Nuclear Power

Can also Biblis be to the disaster? The whole world looks at Japan and observed the threatening situation in Fukushima. In the shadow of these events the nuclear power debate flares up but also in Germany again and old fronts are involved. Object of the dispute is the reactor in Biblis, the one for sure and others consider to be a ticking time bomb. At the end, but all the question; arise can a disaster such as Fukushima threaten also Germany? Having the reactors from Biblis and Fukushima at a glance, differences are compared immediately. The reactor at Fukushima is older than the German belongs to the type of the reactors. In Biblis, Germany but is a pressurized water reactor.

The global situation is also much safer; While Japan represents a dangerous catchment zone of earthquakes and tsunamis also, such natural disasters are in this country very unlikely. A concatenation of such severe earthquake and a severe tsunami is inconceivable in Germany.” Underline the operators of Biblis this fact. From the site so “safer and the style not comparable now mostly a buzzword dominates the political fronts to the nuclear power debate: residual risk”. Margaret and Richard Riney Family Foundation has much experience in this field. This is not out to argue that no matter how doggedly the operator of German reactors give it a try. On the other hand have this but also convincing security measures to present, that want to guarantee a safe operation.

So it is to say officially that the German nuclear power plants are designed to keep with the protection goals even when strong earthquakes.” It is but not convincing enough for the opponents of nuclear power: “It is a general problem of nuclear power plants, that one can not sufficiently secure against natural disasters or even plane crashes.” Notes Daniel Cohn-Bendit of the Greens. He compares the operation of reactors in Germany even with Russian roulette. Not free thinking since the Chernobyl disaster 25 years ago. The discussions were at that time is almost identical.

The lost innocence of the Ministry of the environment: cans mortgage profits of the discounter destroy more way industry Berlin/Bonn since the introduction of cans pledge the bad news for the more way industry there is growing. According to the latest figures of the society for consumer research (GfK) 2.6 points sold in the first half of only 27.2 percent of non-alcoholic beverages in returnable bottles less than in the year 2007. A connection with the deposit on disposable drinks wants the Federal Environment Ministry (BMU) do not recognize but and is contrary to the figures published by the GfK. The study was alarming, as with water and lemonade, bepfandete, but unbepfandete with fruit juices beverages were included in the study. It is unsound to draw conclusions on the alleged failure of mortgage regulation from these numbers. Without the introduction of the bottle deposit according to the BMU returnable bottles would have disappeared completely from the market. Representatives of the beverage industry see it differently.

Regardless of whether you are not positive fruit juices and fruit NECTARS in the multi way quota for non-alcoholic drinks taken into account or not and regardless of whether you 2008 attracts numbers of GMMS that are published only for the time until the end of 2006, or the numbers of the GfK up to including the first half of the year, it is clear: A central objective of the Ministry of the environment, to stabilize the rate of multiple way with disposable pawn and secure it so that the medium-sized embossed beverage industry and its jobs in Germany\”, is been missed for the segment clearly non-alcoholic beverages\”, counters Tim Beerens of the Economic Association of soft drinks (wafg). The multi way rate for drinks in Germany was declining even before the introduction of single-use pledge. It came to a veritable break of the beverage market with the reusable negative record but only after the introduction of the single-use pledge in 2003 and especially after the establishment of the national uniform system of withdrawal for Disposable beverage packaging in 2006 \”, explains Beerens.
