In recent years, there has been a dramatic depletion of bee populations. There are many reasons for this. The reasons include the increase in numbers of varroa mites in beehives, a lack of food supply or the increasing use of pesticides. In addition, there is a lack of young beekeepers, who can take on this problem.

We have all probably eaten algae at some point – wrapped around maki sushi or used as a thickening agent in instant meals. Algae, and microalgae in particular, have also been cultivated at the industrial level since the 1950s with the aim of preserving natural raw materials for a variety of areas of application.
The first Nunam power storage systems based on used laptop batteries have been distributed and are proving their worth in everyday use. They are robust, quiet and easy to handle. That is what the early feedback from the users tells us.
