Reducing atmospheric pollution can spare human lives

238 people lost their lives in 2017 due to emissions released by vehicles and heat sources. Forty-five and twenty-four percent of anthropogenic nitrogen oxides (NOx) and particulate matter (PM2.5) emissions originate from vehicles and combustion sources, respectively. In fact, Cyprus, according to the European Environment Agency, in 2018, exhibited the second highest NOx concentration in Europe. Researchers from the University […]

Η μείωση των ατμοσφαιρικών ρύπων μπορεί να σώσει ανθρώπινες ζωές

238 άνθρωποι έχασαν τη ζωή τους στην Κύπρο το 2017 λόγω ρύπων που εκλύθηκαν από οχήματα και πηγές θέρμανσης Οι ανθρωπογενείς εκπομπές οξειδίων του αζώτου (ΝΟx) και αιωρούμενων μικροσωματιδίων (PM­2.5) προέρχονται κατά 45% και 24% από τα οχήματα και την θέρμανση αντίστοιχα. Η Κύπρος μάλιστα, σύμφωνα με τον Ευρωπαϊκό Οργανισμό Περιβάλλοντος, το 2018 είχε τη δεύτερη ψηλότερη συγκέντρωση ΝΟx σε […]

Το μέγεθος της ρύπανσης από πλαστικά στις κυπριακές παραλίες

Κάπου 66,000 πλαστικά μπουκάλια, σακούλες, καλαμάκια και περιτυλίγματα μολύνουν τις παραλίες μας Η Κύπρος διαθέτει 69 παραλίες με Γαλάζια Σημαία και αυτό κάνει πιο επιτακτική την ανάγκη προστασίας της ακτογραμμής μας. Ερευνητές στο Πανεπιστήμιο Λευκωσίας ανέπτυξαν μια πρωτοποριακή μέθοδο για να εκτιμήσουν την έκταση του προβλήματος των πλαστικών στις ακτές του νησιού. Η ομάδα του εργαστηρίου Marine & Carbon Lab […]
