Bioelectronic ‘Nose’ Can Detect Food Spoilage by Sensing the Smell of Death

Strong odors are an indicator that food has gone bad, but there could soon be a new way to sniff foul smells earlier on. As reported in ACS Nano, researchers have developed a bioelectronic “nose” that can specifically detect a key decay compound at low levels, enabling people to potentially take action before the stink spreads. It can detect rotting food, as well as be used to help find victims of natural disasters or crimes.

Fish Exposed to Treated Wastewater Have Altered Behaviour: Research

IMG_12122.jpg

A team of researchers from Environment Canada and Climate Change Canada and McMaster University have found that fish living downstream from a wastewater treatment plant showed changes to their normal behaviour—ones that made them vulnerable to predators—when exposed to elevated levels of antidepressant drugs in the water.

NUS Researchers Develop Low Energy, Cost-Effective Wastewater Purification System

A team of scientists from the National University of Singapore (NUS) has come up with a novel approach to treat industrial wastewater using electricity as a reagent for purification. The method can remove up to 99 per cent of hard-to-treat organic compounds found in various types of industrial wastewater. The NUS-developed system operates on low electrical power and does not generate secondary waste, such as sludge, that requires further costly residual waste processing such as incineration.

SOT Releases Issue Statement on Safety of Genetically Engineered Food Crops

The Society of Toxicology (SOT) has approved a new Issue Statement on food and feed safety related to genetically engineered (GE) crops (commonly referred to as GMOs). The Society's journal, Toxicological Sciences, also has published a new forum article that provides an in-depth review of 20+ years of GE research.
