The Supreme Court-mandated commission on water and sanitation in Sindh has directed sugar mills to install in-house effluent treatment plants to stop polluting the waterways and environment in rural areas before the crushing season 2019-20 begins.
Researchers at the Rice University, Texas have developed a water treatment system that selectively removes contaminants, an advance that could lead to cost and energy savings compared to conventional systems.
Researchers at the University of British Columbia have developed a low-cost membrane that effectively separates oil and water on demand – potentially paving the way for faster clean-ups of oil spills and improved treatment of industrial wastewater in the future.
Researchers at the University of California, Riverside have discovered a method to improve the way pollutants are removed from wastewater using Advanced Oxidation Processes (AOPs).
Researchers at MIT have developed a method to selectively remove micropollutants from polluted water.
Researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison led by professor of civil and environmental engineering Daniel Noguera are confident that ten years from now, wastewater treatment plants will look and function very differently than they do today.
