Aquaculture, or fish farming, is one of the world’s fastest growing food sectors, providing about half of all the fish we eat. As it stands, climate change is altering our ocean’s environment, causing the seawater to become warmer and impacting the marine ecosystems profoundly. How will these changes affect marine species, consumers and industries that rely on them?
Water is essential for life but it can also be a powerful source of energy when used properly. SME Instrument-funded Tecnoturbines recently signed a collaboration agreement with the Energy Division of the SUEZ Group, a worldwide leader in the environment sector. This would constitute a joint effort to reduce energy costs and to develop projects to generate clean energy based on the water potential.
The JRC has released ERM‑CA403 – a new Certified Reference Material (CRM) based on seawater that was certified for the mass concentrations of eight trace elements. This CRM enables better control of the quality of environmental water samples.
