Water and sanitation

A responsive small-molecule fluorescence probe is developed for hypochlorous acid (HOCl) detection, using emerging technology for food safety and quality analysis.
Contributing to SDGs 6, 13 and 14, the article reviews the ability of adsorptive membranes to benefit the environment through the removal of contaminants and/or pollutants from wastewater, such as dyes, heavy metals, and pharmaceutical compounds.
This book chapter advances SDGs 6 and 11 by providing information on various sources of pollution and ways to monitor them. Assuring water quality and purity is extremely important because water is an essential material for human survival.
Advancing SDG 6, the RELX Environmental Challenge awards innovative projects that provide sustainable access to safe water or sanitation, with a first prize of $50,000 and a second prize of $25,000.
RELX’s Global Head of Corporate Responsibility, Dr Márcia Balisciano, talks to Dr Annabelle Houdret and Dr Michael Brüntrup about water security, sustainable consumption and SDG 6. 
World Water Day is an annual United Nations Observance focusing on the importance of freshwater and raising awareness of the 2.2 billion people living without access to safe water.To raise awareness of the value of water, Elsevier presents a curated list of free access journal articles and book chapters. At Elsevier, we are advancing #SDG6 research and ensuring that #Everydrop counts.
The Ganga basin includes some of the most densely populated areas in the world, in a region characterized by extremely high demographic and economic growth rates. Although anthropogenic pressure in this area is increasing, the pollution status of the Ganga is still poorly studied and understood. In the light of this, we have carried out a systematic literature review of the sources, levels and spatiotemporal distribution of organic pollutants in surface water and sediment of the Ganga basin, including for the first time emerging contaminants (ECs).
This book chapter advances SDGs 13, 12 and 15 by discussing climate change and its causes and effects on water resources and implications for adaptation.
This chapter advances SDG 6 by presenting a case study for depollution of water, which contributes to achieving clean water in North Africa.
This chapter advances SDG 6 by offering a technique for water treatment, with emphasis on date pits (DP) availability, chemical composition, and activated carbon (AC) preparation methods from DP.
