Shanghi, la ciudad ms poblada del mundo con ms de 24 millones de habitantes es tambin una de las que ms basura producen, con nueve millones de toneladas al ao, de las cuales slo el 20 se recicla. Lanz un importante programa de reciclaje el 1 de julio, con cuatro botes de basura diferentes y reglas un tanto complicadas. Muchos residentes todava tienen dudas: la carne va a parar a los residuos "hmedos" es decir orgnicos pero a dnde van los huesos? Respuesta: los huesos de los animales pequeos como las aves de corral pueden pasar a los residuos orgnicos, porque se descomponen ms fcilmente, pero los huesos de cerdo o de ternera van a la incineradora. Ahora, hay cuatro contenedores en las residencias de Shanghi: reciclables, residuos hmedos, residuos secos no reciclables y, por ltimo, residuos peligrosos como las bateras elctricas. La principal novedad es el contenedor para residuos orgnicos, que deben ser transformados en compost o producir biogs. Los otros contenedores ya existan antes, pero no funcionaban. Esta vez, la ciudad est determinada a cambiar las cosas. Formar a 24 millones de personas a separar residuos Con el fin de dotarse de los medios para alcanzar su meta, Shanghi ha contratado a 1.700 instructores y ha organizado 13.000 sesiones de formacin. Pero adems, la ciudad puede contar con una slida red de voluntarios de los comits de barrio, que estn all para explicar a los residentes cmo separar los residuos. Probablemente se necesite algo de tiempo para que todo el mundo juega el juego, pero algunas residencias formaron parte de las zonas piloto, donde el sistema se puso en marcha un ao antes, y ya se puede hacer un primer balance. Recompensas y multas Al principio, segn los residentes, es un poco molesto porque ya no se puede tirar la basura en cualquier momento: los contenedores estn abiertos slo tres horas por la maana y tres horas por la tarde y se tira los desechos en presencia de los voluntarios. Eso, incluso despus de un ao, lo que significa que las autoridades todava no confan en la gente. Pero uno se acostumbra y termina funcionando bastante bien. Para fomentarlo, tambin existe un sistema de recompensas: los residentes ganan puntos cada vez que clasifican bien, puntos que pueden convertirse en jabn y pauelos. Para los que clasifican mal, sin embargo, la ciudad prev hasta 200 yuanes de multa, es decir 25 euros, para los particulares. Una sancin que puede ir hasta 60.000 euros para las empresas.

PALMA DE MALLORCA, 10 (EUROPA PRESS) La entidad Amigos de la Tierra Espaa se ha referido al compostaje como una actividad "aliada" para combatir la crisis climtica al combatir la desertificacin y evitar la emisin de "millones de toneladas" de Gases de Efecto Invernadero (GEI), segn se desprende de la investigacin ‘El compostaje, un aliado contra la crisis climtica‘ difundida este lunes por la entidad ecologista. El estudio, realizado por Amigos de la Tierra junto a la Universidad de Santiago y enmarcado en el proyecto ‘Aplicacin de compost procedente de residuos municipales a suelos agrcolas y pastos‘, aborda el anlisis de compost y de suelos de 19 proveedores distintos en diversos territorios de todo el Estado con caractersticas distintas, como Aragn, La Rioja, Catalua, Galicia, Madrid o Baleares. PLANTAS DE COMPOSTAJE DESCENTRALIZADAS En concreto, Amics de la Terra Mallorca ha participado en la investigacin con el compost de la planta de Son Reus-Palma (TIRME) en dos terrenos situados en Biniaraix y Bunyola. El estudio concluye que la calidad del compost utilizado es baja debido al proceso de metanizacin seguido, que mezcla la fraccin orgnica de recogida municipal con los fangos de las depuradoras. La entidad ha abogado por el despliegue de pequeas plantas de compostaje descentralizadas alrededor de la Isla, una medida prevista en el Plan Director Sectorial de Residuos no Peligrosos de Mallorca. Adems, han recordado la necesidad de poner en marcha el segundo digestor de metanizacin de Son Reus, para que la fraccin orgnica y los lodos de depuradora tengan flujos diferenciados y, por tanto, el compost resultante aumente de calidad. APUESTA POR EL COMPOSTAJE En la misma lnea, Amics de la Terra se ha referido a la Ley de Residuos balear ya que pone el foco en la prevencin, reutilizacin, preparacin para la reutilizacin y reciclaje. De hecho, el texto establece que antes del 2021 se llegue, como mnimo, hasta un 50 por ciento del peso para cada fraccin. De hecho, la entidad se ha referido a datos del Consell de Mallorca para censurar que, en 2017, la fraccin orgnica tratada fue un 3 por ciento del total de residuos domsticos generados, mientras que la fraccin rechazo recibi el 85 por ciento de todo el peso restante. Con todo, Amics de la Terra ha instado a las administraciones a "apostar" por el compostaje como una herramienta "decisiva" para contribuir en la lucha contra la crisis climtica.

Vivimos actualmente una verdadera guerra contra el plstico. Se trata de una de las problemticas medioambientales ms preocupantes del momento y son constantes las denuncias por parte de la sociedad vdeos que muestran cmo el Mediterrneo es un autntico vertedero o curiosas noticias, como la de una pareja que recauda dinero para su boda a base de recoger envases para su reciclado, ocupan titulares en los medios cada da. Mirar a otro lado no es una opcin y no son pocas las iniciativas que se han puesto en marcha para intentar poner fin a esta lamentable situacin. Desde batidas ciudadanas para limpiar playas y otros espacios naturales a originales iniciativas empresariales como Segundos para el planeta, que incentiva el reciclaje a travs de cupones descuento. Las nuevas alternativas al reciclaje de envases se encuentran en continua evolucin De forma paralela, tambin se trabaja por ofrecer cada vez ms alternativas de envases eco, biodegradables, compostables, realizados con materiales como maz o algas incluso, los hay que se pueden plantar despus de usar. Reducir el consumo de plstico es una medida que nos atae a todos, empezando por los establecimientos hosteleros que ofrecen comida para llevar. "Hemos encontrado sin problema envases para las ensaladas, cubiertos compostables o bolsas de papel, pero an no hemos dado con un recipiente que nos convenza para utilizar en la termoselladora, por ejemplo, para un plato de cuchara", nos comenta Maite de Cruz de Eraman & On Egin en San Sebastin, una tienda de cocina casera pensada para take away. tupperVER GALERA Pero la innovacin avanza al ritmo de la conciencia y no tardarn en ajustar los envases limpios a todo tipo de necesidades porque es hacia donde hay que ir, tal y como apunta Maite. Sin embargo, para salvar la situacin, animan a sus clientes a que se traigan su propio tupper y as no solo no se usa plstico sino que se favorece la reutilizacin, el verdadero reto de futuro. Una idea que comparte Fernando lamo, de Uh-mami, especializado en boles, ensaladas, zumos y batidos. No tiene mesas, la gente recoge su pedido y se lo lleva al muro de la playa de la Zurriola, por ejemplo, por lo que es de vital importancia "ser responsable de los envases que ofreces". Nos cuenta que ha conseguido tener absolutamente todos sus recipientes eco (boles de maz, cubiertos compostables o pajitas de papel) pero que ha sido un reto y un esfuerzo a la vez, pues su coste es ms alto. Explica que la diferencia ronda casi los 15 cntimos y que an no somos conscientes de lo que supone. El uso de recipientes eco supone an un importante esfuerzo econmico para particulares y empresas Es en este punto donde se valoran alternativas como las de cobrar las bolsas de los supermercados, que fomentan que lleves la tuya propia. En su caso, se tratara de valorar propuestas como cobrar cubiertos extra (hay quien comparte y pide varios cubiertos) o descontar a quien traiga los suyos de casa o reutilice los que recibi la primera vez. "El problema no es pasar al compostable, el verdadero problema es no reutilizar, porque tambin el envase ecolgico sigue siendo desechable y se tiene que fabricar, se sigue gastando agua, emitiendo CO2", advierte Fernando. granelVER GALERA Desde hace tiempo muchas superficies comerciales ofrecen por unos cntimos amplias bolsas reutilizables para la compra, hay quien ya ha puesto a disposicin de los clientes las de malla para las frutas y verduras y los que han hecho una fuerte apuesta por el granel, como Pepita y Grano, con tiendas en Madrid, Ponferrada, Donostia y Valencia. Envases ecolgicos, por supuesto, pero sobre todo ms conciencia de lo nocivo del ‘usar y tirar‘, ms reutilizacin y ms hacernos cargo de nuestros propios envases. Cada vez es ms frecuente ver cmo se acude a la pescadera o carnicera con el tupper, gestos que deben ser tan aplaudidos como imitados.

En qu consiste el movimiento Zero Waste? Este movimiento se basa en la regla de las 5 erres: rechazar lo que no necesitamos, reducir lo que necesitamos, reutilizar los envases y materiales y optar por el consumo de segunda mano, reciclar todo aquello que no se puede rechazar ni reducir y rot, es decir, descomponer la materia orgnica para obtener abono natural. Segn la Alianza Internacional Zero Waste, la cultura del usar y tirar y el ritmo de consumo desenfrenado, sobre todo en los pases desarrollados, est provocando serios problemas medioambientales. Por ejemplo, el vertido de productos y sustancias qumicas sin tratar contamina los lagos, mares y ocanos.

El envo aterriz en Surabaya, la segunda ciudad ms grande de Indonesia, a mediados de junio, despus de haber sido enviado desde Brisbane. Se supona que solo contena residuos de papel para reciclar, pero los inspectores encontraron que estaba mezclado con varios tipos de basura, incluidos residuos domsticos y electrnicos, aceite, botellas de plstico y paales. La ley de Indonesia decreta que los envos que contengan contaminantes deben ser devueltos a su pas de origen. La basura se consider demasiado contaminada para ser reciclada y un funcionario anunci el martes en un evento de prensa que se enviar de inmediato a Australia tan pronto como se procesen los documentos. Examinamos cuidadosamente los productos importados sospechosos y descubrimos que estaban contaminados con desechos txicos, dijo Basuki Suryanto, de la Oficina de Aduanas e Impuestos Especiales, informa el Jakarta Post.

Clique para acessar DESARROLLAN UN LUBRICANTE PARA VEHCULOS A PARTIR DE RESIDUOS DE LA INDUSTRIA PAPELERA - 12/07/2019

Investigadores de la Universidad de Huelva han obtenido una grasa para ser utilizada como lubricante en vehculos y maquinaria a partir de la lignina, un compuesto que normalmente se desecha en la fabricacin del papel. El nuevo producto cuenta con la viscosidad, consistencia y propiedades viscoelsticas necesarias para un correcto rendimiento. La lignina es un compuesto responsable de la formacin de las paredes celulares de las plantas y, por tanto, est presente en la madera. Al ser de color oscuro, es desechado por la industria papelera que utiliza, fundamentalmente, la celulosa para hacer el papel. Los investigadores lo proponen como una alternativa ptima en la produccin de lubricantes. En el artculo Modification of Alkali Lignin with Poly(Ethylene Glycol) Diglycidyl Ether to Be Used as a Thickener in Bio-Lubricant Formulations, publicado en la revista Polymers, aseguran que tiene un rendimiento adecuado, similar a las grasas comerciales usadas actualmente, y es ms respetuoso con el medio ambiente. El propsito principal de estos materiales en determinadas maquinarias es lubricar las partes mviles para reducir la friccin y el desgaste. Adems, tambin es el responsable de la limpieza y de que no se produzca corrosin en el motor. Por otro lado, reduce la temperatura disipando el calor y minimizando as la prdida de material derivada del roce entre las partes. Los ms usados actualmente proceden del petrleo, por lo que son altamente contaminantes. Con el objetivo de eliminar estos productos derivados de hidrocarburos, se estn incluyendo aceites vegetales en las formulaciones de grasas. Sin embargo, el uso de espesantes naturales presenta algunas desventajas, ya que no consiguen aportar las mismas propiedades al producto final. La comunidad acadmica y la industria estn realizando esfuerzos considerables para desarrollar lubricantes amigables con el medio ambiente con caractersticas tcnicas adecuadas para su desempeo, indica a la Fundacin Descubre la investigadora de la Universidad de Huelva Esperanza Corts Trivio, autora del artculo. LUBRICANTES DE ORIGEN VEGETAL Y RENDIMIENTO La mayor dificultad que existe para la utilizacin de aceites de origen vegetal es su rendimiento, ya que no tienen la mismas propiedades que los derivados del petrleo. Por tanto, para lograr las caractersticas necesarias, hay que aadirles espesantes. Los investigadores proponen incluir la lignina modificada qumicamente con un compuesto conocido por sus siglas PEGDE (poli-etilenglicol-diglicidil ter). El resultado es una nueva sustancia, llamada lignina epoxidada, que aporta las propiedades necesarias para ser utilizada como espesante y que al ser mezclada con un aceite vegetal proporciona una respuesta viscoelstica tpica de geles de tipo slido. Las ligninas epoxidizadas en diferentes grados mostraron diferentes perfiles de degradacin trmica por lo que podra considerarse un candidato prometedor para ser utilizado como un agente espesante para formular grasas lubricantes sostenibles, afirma la investigadora. El aceite utilizado en el estudio fue de ricino que, junto a la lignina epoxidada, resulta un oleogel apto para aplicaciones en lubricantes. Los expertos analizaron el producto desde el punto de vista reolgico, cmo es el flujo viscoso, y tribolgico, es decir, la friccin y el desgaste que tienen lugar durante el contacto entre superficies slidas en movimiento. La variacin de la relacin de PEGDE y lignina en la reaccin de epoxidacin dio lugar a compuestos de lignina con diferentes ndices de epxido. Los resultados demuestran que la viscosidad, la consistencia y las funciones viscoelsticas de estos oleogeles aumentan claramente con el ndice de epxido del compuesto de lignina modificada. Es decir, cuanto mayor sea la modificacin qumica de la lignina, mayor ser la mezcla y mejores las propiedades finales del lubricante. Los trabajos han sido financiados a travs de los proyectos Funcionalizacin de polmeros naturales con grupos isocianatos para el desarrollo de oleogeles biodegradables con diversas aplicaciones industriales, de la Consejera de Economa, Conocimiento, Empresas y Universidad de la Junta de Andaluca, y Formulacin de oleogeles biodegradables para diversas aplicaciones industriales a partir de fracciones lignocelulsicas pretratadas y modificadas qumicamente, del Ministerio de Economa y Empresa.
