BERLIN (Reuters) -German health technology company Siemens Healthineers has raised its full-year sales and profit forecast for the second time this year, as the COVID-19 pandemic continues to drive demand for its rapid antigen tests. Makers of diagnostic tests, including rivals Roche and Becton Dickinson, are benefiting from strong demand for testing as countries try to contain infection waves and rely on testing to start opening up parts of society. Healthineers now expects sales to increase 14% to 17% in the year to September, while adjusted basic earnings per share are forecast at 1.90 euros to 2.05 euros versus an earlier forecast of 1.63 euros to 1.82 euros.
TOTAL (TOT) collaborates with Siemens Energy to reduce emissions related to LNG production. TOTAL's LNG production is likely to increase 10% in 2021 from 2020 levels.
United Airlines said on Tuesday it has partnered with global firms including Nike Inc and Siemens AG in an "Eco-Skies Alliance" to finance use this year of about 3.4 million gallons of low-carbon, sustainable aviation fuel derived from trash. Though tiny compared with the 4.3 billion gallons of jet fuel that United consumed in 2019 prior to the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, the amount triples the roughly 1 million gallons of sustainable fuel it has used each year since 2016. Airlines have used sustainable fuel since 2008 as part of efforts to reduce outright emissions, but so far this represents barely 1% of the fuel used worldwide, industry groups say.
