Artisanal ceramic factories using wood combustion: A nanoparticles and human health study
The ceramics industry, resulting from developments of modern compounds, is a segment of great influence in worldwide sustainability. Artisanal ceramic factories based on wood combustion have significant risks for the ...
Nitrogen and metal pollution in the southern Caspian Sea: a multiple approach to bioassessment
The Caspian Sea hosts areas of high ecological value as well as industrial, leisure, and agricultural activities that dump into the water body different kinds of pollutants. In this complex context, a proper description ...
A data envelopment analysis of the impact of European funds on environmental indicators
The European Union (EU) has launched two regional investment programs of European Funds (FE) in the last decade. One covers the period of 2007 to 2013, and the second from 2014 to 2020. Among the goals contained in FE ...
Comparative carbon emission assessments of recycled and natural aggregate concrete: Environmental influence of cement content
This work examines the environmental and geochemical impact of recycled aggregate concrete production with properties representative for structural applications. The environmental influence of cement content, aggregate ...
Composite carbon materials from winery composted waste for the treatment of effluents contaminated with ketoprofen and 2-nitrophenol
The present work consisted of preparing and characterizing composite carbon materials (WRCC) from raw winery residues (WR) activated with zinc chloride to produce a carbon adsorbent. The WRCC was used for the adsorption ...
Metal-enriched nanoparticles and black carbon: A perspective from the Brazil railway system air pollution
Having a better understanding of air pollutants in railway systems is crucial to ensure a clean public transport. This study measured, for the first time in Brazil, nanoparticles (NPs) and black carbon (BC) on two ground-level ...
Nanoparticles in fossil and mineral fuel sectors and their impact on environment and human health: A review and perspective
Nanoscience and technology have enabled better insights into the environmental and health impacts arising from the mining, production and use of fossil and mineral fuels. Here we provide an overview of the nanoscience-based ...
Identification of hazardous nanoparticles present in the Caribbean Sea for the allocation of future preservation projects
The deposition of remaining nanoparticles in the Caribbean Sea generates the formation of potentially dangerous elements, which influence at the imbalance of ecosystems. The detection of nanoparticles is not simple and the ...
Nanoparticles and interfaces with toxic elements in fluvial suspended sediment
Studies examining nanoparticles (NPs) and hazardous elements (HEs) contained in suspended sediments (SSs) are vital for watershed administration and ecological impact evaluation. The biochemical consequence of titanium-n ...
Dispersion of hazardous nanoparticles on beaches around phosphogypsum factories
Anthropogenic occurring nanoparticles (NPs) have been one of the principal catalytic components of marine pollution throughout its history. The phosphogypsum (PG) factories present environmental risks and evident marine ...
