Bamboo, When I put the code (a href=) in the header for the pulp link and save, it doesn't appear in the header. When I then go back to edit again the code is no longer there. Any further pointers? G.

Brill, looks good. Thanks. Could you also add a link to the wood pulp prices? Https://fred.stlouisfed.org/series/WPU0911 As you know these almost halved from the peak, and should have a benefit to the input costs of the traditional business. ======================================= For info, the gap [18/1/2021] on the mid price chart, doesn't show on the last market price based chart. The current chart pattern is an inverse head and shoulders. A bull flag has also formed. The target for the flag is currently approx 1740.

garth, click on the chart and select 'copy image address' Then type [less than sign] "img src= [right click cursor and paste image address] " [greater than sign] Try it a few times, you can always edit, but make sure you save the contents of the header somewhere first! On the threads I have set up I copy and save the header contents to an old post.

October 2020 "This project lays the foundations for our next generation coating product, with a significant cost reduction over current coatings. We already have the manufacturing capacity to produce coatings for 2GW of electrolyser capacity per year, but with product and production innovation we can increase that significantly." PV3 Technologies has secured funding from Aerospace Cornwall to help support new research and development projects in green hydrogen. Using the funding, PV3 will develop next generation coatings for PEM water electrolysers, a key component used in the green technology. The coatings mean that PV3 is able to reduce the cost of hydrogen production by increasing both energy efficiency and lifetime of the electrolyser; which enable water to be split into oxygen and green hydrogen – without the production of carbon dioxide. This funding builds on previous Aerospace Cornwall support, with which PV3 developed coatings for advanced fuels used in unmanned aerial vehicles. PV3 chief executive Dr David Hodgson said: "The EU’s hydrogen strategy lays out the potential for nearly 50 GW of green hydrogen capacity by 2030, and we need to support our customers by matching their demand and innovating to further reduce the overall cost of the technology. "This project lays the foundations for our next generation coating product, with a significant cost reduction over current coatings. We already have the manufacturing capacity to produce coatings for 2GW of electrolyser capacity per year, but with product and production innovation we can increase that significantly." Gail Eastaugh, programme director at Aerospace Cornwall, added: "There is a huge opportunity in green hydrogen. The UK is already in the race with a big project happening in the Humber but it’s amazing for Cornwall to be part of this with local funding for a local company like PV3. "PV3 is just one of many businesses we are working with at the moment, in and around Cornwall. We’re urging technology companies to come forward and have a chat with our team." hxxps://www.insidermedia.com/news/south-west/pv3-technologies-secures-funding-for-new-green-hydrogen-projects

Well, well, well. Up 20% today. Hadn't seen that coming. It places us right at the top of the descending channel we have been in for some time. Unless things go totally pear shaped Stateside then I expect we might break out tomorrow.G.

This from November 2018. PV3 incubating AMALYST - graphene and fuel cells. I wonder what the current relationship is? Scale-up supports a start-up Posted on November 4, 2018 PV3 Technologies, a leading supplier of electrochemical materials based in Cornwall and in scale-up phase, is ‘doing its bit’ by incubating graphene company, Amalyst. One of the key challenges an early-stage company faces, is how to access the infrastructure needed to develop their intellectual property into a market-ready product. Incubators exist for certain sectors, but if a company needs more than a bean bag and a laptop, then it can be challenging. Amalyst is a member of the EU’s Graphene Flagship, a €1bn programme to ensure the EU can exploit the potential of the ‘wonder material’ first identified by Nobel Prize winners at the University of Manchester. Collaborating with partners in the UK, France and Italy, Amalyst is working to develop advanced catalysts for the fuel cell industry based on graphene and other 2D materials. Dr David Hodgson, CEO of PV3 Technologies commented: “The board of Amalyst were delighted with the prospect of working out of PV3’s laboratories. The ability to tap into PV3’s unrivalled expertise in the sector, to provide access to a unique suite of equipment and to supervise and mentor Amalyst staff were crucial elements of the decision. “ “Following-on from the launch of the Davy Initiative, an industry-led drive to promote the Cornish capability in electrochemistry and related materials, this is a further signal that Cornwall has a lot to offer to the world of electrochemistry. This arrangement is bringing additional employment opportunities to Cornwall in the world of 2D materials – does it get more exciting?” “The arrangement is not without its challenges,” said PV3 Technologies’ COO Dr Nick van Dijk. “Our two companies are working in similar fields, so we’ve had to agree a very defined scope of activities, but the similarity also means we can leverage the work of both companies and we have arrangements for cross-licensing of IP in place, should we need them” “I’m pleased we’ve been able to make this work,” said Hodgson. “Having done this once, PV3 would be eager to see if we could do it again and would welcome discussions with universities, or other researchers looking to spin-out their electrochemical ideas.”

New Website, TFP Hydrogen hxxps://www.tfphydrogen.com/ Guess those Hydrogen Economy guys may be here sooner than expected... PV3's website now redirects to TFP Hydrogen. So if you want to read about PVP, established in 2011 then you need to view via "cached" on a search engine such as Google. Vanadium Redox Battery Electrolyte Flow battery developers have operated PV3’s electrolyte for vanadium batteries for many thousands of cycles in cells, stacks and systems. Our high purity electrolyte is now available in commercial quantities. Electrocatalyst Powders By developing our own high-performing range of catalyst powders for use in the production of membrane electrode assemblies (MEAs), gas diffusion electrodes (GDEs) and catalyst coated membranes (CCMs), we’ve been able to successfully deliver a product that meets the market’s demand. Our customers use these catalysts in fuel cells, batteries, water treatment technologies, water electrolysers and many more product areas. Coated Electrodes Our coated electrodes are industry-leading, cost-effective and facilitate the development of our customers’ technologies. We’re a facilitator to the advancement of electrochemical, low-carbon technologies. Based on a range of nanostructured multi-layers of precious metals or mixed metal oxides (MMO), PV3 Technologies’ catalytic coatings contain active components comprising of platinum (Pt), iridium (Ir) and ruthenium (Ru). PV3 Technologies’ nanostructured systems maximise catalytic phases and active surface area, offering significantly increased performance. We can add specific doping agents to our catalysts, which increases their overall performance further. We’re delighted when we work with customers to optimise formulations for their specific application. The coating technology we use on our nanostructured systems has been specifically engineered to deliver cost-effective, high-performing and reproducible products that can be utilised across a variety of projects and end markets. Keeping our product cost-effective is an element of production that has been key to PV3’s core aims and values since our launch. Our coated electrode technology is not shape or size limited, and has been applied to titanium, nickel and Magnéli phase titanium oxide substrates in the form of sheets, meshes, foils, powders, foams, sinters and more. About us – PV3 Technologies We are electrochemists, developing and manufacturing materials for electrochemical technologists. Our team has many years of experience in electrochemical technology development, so we understand what our customers are trying to achieve. Our goal is to provide products with high performance and high durability, at a sensible price PV3 Technologies was founded in 2011, to exploit decades of experience in electrochemical and nano-materials. We operate a pragmatic business model, aiming to support and grow with strategic customers. As a result of the first phase of growth, we moved to larger premises in 2015 and have continued to invest since then. More recent investments have been made in: X-ray analytical equipment Glove box facilities for air and moisture-sensitive materials New production equipment for increased throughput, high reproducibility and productivity. Unique QC equipment developed jointly with customers A wide range of electrochemical hardware, allowing us to perform cyclic voltammetry, impedance spectroscopy, linear polarisation and current efficiency measurements.

VPRT, Thank you for the feedback and for your comments. If one looks at the 5 year chart we are at the top of a descending trend. The gravity of that trend and the likely outcome for the year may well leave me regretting my decision! I do think it entirely possible that we will end up in a bear market and under those circumstances I would not rule out £6 here. Alternatively, we may continue for some time with a bull run and, with a wider interest mounting in green energy, the valuation here might just get silly to the upside. Whichever way those two play out I expect these to be higher in five years. If they tank along the way the nursed loss will leave me fed up, but I would expect to use it to accumulate more at lower levels. I have had a good old run this year and had some profits to park somewhere. I had been looking for some time for the catalyst to be back here. We'll see. We have had a year now of historic low pulp prices and energy costs have been lower too. It will be interesting to see how that reflects in overall costs. G.

Garth: Many thanks for your comments. Good to see that you are back in and that you have followed the company for a long time. After some quick research this morning (including re-reading Beddard's ii-review) I have taken a tiny toehold stake today to ensure that I follow it properly. Despite a large pension deficit, paper troubles and a hard covid-hit, there seems to be very significant upside in two divisions. This is very difficult to value on current numbers, but longer term seems to be a promising bet. I like the family ownership and the heavy spending on R&D and capacity expansion in TFP, and that the problematic business is being restructured (a little, at least) with all employees involved in consultations. But as a newbie I have a lot to learn here, and I might bail within months if I lose faith. Obviously, the valuation multiples are quite high whilst short term results are tanking. So I find it impossible to predict share price in the short term, and suspect a rollercoaster is ahead. (Also some risk of a fundraise, perhaps?) I see the acquisition as probably very small (book value £0.7m according to CH) but an interesting statement of intent to grow in what is unquestionably a rapidly expanding market with growth for a decade or more, and like the complementarity. I was delighted to see a very quiet board here! Prefer to avoid the H-hype for now.

Interesting Hydrogen economy move this morning for CRPR. I have been out for a while and moved some funds back in for the long term. Management spent two decades demonstrating that they could build a cutting edge business out of TFP via Fuel Cells and then aviation - that gives confidence re this new bolt on. And I prefer bread and butter plus jam to jam on its own. I am concerned short term though about aviation impact on TFP and on papers with further lockdown. So there is some powder left to follow a possible poor trading statement or it all going wrong this week in the US. It was a little too easy to pick some up first thing so I suspect we may have a seller. Might get interesting if the Green Energy/Hydrogen Economy crowd ever catch on. Any other views? G.

Trading update out. On the positive side, the underlying business performance before COVID seems good. Pre tax profit above £6m and "well ahead" of market expectations. On the negative side, they assume the next 9 months to be heavily impacted by COVID and somewhat loss making before recovering. TFP some impact from aero but fuel cells and wind energy resilient. Paper most impacted. Colourform impacted but to still continue growing. Question for the markets and reaction today is whether to look through this. It is on most other stocks (many of which will be similarly impacted over reasonable timescales) and the market has always been fond of Cropper, so not sure that necessarily changes. If we assume normalised earnings here are 50p and put on 15-20x earnings (has traded well over this range on average over the last few years), gives fair value range of 750 - 1000p. Suspect we stay in that today but maybe ease back 5%.

TUNG citing increased business as companies move away from paper invoicing. Shouldn't impact CRPR though. Watching to add some more for ltbh. Don't think it's that time yet though.Might well be wrong. It's a great little company. Think we still have a some reckoning to do on global debt. Maybe the Fed will hold it off this time. But a reckoning is coming. Aka Minsky.G.
