Please be mindful and bring home your litter from the beach!
Consumers leave behind 80% of the plastic bottle caps on the beach. Plastic caps are among the top five most deadly marine debris items. Marine mammals, birds and fish see plastic bottle caps as food, which can have deadly consequences. Over 10.000 caps were analysed one by one. This is the first time pollution from plastic bottle caps has been researched this thoroughly. This research is important for successfully addressing this pollution at its source

Archimedean Screws are the preferred hydro-turbine for the development of low head sites. They provide a fish-friendly alternative to conventional turbines and sites with fish protection issues. Extensive fish passage tests have conclusively demonstrated that the large water chambers and slow rotation of the Archimedean Screw allow fish of all sizes, and debris safe passage through the turbine.

One of the most common pitfalls of solar energy is storing it. On sunny days there is typically an excess of energy, which is lost if not captured. But, fortunately many battery storage options are now available, including this groundbreaking new electrode prototype from the RMIT University in Melbourne, Australia, which could store energy at a much higher capacity, about 3000 percent more than existing technology.

Japanese knotweed can also seriously damage buildings, hard surfaces and infrastructure in some cases. Once established underneath or around the built environment, it can be particularly hard to control, in some cases growing through concrete and tarmac and other areas of hard-standing. When Japanese knotweed colonises riverbanks, it can damage flood defence structures and reduce the capacity of channels to carry flood water.
