Can lenders to Jet afford to accept employees proposal to revive the

first_imgWorkers cover the cockpit window of a Jet Airways aircraft parked at the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport in Mumbai, on March 26.ReutersA consortium of employees of beleaguered Jet Airways faces an uphill task in its attempt for a role in the airline’s debt rescue plan that the lenders are trying to implement. The employees including some pilots, senior engineers and others claim that they can mobilize up to Rs 3,000 crore to keep the airline afloat.The lenders’ consortium headed by the State Bank of India (SBI) is awaiting financial bids from the four prospective investors who submitted their expressions of interest (EoI) before the deadline earlier this month. They have time until May 10 to come up with viable binding financial bids individually or in partnership with one or the other bidders. United Arab Emirates (UAE) national carrier Etihad Airways, which is the strategic partner of Jet Airways, is the only airline among the bidders. The Abu Dhabi-based carrier already owns 24 per cent stake in Jet and the rescue plan envisages the airline increasing this stake.There are two US-based private equity firms, TPG Capital and Indigo Partners, among the bidders trying their luck in one of the world’s fastest-growing aviation markets. Of them, Indigo Partners already has major stakes in two airlines in the Americas. The fourth bidder is the state-owned investment promotion entity, the National Investment, and Industry Fund (NIIF), which has little exposure to the aviation industry. In July 2017, Jet Airways had asked its junior pilots, who joined the brand in 2016, to take a 30 percent pay cut or leave. ReutersThe Jet employees’ group has approached the SBI Capital Markets Ltd, which is overseeing the implementation of the debt rescue plan but is yet to get a response. Industry sources, however, think the more viable route for the employees would have been to tie up with one of the bidders had already submitted their EoI before the deadline.The primary concern of the lenders, who are desperate to recover at least a part of their loans to the ailing airline, will be the financial viability of any proposal. The lenders control 50.1 per cent stake in the airline after the debt-equity swap and are offering up to 75 per cent stake to prospective investors. Airline founder Naresh Goyal’s share is now about 21 per cent, which may finally be reduced to 9 per cent, according to some reports. The prospective investors have hit the lenders with suggestions that they accept up to 80 per cent haircut to ensure the financial viability of the resurrected airline.The Jet Airways share fell further on Tuesday in early trade, plummeting to around Rs 150 after opening the day at Rs 162.70. The share that closed last month at Rs 268, has steadily fallen as the drama has unfolded. It opened the year at Rs 280.last_img read more

Digitally printed cyanobacteria can power small electronic devices

Credit: M. Sawa et al. Nature Communications The scientists, at Imperial College London and University of Cambridge, have published a paper on the new biophotovoltaic cell in a recent issue of Nature Communications.”Our biophotovoltaic device is biodegradable and in the future could serve as a disposable solar panel and battery that can decompose in our composts or gardens,” coauthor Marin Sawa at University of Arts London and Imperial College London told Phys.org. “Cheap, accessible, environmentally friendly, biodegradable batteries without any heavy metals and plastics—this is what we and our environment really need but don’t have just yet, and our work has shown that it is possible to have that.”In general, biophotovoltaic cells contain some type of cyanobacteria or algae that is phototrophic, meaning it converts light into energy. However, even in the dark these organisms continue to generate some energy by metabolizing their internal storage reserves. So when the organisms are connected to a non-biological electrode, they can function as either a “bio solar panel” when exposed to light or a “solar bio-battery” in the dark.Currently one of the biggest challenges facing biophotovoltaic cells is producing them on a large scale. Typically, the organisms are deposited onto an electrode surface from a bulky liquid reservoir. In the new study, the researchers demonstrated that inkjet printing can be used to print both the carbon nanotube electrode surface and the cyanobacteria on top of it, while allowing the bacteria to remain fully viable. This approach not only allows the cells to be fabricated quickly, but the set-up is also more compact and allows for greater precision in cell design.With these advantages, the inkjet-printed biophotovoltaic cells can generate a maximum current density that is 3-4 times higher than cells fabricated using conventional methods. To demonstrate, the researchers showed that nine connected cells can power a digital clock or generate flashes of light from an LED, illustrating the ability to produce short bursts of relatively high power. The researchers also showed that the cells can generate a continuous power output over the course of a 100-hour period consisting of light and dark cycles.In the future, the researchers plan to develop thin-film biophotovoltaic (BPV) panels and also explore potential applications as integrated power supplies in the areas of point-of-care medical diagnostics and environmental monitoring, both of which benefit from disposable, environmentally friendly biosensors. Another potential application is a bioenergy wallpaper.”The bioenergy wallpaper is a scaled-up application of our BPV system,” Sawa said. “The wallpaper will have carbon-based conductive patterns with electron-producing cyanobacteria. It turns an interior surface into an energy harvester to drive low-power applications like LED lights and/or biosensors, which can, for example, monitor indoor air quality.”The researchers also expect that the power output of the cells can be improved in a variety of ways, such as by improving circuit conductivity, optimizing cell design, and using more resilient organisms.

Unlike conventional photovoltaic cells that operate only when exposed to light, the cyanobacteria can generate an electric current both in the dark and in response to light. The researchers expect that the cell may serve as an environmentally friendly power supply for low-power devices such as biosensors, and can even be scaled up to print a bioenergy wallpaper.
