first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享The Salt Lake Tribune:Completing a shift to renewable energy, Kennecott Utah Copper will shut down its last coal-fired power plant in Magna, shrinking its carbon footprint by as much as 65% — a total of more than 1 million tons of carbon dioxide a year, according to its owners.Rio Tinto, Kennecott’s corporate parent, announced Wednesday that power to the copper producer will come from 1.5 million megawatt hours of renewable energy certificates purchased from Rocky Mountain Power, which will be primarily sourced from its Utah-allocated portfolio, including wind power generated in Wyoming.The move formalizes a transition that has been underway at Kennecott Utah Copper, which mines and processes copper ore at its vast industrial network on the west side of the Salt Lake Valley, for the past several years, according to spokesman Kyle Bennett.“This ensures we are offsetting the electrical demand we use across our Utah operations with certified renewable energy certificates,” Bennett said. “Rio Tinto wants to be carbon neutral by 2050. Every operation within the portfolio would have to look at ways to achieve that.”Kennecott’s 75-megawatt Unit 4, added in 1960 and idled for the past two years, is the last coal-fired power plant on Utah’s crowded Wasatch Front and perhaps the oldest in Utah.More: Good news for Salt Lake Valley’s air: Kennecott to close its last coal plant, shift to renewable energy Kennecott to close its last coal plant in Utah, switch to renewable energylast_img read more

first_img The 18-year-old has made 15 appearances in the Premier League this season while also featuring prominently in Arsenal’s Europa League and domestic cup campaigns under both Unai Emery and Mikel Arteta. He is mainly recognised as a winger but has also filled in a left-back in the absence of Kieran Tierney and Sead Kolasinac, who have both struggled with injuries. And Arteta has even suggested that Saka could have a future as a defender after a number of solid displays. Speaking after last month’s draw with Sheffield United, the Gunners boss said: “I think he could (have a future at left-back) because he’s willing to learn, he is applying himself big time he is someone that’s has never played (that position) before but he’s really trying to do it as well as possible. “You can see that he’s got many strengths to play in that position. Obviously he needs games, he needs experience and he needs to improve in some areas but that’s very good.” Read Also:2021 Africa Cup of Nations: Rohr monitoring Bukayo Saka ahead Eagles invitation Saka picked up an injury during the 0-0 draw with Burnley this month but is hoping to be available when Arsenal return to action against Newcastle on Sunday.

first_imgEverton boss Roberto Martinez insists his players are not “too nice” – but has stressed they need to wise up to opponents “trying to take advantage” with certain tactics. “It was a frustrating moment for me,” Martinez, quoted by the Liverpool Echo, said. “It’s not that we’re too nice, it’s that we’re a fair team. It’s important for us, though, to identity when people are playing with that and trying to take advantage. “We just need to make sure it doesn’t cost us. I don’t care about us using it but we need to know how not to get disadvantaged by it. “I’ll never compromise what we represent in terms of winning games. But if you have a player that wants to lay on the pitch and moan to the referee we shouldn’t stop the game. Mikel used that to his advantage and we need to be aware of that. “We should punish that sort of reaction and behaviour with penetrating football and using the players we have on the pitch. It’s a lesson to be learned. But it’s a learning curve.” The Spaniard was frustrated by an incident in Saturday’s 4-1 FA Cup quarter-final defeat at Arsenal which saw the Toffees, with Gunners midfielder Mikel Arteta on the turf claiming he was injured following a tackle from Seamus Coleman, opt to kick the ball out even though referee Mark Clattenburg had allowed play to continue. Martinez does not want his “fair” team emulating the antics of Arteta, who appeared to be unhurt, but is keen for them to learn from the episode. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

first_img0Shares0000United go into the clash with the Spanish side following a morale boosting win over the Reds that put them in pole position to secure second position in the English Premier League behind Manchester City.LONDON, United Kingdom, Mar 13 – Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has said that beating Sevilla in Tuesday’s Champions League last-16 second leg will be more important than their 2-1 league victory over rivals Liverpool.United go into the clash with the Spanish side following a morale boosting win over the Reds that put them in pole position to secure second position in the English Premier League behind Manchester City. Mourinho emphasised the need for his team to retain their dominance internationally after winning the Europa League last season.The first leg tie between the two teams finished in a goalless stalemate in Spain, and United will be confident that home advantage on Tuesday night will work in their favour.“Tomorrow is more important than the win over Liverpool because Saturday was a match for points that we still have 24 more points to discuss, 24 more points to try to finish in the top four, to try to finish third, to try to finish second if possible,” Mourinho told reporters on Monday.“But tomorrow and Saturday against Brighton are the matches where, in the end, you go to the next draw or you don’t go to the next draw. So, of course, knockout becomes more important than league matches.”The Portuguese manager also downplayed his side’s chances to contest the European title, telling the media that United is not among the best teams in the competition.He added: “I don’t think we are one of the best teams in the competition. But I think when a team arrives in the last eight, anything can happen.“I think when you are in the last 16; it looks really, really far. But when a team gets in the last eight, you start smelling semi-finals and I think when a team gets into the last eight, the feeling is, of course, you are among the best.“But anything can happen, so let’s see what happens tomorrow. I think tomorrow is a very difficult match.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more
