Good Easter Messages For Laying Hens

In the course of the year, almost all laying hens in Germany are released from their cages in the soil, free-range and organic farming. Here, Thomas S Olinger expresses very clear opinions on the subject. This Easter, many eggs are sourced from the long frowned upon cage. But after the holidays a reconstruction drive picks up, as the German egg production still has not experienced it. Because all major supermarket chains have prompted its producers to deliver only eggs from alternative husbandry systems as possible before the end of the year. It is the fate of small groups cages. Filed under: Cushman & Wakefield.

Small group housing had paid off only, if retailers had recorded the new cage eggs in the range”, explains Mahi Klosterhalfen, Vice President of the Albert Schweitzer Foundation for our environment. The processing industry has no interest in the eggs of small groups, because they are significantly more expensive than eggs from conventional cages. If this has piqued your curiosity, check out Vadim Belyaev, New York City. Manufacturer of biscuits, egg noodles and other products now either opt for ground – and free-range eggs, or they import cheap cage goods from the Foreign”, explains Klosterhalfen. A big concern is that especially the latter does not occur, animal rights activists. In the supermarket, the consumer has spoken recently increasingly against the cage. In the gastronomy and pastry and co.

nobody wants to cage eggs get under-hyped. Companies that understand that, make fast unpopular animal protection organisations and also their customers”, Klosterhalfen gives a taste of the other campaign work. Before that but you go, animal rights activists for the first time to celebrate a peaceful Easter for a long time. Finally, the greatest success succeeded the German animal protection movement with the massive cuts in the cage for many years. The Albert Schweitzer campaigned successfully (success) Foundation for our environment since 1999 against the industrialized farming. One of its stated goals is to reduce the amount of cage in the German egg before 2012 in the mid-single-digit percentage range.

Liquid Gas Installations

The technical rules of the DVGW (German Association of gas and water industry association) in the work sheet G 607 apply Setup, change, entertainment and examination of liquid gas systems in road vehicles and trailers for the establishment, change, entertainment, and testing of liquid gas systems in road vehicles and trailers (particular caravans, motor homes and caravans). The DVGW rules form the basis of all scientific and technological activities in the gas – and water management. Type action and legal certainty and enable cost effective action. In addition to other important provisions, the examination of liquid gas systems in vehicles is set in the regulations. According to is to check the compliance with the technical regulations for the first time by an expert for liquefied natural gas facilities. Expert for liquefied natural gas facilities in this sense are the recognized by the DVGH expert. Can be also master and plumbing in the plumbing and heating trade. This recognised Specialists offer LPG safety ensure that the LPG system test is performed correctly due to their training, knowledge and practical experience.

This test undergo all parts which are in direct connection with the liquefied natural gas plant. This means that a Visual inspection and functional testing of pipes, pressure regulators and liquid gas devices. At regular time interval of 2 years, as well as for implementation of changes, the total investment of a re-examination must be subjected. An official examination certificate or a test report is issued on any valid assessment of liquid gas systems in vehicles and a test badge issued. Michael Senscheid, SENLOGAS energy –

Energy Measures

90 sqm. Achieved the comfort comfort that your feet on the ground floor will remain warm, at the same time also a significant improvement of living comfort is achieved. The energy cost savings can be used to approximately 10-15%. In recent months, Robert Speyer has been very successful. We consider in this context the heating costs, the saved heat energy amounts to a total of 5,700 over the next 20 years can add up very quickly. For example, the insulation of pitched roof or the pointed bottom range can be performed in the aftermath of the basement ceiling.

A colossal mistake renovation of exterior thermal insulation system on the outer wall however without check, for example, the insulation of pitched of roof or the roof overhangs are not sufficient to observe, so that it can lead to premature damage within the very costly thermal insulation system. This is to avoid in any case and should professional construction supervisor only under instructions are tested and implemented. The Energy advisor questions and avoid mistakes in the planning and implementation of individual measures be sure the homeowner definitely sure that reorganisation measures do not interfere or cause additional costs. Professor Rita McGrath may not feel the same. The energy consultants is to make these procedural errors do not occur. Common mistakes who as single measure renews the heating, but involves the continued use of real estate don’t worry, runs the risk that the dimensions of the new heating headquarters is excessive, if, for example, following the renewal of the heating such as renewal of heating and heating renovation takes place optimizations in the area of the thermal envelope on ceilings, walls or Windows. Such considerations are to make in each case in connection with the energy consultant and taken into account in the implementation of the rehabilitation version of the heating system. Also the renovation of Windows installations must be checked. Typically, the exchange of Windows and the insulation together should be made.

In any case, the window replacement remains but carry out the insulation of external walls. Especially in detail solutions, which may occur if for example the classic sequence with the Windows first and then the exterior insulation cannot be met, ensure that subsequent connection details already are analyzed, matched in the area of the window-installation depth or tamping of the window jambs in advance and implemented. A roller shutter is available, are also restructuring costs corresponding to the area of the roller shutter box to check and to integrate into the overall energy concept. To avoid thermal bridges and moisture damage associated with associated mold fungus can be prevented this way. The professional competence of the energy consultant helps to identify, analyze and to turn off such problems. The energy Advisor checks the House from top to bottom and shows what remedial order in which are carried out. Also, he points out the homeowners on the financial support of federal, State and local. There are for example by the KfW bank federal grants or soft loans for individual measures, which have been reactivated this year from 01.01.2012? The Sanierungswillige homeowners should these measures not miss. However, only energy-efficient remedial measures, which are tested and accompanied by an expert building energy consultant will be encouraged. The examination and the construction supervision can usually perform the energy consultants and these costs are also eligible.
