  • No Photo Carbon Trading: The Future Money Venture for India    By: Mahesh Kumar Malav

    India qualifies to be a host country for the CDM projects only. India is considered as one of the most potential countries in the world for CDM projects. This is due to its large power sector that depends on fossil fuels, and to the proactive policies of the Indian government towards CDM. The power sector alone is estimated to emit 433 million tonnes of CO2 per annum. The total CO2 reduction potential through CDM projects in India is estimated to be around 300 million tonnes. The largest potential is in the renewable energy sector with 90 million tonnes CO2 equivalents. The total expected average annual CER's from registered projects by India are about 22 million having a 15% world share. Hence the India has a large potential to earn carbon credits and in this context the carbon consultancy service has a greater part to play and is going to add a new dimension to the Environmental consultancy and financial services arena (Energy Information Administration, 2011). >> Category: Issues

  • Author Photo Microbial Metal Bioaccumulation [PDF]    By: Fayaz Ahmad Malla

    Heavy-metal pollution represents an important environmental problem due to the toxic effects of metals, and their accumulation throughout the food chain leads to serious ecological and health problems. Metal remediation through common physico-chemical techniques is expensive and unsuitable in case of voluminous effluents containing complexing organic matter and low metal contamination. Biotechnological approaches that are designed to cover such niches have, therefore, received great deal of attention in the recent years. Biosorption studies involving low-cost and often dead/pre-treated biomass have dominated the literature and, subsequently, extensive reviews focusing on equilibrium and kinetics of metal Biosorption have also come up. >> Category: Biotech Research
  • Author Photo Environmental Informatics and its Applications    By: Fayaz Ahmad Malla

As such, it provides the information processing and communication infrastructure to the interdisciplinary field of environmental sciences aiming at data, information and knowledge integration, the application of computational intelligence to environmental data as well as the identification of environmental impacts of information technology. The UK Natural Environment Research Council defines environmental informatics as the "research and system development focusing on the environmental sciences relating to the creation, collection, storage, processing, modelling, interpretation, display and dissemination of data and information". Environmental informatics emerged in early 1990 in Central Europe. >> Category: Bioinformatics
  • Author Photo Methanotrophs: As an Environmental Remedy    By: Lal Chand Malav

    Landslides are major natural disaster which frequently occur in Central Himalayan Region (CHR) and affect life of human as well as animals, damage agriculture and impedes progress. The severity of damage depends on the affected population's resilience. But by adopting certain precautionary measures impact can be minimized. Directly or indirectly natural disasters affect our environment and natural resources. These affect the ecosystem (food chain); any disturbance in ecosystem may cause long lasting effects. A natural disaster can cause loss of life or damage property and typically leaves some economic damage in its wake. >> Category: Agriculture
  • No Photo Sheep Production System in Rajasthan | Sheep Wool and Meat    By: Dr. Prawin Arya

    The study was undertaken to examine the trends in sheep production system in Rajasthan. Although, sheep population increased impressively in Rajasthan since independence, but there was a decreasing trend in the recent past in the state and in almost all the districts. Wool production showed a declining trend and sheep meat production showed moderate growth in the state. The decline in wool production in the state could be on account of decrease in sheep population, low price and poor handling of wool. The temporary migration was found to be declining and permanent migration was increasing with an overall increasing trend in sheep migration in the state. Therefore, to sustain sheep production system in the state, urgent attention is needed for subsidized fodder and feed during drought, effective and subsidised credit to arrest the distress sale of animals, development of processing facilities and reforms in the small ruminant markets. >> Category: Agriculture

  • No Photo Almond Cultivation, Uses and Varieties    By: Dr. A. K. Trivedi

    A detailed article about Almond cultivation practices, nutritional value, uses and suitable varieties in Central Himalayan region. Horticultural crops form a crucial part of the agricultural production. India is the second largest producer of fruits in the world. Cultivation as well as processing of these crops generates significant employment opportunities. Fruits are rich source of vitamins, minerals, proteins and carbohydrates that are essential in human diet. Hence, fruits need to be incorporated as essential constituent of human diet in order to avoid malnutrition. In terms of production per hectare, output of horticultural crops is more than 6 times that of cereals. Although, during the past two decades, area, production, productivity, availability and export of horticultural crops has increased manifold, which provided ample opportunities for employment generation and effective land use planning. But some important fruit crops like almond are not popular among farmers which have ample scope in Central Himalayan Region (CHR) besides having high nutritional and antioxidant value. >> Category: Agriculture
  • No Photo Management of Insect Pests of Wheat    By: Dr. Vikas Gupta

  • No Photo Food Security through On-Farm Conservation of Agro-biodiversity    By: Dr. A. K. Trivedi

    Conservation and sustainable utilization of agro-biodiversity play vital roles to support poverty alleviation, ensure food security and enhance livelihood measures. On-farm conservation of agricultural biodiversity deals with conservation, use and management of genetic variation in farmers' fields that supports continuity of the dynamic evolutionary processes of genetic resources and ecological services, provides indigenous communities with ownership of and access to genetic resources and delivers options for improving livelihood measures specifically to resource-poor farmers. >> Category: Agriculture
  • No Photo Production of Quality Planting Material of Horticultural Crops    By: Dr. A. K. Trivedi

    Availability of planting material of good quality is one of the most important elements of successful horticultural production. Planting material available to small-scale farmers in different areas is often of insufficient quality, which undermines potential yield and performance of crop production. Raising the quality planting material locally to be used by local farmers is itself a challenge. Moreover, availability of suitable climatic conditions ensures that an area is suited or not to produce almost all the fruit crops. Therefore, awareness and technical knowledge for production of planting material of horticultural crops may revolutionize economy of farmers. >> Category: Agriculture

Thanks for your appreciation!

Personally, i wish that Petrichor should not be synthesized. we should get rid of this habit of turning every natural into synthetic. What will happen by producing it in lab: marketing it as a unique room freshner or something like that.. Instead let it be unique as natural fragrance and producing organisms be credited.

Article: Toxic Fibers and Fabrics - Comment by: Eleartemis - 2015-05-05

Thank you very much for your article!
For those who are looking for any "hard science" proof - good luck! If it wasn't for the people like the author of this article who speak out of their own experiences and research, you probably still would be living on a flat Earth, held by 3 elephants, a turtle and whatever else your "hard science" was teaching us dummies those days. This "science" will be obsolete in a hundred years or so, if it doesn't destroy our world before that.
I don't need any science to know that if the chemical is so strong to transform a strong wood into a soft material, or kill of the bugs that withstand radiation and other extremal conditions, wouldn't be any good for me or my environment. And I appreciate a lot there are still people who really try to make this world a better, healthier place for the rest of us. :)
