STEUBENVILLE — EMIT Training Consultants has received state certification from the Minority Business Development Division of the Ohio Department of Development in the categories of encouraging diversity, growth and equity; minority business enterprise; and women-owned business enterprise.
The EDGE program was established by Ohio in the early 2000s to help level the playing field by providing resources and opportunity for minority business enterprises, women business enterprises and other socially or financially disadvantaged entrepreneurs.
“These certifications create an outstanding opportunity for minority- and women-owned businesses to receive equal treatment in terms of contracts, loans and grants. This levels the playing field,” said T’Kayla Kelley, chief executive communications director with EMIT Training Consultants.
The benefits of the certifications include having access to more contracts with state agencies, boards, commissions and universities, as well as a host of local government organizations and private-sector companies, as well as inclusion in certified business databases and access to business resources including grants, loans and training programs that are designed for certified or qualified companies, officials explained.
“We are looking forward to working in our local community and the surrounding areas. we want to give back while providing top-level training,” said Kelley. “We also would like to thank the Minority Business Assistance Center in Youngstown for its assistance.”
“It has been a pleasure working with EMIT’s President Eliza Kelley,” said Tamisha Wheeler, a business adviser with the center. “We started the process as strangers and have grown together for the journey. These are businesses that we are looking for — the vision, the dream, the hard work — it all plays into the overall success of the business. We are so excited and proud to see what EMIT does and how it will continue to impact the community.”
EMIT Training Consultants is a minority women-owned small business that was created to challenge the misconceptions associated with the lack of knowledge as it pertains to training in the workforce and private sector. It provides training in seven subjects: Ethics, equity, education, management, inclusion, diversity an technology. It also provides public outreach and engagement services for contracting companies or firms.

THE HAGUE, Netherlands—Arlanxeo is looking to advance its sustainability credentials with the introduction of elastomers, incorporating monomers derived from new biomass feedstocks and/or end-of-life plastics and rubber recyclate.
The synthetic rubber major has already made commercial in-roads in the bio-based polymer arena, with three Keltan ECO branded EPDMs—the ethylene monomer for which is derived from sugar cane.
Arlanxeo is now working with partners on an ISCC mass balance approach to produce a broader range of more sustainable elastomers by the fourth quarter of 2022.
"We are investigating options for all of our polymers, including but not limited to EPDM and NBR," said a statement from Li Birnie, head of corporate communications at Arlanxeo Holding B.V.
"We see ISCC+ mass balance certification as a serious option and are working on potential certification of our production facilities, including our EPDM production site in Geleen, the Netherlands," she added.
Arlanxeo expects to share more information regarding timing, availability and capacities in the first quarter of 2023, the company official concluded.

SANTA ROSA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jul 29, 2022--
Keysight Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: KEYS), a leading technology company that delivers advanced design and validation solutions to help accelerate innovation to connect and secure the world, has enabled the Global Certification Forum (GCF) to activate certification of 5G devices in accordance with 5G new radio (NR) 3GPP release 16 (Rel-16) specifications using Keysight’s protocol and radio frequency (RF) demodulation and radio resource management (RRM) conformance toolsets.
3GPP Rel-16 signals the advent of a second wave of 5G technology roll-out by mobile operators and enterprises targeting improved levels of reliability, security, privacy, capacity and customization. The industry milestone achieved by Keysight was confirmed at the conformance agreement group (CAG) 71 meeting held July 26 – 29. As a result, device vendors can now certify devices for GCF test cases covering high-speed train (HST) scenarios. These test cases ensure 5G devices provide consistent end-user experiences and critical communication reliability with high mobility for passengers on high-speed trains traveling at up to 500 kilometers per hour.
At the CAG meeting, it was also confirmed that Keysight was first to validate 5G new radio (NR) protocol conformance test cases which enable device vendors to verify compliance to 3GPP Rel-16 specifications related to non-public network (NPN) deployments. These test cases support 5G NR standalone (SA) mode, which requires a 5G Core (5GC) to deliver cloud-native applications, low latencies, high data rate speeds and end-to-end service orchestration, as well as enhanced capacity and coverage.
“Keysight is accelerating the market introduction of devices that support advanced 5G consumer-focused use cases, as well as 5G private network deployments,” said Muthu Kumaran, general manager of Keysight’s Device Validation Solutions business. “Since the completion of 3GPP Rel-16 in 2020, Keysight has collaborated with leading modem makers to speed the adoption of the latest standards. This enables a growing device ecosystem to capture early revenue opportunities associated with advanced 5G use cases.”
More than one hundred mobile operators are investing in 5G NR SA underpinning many 5G advanced use cases. The CAG meeting confirmed that Keysight is the first and only test platform to validate RF demodulation and RRM test cases for 5G SA devices in frequency range 2 (FR2) covering RF transceiver (TRX), demodulation and RRM validation. It was also confirmed that Keysight was first to activate certification of 5G devices for inter radio access technology (iRAT) technical enhancements and improvements (TEI16), ensuring 5G SA devices perform smooth handovers between 5G NR and 4G LTE networks.
Keysight continues to enable chipset and device makers to verify conformance to the highest number of GCF validated protocol and RF/RRM test cases using the company’s 5G network emulation solutions. Keysight’s S8704A Protocol Conformance Toolset and S8705A RF/RRM DVT and Conformance Toolset leverage common software and hardware platforms to provide access to a comprehensive range of GCF test cases, accelerating conformance validation.
