i often use that tagline sarcastically - but in these cases, its * true! *
::thumb-up:: good news...
less-toxic biodiesel conversion:
clean contaminated yard-soil with ferns:
NOTICE however they don't mention what is done with concentrated-contaminant leaves... hmmm.
polymer-sponge filters waste from storm-water
removing oil, paint, microbes, etc -
storm-runoff is a major source of pollutants in bays, streams, rivers, lakes, and the ocean.
[again, no mention of what is done with them after they are used, nor how long they last.
hopefully the sponges are recyclable, if not their contents. i notice it refers to a *safe* solid
from converted hydrocarbons - are they recoverable, degradable, re-purposed?...]
friendly microbe vs mold on table-grapes
can eliminate up to 85% of grey-mold without the use of corrosive-allergen sulfur-dioxide.
using ozone to protect grapes [vs SO2] -
hypoallergenic AND higher-antioxidants
traditional sulfur-dioxide contaminates the grapes, is dangerous to handle,
corrosive, and triggers respiratory problems in many susceptible people.
a variation can protect wine - eliminating sulfites.
