Spark it up: Municipal water can be rid of harmful substances using only electricity 16.4.2018 DNA: Mumbai
Harmful organic substances, such as pharmaceutical residues, can be efficiently removed from wastewater using only electricity, say scientists who tested a process called pulsed corona discharge (PCD). Pilot tests by researchers from Lappeenranta University of Technology (LUT) in Finland showed that pharmaceutical residues, their variants and other similar compounds degrade easily from wastewater because the process is non-selective. "It does not require the vast settling tanks needed by the traditional approach to water purification so a membrane bioreactor plant can be built cost effectively in a smaller area", explains Kimmo Arola, a researcher at LUT's department of Chemical Engineering. PCD is based on the instantaneous contact produced by an electric discharge between a plasma zone and water. In this phenomenon, water molecules and oxygen in the atmosphere create strong oxidants which degrade organic compounds into water and carbon dioxide. The study examined the formation of oxidants on the ...

Release 1,500 cusec from Narmada dam: Gujarat government 12.4.2018 DNA: India
The state government has appealed to the Narmada Control Authority (NCA) to release 1,500 cusecs of water from the Sardar Sarovar Dam towards Bharuch. The request was made to save local ecology that is dependent on the river. Deputy Chief Minister Nitin Patel said: “We have appealed to the NCA through its sub group of environment to sanction release of 1,500 cusecs of water from the Sardar Sarovar Dam towards Bharuch. This is for the flora and fauna and local ecology that is dependent on the Narmada river. Till the gates were open, the overflowing water trough from the dam would meet the requirement but since the gates have been closed, very less water flows towards the Arabian sea and that has also increased salinity ingress.” Patel said the sub group of environment would study the case and give recommendations to the NCA. “Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra and Rajasthan governments also are supposed to give their opinion on the same as they are also partner states in the project. We have requested that if ...
