  • Biodiversity slows spread of pesticide resistance

    The ability of organisms to adapt to toxic chemicals like pesticides is essential for their survival, but also an agricultural annoyance. This study shows that interactions between different species can delay the development of pesticide resistance and therefore suggests that biodiversity supports effective pest management. When pest species are exposed to toxic chemicals, like pesticides, they ...

  • Development of a new ceramic membrane resistant to abrasion

    We are pleased to present you a new concept of membrane, specially dedicated to severe applications, where abrasion is a concern. WHAT FOR? In numerous applications, specially in MF and UF, the retentate contains highly abrasive particles. These particles, because of the high velocity of the retentate liquid, damage the membranes, thus reducing the lifetime. ...

  • EFSA adopts opinion on antibiotic resistant bacteria

    EFSA’s Panel on Biological Hazards (BIOHAZ) has adopted an opinion on the role of food consumption and processing in human exposure to antimicrobial resistant (AMR) bacteria, an emerging biological hazard caused in part by the use of antimicrobial agents throughout the food chain, from the farm to the fork. The opinion, “Foodborne antimicrobial resistance as a biological hazard”, says that the ...

  • At UN, global leaders commit to act on antimicrobial resistance

    World leaders today signalled an unprecedented level of attention to curb the spread of infections that are resistant to antimicrobial medicines. Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) happens when bacteria, viruses, parasites, and fungi develop resistance against medicines that were previously able to cure them. For the first time, Heads of State  ...

  • Callitris tuberculata: the most drought-resistant tree in the world
