Knowledge for a sustainable world

Following her successful submission to the Younger Scientists, Engineers and Technologists Awards, held at the House of Commons in March, which ranked a very creditable third ranking overall and was awarded the De Montford Prize, NRI's Tanya Stathers has been in great demand by the media.

Articles on her project's research into the use of diatomaceous earth as an environmentally-friendly alternative to conventional insecticides have appeared in no less than ten national newspapers, journal and periodicals to date in the UK.

Also, four radio interviews have been broadcast on the topic, ranging from the South African National Radio's 'Futurwatch' programme to the BBC World Service's 'Science in Action.'
