TREATING & PURIFYING WATER USING COCONUT SHELL FIBRE

Coconut shell drinking water treatment 25 February 2011 Siemens Water Technologies has developed a coconut shell-based carbon for drinking water treatment. AquaCarb 1240CAT, which Siemens says is superior to the catalytic carbon used in water treatment, can provide improved results in water quality targets for chloramine, hydrogen sulphide (H2S), and hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) removal. The […]

SPRAYING IRON IN ANTARCTICA CREATES GREEN GARDENS OF ALGAE TO COMBAT CLIMATE CHANGE

MAN MADE ALGAE IN ANTARCTICA BENEFITS CLIMATE CHANGE The seas around Antarctica can, at times, resemble a garden. Large-scale experiments where scientists spray iron into the waters, literally fertilizing phytoplankton, have created huge man-made algal blooms. Such geoengineering experiments produce diatoms, which pull carbon dioxide out of the air. Experts argue that this practice can […]
