High levels of estrogens discovered in some industrial wastewater
In a groundbreaking study, civil engineering researchers in the University of Minnesota`s Institute of Technology have discovered that certain industries may be a significant source of plant-based estrogens, called phytoestrogens, in surface water. They also revealed that some of these phytoestrogens can be removed through standard wastewater treatment, but in some cases, the compounds remain at levels that may be damaging to fish.
Civil engineering associate professor Paige Novak and her graduate student researcher Mark Lundgren studied wastewater streams from 19 different industrial sites in ...
Consequences of climate change and flood protection
As a city on the tide-exposed Elbe, the risk of flooding for Hamburg, is ever-present, particularly from storm floods. Around one-third of the city area is regarded as being at risk of flooding. Holger Poser, Head of Department of Disaster Management and Civil Protection
