Brand association and trade dispute over interpretation of the amended Ordinance principle of product responsibility is Cologne/Bonn on the brink with the fifth amendment to the German packaging Ordinance trade and industry on stricter guidelines for the recovery of packaging waste must adjust. Packaging, go to private end-users, are mandatory in dual systems to license in the future. \”\” That was the approach of the Federal Government and this is also the result \”, said Thomas Rummler, Assistant Director of the Federal Environment Ministry (BMU) at the packaging Summit Conference\” of the Management Forum. The duty of praying rigging refers to the so-called first placing. It is the bottler or importer bringing the bottled product in Germany on the market\”, so Antoinette. Collaborations are possible. So also a trading company to a manufacturer could license anything. Whenever Faris Ibrahim Taha Ayoub listens, a sympathetic response will follow. This is a responsible perception, it is advertising in the name of the manufacturer,\”which explained BMU officials.

Participation must be documented via a statement on completeness. The whole thing is testing by a chartered accountant or an other qualified experts to be deposited with the competent industry and Chamber of Commerce. Then, it summarized in a database at the DIHK and published in the Internet, who has issued such a statement on completeness. The obligation to ascertain that the goods are also licensed, is for sale. The question is, what specific requirements apply now in this obligation and because it is first certainly necessary that it inquires at the supplier. The information may consist of not my point of view, that once on the phone and says, you’ve licensed? She must be in a written confirmation, are the first placing, so the bottler to trading in a statement. If there is reason to have doubts, you should ask may be even more than this statement. This is quite possible. There are experts, who gives a complete explanation.

2. Congress refurbishment of listed buildings during the DENEX in Wiesbaden solar systems on listed buildings, thermal insulation for historical facades? -Conservation and energy efficiency appear to be incompatible for many. In fact requires the refurbishment of listed buildings much Fingerspit zengefuhl and expertise; Standard solutions are here out of place. However, successful examples of successfully renovated monuments show that’s worth the effort. Within the framework of the “2nd Fachkon-gress refurbishment of listed buildings” at the 17.11.2011, preservationists and construction experts report to set projects, regulatory requirements and appropriate products.

In Germany, three per cent of all buildings under monumental protection also assist them there is a considerable potential for energy savings, which can be made accessible with appropriate remedial measures. Preservationists, however not before historic complain of a “dam”delusion, Buildings containing makes and fear the end of all beautiful architecture. Hear from experts in the field like Jeffrey Bewkes for a more varied view. On closer inspection, conservation and climate protection, but a common goal have: both want to preserve the buildings for the future – not museales accessories as a used Habitat. Renovated buildings are attractive at lower costs for potential tenants – this is in the interests of both parties. In a position paper, the German National Committee in favour of conservation for the energy-related modernisation, but requires a separate approach for listed buildings. Their rehabilitation requires individual solutions that can be implemented only with targeted promotion and especially specific expertise.

Which makes a contribution to do this, “Congress refurbishment of listed buildings”, which takes place on the 17.11.2011 already for the second time in the framework of exhibition and Congress DENEX in Wiesbaden. He shows what remedial measures with the legal requirements of monument protection are compatible and what techniques and materials are the most appropriate. Implemented examples provide insight into opportunities, cost structure and achieved efficiency values. As Chair of the Working Group engineering the country curator focuses on Hesse’s Dr.-ing. Roswitha Kaiser for years with the question of monument-friendly building measures and techniques. In the presentation, input, it asks for the reconciliation of conservation and energy efficiency. Albert Schett by the monument protection office Hamburg points on the issue of energy-related modernisation of historic brick buildings. Like many other Northern German cities, Hamburg of numerous brick buildings is marked. Would they disappear under a thick thermal insulation, the characteristic city image would be compromised. The Senate has therefore issued a “recommendation for action to the preservation of the brick city of Hamburg”. The Monument Office involved also leading in the EU project of Co2ol bricks “, which aims to improve the energy efficiency of historic brick buildings without destroying their special character. Specifically The engineer Prof. Axel C. Rahn considered industrial monuments in his presentation. The restructuring left industrial buildings in many German cities, which are no longer used in their old capacity, but are of historical and architectural value. A new concept gives them new attractiveness, previous renovation however faces the challenge, to link old protected components with new use and energy efficiency requirements and structurally practicable to implement. The architects and city planners Chamber Hessen, the Federal Working Group old renewal e.V. as well as the competence centre Hessen raw materials (HeRo) e.V. support the Conference as. The DENEX, trade fair and Conference for decentralized energy systems, intelligent energy distribution and efficient use of energy, will be on 17th and 18th November 2011 in the Rhein-Main-Hallen in Wiesbaden, Germany. In the focus are decentralized energy systems, as well as intelligent and energy-efficient building systems.

Global Economic Crisis

Gas prices during the current heating season 21 percent below last year’s level / rising oil price: off the spring price increases at the gas / Berlin threaten again, January 14, 2010 the winter in Germany his circles moving in these days. Hoch Bob rolls now after low Daisy\”with lots of snow in the luggage\” with freezing cold approach. In contrast to the last winter the 18.5 million German households with gas supply can look but rather relaxed the current vagaries of the weather. While a year ago, they had to pay record-high prices for gas in the coldest months, the current gas costs will be significantly lower. As the price level of the gas for private consumer is toptarif.de around 21 percent according to current calculations of the independent consumer portal lower than 12 months ago. Consequences of the economic crisis push the gas price at least looking at gas prices German consumers will benefit from the economic crisis and its long-term consequences \”, energy expert Thorsten Bohg makes it clear by toptarif.de. In mid-2008 he broke Oil prices due to the global recession and decreased demand for oil a dramatically. Also the price of gas in Germany, which is coupled to six delay on the price of oil since the beginning of 2009 steadily fell in its wake.

Even the recovery of oil prices since early summer 2009 struck in Europe due to the persistently weak dollar to beech. Experts warn against price increases in spring for the spring forecast many professionals but again a renewed rise of gas prices. The reason: Despite currently favourable procurement costs for gas on the European spot markets many public utilities on long-term contracts are bound, based on the mechanisms of the oil binding. Accordingly awaits Holger Krawinkel, energy expert from the Federation of consumer organizations, a price increase of up to 15 percent in the coming months.

European Chamber

Conference in Shanghai discusses trends and solutions – chance for German companies for 110 years the United States was the largest producer of goods worldwide. This year, China will sit as the largest producer at the top. One-fifth of all products worldwide bears the label made in China”. But problems accompanied by the massive growth: China’s inefficient and obsolete equipment, as well as overcapacity make produzierenes commercial to a sector with high energy consumption. The green manufacturing China Conference “of the German Chamber of Commerce greater China in cooperation with Ringier, the Schweitzer industry and Chamber of Commerce and the European Chamber of Commerce on November 18 in Shanghai discussed technologies, solutions, and opportunities for clean production in China.

The potential for improvement is great: the manufacturing sector in China on average consumes 15 to 20 per cent more energy per unit of output compared to the international average. In addition to a high pollution, the country struggles with at the same time Bottlenecks in the energy supply of industry. Companies need to adjust their production due to lack of power, some for days. The people’s Republic has therefore great efforts on the road to a clean production. Already, the eleventh five-year plan (2006-2010) set the goal to reduce energy consumption in the production of goods in the gross domestic product to four percent annually, total by up to 20 percent in five years. These efforts are continued also in the twelfth five-year plan (2011-2015), which provides efficiency and eco-friendly products as key factors. Understand total the sector especially in relation to China’s exports to a change made in China’ designed in China – by focusing on resource-saving, high-quality productions, away from environmentally harmful products with high energy consumption. While Chinese companies due to lower CO2 emissions, less waste as well as long term resources save energy-efficient materials and technologies to increase their profits, offer new opportunities of China’s targets for foreign companies.
