Spanning the millennium head on segment of attainment and engineering character IV-A Vol. XVI No. 2 February 2008 DOST-ITDI, ICETT carry out GFIS Joined hands with DOST CALABARZON in greening environments The Industrial Technology didactics Institute, a line agency of DOST, in cooperation with the International Center for environmental Technology Transfer (ICETT), based in Yokkaichi City, Prefecture of Mie, Japan, and select DOST Regional Offices atomic number 18 firing up local initiatives to boost productivity yet lowstood preserve local environment.ICETT, with the support and cooperation of its hold national and local brasss, industry, and academe, utilizes Japans store industrial technologies and administrative measures on environmental conservation. It applies these to implement syllabuss and projects on the a standardised together with participating countries. The aim is to enhance greening of regional environments and check their destruction overseas, thus achi eving conservation globally.Together with ICETT, the Filipinos as participating realm is thus implementing Green Frame tap of Innovative Strategy on sustainable Consumption and Productivity or GFIS, a five-year project of DOST-ITDI through its program on Cleaner drudgery. GFIS aims to 1. Establish model industrial-eco barangays, towns and communities 2. Improve environmental executing of both local industries and its community through environmental awareness, Cleaner Production (CP), Energy Efficiency (EE), and Environmental Management System (EMS) and 3.Recommend comestible for inclusion in policy recommendations to local government units and national government agencies. GREENHOUSE EFFECT GFIS aims to enhance greening of regional environments thus impart to global diminution of the Greenho purpose Effect. The greenhouse effect refers to the way in which gasolinees in the Earths atmosphere warm the Earth like the glass roof of a greenhouseby letting sunniness in but keeping the reflected heat energy trapped inside.These by nature cash in unrivaleds chipsring gases, notably carbon dioxide and water vapor, are called greenhouse gases. DOST CALABARZON bare February 2008 DOST-ITDI claims that one of the components of GFIS under the CP program is technological capacity building of staffs. It added CP is a forward-moving looking anticipate and prevent philosophy. Thus, firms prevent pollution before they occur resulting in sanguineuced wastes generated at source. This indirectly reduces operating costs and increases synthetic rubber of workers.The results are an improved corporate image as perceived by the public and global competitiveness. GFIS is being pilot tested at DOST NCR, DOST CALABARZON and DOST Region V. DOST CALABARZON through Guilberto A. Veluz, Center Manager for Technical Operations, recently initiated conduct of a three-day training and workshop for Cleaner Production Assessors of the region at genus Batis Aramin Resort and Hotel in Lu cban, Quezon. The Regional Office intended to build CP and EE technical capabilities of 18 CP assessors from five state universities in CALABARZON.These include provincial S Center of Quezon, Cavite state of matter University, Laguna State Polytechnic University, Batangas State University, University of Rizal System, and the Southern Luzon State University. During the training, the assessors evaluated production of Center Miki Factory and Valdes domestic fowl Farm in Lucban, and Capistrano Distillery and Kamayan sa Palaisdaan in Tayabas. The assessors completed drafting of the first Reports (Findings, Recommendations, Schedules and Tasks) and gave copies to management representatives of participating firms. They volition submit the complete CP report one month after the training.

They found out that young coconut husk extract imparts red to maroon likeness on silk, pina-seda and pina while it produces an old rose color on cotton. They also established colorfastness, clean and light ratings of the dyed materials and found these to be satisfactory for all these types. coco husks voltage to impart red color comes as a needed indulgence for textile manufacturers who use in great quan tities the non-colorfast red dye from sibukao (Caesalpinnia sappan).The textile institutes research study revealed that young coconut husks sourced from different locations produce varying shades of red. This required thus imbue and color tint matching capabilities and adjustments in the dyeing parameters. In addition, DOST-PTRI found that coconuts from high elevations yield almost no color compared with coconuts from coastals and low- lying areas. This unfermented use for young coconut husks holds promise for additional income for farmers. Likewise, the new techniques requirement for compulsory chopping of husks before extraction facilitates rapid decomposition.This reduces the lay on the line of clogging of waterways and drainage systems along coconut processing villages. Incidentally, this emerging subjective dye industry runs complimentary to the National Coconut Agenda as it does not compete with the food and health uses of coconut. DOST-PTRI pilot tested the young coconut husk extraction and textile application engineering victimization materials from the Bahaghari and kaLIKHAsan Collection of Kingsmen Corporation and Mariana Fashion Apparels, respectively. The technique forms part of the package of technologies adopt and commercialized by Soumak Collection to produce one of their original color options.Their dyed creations are sold in select shops in California, refreshing York City, parts of Asia, and soon in Europe. Soumak Collection also tried the new dyeing technology on cotton bed linens for their Bed and Beddings collection.

An earth observation system will be beneficial to the country, says Dr.Reynaldo Ebora, Executive Director of the Department of recognition and Technologys Philippine Council for Advanced Science and Technology Research and organic evolution (DOST-PCASTRD), convenor of the congress. The Philippines is perennially affected by natural disasters, making timely, synoptic quadriceps-based info a necessity. Participants to the Second National Congress gave solid support for a proposal to explore possibilities of acquiring the countrys own earth-observing satellite. at once acquired, the satellite will provide weather forecast months in advance. It tin predict where diseases like malaria and SARS are most likely to arise. While most may look at the acquisition as a way to avoid bother in their daily activities, regular incidence of typhoons and their resulting diseases show the importance of the satellite in saving lives and properties. According to DOSTs post technology expert Dr.Jose Edgardo Aban, having our own earth-observing satellite fire do the country in monitoring our land surface, biosphere, atmosphere, and surrounding oceans. The satellite can track environmental changes in areas it is assigned. Processes that the earth undergoes, be it biological, ecological, climatological, or geological, can be monitored and better understood. These will enable us, especially our leaders and experts, to puddle more informed decisions that may affect lives, the environment, and the economy.Aside from these, it can monitor forest fires, predict the effect of air quality on people, provide farmers with immediate forecast to help maximize agricultural yields, and calculate the ensample of typhoons and storms. Likewise, participants proposed the inclusion of satellite development and other related space technology applications in the school curriculum and strengthening the coordinative functions of the current Science and Technology Coordinating Council Committee on Space Technology Applications. DOST bookman grad finds 900 BLACK HOLES in the skyA Department of Science and Technology-Science Education Institute (DOST-SEI) scholar-graduate is now making waves in the international astronomical world after leading a team that discovered the largest play of super massive black holes in the centers of galaxies in the universe. Reinabelle Reyes, a PhD bookman at Princeton University and a BS Physics summa cum laude graduate at the Ateneo de Manila University in 2005, led a team of Sloan Digital pitch Survey (SDSS) scientists that discovered a large number of secluded quasars that are shrouded in light-absorbing dust and gas.According to Reyes, her team fo und around 900 concealed quasars, which is by far the largest sample ever found. We found that secret quasars get hold of up at least half of the quasars in the nearby universe, implying that most of the puissant black holes in our neighborhood had previously been unrecognized, she said. She added their discovery shows that powerful black holes are more common in the last octonary billion years of cosmic history than had previously been thought and that the recounting numbers of hidden compared to normal quasars show how the appearance of dust and gas determine the presence of a hidden quasar. The large number of hidden quasars we discovered implies that most of the light emitted by quasars is actually obscured. Moreover, because the light from these hidden quasars previously had been unaccounted for, black holes turn out to be more economic in converting the energy of in-falling matter into light than we had thought, she said. The research team presented its discovery last J anuary 9 at the annual meeting of the American astronomical Society in Austin, Texas, and has submitted a paper describing the research for publication in the Astronomical Journal.Reyes said their project is the culmination of the graduate thesis work of her co-author, Nadia Zakamska, a long-term postdoctoral fellow at the Institute of Advanced Study, under the supervision of Princeton professor Michael Strauss. Dr. Ester B. Ogena, Director of the DOST-SEI, said Reyes success in her life history is a glaring example of the quality of scholar-graduates the country produces and the vast potential the Philippines has in space science. We hope that our students would be able to get ardor from Reyes and pursue a career in the sciences that will 2 hopefully add to the roster of our great astronomers and space scientists, she said.

If only the outside part of the supergiant explodes (4), a nova forms.The DOST-SEI has laid the groundwork for a Philippine Space Education Program in the country follow ing a identification by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural OrganizationParis to act as focal point for its space-education program and related activities in the Philippines. It aims to promote science and technology, peculiarly space science, to Filipino students. The PSEP also seeks to engage the Filipinos in the exploration of space science and technology and the process of science in various disciplines in an effort to create an educated public and o generate afterlife space science explorers. Likewise, the PSEP aims to create awareness among the students in career opportunities in the various fields of science and engineering including space science that would erect standards and address skill shortages towards national development. It also aspires to establish linkages and partnership with space organizations and institutions for possible assistance and collaboration in space science education programs and projects.
