E-Waste: crude recycling contaminate air, water and soilTags: arizona state university
[Source: ScienceDaily] - A proposal under debate in the U.S. Congress to ban the export of electronics waste would likely make a growing global environmental problem even worse, say authors of an article from the journal Environmental Science and Technology.
The authors call into question conventional thinking that trade bans can prevent "backyard recycling" of electronics waste -- primarily old and obsolete computers -- in developing countries.
Primitive recycling processes used in these countries are dispersing materials and pollutants that are contaminating air, water and soil.
Now available: “Arizona’s Bioscience Roadmap 2014-2025: Advancing the Biosciences and Improving Health Outcomes,” is now available along with its supplement, “Summary of Goals, Strategies, and Potential Actions.” An overview by Walter Plosila, Ph.D., Battelle senior advisor, is also available. The updated Roadmap provides a long-term strategy for Arizona to achieve bioscience success over the next decade.
