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: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.

The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Im Focus: Three Magnetic States for Each Hole

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".

Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
