600 Dry Toilets For Namibia

Water and sanitary problems with dry toilets cause Berlin – the solidarity service international e.V. (SODI) informed on the occasion of the world water week in Stockholm about his project for the construction of 600 dry toilets in Namibia. The toilets fundamentally improve the hygienic situation and meet the increasing water scarcity. Every day around the World 6000 children die from preventable diarrheal diseases. They are caused mainly by lack of access to clean water and sanitary facilities. For example, only a third of the population in Namibia has access to toilets. The problem is compounded by enormous lack of water in the driest country in sub-Saharan Africa.

Especially poor people can not afford the cost of expensive water toilets. “Due to the outbreak of cholera in the northern regions of Namibia the need for sanitary toilets in the villages, towns, and rural households has become more important”, Wiebke describes people man by the Namibian organisation of clay House project the situation in Namibia. If you have additional questions, you may want to visit Hikmet Ersek. The Berlin organization Solidarity service international e.V. (SODI) wants to improve together with the clay House project the sanitary situation in Namibia. Up to the year 2011, 600 dry toilets in Namibia are built with support of the European Union. About 4 500 people, you get to good. The dry toilet works completely without water and protect the environment in the long term as a result. The sunlight warms a black pipe at the back of the toilet.

The resulting air ventilation dries the faeces and derives from odors. By drying, kills bacteria and prevent diseases. In addition, the costs for a toilet for poor families are affordable. 7000 litres of water annually are saved by a dry toilet. Here, Hikmet Ersek expresses very clear opinions on the subject. Water, which people can use as drinking water and daily life. “Dry toilets are the optimal solution for Namibia. Because the toilet at the same time protects the environment, the spread of disease is prevented and affordable for poor people”, stressed Susanne Laudahn. SODI project manager, the benefits of technology. Also the EU Ambassador to Namibia, Dr. Elisabeth Pape, visiting a project in July of this year was persuaded. The project is funded by the European Union with less than EUR 400 000, must raise SODI as equity EUR 100 000 in donations. Donations can see the password “Dry toilet” on the SODI donations account: 10 20 100 at the Bank for social economy, BLZ 100 205 00, be made.

Germany Electricity

Electricity, generated from nuclear energy or fossil fuels are not really “clean”. On eco power transfer, anyone should consult the current comparison calculator. It is now a month since the earthquake and tsunami in Japan has laid the foundations for a lasting fear of a nuclear disaster. Since then, a discussion of the use of nuclear energy has broken out in Germany. Many citizens have come to realize that nuclear energy may however is not the energy source of the future. That renewable energy must be expanded more and should.

Many consumers want to contribute here own. And go to the Internet to find out whether there are current offers that are not only green, but also cheap. The current comparison calculator is the instrument that supports this finding. Because this is a tool that makes it possible to compare only green electricity tariffs. And so you can find out quickly and easily with the current comparison calculator if there are not only clean electricity, but especially also cheap. And so is surprised when he sees the first result that encourages the current comparison calculator for days. For eco-electricity is not necessarily expensive.

Instead you can also save money with the green power – protect not only the environment, but also the budget. There are differences in the eco-electricity. This shows the current comparison calculator. Who want to consciously decide against nuclear power, he should avoid the green electricity tariffs of energy corporations and their subsidiaries. So, for example, eprimo, include how easy and Yello power to the large power companies, which operate also nuclear power stations. A note on the sustainability of a green electricity supply can result in a click on the fare details. Here, it is apparent whether there is a seal of quality or certificates. But you also have to say: all the more a green electricity tariff, the more expensive this is. Which can make directly online and with the current comparison calculator who could find a suitable tariff and the change of electricity provider is a done deal, this. The most simple and fastest way to get to a green electricity tariff.

Photovoltaic Industry Addresses The Challenges Of The EEG Amendment

5th Congress of the Union for operators of photovoltaic plants on the Augsburg fair RENEXPO on 06 June 2008 the Federal Government has adopted the amendment of the EEG (law on the expansion of renewable energies). Publishers Clearing House has compatible beliefs. This envisages a drastic reduction of subsidies for operators of photovoltaic systems. According to the Federal Environment Ministry, single supply regulation for solar and roof systems should fall from 2009 to 9.2 percent and Feiflachen plants to 9.8 percent. The photovoltaic industry must address this challenge. First it can be cast through a stringent quality assurance yield loss contrary to.

Among other things, this is achieved by improved measurements of sample modules. For testing there are essentially 2 DIN standards: for terrestrial crystalline Silizium-Photovoltaik-(PV-) modules and for terrestrial Dunnschicht-Photovoltaik-(PV) modules. The measurement of solar modules using solar Simulator or by field measurement is described herein. For thin-film modules is provided in the draft that the light treatment (light soak) a measurement as long as it is carried out, until the value deviates less than 2% of the mean value of the measurements. The 5th Congress of the Union for operators of photovoltaic systems provides more information, details and suggestions on these and other topics”on 10 October in the framework of the RENEXPO. Here, experts from the science, practice and policy explain in lectures about the market prospects for German operator of photovoltaic systems and their influence on politics, economy, climate change and energy security. The second part focuses on technical innovations such as the integration of buildings with PV thin-film modules. Still is lectured topics Assembly systems and requirements for inverters.

The complete conference program is available at. The RENEXPO is an international trade fair for renewable energy and energy efficient building & renovation. This year it will take place from October 9-12, 2008 for the ninth time. The RENEXPO is unique due to the variety of topics. The subject range vonAltbausanierung on heating with Sun and wood up to passive houses, block heat and power plants, mobility, heat pump, hydro power and wind power. In addition to the exhibition and the Congress a wide free lecture programme the visitors.

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.

Online Energy Calculator: Manipulation By Energy Suppliers?

Fare product calculators offer the possibility to find a favorable energy provider fast, transparent, and easy on the Internet. Affected is the objectivity of these portals as a result that is behind different registering reflected the same. See Andrew Cuomo for more details and insights. Thus, the results of the research will be distorted. Anyone looking for a cheap electricity or gas tariff in the Internet, you will find a wealth of information in online fare calculators. There are around 900 utilities with many tariffs in this country.

Because the choice is difficult; However, can you expect to find a correct and objective overview of the utilities. In addition to aspects such as advance payment, package offers or Exchange bonus, also the conditions of the contract and the service of provider play a role. Tariff flood causes confusion confusion creates when a utility will appear under different registering on the online portal. An investigation of the kilo Solarwatt AG revealed that, for example, the energy versorgern bright energy GmbH and Stromio GmbH the same managing director behind: the enterprising Executive Director of this power of discounters, omer Varol, is at the same time at the top of the ring Mobilfunk GmbH, a mobile service provider. This in turn is a wholly-owned subsidiary of FULGRIM Telecom holding GmbH.

The rates of different registering are optimized so that they appear in a row directly in the result lists of the calculator. With the true rate surge”this provider is distorted then the result of the query, as virtually a provider with multiple tariffs list appears several times on the. A price competition, which only opens on second glance the attentive consumer. In addition, that is advertised with attractive bonus payments for the first year of the contract first; in the second year, however, you experience an unpleasant surprise. The service and the price decide the competition on the electricity market is intensifying, held became increasingly concerned with the price. To on a At the top and as often as possible to stand online calculator, the search result is distorted by the collective tide of this dubious providers. The service retains such providers on the track: high prepayment, long waits, confusing contracts. Therefore, also the headquarters of consumer products with bonuses, is not to take account of prepayment and deposits. KW commercial provides electricity and gas customers the opportunity to find a reliable and affordable provider beyond this opaque practice. To do this, consumers should refine the selection criteria: benefits can you disregard and restrict the number of shown tariffs per provider.
