  • Analysis and dissipation of the antiparasitic agent ivermectin in cattle dung under different field conditions

    Cattle treated with the veterinary parasiticide ivermectin (IVM) fecally excrete residues. Here we report the exposition and dissipation characteristics of these residues in dung of IVM‐treated cattle, and in soil beneath this dung, on pastures including Canada, France, Switzerland, and The Netherlands. Residues were quantified for dung collected from cattle after 3, 7, 14, and 28 d post‐ ...

  • Degradation and transformation of 17α‐trenbolone in aerobic water‐sediment systems

    Synovex® ONE is an extended‐release implant containing the active ingredients estradiol benzoate (EB) and trenbolone acetate (TBA) for use in beef steers and heifers. TBA is rapidly hydrolyzed in cattle to form 17β‐trenbolone and its isomer, 17α‐trenbolone, which are further transformed to a secondary metabolite, trendione. As part of the environmental assessment for the use of Synovex® ONE, ...

  • Removal of Pb2+ and Fe3+ from water using N-TiO2 blended copolymer grafted asymmetric membranes

    The aim of this study was to evaluate the photo-catalytic properties of nitrogen-doped titanium dioxide nano-particles supported on polymer membranes in the photo-reduction of Fe3+ and Pb2+ from synthetic wastewater. The morphology of the prepared N-TiO2 nanoparticles was evaluated using transmission electron microscopy. Successful grafting of methacrylic acid side chains onto ...

  • New study finds recycled phosphorus could fertilize 100 percent of U.S. corn

    The world has a problem. A phosphorus problem. Needed to fertilize crops, the bulk of phosphorus comes from nonrenewable phosphate rock. While China mines the most — producing almost half the world’s phosphorus — Morocco alone controls three-fourths of global phosphate rock reserves. Year by year those global reserves ...

  • More water flows from Western Sudan as virtual water than the flow of the River Nile in former Sudan

    This study argues that by mobilising ‘social resources’, communities in water-scarce, semi-arid areas can not only successfully sustain a livelihood, but they can also play an important role in the water budget of their semi-arid regions. The pastoralist communities in the Darfur region of west Sudan utilise the limited volumes of green – root-zone – water in the soil to rear livestock. They ...

  • Evaluation of water demand and supply in the south of Iraq

    This paper presents results from the first study that focuses on water resources availability and demand for different purposes in the four oil-rich provinces of southern Iraq. The region accounts for 23% of the surface area and 18% of the country's population, but holds 88% of its oil. A water shortage of 430 Mm3/year for 2010 is estimated for this region where irrigation accounts for 81% of ...

  • Removal of humic acid from composted hog waste by the white-rot fungus, Phanerochaete chrysosporium

    The potential hazards of humic acid (HA) associated with hog waste effluent, coupled with increasing awareness of environmental problems, have prompted many countries to control disposal of effluents into water bodies and to maximize removal of HA. Here we employed the white-rot fungus, Phanerochaete chrysosporium, to degrade the HA in composted hog waste effluent, evaluated by the response ...

  • Main Applications of Truck Mounted ULV Fogger

    A fogger is a machine which distributes chemicals such as insecticide or disinfectant into an area by means of a fine spray for killing insects and other arthropods. They are often used by consumers as a low-cost alternative to professional pest control services. The number of fogger needed for pest control depends on the size of the space needed to treat. There are different types of ...

  • Saving Morocco’s endangered Barbary macaques

    Morocco’s Barbary macaque shouldn’t be endangered — the small primates native to North Africa reproduce well, consume a diverse omnivorous diet and can survive cold snowy winters that turn into blistering hot summers. And yet, according to the International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources, this hearty and ...

  • We only have one Earth, so we better start taking care of it.

    Clocks are ticking, and the only planet we have to live on is changing right before our eyes. What are we going to do about it? We are all connected. Farmer or finance minister, president or plumber, we share the same home — this single, living planet. It’s the only home we have. And from my perspective it’s in dire need of attention. ...

  • Have Your Steak and Eat It, Too

    In our recent feature, “Has Meat Met Its Match?,” writer Rowan Jacobsen explores ways people can (now and possibly in the future) reduce the environmental and food security impacts of their diets, including entomophagy (bug-eating), synthetic meat and vegetarian substitutes. If none of those fits your needs, there are plenty of other ways ...

  • Eco-physiological characteristics of Pistia stratiotes and its removal of pollutants from livestock wastewater

    The effectiveness of water lettuce in removing pollutants including organic pollutants, nitrogen (NH3-N) and total phosphorus (TP) from livestock wastewater along with the physiological effects and their correlations, was studied for the first time. The results showed that the water lettuce had higher removal efficiency with low concentrations of livestock wastewater. The removal efficiency of ...

  • Removal of 2-methylisoborneol from aqueous solution by cattle manure compost (CMC) derived activated carbons

    The objective of this study is the synthesis of activated carbon derived from cattle manure compost (CMC) causing environmental problems using zinc chloride (ZnCl2) activation and to examine the suitability and performance of the prepared activated carbon (PAC) in removing 2-methylisoborneol (2-MIB) from aqueous solution. The influence of ZnCl2/CMC ratios and outgassing from the PACs on ...

  • Keeping track of the cup – M2M for coffee machines

    At Microtronics we do not only live M2M but also drink coffee. So of course we painted our coffee machine in Microtronics yellow and equipped it with intelligent technology. As hobby baristas it is especially exciting to us using the Cuptracker to monitor how many litres of coffee are flowing through the Microtronics team’s veins. Coffee machine manufacturers get even more benefits by ...

  • Integrated assessment of runoff from livestock farming operations: Analytical chemistry, in vitro bioassays, and in vivo fish exposures

    Animal waste from livestock farming operations (LFOs) can contain varying levels of natural and synthetic androgens and/or estrogens, which can contaminate surrounding waterways. In the present study, surface stream water was collected from six basins containing LFOs. Aqueous concentrations of 12 hormones were determined via chemical analyses. Relative androgenic and estrogenic activity was ...

  • Adsorptive removal of trace oxytetracycline from water by acid-modified zeolite: influencing factors

    Because of the wide use of antibiotics in the livestock industry, trace tetracycline antibiotics are frequently detected in swine wastewater and water bodies near pig farms. Based on natural zeolite, modified zeolite was synthesized by treatment with nitric acid. As one kind of typical tetracyclines, oxytetracycline (OTC) was chosen as the target adsorbate. Removal of trace OTC by modified ...
