It has been three years since the last pyrolysis workshop, so this November SIM and the manufacturer Frontier Lab invited to the 4th pyrolysis workshop. After the great response to previous workshops, this year's event was even more popular: 40 users of pyrolysis systems met in Essen to discuss once again this interesting field of analytics.
On September 18, 2018 SIM supported "praxis4u", an initiative for vocational orientation of students in STEM professions. Our employee Niklas Vogel presented the field of the precision mechanic (industrial mechanic, specialization precision engineering) in our company.
On November 8, 2018 SIM hosts a pyrolysis workshop in Essen. This event, in cooperation with Frontier Lab, is already taking place for the fourth time.
SIM has added the 3-MCPD analyzer to its product portfolio, which enables the fully automated determination of 3-monochlorpropanediol (3-MCPD), 2-monochlorpropanediol (2-MCDP), glycidol, and their fatty acid esters in foodstuffs. The background is a current 3-MCPD risk assessment by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) from January 2018, which is focused heavily on this analysis. In February 2018, the maximum levels for 3-monochlorpropanediol (3-MCPD) and glycidyl fatty acid esters were revised in an EU regulation (EU 2018/290).
