The Itai-Itai disease case is one of four major pollution-related lawsuits occurring in Japan after World War II. This paper, which is based on investigations of the pollution source, the Kamioka mine, considers (1) the history of the disturbances to the environment caused by the Kamioka mine; (2) the Itai-Itai disease suit; (3) the pollution-prevention measures and methods of the Kamioka mine and refinery; (4) the reduction of cadmium pollution in the Jinzu River; and (5) the actual…

Increasing traffic, industrial production and agricultural practices have led to enhanced release of heavy metals into soil and water. Many metals are essential to organisms and plants in their

Levels of Heavy Metals in some Commercially available Rice on the Liberian Market

Human activities such as agriculture, mining, urbanization and waste disposal can lead to heavy metals contamination of food crops, including rice meant for human consumption. In an effort to ensure

Distribution, pollution index and associated health risk of trace metals in waste-impacted soils within Akwa Ibom State, Nigeria

Abstract This research assessed the level, source and associated health risks of trace metals in waste-impacted soils within Nigeria. Results reported revealed that mean concentrations for all the

Evaluación del funcionamiento de un Sistema Biológico-físico-químico (BFQ) para el tratamiento

TLDR
The main purpose of this study was to evaluate the operation of a physical-chemical-biological (PQB) system to decontaminate the AMD using sulphate-reducing bacteria (SRB) that produce biogenic sulphur to precipitate heavy metals into metal sulphurs.
