Little powerhouse with high extraction performance

TEKA developed a little powerhouse with high extraction performance, the “dustoo”. The mobile high vacuum extraction unit can be used wherever a local separation of dry dusts is required. It is especially suitable for the use at a welding gun with an integrated extraction (torch extraction). The system extracts dusts directly where they are produced and filters substances that are dangerous to health out of the air. An effective occupational safety for staff members is provided. The system is equipped with two high-pressure turbines providing a high extraction performance with a pressure of ...


Is the energy-saving lamp good for the environment?

The energy saving bulb is in terms of energy demand, a big improvement concerning the light bulb. Therefore, the energy saving lamp has a very good image. Nowadays, the question, "the energy saving light bulbs are really good for the environment?", has arisen. The fact that the energy saving lamp can not start without mercury, make them to a hazard at home. Mercury is the most toxic non-radioactive element. If the lamp breaks and the mercury escapes, it is immediately absorbed by the body. The consequences are devastating, damage of the immune system and various other organs. Moreov ...


Watt was yesterday – Lumen and Kelvin are the new main features!

From now on, incandescent and halogen bulbs may be sold only with the minimum energy class C. Thus, the end of the incandescent bulb was pronounced. For consumers, this mean rethinking. Consumers should not select new lamps for wattage but after Lumen and Kelvin. Lumen are critical for the brightness and Kelvin for the light color. The higher the lumen, the higher the brightness. Usually the 25 watt incandescent bulb is generating 250lm, while 60 watt is radiating 600lm. In comparison, 7 watt LED Bulb is gernerating 500lm. The color of light that is perceived as warm- or coldwhite, is given ...


Economic Impact of Protected Areas in Europe

In Europe, many different tools are used for protecting biodiversity and natural areas, including the Natura 2000 network, the Habitats Directive and the European Charter for Sustainable Tourism in Protected Areas. To the European business sector, however, the potential economic value of Natural and National parks is little known. More and more companies are looking for ways to contribute to biodiversity protection. The European Business & Biodiversity Campaign and EUROPARC Federation are offering new aspects to the debate how protected areas can be maintained, and how societies can re-con ...


Go for Gold, or Green…? Biodiversity Check First Step towards Gold in the Biodiversity Discipline

Bonn/London, 14 August 2012 – Using environment management systems such as ISO 14001 or EMAS, the Check examines which business units are involved, outlines fields of action and shows how companies can secure sustainable business models and generate competitive advantages. So far, almost thirty companies performed the Biodiversity Check. Daimler AG for example, carried out a Biodiversity Check in 2011 at the Sindelfingen plant. In doing so, it recognised the economic importance of intact ecosystems and has set the course towards an environmentally friendly business practice. Having carried o ...


The End of the Incandescent Bulb!

From 1st September 2012, it has come – any incandescent bulbs will be banned. From now on, incandescent and halogen bulbs may be sold only with the minimum energy C class. Thus, the end of the incandescent bulbs was pronounced. Another regulation is enter into force on 1st September 2016 – At this particular time, all light bulbs must achieve the minimum energy class B. Through that regulation, the halogen lamp is no longer an option here! Exceptions are clear halogen lamps with R7s and G9 bases. Although these halogen lamps comply only with the energy-efficiency class C, they may continue to ...


Rio – let’s do our best!

A city that usually makes the hearts of samba and Carnival friends beat faster has in the past weeks and months accelerated the pulse rate of those who care about the issues of sustainability and the future of our planet. The world has its eyes on Rio, or rather the UN Conference Rio+20, because it is expecting decisive signs of and actions to fight against hunger, injustice, climate change, loss of biodiversity and global environmental pollution. Even though the mood may be pessimistic and this is based on the assumptions that the outputs aren’t concrete enough and no binding regulations hav ...


Innovative fan system saves 20 percent energy: Ziehl-Abegg sets a new global standard in energy efficiency matters

ZAplus stands for an axial fan from the FE2owlet series from Ziehl-Abegg placed in a compact unit made of high-strength composite material in which the motor and controller are integrated. Along with the perfectly matched combination of efficient individual elements, the composite material also permits new shapes, which have a positive selective influence on the airflow. ZAplus in continuous duty saves an average of 150 euros per year according to current measurements. Simultaneously, the new development is quieter or facilitates significant air reserves. The ZAplus System provides device man ...


Ways out of the Ecological Crisis - The First European Biodiversity Summit in Germany offers solutions to businesses

Climate change, dwindling resources, the loss of biological diversity and the increasing number of biodiversity related demands of various stakeholders require effective strategies for the preservation of the livelihoods of future generations. In four plenary meetings pioneering views on climate change, the dependence of industry on biodiversity, as well as the valuation of ecosystem services within industry will be demonstrated. In the plenary sessions, the future of a European renewable energy system and the sustainable economic development within the meaning of the Rio + 20 Conference will ...


How science can save our seas, and more

The bluefin tuna is a truly majestic fish: known as the tiger of the sea, it can grow to more than half a tonne, reach speeds of up to 70km/hour, and migrate over thousands of kilometres. But for many people, it is the fish’s rich, creamy red flesh that makes it so exceptional: in June, a 342kg bluefin tuna fetched a record 32.49 million yen (or €295,000) at a Tsukiji market auction in Tokyo. Demand for the lucrative fish is driving it to extinction: despite global initiatives to limit the hunting, bluefin tuna populations have fallen an estimated 80% since 1970. How can we save the bluefin? ...


Ethical seafood project nominated for excellence

SEAT aims to enhance the trade of farmed seafood (aquaculture) between the EU and Asia. Farmed seafood in South and Southeast Asia has become an important driver for economic growth in the region. “We’re importing a huge amount of seafood, which traditionally came from our own seas, and more recently comes from fishing agreements with other countries, or from farmed fish, often from developing countries in Asia” explains David Little, the SEAT project coordinator and senior researcher at University of Stirling. In Europe, a premium is typically placed on high quality products that come from a ...


A fascination with organic electronics – the 2011 Deutscher Zukunftspreis awarded to three scientists from Dresden

The three scientists succeeded in adapting organic semiconductors for use in a wide range of products, thereby creating the basis for innovative applications in displays, lighting, and photovoltaics. Organic semiconductors could soon open up whole new possibilities for use in electronics that are impossible with today's conventional crystalline materials such as silicon. The big advantage of organic semiconductors is how they make it relatively easy and inexpensive to process electronic products with unusual properties, such as transistors, light emitting diodes, or solar cells: as thin, ...


Probing Questions & In-Depth Answers

For the first time, a scientist from Austria will be actively involved in an expedition of the Integrated Ocean Drilling Program (IODP). This multi-national research programme is helping to achieve a new understanding of physical and biological processes of the Earth by intensively exploring the sea-floor. Austria’s annual contribution to this programme is financed by the Austrian Science Fund FWF together with the Austrian Academy of Sciences. The first-time participation of an Austrian in a drilling expedition of the research vessel JOIDES Resolution represents a highlight of this contributi ...
