Beekeepers Demonstrate

Beekeepers demonstrate demo for the protection of the honey bees, for the protection of the ecosystem and for the protection of the people of Brunswick, 18 honey bees before the Federal Office of consumer protection and food safety (BVL) July 2008 and their products are biological indicators that display the health of the environment. Recently, the honey bees by poisoning with the active ingredient Clothianidin were affected in Baden and Bavaria. Clothianidin belongs to a new generation of insecticides, the so called Neonicotinoids. For years, professional beekeeper indicate that Clothianidin has already caused damage to bees in other countries. The bee is just the tip of the iceberg in this year. NAVFAC often addresses the matter in his writings. Originally posted early given of the numerous still existing gaps in knowledge the re-registration of Clothianidin mordants is irresponsible. Now the poison may be returned from the next mass extinction seem only a matter of time”, NABU – CEO Leif Miller warns. NABU had in 2004 asked the BVL, also that the Neurotoxic to ban scoring means Gaucho (active ingredient imidacloprid) in Germany.

Also this poison is suspected to be toxic for bees and other insects. In contrast to Germany, France had imposed immediately after quickly extensive requirements and application restrictions to protect of the bees. QUOTE AT THE END From: m05/m05_08/08191.html after the technical background with the abrasion of the seed treatment was explained and found, make many beekeepers and consumers wondering how this could happen at all, that an insecticide can cause such damage. Angelo gordon might disagree with that approach. And why the active ingredient will be re-admitted to, although the extent of the damage is not yet fully captured. The fact is that the current approval process for pesticides has not prevented the damage. Therefore, the authorisation procedure can not sufficient to protect the natural environment, food safety and the consumer. For this reason, an initiative group of beekeepers demonstrated on Friday, July 18th, 2008 at 10:00 in front of the building of the Federal Office for consumer protection and food safety in Brunswick Registrar field. The demonstration is supported by the German occupation and purchase beekeepers federal, NABU, and other organizations (organic farming associations, entomologists, consumers, etc.). Following this demonstration followed by further actions. At the end of 2008 / beginning of 2009, a meeting in the Bundestag will be concerning plant protection products act instead of here the beekeepers want to indicate consumers the dangers for the environment and human.

Topping-out Ceremony For Unterfohring Geothermal Energy Center

First heat supply only a few weeks after laying the foundation stone for the power unit could be celebrated the topping-out ceremony for the heart of the geothermal plant in autumn – all work in the plan of Unterfohring on the Geovol site in the Unterfohring Etzweg. Our geothermal project is run successfully, accident free and happy”, noted Mayor Franz Schwarz satisfied, and it is also a proof that courage will be rewarded.” So you started already long before the start of the holes with the construction of the district heating network and was therefore able to begin in September of this year with the heat delivery to the first customer. “This ambition have can only be achieved where black by the cooperation of all companies involved in the construction and places, for the incredibly industrious application” thanked. High praise was the Mayor for his Council colleagues of all political groups ready: the project was and is supported by a great unanimity. We don’t discuss things, but tackle them and do it.” “Geovol Managing Director Peter Lohr was delighted about that the construction of the Energy Center, as already the whole geothermal project, absolutely in the timetable” Liege. “Having regard to the two newly supplied boilers for replacement and peak load supply Lohr said, one wants to use it as little as possible and celebrate rather further in the boiler house held fire”. Finally, the vast majority of the heat supply should come from environmentally friendly geothermal energy.

Finally, this building gets even a photovoltaic system on the roof and we have created a true centre of renewable energy.” Master carpenter Martin Kroh finally put the the event with the traditional topping. A triple high on builders, planners and craftsmen, he wished a speedy and accident-free course construction continue. Dr. Norbert Babyy

Lipizzaner Stud Farm

Horse manure to synthetic diesel – the CEHATROL technolgy makes it Berlin/Lipica possible 14.06.2011 – on the occasion of the Balkan tour the Board of Directors of the energy cooperative Freudenberg was, Frank Knauer, on the state stud Lipica (www.slovenia.info). The parties in talks about the exploitation of biomass went after a tour of the grounds and of the Museum of the Stud. It soon became clear that the resulting horse manure in its entirety not by farmers as fertilizer can be recovered. Therefore, the stud is currently seeking alternatives for energy use. “The exploitation of biomass is also in Slovenia a great theme, so Frank Knauer, Board member of EC Freudenberg EC.” Just the small-scale agriculture fits perfectly with our system of decentralised production of synthetic diesel of brand CEHATROL. The residue from the Slovenian agriculture and the Lipica stud farm to be used for the second generation of biofuels.

Anyone who uses these, takes his food. The growing interest in Alternatives, shows that more and more medium-sized companies want to become less dependent on oil and gas. An example is the CEHATROL fuel EC in Berlin. Again, the members are their own diesel producers. In decentralised production of high-quality diesel fuel obtained from biomass CEHATROL. CEHATROL, that is according to EN 590produziert, is the second generation biofuel. CEHATROL can be used easily for the refuelling of motor vehicles, and it can be mixed with conventional diesel.

Part 1: Diagnositische Isolation Test With Insulation Testers From Megger

Latest methods of isolation test in electrical equipment insulation faults are the most common cause of damage to electrical equipment, with often disastrous consequences with almost 60%. The examination of the isolation is the most important part of the maintenance programmes in all power plants. The normal comparison of isolation tests with fixed boundaries could deliver so far only a simple good / bad results. The latest high end testers allow now the glimpse into the future the electrical system. Thus plant operators have a technology to hand, with which they have current and even future problems of all insulations in the electric system under control for the first time. “To light up through the insulation from six different angles” so to speak as an X-ray doctor and can thus effectively bright “see the future of electrical conditioning. Connect with other leaders such as Nir Barzilai, M.D. here. Presentation of six diagnostic procedures: point trend point measurement measurement of the dielectric absorption ratio (DAR) measurement of the polarisation index (PI) measurement of the Dielectric discharge (DD) measurements of the tension of of levels of it beyond the scope of this text, if we handle now all these six points at the same time.

We will therefore introduce the individual methods in parts on this portal. They are marked with part 1 “etc. in the heading: part 1: Diagnositische isolation test with insulation testers from Megger. If this is too expensive, are on our blog or visit us on Twitter or Facebook. Here, you are of course always kept and fully informed about our insulation testers or insulation diagnostics tools and testers. Follow us where and how you want! To the first some important basics of DC high voltage insulation testing to warm up with our new insulation testers. Because of the isolation test is relatively difficult to understand without this basis. Whenever a voltage at a test object, the induced current is measured.

Save Gas And Heating Costs Minimize

To reduce the cost of gas is easier than you think. About small changes in the apartment, very much gas can be saved, without renouncing the comfort of the familiar. Continuously increase the fees in all walks of life. Whether gasoline, electricity or fuel oil, everywhere there are to observe only a trend upwards. As a consumer, you can then usually just watch and press in mitigation. For no one should renounce things such as the heating, which include the vital basic needs of each person.

The most popular and most comfortable heating concept is without question the gas heater. Deployment security guaranteed day-in, day-out, as well as not necessary storage of energy and an excellent heating energy efficiency contribute to the popularity of this heater. These positive aspects are overshadowed only by a circumstance, the rising price of gas. ERGO you have as a consumer then usually just save the chance to gas by changing the provider through a comparison of the gas or but fully and all the consumption decreases. Minimizing the temperature is of course the most convenient technique when the permanent natural gas save. Worthwhile, because it lowers the room temperature only to a degree, so, its five percent of heating costs can be saved in the course.

Living – and dining room, the perfect temperature in the rooms is incidentally at 18 and 21 degrees Celsius. Rooms relatively hardly used, should also hardly to not be heated. Edward Minskoff might disagree with that approach. In particular in areas such as the bedroom, hallway, or also the bathroom, heating costs can be saved because no permanent heat is required. In the bedroom there is anyway to recommend a temperature of 16 degrees Celsius for health reasons to keep. Save gas in the own dwelling it is possible but even with further hassle-free means. It is very popular to put such as furniture or other utensils before the radiator. The air in the room and the associated heat can circulate in the room however. This is then but by no means possible without restriction and should, if you seriously want to save gas, quickly be changed. But also the issue of ventilation is a love made cost trap. Shock ventilation is quite clear, that short down turn the radiator and open Windows for a few minutes. Although it is then temporarily very cool, however, significantly less heat than window at permanent on folded escapes in this case. Comparable to the honest save gas is to dry damp or wet lingerie in the living room. This not only increases the development of rot, but reduces the room temperature so drastically that the heating on full blast must be run again to compensate for this factor. In this case, it is considerably more economical to use a dryer. Although this requires a lot of power, is at the end but the less expensive practice to minimize the heating costs. Save a very expensive but may be effective technology for natural gas, is providing a new and modern gas heating system. Before making a purchase decision, one should be first of all carefully sniffed at Heizungssachkundigen. Especially an individually assembled heating concept can reveal quite at a home as markets acquisition. Very effective options for the gas saving have alternative heating systems, combined with photovoltaic technology.
