Congratulations to Grantham Scholar Manasi Mulay on the publication of her new paper on water pollution and treatment.
The paper, Water pollution and advanced water treatment technologies, is published by The Palgrave Encyclopedia of Urban and Regional Futures. It looks at water treatment methods with reference to SDG 6 Clean Water and Sanitation.
Water treatment is a way of treating water to make it suitable for reuse. Treatment can use chemical, physical, or biological methods. Pollution in water can take many forms, for example microplastics. Or water pollution can be micropollution such as personal care products, pesticides, and herbicides.
You can find out more and read the paper online here.
Manasi went to COP26 to watch the climate negotiations as an official observer for the University of Sheffield. If you want to find out what she hoped for from this all important COP, then you can read our interview with her.
Manasi was a member of the Grantham Centre’s Green Impact team, SHEFF-Yield. The aim of this project was to create awareness in Sheffield about locally grown food. The team won a gold award.
