The Water and Environment society is for engineers with an interest in the environmental and water aspects of civil engineering.
Researchers have found minuscule shreds of plastic everywhere – in rivers and lakes, at the bottom of the sea, on the tallest mountain on earth, blowing in the wind and moving through our food chain. Now they’re trying to find out how all this plastic is affecting human health.
For electric vehicles to become mainstream, they need cost-effective, safer, longer-lasting batteries that won't explode during use or harm the environment. Researchers may have found a promising alternative to conventional lithium-ion batteries made from a common material: rubber.
Researchers argue the plant could provide multiple benefits for California, including desalinated water and clean hydrogen fuel.
Self-driving Roboats, developed at MIT, set sea in Amsterdam canals.
Many different environmental reports set out to achieve different aims, and it is easy to get lost in a sea of acronyms. Marie Louise Heffernan guides you through the maze as she focuses on two key areas relevant to engineers – Environmental Impact Assessment and Appropriate Assessment.
Desalination is the answer to long-term water security, but it’s also expensive and energy-intensive. The good news is that scientists are developing some viable solutions.
