Instead of an end of pipe’ solution as until now, fog nozzles have been used directly in the process. With good success. I didn’t like 1994. Then, new companies have formed, which brought similar solutions on the market, but also new problems. There was competition. No one with the fact that the Geruchsneutralisatoren can lead to additional risks, because the fog spread in the process with the mixed with product of the employees was inhaled dealt at this time. It came above all means the usage that either oxidizing or komplexierend worked on the smell particles to be treated.

Also substances which only neutralising worked on the perception of the scent organ, were used. Many times these products only on the oral or Percutaneous absorption and toxicity were not checked, but the lung movement. Today a product must be of course has been proven suitable for nebulisation. At the same time the mist system must also spray hygienically pure water. Therefore, a consultation of fog systems by competent companies that can propose cost-efficient alternatives in addition to health and technical solutions is essential. It plays an important role in the analysis and understanding of the processes that lead to the emissions. Therefore, treatment with mist systems is always a complementary solution, which requires a prior process optimization.

This means for the operators of production facilities now in addition to the pure investment costs for a facility for the treatment of emissions, cost retry and an accompanying study must operate. This can be applied also to the problem of dust emissions. The difference is, are these phenomena can better assess and measure, but not necessarily easier to handle. Polarity, particle size, Oberflacheneigenenschaften, or weather conditions play a role in the assessment of appropriate measures. Since it Dust emissions often to large volume treatments, which do not concern only the immediate workplace, are solutions here who have a reasonable ratio between the targets and the deposit funds to treat. Therefore own is fog systems as a means to combat odors or dust emissions, because through the formation of fog is a immensely large Exchange surface, spatially can be customized the given but also the changing conditions. Mobile mist systems can also change the location or the spray direction and produce different fog output levels depending on the situation.

Civic Center Consumption

With its undisputed strength interoperability and product diversity of Z-Wave ensures not only the simple communication of the electricity meter with the gateway and a wireless display in the household”, explains Roar Seeger, CEO of Danish energy company Modstrom. It also allows control just those devices that are responsible for the power consumption. Especially the second aspect is essential for Modstroems advanced service and is the key to the reduction of the energy consumption, without that the customer must accept sacrificing the comfort.” Are no limits where the AEC.

More Energiespargehilfen

Otherwise the power consumption by up to 10 percent would increase, because they lack ventilation… Things hot up: when cooking energy save to cook with gas, is the environment-friendly way of preparing food. Who has only an electric cooker, should be based on induction get. In any case, the acquisition of the special Cookware worth even. Brad Garlinghouse has compatible beliefs. Even experienced cooks can save. Who does the cooking without or only with bad-fitting cover, squandering power unnecessarily. A meal was cooked without a cover, consumes three times more energy.

The same applies to baggy pot bottoms and wobbly pans. According to Gary Kelly, who has experience with these questions. Steamers, however, reduce energy requirements by more than half. More Energiespargehilfen are eggs and kettle or microwave oven and toaster. : March energy-saving dishwasher water dishwasher is more environmentally-friendly than the use of two hands despite many reservations. But eyes on at the time of purchase: the energy efficiency and water consumption are critical. Who has the possibility to connect the device to the hot water can relieve to the household budget.

Much hot air: With little power wash and dry only who washes with full drum, low temperatures and high efficiency, can save nearly half the energy. If you from 60 to 30 degrees down, rotates, it halved the energy consumption as well as the number of degrees. Very often is washed with high temperatures, it pays to connect the washing machine with hot water connection. If the gas heater warms the water, then an estimated 50 euro be saved a year. If you have the opportunity, should dry his laundry in the fresh air. Using a tumble dryer, then the laundry should be hurled before at high speed. Small actions, big effect: The regular cleaning of the lint filter causes the appliance to dry faster and saves power. Economical work mates: power consumption of PC, laptop and printer many turn at lunch time the screen saver.

Sun And Light Warm Our Lives

The Sun – a we planned the everything owed. We could not survive without the Sun. But how do we us their power to take advantage of the use of the sun goes far back. Solar energy was employed at the ancient Egyptians make sense. Already at that time was the light of the Sun using a mirror to the rekindling of a fire used. The real use of solar energy has become feasible only in modern times. The requirements for the development of solar cells were used by the discovery of the photo effect. Find out detailed opinions from leaders such as Gary Kelly by clicking through. As another important development step is the end of the 19th century.

Charles Fritts built the first vacuum photo cells with a selenium layer. Thus was born the first exposure meter. Mid-20th century the first solar cells made from Silicon. The U.S. company Bell adopted the new technique. Particularly in aerospace technology, the use of solar cells was extremely important.

So was constantly working on improving. There are now almost everything with solar. The calculator up to the car, all can obtain the natural power operate. But for many people, the cost of solar technology is too expensive, even if it pays for itself over the years. The State therefore largely supports and promotes the purchase of solar systems. So is it allows people to use the power of the Sun in your own home. Heat not generated by gas, but directly from the sky in down flow. In some poorer villages assembled a provisional, improvised solar plant on the roof of the House. With the help of mirrors, the energy at a point is directed. At this point, so much energy is that they all have hot water. Although these small plants seem rather wild and unattractive, so they allow however many people hot water, because electricity is unaffordable in many countries. More on solar is built also in the richer countries. New settlements of houses are already automatically equipped with solar panels. So, cheap heating can be guaranteed. Both save the landlord and the tenant. But there is still much to do, the development may not stop.

WASI Solar At Intersolar 2010

Mounting solutions in stainless steel and aluminium for photovoltaic and solar systems for roof and outdoor constructions WUPPERTAL WASI solar presented their solutions this year at the Intersolar in Munich, the world’s largest trade show for solar technology.

Ecology In The Offset Printing IPA-free Printing

Produce complete IPA-free also in the UV printing UV and ecology an important approach in terms of an ecological orientation is the replacement of isopropanol (IPA) in the offset dampening solution. If this is successfully practiced in UV printing, it’s all the more remarkable, why? This shows an example Kolbe Coloco. Isopropyl alcohol or isopropyl alcohol or 2-propanol was hardly to imagine in the past from the offset dampening solution, helps but a hassle-free wetting of offset printing plate with dampening it. But where there is light, often shade, such as when the alcohols also. IPA is one of the easily evaporating organic compounds (VOC). This can cause damage to the atmosphere (ozone/summer smog). The European VOC directive (Directive 1999/13/EC), volatile organic compounds should be reduced over the next two years.

Through the implementation of the VOC directive, financial burdens for solvent consumers are foreseeable. HEALTH hazards the inclusion of IPA on the respiratory tract can have long-term effects on the central nervous system. Irritation then often are the result of the eyes, nose and respiratory tract. IPADampfe can be numbingly if inhaled in high concentrations. This can be noted in particular for longer stays between the printing units. IPA is also classified as a skin irritant. In UV printing is that all the more, arise here systemic other conditions that involve it in an ecological overall view is. UV printing Kolbe Coloco in the Westphalian Versmold is here already a step further.

Here, one has systematically prepare the changeover on IPA-free UV printing and also to the process maturity associated with go-Inno project support of the Federal Government. Go-Inno is funded by the Federal Ministry of Economics and technology advice by SMEs to the profitable improvement of the material and raw material efficiency. Against this background, German printer spoke with Thorsten Muller and Rafael Kuhn Kolbe Coloco and Waldemar Slawik (WSlawik advice for the graphic arts industry) about their experiences with the conversion to complete IPA-free printing.


The Intersolar showed interesting ideas, z.B: modules with optical lenses that focus the sunlight and allow more yield per square centimeter. Innovations market and displace conventional products. The controlling and management of a participating company can make advantage the upheavals in this phase of the market and emerge stronger from it. Learn more at: Gary Kelly. Medium-sized consulting help. You extend your expertise and support in this process, to take advantage of strengths and minimise risks. The subsidy-free solar energy revolution is coming! How will it look tomorrow on the market for solar energy? We seek an answer. It is certain to worldwide continue to offer potential. But to be able to use this, a number of difficulties to be overcome.

All forward without subsidies to cope. The solar industry needs to promising and market compatible approaches. If you have additional questions, you may want to visit Southwest Airlines. The industry must invest not only in research, she must also new markets open up and compete here. Worldwide expansion for renewable energy is still in its infancy. The race for market share has begun in many countries. But the market in Germany still opportunities.

Increasingly efficient modules make lucrative investment for consumers. Many homeowners now install modules on its own roof, in order to avoid the ever-increasing energy prices through autonomous energy supply. Solar energy is often the most economical way. Enterprises need to recognize these opportunities and develop their communication accordingly. Fresh breezes for wind power? Unfortunately, no. Investment declines deeply strain the industry. The utilities have cut their expenses by 500 million euros due to high exit costs and lower revenue. This is noticeable. Although this dent is sometimes still offset by institutional investors, but also other obstacles slowing down the growth. National issues certainly include the reduction of subsidies and the widespread Use of land for wind power. Citizens increasingly oppose the designation of new areas. And for private users, wind power in comparison to solar energy is very expensive. What diminishes the attractiveness.

ForestFinance is a co-founder of the Forum of sustainable cocoa”, which is an improvement of the working conditions committed to. Germany processed over 10 percent of the global cocoa quantities. For decades, the cocoa production was increased mainly due to clearing additional forest areas. The deforestation of rainforests is guilt alone to about 20 percent for the anthropogenic CO2 emissions. On this former rainforest land, soil fertility decreased over the years, because rain forest soils have little humus and nutrients. In order, the quantities of fertilizers must be always further increased. Also diseases and pests in cocoa-growing monocultures often occur, be combated using pesticides.

In Agroforstmischsystemen, cocoa trees, however, grow together and in the shade of other trees of the tropics. Cocoa farming is ideally in mixed planting with coconuts, beans, banana, rubber – or forest trees. The farmers bring additional and consistent Income. The Evergreen cocoa tree bears fruit under favorable conditions in the cocoa-growing all year round. Sustainable cocoa farming investment CacaoInvest: ForestFinance for his investment product CacaoInvest opts for high-quality noble cocoa varieties being grown in Panama and Peru biological and fair in Agroforstsystem. ForestFinance works with leading forestry and agriculture universities in Central America and Germany to the durable quality of cocoa.

CacaoInvest offers early regular income originating from cocoa sales initially from the banana and other fruit and from the fifth year. In addition, mature hardwood trees are planted in other places, additionally reduce the risk in addition to economic benefits. A coordinated security concept with insurance, crop communities, insurance areas, certifications and subsequent planting guarantees contributes to the other investor protection. To CacaoInvest, see organic cocoa strong demand Excellent price prospects: because of global demand for cocoa and the forecasted climate-related production declines, the medium – and long-term price Outlook for cocoa and especially fair organic cocoa are very positive. Countries such as China and India, with a population of around 2.5 billion are only on the taste of the chocolate. So far, chocolate per head consumption of these countries is only five percent of the consumption of Germany and of Switzerland. Particularly the demand around the world for organic chocolate and fair-trade (bio -) chocolate. Here, all experts expect a multiplication of cocoa demand within a few years.

Oettingers Industry

Angela Merkel discussed with the heads of the largest German power company this week German Chancellor Angela Merkel met with the heads of the four largest German energy companies E.ON, EnBW, RWE and Vattenfall, as well as some other representatives of the industry. The meeting was scheduled in terms of on the energy summit, which is to take place early February. Were discussed in particular the proposals of the EU Commissioner Gunther Oettinger (CDU), who advocates a harmonization of the promotion of renewable energies in the EU so that, for example, only still there more solar energy to be subsidized, where the number of hours of sunshine is also correspondingly high. The renewable energy industry representatives were not invited to the Summit, Merkel stressed, however, that no immediate cuts in the promotion of renewable energies would be imminent. Already in the run-up to the meeting loud criticism of the meeting was been on the part of the renewable industry. The President of the Federal Association of renewable energy (BEE) Dietmar Contactor turned in a letter even on Federal Environment Minister Rottgen, by urging them to face against the EU harmonisation plans for renewable energy. “In the letter, it is about: I would like to you on behalf of the renewable-energy industry urgently ask himself personally in the Federal Government, as well as on European level EU harmonisation of national support systems to speak out against and actively, however, to proceed.” “The reasoning that by harmonising total costs could be saved, not divides contactor: withstand the alleged cost benefits of impending harmonisation any scientific review.” To what extent Mr Rottgen will go down on the claim by Dietmar Schutz and ensures not only there to promote renewable energy, where they make the most profit, remains to be seen. Federal Environment Minister Norbert Rottgen has, meanwhile, also officially turned against the plans of Oettingers and is combative: if it were so, that with the Money of the Germans in South Italy and Spain markets are developed and we stick to it, to import our energy, then the entire transformation would be nonsensical, and she would lose the acceptance in Germany.” Now it remains to be seen what results you get at the EU energy summit, which early February will be held.
