Study: Showering boosts concentrations of potentially hazardous trihalomethanes

CHAPEL HILL -- Trihalomethanes -- byproducts of interaction between chlorine used to disinfect water and organic matter found in raw water -- increase significantly in the bloodstream after showering, a new study shows. Public health experts suspect the chemicals may boost the risk of cancer an...

Engineers develop odour eaters for pulp mills

...echniques that use bacteria to "eat" air pollutant byproducts from the pulp process and thereby filter out the smell. "All industrial processes have air emissions and, in the case of pulp and paper mills, the smell can be quite overwhelming. This biofilter operates like a mini ecosystem. It's a microbial commun...
