GROHE Introduces Waste System Kitchen Products in Ghana

Filling pots, preparing food and doing the dishes after a delicious meal: Oftentimes things have to go fast and it can get a little hectic when it comes to hot pots and pans. The work area around the kitchen sink plays a crucial role in this process and is used countless times day after day and encounters high levels of stress. At the same time, the kitchen is increasingly becoming the focal point of everyday life.

Style and design are more and more important across all price segments. Here, GROHE (Grohe.com) offers individual system solutions for every requirement for the entire working area around ​​the kitchen sink.

Quality, functionality, sustainability and design characterize the GROHE kitchen portfolio, which is perfectly matched in form and function. Together with other kitchen accessories, the products can be combined with various design options.

The GROHE Kitchen Colors now also include selected sinks, faucets, and the GROHE Blue and GROHE Red water systems as well as accessories in timelessly trendy colors, injecting each kitchen an individual, colorful look. New to the portfolio, GROHE now also offers waste systems that harmonize perfectly with the GROHE water systems under the kitchen sink and make free-standing waste bins in the kitchen unnecessary.

GROHE is expanding its range of kitchen sinks to include composite sinks in Granite Black and Granite Gray, offering the PerfectMatch to faucets with Chrome and SuperSteel finishes as well as GROHE Kitchen Colors.

The features of the modern-looking composite sinks leave nothing to be desired, even for kitchen professionals. The surface is exceptionally resistant and withstands temperatures up to 280 °C. Even sharp knives cannot harm the sink’s scratch-resistant finish when preparing food, while its simple cleaning requirements make for a convenient wash-up after eating, making it easy to clean even large casserole dishes thanks to the sinks’ generous size. And thanks to the noise-reducing GROHE Whisper insulation, the typical noises that occur when doing the dishes in the sink are reduced to a minimum.

In five different designs, the composite sinks come with either one, one and a half or two basins and with or without drainer. Thanks to either the standard topmount model or the undermount version underneath the sink, there is a suitable place in almost every kitchen. Just as with the GROHE stainless-steel sinks in AISI 304 and AISI 316 alloys, the new composite sinks feature multiple pre-drilled holes and a GROHE QuickFix mounting kit for faucet and pop-up operation, eliminating the need for additional tools during installation and making the whole process go fast and efficient. As standard, GROHE offers a 5-year warranty on its entire sink portfolio.

Thanks to the innovative PVD (Physical Vapor Deposition) manufacturing process, GROHE brings color accents to the kitchen with selected faucets and sinks. The technology originates from the aerospace industry and has set a new standard for the quality of finishes: A finish that is three times harder compared to Chrome and ten times more resistant to scratches makes faucets and sinks not only look good, but also be capable to withstand the toughest everyday kitchen use.

Consequently, consumers can create color accents to match their individual style. The K700U sink series with a basin depth of 20cm is available in the GROHE Colors Brushed Hard Graphite, Brushed Cool Sunrise and Brushed Warm Sunset which match perfectly with different faucet lines featuring brushed and polished finishes. A smaller, by no means less exclusive assortment of colors is available for the GROHE Blue and GROHE Red water systems, each of which adds a touch of color to the kitchen in Hard Graphite, Brushed Hard Graphite and Warm and Brushed Warm Sunset. The GROHE Kitchen Colors offer consumers almost unlimited combination possibilities in connection with the PerfectMatch of faucet and sink.

GROHE completes its full portfolio of solutions for the work area around the kitchen sink with new waste systems. Suitable for swinging doors and extricable door mounting in the cabinet underneath the sink, these are dimensioned to match the GROHE Blue and GROHE Red water systems.

Running rails, frame and waste bins are ideally matched to the space available with GROHE’s water systems and leave them enough room, making free-standing waste bins that are impractical and often cumbersome for working in the kitchen a thing of the past.

With the waste systems, the practical and functional work area of the kitchen sink remains fully intact and offers maximum convenience for your busy everyday life.

Available for sink cabinets with a width of either 60 or 90cm, one, two or three waste containers can be used. Depending on the waste cabinet’s width, capacity combinations of 16 to a maximum of 40 litres are available.

Bodija market traders recycling

By Aduragbemi Omiyale

Some traders in Bodija market, Ibadan, Oyo State, have been rewarded for segregating their waste to make it easier for recycling.

The beneficiaries were given gift items like Bluetooth headsets, customised simple chest bags, and customised face caps by the waste management consultant to the Oyo State government, Mottainai Recycling, on Friday through an initiative known as Recyclables for Rewards.

At the campaign, in its third year, two tonnes of recyclables were recovered by the company, which is managing waste collection in the state.

The Managing Director of Mottainai Recycling, Mr Adey Adewuyi, sensitised traders, buyers and passers-by in Bodija market and its environs on how the waste they generate could be a source of wealth.

Mr Adewuyi, represented by the firm’s Chief Sustainability Officer, Ms Deborah Fadeyi, urged the traders to embrace proper waste disposal and management habits like segregating their waste at source.

He further encouraged them to avoid dumping waste on the median, warning that those caught erring would be fined and punished according to law.

Also, the Special Adviser to Governor Seyi Makinde on Environmental Matters, Mr Ademola Aderinto, explained that the initiative was aimed at creating awareness among traders and residents to segregate their waste at source and recover as much plastics before it enters into the water bodies and landfills.

He said that the event showcases the economic and social benefits of recycling, adding that “the event is aimed at making the good people of Oyo State see value in what they consider as waste.”

“These wastes would have otherwise ended up in landfills and water bodies which will contribute to the pollution of the environment,” he added.

Mr Aderinto discouraged the act of dumping waste on the median by the market men and women and also encouraged them to sort out their waste to ease the act of recycling, noting that the government will do more to eradicate the issue of improper waste disposal and management in the state.

“There was also an adequate and effective sensitisation and awareness campaign in the market on the need for proper waste management. They were also enlightened on the economic benefits of recycling instead of allowing their recyclables to end up on the median, water bodies or the landfills,” he said.

Jos Disco number of meters installed

By Adedapo Adesanya

The Jos Electricity Distribution Plc (JED) has decried the slow pace of meter provision to customers and has craved for more efforts toward achieving the metering goals of the company.

The Managing Director of the Jos DisCo, Mr Abdu Mohammed, in a statement, said the slow adoption of the prepaid metering system was making things difficult for the organisation, which aims to bridge the metering gap.

Speaking during a meeting with vendors handling the company’s Meters Asset Providers (MAP) programme, the energy expert noted that the firm plans to provide 400,000 meters to its customers.

“If you look at the number of meters installed by MAP, it is not impressive. We still have a very long way to go.

“We will need to expeditiously bridge the metering gap to provide efficient and effective services and upscale our revenue

”It is our desire to provide 400,000 meters to our customers soon,” he said at the gathering.

The JED managing director asked the vendors to submit their meters deployment plans for 2023, maintaining that all plans must be strictly adhered to.

Mr Mohammed, who expressed optimism that most of the company’s customers would soon be metered, said MAP was introduced to ease access to meters and eradicate billing disputations.

In their separate responses, the representatives of Mojec, Triple Seven, Skyruns and Momas, all vendors with JED, promised to live up to their mandates of ensuring all customers were metered.

Aminu Adamu Aisha Buhari

By Modupe Gbadeyanka

A student of the Federal University, Dutse, Jigawa State, Mr Aminu Adamu, has been remanded in prison for allegedly ‘insulting’ the wife of President Muhammadu Buhari, Mrs Aisha Buhari.

A few days ago, news filtered in that Mr Adamu was kidnapped by some security officials to Aso Rock, Abuja, over his post on Twitter that the President’s wife was feeding fat on the taxes paid by the poor masses.

This did not go down well with the First Lady, and the student, who is reportedly due to write his final year exams next week, was taken away from his campus and allegedly tortured.

This action angered many Nigerians, who asked Mrs Buhari to release the man or charge him in court.

On Tuesday, the student was charged to court by the police, and he was remanded in the Suleja correctional facility in Niger State, pending when his bail application would be heard next Wednesday.

According to his lawyer, Mr C.K. Agu, the student was arraigned before a court sitting in Abuja, but he pleaded not guilty to the charges levelled against him.

“Even in the court session yesterday, we notified the judge about the efforts made to have him released on bail, but we did not receive any reply from the police.

“We applied to the court to release the student on bail on health grounds and the fact that he will sit for the exam on December 5.

“The court has ordered the police to provide the bail application before it for consideration between Tuesday and Wednesday,” Mr Agu informed BBC Hausa Service.

On June 9, 2022, Mr Adamu posted a picture of Mrs Aisha Buhari at the presidential primary of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in Abuja held two days earlier and wrote in the Hausa language, “Su mama anchi kudin talkawa ankoshi,” which loosely means “Mama is feeding fat on poor people’s money.”
