Millions of litres of primary municipal wastewater can be treated sustainably using fast-growing willow trees while also producing renewable bioenergy and ‘green’ chemicals
Every year in Canada, six trillion litres of municipal wastewater are partially treated and released into the environment, while another 150 billion litres of untreated sewage are discharged straight into pristine surface waters. Now researchers have found a way to stem that flow: by filtering ...
A new study by Simon Fraser University's Faculty of Health Sciences researchers found correlations between increased expressions of autistic-like behaviours in pre-school aged children to gestational exposure to select environmental toxicants, including metals, pesticides, polychlorinated ...
New technique detects minute particles of plastics in snow, rain and even soil
The snow may be melting, but it is leaving pollution behind in the form of micro- and nano-plastics according to a McGill study that was recently published in Environmental Pollution. The pollution is largely due to the relatively soluble plastics found in antifreeze products (polyethylene ...
New experimental findings cast in doubt 90-year-old theoretical model of the transition state in chemical reactions
Research by a team of chemists at the University of Toronto, led by Nobel Prize-winning researcher John Polanyi, is shedding new light on the behaviour of molecules as they collide and exchange atoms during chemical reaction. The discovery casts doubt on a 90-year old theoretical model of the ...
A research team has developed a process for the electrolytic treatment of wastewater that degrades microplastics at the source
A research team from the Institut national de la recherche scientifique (INRS) has developed a process for the electrolytic treatment of wastewater that degrades microplastics at the source. The results of this research have been published in the Environmental Pollution journal. Wastewater can ...
thyssenkrupp to install 88 megawatt water electrolysis plant for Hydro-Québec in Canada
thyssenkrupp Uhde Chlorine Engineers' Green Hydrogen product division has been awarded an engineering contract in order to install an 88 megawatt (MW) water electrolysis plant for Canadian energy company Hydro-Québec after successfully completing a feasibility study. Hydro-Québec, a state-owned ...
Brenntag has signed an agreement to acquire Alpha Chemical Ltd. Alpha Chemical, headquartered in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, Canada, is a full-line chemical distributor with a focus on several key industries including Oil & Gas, Mining, Water Treatment and Aquaculture. Lars Schneider, President ...
International research team to modify the properties of graphene for its use in electronics
An international research team involving Professor Federico Rosei of the Institut national de la recherche scientifique (INRS) has demonstrated a novel process to modify the structure and properties of graphene, a one atom thick carbon. This chemical reaction, known as photocycloaddition, ...
York University researchers have discovered a way to make Lithium-powered batteries more environmentally friendly while retaining performance, stability and storage capacity. Lithium-ion batteries use toxic, heavy metals which can impact the environment when they are extracted from the ground and ...
Boon for the making of pharmaceuticals and electronics
Macrocycles are molecules made of large rings of atoms. Despite being relatively big and flexible, the molecules don't always stay "floppy" -- they can actually lock themselves into specific shapes and geometries. In manufacturing, controlling the three-dimensional shapes of macrocycles is ...
