The-Environmentalist was born in October 1954 in Bottrop, Germany. He is married and father of five children. He is a professional industrial manager and developer. In 1975, he passed the examination of the German Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Hamburg.
Since 1984, The-Environmentalist has been working in the field of environmental technology, chemical products, instruments, machines and manufacturing plants. Before he became self-employed in 1993, he worked as the chief executive officer of a mineral oil group. The-Environmentalist was involved in research and development in the field of new environmental technology, where he established his contacts with business partners worldwide.
In 1994, The-Environmentalist started to deal intensively with the processes for the purification of contaminated soil and other substances, developing new purifying methods and procedures. His fundamental product is the ECOREFINE, a procedure for commercial cleaning of contaminated oil, household- and medical waste, sewage- grinding- and oil sludge. Further results include almost all inorganic waste being recycled and all organic waste capable of being converted to fertiliser by using a soil and plant activator. This invention has encouraged The-Environmentalist to plan international projects and extend his range of environmentally friendly products and inventions for a healthier and cleaner future.
Further developments are in the field of water treatment, sewage treatment, construction, renewable energy, and reduction of CO2 values. He is, among others, also the creator and inventor of the most environmentally sensitive city of the world, the Green Industry, the University for Environment. An institute should also be established here to be able to look at commonalities and differences of the three main religions Judaism, Christianity and Islam - by people, regardless of their nationality, culture, religion or health - in harmony and mutual respect.
As early as 1997, The-Environmentalist was nominated by VDMA and BDI for the Innovation Award of the Federal President. However, since accepting prizes is in principle contrary to The-Environmentalist's mentality, it declined the nomination.
Business Experience in Middle East
The-Environmentalist visited the United Arab Emirates for the first time in 1971.
Starting with the exhibition “Germany and the Gulf” in 1995, he has met many local businessmen, including a well-known Emirati from Dubai. His Sharjah-based company awarded The-Environmentalist an environmental prize in 2000.
This environmental prize was awarded for the introduction of an environmentally friendly cleaning system for jewellery and gold. Until then, ammonia cleaners have been used in this field, which are not only environmentally unfriendly, but their substances are also extremely harmful to the health of the workers. The ceremony was unexpected; it was the first - and last - award that The-Environmentalist has accepted and will ever accept. His inventions and environmental products are not for prizes; what counts for him are people and the environment.
Since 1996, The-Environmentalist has developed his business relationship with Sharjah further. As the creator and inventor of the world's most environmentally friendly city, for which construction began in Abu Dhabi in February 2008 according to his initial concept, he moved to Sharjah with his family on 2 January 2006 at the invitation of the then Director of the Environment and Protected Areas Authority (a position which at that time was equivalent to the rank of a Minister for Environment).
For 25 years, The-Environmentalist has successfully completed environmental projects in Sharjah and for 15 years he had his business operations there. In 2005, The-Environmentalist had his first official meeting with a group of German business partners in the palace of His Highness Sheikh Dr. Sultan bin Muhammad Al Qasimi, Ruler of Sharjah and Member of the UAE Supreme Council.
Since 2014, The-Environmentalist has been working with His Highness Sheikh Dr Sultan bin Muhammad Al Qasimi to finalise the Blue EcoPower System for Sharjah, a device which is able to produce energy without negative environmental effects at a production cost of around £ 0.015 per kW/h.
Due to the pandemic and stricter measures in the UAE regarding entry and exit regulations, especially for the German engineers and consultants, The-Environmentalist decided in August 2020 to temporarily relocate his business operations. He received offers from several countries, but finally decided to relocate to Scotland.
Guiding Principle of The-Environmentalist
Since 1984, The-Environmentalist has made significant contributions in the field of applied environmental care. Among experts, his inventions of the ECOREFINE and the water treatment plant HWT are today considered a milestone within environmental technologies.
Within the last 35 years, The-Environmentalist has met numerous politicians, representatives of economy and research as well as genuinely interested people. He came to realise that the majority of mankind swims with the current. However, you have to swim against the tide to reach your aim.
“Act! Act! That is what we are here for!”
With this motto in mind, The-Environmentalist has decided to take a new direction – not only to make use of the technologies and procedures that he developed, but beyond it to create a system that helps us in thinking and acting for our environment in the most positive way.
Within this, The-Environmentalist is presenting the cornerstones of a new path, showing the possibilities for changing the environment. It is now possible to implement these visions together, according to firm principles and regulations based on mutual trust and a common desire to undertake these significant steps.
The environmental technologies, the whole Blue Building® Concept are unique. The-Environmentalist’s target is to do the impossible, to stop the progressing climate change and to stand up for an environment with a future.
Reflections about the Environment
People write poetry about creation, the beauty and uniqueness of Mother Nature at any given occasion. The scientist researches life, plants, light and infinity daily. Still, the secret of life remains an incomprehensible miracle.
There are myriads of comments, opinions, citations, reports and books that are trying to paraphrase "environment". Many of these paraphrases correspond with each other, or are contradictory. Being overwhelmed with daily influences,which affect everybody in a different way; people have little or no time to care about nature and hence to preserve what generates life.
We trust the responsible individuals - but do we know who these people really are?
Many refer to their environmental policies, to their (embellished) successes, but the condition of our Mother Nature is deteriorating daily - worldwide - everywhere - also at the place where you are reading these lines right now.
The most frequent answer to this change of condition is:
"I cannot change anything"
- but are we on the right track with this statement?
On closer examination, it is evident that the ambitions of many consist of greed for profit, at the expense of the environment and our health. The awareness of our natures and humanity vanishes more and more.
Over the course of the last 30 years, the-Environmentalist has met numerous inventors who have made up fantastic environmental projects, but who have never been able to realise their plans due to the lack of real support. Combined with the Blue Building® Concept, he will make it possible for these investors to become established within his Blue Building Foundation Team and additionally, to strengthen the aim that this Foundation will become the Number One in the world within the field of environment.
Causality denotes a necessary relationship between one event (the cause) and another event (the effect),
whereby one is the direct consequence of the other.
The cognition is composed by the answer to the question of the where-from
and the connection with the where-to. Knowledge can be raised
if it encompasses the fountainhead, progress and conclusion.
