Every year, nearly 7 million people die as a result of air pollution around the world. Airports, according to McGill University experts, are hotspots for airborne contaminants that are harmful to human health and the climate. Researchers looked examined air pollution at three major...

Photocatalysts with built-in electric field helps to remove pollutants from water

Prof. Wu Zhengyan and his research team from the Hefei Institutes of Physical Science of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) have recently introduced a high-efficiency Z-scheme photocatalyst to deal with contaminants in water. The study was published in ACS Applied Nano Materials. Rapid industrialization...

Air pollution significantly reduces pollination in plants

Air pollutants from urban and rural environments are reducing the pollinating abilities of insects. It prevents them from sniffing out the crops and wildflowers that depend on them. University of Reading, UK Centre for Ecology & Hydrology and University of Birmingham scientists have found out...
