  • Global Analysis of Truncated RNA Ends Reveals New Insights into Ribosome Stalling in Plants

    High-throughput approaches for profiling the 5′ ends of RNA degradation intermediates on a genome-wide scale are frequently applied to analyze and validate cleavage sites guided by microRNAs (miRNAs). However, the complexity of the RNA degradome other than miRNA targets is currently largely uncharacterized, and this limits the application of RNA degradome studies. We conducted a global ...

  • Controlling Stack Emissions in the Wood Products Industry & Wood Fired Boilers

    Electrostatic precipitation has been a reliable technology since the early 1900's. Originally developed to abate serious smoke nuisances, the manufacturers of zinc, copper, and lead quickly found electric gas cleaning a cost efficient way to recover valuable product carried out of the stacks from furnace operations. Today electrostatic precipitators are found mainly on large power plants, cement ...

  • Case study - Spindle utilities module

    Business Situation The existing method of tracking utility usage at these industrial laundries was highly manual, unreliable, and time consuming. Total utility consumption from bills was entered into large spreadsheets and analyzed over periods that were often 3 months or more in arrears. The report merely told managers what they already knew—they had overspent on natural gas; ...
