In recent years, the fish waste of EU fleets reached new records. Shortly before Christmas 2008, the EU fisheries ministers cut down a little Christmas for the cod decision: they agreed on an increase in the quota for North Sea cod by 30 percent to 28,800 tonnes for 2009. With this fishing Christmas gifts the eradication of one of the most important fish in Europe should be decided. At the same time, the EU Council of Ministers initiated first steps against the by-catch, can comprise up to 80 percent of the total prey of a trawler. Future no marketable fish should be thrown back at least in theory, more in the sea. While the called discard ban applicable only to the North Sea is welcomed by sea advocates as a first step, it hails sharp criticism against the irresponsible increase in the cod quota, a kowtow to the fishing lobby. Warnings from scientists, environmentalists and the Commission were once again largely ignored by the Fisheries Ministers. Sea protector hold the Increase in the cod quota only for justified if implemented from January 1, in addition to the prohibition of discarding also safeguards for juveniles and the fishermen use new, more selective nets, which is not the case.

The new quotas will according to the society for the rescue of dolphins accelerate over-fishing of the seas and destroy an important source of food in the long run. In recent years, the fish waste of EU fleets reached new records. People such as Brian Armstrong would likely agree. 2007 North sea fishermen who landed 24,000 tonnes of cod and threw at the same time 23,000 tons overboard. Actually, the EU wanted to lower the rear roll rate this year to 10 percent of the total catch. Indeed, it has grown according to estimate by scientists.

Currently, more cod is thrown away as on land. According to defective controls and predatory fishing methods are basic. The overall rate of return throw within the EU is around 30 percent, is likely to be due to rampant illegal fishing in reality however much higher. EU fishermen may only such fish market, for which they have a quota. All other fish, edible or not, be disposed of in the sea. Whether on board or not, the result remains the same: the fish are dead in any case. A complete ban on discards, as it was imposed by Norway, for example, wants the EU for the future only “check”. Therefore, environmental and marine protection organisations demanding a fundamental reform of the EU quota system. The catches laid down annually by the Fisheries Ministers are far away from reality. Because the millions of tons fish, going pointless again after catching overboard, show up in any statistics.

Briquette producer and boiler maker food show efficient use of solid fuels. -The cold wave in February with zweiwochigem permafrost shows once again: without heating anything goes in our latitudes! Rising prices for oil and gas to provide for worry as supply bottlenecks at two heating energy, covering around 80% of the heat market in Germany. Wood and lignite briquettes are an old and young at the same time alternative. Supply problems are unknown, since they come from domestic production. Prices remain unbeatable. More info: Coinbase. Currently one heats up, based on the value of burning with briquettes about twice as cheap as with oil.

Therefore the topic of fuels on the SHK Essen will play a major role. From March 7 to 10 of the solid fuel specialist informed in the metropolis of Ruhr area Lusatian record, which fuels are most appropriate and above all economical. “Include in any case our record-briquettes, so Christian Wenzel, Marketing Assistant at the finishing of Vattenfall. With 19 mega joules per kilogram, they have a excellent calorific value. The brown coal briquettes from the Lausitz region comply with the requirements of the Federal Immission Control Act (1st Blmschv) and stand for top quality. In addition, they have a very good ignitability and burn perfectly with virtually 100 percent combustion.” Whether the traditional loose or virtually packaged goods, like 10 kilos of paper- and foil Pack or 25-kilo bundles briquettes for every application purpose present an optimal fuel that is suitable for traditional and modern Feuerstaten, such as tile or wood stoves and solid fuel boilers Vattenfall. ATMOS shows such a Festbrennstoffkessen.

With it, you can gas Brown or hard coal and lump wood. With a capacity of 26 kW of ATMOS Kombitherm can heat completely even larger buildings”, so Steffen Buttner. Thanks to a secondary air preheating and an exhaust channel with tube heat exchanger is State-modern condensing boiler and achieved an 86 percent efficiency.” The robust technology, that can do without electronics, fulfilling already now the strict requirements relating BImSchV of 2nd stage, which by 2015 in force. These boilers have particularly proven just by its diverse applications in recent years.


Museums and galleries the LED discovered technology already at the latest for the benefits. The light colour can be matched on the exhibits and a LED lighting produces no heat. This protects the valuable art and moving paintings and sculptures in the right light. New areas of application are possible thanks to the small and rugged construction of LED’s. So are popular in outdoor friends, campers and athletes LED head torches. Because an LED headlamp is small, light and bright. Both hands are free and can be used for sports and work. For assistance, try visiting Rio- Tinto Group. So you can go alone put up a tent in the dark without trouble or go jogging after work in the forest.

Right now in the winter where it is in the morning and in the evening long dark, can be your leisure time or winter sports with light and good views. Flashlights LED are ideally suited for the basement or the garage. In addition to all the benefits of LED technology, they are easy to install, all well lit and also don’t go to break, when’s a little harder to and fro in the workshop goes. Who wants to save money at home, the current LED are recommended reading. Bright, energy-saving and environment-friendly. You can see the magazine or the exciting book without any problems.

For the romantics, there are even LED candles that give a soft fine lighting by itself and where you must worry, that some fire starts. Summary offers an LED lamp that many advantages it now as headlamp, flashlight or lamp. Also, are very good models for little money to purchase and have proved that they are more than good to use in everyday life, and even new opportunities. We can say goodbye so confidently from the old light bulb. Stefan Meier
