  1. When buying a home in Ontario, there are several things that can help ensure you make the most of your investment. Choosing the right area is step one, then choosing the right house is step two. There are many up and coming neighbourhoods where home prices are still reasonable, and don’t require you to be driving a Ferrari just to even think about entering the market. I’m looking at you Toronto, with your million-dollar entry fee and overpriced market. IT is best to look for a city outside of this “crazy” zone, somewhere like Brantford or Hamilton, maybe even Clarington or Bowmanville. These cities are not only great, pleasant places to live – but they’re going up in value – FAST! Of course, determining the best place is one thing, and finding the right home is another. Not all houses are created equal, and if you’re not careful you could end up with a real junker that will empty your pockets faster than a trip to the casino ever could. First, you’ll need to choose the right real estate agent, which as an example, in Brantford you could look to someone like The Munir Group, or in Toronto go with someone from Remax. Your agent should be registered with the Real Estate Council of Ontario (RECO) and have a perfect understanding of the market they operate in. This will allow them to feel you out and find the perfect home for you. Once you’ve found some potential homes, get a home inspector to help you make sure the houses are as good as they seem. Pick your inspector wisely as they hold the power to help you make a solid purchase. If you aim to expand your home, choosing a builder before you even buy a property can also be a good way to ensure you make the right choice and save money along the way. Check if any new builds come with a warranty, especially if the home is at risk of workmanship issues, water penetration or structural defects. Buying a home is not an easy task, and with the amount of investment required – you better make sure it’s a good one. This is easier said than done, but with some due diligence and the right people on your team – a beautiful and profitable home is not a white unicorn anymore.
  2. MBP Solutions Go Green Scheme

    MBP is a company that is dedicated to providing expertise in product knowledge, incineration technology and legal compliance, which are the key competences in the energy industry that is rapidly developing. Embracing the current trend where many countries across the world are shifting towards environmental conservation by reducing global warming and minimizing the emission of greenhouse gases, MBP provides a sustainable option, biofuel and bio liquids, which substitute the need for fossil fuels such as diesel. The MBP biofuels and bio liquids are useful in a wide range of applications whether in their pure form or blending them with other fuels. Some of those applications include electricity, road transport, combined heat and power plants (CHP) and heat generation industries. Not only does MBP provide a sustainable alternative to fossil fuels but also helps industries and companies go green. Below is a detailed explanation of how MBP is currently making businesses conduct their production activities in a more eco-friendly manner. The Go Green Scheme For companies that want to go green the first step is for MBP to conduct a desk evaluation of the development of potential based on the existing by-product information provided to enable them conduct an on-site audit. Once the audit is complete, a development of the potentials and economic scenarios enables MBP to offer appropriate by-product solution. For the scheme to be very effective and accomplish the desired results there are three factors that need consideration. 1. Recycle and recover This is a key step in achieving a better environment and sustainable utilization of resources. MBP experts together with manufactures work together to use the by-products and waste to develop a suitable by-product strategy that will optimize the potential of the individual wastes for both short and long term. Prevent, Reuse, Recycle, Recover and Reduced Disposal of waste is the way of thinking, which MBP promotes in its activities ever since the company started, commonly referred to as the circular economy. Examples of MBP applications that promote recycle and recover include; uses for energy recover (bio liquids) anaerobic digestion feedstock (biogas) and composting for the agricultural land (soil improvement). 2. Sustainability Environment protection is a major part of MBP ideological backbone that is why they take pride in identifying products normally considered as waste or by-product and by understanding its potential, they find an optimal application of it. This reduces the waste generated and minimizes the consumption of raw materials since the by-products from MBP often substitute the raw materials. MBP specializes in offering sustainability to these two areas of business Biofuels, bio liquids and bio methane substrates Since 2012 MBP Solutions is among the biofuel companies that supply the market with biofuels and bio liquids and is certified by the EU standards RED (Renewable Energy Directive) and the RSB (Roundtable for Sustainable Biomaterials). These certifications prove that the biofuels, bio liquids and bio methane substrates from MBP are sustainable. Aquaculture Aquaculture is without a doubt a sensitive area where sustainability is crucial hence, the need for MBP to provide fish oils in conformance with ASC (Aquaculture Stewardship Council). The company is currently trying to secure two sustainability standards accreditation namely the IFFO RS Chain of Custody and the MSC Chain of Custody. 3. The circular economy The circular economy involves production, Recycle and Recovery where the system focusses on reducing waste and keeping the materials in use for a longer period. MBP is focusing on recovery and recycling which are in line with the EU agenda to increase resource utilization efficiency in the European society. The EU action plan involves developing appropriate legislation that enables circular economy practices and supporting development and incentives in Europe. MBP shares some of the target with the EU action plan such as getting rid of landfilling and the re-use focus of turning ones’ industry by-products into another industry’s raw material. Conclusion The go green scheme is in accordance with the MBP Solutions purpose, which is to help minimize humanity’s impact on the environment by transforming one industry’s by-products into another’s raw material.
  3. Omega-3 fatty acids are one of the most important nutrients that people should be taking but that most people don't. Years and years of scientific research have determined that omega-3 fatty acids have so many health benefits, and in many cases, like pregnancy, are actually necessary to prevent problems. The human body does not produce its own omega-3 fatty acids so it is an essential nutrient that has to come from the diet. There are two main forms of omega-3 fatty acids that the body utilizes for various biological functions. These are docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA). The problem is that these two forms of omega-3s come from oily fish, and those that eat oily fish do not want to consume such vast amounts of them because many of them are endangered. The solution is plant based omega-3 fatty acid supplements. They give you all the omega-3s you need without harming the fish. Click here for more about omega-3 fatty acids. This link is to authority Health, a website designed to discuss your health while remaining true to natural and organic methods. Why everyone should be taking omega-3 fatty acids Omega-3 fatty acids form part of the most basic unit of our life, the cell. Cells are surrounded by a membrane of fatty substances that keeps the contents of the cell inside but they also have a very active chemical role. Omega-3 fatty acids are incorporated into cell membranes and help to create chemical messages that cells can send to one another, to improve their overall survival and health. The most important of these messages is a pathway involved in inflammation. When cells get injured they cause a reaction with their cell membrane that releases chemical messages called prostaglandins. Prostaglandins help induce the feeling of pain and they help the blood to clot around the injured area. But there are also other prostaglandins that are anti-inflammatory to make sure that the inflammation does not destroy the healthy cells. Omega-3 fatty acids are much more involved in producing the anti-inflammatory prostaglandins. The anti-inflammatory effect they have significantly reduces the chances of developing heart disease and other chronic disorders. They also have other benefits like improving brain function and skin complexion, to name but a few. The problem for the environment So omega-3 fatty acids are really great but the problem is that for everyone to get the right dose, we would have to kill millions of endangered fish, krill and seals. Some environmental organizations report that the demand for krill has moved from 100 000 tons to several million times over the last 5 years because of new technologies to catch them. A large reduction in the krill population can have knock-on effect because it will cause a reduction in all of the species that require krill as a food source. The major species that will suffer are seals, whales and penguins. Some untrustworthy manufacturers have also been known to put seal oil in there supplements because of the large amount they can get from each seal.Other edible sources of omega-3 fatty acids are fish like salmon and tuna which are under immense pressure. So the problem exists where eating the natural sources is harmful to the environment and so are some of the supplements, but there is a solution. The solution for the individual In response to the problem many people would turn to certain omega-3 fatty acids from plants. These are different forms of omega acids namely alpha linoleic acid. These omega-3 acids can be converted into the ones we need by the body, but the process is slow and inefficient. The fortunate thing is that there are manufacturers that care about the environment and choose to make their omega-3 supplements from sustainable sources. That is to say that when choosing an omega 3 supplement, be sure to look at ones that are krill free and seal oil free. Many of the same manufacturers also pursue other environmentally friendly conquests like using completely recyclable packaging and not adding any artificial ingredients to their supplements. This means that by choosing the right supplement you can get all of the benefits of omega-3 fatty acids with none of the harm to the environment.
  4. Solar panels are drastically gaining popularity in Brisbane due to their ability to efficiently conserve energy. However, the process of installation and maintenance is quick complex and therefore it calls for hiring a professional electrician. When hiring an electrician or a solar company in Brisbane,there are several factors which you must put into consideration so as to receive excellent services. These factors include; · Experience levels of the electrician When mishandle solar panels can cause severe damage or get damaged themselves which means that you may end up incurring extra costs. Consequently, before hiring a solar installer, always put primary focus on the skills of the electrician by asking for academic credentials. Electricians who have high levels of experiences tend to provide high quality work and thus reducing any risks of the solar panel getting damaged. · Attitude and communication Communication helps individuals connect and relate with each other well and therefore the solar installer or electrician you decide to hire must be able to clearly explain all factors relating to the repair, maintenance or the installation process. He or she must at the all-time display a positive attitude and passion for his or her work as it plays a major role in the determination of the quality of the services provided. A professional and presentable appearance is always a representation of the quality of work the solar installer will provide. · Charges for the work When it comes to technical work, the charges are always directly proportional to the quality of work offered. However, seeking several electricians helps you in sampling the electrician who provides installation and repair services at affordable prices. Although it is advisable to hire the electrician who provides these services at the cheapest price, you must at all-time pay attention to the quality of work rather than money. · Recommendations Some electrician will provide you with fake credentials which are contrary to the quality of their work. Therefore, it is always wise to seek testimonies from other clients who have already received installation and maintenance services from the electrician as it helps you evaluate the quality of work of the electrician before hiring the electrician. If you are unable to reach to any reference always ask the electrician to connect you to one of his or her previous clients for assurance purposes. · Availability of the electrician Solar installation should be a procedure that takes place within a short period of time. The same applies to maintenance and repairs are they are always abrupt and unexpected. Therefore, when hiring a solar installer or an electrician always ensures that always the electrician is readily available to avoid wasting time and extra costs incurred in the process of looking for a commercial solar installer. There are several firms in Brisbane which put primary in acting as a link between clients and electrician or solar installers. These firms make the process of hiring electricians easy and firms. Moreover, one is assured of receiving high quality installation, repairs and maintenance services at affordable cost. Why Electrical is an example of such firms.
  5. Recycling and the Future of Our Planet

    Anyone that has been following news about the environment and reading up on environmental issues knows one thing; recycling is essential for the future of the Planet Earth. There are myriads of reasons why we should encourage recycling and partner with companies that are involved. Reasons for Recycling 1. Recycling Conserves the Natural Resources Recycling means converting used materials into new products. This aids in lessening the need to consume natural resources by extracting fresh raw materials from the earth via activities such as mining and forestry. You will find more information at MBP Solutions. When we recycle, we save these natural resources for future use and help in conserving natural habitats. In essence: · When we recycle paper and wood, we help to conserve forests. Planting of new trees cannot replace ancient trees and virgin rainforest. Once it is gone, that is it. · Recycled plastic means there is less need for new plastic. Plastic has been known to be detrimental to the environment; therefore, the less of it, the better. · We recycle metal to reduce the need to mine and extract more metal. This is a risky, expensive and damaging venture. · Recycled glass decreases the need to use new raw materials such as sand to create new glass. Reports indicate that supplies of certain types of sand are running dangerously low. 2. Recycling Conserves Energy The production of raw products from raw materials requires a lot of energy. Using recycled materials uses a lot less energy. This is due to the fact that more energy is needed to extract, refine, transport and process the raw materials in readiness for manufacturing. When you are working with industry ready materials, you do not have to go through all these processes. Hence, less energy is used. 3. Recycling Protects the Environment All the extracting, refining and processing of raw materials is not good for our environment. Recycling decreases the need for too much of these activities. Furthermore, with the conservation of energy, there is less emission of greenhouse gases which aids in tackling climate change. 4. Recycling Conserves Ecosystems and Wildlife Since used materials are converted into new products, there is less need to grow or extract new raw materials from the earth. This works to lessen disruptions and damage to the natural ecosystem as there is reduced deforestation and displacement of wild animals. In addition, rivers are not diverted and there is reduced pollution of water, air and soil. Recycling also takes care of the problem of waste. A lot of plastics and other harmful products have been known to end up in our seas causing untold distress therein. 5. Recycling Protects Humankind Many people live in forest communities and some have found themselves without homes because of rampant deforestation. When we cut down trees or even entire forests in search of cheap timber and fuel, we exploit the most vulnerable humans and rob them of their existence. That also goes for diverting and/or polluting rivers leaving them without water. Recycling helps to combat this problem as there is less need to deprive forest communities of their habitat as we search for raw materials. We can reuse what we have. Moreover, plastic waste has already been proven to be bad for the environment and by extension, bad for humans. 6. Recycling Reduces Carbon Emissions Conserving energy means lower carbon emissions. Sourcing and producing new raw materials causes carbon emissions especially because of the amount of energy used. Recycling helps to reduce the amounts of carbon dioxide and other greenhouses gases emitted into the atmosphere. These gases contribute to the climate problem. Finally, recycling creates jobs. The more people become aware and participate in recycling, the more jobs will be created. Raising the target recycling will therefore be a boost for the economy through creation of jobs. While we reduce the amount of waste we produce through recycling, it would be better if we could reduce the amount we use instead.
  6. We know that in order to receive our food, products, and for the equipment used for our home and offices, trucks are a necessity on our roads. It is true no one likes being stuck behind one, but we need them in order to continue with our day to day routines. The carbons that these truck let off is quite substantial when you add up the number of trucks on the road, and there a companies working on solutions to reduce the carbons trucks release. Loadscan, a global supplier of Volume Load Scanners for trucks has been operating out of New Zealand supplying numerous dump truck and other trucking companies that ship raw materials. Mobile load scan technology is currently helping to reduce the number of trucks on the roads by making sure load weights are deadly accurate. The problem in the past was that manual loading scales have meant incorrect load weights have been loaded onto the trucks. This has resulted in many of these trucks either moving with too much cargo onboard thus weighing down the truck and burning more fuel as well as redeliveries for loads that were underweight. However, thanks to the what is known as an LVS (Load Volume Scanner) or (Volume Load Scanner), trucking businesses that are using this tool reduce the number of times their vehicles run over the course of the year. Load scan devices take a 3D image of the materials that have been loaded onto a truck. It uses scanning technology to retrieve the 3D volumetric size and weight of the materials. Results are instantaneous, so there is no waiting time for the truck driver or foreman onsite responsible for the accurate delivery of the cargo. According to Loadscan, the Load Volume Scanner has an accuracy rate that is either -1% or +1% off on occasion. Now, this is a remarkably accurate measurement and leaves very little room for error. Therefore, if the load is underweight, immediately the truck can be topped up and scanned again. Scanning is quick, so truckers can rescan within seconds - unlike traditional truckload scales whereby the truck would need to be unloaded and the load remeasured’ a process that could potentially take hours. With the loads being so accurate, there is no need for redelivery of materials because undersupply is not an issue. This solves a huge issue with the release of carbon emissions because of the elimination of additional journeys made by trucks because the original truckload was underweight means that the trucking company’s trucks are in action far less than before. If you are an environmental officer, work within the supply chain industry, or if you have connections/influence over businesses that are using trucks to ship raw materials, then speak to them about using Load Volume Scanner systems. By adopting this system, they will be able to reduce their company’s carbon footprint and the company’s overall productivity. The system is lightweight, easy to use, and it requires very little calibration. With loading being made super fast with this device, the trucking company will also speed up their delivery times by cutting out the time needed to use manual truck loading methods.
  7. Travelling is probably the best thing to have it as an occupation. It opens up the horizon of our mind, i.e., our thinking ability and carves a permanent mark of the whole world that comes out of the various experiences and wisdom the traveller gained while witnessing diverse culture, human and nature. In the time of rapid climate changes and pollution increase in a petrifying level, in our opinion, a traveller or a tourist should always follow some rules and regulations to keep the nature safe so that the places he visits get a touch of healing and as a whole the human being can stretch the limit of its own existence in the world a bit. For the last few years numerous tourists, mainly from the northern hemisphere, flock to the tropical bliss Turks and Caicos in between December to April. Because of its tropical sun, many tourists find their winter vacation homes in Turks and Caicos these days. This small island country consists of two groups of islands lying on the south-eastern periphery of The Bahamas, of which they form a physical part, and north of the island of Hispaniola.For most of the year, Turks and Caicos experiences Atlantic trade winds moderated by the warm Antilles Current. Yet the climate is remarkably dry with a mean rainfall and evaporation and unfavourable to farming and the recharge of groundwater.The islands include eight large cays (keys) and numerous smaller cays, islets, reefs, banks, and rocks. This makes this land home for various underwater species. Beaches like Smith’s Reef is famous for its diverse and very rich coral. Salt Cay is the place where the traveller witnesses the whales. Being an island country surrounded by the Atlantic, the country’s import is covered majorly with the fish, lobsters and conchs. All these things point to a single statement that the ecology of this place should be maintained with high precaution as this little country is totally dependent upon the natural resources which are none but various species themselves. With the increase of temperature, certain climate changes will occur. Among them are the most dangerous things like extremity in temperature, frequent floods, droughts, tropical storms etc. Turks and Caicos is a part of the Small Islands Developing States (SIDS). In the case of Global Green House Gas Emissions, SIDS contributes a meagre amount, i.e., less than 1% but bears formidable amount of impacts created by the global climate changes. For an example, let us cite the case of Hurricane Ivan in 2004 which caused a direct loss of 900 million US$ in Grenada and that is more than twice the country’s GDP. It resulted in damaging of 90% of the hotel stock in that place. To deal with all these, along with the growing tourism industry, the Department of Environment and Maritime Affairs (DEMA) of Turks and Caicos decreed to ensure certain things that the country’s natural resources are being used sustainably, to protect and promote biodiversity and economic prosperity through a sustainable fisheries industry, environmentally sustainable development, a Protected Areas system and improved Maritime Affairs. They set some humble regulations, naming it etiquette, for the tourists to follow while visiting the country’s luring spots. We are mentioning all of the points made by DEMA in the hope that all of the tourists will follow these in order to protect the nature. Environmental Rulesand Etiquettes to Consider during Your Stay Guided Tours: ·Tourists must report to the DEMA if they notice any of the captain's anchors on the coral reefs or seagrass beds. ·Make it confirmed that the conch you are devouring has not come from the national park. Coastal Regulations: ·If you want to have a bonfire or any other kind of party on the beach, it is mandatory to take permission from DEMA. ·Never remove any kind of corals, sand, shells and wildlife, whether dead or alive, from the Protected Areas. This thing is entirely illegal. · If an individual wants to export more than three queen conch shells, he must apply for a CITES (Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species) export permit through DEMA. The process will take at least 4-5 business days to be accomplished. ·The ‘swim zone’ is the 300 feet of the shore. Please swim within this range. ·Fishing in the National Parks on in Natural Reserves is totally prohibited. ·Do not forget to remove all kind of trash you are carrying. Remember of the wind that might help your removed trash to get into the water. So be cautious about it. · Please keep yourself comfortable on the walkways. Try to avoid being on the sand dunes to watch out for iguana burrows on the uninhabited cays. ·Never even try to feed the fish, birds or reptiles. · Always use the biodegradable lotion and take the time for all lotions to soak into your skin before you get into the ocean because suntan lotions are toxic for the reefs. ·Never even think of standing or hitting or kicking the coral. Probably you have already known that coral is a living animal so never hurt them. ·Please try to avoid kicking sand with your fins when snorkelling so that fine particles do not smother and choke living coral. ·If you want to do some fishing, do not worry. Apply through DEMA. · Skiing is encouraged only in the ski zones. So apparatus involved in this sports like jet skis or hovercrafts are permitted only in demarcated ski zones. ·Want to visit the sanctuary? Again, you need a written permission from DEMA.
  8. Amazing tips on how to live a smart life!

    The world that we live in does not come with unlimited resources. Every single human being has to make sure that they do their part in making sure that we are helping our environment and that we are using our natural resources in a smart way.

  12. Whether you have a large or small web shop: many web shops are faced with orders from abroad. Are you going to send cheap parcel to Germany? Then there are a number of things that you have to take into account. Because your packages often travel long distances, you want to avoid delays and missing people. No problem sending is so nice. That is why it is useful to be prepared as well as possible. Read this checklist quickly and you can immediately start working with worldwide packages. 1. Check in advance what you can and cannot send You may not ship some products, or only under certain conditions. Think for example of alcoholic drinks or flammable liquids. Therefore, check in advance what is and is not allowed. The shipping conditions differ per country. Do you want to know which these are? Check the list of prohibited products online. 2. Keep in mind import duties and regulations Within country, the same legislation generally applies, but it may differ outside country. That is why it is good to have your conditions available in multiple languages. Are you going to ship internationally, outside the country? Then your customer will have to pay import duties in some cases. The amount depends on the type of product. Always send a clear and honest invoice. Paste the shipping label on your foreign package shipment. 3. Use the right packaging A package that is sent abroad will cover quite a few kilometers. That is why it is important that your package can take a beating. Always use sturdy packaging that fits well and protects the product. Sell your smaller products? Then it is useful to pack it in a larger box. This will prevent your package from being miss-sorted or damaged. Because you want to prevent damage at all times. 4. Check the address on the shipping label Addresses can be built up slightly differently from other countries than domestic addresses. This differs per country. To check this, there is a handy tool available that can save you a lot of time. Also check well in advance whether a PO Box address has been specified. Include a telephone number and e-mail address of your customer on the package. In many cases contact is also made with the recipient by the foreign transported about the status of the shipment. 5. Offer a clear and easy return solution When sending packages worldwide, it is smart to offer a good return solution. This way you can remove any doubts from your customer and offer extra service. The country return service is a service that is possible in a large number of countries. But to avail these don’t forget to do product comparison before shipping.
  13. These days, businesses need to find ways to make themselves as green as possible. It's necessary to keep the air clean and ensure your company is not adding to air pollutants. When you work for an industrial company or within an industrial industry, this can be a challenge and it can be expensive. One of the methods used within the industrial world to ensure that the air stays clean is through regenerative thermal oxidizers. These are pieces of industrial equipment that absorb exhaust gases and uses ceramic materials to then absorb the heat and break down the pollutants in the exhaust gas. This type of equipment is key for industries that have to deal with any kind of exhaust system that releases gases into the air. That gas has to go somewhere, but it is filled with pollutants. Oxidizers help. Some of the industries that can benefit from using this type of equipment include: painting booths, paper mills and printing companies. In some countries, certain types of business are required to use this equipment to ensure any kind of gas that is vented into the air are cleaned and not a risk to the surrounding community. The other term for trying to reduce the carbon footprint of your company on the world is environmental remediation. This involves cleaning air, soil and water around companies that produce toxins. If it's found that chemicals have been introduced into the environment around those businesses, there are tools and methods that can eliminate the toxins within soil and materials around the company. These days, the environment is more important than ever. It is better understood in this day and age how just one company producing air pollutants can contaminate not just the air, but the surrounding soil and water, too. All of this can end up inside homes or other buildings, potentially miles away from where the business is actually set up and running. There are now regulations which monitor the amount of pollutants allowed into the air and certain industries are even more regulated than others, with legal fines and other legal actions taken against businesses that are found in violation of these rules. Of course, equipment that is effective and can clean the air properly and meet the government environmental standards can also be expensive. There is a world out there that sell used oxidizing equipment, including thermal oxidizers. This can help reduce the cost of cleaning the air and reducing the air pollutants released by the company. If you run an industrial business and have to deal with exhaust systems that put gases into the air, you need to make sure your company is not violating these rules. Remediation is the way to go and offers solutions that protect the environment and community so that your business can focus on what you do rather than having to worry about what's happening to the environment. Being a responsible business owner means using the latest technology to protect the environment around your property.
  14. How test drinking water for metals

    Water is one of the basic necessities of life, we may live without everything else. But without water, no life would be possible on this earth. But now due to so much pollution in our environment, even the water which is pumped from deep under the earth is also not pure. Now there are many metals added to the drinking water, and by metals, it is really meant real metal pores in our drinking water. Well obviously these metals are not added by us, but somehow they get mixed with our water system. So if we need to know that which metals are being present then we need to perform testing water for metals. Metals in Water The water which is being used from the old pipelines, then they are really rusty, and when water is passed through them, then many Lead pores are also added to them. And if we constantly drink lead mixed water then it could result in many health issues like kidney failure. And if any woman is pregnant then she could result in premature birth or even miscarriage. In the same way, Arsenic could be also added to the water by the same way, and this could result in more dangerous health risks like Lungs Cancer, or even heart failure or major heart attack. Plus you might have heard about hard water, well basically hard water is calcium mixed water. Purification Process And drinking this water may not cause some serious health problems but still, it is quite dangerous to use heavy water for a longer time period. And all these metals are surely due to the bad water supply system of UK. And that is why still there are several water companies in the UK that supply water to several homes and buildings. So there is constantly testing water for metals, in order to ensure the safety of citizens of UK. Now it is not just about some germs or microorganisms inside water that could be removed by boiling water at high temperature and low pressure. But now there are metal components inside it, which can be only removed by using filters of various types.
  15. Hospitals produce a lot of rubbish clearance, especially given all the disposable waste removal they have! Therefore, is it a really good sign that hospitals are beginning to take their social obligations of keeping their rubbish clearance out of landfills seriously. Many hospitals around the world are actively developing plans to divert their rubbish clearance from landfills and use more sustainable practices of rubbish clearance. One of the most important steps for hospitals is to consciously make an effort to purchase products that are 100% biodegradable. Luckily, many supplies used at hospitals such as scrubs and various bedside supplies are made from cellulose fibres that are already biodegradable. Of course, if these biodegradable products are still sent to the landfill, it defeats the purpose of them being biodegradable. Thus, many hospital administrators are finding ways to get these biodegradable waste streams to an appropriate rubbish clearance processor that can handle biodegradable waste removal outside a landfill. Hospitals can also take a look at packaging and food containers. For example, otherwise recyclable coffee cups can't be recycled if they have a non-biodegradable plastic liner. However, if the hospitals switch to using cardboard cups lined with corn starch or sugar cane materials, they become fully biodegradable. Since hospitals do such a high volume of buying, purchasing decisions like this could make a significant difference in the amount of rubbish clearance that could be biodegraded and kept out of landfills. The biggest solid waste stream for most hospitals is PAPER! If you've even been hospitalized, or been to the hospital with a family member, you'll have some idea of why! There always seems to be stacks of information on paper and forms to sign for every thing you do in a hospital. You may even be tempted to bring your portable file with you you get handed so much paper. In one survey of California hospitals, it was found that 53.8 percent of all solid waste was paper. Paper that goes to landfills rots because it gets compacted down into dense areas with no oxygen. This rotting paper produces methane gas that escapes into the atmosphere and contributes heavily to the greenhouse effect. However, if that same paper can be taken to a recycling center, it can be repurposed into other paper products without it producing all that methane. Therefore, hospitals should strive to do two things: 1. Try to go paperless whenever possible. 2. Send their paper rubbish clearance to paper recycling centres rather than landfills. It would be a more than fifty percent improvement in the social responsibility to our society to become more sustainable and keep their rubbish removal out of the landfills if hospitals would do these two things with regards to their paper waste. Here's another exiting waste management change happening at some hospitals that hopefull will catch on. Currently, five hospitals in the Netherlands have installed their own anaerobic digesters, called the Pharmafilter system. It anaerobically digests, in an oxygen free environment, all their biodegradable rubbish clearance, including their hazardous biowaste, like bloody bandages and used syringes. The waste removal is transferred away from individual hospital wards through sewer pipes. It is then shredded and treated. The liquid waste is then separated from the solid waste. The liquid waste is where the infections bacteria and discarded medicines reside. This liquid is then filtered and treated chemically on the hospital grounds so it is no longer contains any hazardous materials. As the solid rubbish clearance is anaerobically digested, it produces a methane gas that can be captured and converted to energy. This powers the hospitals and all the leftover energy from this ingenious process is fed into the power grid for the nation. It seems too that hospitals might benefit from partnering with private rubbish clearance companies that already purposefully divert as much of the waste they pick up away from the landfills. Local councils simply haven't caught up with the latest technologies for recycling waste and end up taking biodegradable rubbish clearance to the landfills. Clearabee is a rubbish clearance company in the UK that seems particularly poised to partner with hospitals that want to divert their rubbish away from landfills. Clearabee already does this with other industries. For example, they partner with landlords to take the rubbish clearance removed from flats and other rentals after a tenant leaves to places that can recycle or reuse most of it. Clearabee also partners with restaurants to keep their food waste out of landfills. It seems only the natural next step, if they haven't done so already, to partner with hospitals.
