Biodiesel Coalition of Texas Executive Committee

Pioners and Industry Leaders

The Biodiesel Coalition of Texas, Inc. (BCOT) is a non-profit corporation created by biodiesel pioneers and industry leaders to ensure that biodiesel receives favorable treatment by state regulatory agencies and the Texas Legislature. Since its inception, BCOT has developed strategies to persuade the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality that their regulations should view biodiesel as part of the solution to Texas air quality challenges, not part of the problem. For example, the TCEQ-initiated low emission diesel (TxLED) program had the potential to devastate the emerging biodiesel industry in Texas (the largest in the country) unless the TCEQ recognized the net environmental benefits of this clean-burning, renewable fuel. However, BCOT and industry supporters pulled out a win, with the TCEQ ruling that up to B5 unadditized was a legal fuel in Texas, and blends of B6-B20 were legal with the approved additives (additives also needed in diesel fuel in Texas). With that ruling out of the gate, , BCOT?s long-term mission is to work with the public and private sector to foster the production, distribution and use of biodiesel in Texas.

There are three signals outlined by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) that alert individuals to the presence of a biohazard. This includes the word "biohazard", the biohazard symbol, or the fluorescent orange and red color coding.

When applying biohazard labels in a building or area that contains hazards, there are five main things that cannot be overlooked. Let's review these below.

Every industrial process requires raw materials to produce end products. The end products are never pure elements. Though the intended final product comes from the process, other elements are produced as well. The other elements may be considered waste and harmful. They could also be used for other processes if well harnessed and utilized. Whether useful or harmful, it does no one any good if the end products are not separated. An industrial filter separates the end products. Though they may not be considered the most crucial equipment in manufacturing processes, industrial filters are indispensable requirement. Different industrial processes utilize raw materials that are different in forms of matter, sizes and reactivity. They are essential in various industries such as pharmaceutical, food and beverage, cosmetic and chemical as they keep products consistent, clear, and uncontaminated. Due to the differing nature of industrial processes and different demands each industry has, there are different sorts of industrial filters. These include centrifugal filters, cartridge filters and panel filters.

Cabinet coolers are great for gaming consoles, all sorts of AV receivers and home entertainment systems. Even when these devices are not in continual use they have the potential to generate a lot of heat which could eventually lead to premature exhaustion and maltreatment of your devices and cause them to wear out sooner than they should. In the same manner, industrial cabinet cooler are fantastic for larger work spaces, offices and organizations that need to function at full speed without worrying about electronic systems failure and heat exhaustion.
