New natural gas plants will have to pay carbon tax on all emissions

first_imgThe federal government is increasing the carbon tax on new natural-gas plants to discourage power companies from building them.The change is part of final regulations for the government’s carbon-tax system for big industrial greenhouse-gas emitters, which are being released this week.The system affects businesses that produce more than 50,000 tonnes of greenhouse gases a year.- Advertisement -It is designed to limit impacts on competitiveness for major industrial emitters, who will pay the carbon tax on a portion of what they emit rather than on all the fuels that they use.The emission standard set for natural-gas power plants originally meant that new ones would likely never pay any carbon tax, which was a disincentive for power companies to turn to renewable-energy sources instead of gas.The change made this week means new natural-gas plants will have their emissions standard toughened each year after 2021, until in 2030 they will pay the carbon price on every ounce of their emissions.Advertisementlast_img read more

Ten-man Gor held by USM Alger in Confed tie

PHOTO/Raymond MakhayaNAIROBI, Kenya, May 16- Ten-man Gor Mahia was held to a barren draw by Algerian side USM Alger in a Group D CAF Confederation Cup tie staged at a soggy Moi Sports Centre Kasarani on Wednesday night.The 16-time Kenyan Premier League champions had to play over 35 minutes of the match with one man less after defender Joash Onyango was sent off for a second yellow card, but they managed to hold their own and even had chances to win the clash. It was the same old story for K’Ogalo as they created many open scoring opportunities but they couldn’t finish any of them, settling for their second consecutive draw in the competition.It wasn’t the best of evenings for both clubs before the tie.Huge traffic along the Thika Super Highway saw the two teams arrive in the stadium late, an hour to kick-off and they had to contend with less than 15 minutes of warm up on the pitch.Officials of both teams had to disembark from their vehicles to open up the congested highway, seeing them arrive in the stadium a few minutes past 6pm.The conditions on the pitch were not helping either. Heavy rains that had hit the city for close to two hours in the evening saw the newly laid ground fail to hold and at times the players had difficulty moving the ball around the pitch.But it was the visitors who had a faster start to the tie.Winger Abderahmane Meziane was a constant threat for the Gor backline with his pace and trickery on the ball and just three minutes in, he had shouts for a penalty assumed by the referee when he went down inside the box from a Joash Onyango challenge.On the other end, Gor had their first effort at goal seven minutes into the game when George ‘Blackberry’ Odhiambo turned to his favorite right foot from the left side of the pitch but his rising shot was no trouble for USM goalkeeper Mohamed Lamine.In the 14th minute, USM’s Ayub Abdellaoui made a superb tackle at the edge of the box to pluck the ball away from Ephraim Guikan as the Ivorian surged forward on goal from a sleek Odhiambo through pass.The visitors had started with the tempo high but seemed to tire as the game progressed, with Gor picking up the cue and building up the tempo passing the ball around the park well.-Guikan chance-A sweeping team move from Gor in the 22nd minute almost bore fruit for the opener but Guikan’s glancing header was saved by the keeper.The Ivorian adjusted his body well from a tight angle to swing the ball at goal after being picked out with a well weighted cross from Godfrey Walusimbi.On the half hour mark, Gor should have surely been ahead.An interchange of passes on the right wing saw the ball fall on the impressive Francis Kahata and the left footed player took a first time cross into the box with his weaker right, landing on an unmarked Odhiambo.Gor Mahia’s Ephraim Guikan vies for the ball with USM Alger’s Mohammed Bekhenmassa during a CAF Confederation Cup match at the Kasarani Stadium on May 16, 2018. PHOTO/Raymond MakhayaHowever, the winger’s header was stopped by a brilliant save from Lamine and the rebound blasted against the upright.On the other end, USM had penalty appeals ignored by the ref again, though this time he seemed to have thought about it with the whistle headed to his mouth after the ball seemed to have knocked Kahata’s arms as he controlled defending a freekick inside the box.A minute to the break, Guikan had another chance when his connection at the near post from a Walusimbi delivery was blocked for a corner.-Second half-Just like they did in the first, the visitors had a better second half start and four minutes in, an unmarked Rafik Bouderbal saw his volley from the right go over.In the eighth minute, Alger had an even closer chance when Faouzi Yaya’s shot after dancing past a forest of legs in the box was blocked and  Mohammed Meftah’s effort from the rebound went inches wide with Boniface Oluoch beaten.Gor’s drive was hugely punctured in the 55th minute when Oluoch was booked for the second time in the game after shoving down Yaya on the right.Kerr’s reaction was to shift Mieno into central defense while Tuyisenge dropped deeper into midfield leaving Guikan as the lone attacker.The visitors responded with an attacking change, Oualid Ardji replacing Bouderbal in attack. They had a few minutes of dominance, but again, it was Gor who pulled up double the effort.They had a brilliant scoring opportunity in the 66th minute which once again went to waste. Tuyisenge’s shot from distance was spilled by the goalkeeper and the Rwandese raced to the rebound but took too many touches on the ball, allowing the defense to race back and clear.Francis Kahata had another effort minutes later with a low shot from the right which was deflected for a corner.On the other end, Mohammed Benyahia almost caught Boniface Oluoch off his line with a shot from distance, but the effort went wide.0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today)last_img

ROAD BARRIER PLAN THREATENS FUTURE OF 22 JOBS AT LETTERKENNY STORE

first_imgThe future of one of Donegal’s best known businesses hangs in the balance after a decision by the National Roads Authority to erect a barrier outside the premises.The Mace convenience store and restaurant at Dry Arch Roundabout in Letterkenny, which employs 22 people on a full and part-time basis, is a hugely-popular stopping point for shoppers.But now the NRA told its owners that they are cutting off a filter lane on the main N14 road into the store. The NRA claims the filter lane is a safety hazard and plan to erect barriers to prevent motorists from turn right when coming into Letterkenny from the Derry Road.Management at the store say the move will cut its business by 50% and they will be left with no option but to close its doors.The workforce has already dwindled from 33 down to 22 because of the recession and management say they simply cannot afford any more cuts.A spokesman for the store told Donegaldaily.com that staff have been informed of the situation that they could close. “If this decision goes ahead then we will have no choice but to close the premises.“People will not go all the way into the Pole Star roundabout and then turn back – it doesn’t make sense.“We are talking about losing 50% of our business and I cannot afford to do that in the current climate.“We are barely making ends meet because of the rising cost of electricity and other things.“The staff know about the situation and they know our hands are tied. We are in the hands of the NRA at the moment but it seems the decision has already been made,” he said. The NRA claims the filter lane into the shop is a safety hazard.However the spokesman for Mace at the Dry Arch said safety has never been an issue.“I cannot ever remember a crash from a car crossing from the filter lane into our premises.“There is adequate space and plenty of long breaks in the traffic flow for people to cross. “I just do not accept that as a reason,” he said.Management at the store, who have had two meetings already with the NRA, say work on the barriers could begin later this month or in October.EndROAD BARRIER PLAN THREATENS FUTURE OF 22 JOBS AT LETTERKENNY STORE was last modified: September 2nd, 2011 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:Dry Arch ComplexMaceNRAlast_img read more
