  • Water
  • Professor Huai-Yong Zhu from QUT Chemistry said the world-first intelligent adsorbent, which uses titanate nanofibre and nanotube technology, differed from current clean-up methods, such as layered clays and zeolites, because it could efficiently lock in deadly radioactive material from contaminated water. (healthcanal.com)
  • The technology, which was developed in collaboration with the Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation (ANSTO) and Pennsylvania State University in America, works by running the contaminated water through the fine nanotubes and fibres, which trap the radioactive Cesium (Cs+) ions through a structural change.

  • Poor water management standards have raised health concerns in many cities, and water safety also is doubtful in the countryside, where 59 percent of the population draws water from common wells affected by groundwater pollution. (country-studies.com)
  • The structure of environmental spending remained substantially the same as it was in 1980: some 58 percent went for protection of water resources, 24 percent for prevention of air pollution, 7 percent for forest management, and only 0.04 percent for nature preserves and species protection (see table 5, Appendix).

  • In most subnational jurisdictions, water pollution receives the most investment because of uniformly serious water conditions. (country-studies.com)
  • Radiation (8): If you live downstream or downwind from a nuclear set up or are subjected to very low amounts of radioactive air pollution, you're going to be joyful to recognize that N.A.S.A. scientists Rebecca McCaleb and B. C. Wolverton have realized "outstanding ends in the usage of alligatorweed, cattail reeds, and tomatoes inside the de-contamination of radioactive soils and water. (jiliblog.com)
  • minerals
  • The Calcium binds the radioactive minerals, as it might from the human digestive method, and carries them down into the bottom h2o, below the root methods of many crop vegetation. (jiliblog.com)
  • fuels
  • In cities, air may be severely polluted not only by transportation but also by the burning of fossil fuels (oil and coal) in generating stations, factories, office buildings, and homes and by the incineration of garbage. (questia.com)
  • In less developed regions, indoor air pollution from open fires burning wood and other fuels for heating and cooking can be a significant health hazard. (questia.com)
  • contributes
  • Scientists know that poor air quality contributes to serious damage to your heart, lungs and other organ systems, significantly shortening your life. (mercola.com)
  • smog
  • Titled " Under the Dome ," the documentary captures the filmmaker's experience as a concerned parent living among the dense smog of Beijing, and investigates the sources of the devastating pollution. (inhabitat.com)
  • amounts
  • The plan was for traffic police to stop vehicles randomly on roads leading into the city of London, the officer would then measure the amounts of air pollutants being released using a CO 2 measuring reader fixed in the owner's vehicle's exhaust. (everything2.com)
  • emission
  • Section 202(a)(1) of the Clean Air Act, 42 U.S.C. § 7521(a)(1), requires the Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency ("EPA") to set emission standards for "any air pollutant" from motor vehicles or motor vehicle engines "which in his judgment cause[s], or contribute[s] to, air pollution which may reasonably be anticipated to endanger public health or welfare. (wikisource.org)
  • winds
  • In the past, severe pollution in London during 1952 added with low winds and high-pressure air had taken more than four thousand lives and another seven hundred in 1962, in what was called the 'Dark Years' because of the dense dark polluted air. (everything2.com)
  • broader
  • Unlike most environmental studies, which focus solely on a single topic (i.e., global warming or ocean pollution), Steffen's team takes a broader look at how human activity impacts the global environment, using the concept of "planetary boundaries," first introduced in 2009. (wsws.org)
  • breathe
  • Your body is dependent on the air you breathe and poor air quality can cause serious damage to your lungs, heart and other organ systems. (mercola.com)

  • 1 But, your body is dependent on the air you breathe to sustain health and life. (mercola.com)
  • We have always suspected that nanoparticles in the air that we breathe in could escape from the lungs and enter the body, but until now there was no proof. (mercola.com)
  • Almost any toxic chemical could make its way into the atmosphere to pollute the air that we breathe. (environmentalpollutioncenters.org)
  • Ambient Air
  • To address these issues experimentally, we exposed laboratory mice in situ to ambient air in a polluted industrial area near steel mills. (pnas.org)
  • Sections of shed walls (1.2 × 1.6 m) were replaced with hardware cloth (1.5 × 1.5-cm mesh), which allowed flow-through of ambient air. (pnas.org)
