Covid-19: what could subsurface wave detection mean for the pandemic?

, ,
The detection of SARS-CoV-2 viral infections responsible for Covid-19 allows us to monitor the evolution of the pandemic. Most methods are based on individual patient screening, with the disadvantages of cost and time. Other approaches based…
LCA

What is life cycle analysis?

, , , ,
Life cycle analysis (LCA) is increasingly common, in particular for eco-design or to obtain a label. It is used to assess the environmental footprint of a product or service by taking into account as many sources as possible. In the following…

Managing electronic waste: a global problem

, , , ,
Responsibilities surrounding digital waste are multi-faceted. On one side, it is governments' responsibility to establish tighter border controls to better manage the flow of waste and make sure that it is not transferred to developing countries.…
