  • Ice sheets impact core elements of the Earth`s carbon cycle

    The Earth's carbon cycle is crucial in controlling the greenhouse gas content of our atmosphere, and ultimately our climate. Ice sheets which cover about 10 percent of our Earth's land surface at present, were thought 20 years ago to be frozen wastelands, devoid of life and with supressed chemical weathering -- irrelevant parts of the carbon cycle. Now a world-leading international team, ...

  • Wastewater Treatment in the USA

    The wastewater treatment industry is one of the largest producers of biogas in the US. However, whilst both aerobic and anaerobic systems are used for treatment, there are only about 2,000 plants that treat organic waste using anaerobic digestion; this compared to over 10,000 in Europe. Considering that only approximately 16% of these plant use the biogas to ...
