Saving Water On World Environment Day

CerMix blue setting sustainable standards BONN standard and evolution of JADO ideal, may 2011. An intact environment in water, air and soil is the basis of life of all people. Since 1976, the international day of the environment in Germany is celebrated on June 5. The philosophy of the world environment day, to think about the effective use of natural resources and the protection of the Earth, goes hand in hand with the goals of ideal standard international. So the company is committed to design ever more innovative environmentally friendly products that focused on the real needs of the people and not compromise on use, functionality and safety. Others who may share this opinion include Ray Kurzweil. Governance and sustainability in ecological and economic aspects of leading bathroom manufacturers with new products, which were developed in collaboration with the renowned design studio artifact shows ecological: CerMix blue and evolution are masters in water and energy saving and keep it as low as possible the impact on the environment.

The next generation In a new era of water saving, ideal standard CerMix blue starts the valve technology. The new collection consisting of 16 new models reduces the consumption of water and energy when compared to a conventional faucet concisely and thus contributing to the protection of the environment. At the same time, the series is leading the way in the field of aesthetics and functionality, the responsible handling of water as well as the security and hygiene. CerMix blue shines due to the innovative design of the Mixer taps: the so-called IdealPure technology decouples the waterways completely from the faucet body. This ensures a better quality of drinking water and for health and safety in accordance with the drinking water directive of the EU. Proud owner of the new CerMix blue can enjoy also generation of water and energy savings in the hundreds per year. Compared with an average fitting 80 percent of less stagnation water is produced and the temperature of the water is ten times faster than usually achieved.

Active climate protection through climate-neutral production consumers demand increasingly resource-efficient action by companies. Policy and legislation promote modern environmental commitment and have governed with ISO 14044 standards, for example, the necessary conditions and requirements for the creation of LCA. To support its customers in their climate protection activities, the company of Manhillencards has now undergone an environmental certification and offers to compensate for the total CO2 emissions resulting from the production of card orders. “As the card manufacturer we take an absolute lead so”, explains Frank Manhillen, CEO of Manhillen pressure technology GmbH. As a member of the Association of print and media (vdm) in Baden-Wurttemberg e. V.

was the plastic card specialist first company, that works with this substrate, CO2 tested on the basis of a scientifically recognized procedure. Three steps for climate protection: prevent, identify, compensate for the fresh CO2-approved company pays in a first step, to use energy and materials efficiently and thus to conserve valuable resources. The climate-neutral production of maps produced so exclusively on the also previously offered environmentally-friendly bio-PVC. This material is as durable as standard PVC, but 100% bio-degradable. Like ordinary PVC, bio-PVC is based on crude oil and rock salt (57%). However, other substances be added to in the manufacturing process, which make the material 100% bio-degradable. On the domestic compost or compost bin, these cards are compostable in 40 months without leaving any toxic residues.

However, the emission of a certain quantity of production-related CO2 emissions in the production of paper, cards raw material, paints and varnishes, for the production of printing plates, the actual printing, the personnel and transportation can be not completely avoid. In a second step, a scientifically-proven CO2 Calculator, the CO2 emissions allows order-specific and for the finding the whole process chain of print production. “The accounting framework of our CO2 Calculator focuses 14040 and 14044, which is the basis for the creation of CO2 balance sheets for printed products here on the valid eco balance sheet standard DIN/ISO.”, Michaela Lehmann explains at the Association of print and media in Baden-Wurttemberg for the climate initiative.

Photovoltaic Solar Storage

Tips on how to buy and use a solar store on PV solar saving interest is growing. On the one worth the storage solutions now also for private households; on the other hand, domestic consumption reduces electricity costs. But what the use specifically there to consider? The place how much space required a solar memory?” This is an important issue from the perspective of our customers. There are different designs depending on the provider. A PV solar storage tank is usually no larger than a washing machine. But it is even practical smaller: the solar storage tank of the ever energy group will need less space and are about as big as a 100 litre fridge. The best are cool and ventilated, but at the same time Frost-proof premises. Many homeowners take advantage of the basement rooms to build the solar storage tank.

The battery is placed on the dry and stable ground, installed the display and other equipment on the wall. Thereby, but the proximity to the meter box is not necessary. If you are unsure, what rooms Installation in the House are possible, as should consult an expert. Apart from the basement, more places are to imagine, for example, the budget rooms. Which are actually suitable for a storage medium should be necessarily advance.

No burning source in the immediate environment is recommended, about three meters to the PV-solar heat around neither smoke nor to kindle a fire. That includes setting up devices that, for example, a Sparks hervorufen could. Ventilation as previously mentioned, is the be-all and end-all of a solar storage tank ventilation. It is important that the room through Windows or doors can be supplied with air. Also, there are vents in the solar storage tank. To ensure the air exchange, items in at least 50 centimeters are to set up distance or to hang. Pressure even if the shape of the solar store offers the device is not suitable as a shelf for items or as a seat. Therefore the manufacturer note is necessarily Note that the solar storage tank never print to strain. Warranty seal will not void the warranty, is to ensure the integrity of the seal. It is attached usually by the installer. When it comes to errors, then please do not personally open the cover and the Cabinet. Get advice and support from experts. Good to know: there are varying product and storage guarantees depending on the provider. The ever energy group awards such as on the PV-solar storage tank a six-year product warranty on power electronics and a ten year store warranty. No problem providing power outage of the solar storage tank with electricity, even if your neighbors in the dark. Using the saved kilowatt hours you can without power about one day Cook, bake, wash and use hot water.

GreenTec Awards

Emission-free electric mobility and innovative design are sweet at the Centre, the 21 April 2013 – again be GmbH & co. KG and the solar charger the EIGHT suggested Point.One for a prestigious award. The GreenTec Awards 2013 honor pioneers who go ahead on the way to a green future, a step. Companies to reduce technologies, products, innovations and services that contribute to preserve the environment in terms of environmental sustainability and pollutants will be nominated and awarded. Mobility is the company sweet with his solar charging station in the category”nominated. The EIGHT GmbH & co. aims KG to inspire people for emission-free mobility.

For this among other things the solar charging station has developed Point.One, which embodies all the positive properties of electric mobility, and which makes it possible that electric vehicles are a part of modern urban life. Thanks to innovative production technologies and a digital process chain has the company provide a platform for the efficient realization individually designed products. Environment and mobility are years in the Centre of attention. The pressure to find environmentally sound solutions and to implement, is growing. The degree of mobility of the world’s population is increasing, the resources are dwindling and emissions need to be reduced dramatically”, Christoph B. explains Rossner, managing partner at EIGHT. “Here we want to use the solar charger Point.One a character set, that is design leaning on through innovative technology, conservation of resources, a sustainable use concept and the organic forms of nature.” EIGHT is currently working in a joint project with ABB, BMW, RWE and other partners on a quick charging station for electric vehicles, which will be opened by mid-year. The station is at the BMW Welt in Munich. EIGHT developed a customized and aligned with the needs of users solar charging station for the new charging standard CCS / combo. As future-oriented interface between human, vehicle and renewable energy makes the solar charger the potential of emissionsfrier mobility visible, tangible and usable.

Example Polaris

How the decision of change of changed the CO2 balance and prevents one of the largest climate sins; Example Polaris alone through a sustainable electricity can everyone in the course of his life up to around 30 tonnes of CO2 savings. * this amount is comparable to the emissions of a VW buses *, with the man twice circled the Earth. “In the face of rising especially in the field of information and communication devices power consumption in households, is always crucial a conscious choice of energy, sustainably to protect climate and environment”, says Florian Henle, co-founder of the independent green energy provider Polaris. Already, experts predict that carbon dioxide emissions can be increased by up to two percent 2012. A few days ago, even nearly the tilt limit has been reached in some places on the Earth. Thus the amount of concentration of greenhouse gases is meant in the atmosphere, from the consequences of climate change are no longer recovered.

The global consequences such as cyclones, floods and droughts are valid under Experts then as a little more manageable. Power consumption: one of the greatest sins of climate at home climate sins, which are triggered by the consumption of electricity, can be different than, for example, in the consumer or in the diet with only a measure to prevent: who will switch to green electricity, which avoids with each kilowatt-hour consumed that it further CO2 is emitted into the atmosphere. Through the increasing use of digital devices, households need more and more power. The consumption in the area of audio/TV and Office to the 3,5fache has increased since 1996. Today he makes almost a quarter of the total private consumption out. * also the power consumption for washing, drying and flushing has greatly increased in recent years. Instead of despair in the face of the diversity of possible measures, you should focus better on a manageable measures, advises Immanuel came by the ISOE the Institute for social ecological research.

Therefore Gorke

In the normal case, all formalities are as Services taken over by the new provider. Now there are hundreds of tariffs of many alternative providers. A real confusing hardly transparent conditions is no longer comprehensible for the average consumer. Therefore, assistance in the selection of the appropriate provider is necessary. But that should be a change in the way. Because as I said: this cost center a lot can easily save money, without any loss of quality.

The electricity and the gas are the – or the same, get the customer has also been delivered. Calculator and price comparison for electricity and gas in the Internet however is the ability to change the provider for electricity and gas so far hardly use made. Apparently, many reservations are based largely on ignorance is in the population. Enquiries we get multiple financial planning in Wennigsen (Deister) with the remark by Gorke, we want to be but not suddenly without electricity if the new provider will broke”. In this case, which has But well prepared legislators.

Because the basic provider must continuously jump up and accept the delivery, if it should happen. Another reason is that as mentioned above, the collective diversity is overwhelming and found the average consumer have more difficulties also. Despite many fare product calculators that are offered for free on the Internet, it is difficult to find the correct tariff or gas tariff. Gorke has financial planning in addition to the tariff comparison calculator on its site on the Internet ( power & gas.html) also the possibility, to confront an individual tariff free and non-binding together. Easier it then but not anymore. But also, who wants worry myself to save money by changing the provider for electricity and gas, throw often whether the tariff diversion quickly the towel and continue to pay the excessive utility bills. Extensive information on the topic of power on the Internet available apparently lacks the interested citizens to the necessary information to be able to learn independently and neutrally about the different tariffs and conditions. Therefore Gorke has created in addition an information page financial planning to his Internet page on electricity and gas, which deals in detail with the subject of power. The extensive information ( info.html) include the correct reading of the electricity bill, as well as data on electricity prices and taxes and ABgaben. Last but not least explains how we can switch power and save, we change the current provider. This is important, of course, what contract details for current contracts are to be observed. Who wants to deal with the liberalisation of the electricity market, is also introductory information. The main types of energy are discussed and important for those who want to rebuild or renovate: Government subsidies for Neubauten and renovations, heat pump heating, as well as the IEKB – austerity measures for citizens. What is not may be missing: saving tips to the power, because this way we can save even more, not only money, but also resources, thereby limiting the environmental impact.

The most important properties that must have a charging station, a short charging time, different payment and charging options, security, profitability and last but not least, the use of electricity produced from renewable energy sources such as solar, for example, include, according to the study,”, reports Christoph B. RABAH. Because only a few current charging stations meet these requirements, electric mobility actually plays an important role at the moment only in almost 30 percent of the company. Here the manufacturers in the obligation to comply with the requirements of the customers are.” While 60 percent of all companies surveyed consider purchasing a solar charging station only in the next three years realistic, so the fundamental support of the technology is large: 38 percent think that electric mobility especially for environmentally friendly and 24 percent speak of a technology of the future. Even see all 74 percent high to very high chances of Electromobility in Germany. The EIGHT GmbH & co. KG is headquartered in sweet and was founded in the year 2011 by Christoph Radchenko and Thomas Prinzing.

Climate Cross

FIFA Women’s World Cup 2011 will be green just in time for the start of the FIFA Women’s World Cup climate hotels give your climate cross of the Green action goal. This is the environmental program of the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2011, which captures the impact of such a major event and measures designed to prevent environmental damage or to reduce. Nine modules help. The first building block is the climate fair World Cup. As much as possible environmental impacts should be avoided or else largely reduced. Also, CO2, that cannot be avoided, should be compensated in climate protection projects. As a second component, the total energy required for this major event, should be reduced. The energy demand of a stadium remains very high, therefore also renewable energies should be used.

It is the goal to still apply these different forms of energy in the stadiums after the World Cup. Another important component is the water. This is needed primarily for the irrigation of the lawn, but also the water for showers should at a World Cup not to be underestimated. The goal is to reduce all this water and avoid waste loads. The fifth module is waste, which of course is one such major event in mass.

To reduce these the organizers want on reusable systems use, reduce paper consumption and pay attention to proper waste separation. Two more modules are mobility and catering for the visitors. Also this should if possible eco-friendly designs will. The two last are to raise awareness among visitors and finding strong partners to implement this whole projects into practice. Especially the communication to the visitors is important, because only if everyone, this World Cup can be environmentally friendly. Behind the climate-hotels Germany hosts, ecologically and economically have optimized their CO2 emissions for example due to consistent energy saving, and have committed themselves to further climate protection measures.

Woodchip Heating

Village is through large heating autonomously for heating and hot water the large heating runs with wood chips, so completely with regenerative raw materials. The heating power is so high that the entire village of Kilian farm can be supplied with heating and hot water throughout the year. Thus, the village in this regard is completely self-sufficient. Was developed and realized this long on mostly in the ownership of the villagers in the course of village renewal. Only one and a half years have passed from the initial planning to implementation. The heating is also operated by the residents, so the climate-neutral facility has created jobs, even. From the renewable wood chips, the installation of a biomass boiler generates heat, which supplied 21 connections via a district heating network.

Eleven more are already planned. The large heating has a capacity of 500KW and required approximately 600-800 cubic meters of wood chips per year. This mass of wood is however coming available in their own forest. Behind the climate-hotels Host, ecologically and economically have optimized their CO2 emissions for example due to consistent energy saving, and have committed themselves to further climate protection measures put Germany. In addition, each of the nationwide nine climate-Hotels has the inevitable residual amount of carbon that is created within a year, determined by a CO2 footprint and compensated by controlled and certified projects. Thus, climate hotels offer their guests a climate-neutral stay without having to give up anything as a guest.

Viabono has developed in cooperation with CO2OL, an experienced consulting and service agency for operational climate protection, to a CO2 Calculator for the hospitality industry. Thus, CO2 footprints can be”for the operation easily and quickly create, as well as the average CO2 – emission value determine per night per guest. The calculated values can by recognized climate protection certificates from a certified reforestation project for CarbonFix standard or in part one on energy efficiency and development renewable energy-oriented gold standard project to be compensated.

Atmospheric Sciences

Index to public interest in climate change increases only slightly / more than half of the respondents would pay more for electricity Berlin, 9 August 2011. The debate at the turn of the power, has little influence on the topic of climate protection. The index to the public interest in climate protection, the non-profit co2online GmbH quarterly published within the scope of their climate barometer shows that. The value determined on the basis of four indicators increased in the second quarter of 2011 only slightly from 66 to 68 points. The consequences of the nuclear phase-out and the energy transition also were the subject of online surveys, carried out by co2online for the climate scoreboard. 43 percent see especially lack of social acceptance as a problem for the expansion of renewable energies. Only 28 percent rate the high cost as an obstacle. With 54 percent, the majority is willing to take, of which 11 percent higher electricity costs up to 20 euro per month, seven percent up to 40 euros.

Also, 40 percent of respondents expected with increasing investments in renewable energy. Only 14 percent see the massive development of fossil, climate-changing energy sources such as oil or coal as a main result of the nuclear phase-out. Rising while hardly changed the climate protection interest demand for eco-electricity demand to eco power rapidly, as the Internet public interest shows. “Frederick, project manager of the climate scoreboard painted however raises the question, whether the numerous new customers for green electricity provider for reasons of climate change or nuclear power customers” changed. “Hartmut Grassl from the Centre for marine and Atmospheric Sciences (ZMAW) in Hamburg sees the evolution, however, rather positive: the German energy revolution has done more for long-term climate protection as generally discussed, because now the renewable energies and the power networks faster be expanded as a citizen and believe the policy.” The climate scoreboard with all other results as well as current graphics are available in the Internet at join/climate barometer for downloading.
