  • Marine litter – a growing threat worldwide

    Increasing amounts of litter are ending up in the world’s oceans and harming the health of ecosystems, killing animals when they become trapped or swallow the litter. Human health is also at risk, as plastics may break down into smaller pieces that may subsequently end up in our food. These are just a few of the problems emerging from the waste collecting in our seas. There are now ...

  • Opinion: What is Marine Spatial Planning

    A SYSTEM OF INTEGRATED MARINE MANAGEMENT FOR UK WATERS The United Kingdom marine area is far greater than that of its landmass.1 The coastal areas and seas have provided convenient food, transport and waste disposal for centuries, as well as contributing to man's identity and sense of well-being. In recent years, biodiversity and the potential of biotechnologies from the oceans have ...


  • Integrated Modeling of Fate and Effects of Persistent Organic Pollutants in Marine Ecosystems

    Contaminants reach surface waters through different pathways, ranging from atmospheric deposition, infiltration in the soil during heavy rainfalls and migration with the groundwater or transport in particulate and dissolved phase in rivers. Domestic and industrial sewage water represents a major global source of pollution for surface water. Furthermore, agricultural activities may be associated ...

  • New research may solve the problem of plastic wastes

    GLOBE-Net, May 8, 2013* - Plastic - it is an indispensable part of our everyday lives and an almost indestructible part of the garbage that daily ends up in our landfills, incinerators, junk yards, in our rivers or oceans, or in the bellies of fish or animals that form part of our food chain.  Every year, over 260 million tonnes of plastic are produced globally. That is ...

  • Questions and answers on the Commission Communication `Towards a Circular Economy` and the Waste Targets Review

    What is a circular economy? A circular economy preserves the value added in products for as long as possible and virtually eliminates waste. It retains the resources within the economy when a product has reached the end of its life, so that they remain in productive use and create further value. It may involve: Increasing the time products deliver their service before ...

  • Europe’s objective: recycle more waste and send less to landfills

    Is waste a problem or a resource? Waste is both, depending on what we do with it. It is a problem because it can affect people’s health and the environment. For example, landfills are an important source of methane emissions, which is a powerful greenhouse gas contributing to climate change. Run off from landfills can contaminate ground waters and soil, which can then enter the food ...

  • Reducing coal plants effluent discharge and waste pit volumes

    The OSEI Corporation manufactures Oil Spill Eater II a first response bioremediation product that utilizes natures own process to convert hydrocarbon contaminants to CO2 by speeding up natures process to remediate hydrocarbons in a matter of days or weeks compared to waiting decades, reducing the time toxic hydrocarbons can adversely effect the environment. OSE II can quickly ...

  • Is Waste Going to be Our Apocalypse Without a Noah’s Ark to Save Us?

    Human beings have been dumping waste in water, including the ocean, since before the Agricultural Age. The Industrial Age brought with it new materials to dump, chemical wastes and by-products. Some materials are dumped into rivers and find their way to the ocean by running downstream. Other materials are dumped directly into the ocean from boats. Plastic is a harmful pollutant that does not ...

  • Uranium removal by chitosan impregnated with magnetite nanoparticles: adsorption and desorption

    A magnetic biosorbent composed of nanoparticles of magnetite covered with chitosan, denominated magnetic chitosan, was prepared. The magnetic chitosan showed a magnetic response of intense attraction in the presence of a magnetic field without becoming magnet, a typical behaviour of superparamagnetic material. Its adsorption performance was evaluated by the adsorption isotherm models of Langmuir ...

  • Circular Economy Package: Questions & Answers

    What is the Circular Economy? To ensure sustainable growth for the EU we have to use our resources in a smarter, more sustainable way. It is clear that the linear model of economic growth we relied on in the past is no longer suited for the needs of today's modern societies in a globalised world. We cannot build our future on a 'take-make-dispose' model. Many natural resources are ...

  • Reed beds facilitate transfer of tributyltin from aquatic to terrestrial ecosystems through insect vectors in the Archipelago Sea, SW Finland

    Due to their adsorptive behavior, organotin compounds (OTCs), such as tributyltin (TBT), are accumulated in aquatic sediments. They are resistant to biodegradation and, despite a ban in 2008, a potential source for future exposure. Sediment OTCs have mostly been measured from sites of known high concentrations such as ports, shipping lanes, and marine dredging waste sites. However, the possible ...
