In a Berlin apartment building with 33 flats, an ion-exchanger (salt) that was used as a de-scaling device for the water system broke down in 2007. The repair was estimated to cost approximately 4’500 Euro. The management company for the building, Köpfle Consult, came across Penergetic in its search for alternatives. Penergetic’s local technical advisor, Mr Jerry Letzat, was asked to present his alternative, Penergetic water vitalisation, at the next residents’ meeting. At the information evening it quickly became apparent that most tenants had recurring limescale problems. The water hardness level the area is 4 (very hard, more than 21,3 °dH), which for Berlin is rock-hard indeed.
In 2004 the well-respected German magazine for the sanitation, heating, air-conditioning and plumbing trade, SBZ, carried out an unusual test. Since the most curious reports about water vitalisation kept appearing in the media and left consumers as well as professional experts confused as to what to make of these praised devices, the trade magazine decided to carry out a large scale field test. Penergetic’s main claim is that there is clear evidence that potential limescale problems in the house, in heating systems as well as in electrical appliances that come into contact with water, can be improved. The SBZ magazine wanted to put these claims to the test themselves. 35 companies from the plumbing trade agreed to take part in this large-scale practical test and to install the AquaKat devices provided by Penergetic.
Natural equilibrium swiftly restored
In a pond with reeds, water lilies and various aquatic plants, excessive algae growth, floating algal mats and fish kills were observed. On 08.05.2003 it was treated with Penergetic-w-Surface-Water as an emergency measure. According to the instructions, ponds like this one (under 100 m²) are treated initially with 5 g Penergetic-w well mixed with water and applied with a watering can. For subsequent treatments 2 g are sufficient. The depth of the water bodies does not play such an important role in this, because the microorganisms that are to be treated all live within 2 metres below the water surface. [Read more...]
For fish in fresh water aquariums it is vital that the water is kept as clean and balanced as possible. For this, a filtration system is required. Even though this will clear murkiness and absorb certain dissolved substances, it can not deal with every kind of organic waste. This is where Penergetic comes in. It has been proven in hundreds of trials that Penergetic products are able to stimulate micro-organisms. So why not in aquarium water too? [Read more...]
One of the most impressive Penergetic success of the past few years can be observed in the Bavarian Spa village of Bad Bayersoien. Situated right beside the village with all its health treatment activities, the 200’000 m² Lake Bad Bayersoien had become a problem case for the community. Even though it is a typical lake for the area with good water inlets and outlets, excessive plant growth and siltation was a permanent worry for the district council. As an emergency measure, the lake had to be dredged out in places at a cost of approximately 900’000 Euro. But even that measure was not sufficient and an expensive weedcutting launch was acquired. The launch was used several times a year to cut the annoying waterweeds by about 30 cm. Nonetheless, swimmers felt uncomfortable in the lake and some tourists did not return. [Read more...]
The pea trial shows that the Penergetic effects are clearly aimed at the fruit. On the same fallow land that had remained unused for six years, 2’800 (Penergetic) plants and 3’500 (control) plants were planted. The parameter regarding cultivation: 85’714 seeds planted at 0,7 m between rows and 6 plants per metre. Again, 2 kg of compost per m2 were placed on the control field and an additional 400 g Penergetic-p per hectare on the test field.
Another impressive trial took place in the town of Frey Benitos: Penergetic-p was sprayed at a dosage of 400 g per hectare or 20 g per 15 litres of water. The compost and the above mentioned amounts of Penergetic-p were applied to the test field. Only ordinary compost was placed on the control field, approximately 2 kg per square metre on both fields. The previous crop on the trial area was wine growing in 1998; from 1999 to 2005 the area remained fallow. [Read more...]
Composting plant in Uruguay was nearly shut down
José Luis Dominguez wanted to compost waste originating from his large plant. After a promising start the raw material began to stink terribly, in particular during the warm seasons. It was expected that the authorities would be forced to close down the plant. Now the Zenda Leather Company was looking for alternatives. They made contact with Penergetic who recommended the use of Penergetic-k for compost to reduce the smell. Almost immediately after the first application the smell was reduced to such an extent that there were no further complaints.
The valuable organic fertilizer
Composting is the controlled decomposition / rotting of organic material with oxygen. Microorganisms (bacteria, fungi and similar), called saprophages, break down the structure- forming components (wood cellulose, etc.) of the plants as well as their components such as sugar. Through their metabolic functions they create metabolytes that are further processed by other saprophages. In this way the biomass is broken down into its original components which are then available for use by higher plants as nutrients. [Read more...]
Breaking new ground with Penergetic in South Korea
At long last, intensive mass chicken farming is to be prohibited from 2009. At least small aviaries, approximately two and a half square metres in size and in which about 30 chickens can move around slightly more freely than in their current conditions where each animal has a living area smaller than an A4 sheet, will then be used. Apart from these living conditions the feed usually has antibiotics mixed into it as a preventative measure. However, an interesting trial with Penergetic-k and –t on a chicken farm in South Korea carried out by Kunkuk University in Seoul, has proven that there is another way. [Read more...]
