A Swiss study published in the 1 January 2006 issue of Environmental Science & Technology shows that motorcycles collectively emit 16 times more hydrocarbons, 3 times more carbon monoxide, and “disproportionately high” levels of other air pollutants, compared with passenger cars... Because they are not a primary means of transportation in developed countries, however, not a great deal of attentionhas been paid to emissions from these vehicles... But a U.S. EPA rule that took effect in January 2006 requires manufacturers to reduce emissions of hydrocarbons and nitrogen oxides by 60%... Global drink firms including The Coca-Cola Company and Cadbury Schweppes European Beverages are members of UNESDA... In November 2005, sporting goods manufacturers from Sialkot, Pakistan, who produce 60% of the world’s soccer balls, pledged to reduce and improve the use of water and energy during their manufacturing processes... They also agreed to introduce cleaner technology, reduce toxic wastes, and raise environmental awareness among their workers... This agreement was part of the Third Global Forum for Sports and Environment, which brought together more than 200 participants from the world of sports and sporting goods manufacturing to discuss their impact on and contribution to sustainable development... The new process uses electrolyzed oxidizing water, produced when electric current flows through two electrodes immersed in a weak saline solution and separated by a membrane... Tests showed that the electrolyzed oxidizing water was as effective as conventional treatments at removing organic matter from a series of pipes set up to simulate real milking equipment... Electrolyzed oxidizing water is also effective for cleaning other agricultural products such as fresh produce and eggs... Two papers published by Florida researchers in the 1 February 2006 issue of Environmental Science & Technology highlight the threat posed by arsenic from treated lumber used in decks, utility poles, and fences... The paper added that over 12,000 more tons will leach from structures by 2040... Currently Florida law does not require that construction and demolition landfills be equipped with linings.
