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.

This brochure describes how nanotechnology has been used as the basis for the development of an industrial adhesive system. Energy in the form of microwaves or alternating magnetic fields passes through the components to be joined to the adhesive layer, where it is converted into heat by nanoparticles. This process generates shorter production times with comparatively lower energy consumption. Further information is contained in the German language brochure.

The project partners developed a concept for the construction and operation of a sewage treatment plant in west and northwest Tehran (Iran). This will serve to safeguard the area’s groundwater and drinking water reserves and reduce eutrophication in water bodies and soil. Expand…

The project partners research the effects of (extreme) weather events on everyday passenger traffic. A study illustrates extensive necessity for action in terms of adapting public transport to the climate conditions in order to provide a viable alternative to motorised individual traffic. Besides weatherproofing of stations and stops, further construction and maintenance of bicycle paths is of particular importance. Expand…

Experts predict drought stress as a consequence of climate change for the regional agriculture in Brandenburg. This makes efficient irrigation systems more and more important for local farmers. The project partners investigate the expenses and benefits of various irrigation methods. The collected data is incorporated in a new, Internet-based information system for operative consultation of users. Expand…

When operating the equipment of the pilot scale plant in a factory dealing with oil and fat processing, it became apparent that the selection of the right adsorbent, by means of preliminary tests, has significant importance for sufficient odour minimisation. Theoretical forecasts cannot be sufficiently precise owing to the number of different substances involved. 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.

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…
