    Science & Technology Key for Better Indoor Air Quality

    To keep our minds sharp and our bodies healthy, we need to breathe in approximately 18kg of air a day. This is a lot of air, especially when you consider that we eat just 1.3kg of food and drink 1.4kg of water per day. A large proportion of this air is consumed within buildings that we live, work and sleep in, in fact, a report from the European Commission indicates that Europeans now spend up to 90% of their time inside.

Pollution

Latest sewage statistics show water companies in England and Wales are treading water on sewage pollution and the Government's Defra's plan just threatens more stagnation, state The Rivers Trust as they update their popular online maps to display how Combined Sewage Overflows (CSOs) are performing with raw sewage releases into your local waterways.

The United Nations Environment Assembly (UNEA) yesterday agreed one of the most significant policies ever to protect the world from the plague of plastic pollution, a key campaigner for the treaty, The Environmental Investigation Agency (EIA), write:

The ecological food-web of freshwaters may be adversely affected as new research reveals swirling river waters can trap lightweight microplastics that otherwise might be expected to float – depositing them in riverbeds where it can take up to seven years to transport them just a kilometre further towards the ocean.

Drainage and wastewater specialist Lanes Group has been supporting firefighters and the Environment Agency as they dealt with the aftermath of a huge industrial blaze in Worcestershire close to an ecologically rich canal.

To mark Earth Day the Ocean Legacy Foundation have launched EPIC Academy - a free online educational platform providing communities with knowledge regarding ocean plastic pollution, cleanup efforts, and solutions for creating plastic-free environments.

Highways England has launched a study into whether surface water which runs off roads affects the level of microplastics in the environment.

The concept design for a vessel and recovery system to remove surface plastic flotsam from rivers in South East Asia has been completed by Longitude Engineering, a marine industry specialist and member company of the LOC Group.

COVID-19 has devastated lives and communities and will have a horrendous impact on the economy, but it has also revealed some environmental truths that we as humans may not want to hear. Lockdown is showing us that our lifestyles, in the main our reliance on motorised methods of transportation, have an insidious and detrimental impact on our environment and ultimately our health... Rob Lillywhite, from the School of Life Sciences at the University of Warwick reviews the impacts of covid-19 and the environment, from transport, noise pollution and aerial pollutants.

Research presented at the Plastic Health Summit in Amsterdam will reveal immune cells that recognise and attack microplastics will die quickly as a result of the contact.

A charity, Salmon & Trout Conservation (S&TC), who campaign to reverse the effects of industrialisation on the UK's rivers has commented on Ofwat imposing the biggest fine ever on a water company for "significant breaches of its licence conditions and its statutory duties." They write....
