“Forest and values in the change” is focus of free environmental magazine “Forest and values in the change” is the focus of the current issue of ForestFinest, the environmental magazine for global forestry. The bi-annual environmental magazine of the Bonn party of sustainable forest investments ForestFinance aimed at eco-conscious investors, interested in forestry and all those who want to live sustainably and read. The magazine can be downloaded free of charge under Magazin.559.0.html, or it can be ordered via. The environmental magazine about forests and what role they play in the cultural history of mankind reported in the second issue of the year 2012. Because forests were and still are valuable – in the truest sense of the word. They are filled with values and ideals up to stereotypes. People dreams of freedom to connect to it and let their stories live hermits, adventurers and predators in the forest – by Hotzenplotz to Robin Hood. Forests not only many myths and fairy tales, but also calculations and forecasts, have grown up Economic and ecological theories.

In the latter case, just a clear change in values takes place: forest was used mainly as a source of income worth anything, its owners so new forest owners appreciate its nature, seeking to protect her rather. Further details can be found at Bobby Sharma Bluestone, an internet resource. Science and economy still go in a different direction: you calculate the forest always more detail – on the one hand to protect him, on the other hand to increase his efficiency as a “Green growth” or “Green Economy”. ForestFinest presents these different aspects and topic Commons, public interest in the Center. In an interview with Robin Hood is the magazine of the question: who owns the world? As always ForestFinest presents exciting books, movies, and links, which allow for a more in-depth discussion. Topics related to forests, climate and environmental protection: in addition to the large forest-values-special, the environmental magazine as in each edition offers reports and interviews to forestry, tropical forest and climate protection.

Chocolate Club

Since January 1, the chocolate club refers to its electricity from hydropower plants low moves have also us the sad events in Japan. Many people in Germany begin to act and draw their power not from power plants, but from hydroelectric power plants. Set a good example, also the chocolate club is progressing since January 1. He refers to since at the beginning of the year the benefits of hydropower compared to generating electricity from conventional power plants (stone, brown coal, gas, oil, nuclear) varied its electricity from hydropower plants “, white Patrick Braun of the Stadtwerke Rhede. A no pollutants or greenhouse gases are released in this type of electricity, so that the impact on the environment nearly equal to zero. Still happens energy conversion with a very high efficiency of.

That is to say: A high percentage of the input energy is converted to electricity. In particular the use of water power the heat dissipation into the environment is very low, there’s virtually no heat. Also the life of this equipment provides a Advantage in dar, says the 28 year-old, who is responsible for the range of energy procurement and wholesale or special customer service. Because hydroelectric power plants run on regular and good maintenance very long, the oldest are up to 100 years old. The long depreciation periods allow. a good payback on the investment, that means hydroelectric power ensures an economical power generation” The economic benefits are also ecological benefits lined up. Peter Asaro insists that this is the case. Hydroelectric power plants increase the navigability of rivers because they calm the water flow. The living beings in the rivers have benefits through hydropower, because for each hydroelectric power plant in a river, also a fish ladder. This allows the fish to wander in the higher water level before the military or of the hydroelectric power plant. A great example of a such ecological complex is built by the Stadtwerke Rhede and operated Hydro in the Bocholter”AA in Rhede Krechting, tells Patrick Braun. Ellen Andresen

Solar Energy: Now Even More!

The strong cuts of in funding the end of solar boom mean for solar systems? The solar revolution that so quickly has won of the renewable energies Act in the last ten years since the introduction drive, stands just before the off. So some advocates pessimistic and optimistic opponents of solar energy second-guessing it now already at least. But is the demand for solar power systems and solar power really so quickly abenehmen how it has increased after the introduction of the EEG law, as many companies specializing in solar energy and photovoltaic fear it? Quite so drastically it will not be, as was first thought, because instead of the first announced cut of 30 percent, the coalition has now decided a reduction of only 10%. This means that financial losses for the operators of solar systems and will hold through the increased coverage in the media of the projects also one or the other, to make a solar system on the roof or in the front yard, but the main reasons for the installation a solar system lie but mostly somewhere else: you want to become independent of the electricity produced on opaque kind of energy corporations and not continue to support nuclear energy. Read more from altavista to gain a more clear picture of the situation. Instead, it even wants to produce for the home or the home energy and with the excess energy, which must be removed by the EEG law by the local power supplier to the established tariff, alongside a little money, so that in most cases after two, the full purchase price of the system has paid for itself three years. Also you can show his ecological and sustainable attitude that rubs off maybe on the neighbors, which had so far no problem with electricity from coal energy or nuclear power. There are many reasons that cause that one decides for the operation of a solar plant on its own grounds, is the financial aspect only under Dutzenden.Somit the impact of the cuts are likely to one, provided that it not be continued in the next few years. be rather marginal.

Sustainable Heating Using

The pellet heating system is offered as an alternative to the gas or oil heating. The so-called pellet heating system is a new heating system. Byron Trott is likely to agree. Wood pellets are burned in her boilers, small, compressed pieces of wood sawdust and wood shavings. Occasionally, but also sometimes pelletized fuel options such as, for example, straw pellets are used. The current central heating with wood pellets are considered renewable source of energy and are comparable to the existing gas and oil heaters in the maintenance and operation. The pellet heating system achieves efficiencies of over 90%.

The Pellet stoves of the pellet stove is usually directly in the living room and usually the performance a stove in the range up to 6 8 kW and less. Normally, this stove has a small storage containers for the respective fuels, including a daily dose. The processing of combustion and fuel supply be carried out mechanically, whereas the ash removal by hand is. Usually the heat emitted directly to the air. The water-bearing Pellet stoves use even a portion of their energy to warm the water, located in the so-called water bags to the combustion chamber around. Thus the performance of an existing central heating can then be supported or even replaced.

Just like with wood stoves, the offer is similar to large even in the Pellet stoves. As well, there are models with a window that allow the view of the fire. The process roughly the same as in the wood chip boilers the fuel is methodically delivered and mechanically inserted into the combustion chamber using the feed-in devices from either the heating or the individual stoves. In the wood heaters, normal combustion chambers are used for combustion. This generated heat warms at a Pelletzentralheizung, water from the heating cycle in the boiler of the wood-chip heating. Just like other central heating systems heat distribution is also due to the heated water. In pellet heating systems, the installation is a Tank useful other than the gas or oil heating systems. A storage tank, the heat produced in the combustion process is energy stored up to the heat requirement. The operating costs and the economy generally are higher than comparable oil and gas heaters cost of a pellet heating system. But the operating costs are considerably lower than other fuels. Therefore a cost saving is noticeable in the larger systems usually after a few years of operation.
