Oceans Heating up at an Accelerating Pace

#Spotlight - Initiative: Eau - Using a Data Driven Approach to Address Water Disparities

Initiative: Eau is an American NGO dedicated to increasing the safety and quality of drinking water services in developing urban areas. They use a data driven approach to address water disparities by using four principal programmes: Research, H2Odata.city, H2Odata.actor and H2Odata.crisis.

#FutureTech - Floating Park in Rotterdam Created from Plastic Pollution

#FutureTech - Floating Park in Rotterdam Created from Plastic Pollution

A new 'floating park' has been created in Rotterdam, and it's made from recycled plastic. The prototype park is made from plastic collected from the city's canals. 'Litter traps' have been set up along the water to catch the plastic, preventing it from flowing into the ocean. The recycled plastic is then turned into hexagonal pods and can be put together to create gardens, habitats for wildlife and seating areas for people to enjoy the park.

Drop4drop has been working with their partner in Zambia for the last 3 years to help combat the situation. Since working in the area, the number of people admitted to hospital with water related illnesses has dropped by a massive 60%.

#SupplierShowcase - Hydrosense

Until the development of the Hydrosense test the gold standard for detection of Legionella was the lab culture method. The culture method is still used by most laboratories in the world. It requires selective media and prolonged incubation periods. A concentration stage is followed by decontamination with heat and acid, which may involve loss of the target bacteria. The incubation stage itself takes 10-14 days to provide results and does not identify the virulent phase of the bacterium when the bacterium is viable but non-culturable.
