Study of Environmental Protection System Implementation in Lithuania

02.05.2012
An Example of the Medical Diagnostic and Treatment Centre (Vilnius)

The University of Klaipeda together with its project partners (BioCon Valley Germany and Pomeranian Medical University Poland) is implementing the „Eco4Life - South Baltic Network for Environmental and Life Sciences to Boost Cross Border Cooperation” project, one of the targets of which is to familiarise with the “Green hospital” concept and the possibilities of its appliance in Lithuania.

This year’s May 15th a study tour to the Medical Diagnostic and Treatment Centre in Vilnius, the only one Lithuanian healthcare institution withISO 9001and ISO 14001 standards and having a "Bureau Veritas" certificate is planned.

The Medical Diagnostic and Treatment Centre is a leader in life sciences area and it is providing various healthcare services, from interventive treatment to early disease diagnostic. The aims of the Centre healthcare with minimising environmental impact assessment policies is to provide the patients (Centre clients) with only the high quality and safe healthcare services, to work with maximum safety, to be a patient-, employee- and environmental-friendly institution and to constantly improve its healthcare and environmental protection quality management.
The trip is being organised for Western Lithuania healthcare institutions, Region administrations and life sciences representatives. The aims will be to familiarise with the ISO 9001and 14001 certification procedures, to discuss the positive aspects of the certification and the difficulties of the management system implementation. At the time of the meeting with the Centre representatives the relevant questions will be discussed, such as the options of the waste and wastewaters management, microbiological pollution control, optimisation of the energy use, maintenance of the safe working environment. The Medical Diagnostic and Treatment Centre managers will also share the experience of how the environmental protection management system has been implemented, how the environmental protection programme was prepared and what indicators are showingthe results of the management system being present.

Im Focus: Giant Magnetic Fields in the Universe

Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.

The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.

Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...

Im Focus: Tracing down linear ubiquitination

Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.

Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Im Focus: Polymer-coated silicon nanosheets as alternative to graphene: A perfect team for nanoelectronics

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.

Im Focus: Researchers Imitate Molecular Crowding in Cells

Enzymes behave differently in a test tube compared with the molecular scrum of a living cell. Chemists from the University of Basel have now been able to simulate these confined natural conditions in artificial vesicles for the first time. As reported in the academic journal Small, the results are offering better insight into the development of nanoreactors and artificial organelles.
