Research Progress on Global trade network of waste polyethylene plastics
Recently, the Resource Cycle and Urban Metabolism Research Group of the Institute of Urban Environment, Chinese Academy of Sciences has made progress in the research on the global trade network pattern of polyethylene (PE) plastic waste.
The largest semi underground sewage treatment plant in Asia
Recently, the wastewater treatment plant in the relocation project of Tianjin eastern suburb sewage treatment plant and reclaimed water plant, which was jointly constructed by CSCEC, has officially put into commercial operation.
Advances in nitrogen removal function of different types of wetlands in Wuhan Botanical Garden
Wetlands enjoy the reputation of the "Kidney of the Earth" and have attracted global attention in terms of intercepting pollutants and improving water quality. Wetlands can reduce nitrogen pollution through various means such as plant absorption, soil fixation, and soil microbial processes (including denitrification and anaerobic ammonia oxidation).
Progress in the research and development of new materials for ecological environment governance
The institute of soil and water conservation (ISWC) has made a series of progress in the research and development of new materials for ecological environment governance
Progress in chlorination of high / low activity cyanobacteria cells in the urban environment
This study revealed for the first time that changes in the activity of cyanobacterial cells will directly affect the chlorination process, providing an important reference for drinking water plants to apply chlorination to treat high-algae water.
New Progress in Research on Mercury-Contaminated Farmland Treatment
Researchers at the Institute of Geochemistry of the Chinese Academy of Sciences have constructed a plan to adjust agricultural planting structure in contaminated areas by screening native crops with low accumulated mercury.
3D Porous Materials Developed for High Efficiency Separation of Radioactive Waste
In a study published in Environ. Chem. Lett., a research group led by Prof. YANG Fan from Fujian Institute of Research on the Structure of Matter (FJIRSM) of the Chinese Academy of sciences developed a series of three-dimensional (3D) porous materials for specific adsorption of radionuclides.
IUE makes progress in the treatment of antibiotic pollution by freshwater microalgae
the Environmental Biotechnology Group of the Institute of Urban Environment, Chinese Academy of Sciences has explored the application of freshwater microalgae systems to remove multiple antibiotics.
Progress in the study on the transport characteristics of gaseous elemental mercury
the Xiao Hang team of the Institute of Urban Environment of the Chinese Academy of Sciences conducted elementary mercury observation research in the coastal area of Ningbo City. The results of the study indicate that the alternation of sea and land air masses is the main cause of fluctuations in elemental mercury concentration.
Tiny polymer springs give a boost to environmental cleanup
Cleaning up groundwater is no small job, but a team of Princeton researchers is on a mission to make it simpler — using microscopic springs.
Researchers Firstly Prepare Core-shell-structure Activated Carbon Composites
Accoeding to the reaserchers, test of adsorption confirmed that CSAC/CSGAC can effectively remove emerging organic contaminants, such as sulfamethoxazole, bisphenol A, etc.
Engineered enzyme able to break down PET in ten hours
A team of researchers from TBI, Université de Toulouse, CRITT Bio-Industries and Carbios, Biopôle Clermont Limagne, has engineered a commonly known enzyme to efficiently break the chains that hold the building blocks of polyethylene terephthalate (PET) together.
Progress in the study of net methane emissions in the Arctic
The researchers integrated the kinetics of high-affinity methane oxidizing bacteria (HAMs; methane-oxidizing bacteria) and methanogens recently discovered in Arctic mineral soils into a biogeochemical model that includes the dynamics of permafrost soil organic carbon.
