Oji Fiber Solutions has partnered with the government to explore the production of bioproducts at Kinleith Mill in Tokoroa.

The owners of Kinleith Mill have partnered with government to undertake a joint feasibility study into the production of sustainable wood products, hydrogen and biofuels.

Forests Minister Stuart Nash said the $2 million study would explore sustainable timber processing at the site owned by Oji Fiber Solutions in Tokoroa.

“In order to build a low-emission, high-wage economy, we must explore innovative and sustainable solutions across all sectors,” Nash said in a statement Thursday.

“In the wood processing sector, there is an opportunity to integrate bio-manufacturing, i.e. the production of high-value bio-energy and bio-chemicals through the development of an advanced bio-economy manufacturing cluster. »

He said the study was the perfect opportunity to think differently about the way wood is processed in New Zealand, harness the bioeconomy and harness valuable wood fiber by-products.

“Oji Fiber Solutions is a global leader in pulp, paper and packaging products, and the Kinleith mill employs over 500 people in South Waikato,” said Nash.

“Throughout this study, we will investigate how we can make high-value, sustainable bioproducts from wood.

“This could create highly skilled and well-paid jobs, as well as unlock regional economic opportunities and ultimately create a productive, sustainable and inclusive bioeconomy.”

This partnership is one of the first concrete actions resulting from the plan for the transformation of forestry and wood processing sectors launched in August.

A key objective of the plan is how to add value to the forestry sector by processing logs domestically rather than sending them overseas for other countries to extract value from.

“The forestry and wood processing sector has significant growth potential, and innovative ways of thinking like this will help the sector decarbonize, support local job creation and boost the economy. flyer,” Nash said.

The study would focus on opportunities to develop the Kinleith plant to commercially produce wood products such as biofuels – including sustainable aviation fuel, green hydrogen, bioplastics and fuel pellets.

It would also look at the costs of an upgrade to Kinleith Mill’s energy boilers, known as ‘energy island’, as well as third-party investment opportunities in the bioeconomy.

The feasibility study is expected to be completed in early 2023, after which decisions on next steps would be made.

Couldn’t attend Transform 2022? Discover all the summit sessions now in our on-demand library! Look here.


Abacus Insights recently announced the rollout of a suite of products that will “revolutionize” how healthcare payers can leverage healthcare data for faster and more effective decision-making.

Data infrastructure products are built on the company’s Data Transformation Platform, the only platform of its kind designed specifically for payers. The platform aims to solve many data problems faced by payers, including the collection, integration, validation and standardization of data from disparate internal and external systems, sources and formats.

“Our platform is focused on delivering high-quality data with optimal latency to accelerate business value for both analytical and operational use,” said Minal Patel, CEO and founder of the company, at VentureBeat. “Our data management products are a leap forward in data usability, as we continuously triage, aggregate and update validated and transformed data to meet the needs of specific business functions and strategic payer initiatives. »

Healthcare data solutions for payers

Abacus Insights currently offers three data products on the market:

Event

MetaBeat 2022

MetaBeat will bring together thought leaders to advise on how metaverse technology will transform the way all industries communicate and do business on October 4 in San Francisco, California.

  • The CMS interoperability solution helps meet Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services interoperability requirements for patient access.
  • The risk adjustment solution improves the accuracy of risk adjustment while simplifying the complex process of government-sponsored and commercial ACA plans.
  • The clinical data solution integrates clinical data with core administrative and health equity data in longitudinal member and patient records to provide a holistic view of the care journey.

Over the next few months, Patel said the company will be rolling out data integration products to support:

  • Self-funded employers
  • Management of pharmacy/specialty services
  • Behavioral health
  • Cost of care management
  • Telehealth

Payer Priorities Drive Features in New Product Development

Abacus Insights products are essential building blocks that address major payer priorities, including improving the member experience, controlling costs and improving health outcomes, Patel says. They do this by taking volumes of data and making it eminently and immediately usable by identifying and aggregating timely, complete and accurate data to enable business units to manage and optimize their operations.

“Take the risk adjustment. To ensure appropriate resources for seniors, children, and other members with high needs in Medicare, Medicaid, and the Affordable Care Trade Act, health plans must conduct accurate assessments of the health status of each member and projecting expected member costs through the risk adjustment process,” notes Patel. “This requires accurate, timely and comprehensive data that is continuously updated. Reimbursement from risk-adjusted plans represents up to one-third of a payer’s annual earnings.

Yet this critical function is becoming increasingly complex and difficult due to underlying health data challenges, says Patel. These challenges include:

  • Integrate disparate payer sources, including claims, eligibility, case files, and notes at scale, which are presented in various legacy formats, systems, and platforms.
  • Incorporate external data from electronic medical records, laboratories, and other clinical sources, as well as information on health equity and social determinants.
  • Work with and share this data with multiple stakeholders (such as risk adjustment analysis providers), each requiring different slices of data and integration models, with some calculations even varying by procedure.
  • Adapt to frequent changes in the regulations that govern the plans, requiring regular process updates and changes to data specifications.
  • Meeting quarterly reporting and other risk-adjustment requirements that 60% of payers say they struggle with.
  • Multiplication of the number and variety of reimbursement models based on risk adjustment data.

A data platform developed specifically for healthcare payers

Patel points out that Abacus has developed the only data transformation platform designed specifically for payers. Its ability to collect, integrate, validate and standardize internal and external payer data is unmatched in the market, and the company manages the data of 21 million members, he said.

“We are application independent. Our data transformation platform and data solutions are not tied to any specific analytical or other application, giving payers greater freedom to meet their needs through any existing or new software applications,” notes Patel. . “Our platform and solutions are scalable, compliant and secure, with solutions going live within 4 months versus 1 year or more for a fully-built approach.”

Focusing on specific tasks, Patel says, “Our risk adjustment solution simplifies the growing complexity of risk scoring and calculation by providing correct, complete and timely data tailored to each health plan.”

Customers can “leverage our data solutions to manage their business units, make better decisions faster and improve reporting compliance. We send automated, personalized data feeds for marketing purposes. With easy-to-use dashboards, the solutions also bring together analytics and other information from various business unit applications to give operational executives a comprehensive, real-time view of their entire business unit,” Patel said.

Also, importantly, Patel says the company separates the data from analytics or any other specific application. He explained that this gives CIOs greater control and flexibility over data, as the data products work with all payer software applications old or new.

Focusing on the quality of health data is more critical than ever

While the focus on data quality is absolutely right and fundamental, healthcare cannot afford to stop there. The value of high-quality data lies in its ease of use, Patel stressed.

Building validated data lakes is an important stepping stone, but it’s not the end of the journey, Patel explained. The opportunity lies in extracting streams of useful information that lead to:

  • More appropriate, equitable and quality care.
  • Improved experiences for members, patients and providers.
  • Better and faster analysis and decision making.
  • More effective and efficient business operations.
  • Increased compliance.
  • Reduction of medical waste.
  • Cost reduction.
  • Innovation.

“Health is always working to ensure its data is up-to-date, complete and accurate. This is a growing challenge as health data, especially unstructured data – which is an estimated 80% of all health data – is growing exponentially,” Patel explained. “This is a multi-faceted challenge, including collecting all the correct data, cleaning it, storing it, protecting it, updating it, querying it, etc.”

Data interoperability is a springboard for better healthcare data and analytics, Patel said. The government’s deployment of the FHIR standard for exchanging information in medical records is a significant step forward in interoperability, as are payer interoperability requirements for CMS programs to provide patients with access to their records. The first wave of CMS interoperability requirements came into effect last year with more expected in 2023, which inspired Abacus’ CMS interoperability solution.

“Good data is a prerequisite for analysis — or really any use — because garbage goes in, garbage goes out,” Patel said. “That’s why we focus on data quality and usability.”

There are important reminders from Health Canada for cycling fanatics as well as parents in Mississauga and Brampton.

Trek-brand bicycle handlebars are being recalled because they can break and send the rider headlong.

And a children’s activity desk and water-filled teethers are being recalled this week due to choking hazards and microbial contamination. See below for more information on each specific recall.


Carbon handlebars/stems and Trek bikes

Risk: Trek Carbon handlebars/stems and some bikes are being recalled due to a fall hazard. The following three products are affected: Trek MY22 Speed ​​Concept SLR bikes, Trek MY21-MY22 Emonda SLR bikes, and Bontrager Aeolus RSL VR-C handlebar/stem.

The carbon bar can break during use, posing a tripping hazard. The affected products were sold from June 2020 to June 2022.

As of August 17, 2022, the company has received an incident report in Canada regarding the Aeolus handlebar/stem resulting in concussion, stitches and dental injury.

What you should do: Immediately stop using the replacement bikes and handlebars/stem. Contact your local authorized Trek dealer to arrange a free repair. For more information, visit the Trek Bicycle Canada website here.


Kidoozie Brand My First Activity Desk

Risk: Kidoozie’s “My First Activity Desk” brand is being recalled due to the potential for jaw jamming and risk of protrusion.

The model number for this product is G02587 with UPC 020373035875. The activity desk is intended for use by children 12 months and older. It has removable legs and adjustable cradle straps and has the following dimensions: 38.1cm x 8.3cm x 26.7cm.

The recalled product may pose a jamming and jaw protrusion hazard when used as a crib toy. When a child’s jaw gets stuck in a product, there is a risk of damage to teeth and gums.

The company reported that 1,826 units of the affected product were sold in Canada from January 2020 to March 2022.

Who are you and what is mountainFLOW?

My name is Peter Arlein and I am the founder and CEO of mountainFLOW. mountainFLOW is a leading manufacturer of plant-based, high performance bicycle care products.

Peter Arlein wants his products to be clean and his face to be dirty.

How did the idea for mountainFLOW come about? What is the origin story of the company?

In 2016, mountainFLOW started as an eco-friendly ski waxing company. We realized that almost all ski wax on the market was made from petroleum and all of that wax was poured directly into the snowpack and then into the watershed. mountainFLOW has developed a patented wax formula that is biodegradable, non-toxic and made entirely from plants. Our wax is now used by some of the best skiers and snowboarders in the world, including World Cup champions and Olympic medalists.

In 2020, mountainFLOW recognized a similar opportunity in the bicycle industry. The vast majority of bicycle lubricants come from the automotive industry and are made from petroleum. Similar to ski wax, bicycle lubricant, whether during application, riding or cleaning, is introduced directly into the environment. mountainFLOW has developed a complete line of high performance bike care products featuring biodegradable, non-toxic, plant-based lubricant, cleaner and grease.

Why did you see the need in the outdoor industry for environmentally friendly products like the ones you make?

The use of petroleum-based bicycle lubricant is a classic micro-pollution problem. Individually, each rider puts a very small amount of lubricant into the environment. Overall, however, there are literally tons of petroleum oils introduced into our favorite mountain playgrounds every year. Additionally, some of the popular additives, such as PTFE, are toxic and bioaccumulative, which means that once in the environment, they stay there forever and will never break down.

We saw an opportunity to create a product line that offered the same level of performance without any negative impact on the environment. As consumers, we should demand more from our brands in the outdoor industry. Technology is now available for performance and durability and we should demand both.

What about the company you are most proud of?

I’m really proud of our determination/obstinacy to only release products that meet our performance and durability standards. Our team is made up of passionate bikers and skiers and we must be able to guarantee 110% of all our products. It’s now fashionable for every brand, whether it’s bicycle lube or ski wax, to offer at least one token eco-friendly product, when 99% of the product range is still made from petroleum and/or PTFE. mountainFLOW does the opposite – 100% of our products are sustainable and non-toxic. As such, we have become experts in developing environmentally friendly products and believe that our products can rival the performance of any other product on the market.

I noticed that you focus a lot on developing sustainable packaging, not just the products themselves. Could you tell me a bit more about that?

We strive to offer the most sustainable packaging on the market. It’s dishonest to create bicycle lube without petroleum and then dump it in a regular plastic bottle. All of our bicycle lubricant bottles are made from 100% post-consumer recycled plastic.

Additionally, our Bike Wash + Degreaser is packaged in a cardboard bottle with a thin plastic liner. This packaging uses 70% less plastic than a traditional plastic bottle.

Sourcing sustainable packaging is easier than you might think and often results in an interesting new look that can really help the product stand out on the shelf.

The Bike Wash + Degreaser comes in a cardboard bottle thinly lined with plastic.

It seems like one of the most effective ways to carve out a niche in the bike world would be to collaborate with other companies, and I think you’ve done a bit of that. Is it correct? Could you tell me a bit more about that?

We have just launched our Bike Private Label program and already work with a handful of established bike brands. These partnerships have a wide range of cooperation…some brands use our products on their demo bikes so that their staff are not exposed to the toxins found in traditional bike lubricants and other brands have opted for a full line of white label products. Seeing the trust that other bike brands have in our products is really awesome. We’re excited for the early traction of this program and have some big partnerships coming up, so stay tuned.

Private Label collaborations on the ski side of the business have been quite robust. We have partnered with The North Face, Nordica, POW (Protect Our Winters), Winter Wildlands Alliances, National Ski Patrol, WNDR Alpine and many more. Private labeling is quite a unique offering in the ski and bike worlds and we are delighted to be able to offer it.

Why aren’t more companies focusing on eco-friendly bike care products?

Well, it’s not easy to create a high-performance, environmentally friendly product. Petroleum-based lubricants are readily available and relatively inexpensive. These products have been around for decades and have had a lot of success, so it’s often easier to stay the course. While these products still dominate the market, we are witnessing the beginnings of a radical change. Consumers demand more from their favorite bike brands. In the future, I think we will see a greater selection of eco-friendly bike care products on the market.

What are the challenges of starting a small commodity brand in the bike (and ski) industry?

You said it in the question – “commodity”. We build a brand around a product that is generally considered a commodity. We have a unique brand story and do something different from the mainstream. This type of effort takes time. There is also an educational component that comes with our product – how is mountainFLOW different? Why is it important to use an eco-friendly bicycle lubricant? Does it even work?

We’ve been on the road all spring and summer. Talking to people at mountainFLOW and more importantly lubricating their chains so they can experience the product for themselves. Once people learn more about traditional lubes and realize that there are now more sustainable alternatives, they buy into the product pretty quickly.

What changes would you like to see in terms of sustainability in the bicycle industry in the future?

We’ve proven that durability and high performance don’t have to be mutually exclusive. We would like to see more brands join this philosophy.

What would you like to see mountainFLOW achieve in the future?

mountainFLOW is just getting started. In just a few years, we’ve built a loyal following of riders who swear by our products. It is both extremely motivating and humiliating. We are excited to continue to drive petroleum-based products away from the outdoor industry.

Is there anything else you would like us to know?

Just try our products, we know you’ll love them. And, if you have any questions, call us – (970) 340 – 8604 or visit us at www.mountainflow.com. We are always happy to talk shop.
