  • EU waste management policy

    Today's society generates a great deal of biodegradable waste, which causes major environmental and health problems. There are various forms of treatment to prevent and monitor those problems. The choice of the best method is based on maximising safety, minimising environmental impact and, whenever possible, obtaining recyclable end products. The best way of doing this is by biological treatment ...

  • Effluent abatement in the production of pasta filata cheeses

    GEA Filtration offers a simple and cost-effective solution for recovery of dairy solids from cooker/stretcher/mixer fluids generated during the production of pasta filata-style cheeses, such as mozzarella. Utilizing ceramic, cross-flow microfiltration (MF) technology, a substantial portion of otherwise lost dairy solids can be recovered as saleable food product and a corresponding reduction in ...

  • Plants will be a `green` source of plastics, predict scientists

    Scientists will be able to mass produce plant-based biodegradable plastic that completely degrade in landfill, new research suggests. Plants have been used to produce plastics for some time, with plastics made from plant starches and soy protein. However, scientists have recently genetically modified a plant, Arabidoposis thaliana, so that it produces an organic plastic that is similar to ...

  • Microvi and Aquatech Break Ground on Large Demonstration System at Aerojet Site in Rancho Cordova, CA

     Microvi Biotechnologies, in partnering with Aquatech International, has been awarded a contract for a demonstration system for degradation of perchlorate at Aerojet General Corporation's site near Rancho Cordova, California. The demonstration system, which was installed in April 2013, is designed to treat 175,000 gallons of groundwater per day containing perchlorate, a ...

  • How nanotubes could be released into the environment

    Carbon nanotubes (CNT) are a group of nanoparticles with remarkable physical and chemical properties. They are a promising material for a wide range of future technologies, including sports equipment, textiles and rechargeable batteries. However, questions have been raised about their safety. It is therefore important to understand how they could be unintentionally released into the environment ...

  • Cheese manufacturer Sorrento Lactalis to pay U.S. $315,000 for exceeding discharge levels into Idaho’s Mason Creek

    Cheese manufacturer Sorrento Lactalis Inc. will pay the United States a $315,000 penalty for excess discharges in violation of its wastewater permit levels, according to an agreement between the company, the Justice Department and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The company discharged the excess pollutants into Mason Creek from its factory operations in Nampa, Idaho, in violation of ...

  • New `Green` Chemistry Offers Solution to Looming Global Nitrate Crisis

    CEDAR HILL, TEXAS --- Small, minority-owned business in small Texas town is bound to become the “BAT” (best available technology) among nitrate removal technologies. Nitrates are on the increase world-over due to factors that include wastes from municipal, agricultural, and industrial processes. Health and environmental issues associated with nitrates are various and multiple, ranging from human ...


  • New wastewater treatment technology to produce less sludge

    A major environmental challenge for wastewater treatment is the disposal of excess sludge produced during the process. The LIFE Perbiof project has been developing and testing a technology that will help to overcome this challenge. Results demonstrate it can perform highly effective treatment of municipal wastewater (removing 80% of the organic content) while producing low levels of sludge. ...

  • Study Finds Ingeo™ Biopolymer Stable in Landfills with No Statistically Significant Quantity of Methane Released

    A peer-reviewed article appearing in the journal of Polymer Degradation and Stability concludes that Ingeo™ biopolymer is essentially stable in landfills with no statistically significant quantity of methane released.
