Producing trash is inevitable, but the challenges of disposal become greater as space exploration moves into deep space. Long-term space travel requires that astronauts recycle their waste as much as possible and only jettison the trash out of an airlock when it is necessary.
Let's explore manhole safety around conducting underground cable inspection! This week's post highlights some of the general risks of working in a manhole.
The goal of achieving ‘net zero’ in humanity’s carbon emissions has long been sought after. In the past decade, the need to capture or reuse carbon a…
Learn more about the current methods of monitoring electrical cables underground and the biggest issues associated with maintaining them.
Achieving net carbon zero across sectors is imperative, but what about water? Singapore’s national water agency, PUB, thinks though the water sector is a small GHG contributor it should not be forgotten. Learn the importance of addressing carbon emissions in the water sector.
The Global Water Sector includes everything that manages the collection, treatment, and distribution of water and wastewater for the sake of the community. This sector only contributes an estimated 5% of the globe's yearly GHG emissions, but what actions cause this 5% and can it be decreased?
DLC is excited to announce that their crowdsourcing competition, Monitoring Electrical Cable Challenge is officially open and accepting submissions! Innovative minds from across the world are invited to participate in this new and challenging project.
Given climate change costs us tens of billions of dollars each year from floods, wildfires, and hurricanes, is there an opportunity to incentive the private sector to produce efficient carbon capture by offering a one-time $10 billion prize? This article explores this possibility.
The catfish industry has had its ups and downs but remains one of the most important aquaculture industries in the US. Recent technological advancements have increased productivity, but catfish farmers still face significant challenges.
For decades, scientists have been trying to figure out how to eliminate unpleasant flavors from catfish contaminated by blue-green algae — a problem which causes expensive harvesting delays. Now, the USDA-ARS is asking the public to share their ideas via crowdsourcing.
