The BINE Information Service ...

... provides the missing links between research and applications; we report on new materials, systems and components, innovative concepts and methods, and on the knowledge to be gained from testing new technologies in practice. We gather together expertise in one place and ensure that planners, investors and users have up-to-date knowledge – and all this in an independent, experienced and critical manner! We cover a broad range of topics: planning of energy-efficient new buildings; integration of heat recovery, insulation and ventilation technologies; optimisation of energy processes in industry and commercial businesses; use of renewable energy sources; development of new energy concepts ...

Saving energy while warming up snacks

In modern ovens, heated air circulates evenly throughout the oven space. When cooking small quantities of food such as frozen pizza, this creates unnecessarily high energy costs. The BINE-Projektinfo brochure “Creating microclimates in ovens” (10/2014) describes the development of a demonstration oven that can save up to 40% of the energy.  more...

Energy efficient use of domestic waste water

The faeces contained in domestic sewage, so-called black water, can be used for producing biogas. Until now this has been mostly conducted at the end of the sewage channels at the waste water treatment plant. The BINE-Projektinfo brochure “Energy from waste water supplies urban district” (09/2014) presents an alternative concept for the new Jenfelder Au district in Hamburg. Here the individual domestic waste water flows are no longer mixed but are drained separately. This enables the concentrated black water to be utilised in a particularly efficient manner in a decentralised biogas plant. The separately discharged rainwater is used to fill a pond.  more...

Wind power stabilises the electricity grid

A balanced ratio between the production and consumption is constantly required in electricity grids. To compensate for the unavoidable fluctuations and to ensure the grid frequency of 50 Hertz, network operators require a reliable power reserve, known as control reserve. The BINE Projektinfo brochure “Stabilising the grid with wind power” (08/2014) presents a new concept as to how wind farms can also participate in future in bidding for control reserve. This will enable a pool of wind farms to provide part of the balancing power required in the German electricity grid.  more...

Purging the impurities from glass

The production of glass requires high temperatures and consumes a lot of energy. Thanks to a newly developed method, the energy demand can now be lowered by up to 40 % in a central part of special-purpose glass production — the refining process. The BINE-Projektinfo brochure “Energy-saving production of special-purpose glass” (05/2014) introduces the concept. The central component is a crucible made of the high-temperature resistant metal iridium, which can withstand high temperatures without cooling.  more...
