  • Runoff research promotes healthier aquifers

    Where rain falls can influence the quality of surface water before it enters underground reservoirs, some of which provide water that eventually comes out of our taps. That's one conclusion from a collaborative study by the Agricultural Research Service (ARS) and the University of Arizona (UA). The ARS and UA scientists are investigating how urban landscapes influence storm runoff and water ...

  • Combining brine management with carbon capture

    Water shortages are an urgent issue in many areas of the world and it is likely that the construction of desalination plants will increase to meet the rising demand for fresh water. A new study has evaluated a combined process to manage both the brine by-product from desalination plants and capture carbon dioxide. Desalination separates seawater (or inland saline or salty water) into fresh water ...

  • China: solid and hazardous waste management

    Solid waste management, including hazardous waste and electronics waste treatment, has become a key environmental priority in China. The lack of adequate waste treatment facilities and decades of poor management practices, particularly with respect to hazardous wastes, have combined to create a serious threat not only to the environment but also to public health. China’s solid waste can be ...
