By Matthias Okoro

Seminar paper from the yr 2012 within the topic Environmental Sciences, grade: A, college of Nigeria (CENTER FOR ENVIRONMENTAL administration AND CONTROL), direction: ENVIRONMENTAL administration AND keep watch over, language: English, summary: Soil and water are important for our existence, well-being and over-all health. however the waste generated from human actions should be unsafe, poisonous or even deadly to those components a result of excessive strength it has to infect them. The harmful and poisonous components of waste from forms of human institutions comprising infectious, bio-medical and radio-active fabric represent a grave probability, if those are allowed to get combined with soil and water whilst it's not correctly disposed. Its propensity to motivate development of varied pathogen and vectors and its skill to infect different nonhazardous/ non-toxic municipal waste jeopardizes the efforts undertaken for total municipal waste management.
it is because study mild took us to Ugwuaji unload website situated in Enugu-Port Harcourt convey manner. the aim is to assemble soil and water pattern for laboratory research so that it will aid decipher the influence of waste sell off within the soil and water by means of checking out the focus of other different types of heavy metals within the soil and microbial load of the water.

Raptors of New Mexico - download pdf or read online

By Jean-Luc E. Cartron

No publication has ever prior to particularly serious about the birds of prey of latest Mexico. either Florence Bailey (1928) and J. Stokley Ligon (1961) released volumes at the birds of recent Mexico, yet their insurance of raptors was once slightly restricted. within the resulting years loads of new info has been gathered on those effective hunters' distribution, ecology, and conservation, together with in New Mexico.

The booklet starts off with a historical past of the observe "raptor." The order of Raptatores, or Raptores, used to be first used to categorise birds of prey within the early 19th century, derived from the Latin notice raptor, one that seizes through strength. The textual content then contains the writings of thirty-seven contributing authors who relate their observations on those regal species.

For instance, Joe Truett recounts the next within the bankruptcy at the Swainson's Hawk:

"From spring to fall every year on the Jornada Caves within the Jornada del Muerto, Swainson's hawks gather day-by-day to capture bats. The bats go out the caves--actually lava tubes--near sunset. The hawks swoop in, grab bats from the air, and devour them at the wing."

Originally from France, Jean-Luc Cartron has lived and labored on a number of continents, discovering his ardour within the wide-open areas of latest Mexico. He turned occupied with the birds of prey and has studied their ecology and conservation for almost twenty years.

Raptors of recent Mexico will offer readers with a entire therapy of all hawks, eagles, kites, vultures, falcons, and owls breeding or wintering in New Mexico, or just migrating during the kingdom. This landmark learn is usually fantastically illustrated with greater than 600 pictures, together with the paintings of a couple of hundred photographers, and greater than twenty species distribution maps.

ABOUT THE CONTRIBUTORS
Jean-Luc E. Cartron (M.D., 1991, college of Paris Val de Marne, France; and Ph.D., 1995, Biology, college of latest Mexico) is a study assistant professor at UNM and the director of the Drylands Institute New Mexico place of work. He has written quite a few articles on raptor ecology and is the editor of Biodiversity, Ecosystems, and Conservation in Northern Mexico.

Download e-book for iPad: Die Auswirkung von Recycling auf die Öko-Bilanz von by Adela Jurja,Sebastian Zellhofer

By Adela Jurja,Sebastian Zellhofer

Diplomarbeit aus dem Jahr 2015 im Fachbereich Umweltwissenschaften, be aware: 1, , Veranstaltung: Ökologie und Energiewirtschaft, Sprache: Deutsch, summary: AUFGABENSTELLUNG

Wie belasten PV-Module die Umwelt? Einen großen Einfluss dabei hat die Technologie der Fertigung von PV-Modulen. Eine Verbesserung in diesem Bereich würde zu einer günstigeren Ökobilanz führen und dadurch die meist relativ hohen Emissionswerte der Photovoltaik im Vergleich zu anderen erneuerbaren Energien vermindern.
Berechnungen zu fabric- und Energieersparnis durch Einsatz von Recycling und deren Auswirkungen auf die Ökobilanz von mono- und polykristallinen Modulen sollen in dieser Diplomarbeit durchgeführt werden.

REALISIERUNG

Die Aufgabenstellung der Diplomarbeit wurde durch die Verfolgung folgender Ziele realisiert:

- Erfassung der wichtigsten Emissionsströme entlang der gesamten Wertschöpfungskette dargestellt durch Berechnungen der CO2-Äquivalente
- Vergleich von Klimabilanzen von PV-Modulen mit und ohne Recycling-Materialien

Alle Berechnungen sind mit GEMIS 4.9 und PV-Sol erfolgt. Die analysierten mono- und polykristallinen Module wurden in Deutschland hergestellt und sind in Wien in Betrieb. Die erwartete Lebensdauer beträgt 30 Jahre.

ERGEBNISSE: Monokristallines PV-Modul

CO2-Fußabdruck ohne Recycling: 56,63 g CO2/kWh
CO2-Fußabdruck mit 50% Recyclinganteil: 52,33 g CO2/kWh
Ersparnis in 30 Jahren: ca. 33 kg CO2 professional Modul

Der CO2-Fußabdruck des monokristallinen Moduls sinkt durch den Einsatz von jeweils 50 % Recycling-Materialien (Glas, Aluminium und Silizium) um 7,6 % im Vergleich zu PV-Module ohne Recycling-Materialien. Dabei fällt der größte Anteil der Treibhausgasemissionen bei der Herstellung der Wafers an.

ERGEBNISSE: Polykristallines PV-Modul

CO2-Fußabdruck ohne Recycling: 48,05 g CO2/kWh
CO2-Fußabdruck mit 50% Recyclinganteil: 43,04 g CO2/kWh
Ersparnis in 30 Jahren: ca. 35 kg CO2 professional Modul

Der CO2-Fußabdruck des polykristallinen Moduls sinkt durch den Einsatz von jeweils 50 % Recycling-Materialien (Glas, Aluminium und Silizium) um eight % im Vergleich zu PV-Module ohne Recycling-Materialien. Dabei fällt der größte Anteil der Treibhausgasemissionen auch hier bei der Herstellung der Wafers an.

Die Ersparnis bezieht sich jeweils auf den Vergleich von Modulen mit und ohne Recycling. Der Bezug auf die Veränderungen im Strom-Energiemix während der Lebensdauer wurde nicht berücksichtigt.
