Scientists collaborate with industry to improve plastic recycling
Researchers from the Centre for Sustainable and Circular Technologies (CSCT) are part of a project to enable mixtures of plastics to be recycled together. Last updated on Wednesday 6 January 2021 Part of the problem with recycling plastics is that they have to be separated into different types as each type has different properties, meaning they can't be recycled together.

Carbon chains can adopt fusilli or spaghetti type shapes depending if they have odd or even numbers of atoms
Scientists at the University of Bristol have now found that carbon chains can also adopt helical shapes, but, unlike DNA, the shape is dependent on how many atoms there are in the chain, with chains having even numbers of carbon atoms adopting helical, fusilli-like shapes and chains with odd numbers of carbon atoms adopting floppy, spaghetti-like shapes.

Analysis: Is love just a fleeting high fuelled by brain chemicals?
Attempts to reduce love down to one simple cause, whether pheromones or fate, are misguided and romantic love is more complex than simple science, explains Professor Parashkev Nachev (UCL Queen Square Institute of Neurology).

Oil-catching sponge could soak up residue from offshore drilling
An oil-catching sponge, developed at the University of Toronto and Imperial, could help thwart water contamination from offshore oil drilling. Drilling and fracking for oil under the seabed produces 100 billion barrels of oil-contaminated wastewater each year by releasing tiny oil droplets into surrounding water.

Toxic chemicals hindering the recovery of Britain’s rivers
Toxic chemicals from past decades could be hindering the recovery of Britain's urban rivers, concludes a recent study by scientists from Cardiff University, the University of Exeter, and the Centre for Ecology and Hydrology. During the 1970s, over 70% of the rivers in the South Wales valleys were classified as grossly polluted, by a combination of poor sewage treatment, colliery waste and industrial discharge.
