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 ...

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...

Wind energy: nacelles on the test bench

The journey taken by wind turbines from their preliminary design to their market launch is long. Particularly in the final phase, prototypes have to undergo arduous and intensive practical testing. To shorten this period, in spring 2015 a test rig for nacelles will commence operation in Bremerhaven, Germany. Here the mechanical and electrical components can be tested under accelerated conditions. The BINE-Projektinfo brochure “Fast-track testing of nacelles” (15/2014) presents the test rig.  more...

Storing thermal energy with vacuum and volcanic rock technology

To increase the proportion of heat supply covered by solar thermal energy, greater efficiency is called for in storage tank technology. The BINE Projektinfo brochure “Vacuum tank stores heat” (14/2014) details the development of a storage tank with an enclosure that exhibits very low thermal conductivity. A vacuum between the inner and outer tank and a perlite powder filling in the cavity facilitate favourable insulating values.  more...
