PINGDINGSHAN, CHINA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/14/14 -- SinoCoking Coal and Coke Chemical Industries, Inc. (NASDAQ: SCOK) ("the Company" or "SinoCoking"), a vertically-integrated coal and coke processor, today said that, subject to shareholder approval and satisfaction of applicable laws, it intends to change its name to Clean Synthetic Technologies Corp. The name reflects the Company's new emphasis on the large-scale production of clean-burning synthetic gas and other clean energy products. Concurrent with the name change, the Company expects to change its stock trading symbol on Nasdaq.
SinoCoking is currently in construction on a green facility for the conversion of carbon dioxide into synthetic gas (syngas), a fuel utilized to produce clean energy and a wide range of fertilizers, solvents and other industrial products. This facility, which is scheduled to begin operations in the fourth quarter, will produce as much as 25,000 cubic meters of syngas per hour, among the highest outputs in China.
"Clean Synthetic Technologies is more than just a new name. It is a new identity," said Chairman and CEO, Mr. Jianhua Lv.
"Going forward, we have two primary objectives. First, we will strive to become one of China's leading producers of clean energy products -- products capable of generating new streams of high-margin revenue for our Company and allowing it to grow and prosper as never before.
"Second, and no less important, we are determined to help our nation alleviate the pressing air pollution and global warming problems we face. As President Xi has stated, the time has come for China to begin replacing coal with a cleaner energy source. The clean-burning syngas we will soon be producing at our new facility has the potential to do exactly that. The result, we believe, will be a healthier environment for our citizens and their children for decades to come."
Mr. Lv said the Company will shortly issue an update on construction progress at the new facility.

This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
