Almost another ton of CO2 less - per day!
Every year, the "Minergy"-certified building, the latest generation equipment and the systematic energy plan save about 500 tons of CO2 in Landquart, in the Canton of Grisons in eastern Switzerland. In addition, with the rebuilding of the Churwalden production facility, the CO2 emissions were cut by another 320 tons annually. More about this here.
Heat pumps with natural refrigerants are a energy-efficient technology of the future.

“Sometimes pioneering discoveries are just a coincidence (example: penicillin) or they are based on very ordinary things. This was also the case in relation to heliotherapy in surgical tuberculosis.
It was an aha experience in the truest sense of the word which gave Oscar Bernhard the idea of sunlight therapy.”
The science journalist Heini Hofmann describes the connection between the discovery of heliotherapy (sunlight therapy) and the traditional method of air-drying meat in the sun to make it keep well.
