Se invitará a los participantes a discutir los problemas actuales relacionados al control y estrategia operativa con el instructor. La duración de la presentación es de aproximadamente 45 minutos con 15 minutos para preguntas al final.
As the world’s largest consumer of coal and leading CO2 emitter, China’s role in the international effort to combat climate change can hardly be overstated. The challenges China faces to control emission and pollution levels while meeting the country’s increasing energy demand are enormous. Over the years, China has made considerable efforts to reduce CO2 emissions and control pollution levels, and notable progress has been made through the implementation of ambitious programmes aimed at improving energy efficiency across a number of industrial sectors and a rapid scale up of renewable energy. This study reviews China’s policy and regulatory initiatives, in particular those aimed at improving energy efficiency and reducing emissions, HELE (high efficiency low emissions) upgrades, diversify the energy mix, as well as the progress to date in reaching a series of ambitious goals. China’s rapid expansion of non-fossil energy which affects the structural change of the power sector and coal use in electricity generation, and therefore, CO2 emissions from coal-fired power generation are also discussed.
China has provided strong financing and policy support for the R&D of HELE technologies. China now possesses a range of HELE technologies that are applicable to new and/or retrofitting of the existing coal-fired power plants and they are described in the webinar. Finally, the peak of coal consumption and CO2 emissions from power generation from coal, in light of China’s economic and policy trends affecting the structure of the economy and the coal consumption, are assessed.
The topic in focus will be ‘flotation control and operating philosophy,’ and Outotec will demonstrate the importance of having maximum control over a flotation plant. Some of the basic and advanced tools that have been developed will be introduced to participants, and how to build a successful control strategy will be discussed – highlighting the difference between the stabilization and optimization of a plant. Participants will be invited to discuss current issues in control and operating philosophy with the presenter. Duration of the presentation is approximately 45 minutes with 15 minutes Q&A at the end.
El tema a tratar será el de ‘Modernizaciones y mejoras para plantas de flotación’, y la importancia que tienen las modernizaciones a plantas y equipos de flotación operando bajo las condiciones adversas de la industria de la minería en la actualidad.
Con más de 100 años de desarrollo, Outotec ha logrado avances substanciales en tecnologías de flotación y control. Las nuevas tecnologías pueden ser utilizadas para reemplazar o mejorar los equipos existentes, logrando así mayores niveles de eficiencia, usabilidad, confiabilidad, estabilidad y flexibilidad. Los cambios en los cuerpos de mineral finalmente resultan en la necesidad de implementar cambios en los equipos existentes. Outotec explorará estos cambios y los últimos desarrollos en tecnología con los participantes, presentando herramientas simples que los asistentes podrán usar para identificar preliminarmente mejoras y sus beneficios. La duración de la presentación es de aproximadamente 45 minutos con 15 minutos para preguntas al final.
Join Experis Finance for a complimentary, virtual panel webinar focused on whether or not your AML models for transaction monitoring perform according to regulatory expectations.
Regulatory guidance requires independent validation of models used for risk management purposes, including AML systems. Greater emphasis is being placed on institutions to identify suspicious activity and ensure that the models used are effective. This panel, which includes both community bank and large bank perspectives, will discuss the independent validation of transaction monitoring systems, examples of typical validation findings, and the development of an action plan to address the results of a validation.
After attending this webinar,
•You will begin to understand the necessary components of Data Management as it relates to the set-up of Transaction Monitoring Systems
•You will understand the current rules-based systems, the newer behavioral-based systems, and how they work
•You will understand the basics of how to select a new transaction monitoring system
•You will understand the next generation of Cyber Threats and how they differ from traditional attacks

Global energy demand is rising, while water is becoming a scarcer commodity in many parts of the world due to over-exploitation, droughts, heat waves, and other factors. Meeting the growing demand will place
increasing stress on limited fresh water resources. The power generation industry is typically the largest industrial user of fresh water in a country. Consequently, the vulnerability of the power generation
industry to constraints in water availability can be expected to increase. Hence non-fresh water sources will become increasingly important. This report examines the availability and use of potential non-fresh water sources in China, India, South Africa and the USA. These are the four top thermal coal consuming countries in the world. The alternative sources are municipal waste water, brackish and sea water, mine
water, produced water from oil and gas wells (including coalbed methane wells), and water extracted from deep saline aquifers during CO2 storage. In certain cases, and with suitable design of the on-site
water treatment plant, a coal-fired power plant could become a supplier of both energy and fresh water, instead of a water consumer.
The topic in focus will be ‘flotation modernizations and upgrades,’ and their vital importance in improving plants and processes operating under the current pressure of the mineral processing industry. With over 100 years of development, advances in flotation technology and controls have been substantial. New technology can be used to replace or improve existing equipment, leading to greater levels of efficiency, usability, reliability, stability and flexibility. Changes in ore bodies mean that subsequent changes in equipment are also required – Outotec will explore these changes and latest developments with participants, introducing some simple tools that the audience can use to make preliminary assessments. Duration of the presentation is approximately 45 minutes with 15 minutes Q&A at the end.
Signalhorn’s Chief IT Security Officer (CISO) Istvan Rabai presents an overview of present-day IT security.
The focus of this webinar will be on identifying specific vulnerabilities and measures to improve the security of a communication network.
Istvan will show - from his own first-hand experience, how an actual incident became the catalyst for the implementation of a state-of-the-art secure infrastructure that currently serves an impressive number of Government, NGO and security sensitive Corporate customers.
The webinar will cover several key aspects, but as there is no blueprint solution for all security issues, you will have the opportunity to address yours individually in the Q&A discussion at the end of the session.
This is what you will learn in this session:
- Main aspects of IT security
- Essential steps to guarantee IT security
- Typical preventive measures
- Typical redundant managed networks
- Case study: The Signalhorn IT security story
In this session, 6x Microsoft MVP and Sr. Solutions Specialist, Duncan McAlynn, will have a discussion with Logun Baker, Senior Systems Administrator for The Huntington National Bank, regarding the challenges of 3rd party application patching within their enterprise and how they have solved those problems
During the webinar, McAlynn will also be demonstrating how PatchLink natively plugs into the SCCM Admin Console, providing seamless integration into existing patch management workflows without any additional client deployment, infrastructure requirements or added consoles.
-Hear a real-world case study from a customer that addresses 3rd party patching to protect and defend themselves against malware/randsomware within their enterprise
