Swati Sood, Chhaya Sharma
Journal of Environmental Protection (JEP) , 2019, DOI: 10.4236/jep.2019.103021
Abstract: In the present study, the varieties of papers and paperboards (PPBs) used in India for food packaging were qualitatively and quantitatively analyzed for the heavy metal contamination with the help of ICP-OES (Inductively Coupled Plasma-Optical Emission Spectrometry). Total 10 different types of food packaging PPBs were procured from local market and analyzed for 14 heavy metals (Al, As, B, Ba, Co, Cr, Cu, Fe, Mn, Ni, Pb, Te, Ti and V). Quantities of heavy metals in the samples were compared with permitted values published by the European Council. Heavy metals like Al, As, Ba, Cr, Co, Ni, Pb and V were observed in more than the permitted concentration in some of the samples. Heavy metals toxicity in food packaging material is a serious concern as the edible items get exposed to these metals and also generate volatile odorous compounds which considerably impact the quality of food and affect consumer's health.
Vigilancia como herramienta de innovación y desarrollo tecnológico: Caso de aplicación: Sector de empaques plásticos flexibles
Vargas,Freddy; Castellanos,Oscar;
Ingeniería e Investigación , 2005,
Abstract: the demand for production process efficiency and quality has made it necessary to resort to new tools for development and technological innovation. surveillance of the environment has thus bee identified as being a priority, paying special attention to technology which (by its changing nature) is a key factor in competitiveness. surveillance is a routine activity in developed countries? organisations; however, few suitable studies have been carried out in colombia and few instruments produced for applying it to existing sectors of the economy. the present article attempts to define a methodology for technological awareness (based on transforming the information contained in databases) by means of constructing technological maps contributing useful knowledge to production processes. this methodology has been applied to the flexible plastic packaging sector. the main trends in this industry?s technological development were identified allowing strategies to be proposed for incorporating these advances and tendencies in national companies and research groups involved in flexible plastic packaging technological development and innovation. technological mapping?s possibilities as an important instrument for producing technological development in a given sector are then analysed as are their possibilities for being used in other production processes.
Caracteriza??o de Polímeros e Determina??o de Constituintes Inorganicos em Embalagens Plásticas Metalizadas

Polímeros , 2002, DOI: 10.1590/S0104-14282002000300014
Abstract: this paper presents analytical results of metallized plastic materials obtained by neutron activation analysis (naa) and the results of identification of polymers by infrared spectroscopy (ir) and differential scanning calorimetry (dsc). metallized plastic samples were collected from packages of foodstuffs and cosmetics. results of ir and dsc tests indicated that polyethylene, polypropylene, poly(ethylene terephthalate) and polystyrene are polymers used in metallized plastics. the naa consisted of irradiating samples and standards with thermal neutron flux of the iea-r1 nuclear reactor, followed by induced gamma ray activities measurements using a hyperpure germanium detector coupled to a gamma ray spectrometer. toxic elements such as arsenic, cadmium, chromium, nickel, and antimony as well as non-toxic elements as barium, calcium, cobalt, iron, scandium, selenium and zinc were determined and their concentrations presented a large variability between the samples. the analyses of polymer and toxic elements are of great interest to develop adequate and safe processes for recycling or incineration of metallized plastic packages without causing damage to the environment.

Abstract: El empleo de paquetes de software para apoyar diferentes etapas de la investigación es cada vez más común entre los académicos de investigación cualitativa. La revisión del libro de Di GREGORIO y DAVISDSON, uno de los más recientes publicados en este tópico, pone particular atención a su primera parte. Allí, las autoras proponen y discuten algunos aspectos innovadores sobre el análisis de datos cualitativos asistido por computadora, tales como la emergencia del proyecto E como un "género" que influye en la totalidad del dise o de la investigación cualitativa. La revisión presenta de modo resumido la segunda y tercera partes del libro, más pragmáticamente orientadas al uso de los paquetes de software en la investigación cualitativa. Finalmente, la revisión finaliza con algunas observaciones críticas sobre el libro, el cual es una herramienta esencial de aprendizaje y reflexión para académicos y estudiantes de la investigación cualitativa de diferentes campos de investigación e indagación. URN: urn:nbn:de:0114-fqs1002223 Die Nutzung von Software zur Unterstützung unterschiedlicher Phasen des Arbeitsprozesses ist zunehmend Teil des Alltags qualitativer Forscher/innen. Dieser Beitrag besch ftigt sich mit einem der aktuellsten Bücher zu diesem Thema. Im ersten Teil des Buches, dem hier besondere Aufmerksamkeit geschenkt wird, diskutieren DI GREGORIO und DAVIDSON einige innovative Aspekte computer-gestützter qualitativer Datenanalyse wie z.B. die Entstehung von "E-Projekten" als einem eigenen Genre, das das komplette Design qualitativer Projekte tangiert. Der zweite und dritte Teil des Buches, die sich eher pragmatisch mit der aktuellen Verwendung von Software im qualitativen Forschungsprozess befassen, werden nur kurz skizziert. Ich ende mit einigen kritischen Anmerkungen zum Buch, das aus meiner Perspektive ein wichtiges Hilfsmittel für die Lehre und Reflexion qualitativer Forschung ist.

Yang Hu, Xinrong Yang
Journal of Service Science and Management (JSSM) , 2010, DOI: 10.4236/jssm.2010.31016
Abstract: The zero-time enterprise’s mission is response to the market and customer needs in “zero time” in order to gain more customers and competitive advantages. To realize zero-time response to market and customers, it should inspire the employees’ work enthusiasm and creativity, so that they can do their work conscientiously to ensure quick and smooth going. This paper discussed how to establish an effective instant incentive mechanism for zero-time enterprise, which is a problem of rich practical significance. Firstly, based on the briefly explanation of zero-time enterprise, it analyzed the characteristics and principles of zero-time enterprise; and then elaborated the important roles of instant incentive. Finally, it proposed the basic contents of instant incentive and the “Trine” realization mechanism.

Modern Economy (ME) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/me.2016.73028
Abstract: Equities incentive is more and more frequently used for motivating management among Chinese listed companies, but whether it will degrade informativeness of stock price, thus reduce the efficiency of capital allocation in security market remains to be verified. This article used the data of A-share listed companies in China from 2010-2014, deployed an empirical research to study the relationship between equities incentive and informativeness of stock price, considering earnings management as an intermediary variable. According to the analysis results, we found that higher level of equities incentive tended to degrade the level of informativeness of stock price, and the earnings management was not an effective intermediary variable, which meant the earnings management resulted from equities incentive was less likely to affect informativeness of stock price.
