Forest Funeral Survey: Six Out Of 10 Germans Want To Be Buried

Forest burial place are convenient, cheaper and environmental. A funeral in the forest is a possible alternative to a conventional cemetery burial for 61 percent of German citizens. You may want to visit Nir Barzilai, M.D. to increase your knowledge. Any second thought about at an early stage to secure a gravesite in a semi-natural woodland cemetery. 38 Percent want to make permanent the tomb forest by buying nature reserve. These are the results of a representative survey among 1,000 respondents in November 2013 by ForestFinance.

Forest grave practical and ecological: special feature of natural forest burial ground: the graves are maintenance-free. Are allowed there are only burials of composting enabled urns, for example wood, be buried directly in the forest floor. Only small memorials or simple plaques indicate the grave sites. As a result, forest burial offer a multiple number of flora and fauna Habitat permanently, because the forests are further preserved at least 99 years. Forest burial ground in the long run clear cheaper: Over two-thirds of Germans find good that this method of burial eliminates the maintenance effort for the descendants according to the survey. With very significant costs, however, compared conventional urns or earth graves in cemeteries. A survey by Stiftung Warentest in 2012 showed for a term maintenance contract for 20 years average cost of 4,900 for an urn grave and 10,300 for an Earth choice grave.

In comparison between about 25,000 and 50,000 euro costs at Earth and URN Tomb over this period. Another result of the survey: the positive attitude of burials in the forest extends through all layers of the population regardless of gender, income, or education. ForestFinance thus met a true trend. Since November, the Bonn party of sustainable forest investments with FinalForest offers”a particularly natural forest cemetery at: FinalForest is not only Burial he protects German jungle. For more information, see and on ForestFinance: the Bonn ForestFinance group manages a total 16,000 hectares of ecological agroforestry and forest in Latin America (Panama, Colombia and Peru), Asia (Viet Nam). She specializes in forest investments, the lucrative return link to environmental and social sustainability. Interested parties can choose between different products at ForestFinance and invest in different models of sustainable tropical forestry: so a separate forest is possible with the “BaumSparVertrag” already from 33 euro per month or one-time 360 euros. The yield forecast is 4% to 9% p.a., see the WaldSparBuch offers 1,000 m2 tropical forest with return guarantee. For investors who wish to replant 10,000 m2 with option on real estate, WoodStockInvest is the right product. CacaoInvest offers an investment in fine cocoa and wood, with possible annual payments already from the second year. GreenAcacia, however, is a forest investment overall short-term and annual payouts. FinalForest is a sustainable range of Waldbestattungs in a German old beech forest.

Biomass Gasification

The thermochemical biomass gasification of small and medium power for the coupled energy deployment the thermochemical biomass gasification of small and medium power for the coupled energy supply is one of the hopefuls in the energy mix of decentralized energy supply from renewable energy sources. Until the technology achieved the final breakthrough of to economic and environmental maturity, however, still some obstacles in the technical development, emissions and energy efficiency, as well as in the social environment must be overcome. The funding organization for renewable energy (fairy) e. V. with its working group for the gasification of biomass is committed for this purpose and organised in cooperation with the REECO GmbH on February 11, 2011 5.

International User Conference for biomass gasification in the framework of the CEP CLEAN ENERGY & PASSIVEHOUSE. The demand for wood gasification plants for generating electricity with coupled renewable heat deployment, especially in the small power range, is still large. At the present time opportunities especially plants with an electrical output of 5 MWe, to reach market maturity. Increasingly among 150 kWel in customer hands can be detected in plants progress. One of the challenges to the developers is to improve procedural solutions which prove already, and to lead to lasting success. These include in particular the increase in the level of automation, reducing heat loss and the increase of electrical efficiency, which is currently around 25 percent.

Emissions of organic pollutants pose a special problem. Must be investigated the development of emissions”, Christian deer Garcia calls the FEE. Should it focus on benzene as a command variable. A benzene-poorer and thus tar poorer gasification is technically feasible.” The reduction of the quantity and harmfulness of carburettor deposits are another field of action. Solution-oriented research and development in closer cooperation with the manufacturers must increasingly to cause the thermochemical biomass gasification for the market. This also applies to the new perspective of renewable methane in the gas network and its key role as a storage medium in the system of renewable energy. This technology should be taken into account duly according to FEE in the energy concept in the Federal Government’s energy research strategy, and the amendment of the renewable energies Act scheduled for 2012. The formation of developers, manufacturers, designers and operators at an industry would facilitate this process. The 5 provides an overview of the State of technical development to marketable investment systems investors and potential users. International User Conference for biomass gasification, which is ENERGY & PASSIVEHOUSE in the Stuttgart Exhibition Centre on February 11, 2011 in the framework of the CEP CLEAN. The Conference deals with national and international developments of biomass gasification plants of small and medium-sized power combined heat cold power on the way to market maturity. The most important goal the event is the support of the market introduction of plant systems. In the exhibition the CEP is dedicated to the complex subject of bio-energy for the first time in 2011 in its own exhibition hall. Especially wood energy and forestry technology, combined heat and power and biogas are in the foreground of this exhibitor area. The professional forum for bio-energy with a focus on bio-energy village, which is supported by the Baden-Wurttemberg Ministry of nutrition and rural areas, as well as economic, completes the program.
