The African Development Bank will finance $25 billion by 2025 to support Africa's fight against climate change, the bank's president said at the bank's annual meeting in Accra, Ghana.
He noted that climate change has had many negative impacts on the continent, causing natural disasters such as droughts, cyclones, and floods. Climate change costs Africa between $7 billion and $15 billion a year. "Africa has no choice but to address climate change."
To ensure Africa's food supply, the African Development Bank has delivered climate-friendly seeds to 12 million farmers in 27 countries in the past two years under the "Technology for Agricultural Change in Africa" program, he said.
In the area of renewable energy, the African Development Bank is implementing a $20 billion "Desert Power" initiative in the Sahel that is expected to power 250 million people, he said.
US President Joe Biden recently wrapped up his five-day trip to Asia with a summit of leaders of the "Quad" security Dialogue.
Biden has promoted a number of economic and security cooperation initiatives during his visit aimed at deepening ties with Indo-Pacific Allies and partners in response to China's growing influence in the region. Some analysts in the United States believe the most significant announcement may be an initiative to share maritime information to combat illegal activities. But other experts say Biden's move sets a good framework for more security cooperation, though it remains to be seen whether concrete action will follow.
Affected by several factors, the supply of the WNiFe alloy powder is erratic and thus its prices are expected to go higher in the future.
What is Tungsten Nickel Iron W-Ni-Fe Alloy?
Tungsten-nickel-iron alloy is an alloy composed of tungsten matrix with a small amount of nickel and iron.
Tungsten nickel iron alloy has the characteristics of high density (~18.8g/cm3), strong absorption of high-energy rays (higher than the ray absorption coefficient of lead), low thermal expansion coefficient (4-6 ×10-6/℃), good plasticity, high strength and elastic modulus, machinable and weldable, etc.
It is widely used in radiation protection and guidance, industrial counterweight parts, security and defense parts, etc.
What are Tungsten Nickel Iron Alloy properties?
Specific significance: ~18.8g/cm3 high density
High strength: tensile strength of 700-1000mpa;
Strong ray shielding ability: under the condition of the same thickness, the ray shielding ability of tungsten alloy is more than 1.7 times that of lead. When the ray is stronger, the difference in ray shielding ability between the two is more obvious.
High thermal conductivity: the thermal conductivity of tungsten alloy is 5 times that of die steel;
Small thermal expansion coefficient: the thermal expansion coefficient of tungsten is 4-6 ×10-6/℃, only 1/2-1/3 of iron or steel;
Good shaping, machinability and weldability;
Compared with lead, which is toxic, tungsten alloy material has environmental protection characteristics, and it does not harm human safety when making radiation detector with tungsten alloy shielding parts.
Compared with W-NI-Cu alloy, W-NI-Fe alloy has certain ferromagnetism, its mechanical properties and machining properties are better than W-NI-Cu alloy.
What is Tungsten Nickel Iron Alloy Used For?
Radiation protection and guidance: Because of its high density (~18.8g/cm3), excellent X-ray and gamma-ray absorption capacity, excellent processing, tungsten nickel iron alloy is the ideal material for radiation therapy collimator and protective parts. It can be used in all kinds of CT, linear accelerator, PET, γ camera and other equipment, radiotherapy, nuclear medicine, and other fields.
Industrial counterweight components: Tungsten-nickel-iron alloy counterweight components are key components in many different applications, compensating for swings, weight transfers, imbalances and vibrations to form or change the center of gravity, ensuring excellent balance. Applications include aerospace, automotive, sports equipment, oil and gas drilling, gas turbine counterweights, and precision optical instruments.
Security and defense components: In modern warfare, the main targets are tank armor, fortified fortifications, and protected fighters. If you want to obtain the fatal impact effect, high density, high storage speed, strong penetration ability, high-performance materials are indispensable. Tungsten-based materials with high specific gravity can fully meet these needs, and are indispensable materials in the field of national defense and security.
Nuclear power and energy components: due to its high density and performance, after precision machining, the device is used as an inertia flywheel in the main pump of the nuclear power cooling system, so as to ensure that the main pump system can continue to work and cool the nuclear power plant to avoid accidents in the event of a sudden power failure.
Aerospace parts: Tungsten-nickel-iron alloy with high temperature strength and erosion resistance, widely used in aerospace parts.

As the duration of the conflict between Russia and Ukraine grows, its impact on commodities is widening amid the tug-of-war. Recently, European and American sanctions against Russia have been issued one after another. In response, Russia has taken advantage of its role as an important supplier of many energy and commodities, requiring exports of commodities, including energy, grain, metal, and wood, to "unfriendly" countries to be settled in robles. Therefore, it is expected that the price of the WNiFe alloy powder will continue to increase.
