As a great corporate citizen, the Aiken ORR plant con- ducts neighborhood roadside clean- ups, manages its site to restore the Longleaf Pine Savannah Habitat, and provides on-site STEM education for school children through Bridgestone Environmental Education Program. Bridgestone built its first giant off- road radial tire manufacturing plant in North America in Trenton, South Carolina. The 1.5-million-square- foot manufacturing facility employs 450 people and began production of large and ultra-large mining and heavy-equipment radial tires in 2014. In total, Bridgestone has eight LEED-certified locations including both South Carolina tire plants and another one of its manufacturing plants in Warren County, Tennessee. The Warren County tire manufactur- ing plant began operations in 1990 and first earned the LEED certification in 2008, becoming the first tire plant globally to achieve this designation. Zinkan Enterprises Announces New Division, ChemREADY Zinkan Enterprises Inc., a special- ty chemicals company, launched ChemREADY, a new division with the sole focus of applying technology and expertise to solving water and waste- water challenges. Placing the water and wastewa- ter treatment teams under a single entity allows the ChemREADY team to reimagine water and wastewater treatment chemical and equipment solutions, supplies and services, originally developed within Zinkan. A dedicated unit also enables the Zinkan chemicals business to better leverage its industry partners to bet- ter serve their clients — by combining chemical and equipment expertise under one organizational structure. "Our Source-To-Discharge and Total Service Management treatment programs allow our customers to de- sign, improve, and validate their own water treatment processes thereby enhancing their own businesses by reducing water consumption and overall operational costs," said Timo- thy Drake, vice president of marketing and product development for Zinkan. "We're excited about working with our customers to provide the highest level of clarity in an industry that oth- erwise presents customers with chal- lenging decisions — how to properly treat water from the moment it enters a facility to the point of discharge." In addition, ChemREADY partner- ships allow clients to take full advan- tage of their chemical knowledge and engineered water and wastewater treatment solutions. "For more than 30 years, Zinkan Enterprises has grown and evolved within the specialty chemicals indus- try, giving us unique insight to the pain points faced by our chemical and equipment clients," said Greg Ott, president of Zinkan Enterpris- es. "The new ChemREADY Division will be a fully dedicated and focused group of professionals providing the highest level of products and services for our customers in the water and wastewater treatment industries." Registration Opens for AIMEX Sydney is gearing up for what will be one of the most important events of a decade when Australia's largest and longest running mining exhibi- tion and conference opens in August. Registrations for Asia-Pacific's Inter- national Mining Exhibition (AIMEX) 2019 edition are now open with more than 6,000 mining industry profes- sionals and an additional 2,000 ex- hibitor personnel set to take over Syd- ney's Showgrounds across three days from August 27-29. For the second year, a free-to- attend multistream mining confer- ence will be embedded within the exhibition providing visitors with a unique opportunity to hear from mining innovators and disruptors at the same venue where the tech- nology is on show. The AIMEX Conference, man- aged by Davey Bickford Enaex, will focus on key themes surrounding the changing of mindsets and how to survive the impact of future tech- nological, social and environmental changes. The conference will also look at the rise of automation and robotics and the use of AR and VR to enhance safety training for staff among other topics. In a first for AIMEX, five of Aus- tralia's biggest mining companies will also come together to create the AIMEX Mining Pavilion. Centenni- al Coal, Glencore, Mach Energy and Whitehaven Coal will join Yancoal Australia to outline their own enter- prises, connect with suppliers and drive their own recruitment strategies. AIMEX organizers are expecting more than 400 exhibitors to showcase services in Sydney.
