By creating neatly spaced slits in a clay mineral, University of Groningen Professor of Experimental Solid State Physics Petra Rudolf was able to filter water to remove a toxic herbicide. After removing the pollutant by heating the material, the clay can be reused. Together with colleagues from ...
Monash University researchers have developed technology that can deliver clean water to thousands of communities worldwide
An estimated 844 million people don't have access to clean water, while every minute a newborn dies from infection caused by lack of safe water and an unclean environment. Seawater desalination and wastewater recycling are two ways to ease the problem of water shortage, but conventional ...
Many wastewater treatment plants do not completely remove chemical substances from wastewater.
Microcontaminants place a considerable burden on our water courses, but removing them from wastewater requires considerable technical resources. Now, ETH researchers have developed an approach that allows the efficient removal of these problematic substances. In our everyday lives, we all use a ...
Another potential -- and renewable -- tool to fight harmful algal blooms
Scientists at The University of Toledo have discovered that rice husks can effectively remove microcystin from water, a finding that could have far-reaching implications for communities along the Great Lakes and across the developing world. An abundant and inexpensive agricultural byproduct, rice ...
"Water & Chemistry" - First main topic at the 3rd European Chemistry Partnering
On 26 February 2019 the 3rd European Chemistry Partnering (ECP) will take place in Frankfurt. For the first time at the ECP there will be interdisciplinary lectures, including "Water & Chemistry". The Isle Group, which specializes in the selection of innovative technologies and implementation ...
Rice University scientists are developing technology to remove contaminants from water - but only as many as necessary. The Rice lab of engineer Qilin Li is building a treatment system that can be tuned to selectively pull toxins from drinking water and wastewater from factories, sewage systems ...
Distribution agreement signed with Burkut
The Liquid Purification Technologies (LPT) business unit of the specialty chemicals company LANXESS plans to expand its business with reverse osmosis membrane elements in Turkey. Correspondingly, LPT signed a distribution agreement with the Turkish Burkut INC, Izmir, regarding the sale of ...
Another group of 10 start-ups and chemical researchers will see their ideas move a step closer to commercialization after being named winners of the 2018 edition of AkzoNobel Specialty Chemicals' Imagine Chemistry challenge. Imagine Chemistry was launched to help solve real-life chemistry-related ...
A polymer mat developed at Rice University has the ability to fish biologically harmful contaminants from water through a strategy known as "bait, hook and destroy." Tests with wastewater showed the mat can efficiently remove targeted pollutants, in this case a pair of biologically harmful ...
According to the World Health Organization almost 1 billion people do not have access to clean drinking water, and that number is expected to increase with climate change. Meanwhile, our endlessly rising energy needs and use of heavy metals in industrial processes have maximized our exposure to ...
