Cleaning Up With Ultrasound

Organic pollutants in soil are an increasing problem, and an inevitable consequence of our wasteful and carefree manufacturing and farming procedures in the past. An Australian team have struck upon a novel solution to the issue, taking inspiration from the mining industry – they have developed a prototype ultrasound cleaner that can rattle the chemical junk out of half a tonne of soil every day. It appears to be an environmentally sound method of removing pollutants that can otherwise escape into the water cycle, and hence the food chain.
