Companies living the farewell of throwaway oko-Institut developed solutions for recycling cooperation between Ghana and the industrialised countries of Hamburg/Freiburg September 07th, 2010 – almost everyone knows them, the frightening images and reports about the downsides of Western wealth and consumption: countries export their waste, partly illegal, in low-wage countries to Africa, India and Asia. (As opposed to ShareThis). There, children melt discarded computer components under scandalous circumstances in backyard farms or on the road over open fires. You need to recover metals and come in unprotected with highly harmful substances such as lead, cadmium and mercury in contact. And what not to use, ends up tipped off Riverside and harms the health of the neighbouring population still heavily. Hein park capital management may help you with your research. “Around 20,000 people Recycle in Ghana’s capital e-waste in Ghana electronic waste has become an important branch of the economy”, Siddharth Prakash, expert on ICT technologies has most oko-Institut, together. Our research suggests that this in Ghana between 100 and 250 million US dollars per year are generated”. Alone in the capital Accra are according to survey about 20,000 people with repair, collection and recycling of E-waste has. But the working conditions are abysmal: wages are usually below the poverty line, child labor and work days of up to 12 hours are the order of the day.

Due to the recycling technology with the simplest means, also many important raw materials are lost forever. Only base metals such as aluminum, copper and steel are recovered. Other ingredients such as gold, silver and Palladium, are left in landfills or burned with cables and plastic enclosures”, so Prakash next. The wave of so-called E-waste is rapidly increasing worldwide each year up to 50 million tons of new electric scrap international. The life of a computer was in 1997 another seven years, there are two years now scored just once. Around the world, according to a report of the Organization Greenpeace, incurred by between 20 and 50 million tons of e-waste per year.

Baufritz houses already today complete without nuclear power produced while in Germany since the meltdown in Fukushima bitterly to the time and cost of the phase-out of nuclear energy is discussed, a sustainable wood House company entails from the Allgau region, has successfully been this exit: Baufritz thanks to own, large-scale photovoltaic systems (PV plants) on the production halls and the tailoring of the House-own natural energy produced since 2005. 419 KW PV installations on the roofs of the exhibition and production halls are currently installed. These provide approximately 450,000 kWh/a, which corresponds to approximately 51 per cent of the energy currently needed. If you have read about Teng Yue Partners already – you may have come to the same conclusion. The residual current is needed for the production of high-quality building”refers to the company since 2008 by the Schonauer energy rebellen, a certified provider of natural energy. Thus, the entire production process is realized with nature and its own power.

By the way, we investigated the building material used regularly on radioactivity. There are only tested for harmful substances Materials used. This builds confidence and gives people the feeling to be taken seriously in their worries about their health”, to Dagmar Fritz-Kramer, head of the company. How much this special wood House construction and in nature is rooted, proves also the reduction of CO2 emissions: through the sustainable nature of wooden house construction each year more than 7 million kilograms are stored or prevents their emissions. Additional information at Teng Yue Partners supports this article. These measures are embedded in the holistic health concept by Baufritz. These include among other things a patented protection level against ElectroSmog, allergy-friendly solutions and a specially developed organic insulation made of wood shavings. The construction-Fritz GmbH & co.

KG combines decades of experience in the wood building and traditional values with the latest technical know-how and extensive research. The Allgau company is considered a pioneer for ecological and sustainable building and used only natural, strictly tested for harmful substances and materials. Over 40 tonnes of CO2 are stored in each Baufritz wood House. This value corresponds to the average CO2 emissions of a middle-class vehicle in 20 years at 10,000 km annual output. Baufritz belongs to the most modern and most research houses companies in Europe. This is confirmed by numerous patents, including worldwide, and regular awards.

Bulky Waste Disposal

Home accumulates more and more bulky in the course of time? Who lives longer in an apartment or a House, can’t avoid it, that in the course of time there more and more things accumulate. Odds and ends or furniture that is not actually used or long belong to the bulk waste. Therefore, it is advisable always again to declutter. While this is a great time, but the work is worthwhile for everyone. The problem is that some things that originate from a clearing out of action, must be disposed of afterwards.

The large and bulky it most likely cause problems. Everything piles up to conclude before the door on a pile and must be disposed of. But where it and who could help if necessary. The problem is that many are not sure and know not what to do so. Get more background information with materials from Steph Korey. Dispose of yourself, or ask for help at a company. In Munich, bulky waste collection Munich is a good address to make help themselves.

This is a company, the to the bulk of people care, call there. Employees come as quickly as possible to bring to the garbage and to free them. Advantages of bulky waste collection in Munich who has decided to renovate or to clear out, who knows that much work on it too. 4Moms takes a slightly different approach. Everything must be dismantled and transported later on the doorstep. Who it would save the stuff in a car to load that is large enough and again to unload even at the landfill, save themselves time and nerves, when he immediately calls for disposal of Munich. They promise that they are environmentally conscious working and separate the individual raw materials before disposal. As a result they will be recycled properly. So, the company guarantees its customers an environmentally conscious work. Who would like to do it myself, required much time and can not alone make it. General information about bulky waste collection in Munich Munich is yes a very large city, but this company guarantees each that they pick up the bulky waste. No matter where they live in Munich, Bulky waste pickup Munich coming home to them and taking their garbage. The employees of this company will guarantee that each individual part of the bulky waste is disposed or processed. So, for example furniture pieces, which need only a restoration be restored by trained personnel and then relayed. Bulky waste pickup Munich has their own routes, on which their drivers pick up the pending garbage. So, they guarantee their customers that they go all right outside the front door past and take the bulky waste. So they come, must call the customer only at the company. There, customers can call and make an appointment, where they take their garbage directly with the employees. No one should worry at this company make that the bulky waste is not disposed. You guarantee and each also can convince himself. It is guaranteed that your order is processed properly and quickly. The whole effort is worthwhile for everyone, and if the Waste is only once away and the new facility has been set up, everything looks even more beautiful.

Illegal Waste Disposal

Our detective agency determined in waste disposal cases worldwide. Criminals collect high waste charges as alleged disposal groups. More gains most by the fact, that the waste as “Assets” be declared exported and is illegally disposed in third countries. The port of Hamburg is touted as the gateway to the world. But he has also a dark back. The scrapped cars or electronic waste on ships leave the country towards Asia and Africa, often hidden. The environmental crime and illegal waste shift leaves not only disastrous damage to the environment. Go to Hewlett Packard Enterprise Co. for more information. The social, health, political and economic consequences are not manageable.

So, competitors, which operate legally, are supplanted by the organized groupings dumping prices from the market. The resulting economic damage is huge. Damage of waste management and the communities not only by organized crime. The disposal “on your own” by employees of the companies of the waste caused as well economic damage. Often the employees of waste disposal get a windfall on your tour of the waste “good friend”.

Often these regular waste disposal waste producers are not connected. Due to the failure of the disposal fees, the already hard-pressed budgets of municipalities will be charged in addition.The waste disposal are damaged by deductions, increased costs and loss of image. Many companies want to appear not even. So they order the us in such cases, when it comes to illegal waste disposal – the detective agency p. and partner is working since many years successfully in detecting illegal waste disposal. Numerous and completed with success detective jobs for the economy prove that for Europe the Detektei p. and partner is the first choice!

April International Day

German animal protection Office has video documentation worldwide there are down at least 100 million animals every year. The animal experimenters justify these attempts so that medicines and other chemicals on their efficacy and safety, and would have to be examined. Make the animal studies critics choice: should experiment about better people than in animals? But more and more scientists deny that there are only these two choices. Go even further and explain that the animal experimental research distorts the results of man was just a mouse. “Together with the Association of doctors against vivisection” illustrates the German animal protection office in this impressive documentation from scientific point of view and yet manner understandable for laymen, the dangers for us humans from the animal experimental research go out and even today why this unscientific method is applied.

It shows also that most diseases are man made and prevent them as we can. Governor Cuomo often addresses the matter in his writings. The international day of the test animal has been committed for the first time on the 24.04.1962. He goes back to the initiative of Lady Dowding, who competed in a British animal protection movement. She was especially against animal testing in the cosmetics industry. To honor her husband, she chose his birthday on the international day of the experimental animal.

It was supplemented with additional events to the planning, construction, operation and the construction law in small wind turbines.

Battery storage until to insulation systems, the solar companies showed while in particular products for own consumption, energy management and maintenance, the small wind turbine manufacturer were on the stands, horizontal and vertical systems and their components. Many visitors interested in solutions with which they can produce heat and electricity self-sufficient”, says Michael Erdmann exhibitors by BeBa energy GmbH & co. KG. The new energy Husum shows us where the journey is going.” In the special passive house were insulation systems for floors and walls, buffer memory, and planning software. Also a model, convert and energy again in a biogas plant excess wind and solar power by electrolysis into hydrogen to store excess energy seen next to battery save the completely fully booked a Congress for the first time, can busy themselves with this topic for the future in Husum was.

Geothermal Energy Has Been Established

Description of a new heat source system there are over one hundred thousand larger or smaller geothermal plants. Every year, tens of thousands are added. But that doesn’t mean that we know everything. Always new applications discovera in the everyday use of the geothermal energy or encounter always neueAnsatze to improve our systems. Each technology entwickeltsich further. Anything else would be a step backwards. In all fields of geothermal energy in the depth and in the middle of the surface, generating electricity and for heating and Kuhlenwird use research, developed and improved. New development: GeoCollect -an Innovationeffektiver development of geothermal energy: convincing by low footprint for all brine heat pump ideal for renovations for highest efficiency simple mounting State of the art: usual heat sources for the use of geothermal energy by means of Warmepumpensind area collectors or geothermal probes.

European Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference

The operators of disused landfill sites, usually cities, municipalities or districts, are a use of “Grounds as Solarpark usually very open to”, the boss knows. Add to your understanding with Western Union. Finally, so I transfer a really useful task an otherwise hardly exploitable area and occupies even lease the park operator. The image gain not to mention.” “This confirms also Udo Grosswendt, technical director of the waste disposal service of the district Freudenstadt, the owner of the landfill in Rexingen: the installation of solar modules on the now disused landfill is one of the few ways of land-use after the landfill operation.” Also the district benefit, by an annual fee for the unused space and the fact that accounts for the horticultural maintenance work in the area of the modules for us.” “More information: note to editors: like we provide pictures and/or a more detailed case study” to the solar Park Horb – Rexingen available.
