fter their lifecycle, EV batteries should ideally end up in recycling. However, lithium-ion batteries are difficult to safely discard, especially in comparison to lead-acid batteries used in fossil fuel vehicles. Why is this the case?
Adding to the importance of this ecosystem is a new study, which has highlighted the economic benefits that mangrove restoration and conservation may yield in the long term.
One of the reasons for the increasing support for this shift from non-renewable fuel-powered vehicles towards electric motors is that the latter is deemed to be better for the environment in more ways than one. But is that really the case? What makes electric vehicles better? Should we ditch our present vehicles and get an electric variant instead?
When lignocellulose is broken down and reassembled, it can lead to creating new and usable materials.
The quantity of ice melt could cover the entire UK with 15 metres of meltwater. The runoff from 2011 to 2020 has also contributed to the increase of global sea levels by one centimetre.
Human lives are in constant movement from one point to another. Most of us believe that the price we pay for our transport, even personal transport, is all it costs. However, there may be hidden external costs that we are not aware of.
Infant feces showed 10 times more PET microplastics as compared to the adult samples. Average levels of microplastics in both age groups were similar.
A key part of the solution to the problem of dying coral reefs could be reforestation and better land management. This could help reduce the sediment run-off from land to sea, thus building resilience and supporting growth, says a new study.
Is biodegradable plastic the solution we have been looking for? Or is it simply too good to be true? Two studies conducted in Germany found two results that can help start constructing a picture.
Sunlight may be breaking down marine plastics into thousands of chemical compounds. The chemical breakdown of marine plastic due to sunlight could be taking mere weeks.
