Certification validates the interoperability between the Stonebranch Universal Automation Center and the SAP S/4HANA business suite.

ALPHARETTA, Ga., Jan. 14, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Stonebranch, a leading provider of service orchestration and automation solutions, announced today that its Universal Connector for SAP has achieved SAP certification as a direct integration with SAP S/4HANA.

The SAP Integration and Certification Center (SAP ICC) has certified that the Universal Connector for SAP integrates with SAP S/4HANA using standard integration technologies. SAP S/4HANA is a next-generation business suite, built for the SAP HANA platform, with on-premises and cloud deployment options. It's designed to act as the digital core, helping customers drive digital transformation across their entire organizations, taking advantage of the award-winning, role-based user experience of SAP Fiori(®).

"By adding the S/4HANA certification to our growing list of SAP certifications, the Stonebranch Universal Automation Center (UAC) operates as a central orchestrator of all automated jobs both inside and outside of the SAP ecosystem," said Giuseppe Damiani, CEO at Stonebranch. "Our long list of customers who use SAP S/4HANA, SAP ECC, and SAP Fiori applications are thrilled that they can centrally manage all automated processes across their entire SAP footprint. That said, they quickly realize that they can create orchestrated workflows that automate SAP applications alongside any other non-SAP application as well."

It allows SAP end-users to manage SAP business processes and background jobs, which enables centralized control and visibility, improved error handling, and the ability to add SAP solutions to more complex workflows that include non-SAP solutions.

CREWING ONLINE'S GLOBAL SEAFARER SALARY INDEX (GSSI) OFFERS CREW A GOOD SALARY REFERENCE

Quarterly-released index ensures seafarers are paid on par with market standards

SINGAPORE, Jan. 17, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Seafaring as a career option has been significantly diluted by the ongoing pandemic. Global news coverage revolving around the crew change crisis and related issues resulted in many aspiring seafarers re-evaluate their decisions. As a first step to entice aspiring seafarers to reconsider their options, salaries are key. Candidates looking for employment would naturally expect to be paid on par with competition. However, the task of finding out can be challenging.

Companies spend substantially on employees' salaries and benefits combined. How an organisation compensates its most important asset has a huge impact on the overall team performance, as well as the industry at large. Marine Online's recruitment arm, Crewing Online, released a quarterly salary index to help employers stay on target to attract and retain the best talents.

Edmund Chik, Marine Online's Deputy Chief Operating Officer, remarked, "Compensations have an enormous impact on company performance. Hence, more focus should be invested in compensation strategies to remain on target to attract and retain the best talents. Our GSSI is a comprehensive data set that provides an understanding of prevailing pay rates and trends."

"To ensure authenticity and reliability, they are collated from both global seafarer agencies as well as seafarers' disclosure. Our quarterly-released GSSI will help shipowners, manning agencies and seafarers identify salary discrepancies to ensure all parties are updated on the salary trends. Above all, it helps rekindle seafarers' liking to their career option."

The company has recently assisted a Chinese shipowner assemble an Indonesian crew - taking care of all readying procedures including transportation. Crew customisation service is also available at Marine Online.

EcoFlow Launches the DELTA Pro, its Pioneering Portable Power Station, in Europe

As the sixth most-funded project ever in the history of Kickstarter, the DELTA Pro broke records to raise over EUR10.6 million

PARDUBICE, Czech Republic, Jan. 17, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- EcoFlow, a portable power and renewable energy solutions company, has launched the industry-leading DELTA Pro portable home battery in Europe. Originally a Kickstarter campaign, it smashed records to become the most-funded tech project at the time and still ranks sixth among all projects to date.

With a base capacity of 3.6kWh and expandable to 25kWh, the DELTA Pro is the industry's first portable home battery and can provide multiple days' worth of backup energy to families in the case of emergencies. In September 2021, EcoFlow launched the DELTA Max and the DELTA mini in Europe, both of which are designed to offer backup power for shorter blackout periods.

"DELTA Pro's highly successful Kickstarter campaign overwhelmingly demonstrates the consumer desire for portable clean energy power and storage solutions," said Thomas Chan, R&D Director at EcoFlow. "Reliable access to power is front-of-mind for consumers, as rising cases of extreme weather and power outages emphasize the need for greater preparation and sustainable power sources. EcoFlow strives to ensure that consumers and their families feel ready and secure, and it is this very purpose that inspires us to innovate and provide even safer and more reliable power solutions."

Reliable and Renewable: The Ultimate Emergency Power Solution

Providing a dependable power solution that enables disaster preparedness lies at the heart of EcoFlow's DELTA series. "EcoFlow is determined to take on a bigger role in disaster preparedness, not just by providing resilient technology but also by giving people the proper knowledge and tools so that they can always have peace of mind," said Chan.

This purpose has clearly resonated with consumers. When the company launched a crowdfunding campaign for the DELTA Pro on Kickstarter in July 2021, it raised $1 million (approx. EUR0.84 million) within the first 10 minutes. At the end of the two-month campaign, over $12 million (approx. EUR10.6 million) had been raised, breaking Kickstarter's then-record by over $4.3 million (approx. EUR3.8 million) to become the most-funded tech project at the time. Today, the Delta PRO crowdfunding campaign still ranks sixth among all Kickstarter projects.

In November, TIME named the DELTA Pro as one of the 100 Best Inventions of 2021, which honors innovations "that are making the world better, smarter, and even a bit more fun." Recognized in the Sustainability category, EcoFlow was noted for its pioneering product development.

As the first product of its kind, the EcoFlow DELTA Pro represents a significant step towards the company's ambitious vision of empowering sustainability by providing a robust, low-carbon, and renewable energy solution for individuals, households, and industries alike.

About EcoFlow

EcoFlow is a portable power and renewable energy solutions company. Since its founding in 2017, EcoFlow has provided peace-of-mind power to customers in over 85 markets through its DELTA and RIVER product lines of portable power stations and eco-friendly accessories.

Eastman to invest up to $1 billion to accelerate circular economy through building world's largest molecular plastics recycling facility in Franc

PARIS, Jan. 17, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- This morning, French President Emmanuel Macron and Eastman Board Chair and CEO Mark Costa will jointly announce Eastman's plan to invest up to $1 billion in a material-to-material molecular recycling facility in France. This facility would use Eastman's polyester renewal technology to recycle up to 160,000 metric tonnes annually of hard-to-recycle plastic waste that is currently being incinerated.

The investment would recycle enough plastic waste annually to fill Stade de France national football stadium 2.5 times, while also creating virgin-quality material with a significantly lower carbon footprint. Eastman is the largest investor at this year's "Choose France" event, which is focused on attracting foreign investment to France.

This multi-phase project includes units that would prepare mixed plastic waste for processing, a methanolysis unit to depolymerize the waste, and polymer lines to create a variety of first-quality materials for specialty, packaging, and textile applications. Eastman also plans to establish an innovation center for molecular recycling that would enable France to sustain a leadership role in the circular economy. This innovation center would advance alternative recycling methods and applications to curb plastic waste incineration and leave fossil feedstock in the ground. The plant and innovation center would be expected to be operational by 2025, creating employment for approximately 350 people and leading to an additional 1,500 indirect jobs in recycling, energy and infrastructure.

A circular economy is key to addressing the global plastic waste crisis and the climate crisis, which have both been at the center of attention in France and throughout Europe. This long-term partnership between France and Eastman will contribute to the EU achieving its sustainability goals, by reducing carbon emissions and enabling a circular economy. France has demonstrated tremendous leadership by recognizing the vital role of molecular recycling and supporting investments in innovation.

Eastman's project has also garnered support from an impressive roster of global brands who share its commitment to solving the world's plastic waste problem and view molecular recycling as a pivotal tool for achieving circularity. LVMH Beauty, The Estée Lauder Companies, Clarins, Procter & Gamble, L'Oréal and Danone are leading the way by signing letters of intent for multiyear supply agreements from this facility.

Eastman's proven polyester renewal technology provides true circularity for hard-to-recycle plastic waste that remains in a linear economy today. This material is typically incinerated because it either cannot be mechanically recycled or must be downcycled with existing technology. This hard-to-recycle waste is broken down into its molecular building blocks and then reassembled to become first-quality material without any compromise in performance. Eastman's polyester renewal technology enables the potentially infinite value of materials by keeping them in production, lifecycle after lifecycle. With the technology's inherent efficiencies and the renewable energy sources available in France, materials can be produced with greenhouse gas emissions up to 80% less than traditional methods.

"Accelerating the transition to a circular economy is one of the main challenges in the years to come. Eastman's substantial investment in France demonstrates our country's willingness to embrace innovative technologies that will help us achieve our ecological and economic ambitions, by revolutionizing our country's plastics recycling capacities," said Barbara Pompili, French Minister for Ecological Transition. "France has always been at the forefront of this journey, and together with Eastman, is giving itself the means to achieve its ambitious plastics recycling targets set for 2025. We are very excited to welcome a company that has a 100-year history of innovation at a global scale and more than 30 years of molecular recycling experience."

Agnès Pannier-Runacher, French Delegate Minister for Industry stated, "Eastman's world-scale project will allow France to position itself as a European leader in new technologies for recycling and recovering plastic waste. This investment is the result of the ambitious approach to industrial reconquest led by the Government since 2017, which has enabled France to become the most attractive country in Europe from 2018 onward for industrial projects. With this project, which is an important step for our sovereignty, we are giving ourselves the means to achieve our ambitions in terms of ecological transition while creating sustainable jobs in manufacturing, infrastructure and energy. We look forward to developing this relationship with Eastman."

"The investment in France is a significant step forward in Eastman's strategy to accelerate a circular economy globally. Eastman is proud to partner with the French government to actively contribute to France's and the EU's bold commitments," Costa said. "France has demonstrated their commitment toward a sustainable future and Eastman has set similar, ambitious carbon and circular economy goals. The announcement today has been made possible thanks to the support of President Macron, the French government and its agency Business France, who have worked with impressive urgency to enable and incentivize this large and complex project. We look forward to working together for the long term and offer necessary innovations to recycle plastic waste and protect our planet for future generations.

"The plan to build the world's largest plastics recycling facility in France is an important part of our overall circular economy strategy," Costa added. "Today's announcement is a key milestone towards our commitment, and we expect to achieve additional milestones in the coming months, including agreements related to securing the plastic waste that will be raw material supply, securing government incentives, and the site location decision."

About Eastman: Founded in 1920, Eastman is a global specialty materials company that produces a broad range of products found in items people use every day.
