  • Hydro-Pumped Storage Plants Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Trends, Analysis, Growth and Forecast, 2014 - 2020

    By - Transparency

    The increasing demand for energy storage systems and emergence ancillary services is one of the main market drivers for pumped storage hydro in the future. Hydro-pumped storage plants system is a form of hydroelectric energy storage used by the power industry for the purposes of peak shaving and load balancing. In hydro-pumped storage plants, water flows from a lower elevation reservoir to another reservoir at a higher elevation where it is stored. During times of peak demand this stored water is utilized to run turbines whereas the low cost off-peak electric power is used to pump back...

    New molecules developed by Segetis, in Minnesota based on esters of levulinic acid made from using bio based hydroxyl compounds and corn cobs are known as levulinic ketals. These can be used to produce a series of products such as plasticizers, polyols for polyurethane foams and solvents. Segetis are constructing a new toll manufacturing plant for their new ketals chemistry in the Midwest and the construction of which was expected to be completed by the end of 2011. Products entering the market would start with solvents. While polyols is expected to be the last to enter in...

  • Ischemia Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast 2014 - 2020

    By - Transparency

    Ischemia is characterized by a specific condition, where there is an insufficient flow of blood supply to tissues, leading to a shortage of oxygen and glucose which is needed for cellular metabolism. Due to an obstruction and insufficient blood supply, various organs and tissue get severely damaged. Ischemia, if left untreated, may lead to tissue death. Ischemia is primarily caused by thrombosis of an artery, embolism, vasculitis, atherosclerosis, coronary artery disease and peripheral artery disease. There are various types of ischemia with different diagnosis and treatment...
