The Ganges-Brahmaputra Delta is a global hotspot for arsenic groundwater contamination. Naturally occurring arsenic concentrates in water drawn from deep tube wells, creating a major public health issue in West Bengal and Bangladesh, described as the “largest mass poisoning of a population in history”. Arsenic mitigation technologies mostly rely on allowing the contaminated fluid to run through a porous network onto which the contaminant adsorbs. However, traditional adsorbents suffer inherent limitations, including cost unfeasibility and problems associated with regeneration and disposal of … [Read More...]
