2017 to boost trade facilitation. This was done through the Customs (Import of Goods at Concessional Rate of Duty) Amendment Rules, 2021.

What are the major rules changed?

The absence of the new rules had constrained Indian industries, especially, the MSMEs. It mainly affected those that did not have an in-house manufacturing facility. Earlier, the concessional customs duty on imports was not provided to those who did not have an in-house manufacturing facility. Now, under the new rules, they can now import goods at concessional rates, get the job done in other manufacturing units. However, this has still not been extended to certain sectors such as gold, diamond, precious metals.

The new rules will now allow the import of capital goods at concessional customs duty. Capital goods are physical assets used by a company to manufacture products and services for later use. They are not finished goods. But are used to make finished goods. Tools, machinery, building, equipment are capital goods.

The new rules basically lay down the procedure and manner in which an importer can avail the benefit of concessional customs duty on import of goods for domestic production.

IGCR rules, 2017

These rules are for the importers who can avail the benefit of exemption notification issued under Section 25 of Customs Act, 1962.  The act empowers the Union Government of India to grant exemptions from payment of customs duties.

Biological E will manufacture Johnson and Johnson COVID Vaccine in India

Biological E is to produce Johnson and Johnson COVID-19 vaccine along with its own vaccine. This is to boost the overall vaccine production of the country.

Background

A new Vaccine partnership was unveiled at the first Quad Summit. The four Quad countries namely India, Australia, US and Japan decided to pool their resources. They also decided to roll out 1 billion COVID-19 vaccines by 2022.  According to the plan, the United States International Development Finance Corporation is to assist the Biological E.

What is the plan?

The Biological E of India is to produce 600 million Johnson and Johnson Vaccine doses annually. It is to produce the Johnson and Johnson Vaccine along with its own vaccine. However, the manufacturing units of the vaccines will be different. Also, the Johnson and Johnson vaccine production is to be funded by the US.

Biological E has plans to produce 75 million to 80 million doses of its own vaccine in Hyderabad. The drug was developed by Baylor College of Medicine in Houston.

Johnson and Johnson Vaccine

It has been approved by United States Food and Drug Administration and the World Health Organisation. In India, Johnson and Johnson have sought permission to conduct clinical trials.

It is an adenovirus vector-based COVID-19 vaccine. It is a single-dose vaccine. The other adeno virus-based vaccines such as Moderna and Pfizer are two-dose vaccines.

Current Scenario

According to COVAX, India is unlikely to resume its major exports of COVID-19 vaccines till October 2021. This is because it is diverting its shots for domestic use.

SPOT (Scalable and Portable Testing)-New COVID-19 Saliva Test invented using RT-LAMP Technology

The US scientists have invented a new COVID-19 Saliva Testing method called SPOT. SPOT is Scalable and Portable Testing.

About SPOT

SPOT was invented by a research team from the Carle Illinois College of Medicine. The SPOT gives COVID-19 test results in thirty minutes. The cost of the device is 78 USD. Apart from these the reagents and other testing devices are estimated to cost 6 to 7 USD. The device can be operated by anyone with minimal training.

The test is very much similar to that of the RT-PCR. But it uses Reverse Transcriptase Loop-Mediated Isothermal Amplification (RT-LAMP). However, it does not need complex machinery or expertise. It can be completed quickly and is more accurate.

RT-Loop Mediated Isothermal Amplification

RT-LAMP is a one-step nucleic acid amplification method. It is used to multiply specific sequences of RNA. This technology is considered as an alternative to RT-PCR as it is much cheaper and easier. RT-LAMP test first makes DNA from the RNA samples. This conversion is made by reverse transcriptase enzyme. This DNA is called cDNA. Now, this cDNA will be amplified for virus detection.

The only difference between RT-PCR and RT-LAMP is that RT-LAMP uses four LAMP Primers. Primers are short fragments of nucleic acids.

Outcome

The researchers tested 104 clinical samples using SPOT. Of these, it accurately identified twenty-eight of thirty COVID-19 positive samples and 73 out of 74 COVID-19 negative samples.

About new COVID-19 tests

Every day ten to fifteen new COVID-19 tests are launched in the market. These tests claim to be quick. However, none of these quick antigen tests are reliable as that of RT-PCR.

 

WWF on Snow Leopard: More than 70% of habitat unexplored

Snow leopard guide: habitat, diet and conservation - Discover Wildlife

The World Wildlife Fund recently claimed that more than 70% of snow Leopard habitats are unexplored. The organisation recently released its report “A spatially explicit review of the state of knowledge in the snow leopard range”.

Key Findings of the report

Most of the snow leopard researches have been conducted by Nepal, India and China followed by Mongolia and Pakistan. There could be only four thousand snow leopards left in the world. They are facing continuous threats due to increased habitat loss and degradation, conflict with communities and poaching.

Why only 70%? Why is 100% Exploration not possible?

As snow leopards live in rugged terrain, it is highly difficult to conduct researches on snow leopard and their habitat. That is why, till date their entire habitat remains unexplored.

First Snow Leopard Survey

On International Snow Leopard Day (October 24), India launched the Snow Leopard Population Assessment in 2019. However, the survey is yet to be launched. Several state governments have launched local surveys such as Uttarkhand.

Snow Leopard conservation

  • IUCN: Vulnerable
  • Wildlife (Protection) Act, 1972: Schedule I
  • CITES: Appendix I

Conservation of Snow Leopard

GSLEP: GSLEP is Global Snow Leopard and Ecosystem Protection Programme. It was launched by twelve snow leopard range countries such as India, Nepal, China, Bhutan, Mongolia, Pakistan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Afghanistan and Russia.

SECURE Himalaya: It is a Global Environment Facility-United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) funded project.

Snow Leopards in India

In India, snow leopards are found in Arunachal Pradesh, Sikkim, Uttarakhand, Himachal Pradesh, Jammu and Kashmir. These regions contribute to 5% of the global snow leopard range. The government is running Project Snow Leopard since 2009.
