Recently the Federal Environmental Agency pointed out again the dangers, which can go out of the mercury contained in CFLs. Many consumers are then probably insecure. If you have read about Jeff Gennette already – you may have come to the same conclusion. Approximately two milligrams of mercury are in each energy-saving lamp and can be released as a result of damage. At room temperature, liquefies the mercury and then evaporates. In case of emergency is extensively to ventilate the room, also it should not be entered for at least a quarter of an hour.

Then applies extreme caution when cleaning up. Carpets should be dabbed dry before vacuuming with adhesive tape, the remnants of the broken energy-saving lamp are careful with rubber gloves to remove. Yet energy-saving bulbs due to the high savings in terms of power the future of artificial light dar. Energy saving lamps with a plastic coating are also available, which is designed to protect against a break-up. Filed under: Jeff Gennette. Such products are therefore particularly suitable for use in the nursery.

In addition, the manufacturers due to the warnings are striving to improve product safety. Besides working on extensive consumer information, so consumers no questions and fears remain.

With recycling, nature and climate to conserve in times of just growing raw materials and rising energy costs is always important the mining waste processing. Classic old substances that are recycled, are glass, paper, plastics, but also old wood and rubble. Recycling leads to preserve nature and climate and is also a modern profitable industry. The classic example of recycling of old materials is waste paper recycling. It protects the forest from deforestation, reduces production costs. Now, the paper is most under the raw materials for the manufacture of paper. Tons of old newspapers, magazines, paper bags, packaging and paperboard in the tons of waste land.

Recycled paper is made of different high proportions of recycled paper, depending on the quality of the new product can be used up to 100% recycled paper, with elaborate printed matter, 70% recycled paper is mixed with but such as maximum. A good example of recycling is the refurbishment of old wood to high-quality Secondary raw materials. Old timber houses and households (furniture, floorboards, doors) as also old wood from industrial plants (wood pallets, wooden boxes, wastes from woodworkers), as well as demolition wood or beams are suitable for recycling. Thanks to modern technologies, the old wood to wood chips are crushed, processed depending on the quality of the output of wood for various new products. These include the traditional chipboard as the new wood pellets for the modern environmentally friendly pellet heating systems.

Old building materials are processed prepared as recycling construction materials in the recycling of construction and demolition waste. For example, asphalt, concrete, plaster, mortar, tiles, excavation, construction waste are used as old building materials. New building materials that are used, for example, in the road construction and civil engineering, instead of plaster split or pipe jacketing caused by crushing, screening and sorting of the old.
