  • Can trading pollution like stocks help fight climate change?

    The gas produced by hog manure at farms across the U.S. punches holes in the ozone layer, overheats the planet, and angers neighbors with its peculiar odor, a mix of rotten egg and ammonia. All that's needed to clear the air is to cover the manure with a system of tarps that captures the gas, but many farms don't do it because it's too expensive. "If you don't give people incentives to come up ...

  • Adsorption of As, B, Cr, Mo and Se from coal fly ash leachate by Fe3+ modified bentonite clay

    Fly ash contains the potentially toxic elements As, B, Cr, Mo and Se which upon contact with water may be leached to contaminate surface and subsurface water bodies. This study aims to evaluate the adsorption of these elements from coal fly ash leachates on Fe3+-modified bentonite (Fe-Bent); such modification improved the physicochemical properties of bentonite clay. For optimization of ...
