Particulate matter from wood-fired oven

Winter and Christmas time is stove and fireplace time. But watch out: Not all stoves are still allowed to burn because they emit too many pollutants. Although traffic and industry are considered the biggest producers of particulate matter, heating with wood has never been environmentally friendly either. It used to be no problem, but today any dirt that gets into the air is taboo.

E-cars from 1983

The idea of driving a car with electricity is anything but new. As early as 1983, presenter and eco-pioneer Peter Lustig from the popular children's programme "Löwenzahn" was dreaming about it.

France's environmental zones are delayed

When the law on climate and its resilience ("Loi Climat et Résilience") was passed in France on 22 August 2021, many were sure that several low emission zones would be created in France this year. But with one month to go before the end of the year, there are still no low emission zones in many places. In part, there are nothing more than bureaucratic reasons for this.

The dark side of e-cars

Over the last five years, various countries in the EU have been trying to make the entire value chain of a production compatible with human rights and environmental protection. In March 2021, the European Parliament agreed to a report to require due diligence also for companies with less than 1000 employees. This is seen as an invitation to the EU Commission to draft a corresponding law.

Truckers to the office!

Not only since the pandemic have we noticed a shortage of long-distance drivers. Who is still prepared to drive goods across Europe for hours and days on end, harassed by environmental zones that many a heavy truck with the wrong sticker has to avoid. In the future, truck drivers may only need a screen and an armchair to direct the fleet.
