Tübingen: The UKT wants to become more sustainable

Desflurane is the brand name of an anesthetic gas that was also used at the University Hospital in Tübingen (UKT) for a long time. The problem: Desflurane is 2540 times more harmful to the climate than CO2. It has therefore not been used at the UKT since last year. However, because alternative means are not too good for the climate either, filters are being tested for the existing devices that partially collect the gas – “in order to reuse it,” explains Holger Diemer. Since July 2022, the head of the finance department has also been the officer for sustainability at the UKT. Together with the new employee Mareike Freund, Diemer is currently creating the first greenhouse gas balance of the university hospital ever. It should be available by the middle of the year. Because the clinic wants to become more sustainable.

TAGBLATT editor Volker Rekittke comments: “It could also be helpful if the city, university and hospital networked more closely and, for example, set up a regular round table on sustainability. This could then be used to talk about the unresolved traffic issue on Schnarrenberg – or about companies that produce fairly and climate-neutrally and that can supply cities and clinics in the future.

Tübingen is paying more housing benefit again

Madeleine Hetzel has been working in the housing benefit office in Tübingen for four years. “Initially it was said: Yes, you can still do the little housing benefit. But in the meantime it is becoming more and more extensive, ”reported the head of the social committee. No wonder, she writes in her report: “Steadily and strongly rising rents have meant that housing benefit has become an indispensable contribution to securing a livelihood for many people.”
