Mission Climate Protection

Exemplary: Daimler AG operates the plant in Rastatt with a Berlin, July 20, 2011. Daimler AG is progressing on climate to lead by example. An innovative energy concept has been implemented in the Mercedes-Benz plant in Rastatt. The environmentally friendly geothermal plant of the plant uses two heat pumps. It serves the groundwater as a source of energy, which is fed into the heat pump by extraction wells. To heat the heat pump drawing power from the ground water, to cool the energy supplied to the groundwater. This climate-friendly system work saves around 5 million kilowatt hours of energy and about 800 tonnes of CO2.

Energy efficient and sustainable use this is in regard to the current EU directives on climate not only for consumers, but also for companies of great importance. Heat pumps operate up to 75 percent with renewable energy from the environment: soil, air or water. Compared with fossil heaters, heat pump has proven about the greatest CO2 savings potential. This is a study to the CO2 emissions comparison of the (Department of energy economy and application technology) if TU Munich. An efficient heat pump saves already today around half of CO2 compared to a fossil heating”, so Karl-Heinz Stawiarski, Managing Director of the German heat pump Association The use of heat pumps therefore makes an important contribution to the implementation of the EUKlimaschutzziele. Because in addition to the reduction of CO2 emissions, the heat pump works very efficiently. The goal of improving energy efficiency by 20 percent, that Europe has set itself for 2020, to be achieved by the new proposal for a directive. Our proposal aims, to make our use of energy in everyday life more efficient and a more effective control of their energy consumption to help citizens, public institutions and the industry, which should ultimately lead to a lower energy bill”, explained Gunther Oettinger, Commissioner responsible for energy matters, a press release of June 22, 2011. That is so Heat pump not only with regard to the reduction of CO2 emissions and the integration of free environmental energy, but also in regard to the energy consumption that is more environmentally friendly than conventional heating systems.

Sustainable Natural Materials As An Alternative To PVC Plastic Cards

BioPolymere have got what it takes – immediately are debit cards from renewable raw materials of card industry available! Plastic cards, manufactured most like debit cards, loyalty cards, access cards, etc. with distance from polyvinyl chloride (PVC). This is mainly due to the favorable price and good processability. PVC can be but just expensive to dispose. PVC was in recent decades in the public more in disrepute: the raw material of vinyl chloride is carcinogenic. The combustion produces hydrochloric acid and highly toxic dioxin.

Still, PVC stabilization often contains heavy metals. Environmental protection organisations recommend therefore the phase-out of PVC. Chlorine-based products such as PVC burden on human health and the environment. For long-lasting PVC building products such as pipes, Windows, etc. nationwide take-back systems for the plastics processing industry have been introduced to reduce the environmental damage caused by the municipal waste disposal. Not such collection systems you fall into approximately 19 Billion annually manufactured plastic cards.

It is therefore to be expected that also check cards from PVC someday be banned because this a complex factional disposal, must be treated with a special combustion or an elaborate pure recycling process, after its service life has expired. Plastic cards are no longer to be thinking away products in customer acquisition and loyalty. But must you fall in the production of the annual 19 billion plastic cards still on fossil raw materials. Hold it up front: 19 billion plastic cards, which corresponds to 1,632 times the height of Mount Everest or 14.440 kilometers of road, if a card is on a streak stacked after the other. This requires 93.480 tons of PVC per year approximately. Why are 80% of all plastic cards made so still still PVC? There are no more meaningful alternatives? But there is already the possibility of renewable raw materials to draw on, a possible route to a greener future. BioKarten out Renewable credit card made from renewable resources offer numerous advantages: 85% use of renewable raw materials can be individually printed PVC plastic cards free of PVC, heavy metals, toxic substances in industrial composting facilities CO2 neutral thermally recycled biodegradable strengthening brand always scarce oil resources, climate change, global temperature rise, increasing CO2 emissions, environmental impact before the background objectionable, etc., the PASM engineering GmbH shows awareness of these new sustainable cards applications. Applications are among others customer cards, season tickets, loyalty cards, bonus cards, access cards, room cards, membership cards, warranty cards, promotional cards, gift cards and many others… Strengthen your brand presence – look to the future and shape the world of tomorrow already today!


45 percent more energy yield by tracking Horb a.N., May 19, 2008. The trade fair Intersolar in Munich (27-29 May 2009), DEGERenergie presented among other things his new, heavy-duty tracking systems of the type of DEGERtraker 3000HD and 5000HD. The interest on the new models is already now extremely large, reports on the manufacturer. DEGERenergie is world market leader in the field of tracking systems for solar systems. Its new generation of show after insertion systems DEGERtraker 3000HD and 5000HD, the DEGERenergie with Munich brings, is specially designed for use in high wind zones. The designation HD\”stands for heavy duty\” (high load).

With up to 25 m2 of module area the model of DEGERtraker 3000HD is designed for a capacity between 2,500 and 3,800 WP. The model of DEGERtraker 5000HD brings a power of 4,000 and 6,400 WP at up to 40 square feet of module area. For systems that reach a up to 45 percent more energy efficiency than static systems. For both Models are available between 3.3 and 5.5 meters long for open spaces mounting or for installation on buildings pole versions. Both models are designed for applications between 25 and 60 degrees of latitude. Optionally it can be used between the Equator and the 90th longitude. High interest among the audience of the interest of our clients to the new systems is extremely high\”, explains the founder and CEO of DEGERenergie, Artur Deger. Genera which made just in Madrid to end, especially the visitors of the trade fair showed downright enthusiastic about the models.

\”This not least because they can be mounted on buildings.\” Since early 2008, around 25 percent higher remuneration of feed-in applies to building-integrated solar systems in Spain. The design tool developed by DEGERenergie especially for the heavy-duty systems ensures that solar systems thus tipped withstand even extreme wind loads. So, already holds the basic configuration Wind speeds up to 170 km/h easily got a generously dimensioned reserve protects the equipment against stronger peak gusts.
