Burying Carbon Dioxide in Deep-sea Sediments "Safe and Permanent[Jul 09, 2018]

Chinese scientists have found that burying carbon dioxide in marine sediment in deep sea is "generally safe and permanent," giving support to the way to capture and store the green house gas. A team from Peking University explored storing carbon dioxide in deep-sea sediments and found that extreme conditions at the bottom of the ocean help hold the gas in place.

Scientists Make Breakthrough in Arsenic-reducing Filtration Technology[Jul 05, 2018]

A team comprising researchers from China Medical University and the University of Hawaii on Wednesday unveiled their new breakthrough in water filtration technology at the ongoing 7th International Congress & Exhibition on "Arsenic in the environment." They managed to produce a filtration medium which has been certified to effectively reduce arsenic V to below U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the World Health Organization (WHO) advisory levels of 10 parts per billion (ppb).
