Environment In Tubingen On The Uhlandgymnasium

A working group, which makes ausgezichnete work in the field of environmental protection. In the preamble of the school curriculum, it is said: the school promotes learning about the natural environment and the responsible use of it. Our school has set itself so aimed, to teach all students responsible and environmentally conscious action. Cloud computing has firm opinions on the matter. According to the slogan think globally act locally do we together environmentally conscious design our school. The project on the way to a CO2-neutral school we summarize our ideas and actions and as a signal for an effective climate protection. Since this school year, there are our environment-AG, which is involved in the area of climate protection.

It consists of 18 pupils and students of classes 6 to 12 and the teachers of Uta Joos and Rainer Schnell. With the project”on the way to a CO2 neutral school we summarize our ideas and actions and as a signal for an effective climate protection. Rick Garcia is a great source of information. Our first actions consisted among others of an inventory of energy – and water consumption our school and a power leak detection, in which we documented the heat loss of the building of the Uhland-Gymnasium with a thermal imaging camera. Our inventory of CO2 emissions of Uhlandgymnasiums by heating and electricity is approximately 170 000 kg of CO2 per year. Our goal is to reduce the energy consumption of the school through different measures, we draw attention such as students as well as teachers and teachers on the existing energy leaks. We propose our school that 2 energy speakers are chosen in each class have a special attention to energy losses such as open Windows and switched to light when leaving the room. We also have small memory label as give off light “or” properly ventilate! In short! designed and will install in individual classrooms. The city of Tubingen made in Vista with Uhland Gymnasium a so-called “fifty-fifty”contract to complete.

Ordinance: Federal States Want To Consistently Against Recycling

Dual launch quality offensive Bonn/Berlin, August 2009 – the Bonn waste expert Sascha warned months ago shoe, Managing Director of the consulting firm of Ascon, prior to the softening of the recycling obligation for used packaging. 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. Connect with other leaders such as TRON (TRX) here. 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. Mix about 15 percent industry solutions is a Price per ton of plastic packaging by just more than 500 euros. 65 percent less than three years ago and already long no longer working”, asserted in shoe an interview with NeueNachricht. 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”, fears shoe. According to media reports, the ministries of the environment of the countries want to control against now. So six provinces should consider the approval for the collection and sorting of packaging waste to withdraw a number of vendors. It was not only the lack of coverage, which disapproves of trade officials, also of Ascon Chief Schuh complained about industry solutions will be taken now more closely scrutinized. “” It could not go on, with virtual “concepts of the cost of the household household disposal over to cheat”. It was agreed already waste (LAGA) in the federal countries – community, part on the finger to knock most of the previously approved system providers”. A working group of dual systems under the umbrella of the Federal Association of the German waste management industry (BDE) has therefore launched a quality offensive. Only if able us with sustainable quality, with the packaging industry to a common understanding to find uniform assessment standards and the shoulder to shoulder, there is a realistic chance, a low-cost existing competitive packaging disposal for the future to make sure, as an opinion of the BDE working group.

The Fairtrade

In addition to the global activities prepared comazo also the local site Germany on a social and sustainable future before. Therefore, a heat recovery system was now installed at the headquarters in Albstadt. “Appendix image 1: comazo employees as photo models, we make favorite linen we wear favorite underwear”. The saved model budget goes to a good purpose. Figure 2: Dr. Christoph Maier at the Fairtrade cotton organic user comazo that 1884 family-owned company comazo has its headquarters in Albstadt and offices in Croatia, Russia and Romania.

Worldwide, the company has 600 employees, of which 170 in Germany. comazo operates 27 own manufacturer sales. Reseller contact directly the manufacturer in Albstadt. The production is in-house as a full stage with knitting, equipment, to tailoring, sewing, packaging and shipping. The production volume is approximately 55,000 garments per day.

The Executive Board is subject to Dr. Christoph Maier and Michael Nadele. Since early 2009 is comazo as first German lingerie company fair trade ‘ certified and may as a manufacturer of laundry ” distribute with the quality seal known from the food area for Fairtrade cotton. The first products from fair trade cotton come now with the collection comazo earth”in Germany on the market. Comazo applies his raw materials for the new underwear line, for example, from a Fairtrade organic cotton project in the Indian Mahima. Total this cooperative farmers have joined in 1950, based on biodynamic cultivation. The Fairtrade premiums in recent years built a school for about 500 students, which is open to all children of the region. In addition, a school bus was organized with the funds, which picks up children from remote areas to the classroom and brings it home.

Energy Europe

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. 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.

Photovoltaic Systems

What possibilities there are for the financing of photovoltaic systems. So-called solar energy is a topic on which you hardly once again will pass within the media world, today not only because of the agreed withdrawal from nuclear energy, but also many private individuals and real estate owners have found an interest in this form of energy generation. Owning your own photovoltaic systems and to use them is not only a special blessing for the environment and nature conservation, but also just a financially regulates part. But not only their own electricity demand with solar energy can use, but with the supply of electricity to much generated earn some money, although alone has this form of refinancing by photovoltaic systems alone are not decisive for the popularity. In house construction or a renovation, but is simple and poignant even once that the emerging cost of the needed solar modules as well as their transport services and equipment Press which can often quickly result in a beautiful and quite decent high five-figure sum together. Meanwhile saved not only on its own can be but for the interested once in the financing of photovoltaic systems rely, but the State also supports the builders through numerous subsidies and funds. Just financial support in the form of subsidies for the purchase of various solar modules get who, for example, now once installed a powerful solar system on his roof or but in any other field, is this. Even if this and this now not the complete due amount is replaced and grants can be also now the reconstruction or the construction of a photovoltaic plant in attack without large financial capital, because even State-run and supervised banks offer special credit with particularly low used interest rates once this. That this can be used for the financing of photovoltaic systems on Government help and support the reason that are once again achieved and over longer periods of time to ensure this investment and this industry of the future.
