Poland will wait to see how the political and legal situation develops in the United States before recognising Joe Biden as the new president, Foreign Minister Zbigniew Rau said on Tuesday. Biden's victory on Nov. 3 is awkward for Warsaw's right-wing conservative government, which set great store by its relationship with Trump, securing a pledge of a permanent U.S. military deployment, while straining the tolerance of Brussels and European Union allies over its handling of democratic values.

EDF has called for partners to help it test the viability of producing hydrogen and technology to remove carbon dioxide from the air at is planned Sizewell C project in the southeast of England. Britain plans to increase the use of hydrogen fuel to help meet its climate target of net zero emissions by 2050 and is likely to also need carbon removal technology to meet the goal. France's EDF is building Britain's first new nuclear plant in more than two decades, Hinkley Point C, with backing from China's CGN.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer expects to be able to call upon Paul Pogba tonight as Manchester United return to Champions League action against Istanbul Basaksehir. The midfielder was conspicuous by his absence from the squad for Saturday's 1-0 win against West Brom, but should shake off a knock to face the Turkish side. Dean Henderson made his European debut against Basaksehir in gameweek three and has since gone on to make his senior England bow.

DGAP-News: Nouveau Monde Graphite / Key word(s): Sustainability 24.11.2020 / 09:00 The issuer is solely responsible for the content of this announcement. - As a world first for open-pit mining, Nouveau Monde is committed to the exclusive use of all-electrical equipment and vehicles as it develops and expands its mining operations - A substantial fleet of an initial 60 vehicles will be commissioned. The selection process for the all-electrical equipment will focus on efficiency, duability, performance and ability to recycle the equipment - Based in Québec, Canada, Nouveau Monde will benefit from the 100% use of green hydro-generated electricity to power its equipment and vehicles - Nouveau Monde will also benefit from the implementation of Québec's electrification strategy with incentives for economic development in this growth sector - Nouveau Monde is leading the way on sustainable mining through its carbon-neutrality commitment to cater responsibly sourced and transformed battery materials to EV and renewable energy storage manufacturers MONTREAL, CANADA, November 24, 2020 - Set to become the world's first all-electric open-pit mine, Nouveau Monde Graphite ("Nouveau Monde" or "the Company") (TSXV: NOU; OTCQX: NMGRF; Frankfurt: NM9) is advancing its procurement process for its fleet and charging infrastructure through an international call for pre-qualification. Yet another step towards achieving its carbon-neutrality vision, adopting an all-electric operating model provides tremendous environmental benefits as well as long-term savings for the Company thanks to Québec's clean and affordable hydropower. Following work by its International Task Force Committee, Nouveau Monde has explored technologies, best practices and operational parameters to bring its vision to life in a cost-effective and technologically advanced way. Discussions with manufacturers have already enabled to identify existing machinery in development and/or available, notably for the ancillary fleet where purchasing agreements are being finalized. Through the call for pre-qualification, large OEMs and innovative SMEs alike are now invited to submit detailed proposals and performance specs for their production equipment solutions. Whether powered by lithium-ion batteries, plug-in systems or hydrogen fuel cells, Nouveau Monde is seeking the best zero emission equipment for heavy-duty operations and harsh conditions associated with open-pit mining. Pre-qualification technical documents, with requirements and contact info, can be consulted here: www.nouveaumonde.group/qualification-electric-fleet. The submission period is open from November 30, 2020, to January 30, 2021. Québec, Canada features renowned environmental standards, innovative talents, business-forward policies and virtually unlimited hydropower, making it an ideal playground for OEMs to build and deploy their electric solutions. In line with their electrification strategy, both Québec and Canadian governments are investing in cleantech through financial incentives, development programs and infrastructure to propel growth in the already-booming electric industrial hub. Thus, Nouveau Monde has been selected as key partner to develop a new electric propulsion system with a rapid recharging infrastructure adapted to heavy vehicles in the open-pit mining industry.

"We are thrilled to be driving innovation and progress in our sector and hope to see our peers embark in this effort to minimize the footprint of the mining industry. Our initial market screening has already shown attractive technologies and ingenious mindset from OEMs that will enable us to achieve our carbon-neutrality promise to our community, shareholders and customers." "When Nouveau Monde started its journey, the notion of sustainability and carbon neutrality was already part of its DNA. Today's announcement further delivers on this philosophy," said Arne H. Frandsen, Chairman of Nouveau Monde. Accelerating Electrification Deployment The most advanced graphite project in North America, Nouveau Monde is targeting the launch of its commercial operations in 2023, with an allocated transition period to fully electrify its fleet by 2028. The Company's demonstration plant already in production offers in the meantime an ideal site to test equipment in real conditions, optimise design and advance technology. The construction of a dedicated power line to supply the mining site will guarantee a reliable, affordable and clean supply of hydroelectricity to support Nouveau Monde's energy-intensive operations. Nouveau Monde is releasing the full scope and specs of its future fleet as part of this call for pre-qualification, covering a fleet of over 60 equipment, from main production to auxiliary, maintenance, and infrastructure for a truly 100%-electric operation. This complete transparency approach is aimed at sharing knowledge gathered over the past four years and encouraging peers to adopt such sustainable mining standards. With that spirit, Nouveau Monde is proud to be acting as an enabler into the zero-emission heavy-duty operations and is welcoming any industrial operators in mining, quarry and/or construction sectors to reach out to its technical team with questions and interests. Correspondingly, CEO Eric Desaulniers will also join Benchmark Mineral Intelligence's Battery Sustainability Summit on Friday, December 11 at 11:00 a.m. EST to discuss this electrification commitment and the push towards zero-carbon solutions for electric vehicles and energy storage systems. About Nouveau Monde Nouveau Monde will be a key operator in the sustainable energy revolution. The Company is developing the only fully integrated source of green battery anode material in the Western World. Targeting full-scale commercial operations by early 2023, the Company will provide advanced carbon-neutral graphite-based material solutions to the growing lithium-ion and fuel cell markets. With low-cost operations and the highest of ESG standards, Nouveau Monde will become a strategic supplier to the world's leading battery and auto manufacturers, ensuring robust and reliable advanced material, while guaranteeing supply chain traceability.

Edison Investment Research Limited 24-Nov-2020 / 08:00 GMT/BST London, UK, 24 November 2020 Quadrise Fuels International (QFI): The clean solution to a global problem Quadrise has developed a synthetic heavy fuel oil technology that potentially improves the profitability of refineries producing heavy fuel oil (HFO) and upstream operations, as well as reducing costs and polluting emissions for HFO users in the power, industrial and marine bunker markets. The company has recently completed a pilot trial in Morocco, with a trial at a US site scheduled for completion in calendar Q121. These trials are to demonstrate the efficacy of MSAR ahead of potential progression to commercial supply in calendar H221. It is also in discussions about projects in Ecuador, Mexico and Saudi Arabia and with two major shipping companies. Based on data from the company, our scenario analysis calculates that even modest adoption of MSAR would generate material profits. A single refinery producing MSAR equivalent to 1.9Mtpa HFO under a licensing model would generate $15.9m in annual EBITDA (see page 13 for more details). Click here to view the full report.
