Background Carrotmob

But what products are especially harmful to climate? How can you avoid climate-conscious consumer of CO2? Transparency creates the campaign with the interactive KonsumCheck on. Here, consumers can put together a virtual shopping cart and find out how much CO2 in the cultivation, production, processing and transportation of products. Hear other arguments on the topic with Robert Thomson. “Background Carrotmob: lure consumers with the carrot car red mobs are global flash mobs for climate protection: A Carrotmob is a Buykott” or anti-boycott, so a party consuming at any given time. You buy what it is anyway necessary in a certain place and does so good, because the bullied store invested a portion of its daily revenue in energy measures, maybe in addition his range to more organic products and thus contributing to the improvement of its carbon footprint. Car red mobs have in such diverse places as a vegetable shop in the Hill, an Edeka market in Hamburg and in the form of the CarrotClubMobs in Hamburg taken place even as a club night in an event location. More information on the blog of the Hamburger Carrotmobber (www.carrotmobHH.de) and Facebook (www.facebook.com/ carrotmobHH). Through co2online and climate seeks protection”the non-profit co2online GmbH (www.co2online.de) advocating for reducing climate-damaging CO2 emissions.

Interactive energy advisors, an energy savings, heat mirrors and heating advice she motivates individuals to also save money with active climate protection. A strong network supports various information campaigns with partners from media, science, economy and politics. The action impulses that trigger the campaigns of co2online, demonstrably contribute to reduce CO2. co2online is funded campaign seeking climate by the Ministry for environment protection”(www.klima-sucht-schutz.de). The campaign informs consumers about climate change and climate change and helps to identify individual savings in the areas of heating, electricity, transport and consumption and use. Projects such as the Climate-Oracle, the climate barometer, the online business directory Council and act”or the Energiesparmeister competition encourage all ages to join in.

Time: September 29, 2011 from 9 22 place: wholemeal bakery Effenberger, slide 18, and Marlowe nature, at the Schlump 5 press representatives are asked to the info event at 12:30, whenever possible we ask for short notice when Kerstin Ballard, who is also known as contact person on site (see contact information below). Program: The shops are open from 9: 00 (Effenberger) or 10: 00 (Marlowe) and the sales counts. As a truly “bestrickendes” event will take place on the lawn area in front of the Marlowe-laden all day, where you can participate also. 12:30: press release at 13: 00 all come together, to celebrate the mob character and get to know in the evening the day dies then nature from 20: 00 live music in the store by Marlowe.

Sustainable Supply

Potentials of biomass new utilisation concepts develop the material and energetic use of biomass reduces the emission of greenhouse gases, diversifying the supply of raw materials and stabilizes them in the long term. Recently Robert Thomson sought to clarify these questions. In the Fraunhofer Innovation Cluster bioenergy in Oberhausen, industry, science, and the land of North Rhine-Westphalia skills combine to develop new utilisation concepts for biomass. Target is to optimize potential collection, transport, storage and litigation. Worldwide incurred locally immense amounts of wet, lignocellulosehaltiger biomass. The spectrum ranges from grass and green cutting on crop residues such as rapeseed straw, processing waste from agriculture and forestry production to bio-waste from private households. Used wet biomass is not intensive.

One is the high water content, which brings a low calorific value (low energy density) with them, as well as elaborately makes transport and storage. Also complicate the inhomogeneity, the ash content and the bad Workability of wet biomass utilizing huge. Bio-gas plants are often not effective for conversion of persistent lignocellulosehaltigen biomass. Other concepts are often not available. Just damp, green biomass has however large potential, as she for example preferred ideal can be coupled in catch crop sequences with food production. Goal of the innovation cluster with the aim to increase the amount of available and usable biomass Fraunhofer UMSICHT initiated the innovation clusters bioenergy. New conversion technologies will be developed within the four-year project period that potential straw benign and moist, lignocellulosehaltiger biomass. The overarching aim of the cluster is to reconcile food production and biomass and to rebuild no use competition.

In this context, the unit will be used to created new sustainable options for the energy and raw material supply and export technologies deployed for a growing market of the technology world. Chemical intermediates develop the work focus on two factions biomass falling continuously and in large quantities. Blade of benign biomass that accumulates at the crop on the field, as well as residue material fractions are from local and regional processing, for example, from food production.

Cheap Energy-saving Potential In Trade And Industry

Workshop “introduction of energy management according to DIN ISO 50001 for industrial & commercial” within the framework of the 5th CEP CLEAN ENERGY & PASSIVEHOUSE 2012 the need to take measures to increase energy efficiency, many companies already caught. Often the required criteria of the economy slowing down but many approaches to energy and cost savings, so to observe a certain reticence and uncertainty in the implementation. An energy management system is a suitable instrument to optimize the use of energy in a company by purchasing energy to economical energy consumption and ecological. The workshop “introduction of energy management according to DIN ISO 50001 for industrial & commercial” at the 29.03.2012 in the Conference exposure 5. CEP CLEAN ENERGY & PASSIVEHOUSE in Stuttgart shows how effective energy management in the enterprise can be introduced. It addressed all relevant levels of the action in the company by management about the levels of the company as controlling and production up to the energy Manager.

The CEP will take place from 29 to 31 March 2012 for the 5th time in the Stuttgart Exhibition Centre. The sectors of trade and industry, trade and services consume approximately 70 percent of total power in Germany, the industry alone, nearly half (45 percent). Therefore, it is important to tap into the energy-saving potential in many cases existing in these sectors. Lack of information and financial constraints are the main reasons that the extensive economic potential is insufficiently used. Industrial and commercial companies primarily use the available funds for the core business and place high demands on the payback on energy efficiency measures. Provinces, Federal Government and European Commission already help to tap the potential of efficiency: for example with the eco-design directive, with programmes in the framework of the BMU climate initiative or with the ERP environmental and energy efficiency program the KfW bank as well as with various information campaigns.
