  • Indian arsenic clean-up `working well`

    A new chemical-free method to remove arsenic from water is working well in pilot plants in India, scientists report. The method, developed by a team of European and Indian scientists, was tested in six plants set up to supply safe arsenic-free water to Kasimpore village in India's West Bengal state, one of the most arsenic-contaminated sites in the world. An estimated 140 million people in Asia ...

  • Solving history’s ‘largest mass poisoning’

    Researchers in MIT’s Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering believe they have pinpointed a pathway by which arsenic may be contaminating the drinking water in Bangladesh, a phenomenon that has puzzled scientists, world health agencies and the Bangladeshi government for nearly 30 years. The research suggests that human alteration to the landscape, the construction of villages with ...

  • High arsenic levels in Asian rice could be reduced through improved irrigation practices

    High levels of arsenic in rice could be reduced by applying improved irrigation management practices in Asia, FAO says in a new report entitled Remediation of Arsenic for Agriculture Sustainability, Food Security and Health in Bangladesh. Studies have shown that high concentrations of arsenic in soil and irrigation water often lead to high levels of arsenic in crops and are posing an increased ...
