Recyceln, reparieren, wiederverwerten: Kreislaufwirtschaft

14 Tonnen Rohstoffe verbrauchen EU-Bürger und fünf Tonnen Abfall produzieren sie jedes Jahr. Um den Abfall zu reduzieren, könnten Produkte oder Materialien, die wiederverwertet, repariert oder recycelt werden können, die Lösung sein. Am Montag (6.7.) debattiert das Plenum einen Bericht, der einen Paradigmenwechsel zur Kreislaufwirtschaft fordert. In einer sogenannten Kreislaufwirtschaft werden Produkte so gestaltet, dass sie besser wiederverwertet werden können.

The EU/ECB/IMF and EU in general must enforce financial rectitude on greece or lose what little reputation & credibility they have
Failing this they must expel greece from the €
If this causes financial chaos in greece well I'm sorry, genuinely so, but it's what they voted for, it's what they've got
Their decision, they must live with its consequences

Two weeks ago, Tech.eu had the opportunity to sit down with Alcatel-Lucent CTO and Bell Labs president Marcus Weldon in its offices in Antwerp, Belgium, for an interesting chat and video interview.

His most interesting comment? He believes the Internet of Things for consumers is mostly a fad, and that the enterprise is really where it's at.

So a face to face meeting instead of videoconferencing - nice to see Lucent and Bell have fair in such communication infrastructure and also have few patents on IoT area's.

never dismiss ANYTHING as a fad, mealy dismiss the rhetoric and hype and see that home sensor networks and better device and technology integration are the end results of this IOT moniker being pushed as a buzzword of today.

But easy to get distracted by people in positions that such services does not suit not fit-in with their business plans, does not mean they are right.

So in short, I totally disagree and amazed that such people were unable to even embrace tried and tested communication's technology from more than 2 decades ago :(

Shameful and given how they viewed smart-phones 10 years or so ago, I see no reason for history to repeat with ignorance and short-sighted poo pooing of ignoring the true technology advances that this will yield and provide.


Still if you focus on the hype and ignore the product then you get such mentalities that hold things back.

EU researchers are developing a new, broad-ranging, cloud-based infrastructure that makes the Internet more accessible for users with special needs. The new ‘ecosystem’ enables people previously excluded from ICT to get help using technology and aims to use their feedback to develop new apps and services.

George H. W. Bush was President from January 20, 1989 until January 20, 1993, the WTC Bombing happened in February 26, 1993. There is a Counter Terrorism and Terrorism link between Bush and Hitler, the suspects are too suspicous.

The Energy Union and the Role of Regions and Cities

The objectives of the conference on 7 July will be: - increase visibility and political impact of Energy aspects (e.g. monopoly dependency, supply guarantee during crisis etc.) among stakeholders at regional and local level; - assess the impact of Energy production etc. for Europe at regional and local level; - exchange and disseminate good practices in energy saving and increase capacity at regional and local level.

Energy planning meeting with focus upon redundancy and resilience across the supply at retail level and supply at consumer level.

Or this just focus upon non consumer related area's and more co-op of country supplies into what could be called a monopoly!

Still let us know how it goes but my suggestion.  how about consumer tariffs were tailored towards lower usage users instead of the usual the more you use the less it costs and mostly due to standing charges, which in reality are costs to expand network for...higher usage users and the wear and tear they cause.

So you could perhaps focus upon that as a way to tackle so many of the area's you outlines, responsible usage should pay, not be taxed to pay for others as it is in every effect currently.


Thoughts +European Union upon that suggestion for the meeting?

General government expenditure in the EU - Government expenditure accounted for 48.1% of GDP in the EU in 2014 - Mainly devoted to social protection

In 2014, total general government expenditure amounted to €6 701 bn in the European Union (EU). This represented almost half (48.1%) of EU GDP in 2014, compared with 48.6% in 2013. In the euro area, the share stood at 49.0% in 2014 (49.4% in 2013). Among EU Member States, general government expenditure varied in 2014 from less than 35% of GDP in Lithuania and Romania to more than 57% in Finland, France and Denmark.

Religion should be separate please as offensive to non-religious people as too otherwise bunch it up like that and show you care more about mass delusion than the environment :(

Beyond that some good and bad signs going by the numbers provided.  

A break down upon what is "social protection" as for many that would be housing, education, Public order and safety, the environment (you know air quality we breath which also relates towards health in a undeniable way).

Then what is general public services and as for economic affairs, think some members would want a refund given results you think.

A handful of euro states say Greek debt relief isn't taboo, but most leaders expect #Tsipras to make deep concessions despite his referendum result. #greececrisis

FRA's range of right to vote infographics for people with disabilities

FRA’s family of five infographics to help raise awareness of the voting rights of people with disabilities have now been made available in many more EU languages. Each infographic targets a different audience and draws on FRA research into the right to political participation of people with disabilities

Would it not be better to place the remit of informing those who are disabled of such information and with that they would be best suited to identify and communicate such information as blind people might have a few points to raise upon this.

Currently it sounds great, depends upon those pulling the information and as disabilities covers a whole spectrum of which many restrict communication's thru physical or mental capacity then, well this falls far short of the standards and level of attention towards detail in addressing such area's.

That is if you are serious about this +European Union and actually breaking down barriers as you term it instead of solidifying them as this does.

Not even translated into all EU languages, seriously I was under the impression you had a `One Europe` vision and yet you do something like this.

Take the approach I outlines, spend your time and our money enforcing it and auditing members to see compliance and be open to feedback.

But this, sorry but it is somewhat an example of barriers on many levels, able or not body wise.
