Scientists found that crab shells removed copper and cadmium in water conditions similar to mining or metal refining wastewater
Scientists in Malaysia have found that crab shells are effective in removing copper and cadmium from contaminated waters.
Copper and cadmium exist naturally in the environment, but human activities including industrial and agricultural processes can increase their concentrations. At high concentrations, copper can cause unwanted health effects such as nausea, while cadmium can be toxic to the kidneys.
The new business line will be called De Nora Water Technologies
