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: Interfacial Superconductivity: Magnetic and superconducting order revealed simultaneously

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.

While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...

Im Focus: Designing Architecture with Solar Building Envelopes

Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.

As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...
