Excursions to local companies
In April 30 8th grade students went to two excursions to two different companies in our region which are paying attention to ecological problems and trying to reduce the polution.First they went to „ Klaipėda Waters“ and found out the water way : where it comes from and what way it goes to reach our houses. Then we went to Dumpiai wastewater refinery. The new station was built in our region in 1998, since then it effectively cleans household and industrial wastewaters. It uses mechanical and biological methods in theirs works. During the cleaning process they produces gas , which they use to get electricity and heating. Dried mud is also used to fertilize the soil. Then our students went to Thermocouple power station „Fortum“.It uses waste as fuel and is the first such kind of power station in our country. Their work helps to reduce the pollution and to solve the waste accumulation problems in our region. Thermocouple power station uses household and non toxical industrial waste, biofuels and produces electricity and heating for Klaipėda city(40 percent of the needed heating in town). The station uses the newest technologies , which garanties the maximum effectiveness in their work.
