  • Taste and odour events linked with Cyanobacteria

    A study documents a correlation between cyanobacteria levels in source water and taste and odour events in drinking water. An outcome is that the level of blue-green algae affected the concentration of 2-methylisoborneol (MIB), the compound frequently associated with taste and odour events, and concluded that these events may be averted or minimised by monitoring reservoirs, lakes, rivers and ...

  • How much phosphorus pollution makes lakes unsafe for recreation?

    A target level of 20 micrograms of phosphorus per litre of lake water could help keep many lakes safe for recreation by restricting the growth of harmful algal blooms, European research suggests. The scientists analysed the relationship between phosphorus levels in medium- and high-alkalinity lakes, the growth of cyanobacteria blooms and the concentrations of cyanobacteria that trigger World ...

  • Future for clean energy lies in “Big Bang” of evolution

    Amid mounting agreement that future clean, “carbon-neutral”, energy will rely on efficient conversion of the sun’s light energy into fuels and electric power, attention is focusing on one of the most ancient groups of organism, the cyanobacteria. Dramatic progress has been made over the last decade understanding the fundamental reaction of photosynthesis that evolved in cyanobacteria 3.7 billion ...

  • Plants provide ‘green liver’ by removing water toxins

    Blue-green algae, or ‘aquatic cyanobacteria’, can produce harmful toxins and present a serious health hazard when they bloom in large numbers. Researchers from Germany have now identified plant species that could be used to sustainably treat water by removing such cyanobacterial toxins. Cyanobacteria are common in water bodies with high nutrient load. Some cyanobacteria can ...

  • Modified plant clears up deadly water toxin

    Plants may be a useful tool in clearing water of harmful toxins produced by blue-green algae, new research indicates. Some blue-green algae (cyanobacteria) — which grow in warm, nutrient-rich waters  — produce toxins that can severely damage the liver or nervous system. The effects of the toxins range from a mild illness to rapid death. They can remain in water supplies after the algae have been ...
