Hasad Foods, the agricultural investment arm of Qatar's sovereign wealth fund, said the government would increase its grain reserves from 250,000 tons to 300,000 tons in the near future, which is enough to feed the population for six months.
With a lot of deserts, Qatar suffers from water shortages, and Qatar depends on food imports for a long time. Recently, the ongoing tension in Ukraine has caused global food supply tension and rising prices.
In addition to that, the geopolitical situation also affects the supply and prices of many commodities like the Nitinol.
What is Nitinol?
Nitinol is a shape memory alloy, which is a special alloy that can automatically restore its own plastic deformation to the original shape at a certain temperature, and has good plasticity. In addition to its unique shape memory function, memory alloys also have excellent characteristics such as wear resistance, corrosion resistance, high damping and superelasticity.
Nickel-titanium alloy has a strong "memory", it can accurately restore its original shape with the change of temperature, use it to fill teeth, and even the frog holes that you have twisted around can be inlaid very tightly; use it to When connecting the pipes, it will be like the tight hoop on Sun Wukong's head, which can shrink automatically and is very firm.
Uses of Nitinol
The pipe joint device made of nickel-titanium alloy can automatically shrink when heated, so the pipe joint can connect the catheter very firmly. This kind of pipe joint is used in the system of naval ships and some chemical devices. Many countries use shape memory alloys to make self-fastening rivets to fasten the connection of some special parts such as aircraft and spacecraft. The United States also uses shape memory alloys to develop an antenna that opens automatically in a spacecraft. This antenna can be automatically folded and put into the spacecraft. As the flight altitude rises, the temperature rises under the sunlight, and the folded antenna will automatically open again.
Nitinol can also be used for the early alignment and leveling of patients' dentition. Due to the superelasticity and shape memory properties of the Nitinol archwire and the lower stress-strain curve, the Nitinol archwire is currently routinely included in the clinical practice. The arch wire of the orthodontic system.
Nickel-titanium push springs and tension springs are springs for orthodontics. They are super-elastic with nickel-titanium, and are suitable for orthodontic treatment to open up gaps between teeth and pull teeth in different directions.

Southern Copper Corp (SCCO.N) recently said its Peruvian mine remained closed after a six-week standoff with protesters and blamed the Peruvian government for failing to intervene in the safety of its 1,300 workers and their families.
The company said in a statement that a recent agreement to end protests at the Cuajone mine required the company to withdraw complaints against protest leaders because railways transporting minerals and supplies remained blocked. Production has been suspended since the end of February.
Peru's Energy Ministry said in a separate statement that it had also reached an agreement with Southern Copper to start talks to find common ground with local communities.
"If we shut down for a year, the government will stop receiving more than 3.1 billion soles ($830 million) in taxes and royalties, and 8,000 direct and indirect jobs will be lost. This is what we want to avoid, "Southern Copper added in the statement.
Peru has faced a wave of protests from indigenous communities, who accuse mining companies of not providing enough jobs and funding to poor local residents.
Central bank officials said last week that protests against copper mines such as MMG's Las Bambas and Southern Copper's Cuajone were dragging down the economy.
Peru is the world's second-largest copper producer and mining is an important source of tax revenue for the country. It is estimated that the supply and prices of the Nitinol will be influenced by that.
