Bio Must Be

HAWITA group from Vechta teaches new substrate line of gardeners and consumers on the origin should make use of organic substrates. Only when the Earth comes from regional production, bio at all makes sense. With this philosophy, the HAWITA brings group from Vechta a wide range with organic substrates on the market for the first time. The range includes for example soils for perennials, herbs and flowers. You will be presented the audience on this year’s international plant fair (IPM) from 24 to 27 January in Essen. The organic soils come exclusively from Germany and Eastern Europe and ecologically produced, assured Simon Tabeling group, managing partner of HAWITA.

To transport the components of organic substrates by the world is finally no more environmentally sound and sustainable, like buying an organic Apple from New Zealand”, compares t. Range for specialists the HAWITA group has increased demand for organic substrates into account. So far have so wide a range of only a few providers in the professional area. Our customers should get top quality for every application for bio products”Managing Director emphasises. HAWITA has in Germany both own peat deposits as well as their own clay deposits and a bark humus production. The substrates are manufactured at the place of raw and packaged, avoids unnecessary intermediate transport.

The manufacturer supplies from the production site to the customer. With the development of a deposit system for planters, HAWITA has already set standards several years ago in terms of sustainability. Peat remains irreplaceable the use of peat as a renewable resource in a bio product makes sense according to Managing Director t, when it comes to restrict the high pH or salt levels of other aggregates and to establish a coordinated mix of substrate for specific application purposes. At the bog bedding plants, peat is virtually irreplaceable. And also for the Plant propagation is an important additive, reminding t. All organic soils are certified professionals as well as for the hobby gardener completely according to the EU regulation 834 / 2007 and can therefore be used in the organic gardening. This HAWITA used only approved organic fertilizer in the production. The single substrate aggregate must be also approved and are fermented separately from conventional production and monitored.

WELTEC Builds 1-megawatt Bio Gas Plant In Hungary

WELTEC BIOPOWER has begun with the construction of a biogas plant in Szeged, Southern Hungary, in April. WELTEC BIOPOWER has begun with the construction of a biogas plant in Szeged, Southern Hungary, in April. Clients and operators is the Zoldforras Energia, a subsidiary of the Hungarian power supplier DeMSZ. The 1-megawatt plant, in which two block heat a600 kilowatts per hour work is to generate electricity and heat from the end of 2011 on the basis of Schweingulle and corn silage. The substrates are supplied by farmers from the vicinity of the site. Farmers remove the fermentation residue resulting from the biogas production, and bring them as fertilizer on their fields. With the generated heat office buildings are air-conditioned.

The WELTEC biogas plant has two full 3000 cubic feet stainless steel fermenter with double membrane roof. Each fermenter has thus once again a gas buffer capacity of the 1016 cubic meters. In addition, an external gas storage with a capacity of 650 cubic meters is installed on the premises (see chart). The aim is There, the twice electricity price, which is paid during the day, to make optimal use. If you are not convinced, visit CAGR. Therefore the biogas is collected at night in the fermenter enter store and the external gas storage, and during the day the two cogeneration plants full load run.

Zoldforras Energia WELTEC awarded supported by the Hungarian sales partner Inwatech, also, because WELTEC facilities adjacent to the high yield of electricity and heat guarantee an economical energy self-consumption. Hungary wants to electricity generation based on renewable energies consistently voranbrin-gen and promotes the construction of biogas plants, inter alia through one-time grants. With the help of subsidies, the share of renewables in energy consumption is expected to increase to 13 per cent up to the year 2020 of according to German Hungarian Chamber of industry and trade. Currently running 12 biogas plants in the country. 40 more are planned or already under construction. It is intended to expand the capacity for biogas plants on a total of about 32 megawatts, what then would be equivalent to a funfprozentigen share of the biogas energy production from renewable by 2020. The Majority of projects is included in supported investments in livestock in attack-related. As a barrier to investment the long payback periods turned out to be here so far. Therefore, among other things the Einspeisevergu-obligations are checked. Biogas is still equivalent to natural gas in the remuneration, will be given priority in the network in the future however. Hungary already has a very good network of natural gas and is well positioned for the global trend to use natural and bio gas to generate electricity.

There is the opportunity to make environmentally friendly choices when purchasing fish restaurateurs and consumers. Healthy oceans are not only essential for a vibrant Habitat sea, but also for the livelihoods around the world. Never weighed a stronger pressure than today the result of economic and ecological impact on our oceans: because for years, the number of consumers rises, fish consumption increased only Germany in the last 10 years by 40%. Symantha Rodriguez: the source for more info. Therefore a number of sustainable projects and measures were initiated around the world: in addition to quotas, and protection of spawning areas and prohibition of discard (discarding of by-catch), in particular the certification programs for consumers of fish counter and freezer are interesting. MSC – the most famous seal is an independent, global, self-sustaining organization, whose Aims, amounts and genetic structure of fish stocks so to receive that reproduction is not affected. Just when fish many customers questioning the quality”, event planner Kitty van Aarlen Berlin catering select white. As organic caterer we use MSC products in addition to fish from aquaculture often, as the flexible supply quantities to cover large events.” Currently, 10% of the fish offered in Germany is already from MSC certified fisheries.

Sustainable Tool

Select catering the organic caterer from Berlin plans the first guests who were at the buffet environmentally friendly, were talking and noticed nothing. Only the sixth or seventh Conference participants has been attention to the light brown plates, with which the live chefs select catering spent the soup: the guests were light brown and baked from rye edible dish in his hand. Conferences, trade fairs and events interact with to a large extent on our environment, so tons of water and electricity are consumed locally and in kitchens. To know more about this subject visit Symantha Rodriguez. There is need for action: morally, economically. So why use the opportunities, offering fresh, innovative ideas in the area of sustainability?

Just one example: at least an overseas flight, a cold storage plant in Rotterdam or Hamburg, and a refrigerated truck is needed for a piece of lamb meat from New Zealand, only then comes our fridge and stove in the kitchen. Global to local? Easy to say, if you looked after only three or four times in the quarter with more than 250 guests an event, but why should small medium-sized enterprises make no beginning, and collaborate with other small medium-sized suppliers from the uckermark near? The meat comes already three days later on the table fresh and slaughtered on order.
