We have been advising Wienerberger AG on the further development of its sustainability management for several years. This includes scientific advice on the preparation of the report on non-financial performance in accordance with the Sustainability and Diversity Improvement Act (NaDiVeG) and sustainability reporting in accordance with the GRI standard; this was also the case for the combined Annual and Sustainability Report 2023, which has been available for download on Wienerberger’s website since March 25, 2024.

Chemische Energien (2023)

Lahl, U. (2023): Chemische Energien. In: Hermann, W. (Hrsg.): Antriebswende. Strategien, Positionen und Meinungen zur neuen Mobilität. Molino-Verlag, 53-82 (only in German)

Leider hat sich im Text auf Seite 71 der Fehlerteufel eingeschlichen. Im „Fazit Effizienz“ muss es heißen:
Die Flächeneffizienz ist ein „pro“ für das ICE. Hingegen ist die Antriebseffizienz das zentrale »pro«, was für das BEV spricht.

Abkürzungen:
ICE = Internal Combustion Engine (Pkw mit Verbrennungsmotor)
BEV = Battery Electric Vehicle (Elektroauto mit Batterie)

Plastics Recycling and Hazardous Substances – Risk Cycle

 

February 8,  2024

The article by Prof. Dr. habil. Uwe Lahl and his two co-authors on the subject of “Plastics recycling and hazardous substances – Risk Cycle” (in German: Kunststoffrecycling und gefährliche Stoffe – Risk Cycle) has been published in the proceedings of the Berlin Conference on Waste Management and Energy – “Abfallwirtschaft und Energie 1” – by TK-Verlag.

Referring to current studies and scientific publications, the authors argue that the use of post-consumer recyclates (from packaging or technical products) for the manufacture of products with direct contact to humans should be discontinued for the time being. This applies in particular to children’s toys, food contact material (FCM)/packaging, indoor products and synthetic fibers.

Packaging should rather be collected unmixed in a controlled manner via extended deposit and return systems and sent for high-quality material recycling (closed loop, same product types such as PET bottles to PET bottles, PET trays to PET trays).

In the medium term, the existing separate collection of lightweight packaging could be converted into a dry collection of recyclable materials, for example to include plastics that were previously not recyclable or difficult to recycle (e.g. technical plastic products) and make them available for chemical recycling.

Antriebswende: Chemische Energien (2023)

December 31, 2023

In December 2023, the book “Antriebswende”, edited by Baden-Württemberg’s Minister for Transport Winfried Hermann, was published by the Molino-Verlag (only in German). Our expert for innovative fuels, Uwe Lahl, contributed the chapter on “Chemical energies”.

Unfortunately, a mistake has crept into the text on page 71. “Conclusion on efficiency” should start with:

Die Flächeneffizienz ist ein “pro” für das ICE. Hingegen ist die Antriebseffizienz das zentrale »pro«, was für das BEV spricht.
(The space efficiency is a “pro” for the ICE. Propulsion efficiency, on the other hand, is the key “pro” in favor of the BEV.)

Abbreviations:
ICE = Internal Combustion Engine
BEV = Battery Electric Vehicle

NanoDialog of the Federal Government: Report on the final conference published

December 18, 2023

On June 22 and 23, 2023, international experts came together in Berlin for a two-day conference entitled How the world deals with materials at the nano scale. This conference marked the end of the German government’s NanoDialog. This internationally unique stakeholder dialog on the opportunities and risks of nanotechnologies was initiated by Prof. Dr. habil. Uwe Lahl, Head of the Department of Immission Control and Health, Plant Safety and Transport, Chemical Safety at the Federal Ministry for the Environment, and Matthias Machnig, then State Secretary at the BMU (now BMUV), and successfully continued by the Federal Ministry for the Environment for many years. The conference report has now been published in German and English on the BMUV website. You can download the reports via the links below.
