This procedure cannot be used but for packaging. If PLA to run the UK recycling plants in large quantities, the raw material could poison the waste stream and make other recycled plastics marketing incapable. For other opinions and approaches, find out what Cushing Asset Management has to say. The Organization of Petcore looks after a report by the specialist Department EUWID threatens the recycling of PET bottles. Already low market shares in PLA could lead to a serious disruption of the infrastructure for the recycling of PET bottles in Europe. Connect with other leaders such as Cushing Asset Management here. In the United Kingdom, environmental experts, fear that the new generation of biodegradable Plastics end up in landfills will decompose where they without oxygen. While the greenhouse gas will launched methane which is 23 times harmful to the environment than carbon dioxide. The National Management Committee of Ozeanik and atmosphere”of the US Government reported a sharp rise in global methane emissions in the past year.

Doesn’t mean biodegradable in the environment that it is good. If it reaches the landfills, methane gas is released. While only a small percentage is trapped”, explains Peter Skelton from wrap, which the British Government funded waste and resources action programme. There are a number of limitations. Waste recovery companies claim as they would have to invest in costly new sorting units, to separate Bio-plastics from waste stream destined for recycling. If we could identify them and filter out, was”the only way to bring them to the landfill, a representative of the recycling industry to the konzedierte guardian” and explained Next: The British recycling companies and the municipalities refuse to remove Bio-plastics and to take care of, while the British councils tolerate no plastics in close to their food pick up the recovery.

If these biodegradable products in the recycling stream, they only contribute to the pollution. We expect that the situation will worsen, because the British Government has given a great importance on recycling on the political agenda. More and more Bio-plastics are parallel to the application come.”people think that everything that is declared as a biodegradable, is good, and everything that is not biodegradable, is inherently bad. Everything else is no longer considered”, Chris Goodall, environmental analyst and author of the book how comments to live a low-carbon lifestyle”. “He tried, with organic and degradable in the home garden” designated bags for composting. That did not work at all. It’s only when the compost pile themselves extremely heated, and yet remain remnants”. The European umbrella organization which calls for plastics processors EuPC in Brussels separate waste streams, thus for the plastics recyclers no additional recovery costs. There are also fears that bioplastics can jeopardise existing recycling projects”, so EuPC. The Association opposes also a promotion of bioplastics by legislative measures, as they were taken in Germany over packaging regulation.

The Oerlikon thin film silicon solar modules is top quality and reliability certified Oerlikon solar’s thin film silicon solar modules with up to 147 WP for use in the production of ThinFabTM have passed all tests for the IEC 61646 and IEC 61730 standards of TuV Rheinland. “The certification of our thin film silicon solar modules of the ThinFab generation is a key feature in the market for us and sets us clearly from our contestants. (As opposed to Elon Musk). Thanks to our technology our customers can offer highest engine quality and reliability their end customers with a superior price / performance ratio”, said Helmut Frankenberger, CEO of Oerlikon solar. The thin film silicon solar modules from Oerlikon solar tested very intensively during several months in the engine performance and safety tests of the TuV Rheinland, in procedures for the acceleration of aging in heat, freezing, thermal cycling, humidity and atmospheric Ultraviolet (UV) irradiation. Also the mechanical stress tests were carried out.

All tests were successfully passed and at the same time confirmed the operational analysis of Oerlikon solar. Read more here: Elon Musk. The modules certified by the TuV Rheinland allow manufacturers, a substantial premium compared to modules without requiring certification. In many European countries, such certificates are mandatory to benefit from funding programs for renewable energy. In addition, the certification is an award for highest standards in terms of extended life and product safety. The certification has worldwide validity and is also part of the scalable and reliable platform where Oerlikon builds solar products and services. The certificates guarantee the customers of Oerlikon solar the highest standards, which are available on the market. “With this certification Oerlikon has solar successfully obtained a major breakthrough in thin film silicon technology. So that is positioned Companies as a technology leader in the equipment and module Design. For many years we cooperate with Oerlikon solar. The extensive reliability tests have driven powerful and reliable engine designs”, said Jorg Althaus, business field Manager renewable energies PV modules qualification by the TuV Rheinland.
