From a waterfront location on the Charleston Peninsula, Mark Messersmith says he can see all the best the State Ports Authority has to offer.

There are the breakbulk ships loading cars at the Columbus Street Terminal, with cargo containers arriving at the Leatherman Terminal further north. Between them is the salt marsh of Drum Island, in the shadow of the Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge.

“You look and you can see the trade and you can see the conservation – it’s all there,” said Messersmith, the SPA’s permitting officer and head of the shipping agency’s environmental initiatives, such as restoration work on Drum. Island. “It’s always been great for me since I started working here to see that.”

The creation of 22 acres of salt marsh at the southern end of Drum Island was part of the authority’s commitment to offset the destruction of 11 acres of wetlands during the construction of the Leatherman Terminal, the port’s newest facility. of Charleston which opened in March 2021.

The SPA worked with Collins Engineers on the $4 million effort to restore what had been a dredge disposal site that had not been used in decades. The island was in poor condition – the tip had eroded and the tree fringe had fallen into the beach tide, according to a report by the Post and Courier.

“It was basically sitting there with a lot of invasive species,” Messersmith said, adding that unwanted plants like phragmites, Chinese tallow and chinaberry had taken over much of the property.

After clearing and grubbing up the land, the SPA planted over 100,000 native marsh plants, such as cordgrass, to return the island to its natural state.

“We really restored an old area that had dredged fill up to the elevations needed to support a viable marsh,” he said. “We believe this adds significant value to the harbor because, rather than a fringing salt marsh and a contaminated naval base, you now have an uncontaminated salt marsh in the middle of Charleston Harbor that is so visible.”

The works improved water quality and provided nursery habitat for juvenile fish and other marine species. Oyster reefs are created every year along the coastline of the island. And monitoring is underway to assess the impact of the restoration on air quality.

“Now we have an area open to the tidal flow from the harbor, so the tide goes up and down and certainly it provides habitat like any other tidal stream,” Messersmith said. “There are a lot of invertebrates and fish going in and out of this creek.”

Messersmith is quick to point out that the restoration project required many people willing to work together.


Tight economy, rising interest rates threaten to dampen speculative construction

“Many people have been involved — from our team, the contractors who did the work, and our amazing environmental partners — to making this project a success,” he said.

The restoration won a 2020 Engineering Excellence Award from the American Council of Engineering Companies of South Carolina, which cited its complexity and benefits to the public and the environment. It was one of the environmental projects that Barbara Melvin, president and CEO of the SPA, highlighted during her State of the Harbor Address on October 17.

“If you’re running or even walking across the bridge, when you’re on that slow, endless incline from Charleston to Mount Pleasant, just look to your right for inspiration,” Melvin said of Drum Island, adding the project has created a thriving ecosystem for birds and wildlife.

Melvin also touted other SPA initiatives, such as partnering with environmental groups to preserve 3,000 acres of land in the state as well as investing in hybrid cranes and electric trucks to reduce the port’s carbon footprint. . The new SPA yard being built in North Charleston, for example, will feature electric cranes and the agency has applied for federal grants that would pay for electric tugs and barges to move containers between the Wando Welch terminal in Mount Pleasant. and the Leatherman site. .

It’s all part of SPA’s “mission to become the greenest port in the Southeast,” Melvin said.

At COP27, the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) announced a series of programs to advance gender-responsive climate action. New announcements include:

Advancing gender-responsive climate action

  • USAID announced $21.8 million for gender-responsive climate action from the Gender Equity and Equality Action Fund (GEEA), surpassing its $14 million commitment at COP26 . This includes funding organizations working in more than 37 countries to address climate-related gender-based violence, supporting national governments to increase gender equality in their national climate commitments, and programs that advance green jobs for women and gender-responsive climate information services.
  • Through USAID’s Climate Finance Development Acceleration Facility (CFDA), USAID announced the launch of its new Climate Fund for Gender Equality, which will leverage sector funding to scale up climate finance that advances gender-equitable climate action. USAID and online retailer Amazon, Inc. announced a new five-year partnership, with initial funding of $6 million to establish the Climate Gender Equity Fund. This new initiative will increase access to climate finance for women-led climate organizations, as well as businesses that deliver gender-equitable climate solutions in the world’s least developed countries. As part of its commitment to gender equality and climate change, Amazon is also announcing a new commitment to allocate $50 million from its Climate Pledge Fund to invest in climate technology companies founded and led by people. women. Amazon will work with USAID and the Climate Gender Equity Fund to find new investment opportunities and expand its pool of female candidates.

Investing in climate leadership for Egyptian women

  • USAID has made an initial investment of $23 million in a new nine-year program, Egyptian Pioneers, which aims to build a more inclusive and skilled Egyptian workforce while contributing to climate goals. The investment will support leadership and professional training, undergraduate and postgraduate scholarships, and study abroad programs in the United States for more than 500 Egyptian women.

Together, these deliverables will accelerate climate action by developing gender-equitable approaches that leverage the unique knowledge, priorities and experiences of women and girls – all through impactful partnerships with the private sector, other US government agencies, bilateral and multilateral donors, and philanthropic organizations. Following last year’s announcement at COP26 and as outlined in USAID’s Climate Strategy, USAID is committed to increasing the participation and leadership of Indigenous Peoples, local communities, women and young people in all their diversity in climate action in at least 40 partner countries by 2030.

SHARM EL-SHEIKH, Egypt, November 10 (Reuters) – Recycling radioactive waste from nuclear power poses safety and cost concerns, but the United Nations’ International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) is reportedly in able to monitor the process if more countries go down this route, the IAEA lead said this week.

Increased efforts to combat climate change and soaring electricity costs in some parts of the world have rekindled interest in nuclear power, increasing the likelihood of the industry expanding after years of low investments due to security concerns.

US President Joe Biden’s administration, for example, sees nuclear power as a vital part of tackling emissions from the world’s second-largest producer of greenhouse gases and is exploring recycling as a way to increase domestic supply. in nuclear fuel and to reduce waste.

Asked about nuclear reprocessing, IAEA Director General Rafael Grossi played down the chances that it will soon become a reality in many new places.

“I don’t see many who are really seriously considering reprocessing,” Grossi told Reuters in an interview on Wednesday night at the COP27 climate summit in Egypt.

“Reprocessing is a very difficult technology that requires a lot of infrastructure.” Grossi added that “of course he has an overgrowth angle.”

But he said if new countries pursue reprocessing, the IAEA will ensure it is safe.

“No one will do reprocessing without the involvement of the IAEA,” he said, noting that any recycling of nuclear waste undertaken by North Korea is an exception.

Reprocessing is the conversion of plutonium and uranium from used nuclear fuel into new nuclear fuel. Proliferation experts say the practice could provide targets for militants seeking to build a crude nuclear weapon.

Former President Ronald Reagan lifted a moratorium on the reprocessing of US nuclear waste in 1981, but costs prevented the opening of factories.

Security is also a concern. While France, the UK and a handful of other countries already practice reprocessing, supply chains in the US could be longer and more vulnerable, proliferation experts say.

The U.S. Department of Energy’s Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy, or ARPA-E, aims to develop a dozen used nuclear fuel recycling projects in the U.S. as part of the broader U.S. stimulus policy Of the industry.

Last month, it awarded $38 million for reprocessing to companies including GE Research, the development arm of General Electric Company.

A U.S. Department of Energy spokesperson said the department “examines all aspects of the nuclear fuel cycle at the R&D stage to help improve fuel performance, reduce waste generation, and limit the risk of proliferation, and beyond research, he is still working with the IAEA to advance nuclear.”

The United States is storing nuclear waste in pools and in steel and concrete drums at reactor sites across the country, after a decades-long effort for a long-term waste dump failed in Nevada.

Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi Corp has ceased its financial services business in India, less than three years after its launch. The company recently removed the Mi Pay and Mi Credit apps from the local Play Store and its own app store in the country. Mi Pay, which allowed users to transact on the country’s UPI payment network, was also removed from the NPCI’s list of approved UPI apps.

Mi Pay, which allowed users to transact on the country’s UPI payment network, was also removed from the NPCI’s list of approved UPI apps.

The abrupt closure of the financial services division is a setback for Xiaomi India, which dominates the local smartphone market and has aggressively expanded its product line to boost profits, as the company’s hardware division has extremely steep profit margins. thin.

“As part of the annual strategic review activity and in response to an increased focus on our core business services, we closed Mi Financial Services in March 2022,” the company’s spokesperson told Reuters.

In March 2019, Xiaomi launched Mi Pay in India. According to company executives at the time, the app had over 20 million registered users in the country that year alone.

Xiaomi is facing investigations in India, its biggest market outside of China, for allegedly evading tax authorities.

Xiaomi’s assets worth $676 million were frozen in April by India’s federal financial crime agency, which claimed the company sent money illegally overseas while disguising the transfers as royalties.

The Chinese smartphone company, which denies accusations of wrongdoing, says the action has “effectively halted” operations in its crucial Indian market.

Due to political tensions following a border clash in 2020, many Chinese companies have found it difficult to do business in India.

India has since banned more than 300 Chinese apps, including popular apps like TikTok, citing security concerns, and has also tightened rules for Chinese companies investing in India.
