This section provides information on project descriptions and publications detailing the best available environmental technology in Germany today. The projects published by Cleaner Production Germany are mainly national case studies on environmental protection which has been integrated into the production process. These projects are sponsored by Germany’s national and regional ministries, Länder-level agencies, or foundations with a governmental mandate. They include, for example, in-depth descriptions of large-scale projects sponsored and verified by Germany’s Environment Ministry (BMU) and Federal Environment Agency (UBA) which demonstrate new ways of avoiding environmental pollution or reducing it significantly. The German Ministry of Education and Research also publishes the results of its research into innovative technologies to protect the environment here.

The section is rounded off by publications (final project reports and research papers) for download and information regarding statutory regulations and specialist events.

The technical options for incorporating and applying antimicrobial substances into and onto cardboard have been demonstrated. Interest in such packaging is particularly high in connection with technical products and export to countries in which extensive climatic stress can be expected. The enhanced hygiene is also advantageous with regard to the European market. Expand…
The dynamic composting process tested represents a suitable system for the degradation of organic materials. The BioSal DYN reactor is capable of the aerobic degradation of kitchen wastes with a high proportion of fruit and vegetable content. The end product is hygienically harmless. Expand…
The exemplary operation of the sequencing-batch-reactor process developed on a semi-industrial scale has been demonstrated using wastewaters from the paper and cellulose industry. Positive results obtained from earlier laboratory investigations have been confirmed, and the practical capability of this process for the minimisation of the sewage load in the Elbe has been demonstrated. Expand…
Using industrial wastewaters from the Czech paper industry, exemplary laboratory analyses have been conducted in biological wastewater treatment installations with a view to achieving the maximum possible reduction of chemically degradable substances. Periodic Sequencing Batch Reactor (SBR) technology has proved to be particularly suitable for this purpose. Expand…
In a paper factory up to 100% waste paper is used for the production of newsprint. The biological waste water treatment plant is extended with a third stage (flotation) in order to reduce the chemical oxygen demand (COD) in the wash water. A goal is to obtain industrial water quality. For the thermal utilization of the residual substances from fiber production and waste water treatment the waste water treatment unit is supplemented by a sludge treatment and drainage facility. Expand…
In comparison with completely stirred installations, the plug flow process has reduced chemical oxygen demand (COD) by 10 – 15%. The treatment of older sludge has resulted in more extensive COD elimination. For denitrification and biological phosphate elimination, this process has also shown clear advantages over conventional practices. Expand…
Ozonisation, peroxone, ozone/UV and hydrogen peroxide treatment processes have been applied to three representative waters for the purposes of drinking water treatment. Results obtained for the degradation of trace materials, the formation of disinfection by-products and the tendency towards reinfection have been compared and documented in a comprehensive tabular compilation. Expand…
In laboratory and semi-industrial tests, the combined oxidation method has proved to be a fundamentally suitable pre-treatment process. Particular strengths have been observed in the removal of impurities from water containing mineral oil hydrocarbons. In consequence, this method is primarily suitable as a standby process for potential surges in the pollution load. Expand…
The effective elimination of bacteria and phosphorous has been achieved using a process combination of precipitation/flocculation/microscreening-microfiltration. Conversely, the use of powdered carbon has not produced any significant removal of adsorbable organic halogen compounds (AOX). Catalytic denitrification has also failed to achieve the desired success. Expand…
