“Mineral water is defamed”

Heino Hövelmann sells water from the last Stone Age and Sinalco lemonade. He wants to attract new target groups – and is upset about the glorification of tap water. Ein water with “pleasant mineralization, harmonious, balanced, very reserved in its own taste, a pleasant companion to wine and coffee.” This is how it sounds when Heino Hövelmann is the sommelier and describes the advantages of the mineral fountains in the Rheinaue nature reserve. From a depth of 200 to 300 meters, they supply the raw material for the family business that fills mineral water, the lemonade classic Sinalco and other soft drinks in the north of Duisburg. The precious water is pumped from the wells into stainless steel tanks via pipes laid underground. A dozen of them are on the premises in the Walsum dis...

Raising awareness of food # 1

Against the background of climate change, the Rhine-Main area urgently needs to deal with the issue of drinking water supply. This also applies to consumers. PThe message could hardly have come more extensively: Last Friday, when all of Hessen was only sweating because the temperatures kept climbing above 30 degrees, the first peak in drinking water consumption in the Rhine-Main region was reached this year . Last year it was even a little higher on a day at the end of June.For the municipal drinking water supplier Hessenwasser, the record number is an occasion to point out the importance of “drinking water as food no. 1”. “We want to raise awareness of the economical use of the most important resource,” warns Hessenwasser. Using drinking water for watering lawns, for example, doe...

Siberian permafrost is becoming dry, partly due to rapid warming

Collaborative research groups such as the Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology (JAMSTEC) have revealed that the permafrost in Siberia is becoming more and more dry, partly due to the rapid warming of the region. The paper has recently been published in an English scientific journal as a result of research supporting the widespread impact of global warming around the Arctic.JAMSTEC’s field of surface material environment research and joint research groups such as the Institute for Space-Earth Environment, Nagoya University have data on the “gravity observation satellite” launched by the US Aerospace Agency (NASA) and the German Aerospace Center (DLR) in 2002. The amount of water (land water storage) contained in the soil, marshes and lakes of the permafrost zone of Siberia o...

Global warming could cause more heavy rain than previously expected

The raw material for rain and snow that falls from the sky is water vapor in the atmosphere. When the air containing a lot of water vapor rises, the temperature drops and the water vapor cannot be completely contained. Then, the excess water vapor sticks to small dust in the air and becomes water or ice, which falls to the ground. That is rain and snow. Therefore, if the atmosphere contains a lot of water vapor, it is easy to be hit by heavy rain or snow when the wind hits a mountain and the air runs up a slope or encounters cold air in the sky.As the temperature of the air rises, the maximum amount of water vapor that can be contained increases. It is expected that extreme heavy rainfall will increase as global warming progresses, and for that reason, it is important to properly understan...
