  • Grüne Solarkühlschränke in Swasiland

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Tuesday 25 May 2010
    Objective: 

    Das kleine Königreich im Süden Afrikas gehört zu den ärmsten Ländern der Welt. Die meisten Bewohner leben von Viehzucht und Ackerbau. Für den Klimawandel tragen sie keine Verantwortung, doch die Auswirkungen – steigende Temperaturen und Trockenheit – machen dem Land zu schaffen. Kühlgeräte für Lebensmittel oder Medikamente haben unter diesen Umständen eine besondere Bedeutung. Eine der wenigen Fabriken im Lande produziert nun Kühlschränke und Gefrierboxen – klimafreundlich.

    Publication date: 
    Wednesday 25 May 2016
    Objective: 

    No mundo industrializado, geladeiras fazem parte do cotidiano. No entanto, boa parte delas ainda gasta muita energia e, se não forem descartadas corretamente, o líquido que serve para refrigerar pode causar graves danos ao clima. Em uma pequena fábrica no pequeno e pobre reino da Suazilândia, são produzidos aparelhos de refrigeração que não prejudicam o meio ambiente.

  • Neveras ecológicas en Suazilandia

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Tuesday 25 May 2010
    Objective: 

    The small kingdom of southern Africa is among the poorest countries in the world. Most of its inhabitants live on livestock and agriculture. Although not responsible for climate change, its effects - increasing temperatures and droughts - put the population in serious trouble. In these circumstances, having refrigerators for food or medicine has a special meaning. One of the few factories in the country has started to produce eco-friendly refrigerators. The appliances work not only without climate-damaging refrigerants, but also consume less energy, with solar powered models.

  • Green refrigerators in Swaziland

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Wednesday 26 May 2010
    Objective: 

    Swaziland, a small kingdom in southern Africa, is one of the poorest regions in the world. Most residents depend on farming and cattle grazing for their livelihood. Only a few own cars. They aren't responsible for climate change but Swaziland has been hard hit by the consequences – rising temperatures and drought. Appliances that keep food and medicines cool are hugely important. One of the few factories in the country now produces refrigerators and freezers in an environmentally-friendly way. And the appliances are powered by solar energy.

  • Refroidissement - Croissance - Changement Climatique

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Saturday 1 December 2012
    Objective: 
    1. Une consommation d’énergie en hausse et le droit au refroidissement? Doit-on envisager un droit à disposer d’un réfrigérateur et d’un climatiseur, comme il existe un droit au chauffage?
    2. Des chaînes du froid pour un approvisionnement sain D’après les estimations de l’Organisation mondiale de la santé (OMS), 30 % en moyenne de l’ensemble des denrées alimentaires sont perdues à défaut d’un entreposage frigorifique adapté. Dans les pays tropicaux, cette proportion atteint 50 %.
