With over 501 billion cups consumed every year, coffee is one of the world's most popular beverages. Worldwide, 25 million small producers rely on coffee for a living. For instance, in Brazil alone, where almost a third of all the world's coffee is produced, over 5 million people are employed in the cultivation and harvesting of over 3 billion coffee plants; it is a much more labour-intensive culture than alternative cultures of the same regions as sugar cane or cattle , as it is not subject to automation and requires constant attention. Coffee is also bought and sold as a commodity on the New York Board of Trade . ...

Innovative Methods for the Conversion of Biomass to Short Chain ...
DESCRIPTION: A variety of approaches are currently under investigation for the conversion of biomass to fuels. The two most commonly explored methods are based on hydrolysis/fermentation, and pyrolysis. In the first method, acid hydrolysis followed by fermentation can directly produce alcohols such as ethanol and butanol. However, the conversion of cellulose to sugars suitable for fermentation is complex and expensive, and the product alcohols are unsuitable for applications as jet fuels due to their low net heats of combustion and high volatilities. The second method employs pyrolysis of biomass which typically ... market research, surveys and trends

Strange Case of Disappearing 2000 Yen Bill
No, you won’t find any in here: Bills to the value of 10,000, above, and 1,000 are ubiquitous, but the 2,000 yen note is a rare commodity. The Bank of Japan’s move to leave interest rates untouched yet again  Tuesday gave determined yen-watchers precious few clues on future exchange rates. But it also allowed more detached observers time to ponder some of the broader currency issues of the day. For example, when was the last time you saw a 2,000 yen bill? Some ten years after the Bank of Japan launched the yen’s newest banknote in 2000 to commemorate the G8 summit in Kyushu and Okinawa, they’re a rare sight these ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

The Cold Chain
While Globalization has made the relative distance between regions of the world much smaller, the physical separation of these same regions is still a very important reality. The greater the physical separation, the more likely freight can be damaged in one of the complex transport operations involved. It takes time and coordination to efficiently move a shipment and every delay can have negative consequences, particularly if this cargo is perishable. To ensure that cargo does not become damaged or compromised throughout this process, businesses in the pharmaceutical, medical and food ...
Google Answers: GM Worldwide Commodity Chain (production and sales)
Hello Everyone! I am working on a project that requires me to construct a map of where General Motors presently sources its products from and where GM markets (sells) its products. Basically I am making a simplified map of GM's worldwide commodity chains. I have been able to find some specific information on GM's imports and exports to/from certain countries (i.e. Mexico and the USA), but I have been struggling to get statistics and numbers for a summary of the entire world. So here are my questions and the prices I'm willing to pay: 1. Worldwide, where does GM produce products and what ...

About a third of Honda plant's workforce are interns, who as vocational students typically receive lower wages and fewer benefits than regular employees. Many factories in southern China employ interns, who are required by their schools to complete a stint at manufacturing sites. But there is more at stake for Honda than the issue of workers' wages. Honda cannot afford to have disruption in its operations for long. It's up against GM and Volkswagen, the two largest manufacturers in China. That makes it more likely that Honda's employees have the leverage they need to get higher wages. And, if Honda succumbs, ...
