UK advanced technologies manufacturer BOC Edwards has installed its novel Electrochemically Regenerated Ion Exchange (ERIX) wastewater treatment system at the University of Albany's NanoTech complex in the U.S. The article says that ERIX's ion exchange media can be electrically regenerated,...
India’s Thiruvananthapuram-based Eram Scientific Solutions Ltd. has developed the country’s first electronic, portable, public use toilet. The devices are automatic, convert human waste to biological charcoal, and are similar to e-toilets being used in other developing countries. It has a bio-membrane...
The Israel National Nanotechnology Initiative (INNI) website says that Israel is, and will continue to be, at the forefront of nanotechnological innovation. The website says: "Nanotechnology is a natural enabler for Israel. In fact, our small size is also our advantage - it means sharper focus,...
Researchers from Thailand have coated ceramic and stone with titanium dioxide nanoparticles to eliminate moss and bacteria from water in fish tanks. According to the article, “The technology can be applied for use in aquariums and commercial fish ponds to reduce the cost of water treatment and...
This blog entry says that advanced nanotechnology can potentially improve the efficiency of water distribution in developing countries, specifically in agriculture. The entry quotes an article from the Associated Press entitled <a href="http://www.forbes.com/home/feeds/ap/2006/03/18/ap2604848.html">Water...
Researchers from Israel and the U.S. are collaborating on four nanotechnology-based water treatment projects focused on membranes and membrane processes, biofouling and disinfection, contaminants removal, and environmental monitoring and sensors. The article says that water purification is one of "the...
The article addresses the possibility of using nanotechnology to solve the shortage of clean, affordable water in the Third World. The World Health Organization estimates that nearly two billion people will live in areas with absolute water shortages by 2025. Nanotechnology could help alleviate the...
A new study, published this week in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, show that alumina nanoparticles can increase the development of antibiotic resistance among bacteria by as much as 200-fold. Nanoalumina has been used to remove contaminants from water. Researchers predict that...
Engineers at Oregon State University (OSU), United States, have discovered that by using a new coating on the anodes of microbial electrochemical cells, they can increase electricity production by 20 times. Such technology could allow biowaste to be cleaned while producing useful levels of electricity...
The Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) in Madras, India, has filed a patent for a nanotechnology-based process that will remove dye and odors from the wastewater of textile factories and other industries. Textile factories are water-intensive and emit fat, oil, chemicals, and dye into wastewater leaving...
