The newly revamped TES information portal: how to safely handle dangerous goods

23.02.2011
Hazardous goods travel on Germany’s roads, railways and waterways every day – more than 350 million tons annually.

In order to increase the safety of these transports, BAM (Federal Institute for Materials Research and Testing) provides a lot of information about this topic online.

TES (Technical Safety) information is directed at all parties involved – manufacturers, carriers and end users of dangerous goods – as well as the general public. The portal at www.tes.bam.de has now been completely revamped.

There are four major areas of emphasis dedicated to the different types of containment systems: among them are dangerous goods packagings, containers for radioactive substances, pressure vessels and pressure equipment, tanks and containers, as well as the evaluation of their materials.

On TES, manufacturers of dangerous goods packagings can get information on how to obtain certifications for their products. End users can get assistance in their search for suitable packaging. In addition, there are references to regulations, standards and international rules. The service area provides outlines on current developments, events and training centres. A link portal points to further information sources on the internet.

New summary pages for each topic facilitate quick preliminary research and describe which information is available. In the future, the information portal will also include practical manuals for manufacturers, authorities and testing centres.

Im Focus: Can we see monkeys from space? Emerging technologies to map biodiversity

An international team of scientists has proposed a new multi-disciplinary approach in which an array of new technologies will allow us to map biodiversity and the risks that wildlife is facing at the scale of whole landscapes. The findings are published in Nature Ecology and Evolution. This international research is led by the Kunming Institute of Zoology from China, University of East Anglia, University of Leicester and the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research.

Using a combination of satellite and ground data, the team proposes that it is now possible to map biodiversity with an accuracy that has not been previously...

Im Focus: Climate satellite: Tracking methane with robust laser technology

Heatwaves in the Arctic, longer periods of vegetation in Europe, severe floods in West Africa – starting in 2021, scientists want to explore the emissions of the greenhouse gas methane with the German-French satellite MERLIN. This is made possible by a new robust laser system of the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen, which achieves unprecedented measurement accuracy.

Methane is primarily the result of the decomposition of organic matter. The gas has a 25 times greater warming potential than carbon dioxide, but is not as...

Im Focus: How protons move through a fuel cell

Hydrogen is regarded as the energy source of the future: It is produced with solar power and can be used to generate heat and electricity in fuel cells. Empa researchers have now succeeded in decoding the movement of hydrogen ions in crystals – a key step towards more efficient energy conversion in the hydrogen industry of tomorrow.

As charge carriers, electrons and ions play the leading role in electrochemical energy storage devices and converters such as batteries and fuel cells. Proton...

Im Focus: A unique data centre for cosmological simulations

Scientists from the Excellence Cluster Universe at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität Munich have establised "Cosmowebportal", a unique data centre for cosmological simulations located at the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ) of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences. The complete results of a series of large hydrodynamical cosmological simulations are available, with data volumes typically exceeding several hundred terabytes. Scientists worldwide can interactively explore these complex simulations via a web interface and directly access the results.

With current telescopes, scientists can observe our Universe’s galaxies and galaxy clusters and their distribution along an invisible cosmic web. From the...
