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 ...

Tenants influence efficiency of refurbishments

With refurbishments the actual consumption frequently exceeds the requirement values calculated in advance. Scientists are examining in detail what causes this “rebound effect” in a housing estate in Karlsruhe. The BINE-Projektinfo brochure “Taking user behaviour into account with refurbishments” (02/2015) describes the initial results of the resident surveys and the technical cause analysis.  more...

Pulling crystals for semiconductor technology

Crystalline semiconductor components form the core of many modern communication technologies such as computers and mobile phones. They are produced during a multi-day pulling process that uses considerable energy. The BINE-Projektinfo brochure “Efficient production of monocrystalline semiconductors” (01/2015) presents a new method for producing gallium arsenide crystals. Instead of growing individual crystals as was previously the case, nine crystals are now grown in parallel from the melt. This reduces the specific energy consumption for the production by two thirds.  more...

Generating biogas in composting plants

Composting plants can do more than just convert the content of organic waste containers into nutrient-rich soil. If the facilities are supplemented with an additional biogas stage, energy can also be generated there. To achieve this, the organic waste is pre-pressed and the liquid generated is digested in digesters. The BINE-Projektinfo brochure “Organic waste: combining compost and biogas” (17/2014) presents this process for generating biogas along with the initial practical experiences. The developers have paid particular attention to achieving an economical process that is not susceptible to faults.  more...

Energy-saving supply of fresh air for school students

To use as little energy as possible while meeting the energy requirements with renewables – this was the client’s aim when constructing a primary school near Berlin. The BINE-Projektinfo brochure “Fresh air for new school buildings” (16/2014) describes the concept they used for the ventilation, lighting and energy generation. The use of natural processes for ventilating and cooling the building are important aspects in this regard.  more...
