I really like rivers and water management. When I\’m at the beach I always create tiny \”rivers\” (of course they\’re not really rivers, they\’re created by the tide). I love nature and whenever I see a large tree I always like to admire it.Tell us what the water concern in your country is!
In the Netherlands the weather is getting more extreme because of climate change. This is a problem because a big portion of the land is built upon and this means that in wet periods a lot of water accumulates which causes floods. Besides that the dry periods are relatively new to our country so it doesn't know how to deal with it very well.
The Green Gold vs. Salt: taking the first step to sustainable desalination by using halophilic algae
Algae have shown they are all-round problem solvers; they can be used as food, biofuel and a clean air source. The research ‘The Green Gold vs. Salt’ explored whether halophilic algae can selectively absorb sodium from the wastewater of the greenhouse horticulture, in order to make this sector 100% circular. After conducting the experiment, analyzing algae-growth and microscopic examinations, the outcome of our experiment is rather positive. On one hand, algae are not suitable as a desalination method for the greenhouse horticulture. This is because the algae only absorb sodium when the salinity of the water is substantially higher. On the other hand, this result does offer perspective for a promising future with algae as a desalination method for sodium…
