PRN: BCM-95® (Curcugreen®) Granted New Patent in Europe Wed, 10 Apr 2019 09:40:26 +0200 PR Newswire Turismo PR Newswire Turismo

BCM-95® (Curcugreen®) Granted New Patent in Europe

Arjuna's BCM-95® (Curcugreen®) expands stronghold in Europe with new patent validation


KERALA, India, April 10, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Arjuna Natural Ltd. has been granted a new patent in Europe for its applied technology of improving the bioavailability of curcumin in its BCM-95®(Curcugreen®) formulation and a leading product in its broad portfolio of natural ingredients.

BCM-95® (Curcugreen®) granted new patent in Europe

The new patent enables Arjuna to further expand its strong hold in 20 additional countries across Western and Eastern Europe. It is already a leading brand in the United States and is protected by 49 patents (14 in the US, 2 in Japan and 33 in European Countries) for composition and manufacturing processes of curcumin extract. The patented formulation provides biologically active curcumin with essential oil of turmeric. The 100% natural formulation is extensively backed by over 55 published studies worldwide and several on-go! ing studi es for its therapeutic activity on multiple health indications, making it unparalleled in the segment.

"The composition of BCM-95® (Curcugreen®) contains only turmeric based components and no synthetic or non-turmeric ingredients," says Benny Antony, PhD, Joint Managing Director for Arjuna. "This composition of turmeric delivers free curcumin into blood and is retained in the body for longer duration," notes Antony. 

This patent in effect helps to address much confusion in the market regarding curcumin absorption and oral bioavailability. The main problem of curcumin is that it is not absorbed nor retained well in the blood streams. Yet, the market has subsequently been flooded with curcumin products laden with synthetic additives in attempts to overcome the issue of bioavailability. Also it is observed that many brands are toll manufactured at production centers not complying to cGMP standards.

"Any supplement you put into your body should be both safe and effective," insists Antony. "Arjuna's BCM-95® (Curcugreen®) is wholly manufactured in its own facility under a fully automated cGMP complied continuous extraction plantâ€�”using only solar power. This has enabled Arjuna to triple its manufacturing capacity in Coimbatore, India to meet the growing demand for their brand of curcumin in the coming years.

The success of BCM-95® (Curcugreen®) has enabled Arjuna to rev up its marketing activities and cement its foothold in the European market as well as in the USA. "With the mobilization of our dedicated sales force we hope to increase our market reach significantly in the coming years." Says P.J Kunjachan, Chairman & Managing Director. BCM-95® (Curcugreen®) enjoys GRAS status as a pure and trusted brand for use in medical foods following a comprehensive review by a panel of qualified experts.

About Arjuna Natural Ltd.

For more than a quarter of a century Arjuna Natural Ltd. has been India's leading manufacturer of standardized spice & botanical extracts for food supplement industries dedicated firmly to ecofriendly practices. Established in 1992, the company has grown rapidly, with customers in 50 countries.

PRN: MFL and BE OPEN Celebrate Three Years of Cooperation Wed, 10 Apr 2019 09:20:49 +0200 PR Newswire Turismo PR Newswire Turismo

MFL and BE OPEN Celebrate Three Years of Cooperation


LONDON, April 10, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Three years ago, in March 2016, BE OPEN and the Mayor's Fund for London announced their first joined project. Since that time the cooperation between the two foundations has benefitted thousands of younger people across London.

The first MFL's programme supported by BE OPEN was 'Creativity Works.'  It was designed to improve access to employment for young Londoners from disadvantaged backgrounds. The initiative provides a major boost to 16-24 year-olds across the city in the arts sector, benefitting young people through transferable skills, with the ultimate purpose to help them find a job or return to education or training. It uses the creative industries to increase confidence, skills and employability, offering personal development projects across fashion, film, music, digital multimedia, community arts and product design. It is an ongoing programme.

Same year, the MFL and BE OPEN launched 'London Curriculum' for primary schools, an educational initiative set to revitalise teaching and learning across the city. Tailor-made specifically for primary school children, and spanning a range of arts and science disciplines, this programme aimed to reinvigorate core academic subjects with a local dimension, reverting to London as a source of inspiration. This not only affords children the perspective to approach unfamiliar subjects through a familiar point of reference, it also enriches their knowledge and appreciation for the global significance of their home city.

In 2017, the City Pitch Leadership Programme launched across secondary and primary London schools. It offered hundreds of schoolchildren the chance to develop important leadership, teamwork, planning and presentational skills. By tasking children with conceiving and developing a community business idea and then pitching it at City Hall to a 'Dragon's Den' style panel in a bid for essential funding, City Pitch aimed to encourage and help young Londoners step up as leaders, learn new skills and make a real difference in their communities. All projects presented tangible ideas to make London an even better place to live for the next generation. Every school was awarded £1,500 to develop and get their ideas off the ground, along with sound advice from the panel.

The MFL and BE OPEN has also had two children's' festivals at City Hall to celebrate their achievements in the programmes above. At one of the celebrations, Children's Commissioner for England Anne Longfield, OBE, said: "It's so important that children have a voice and are heard by the policy and law makers in the UK who make decisions about them… This puts young people into decision-making positions and encourages organisations and businesses to hear what they have to say."

On the same occasion, Joanne McCartney, Deputy Mayor of London, thanked BE OPEN and its founder Elena Baturina for support, and said, "London schools outperform those from other parts of the country with some of our most deprived areas providing good education, employment opportunities and housing for their most disadvantaged residents. I'm very proud of that and of all the hard work put in by teachers, students, their families and supporters. And also of the boroughs, community organisations and charities…that help children realise the potential a global city like London has to offer. But there's much more to be done and we won't rest until every child in London has the opportunity to make the most of their potential. That's why activities like the London Children's Festi! val are s o important."

Elena Baturina, Mayor's Fund for London Trustee and Founder of BE OPEN, said: "We are honoured and excited to have been working with the Mayor's fund on so many amazing initiatives that help young people have their say in shaping the future. At BE OPEN we genuinely believe in the transformational potential of younger generations. The whole ethos of BE OPEN is about inspiring and encouraging people to find creative ways of improving their environments, helping them to make a real change to our lives."

Furthermore, the necessity for stowing and preserving testers of tissue for investigation and analysis of medicinal amenities and research laboratory are growing. This sequentially is generating the demand. Yet, the most important shortcoming in the systems is a number of restricted objects for frozen unit process in the tissue analysis. Restricted object is a side-effect of the technique accepted in the system, destructing the testers of tissue. Additionally, recurrent losses of temperature and necessity of greater power input are likely to put away the implementation of the systems, at a big scale. The growing demand for cryogenic structures for astronomy and aerospace are likely to offer openings, in the forthcoming period.

UAE Company, Purecog, Set to Disrupt Single-use Plastic Usage in Three Key Industries


DUBAI, UAE, April 10, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Purecog, a Dubai based company focussed on minimising waste and maximising resource efficiency, has launched an initiative to assess and reduce the harmful and costly plastic footprint of organisations within the Tourism, Hospitality and Healthcare sectors, in the Middle East.

Championing the transition to a Circular Economy, Purecog advocates a cost-effective and regenerative approach to resource management; in contrast to the traditional linear model, which has a 'take, make, dispose' attitude to production and use.

Since 1950's, around 8bn tons of plastic (that's 800,000 Eiffel Towers) has been produced, only 9% of which has been recycled. It's easy to see how this figure has accumulated, with 2m plastic bags and 1m plastic bottles bought and used around the world, every single minute! The majority of this plastic ends up in landfill sites or the ocean, killing 1.1m animals annually. It is statistics like these, which led to an overwhelming vote by members of the European Parliament, to ban all single-use plastics in Europe, by 2021.

By pioneering single-use, thin-film plastic replacement products such as water-soluble polymer shopping bags at the resource end, and upcycling technologies at the waste management end, Purecog is able to work closely with an organization, first auditing and reporting on the single-use plastic footprint in all areas, then offering practical solutions to improve not only a company's green credentials, but more significantly, its bottom line.

Speaking on the subject Paul Gandy, Operations Director at Purecog said: "Our team have a history of leading change, globally, in the field of sustainable business. That puts us in a uniquely advantageous position, ahead of the curve regionally, to assist a wide range of entities in the inevitable move towards a circular economic system, through knowledge sharing and problem solving."

It is for these reasons that Purecog has brought together a world-class of team of sustainable business experts, to deliver the triple bottom line: People, Planet, Profit.

CRU: China Stimulus 2018-19 - Less Positive for Commodities Demand than the Past


LONDON, April 10, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- The market had hoped that China would unveil a large stimulus package at the March NPC; but any expectation of a large boost to world growth and commodities demand has not come, yet. The current stimulus package is smaller; less potent and less positive for commodities demand than previous episodes of stimulus. This is because two-thirds of the stimulus comes via VAT cuts, and one-third from direct government spending. VAT cuts give companies money, which they may save, and will not translate into metals demand.

China stimulus 2018-19: Less positive for commodities demand than the past
CRU Logo

In March 2019, the National People's Congress (NPC) set out its annual plans for China's economic and fiscal policy. The meeting was closely watched, given growing concerns that the US-China trade war has sparked an economic slowdown in China.

Most of CRU's clients who responded to our annual economic survey, said that a large stimulus package from China would be the most likely source of upside to global growth. This strategy was highly successful in propping up growth in China and the world more broadly following the Global Financial Crisis (GFC).

This Spotlight Feature sets out our assessment of the latest stimulus package. Relative to past episodes, we judge it is:

  • smaller in size (as a share of GDP)
  • less potent for the macro economy in the short term (it has a larger share of tax cuts)
  • less positive for metals demand

This modest stimulus is warranted given that the recent growth slowdown has been small. It is consistent with the authorities' ambition for long-term growth that is sustainable from an environmental and financial stability perspective.

The current episode of stimulus is smaller than the past
As the US-China trade war unfolded in 2018, China announced a range of easing policies (for a comprehensive list see Annex II). Additional stimulus measures were announced at the NPC in March 2019 and are detailed in our recent Economic Insight. Two elements of the newly announced stimulus are worth noting:

  • A higher local government special bond quota â€�“ up by RMB800 billion. This will enable the funding of additional infrastructure projects.
  • Manufacturing sector VAT tax cuts of 3 percentage points, with a 1 percentage point cut in the construction and transport sectors. We estimate that this will lower corporate costs by RMB650 billion.

PRN: Factorin, a Blockchain-based Trade Finance Platform Processes 10,000th Transaction in Russia Wed, 10 Apr 2019 05:40:24 +0200 PR Newswire Turismo PR Newswire Turismo

Factorin, a Blockchain-based Trade Finance Platform Processes 10,000th Transaction in Russia


MOSCOW, April 10, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Factorin, a blockchain-based trade finance platform serving small and medium-sized businesses, has completed 10,000 transactions during its nine months of beta testing. Factorin is a fast growing and revenue generating business that seeks to partly address the estimated $45 billion gap of trade finance for small- and medium-sized businesses in Russia, according to company's estimations.

A large Russian retailer with revenue exceeding $5B and twelve financial institutions, including banks and factoring companies, signed on to the platform. All of the pilot corporate participants are embedding Factorin into their business processes after the company launches its platform for commercial use in the second quarter this year. As of now, Factorin has opened on-boarding for SMEs, thus making them fully ready for the new digitized process of legally-binding documents exchange.

The company uses blockchain technology to automate and improve trade finance transactions, making them faster, more transparent and more secure for all of the parties involved. Using their own node connected to the platform, large buyers interact with all of the factoring companies in one place. Banks also benefit as the possibility of fraud is greatly reduced. Suppliers enjoy faster transaction time, as they get access to financing within one day of applying via the Factorin platform.

Factorin instantly creates all of the necessary documents and encrypts transaction details for greater security. Buyers and financial companies, which have connected their nodes to Factorin, manage the process through a straightforward web interface. Suppliers can also use the web interface or a mobile application.

Andrei Maklin, Co-Founder and CEO of Factorin, commented:

Factorin allows businesses to interact in a unified digital space, enabling their systems to instantly and securely exchange data with one another. This helps all the parties involved to lower their costs and transaction time, cut out the risks related to human error. I strongly believe that technology is the future of trade finance, which should unlock financing for countless small and medium-sized businesses, that are currently underserved by the market. As a next step we're planning to expand geographically with our European partners as well as introduce additional financial instruments to the platform.
