Some Interesting Facts About Solar Energy
There is no known source of energy as widely available as the solar energy on earth. The sun which is some 90 million miles from earth takes less than ten minutes for its rays to travel that great distance to earth. This means that there is an inexhaustible supply of sun rays – an energy source that is very clean.Composting Toilets in Ireland
It seems Irish people love their septic tanks. With over 400,000 septic tanks in a country with a population of 4 million, it is a love affair that has lasted through the ages. There has been no septic tank inspections in Ireland so malfunctioning tanks have gone unchecked. But now, for the first time in Irish history the government are going to check our septic tanks starting in February 2013. The love affair may not be over but is surely tested by this change and the search goes out for alternative technologies that do not need a septic tank. Composting toilets and incinerating toilets are a solution to the problem.How Do You Make Great Compost?

If your company is like most other businesses that use a high volume of industrial cleaner, it prefers to find solutions that it can use long-term, particularly when a cleaner has a specific application (e.g. parts cleaning) that makes its difficult to replace. However, there are certain situations in which continuing to use a parts cleaner solvent – or a general degreaser, for that matter – brings more disadvantages than benefits. Does your company need to replace some its trusted de-greasers? If it encounters the situations below, the answer may be yes.Tips for Choosing Industrial Degreasing Solvents for Long-Term Use
Companies that use a low volume of degreaser can often use any type of degreaser they choose, even one that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has canceled, such as PD-680 (a.k.a mineral spirits). However, companies that use a high volume of degreaser, or reside in a Low Emission Zone (LEZ), where the emission of chemicals that are listed in the Clean Air Act is closely monitored, must use solutions that have a good safety profile to avoid stiff fines from the EPA.When to Use MIL-PRF-680 As a Replacement for PD-680
PD-680 (a.k.a. mineral spirits) is a cleaning agent that companies used until the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) canceled it in 1999. Although PD-680 is not illegal to buy or use, it is illegal to apply in quantities that violate an emission cap.Five Reasons to Use Organic Degreasers for Industrial Cleaning
Decades ago, companies had little choice but to use toxic de-greasers for industrial cleaning. At the time, though, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) had yet to regulate many of the toxic chemicals that it does today; and the effect of the substances on the environment wasn’t entirely known. Today, using toxic solutions for industrial cleaning is problematic because the environmental effects of the solutions are well known, but this is only one reason why companies should replace toxic de-greasing solutions with environmentally preferred solvents or organic solvents.
