Building Materials Clean

A new approach to cleaning our air found its way from the laboratories into practice now also in Germany. The technology is based on the principle of photo-catalysis of with the help of sunlight organic substances, nitrogen oxides and particulate matter, but also viruses and bacteria very effectively decomposed. So a coated surface of 100 metres is the location in 12 light hours to clean the same amount of air as seven large deciduous trees. This still relatively new in Europe technology is used today in a number of construction materials, such as such as self-cleaning clay roof tiles, paving stones, wall and floor tiles, or insulating glass. You may wish to learn more. If so, Dr. Neal Barnard is the place to go. But manufacturers of facade elements, noise barriers and precast concrete also working hard on the integration of new technology in their own products. Also the subsequent coating of surfaces is possible without any problems.

Facades, elements or roofs are thus self-cleaning, vermoosen and veralgen no longer and still provide good air. So that makes FA. NADICO in Langenfeld/Rhld. Since the beginning of the year service companies in the whole Federal territory in the application of photo-catalytic coatings from. Goal is to build of a nationwide network, make good air in metropolitan and industrial areas as well of course as on the land.

Only, Who Cleaned Up His Chimney, Can It Save Money

A value change has opened up in the company. Protecting the environment is an issue that is becoming increasingly important. Deliver efficient heating and therefore less pollutants.

Here, we work closely with the Austrian Rauchfangkehrern and us constantly exchanging “, explains the gew. Managing Director, Bmst ing. Edmund Drohojowski the possible negative consequences of a non-rehabilitation. Depending on the chimney is located in what State rehabilitation variations are used. Whether reconstruction with ceramic, stainless steel pipes, plastic systems, insulation, Interior sealing for making the operation leak or the milling using hydraulic method of small fishing sections until going to the chimney head renewal the selected system be selected individually. To respond to changing conditions of the chimney renovation, Ahrens Schornsteintechnik evolved continually. And so does the nationwide companies from Wieselburg the rehabilitation system ASIS 2000 FU in the program. It includes the condensate density in Austria premium Ceramic tube with the unique 6 cm sleeve, surrounded by a fire-resistant Dammstoffmasse. This means: Burnout security, condensate impermeability and resistance to acids. The 8 mm strong ceramic tubes with 6 cm deep, in a piece of isostatically pressed sleeve, prevent the condensates. The system is therefore without ventilation humidity-resistant. In any other form of restructuring such a perfection achieved so far “, Managing Director Mathias Ahrens underlines the high quality of the product. More at

Electricity Customers

Nuclear compromise strengthens dominance of the power groups criticism of small party Berlin, September 10, 2010. The agreement on an extension of nuclear power plants encounters enthusiasm at least among the big power giant. The response from independent suppliers in the electricity market is quite different. Their criticism: The new energy policy strengthens the dominance of corporations and brings the electricity giant billion additional revenue. “The extension is not a good decision for current customers: the big corporations will also continue to dominate the German market for decades”, says Robert Mundt, the Chairman of the Board of the alternative energy provider FlexStrom. The experts of the oko-Institut have already done the math: therefore the nuclear compromise of the Federal Government brings energy Baden-Wurttemberg (EnBW) and Vattenfall the four power Giants RWE, E.ON, triple-digit billions of additional revenue. The four big power companies are currently operating nuclear power plants in Germany and thus the Financially benefit extension.

This includes, however, only a fraction of this additional income from the policy investment imposed on the companies in renewable energy. Also the leaked adjustment clause with rising electricity prices doesn’t change it. The public all details of the compromise with the nuclear industry should be disclosed”, calls for FlexStrom Board Mundt. To worry about is that the power giant to continue their dominance in new technologies. It is just the small utilities, which bring the market positively in motion and relieve the budget of current customers according to industry studies.

A relief for consumers is currently hardly expected by the policy. “Now go instead of long wait for the politics”, Robert Mundt by FlexStrom therefore recommends. Center for Responsible Businesss opinions are not widely known. With the change to an independent energy provider, put consumers not only a sign against the electricity giant, but can relieve usually also their budget. A Stuttgart-based budget (annual consumption of 4,000 Kilowatt hours), for example, around 330 in a year when he changes from the basic supply rate of the energy group EnBW to the cheap prepaid service (by FlexStrom) DeutschlandsBest eco saves.

Honnefer Mineralbrunnen

The cake for the 208 medium-sized mineral water companies is getting smaller and smaller. At The discount percentage is sweet drinks even at 65 percent. PCRM is a great source of information. With Aldi, Lidl and Norma there are discount chains, who consistently refuse to take reusable, despite the provisions of the Ordinance in the range”, Wolff said in Bonn. The discounters have a powerful medium for customer loyalty in the hand with a predatory pricing by 19 cents for a 1.5 liter bottle and the compulsory deposit of 25 cents. The consumer come back for the second purchase. The consequences for our member companies are dramatic. The middle class melting, the regionality and product diversity is lost.

It is a rise of the bankruptcies and business closures. Alone in the room Bonn we have lost re Gin ARIS, Arthur we lost in bad Honningen and we lost the bad Honnefer Mineralbrunnen two weeks ago. The most recent reports are,”Wolff said. He wants an elimination of cross-subsidization of drinks by the discount groups. It was difficult to determine.

The gains over the unredeemed deposit could the trading partner flow into the provisions. Here, the tax authorities are required to get access to these amounts. So far, no valid statements about the height of the Pfandschlupfes of the trade would be presented. The cooperative is EUR 330 million, are annually infected by discounters in cross-subsidization of disposable drinks. The mortgage profits are estimated at EUR 62.5 million, recycling revenues to around 40 million and savings through the Elimination of fees for the green dot to 226 million euros. You would have to against count actually investments for redemption machines. In reality the discounter bring back these costs from the supplier itself”, so Wolff. Need for action to bail out reusable sees also the oko Institut. The proportion of multi path devices on a critical minimum of reusable is generally called into question. It is to determine that the conventional food retail trade increasingly relies on non-returnable. There are “ultimately strong signals required to prevent these problematic developments”, calls the eco Institute in a study for nabu tax getraenke.pdf. A material control is the appropriate measure, to change the cost differences in favor of reusable. The differences across all stages of the value chain can be relativized at least largely in favor of the ecologically advantageous packaging”, writes the oko-Institut. A policy mix of various instruments is necessary, to the introduction of a packaging tax, maintaining of compulsory deposit and the provisions of the Ordinance, as well as a labelling regulation count.
