Treatment of mine water for the fast removal of zinc and lead by wood ash amended biochar

Lead and zinc mines are a primary source of environmental (post)-transition metal contamination resulting in major water pollution. Wood ash amended biochar has the potential to remediate mine contaminated water.

Seasonal and spatial patterns differ between intracellular and extracellular antibiotic resistance genes in urban stormwater runoff

There is a paucity of research regarding ARGs in stormwater runoff, particularly extracellular ARGs. In this study, extracellular ARGs are found to be abundant in stormwater, at relative concentrations comparable to intracellular ARGs.

About this collection

Water pollution and contaminants are of significant environmental importance as they can negatively impact both aquatic ecosystems and human health. This collection highlights work published in Environmental Science: Advances which improves our understanding of the sources, fate and effect of water pollutants in different compartments of the environment. 

The journal scope spans not only chemistry, but research from any discipline related to the environmental sciences. Studies that enhance holistic environmental understanding are particularly welcome, as are those offering solutions or improvements to building a cleaner, safer, healthier, more sustainable and equitable world.
