EV Dynamics Joins Forces with Quantron through a Share Swap to Form a New Electric Vehicle Powerhouse

HONG KONG, Jul 29, 2021 - (ACN Newswire) - Ev Dynamics (Holdings) Limited (the "Company", formerly known as China Dynamics (Holdings) Limited; Stock Code: 476, together with its subsidiaries, collectively "Ev Dynamics" or the "Group"), which provides new energy vehicles and technology integrated solutions, has signed a share swap agreement with Quantron AG ("Quantron"), a Germany-based company engaging in inner city e-mobility and regional passenger and freight transport, in a bid to expand its global new energy vehicle production, engineering, marketing and sales, and after-sale service setup.

Mr. Miguel Valldecabres Polop, CEO of Ev Dynamics (left) and Mr. Andreas Haller, member of the board and founder of Quantron (right) believe that the share swap is another milestone in the strategic growth of the two companies.

Pursuant to the agreement, Ev Dynamics has conditionally agreed to subscribe for 6,459 subscription shares of Quantron, representing approximately 10.18% of the enlarged share capital of the German company, at a consideration of EUR5,000,000 (equivalent to approximately HK$45,848,191). The consideration shall be satisfied by the Company via allotment and issuance of 254,712,175 consideration shares at HK$0.18 per share to Quantron.

The issue price of HK$0.18 represents a premium of approximately 44.00% to the closing price of HK$0.125 per share as quoted on The Stock Exchange of Hong Kong Limited on 28 July 2021, being the last trading day prior to the date of the agreement.

Upon completion of the deal, the Company will hold a total of 9,157 shares of Quantron, representing approximately 14.43% of the enlarged share capital of the German company.

Mr. Miguel Valldecabres Polop, CEO of Ev Dynamics, said: "The share swap will enable both companies to speed up profitable growth and reap synergies from sharing technical knowhow and respective market coverage. With the favourable policies and market trend of electrification of passenger and freight transports, Quantron has continued to receive substantial purchase orders and service quotations from customers and source e-platform and e-vehicle components from the Group to meet customer demand. The transaction will allow us to leverage the business network and experience of Quantron in Europe, giving us a good opportunity to expand into the light and medium e-delivery trucks market in Europe. Ev Dynamics will become one of the production plants for Quantron."

Mr. Andreas Haller, member of the board and founder of Quantron, said: "Quantron and Ev Dynamics will jointly develop zero-emission electric vehicles, hydrogen bus and logistic vehicles. The products and services will be designed and engineered by Quantron, which is well developed in Germany and Europe, where Ev Dynamics will manufacture the vehicles. The two companies will evaluate strategic partnerships with fuel cell technology companies. We believe the share swap is another milestone in the strategic growth of the two companies."

Mr. Michael Perschke, international advisor of EV Dynamics, added: "Quantron is a dominant player in the European electric vehicle market and Ev Dynamics is a prominent player in China's new energy commercial vehicle sector. By joining forces, both companies will gain access not only to new markets but also additional engineering capabilities."

昭和電工、電動車用アルミニウム製冷却器の生産ラインを増設

TOKYO, Jul 29, 2021 - (JCN Newswire) - 昭和電工株式会社(社長:森川 宏平)は、電気自動車、ハイブリッド車、プラグインハイブリッド車などの電動車に搭載されるパワーモジュール(Power Module、以下PM)(注1)向けアルミニウム製冷却器の需要増加に対応するため小山事業所の生産能力を倍増させることを決定し、2022年初頭の稼働開始に向けて生産ラインの増設に着手いたしました。

PM向けアルミニウム製冷却器

電動車用のPMは電動車の航続距離の延長や燃費の改善など、性能向上に寄与する重要部品です。PMは車内の限られたスペースに搭載しなければならないため、PM向け冷却器には、小型かつ搭載方法の自由度が高いことと同時に、高効率化・高放熱化が求められています。

当社が生産するPM向けアルミニウム製冷却器は、絶縁基板に放熱用の当社製アルミフィンを真空ロウ付け(注2)で直接接合することにより、小型で冷却水用の配管の位置を柔軟に設計できる高い汎用性と、高い放熱効果を実現しています。当製品は2019年から生産を開始しており、国内大手PMメーカーでモジュール化され、日本国内やアジア各地の自動車メーカーに採用されています。

今後カーボンニュートラル実現に向けたグローバル規模での取り組みの強化を背景に、自動車業界でも電動車へのシフトが加速し、一層の市場拡大が見込まれています。当社は長年培ってきたアルミニウム合金設計技術と加工技術、パワーモジュール評価技術をもとに、より小型で高性能のPM向け冷却器の開発・生産に取り組み、お客様の課題を解決するソリューションを提供して、アルミ機能部材事業の拡大を目指してまいります。

注1: パワーモジュール:複数のパワー半導体を組み合わせ、電源関係の回路を集積した部品。電動車の性能向上に寄与する重要部品。
注2: 真空ロウ付け:ロウ付けとは、母材をほとんど溶かさない接合法。炉の中が真空状態なため、炉内の温度を高精度に管理調整が可能で、寸法精度の厳しい当製品のような微細精密部品の接合に適している。

DigiMax Expands Global Marketing into Asia with Signing of Collaboration Deal in Hong Kong

TORONTO, ON, Jul 29, 2021 - (JCN Newswire) - DigiMax Global Inc. (the "Company" or "DigiMax") (CSE:DIGI)(OTC:DBKSF), a company that provides artificial intelligence ("AI") and cryptocurrency technology solutions, is pleased to announce that it has signed its first collaboration agreement to expand CryptoHawk services into Hong Kong and surrounding areas.

CryptoHawk is an Artificial Intelligence driven, price-trend prediction tool that can be profitably used by any investor interested in trading Bitcoin or Ethereum. The tool is different as it uses AI and machine learning to capture profit from the volatility of crypto currencies, rather than incur the risk of buy-and-hold investments. As previously announced by the Company, in its first full month of operation in June 2021, CryptoHawk signals achieved a 1-month, long-short return on BTC of more than 25% compared to a buy-and-hold return for the same period of a loss of 10%. In both up and down markets, CryptoHawk has the potential to deliver subscribers much higher returns when trading.

DigiMax is collaborating with Mr. Tony Tong in Hong Kong and other Asian regions where he has substantial influence. Mr. Tong is Co-Chairman & Co-Founder of Hong Kong Blockchain Association HKBA.hk.org, Council Member of International Digital Asset Exchange Association IDAXA.org , and President of GlobalSTOx.io & APX.HK. After graduating in engineering at the University of Minnesota and spending 15 years in the United States in several leading high-tech companies, Mr. Tong returned to Hong Kong where he has held many high-profile roles a few of which include:

- Co-Founder of Pacific Financial Services and Super Angels Ventures.
- Frequent speaker and bilingual moderator for leading fintech, blockchain, investment banking events, including Blockchain Economic Forum Singapore, Global Gaming Expo G2EAsia, Goldman Sachs, UBS, CLSA , Morgan Stanley Asia Investment Summit, Bank of America Merrill Lynch China Investment Summit.

The collaboration agreement between DigiMax and Mr. Tong will include the issuance of 200,000 common shares of DigiMax and an award of additional shares as he assists DigiMax in successfully completing partnering deals with exchanges or directly increasing the number of CryptoHawk subscribers in Asia.

"We have known DigiMax and its founders since 2017 and we are impressed that they have withstood the test of time in the cryptocurrency and blockchain world," said Tony Tong. "The CryptoHawk offering is already proving itself as an excellent tool for crypto traders to use to increase their returns and we look forward to working together to develop more markets in Asia with them."

"We are excited to be able to join forces with Tony Tong who we respect as a prominent leader in the crypto industry in Asia," said DigiMax CEO, Chris Carl. "Tony has been a leader and an innovator in every facet of the blockchain and crypto currency space and we are certain that CryptoHawk can deliver a whole new level of value and power to anyone interested in trading or owning crypto currencies in their portfolio."

KIROBO Update

Kirobo, a blockchain technology company into which DigiMax has made a strategic investment (see May 3, 2021 Press Release), yesterday announced it has launched its 'P2P Swap Button', a decentralized tool allowing cryptocurrency users to execute token swaps without having to use an exchange or custodial third party.

By taking the swap off-exchange, the tool allows users to decide their own prices for their tokens and transact directly with peers. As a result, slippage is avoided completely.

Asaf Naim, co-founder and CEO of Kirobo, said: "Until now, it wasn't possible to execute a swap without losing money, because exchange algorithms adjust token prices according to the amounts put up for sale. We're allowing people to trade without an exchange and to set their own prices, with complete security, for the first time ever."

Kirobo's safe transfer platform secures transactions with an authentication key, the component parts of which are divided between the first party, the smart contract, and the Kirobo server. There's no single point of failure, and Kirobo does not hold users' funds at any point.

Alphaus enters Singapore Cloud Financial Management market with Cloud Comrade win

KUALA LUMPUR, Jul 29, 2021 - (ACN Newswire) - Alphaus Inc. (https://alphaus.cloud/jp/), a prominent start up in the Cloud Financial Management space in Japan, has made a successful foray into the Singapore market in line with its strategic growth plans. The company will provide its suite of cloud financial management (CFM) solutions to the fast-growing Managed Services Provider (MSP) Cloud Comrade (https://cloudcomrade.com/). The overall value of Alphaus' solutions and support, with the ability for bespoke integrations to the financial services system, were key considerations for Cloud Comrade to switch to Alphaus' products as critical components for its business operations.

Andy Waroma and Hajime Hirose

Signing Cloud Comrade- the first Singapore-headquartered AWS Premier Consulting Partner that is also a Google Premier Partner and Microsoft Gold Cloud Platform partner- as a client gives Alphaus great impetus in achieving its strategic goals for the Southeast region. Its growing Global Delivery Centre in Kuala Lumpur, established last year, is a testament to the company's commitment to provide dedicated support for the unique needs of a diverse clientele across various countries and industries in this high-potential region.

Solving cloud financial management challenges

Cliched as it sounds, the 'New Normal' is upon us with increasing clarity that it is in the cloud. According to a study by Boston Consulting Group (BCG) in 2020, the Asia Pacific- including India and Australia- is leading this charge as the adoption of the public cloud in the region outpaces that in the US and Western Europe. From a modest 3 percent of their IT spend on the public cloud in 2016, businesses in APAC are projected to spend over 10% of the IT budget on the public cloud by 2023.

Despite the promising growth and outlook for migration to the cloud, the complexity and lack of adequate clarity into the costs of cloud infrastructure deployment present a serious challenge for businesses making or facilitating such a transition. This was highlighted in a survey of over 100 companies in Malaysia carried out last year. In the recent past, Amazon Web Services (AWS) has also highlighted this problem while recommending that companies take appropriate steps for CFM. 'Cloud waste' or sub-optimal utilization of cloud resources is another major pain point, preventing businesses from deriving maximum ROI on their cloud spend.

Alphaus precisely addresses these challenges, expanding its footprint in APAC as a pioneer in simplifying billing/spend management and tackling cloud waste for companies. Its suite of user-friendly and feature-rich Software-as-a-Service products - Wave* and Ripple** -- is serving as a catalyst to faster, greater, and better adoption and use of the cloud.

Helping Cloud Comrade in its growth journey

Cloud Comrade is one of the many companies experiencing the value of Aphaus' solutions. The company had been on the lookout for a more effective solution and a reliable partner who could help navigate the dynamic future of cloud management to jointly deliver even greater value and a better cloud experience for their customers.

"As a cloud Managed Services Provider, we enable several large organizations in the region with their digital transformation and migration to the cloud. It is a critical success factor for both our clients and us that we not only have complete clarity on all the costs associated with the cloud infrastructure but are also making optimum utilization of any cloud resources deployed. The SaaS solutions from Alphaus for billing management and cloud cost optimization provide us with the requisite tools, information, and intelligence to achieve these seamlessly. These tools are integral to our operations and in use 24/7. Alphaus' Wave and Ripple go a long way in helping maximize ROI, one of the key value propositions for moving to the cloud," said Andy Waroma, Co-Founder & Co-Managing Director of Cloud Comrade.

"We are thrilled to have a leader like Cloud Comrade as a client and help it deliver better customer service with bespoke integrations to its financial services system," said Hajime Hirose, CEO of Alphaus Inc. "The APAC is a digital hub that is at the cusp of unprecedented use of cloud services. Our goal is to enable every business to fully realize the value of migrating their IT infrastructure to the cloud. All change does not have to be painful. This belief explains our relentless focus on simplifying billing/spend management, helping companies realize cost and time savings, optimizing resources and consequently, directly impacting their bottom line. We are committed to continually introduce features that fulfill these objectives for our partners and clients; our strong presence and expansion in the APAC market manifests this commitment."

*Wave- Cloud Cost Optimization and Management
Manages multiple AWS cloud accounts in one place, analyzes organizations' cost and optimizes budget easily. Wave helps organizations get a clear picture of the cost of cloud infrastructure, discover wasted resources and excessive costs.

**Ripple- Billing Management Solution for MSPs and resellers
Recalculates AWS invoices and reallocates Reserved Instances (RIs) only to linked accounts they belong to, helping the former to accurately charge their customers. Ripple helps service providers save significant time and hassle in complex accounting and billing. Service providers can also use Ripple to plan their RI procurement strategy for maximum ROI.

About Alphaus Inc.

Alphaus, a VC-backed tech start-up on a mission to simplify cloud computing for everyone specializes in Cloud Financial Management (CFM) solutions. The company is focused on enabling its cloud services partners and clients to understand, manage and optimize complicated cloud spend, billings and resource allocation for maximizing ROI on their investments in the cloud. An AWS Advanced Technology Partner, Alphaus provides a suite of Software-as-a-Service solutions for multi-cloud management supporting AWS, Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud.

Founded in 2015, Alphaus Inc. is backed by reputed investors like DNX Ventures, NTT DoCoMo Ventures, Mitsubishi UFJ Capital, Archetype Ventures, Accord Ventures and 500 Startups. The company's roster of clients includes NTT Data, Nomura Research Institute (NRI), and ISI-Dentsu. Headquartered in Japan, Alphaus has a rapidly growing Global Delivery Centre in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia comprising 10 team members to support its rapid expansion in the Asia Pacific and Oceania regions.

MoonstakeウォレットがMuse Financeのアプリケーションを実装 高度なDeFiサービスへの接続を開始

SINGAPORE, Jul 28, 2021 - (JCN Newswire) - Moonstake(ムーンステーク)は、DeFiパートナーのMuse Finance(ミューズ・ファイナンス、以下Muse)の機能を実装し、ウェブ版ウォレットを通じた、MuseのDeFiアプリケーションへのアクセスを開始しました。これにより、現在Museが実施中のロックドロップへの参加が、Moonstakeウォレットから直接可能になるとともに、今後、Museが実装を予定するDeFiアプリケーションも、随時、Moonstakeウォレット内で直接使うことができるようになります。なお、Museの機能統合は世界で初めてのことになります。


MoonstakeとMuseは、2021年3月にDeFiへの共同参入を発表しました。以来、両者はステーキングの非流動性を解決することを目的とした高度なDeFiプロダクトを開発・普及させるため、緊密に連携してきました。

Moonstakeは、アジア最大のステーキングネットワークの構築を目指して、2020年にステーキング事業を開始し、2000以上の暗号通貨に対応した、最もユーザーフレンドリーなウェブウォレットとモバイルウォレット(iOS / Android)を開発しました。昨年8月に本格的な運用を開始すると、Moonstakeのステーキング資産総額は10億ドルに達するまで成長し、世界トップ5のステーキングプロバイダーの一つになりました。現在、Moonstakeは、Cosmos、IRIS、Ontology、Harmony、Tezos、Cardano、Qtum、Polkadot、Quras、Centrality、Orbs、IOSTのステーキングに対応しています。

一方、Museは、包括的なDeFiプラットフォームで、2021年3月にプロジェクトを始動しました。ステーキング資産に流動性を与えるため、DeFiに活用できるステーキング資産のラップトークンを発行するためのWrapper(ラッパー)や、そうした資産の流通を促進させるDEX(分散型取引所)やLending(貸出)プラットフォームなど、さまざまなDeFiプロダクトがローンチ予定です。

Moonstakeウォレットにすでに実装済みのMuseの機能としては、ロックドロップがあります。ロックドロップは、トークンの販売と資産を組み合わせるのではなく、「機会損失」を担保として捉え、価値ある損失の対価としてトークンを配布する、DeFiで頻繁に用いられるトークン配布メカニズムです。ロックドロップの詳細はこちら(https://tinyurl.com/39rd9hve)をご覧ください。

また、ユーザーはアフィリエイトプログラムを利用して、他のユーザーをロックドロップの参加者として招待することで、追加のリファーラル報酬を得ることもできます。

Moonstake Integrates Muse Finance for MUSE Lockdrop and Advanced DeFi Connectivity

SINGAPORE, Jul 28, 2021 - (ACN Newswire) - Moonstake is pleased to announce that we've integrated our DeFi application partner, Muse Finance (shortened as Muse), into the Web Wallet to bring advanced DeFi connectivity to our platform. This means that directly through the Moonstake wallet interface, you can now participate in Muse's current lockdrops and use the DeFi applications that Muse plans to implement in the future. This will be the first time in the world that Muse will be integrated. Since the announcement of our joint entrance to DeFi in March 2021, we have been working together closely to develop and promote high-quality DeFi products that aim to resolve staking illiquidity.


Moonstake launched its staking business in 2020 with the aim to create the largest staking network in Asia. Since then, it has developed the most user-friendly Web Wallet and Mobile Wallet (iOS/Android) with support for over 2000 cryptocurrencies. After a full-scale operation launched in August 2020, Moonstake's total staking assets have grown rapidly to reach $1 Billion, allowing Moonstake to become one of the top 5 staking providers globally. Currently, Moonstake supports 12 high-demand staking coins: Cosmos, IRIS, Ontology, Harmony, Tezos, Cardano, Qtum, Polkadot, Quras, Centrality, Orbs, and IOST.

Muse is a comprehensive DeFi platform launched in March 2021. It is working to launch various DeFi products, including a Wrapper to issue wrapped tokens for staking assets that can be used to provide liquidity to staked assets, as well as DEX (decentralized exchange) and Lending platforms to facilitate the distribution of such assets.

A feature of Muse already implemented in the Moonstake wallet is lockdrop. Lockdrop is a common, low-risk method of token distribution mechanism in the DeFi industry without raising money while incentivizing user participation. Instead of combining the sale of tokens with assets, lockdrop sees "loss of opportunity" as collateral and distributes tokens in return for valuable losses. For more information about lockdrop, please click here (https://tinyurl.com/39rd9hve)

Furthermore, users can also utilize the affiliate program to earn extra referral rewards by inviting others to participate in the lockdrop.

The connection with DeFi products, which has been growing strong since last year, will further enhance the user experience of Moonstake platform. Future product launches of Muse will add liquidity to the staking assets and open the door to innovative DeFi products, all of which will be supported by Moonstake as usual.

About Moonstake

Moonstake was recently established to develop a staking pool protocol to satisfy increasing demands in regional and global blockchain markets. Moonstake develops a staking pool protocol and provides business services through partners and companies.

Moonstake aims to be the largest staking pool network in Asia by providing an active environment for crypto asset holders. Establishing a clear partnership roadmap with Moonstake represents another significant milestone for continuing to strengthen ties with leading platforms across Asia's burgeoning Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) ecosystem. Partnerships have been announced with Emurgo, Ontology and NEO to boost staking adoption, Binarystar, Japan's biggest blockchain hub, OIO Holdings Limited (SGX: OIO), a Singapore-listed company. Industry's reputed advisors, such as Lisk and Lawrence Lim of RAMP DEFI support Moonstake's innovative journey.

With a full-scale operation launched in August 2020, we expanded our business and as of now, our total staking assets exceeded over USD 1 billion. https://www.moonstake.io/

Muse.Finance also links non ERC-20 assets with the ERC-20 ecosystem, allowing owners of staked assets on platforms such as Cosmos, IRISnet, Cardano, etc. to participate in lending, liquidity mining, and yield farming. https://musefinance.io/

Leo Secures a Total of HKD1.15 Billion Green Loan after Successful Completion of Third Round of Green Financing

HONG KONG, Jul 28, 2021 - (ACN Newswire) - Leo Paper Group (Hong Kong) Limited (the "Group"), a global printing communications company based in Hong Kong, announced that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Leo Paper Group Finance Limited ("Leo"), has signed a HKD400 million four-year green term loan and revolving credit facility ("Green Loan") with a group of eight major banks today. Together with the green loans totalling HKD750 million obtained in 2018 and 2019, the Group has secured a total of HKD1.15 billion in Green Financing. Also, the Group has been recognised as the first batch of local companies eligible for the Green and Sustainable Finance Grant Scheme of the Hong Kong Monetary Authority ("HKMA"), entitling it to full subsidy for all external review service expenses.

The advent of the COVID-19 pandemic has raised notably worldwide attention on the environmental, social and governance (ESG) endeavours of business corporations. In the "14th Five-Year Plan for the Development of Circular Economy" recently released by the National Development and Reform Commission, there is a clear direction of achieving full implementation of "circular production" by 2025, encouraging industries to promote green designs and clean production, and to more efficiently integrate and apply resources. It also urges financial institutions to increase green economy-related investment and financing so as to support companies and projects related to the circular economy. As a leader in the printing industry and a first mover in ESG, Leo continued to enjoy strong support from local and international banks for this third round of Green Financing amid the pandemic. Part of the HKD400 million green loan will be used on the green construction projects in its existing plants in Mainland China and Vietnam, to strengthen energy saving and reduction of carbon emissions, waste gas, solid waste, waste water and other environmental protection facilities. Another part of the loan will be used to build a new green plant in Hunan, China that complies with the certification standards, and more stringent standards will be adopted at the plant for energy consumption, waste water and waste discharges. The aim of such efforts is to help the country promote "carbon peaking" and "carbon neutrality", while also driving the Group's business development in Mainland China.

In fact, Leo has been boosting its efforts on energy and emission reduction at its production plants in Mainland China and Vietnam over the years to help foster sustainable development of the paper products and printing industry. Since securing green loans totalling HKD750 million in 2018 and 2019, the Group has invested a few hundred million Hong Kong dollars so far in various energy saving and technological improvement projects in relation to energy efficiency management, carbon emissions reduction, waste water, waste gas control, green buildings, resource utilization and recycling of natural resources, etc. The significant results achieved have helped the Group's production bases save cumulatively close to 18 million kwh of electricity and reduce over 9,200 tonnes of carbon emissions (data as of July 31, 2020), making environmental protection and energy saving much more effective.

In addition, having been recognised as the first batch of companies eligible for Hong Kong Monetary Authority's (HKMA) Green and Sustainable Finance Grant Scheme, Leo has received subsidy that covered all its external review service expenses. Also, with the effort to promote development of green financing in Hong Kong, Leo became the first private company to obtain the Hong Kong Quality Assurance Agency ("HKQAA") Green Finance Certification in 2018. Later in 2020, the Group also won the "Outstanding Award for Green Loan Issuer - Comprehensive Green Framework - Single Green Loan (Printing & Communication Industry)" from the Hong Kong Sustainable Finance Awards 2020 organised by HKQAA. In addition to the successful approval of the HKMA's Green and Sustainable Finance Grant Scheme, it is undoubtedly a great affirmation and encouragement to Leo's promotion of green development over the years.

Mr Samuel Leung, Group Chairman, said, "2020 was a year of changes and challenges. COVID-19 pandemic which has lasted for more than a year has profound impacts on the entire society, economy, market demand and business operations. Some of the Group's businesses such as paper packaging, greeting cards and gifts, were also slightly affected last year. However, benefiting from people staying home longer particularly in Europe and the US, the Group's home entertainment products including books, card games and jigsaw puzzles had impressive growth in the slack market. With the pandemic gradually coming under control, the Group will expand the production capacity of its plants in Mainland China and Vietnam to prepare for the economic recovery."

"The pandemic has helped us realise the importance of sustainable development to a company. Thus, we have implemented timely a full spectrum of sustainable development strategies for environmental protection, social responsibility, employee protection and business excellence. Looking ahead, the Group will continue to promote environmental protection and strive to achieve the 'zero-waste factory' goal, in the hope of setting new industry standards."

Mr King Lai, CFO of the Group, said, "In spite of the uncertainties in the global and local markets in recent years, our latest Green Financing still received strong support from eight major banks. The fact that the HKD400 million four-year green term loan and revolving credit facility only took 36 days to organize - a new industry record - is a clear testament to the strong confidence the capital market has in the Group's financial strength and prospects. We are proud to have secured the funds and are grateful for the trust and recognition from the banks. Going forward, we will continue to deliver on our promise of leading the industry towards a greener future."

Mr Frank Fang, Head of Commercial Banking, Hong Kong, HSBC, said: "Building on our support for Leo Paper's Green Loan Framework established in 2018, we are pleased to participate in the Group's Green Financing projects for the third time, as it continues to embed sustainability into its operations. The banking sector plays an important role in corporates' net-zero mission. As the leading bank in the sustainable finance market, HSBC is dedicated to supporting our customers' ESG agenda and driving the transition to a low-carbon economy."

The eight banking institutions participating in the Green Financing exercise included (in alphabetical order):

Bank of China (Hong Kong) Ltd.
Citibank, N.A.
CTBC Bank Co., Ltd.
Hang Seng Bank Ltd.
The Hongkong and Shanghai Banking Corporation Ltd.
Mizuho Bank, Ltd.
The Bank of East Asia, Ltd.
United Overseas Bank Ltd.

To demonstrate its determination to realising long-term sustainable development, Leo has formulated the "Green Harmony" framework as the core policy aiming to build a green business chain from raw materials to consumers and from design to disposal. The Group also raised the barriers of the framework this year, hoping to give new impetus to its green development.

三菱重工業、関西電力美浜発電所3号機における新規制基準適合の安全性向上対策を実施

TOKYO, Jul 28, 2021 - (JCN Newswire) - 三菱重工業はこのほど、関西電力株式会社が保有する美浜発電所3号機(福井県美浜町)において、新規制基準(注)の施行後では初となる炉内構造物の一体取替工事ならびに国内初となるフリースタンディング方式による使用済燃料ピットラックへの取替工事を、関係企業と連携のもと完工しました。

炉内構造物は、原子炉容器の中で燃料集合体を保持するための設備です。新規制基準により設備に求められる耐震性が増大したことを受け、今回の工事では部材の強度を全体的に向上しつつ、海外において発生事例があるボルト損傷への対策も施した炉内構造物の一体取り替えを実施しました。炉内構造物の一体取替工事としては世界5例目で、その全てを当社が施工しています。

一方、使用済燃料ピットラックは、使用した核燃料をプール内へ収納する際に用いられる構造物です。耐震性向上のため、床への固定により地震荷重に耐える従来方式のラックを、床に固定しない自立式を採用したフリースタンディングラックへ取り替える作業を実施。本方式では、ラックを囲む外周板が受ける水の抵抗およびラックと床との摩擦抵抗により、ラックに作用する地震荷重を軽減することが可能です。

これらの安全性向上対策を実施した美浜発電所3号機は、原子力発電プラントの運転期間を原則40年とし、特別な審査に合格すれば20年を上限に1回限り延長できると定めた新規制基準の施行後、40年を超えて運転する国内初のプラントとしてこのほど営業運転を再開しています。

三菱重工は引き続き、原子力発電プラントメーカーとして培ってきた高度な技術を通じて、プラントの安全性向上ならびに安全かつ安定した営業運転実施に貢献していきます。

昭和電工、合成樹脂エマルジョン・溶液系樹脂の価格改定を発表

TOKYO, Jul 28, 2021 - (JCN Newswire) - 昭和電工株式会社(社長:森川 宏平)は、合成樹脂エマルジョン「ポリゾール(R)」、溶液系樹脂「コーガム(R)」「ビニロール(R)」「ポリフィックス(R)」等の販売価格を以下のとおり引き上げることを決定しました。

1.価格改定の内容

(1)値上げ幅

合成樹脂エマルジョン「ポリゾール(R)」
- エチレン-酢酸ビニル系エマルジョン: 25円/kg
- 酢酸ビニル系エマルジョン: 20円/kg
- アクリル系エマルジョン: 30円/kg

溶液系樹脂「コーガム(R)」「ビニロール(R)」「ポリフィックス(R)」: 47円/kg

(2)実施時期

2021年8月16日出荷分より

2.価格改定の背景

合成樹脂エマルジョンや溶液系樹脂は、接着剤や塗料用など用途が多岐にわたり、日常生活に密接な関係を持った合成樹脂です。住宅建材・建築・繊維・紙加工など様々な産業で利用されています。

合成樹脂エマルジョンのうち、エチレン-酢酸ビニル系と酢酸ビニル系は主にエチレンや酢酸ビニルから、アクリル系とスチレン-アクリル系、溶液系樹脂は主にアクリル酸エステルやスチレンから製造されます。昨今、原油市況や原料需給のタイト化により、エチレンや酢酸ビニル、アクリル酸エステルやスチレンの価格が上昇しており、また包材、副資材、物流費等も値上がりしています。

当社はこれまでも製造や物流の工程の合理化を進めてコストダウンに努めてまいりましたが、原燃料コストの上昇が続き、非常に厳しい状況となっております。このため、製品の安定供給体制を維持するためには、お客様に価格改定をお願いせざるを得ないという結論に達しました。

Mandalika Circuit could emerge as favorite in racing world: Expert

Lombok Island, Indonesia, Jul 28, 2021 - (JCN Newswire) - The Mandalika Circuit in Lombok, West Nusa Tenggara, which is expected to be completed by 2022, has the potential to become a new favorite in the international racing world, an expert has said. "Once it is finished, this circuit will be gorgeous, and the track is flowing. This fast circuit will be the new favorite in the international racing world," motorsport aficionado Arief Kurniawan told ANTARA last Thursday (July 22, 2021).

Mandalika's developer, the Indonesian Tourism Development Corporation (ITDC), is targeting completion of the 4.3-km circuit with 17 corners to meet the specifications and pass the homologation test of the International Motorcycling Federation (FIM).

The Mandalika Grand Prix Association, the circuit's promoter and operator, noted that as of mid-July this year, construction work on the circuit was 81.42 percent complete. Meanwhile, work on the run-off gravel, run-off grass, north tunnel and retaining wall, outer and inner service road, and concrete barrier installation was more than 95 percent complete.

Speaking on the construction progress, Kurniawan observed the circuit has not been able to meet FIM's requirements since the paddock has not been built. "But even without the homologation qualification, Mandalika Circuit has been chosen by World Superbike (WSBK) to host the championship on November 14 this year, while the plan to host MotoGP had to be postponed until March next year."

Work on the circuit's asphalt and track lane is expected to be finished by the end of July 2021, before FIM's representatives inspect it for homologation, at least three months before the event, to determine the circuit's eligibility as a venue for the world racing championship, he said.

To meet FIM's requirements, the asphalt, run-off, pitstop, paddock building, health facility and helipad need to be completed and a hospital provided in the surrounding area. Once completed, Mandalika Circuit will be comparable to circuits such as Sepang, Malaysia and Chang, Thailand, already well-known as MotoGP venues, Kurniawan said.

"Because Mandalika Circuit has a unique selling point: It is in the Special Economic Zone (KEK Mandalika), surrounded by beautiful beaches and the Indian Ocean. We will also add polish to make the circuit more accessible in the next four years," he remarked.

Forty garages have been made available within the circuit's paddock area and the main tribune has been prepared to accommodate 50 thousand seats, while the standing tribune will hold 138 thousand people, Kurniawan informed. The circuit will also house hospitality suites for 7,700 people.

The paddock, main tribune, standing tribune and hospitality suites can be dismantled, and the circuit track can function as a normal roadway when there is no racing schedule, explained Kurniawan. Surrounded by panoramic hills and the beaches of South Lombok Island, the Mandalika Circuit would be the only street circuit made part of the MotoGP agenda.

Mandalika Circuit could emerge as favorite in racing world: Expert

Lombok Island, Indonesia, Jul 28, 2021 - (ACN Newswire) - The Mandalika Circuit in Lombok, West Nusa Tenggara, which is expected to be completed by 2022, has the potential to become a new favorite in the international racing world, an expert has said. "Once it is finished, this circuit will be gorgeous, and the track is flowing. This fast circuit will be the new favorite in the international racing world," motorsport aficionado Arief Kurniawan told ANTARA last Thursday (July 22, 2021).

Mandalika Circuit has a unique selling point: It is in the Special Economic Zone (KEK Mandalika), surrounded by beautiful beaches and the Indian Ocean.

Dorna Sports S.L. has designated Mandalika Circuit as one of the venues for MotoGP.

Mandalika's developer, the Indonesian Tourism Development Corporation (ITDC), is targeting completion of the 4.3-km circuit with 17 corners to meet the specifications and pass the homologation test of the International Motorcycling Federation (FIM).

The Mandalika Grand Prix Association, the circuit's promoter and operator, noted that as of mid-July this year, construction work on the circuit was 81.42 percent complete. Meanwhile, work on the run-off gravel, run-off grass, north tunnel and retaining wall, outer and inner service road, and concrete barrier installation was more than 95 percent complete.

Speaking on the construction progress, Kurniawan observed the circuit has not been able to meet FIM's requirements since the paddock has not been built. "But even without the homologation qualification, Mandalika Circuit has been chosen by World Superbike (WSBK) to host the championship on November 14 this year, while the plan to host MotoGP had to be postponed until March next year."

Work on the circuit's asphalt and track lane is expected to be finished by the end of July 2021, before FIM's representatives inspect it for homologation, at least three months before the event, to determine the circuit's eligibility as a venue for the world racing championship, he said.

To meet FIM's requirements, the asphalt, run-off, pitstop, paddock building, health facility and helipad need to be completed and a hospital provided in the surrounding area. Once completed, Mandalika Circuit will be comparable to circuits such as Sepang, Malaysia and Chang, Thailand, already well-known as MotoGP venues, Kurniawan said.

"Because Mandalika Circuit has a unique selling point: It is in the Special Economic Zone (KEK Mandalika), surrounded by beautiful beaches and the Indian Ocean. We will also add polish to make the circuit more accessible in the next four years," he remarked.

Launchable、ソフトウェア・リリースを加速する継続的クオリティのビジョンの実現に向けて10億円のシリーズA資金調達

SAN JOSE, CA, Jul 27, 2021 - (JCN Newswire) - あらゆるソフトウェア・テストにインテリジェンス・プラットフォームを提供するLaunchableは、本日、10億円のシリーズA資金調達を完了しました。このラウンドは、645 Ventures, Battery Ventures, Unusual Ventures, GoingVC, IT-Farm及びエンジェル投資家によるものです。調達された資金は、開発者がソフトウェア・リリースを加速する事を可能にする継続的クオリティのビジョンの実現に使われます。

ソフトウェア開発チームの多くは、ソフトウェアのデリバリに苦しんでいます。開発者は増え続けるテストや対応プラットフォームと格闘しながらソフトウェアを本番環境にデプロイしています。テストの自動化はテストを増やす一方です。これによって、テスト結果待ち時間が増えて生産性が損なわれ、テスト実行環境に掛かる費用が膨らみます。大して意味のないテストを延々と実行して遅れに遅れたフィードバックを届けるのに、億単位の費用が使われることもしばしばです。

Launchableの共同創業者、共同社長、またJenkinsの創始者の川口耕介は、次のように述べています。「データのもたらす知見を活用してチームと開発者がソフトウェアを自信を持って素早くデリバー出来るようにする、それが我々のビジョンです。伝統的に、ソフトウェアのビルドとテスト時間の問題は腕づくで、つまりより多くの計算機と人間を投入することで、解決されてきました。しかし、多くのチームはこの方法の限界に直面しています。Launchableは、開発者がこの問題をスマートに解決することを可能にします。意味のあるテストを走らせ、問題を早く発見し、リスクを減らし、コミット頻度を上げて、本番環境までに掛かる時間を短縮します」

典型的なソフトウェア開発プロジェクトでは、時間の掛かるテスト群が毎回全て実行され、変更が小さい場合には大きな無駄になります。しかし、少数の意味のあるテストをふるい分けることは簡単には出来ません。

Launchableのプラットフォームの中核をなすのは、ソースコードの変更や過去のテストの挙動から、テストの成功失敗を予測する機械学習の力です。テストが走るたびに、結果はLaunchableに蓄積されてモデルの改良に使われます。最適なテストを判別して実行することにより、Launchableは、インフラ費用と開発者生産性の問題を異解決します。同プラットフォームでは、同じデータを用いてフレイキーなテストをスコア付する事も出来ます。

645 VenturesのAlessio Fanelliは次のように述べています。「私が主任技術者として働いていた頃、テストを書くという行為には、網羅率を上げるのと実行時間を短く保つのと、二つの相反する目標をバランスさせる必要がありました。Launchableのテスト・インテリジェンス製品は、開発チームがこの両方の目標を達成する事を可能にします。企業はこれによってエンジニアから何千時間もの生産性を引き出す事が出来ます。我々は、Harpreet、耕介、そしてLaunchableチーム一同とこの新しいカテゴリを提唱する事を楽しみにしています」

Launchableは、CloudBees社の元CTOでありJenkinsの創始者である川口耕介と、CloudBeesのプロダクト担当副社長であり、Atlassian BitbucketのHead of Productであるハープリート・シン(Harpreet Singh)によって創業されました。Jenkinsを作った事で知られる川口は、ソフトウェア開発者の直面する問題を解決する事に日々情熱を傾けています。CloudBeesのCTOとして、川口とシンはJenkinsを事業化し、チームを400人以上の規模に成長させました。シンはこの事業を年商数十億円規模の事業に拡大しました。Launchableは2019年9月に創業しました。

Battery Venturesのジェネラル・パートナーのDharmesh Thakkerは次のように述べています。「Launchableの最初期からのシード投資家として、この会社が今まで為した成長に心温まる思いです。この疫病下、多くの組織がデジタル改革を推進し、開発プロセスの改善の重要さを痛感しています」同じくBatteryの副社長であるChiraag Deoraはこう付け加えました。「多くの企業が依然として高品質のソフトウェアを素早くリリースするのに苦労しています。開発チームからテストというボトルネックを解消するというLaunchableの取り組みを、我々は今後も支援していきます」

この他に、IT-Farm、GoingVC、Siris Capital Groupのエグゼクティブ・アドバイザーのAl Zollarなどがこのラウンドに参加しています。

Mute Offers Preview of Long-Awaited Layer 2 DEX Set to Launch

San Francisco, CA, July 27, 2021 - (ACN Newswire) - Recently, Mute, a project building solution that make the defi space more accessible and useful to all, has launched a beta version of Mute Switch, their forthcoming DEX platform.

While 2021 has thus far been a banner year for digital finance—and defi in particular—the ascension of this still-nascent sector and the enthusiasm engendered by the significant potential it possesses have not eliminated its flaws. For as long as crypto has been around, pricing and scalability issues, like the two ends of a single pincer, have kept it from realizing more fully the potential it has as a transformative financial instrument.

A mere surface analysis of Ethereum's recent performance does much to demonstrate how problematic these issues are. While ETH experienced unprecedented growth as the underlying vehicle powering much of defi, the growth was not sustainable primarily due to scalability limits and correlated high gas fees—at times ranging into hundreds of dollars—hamstringing users and pricing others out of the market.

The remedy to this has been sought by building a successive layer on top of the primary blockchain, or what is now considered layer 1. Mute, a project that has set out to make good on the promise of defi for the masses, has just offered a taste of what a comprehensive layer 2 solution to pricing and scaling looks like.

Mute Switch is a DEX exchange platform that is powered by ZK Rollup technology, which has been singled out by Vitalik Buterin as his favorite layer 2 scaling solution. Although the terms can be confusing to the unfamiliar ear, what ZK Rollup tech essentially offers is a secondary, parallel branch to the main blockchain. On this secondary branch there are huge pockets that can fit exponentially more transactions than the original chain can in a given time frame. However, ZK Rollup is intrinsically linked to the original chain, and each pocket of numerous transactions is transposed onto the original chain where it is processed as a single transaction.

The benefits this presents are manyfold. By building a DEX platform powered by this technology, Mute has effectively done away with the problems that have made Uniswap, perhaps the most prominent DEX, at times unusable to many. Because many transactions can be processed instantaneously, congestion is no longer such an onerous burden on users and gas prices will not skyrocket. The Mute Switch platform, by using ZK Rollup technology, is able to operate at a far superior level to level 1 exchanges while maintaining the financial safety of users and offering privacy by default.

While Mute is on the verge of releasing the full version of Mute Switch, in the meantime you can get accustomed to the platform and check out what the future of defi looks like by previewing it here.

About Mute

Mute is a new project in the defi space intent on opening it up to everyone. The Mute ecosystem is powered by the $MUTE token which operates as the gas for Mute Switch. Mute is also a grassroots DAO and, as such, is governed by its community via its VOICE token.
