Concepts for the use of alternative energy sources could secure existence Beiersdorf-Freudenberg, 17.09.2009 – that the German dairy industry is in a deep crisis, is known. More and more German dairy farmers see threatened by historically low producer prices increasingly in their existence. Equipped also in Brandenburg statistically anyway with the fewest cattle farmers separate now increasingly by their cattle because for them more costs and benefits in any business relationship. And it gets worse when expires end of 2009 the scheme for low-cost agricultural diesel. Also here the German farmers in Europe feel disadvantaged. So it does not wonder that despite ban of a delivery strike also in Brandenburg some dairy farmers join the protests of their colleagues in France against low milk prices and the liberalisation of the milk market planned by the European Union. In the face of resistance in the EU politics and peasant associations have apparently now resigned to the Status quo. Instead of hoping for the milk quota vehemently demanded by farmers, is to make the courts fit for the competition”, is to hear from official circles.

Dairy farmers should look for possibilities of efficient management of the Court given the difficult market situation, so as to return to the profit zone. An interesting project seems to initiate in southern Brandenburg, Germany. Currently, dairy farmers check whether they reduce their costs for fuel thus, by their own diesel producers. Thus they decouple fully from the international oil market. The State-guaranteed until at least 2015 the price even lower than the price for agricultural diesel is tax exemption, which, as I said, runs out at the end of the year. That could possible make the energy cooperative of Freudenberg. It builds currently four plants, in which the fuel is produced and traded under the name CEHATROL exclusively to members of the cooperative.

Is it primarily as a raw material Straw from the regions to the usage. To compare this biofuel II is not generation with conventional biodiesel”. Due to its certification according to DIN EN 590 it in all diesel generators and engines can be easily used. The entire energy cycle of a dairy operation can be subjected to a tremendous increase in efficiency, ranging to the chillers for cooling of the milk. However, a cooperative membership in cooperative deposits is bound, the community investment but it. The Board of Directors of the energy cooperative Freudenberg pointed out EC, Frank Knauer. Who’s going now to reduce its energy costs, will have a clear pricing and competitive advantage strengthening economy. We invite every farmer to check our offer and to include in its calculation. It is also clear: who wants to take part, must the cooperative participate. Just as the cooperative principle works finally. The cooperative deposits are used exclusively for energy efficiency projects and are additionally secured by a right whale level er account at a particular level.
