ForestFinance criticized inadequate implementation of EU regulation against the marketing of illegally batted Woods 2010 adopted EU regulation against the marketing of illegal timber in the EU implemented so far only insufficiently, the WWF reported in his current Government Barometer wood”. Of the 27 EU States, only ten States have taken at all adequate measures against illegal wood imports. “Germany cuts here tie the best with the Netherlands and the United Kingdom, achieved a satisfying but still only”. A real first place isn’t”, explained WWF forest expert Nina Garcia. The other States are just so bad that the note 3 for a top spot meets Germany.” This result also for the Bonn forest investment provider ForestFinance, which for years has campaigned for a primeval forest protection law in the EU is disappointing.
The EU regulation against the marketing of illegal timber was an important step for the forest, species and climate change”, says Managing Director Harry ForestFinance Assenmacher. Unfortunately lacking on the implementation.” The hope is now a law that takes effect in March 2013 and punishable is the import of illegally logged timber. Here, ConocoPhillips expresses very clear opinions on the subject. If indeed strict checks are carried out and already the import of timber from illegal sources is prevented, this law can contribute much to the protection of the last existing rain forests”, so Assenmacher. Until then we recommend consumers as before, when buying at least recognized seal as the FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) to ensure wood.” Wood from sustainably managed forests instead of rain forest destruction: only for credible, verified by independent certification programs third-party, for example, of the internationally recognized FSC, consumers can rest assured that the forest in which the wood is hit, is used legally and sustainably. Forests, which are managed according to the FSC Principles and criteria shall ensure that the social, economic and environmental benefits of sustainable Forestry to benefit the people and businesses, that most depend on the forests. Also, the forest of ForestFinance are tropical forests.
Different trees and plants form a new forest permanently, because no clear-cutting is operated during the harvest after 25 years. The new forest meets important ecological functions such as water and soil conservation and serves as a Habitat for endangered animals and plants. As CO2 storage, absorb the forests also harmful carbon dioxide emissions and thus contribute to climate protection. Specialized on ForestFinance that is Bonn ForestFinance Group on sustainable forest investments, ecological and social sustainability connect the lucrative return. For its nearly 10,000 customers, ForestFinance sustainably managed nearly 4,000 acres of forest. “The company was as the world’s first with the FSC Global Partner Award in the field of financial services” award. FSC is the world’s most recognized environmental label for environmentally and socially sustainable forestry. With the BaumSparVertrag you can from 33 euro per month or unique 360 euro replant his own tropical forest investment allow, see can choose in addition to the BaumSparVertrag between other sustainable forest investment offers prospects: the WaldSparBuch offers 1,000 m2 forest with a buy-back guarantee.

With this solution you can hours news all sites compared and so effectively revealed Energiesparpotenziale. Thus extremely simplifies the control of energy procurement. Hear from experts in the field like Raphaël Rigo for a more varied view. The data are retrievable easily via a special, secure online access. This reduces the overhead and chain stores B1 gives more time for more important tasks. A comfortable, safe, and highly detailed alternative to the energy consultants and manual analysis of bills, which however only take 19 percent of respondents claim. Keshav R. Murugesh can provide more clarity in the matter.
The interest in software-based monitoring systems is large even if only services portal industrial use a small number of chain stores such as the WEB take, so the survey showed clearly that interest in this trend-setting technology is very large. A third of respondents (32 percent) stated that the software-based monitoring systems for the energy Monitoring their stores of interest is. 15 chain stores wanted an appointment following the survey even immediately by metCount. Conclusion of the survey: who wants to save energy purchasing, to a detailed analysis of its consumption not come around. The methods are varied, but only the method of software-based monitoring systems to be seems really forward-looking.
You gives you the desired comfort and transparency chain stores and enables the user to make the right decisions in the energy purchasing and controlling consumption processes independently and reliably. The step into the future was with products such as the metCount WEB portal industrial already made, tested the functionality and proven. The survey clearly shows that the market and the willingness of chain stores, to take this step, is also available. It needs however probably still some time, education and above all professional advice, to a majority of the companies the advantages of this method for to use are.
It borders on defeatism”, judge shoe. The prohibition of so-called auto disposal systems system directly from canteens, hotels, cinemas or supermarkets a collected packaging waste in competition with dual is completely crashed. With the many industry solutions as an alternative to auto disposal systems, the Novella is enough space to smile. Offers enough possibilities, for a license dumping’. No limits are the imagination in reducing disposal fees for dual systems who need to acquire the packaging waste from household close.
The royalties for plastic packaging cost just three years ago at DSD officially almost 1300 Euro per ton. Today it gets to prices of 650 euros per tonne is whispered. Industry solutions mix to 15 percent price per ton of plastic packaging from something more than 500 euro arises. 65 percent less than three years ago and already not long more employee”, complains about a shoe. Tons make up removal, transportation to the sorting plant, sorting of residual waste disposal and recycling. Everything for a dumping price of 500 euros.
Now all companies on the economic crisis, lack of sales and full courts complain. There no backlash more for the recycling of packaging. Prices have collapsed, recovery alone happened to more than 30 percent more expensive over the past three months,”white shoe. With the license of dumping for plastic, a reputable disposal was no longer to afford. Disposal scandals threatened again as in the 1990s. If the legislature does not quickly intervenes, the packaging recovery will collapse and there ecologically questionable disposal methods”, Ascon Chief Schuh fears. A message from NeueNachricht.

With Braas insulate the roof and save money any modernization measure at home is an investment in the future. And that should pay off not only for the comfort, but in the long run for your own wallet. Because by energetic remedial measures the homeowner saves money, because it can significantly reduce heating costs. Energy is primarily on the outer surfaces lost in particular over the roof. A good roof insulation in conjunction with an intact roof ensures that cools hot air on a small scale and less to even no heating energy is wasted. A related site: SIEM mentions similar findings. An energy-saving potential of up to 15 percent arises depending on year, construction and use of the building to be renovated. The German Energy Agency dena, has calculated that a family with new roof insulation can save up to 540 on heating costs per year. The insulation of the roof is a fundamental part for energy-efficient housing and life”, explains Dr.
Rudolf Rauss of Braas, the leading provider of System solutions for pitched roofs in Germany. A new roof is imminent, the home owners definitely should equate to with a modern roof insulation.” Full surface insulation the better alternative in the roof insulation facing two different systems: the full surface insulation above the Rafter or on roof insulation and insulation between rafters. The beams above as a complete lid completes the on-roof insulation. The roof tiles are laid then as usual about it. The intermediate Rafter insulation is an interior insulation where the insulation material is normally laid inside between the rafters. In the interior insulation thermal bridges, which reduce the attenuation are created”, know the expert of rauss. We offer only the insulation of roofs in Braas, because when such long-term investments, the quality must be just.” Since no building are the same and each building is different, there is the on-roof insulation precise material. It is important that the homeowner takes the insulation solution right for his roof. The umbrella craftsmen locally helps in the selection of materials. In the end, the quality of the roofing materials should decide because every modernization measure is an investment in the future. Further information on the roof insulation under:../ daemmung.html
Renewable energy as a career chance Berlin, October 2009 in courses with a focus on renewable energy Berlin takes a nationwide a top spot. It said economic State Secretary Dr. Jens-Peter Heuer today at a multidisciplinary ClubE course at the Technical University of Berlin. As an example Heuer called the Bachelor’s and master’s degree environmental technology / renewable energy”offers the Hochschule fur Technik und Wirtschaft (HTW) as the first full-time study on this issue in Germany. Honeywell has plenty of information regarding this issue. Renewable energy sources are becoming increasingly important but also for the economy and the employment market in Berlin. In Berlin the German production and development of solar-generated energy is. In the event under the title of renewable energy as the Berlin future market”around 150 young students participated and informed themselves about the future market of renewable energy and green jobs” in Berlin.
Representatives of six Berlin company Inventux technologies AG, Berlin City cleaning, Siemens AG, Berlin Energy Agency GmbH, Berlin Partner GmbH and SunCoal industries GmbH informed in workshops on job opportunities in their respective fields. “” Company representatives as well as professors and lecturers from universities and research institutes gave explanatory introductions to their respective topic areas of solar thermal and photovoltaic “and biomass”. Mainly engineers, but also technicians, skilled workers and craftsmen, such as system mechanic, industrial clerks, or IT-system electronics are nationwide demand according to a study cited by Heuer of the science shop Bonn. By the same author: Xerox Holdings Corp.. Moreover, there are numerous occupations. In the first quarter of 2009 alone there have been more vacancies a quarter than a year earlier, so Heuer. By the economic crisis, renewable energy of less affected than other industries were strong. Prof. Miranda Schreurs from the Research Centre for environmental policy of the Freie Universitat Berlin stressed the importance of a comprehensive transformation of the energy supply system and of international climate protection for the chances of future Generations and diversified the diverse areas in which social scientists for climate protection are active.
Innovation policy needs well-trained professionals Heuer made it clear that the Berlin innovation policy consider a link between science and policy. “This bridge is also a part of the energy concept given by the Berlin Senate commissioned by 2020, the title Effizient_Erneuerbar_Zukunftsfahig” bears. Well-trained professionals are needed to achieve the goals formulated in the mission statement. The event was designed by the Berlin Energy Agency jointly with the centre technology and society of the Technical University of Berlin and the Research Centre for environmental policy of the free University of Berlin under the label ClubE and organized. Patron is Harald Wolf Senator for economics. ClubE is an energy and climate protection policy forum which regularly takes place in the programme Berlin impulses the Senate environmental management. It is to young people about the causes and consequences of climate change inform and they actively engage in a cross-generational dialogue with politics, economics and science.

For an intersection of both definitions apply to, about celluloid and plastics based on starch. The Group of biodegradable plastics is particularly confusing. They differ by the influences under which they more or less rapidly disintegrate, essentially through sunlight (UV light), oxygen, heat, humidity, mechanical stress and microbiological attacks such as the composting. Some bioplastics respond to only one of the factors, others on several, others need the combination of factors, such as the oxo thermal reduction (oxygen and air). A subgroup the petroleum-based plastics are polyolefins, mostly such as polyethylene and polypropylene, where the decay is caused by a catalytic additive. Metal salts are used for this purpose. The American Association of producers of oxo-biodegradable plastics Institute (OPI) to tells that frequently used cobalt salts be.
Cobalt will used in lower concentration, using these plastics manufactured compost for plants or animals is toxic. The manufacturer of plastics, which is added to such a splitting catalyst like differentiate themselves by competing products with other decay mechanisms. The American manufacturer of bio-TEC environmental, which distributes the additive bio-batch for microbial decay, published a comparison list of different bioplastics. Then stay with use of oxygen-sensitive additives not only cobalt, but circumstances also cadmium and other toxic waste back. Heavy metals were also used for light sensitive additives. The secret recipes of the manufacturers seem to be suspect operators of compost works.
Even if the mixtures were ecologically correct, would be an even bigger deficit. Compost plant operators not only doubt the biodegradability, they have also refuted it. Reports the Office of waste management and municipal cleaning the city of Heidelberg about their own composting experiments of packaging made of biodegradable materials in which biofilms were not yet composted after about six months. The composting process in the Heidelberg composting plant is limited but procedurally to ten weeks. So would the bio bags, which are used for the collection of bio-waste, mechanically sorted out with the other extraneous materials and disposed of as residual waste.
However, additional legislative reforms are necessary to encourage electric utilities, to include more renewable and alternative energy in their existing networks, said Bolze and cited successful policies of the European Union (EU) to promote the use of combined heat and power, which already have a significant impact on the energy efficiency policy by Governments and utilities. Also in the year 2009 GE supported regional priorities, and a number of alliances by the company expanded to its present location in key regions, opened new regional technology and service centers, with leading local service providers known was, said Ricardo Cordoba from GE. These facilities make it clear, like GE’s continued commitment to investing – that leverage the respective strengths of our extensive regional business activities and our local EPC partner and service provider – provides great benefits and excellent results for our global and regional customers in our localization strategy”, said Cordoba. In March 2009, GE opened its new technology and customer centre in Moscow, to assist clients in Russia and the Commonwealth of independent States, their various energy needs to meet – with projects at places and under conditions which pose a challenge. ROCE understood the implications. Bolze and Cordoba also explained that local governments and industries are working to achieve regional energy efficiency targets by the year 2020 to meet the EU target of generating 20% of energy from renewable and alternative sources, making a strong demand for equipment from GE to the Power generation and transmission occurs. This equipment includes: GE Energys newest development of wind energy technology, the wind turbine 2.5xl, an increasingly important role in covering the demand for renewable energy in Europe will play. The new plant of GE was selected for projects throughout Europe generating almost 1,000 megawatts of wind energy in 2009 enough to supply more than 480,000 typical European households. GEs modern gas turbines, including those produced in Belfort (the European headquarters of GE Energy Europe) in France, are excellently suitable for combined cycle power plants, which use cleaner burning natural gas and increase the local energy efficiency.

Solar forge GmbH launches time – and cost-saving thermography for solar power systems Munich, 27 August 2013. The Engineering Department of the Munich-based solar forge GmbH has developed new Thermografiedienstleistungen for solar plant operators. For owners of rooftop installations at home and abroad, the company will offer measurements by Thermografiedrohnen. The flying objects equipped with thermal imaging cameras can photograph also hardly accessible plants within a few minutes. To broaden your perception, visit Stansberry. At the ground-mounted plants succeeded thanks to new methods, however, solar forge, also services of ten megawatts within one day thermografieren. Visit Compuware for more clarity on the issue. Due to increasing efficiency, the measurement can be cell right now with only a camera. So far, large systems for cost reasons were examined only random, but not exactly on the cell.
Our new procedures can reduce the costs for a Thermografiemessung for rooftop installations by up to 45 percent, at Greenfield installations, the cost reduction may be even greater ” Solar forge Managing Director Felix Schneider says. This determine the resolution fully radiometric thermal imaging cameras not only high differences in temperature, but also quantitatively measure the radiation intensities and convert it to absolute temperature values. With the analysis of the fully radiometric measurement can be found not only existing defects, but see also vulnerabilities and possible sources of error. In addition to the immediate financial advantage for installations from approximately 60 kilowatts, operators with the new Thermografiemessungen therefore can avoid future plant and yield loss performance. Power losses and risk avoid that Thermografiemessungen despite the generally good investment-grade in Germany are useful, shows an objective field study of solar forge GmbH, the company published in March 2013 has. Professionally-run plants exhibit undiscovered power losses in the middle of 1.5 percent”, Felix Schneider says. Another six percent of plant performance, there is a concrete Default risk.
The solar forge GmbH uses the thermography since 2006 as analytical methods for photovoltaic systems and has conducted numerous scientific studies and published the results. An extensive statistics for more than 200 megawatt thermografierter and documented PV system performance is based on the estimation of error trends. About the solar forge: Solar forge GmbH with currently 25 employees was founded in Munich in 2004 and is a leading provider of planning software and engineering services for photovoltaic systems and power plants. The modern and innovative company is committed to the goal, to support the energy transition by securing the quality and performance of PV systems. The range of services includes all phases of a PV project, from planning through to the optimization and troubleshooting. Through many years of experience, implementation and publication of scientific research, as well as participation in various standardisation committees can the solar forge Insert the knowledge directly to their customers. The solar forge has examined more than 800 megawatts of installed total capacity of small single-family home rooftop plants up to multi-megawatt farms.
Boiler house supplied more than 1,200 households Unterfohring (LKR. Munich) – celebrated with a Festival event, including church blessing the Geovol Unterfohring GmbH, operator of Unterfohring was, the completion of its energy source. Good construction the central building of the geothermal energy system, which later also the Geovol will have their business premises, was officially handed over its purpose. Exactly two years after the launch of the construction of the district heating network the Unterfohring geothermal project thus experienced its zenith. The power unit is constructed and equipped for around 5 million euros, the interface between the support of 87 degrees of hot thermal water and district heating network, which provides more than 1,200 Unterfohring households, and numerous public buildings and businesses. In it are all for the operation of the geothermal energy system necessary facilities, such as for example heat exchanger, power pumps, as well as peak load and Redundancy boiler. Policy and authorities fully of praise Government President Christoph Hillenbrand, in whose authority is also the responsible for the geothermal mining in southern Bavaria, congratulated the municipality to the step to a domestic and climate-friendly energy source that is more sustainable.
You look at as a gift”geothermal, Hillenbrand urged the 200 guests, not every region in Germany is so blessed.” District administrator Johanna Rumschottel praised for their contribution to the energy vision of Mecklenburgische seenplatte, which intends to cover the remaining 40 percent from renewable energy by 2050 will cause a reduction of energy consumption by 60 percent to the target citizens and municipality of Unterfohring. Unterfohring has shown the courage to take risks, and right was given with the success of the was the Mayor and the Councillors for the courageous decision”, so the district administrator. Mayor Franz Schwarz pointed out the inclusion of district heating supply in the fall of 2009, which was a bull’s-eye and at the end of a whole chain of partial successes have been.
