  • The environmental pyramid: a new way to deal with solid toxic waste

    Our society produces large volumes of solid waste, including toxic chemical waste. For toxic solids, the current disposal practice is to dump them into isolated, lined pits, and cover them with a water-impermeable layer with a soil layer on top. Such waste deposits require 'eternal' control and monitoring, because they eventually do leak, contaminating the surrounding soil and groundwater. Here, ...

  • Transport and fate of phosphorus during and after manure spill simulations

    Animal manure spills contribute to P loading of surface waters and little is known about the effectiveness of the current manure spill clean-up methods to mitigate P contamination. Manure spill clean-up consists of containing, removing, and land applying the contaminated water column, while P-enriched fluvial sediments remain in place. Therefore, the objectives of this study were to (i) ...
