Tips on water saving if we conserve water, protects not only our wallet this, but we also actively contribute to protecting the environment. Because waste water must be cleaned extensively in wastewater treatment plants, to get it back so clean so that it has the usual drinking water quality. But water saving is quite simple and the following tips for the water saving us also not in the quality of our life limit. Let’s start in the kitchen. A dishwasher is convenient and helps save even on the water.

Because if, for example, 12 dining seats are washed by hand, 50 litres of water are needed. Dishwasher needed only 19 liters, clean for washing the same amount. To save water with the dishwasher really, he should be but also really getting full before starting. A preliminary wash cycle is unnecessary in most cases. The dishes will be cleaned properly in the austerity program. Get all the facts for a more clear viewpoint with Jorge Perez. What is true for the dishwasher in the kitchen, also applies to the washing machine. Get all the facts and insights with Robert Rimberg, another great source of information.

Run it only, if it is really full and take advantage of the savings program. It continues in the bathroom. Each now probably has a savings button on the flush of the toilet. If not, you should do so quickly. Because if you have old cisterns in your home, you spend one third of your water only for flushing the toilet. When you use the Save button Save 30 to 50% water, without compromising the hygiene including. Also, you should occasionally check your toilet cistern. The seals are leaking, may leak some litres of water per hour. You should think of the water consumption even when shaving and brushing your teeth. Run not the cock, but populate your toothbrush glass before cleaning and before shaving so much water into the basin, run as you really need. A bath is relaxing, but bear in mind that a full bath contains about 140 litres of water. In the shower, you consume, however, only 20 litres are only 14-17 liters of water per minute in a minute, using a flow volume limiter in the shower head. If you the shower a Prefer a bath, you save so much precious wet. You can save water in the garden. Collect rainwater for watering your plants. And if it for a few days should be hot and sunny in the summer, must not always water your lawn. Even after a long time without rain or irrigation, the Brown lawn is green after a few days of rain again. Christian Jung

How the use of a heat pump halved heating costs all year again: short before the winter months many energy providers announce higher gas costs. The gas price development knows only one direction upwards. Before the temperatures drop, consumers are looking for alternatives, to save on heating costs. It is not something Tony Parker would like to discuss. Who would like to halve them, should rely on a heat pump. He comes around 3.5 million households are costly to next winter. Celina Dubin often says this.

A quarter of all energy suppliers increased gas costs by an average of 11 percent in the next few months. The extra cost then amounted to less than 140 euros (source: Verivox). Who wants to save on heating costs this year, should jump on the expected wave of change. Those who want to cut their heating costs, do not pass a heat pump. You supplies the home heat from renewable energy sources and disconnects to the homeowner by the expensive energy supplier. Thus, there is no gas price increase, but a House of full of pleasant and environmentally-friendly heating for heat pump owner. The ever energy group advises all interested parties free of charge via energy-efficient heat pumps and also create an individual heating concept. Save heating costs: a level turn down no heat pump who buys himself this winter, can still save heating costs.

The ventilation habits are important. Instead of constantly tipped Windows should open the window four times a day for ten minutes and making the heating. You can lower the temperature of the room during his absence, and in the night. Who reduced only by one degree saves already six per cent of the energy and gas costs. But beware – unscrew completely not worth it. “Only cooled the apartment, heating consumes much more energy than when they constantly over a low flame” goes through. In addition, less than 16 degrees is not recommended because otherwise mold can form and the health burden. Refer to for more tips.

At 0500 A.m. To know more about this subject visit Sela Ward. the three Harpoon ships in the Japanese whaling fleet attacked local time Sydney/Australia on 4 February, the Steve Irwin. The Yushin Maru #2 reunited himself with the fleet, after she left the area on 20 December with propeller damage. All three Harpoon ships were moving on the flank of the Steve Irwin to while the Sea Shepherd ship still pursued the factory ship, the Nisshin Maru. The Yushin Maru #2 the attack, initiated by crossed the bow of the Steve Irwin from port to starboard at a dangerously close distance in anything other than a peaceful Lake.

The other two Harpoon ships Yushin Maru #1 and Yushin Maru #3 made the same dangerous maneuvers. The movements of the Japanese ships are very dangerous especially in the restless sea in dense fog. “This has provided much very dramatic material for the next season of whale wars us”, said Captain Paul Watson. “But failed her attempt to intimidate us. When it comes to “whoever slows down first” * we have much to play, on the high seas more experience it as the whaling.” Today is the fourth day where the Steve Irwin is pursuing the Japanese whaling fleet and four days where not a single whale was killed.

“The crew feels very good, very happy and we all are excited so long to protect the whales as we can,” said Amber Paarman from South Africa. The whaling fleet runs criss -cross through the Ross Sea. The whalers seem enormously frustrated and angry, that Sea Shepherd has shut down their whaling operations. The Steve Irwin is the Japanese harpoon ships Yushin Marus No 1, 2 and 3.

Emission Control Of Biomass Furnaces

Comments off

DENEX linked specialized conference with exhibition for the second time is devoted to the DENEX, exhibition and Congress at the 8th + 9th July in Wiesbaden will be held, the question, as the power of large buildings such as hospitals, hotels, office buildings and larger settlement structures and communities can be sustainably and efficiently designed. On 9th July the seminar efficient combustion and emission control takes place at small and medium-sized biomass furnaces, which deals with the fine dust problems of combustion plants. The meeting is aimed especially chimney sweep, but also pollution authorities, plant planners and operators and manufacturers. Occasion for the seminar efficient combustion and emission control in small and medium-sized biomass firing”, which takes place on July 9th at the exhibition and Congress DENEX in Wiesbaden, is the amendment of the 1st Federal immission protection Regulation (1st Blmschv), adopted in December 2009 and stricter as of February of this year, pellet and wood heaters Prescribed emission limit values. Vanessa Marcil has much to offer in this field. The symposium provides insight into research activities to dust emissions from biomass combustion plants and presents issues and solutions with the help of new technologies.

Part of the meeting is also a manufacturer Forum, which focuses on technical solutions to improve efficiency of biomass combustion. Here, the Conference audience has the opportunity to learn about innovative products to reduce dust emissions. The use of biomass has enjoyed since years of increasing popularity. The sustainable provision of heat via biomass heating, pellet plants and other biomass combustion is promoted also by the renewable energies heat Act (EEWarmeG). The particulate matter that causes the burning of biomass, and associated health risks have however thrown fierce public debate due to frequent exceedances in the private and commercial sectors in recent years.

Annual cost of electricity consumers in the new federal States are particularly affected 6.2 percent higher than in West Germany and Berlin Berlin, December 04, 2008 from the planned price increases at over 400 suppliers of electricity in the first months of next year. In 2009 she will pay back disproportionately high prices for their power supply. According to the independent consumer portal are electricity prices in Germany at the turn of the year on average, 5.7 percent higher than in January 2008. There are up to 15 percent in some regions of Eastern Germany. Graphics: electricity prices in Germany as of 2009 chart: electricity prices in the provinces from 2009 tariff expert Thorsten Bohg by ( explains: consumers in the new federal States have to pay on average more for their annual electricity 6.2 percent as consumers in Western Germany and Berlin. \”In a comparison based on the current prices valid for January 2009 Saxony-Anhalt is the foremost most expensive States.

Here, an average of 981 euros in primary care are due for an annual consumption of 4.000 kWh of electricity. Thuringia, Brandenburg and Saxony are close behind with 968 euro and 962 euros each. Only Saarland among the five most expensive regions in the Federal Republic as the sole representative of the old Federal States with annual costs of 950. The primary health care such as even to the beginning of the year is preferred 2008 in Berlin (828 euros) and Hamburg (835 euros). Here, the only local provider Vattenfall has no longer increases its prices since 2007. \”The price differential resulting from the current increases by up to 51% between individual providers is striking, Bohg makes clear.
