by Fiona Terry

“Up the Pipe” shows real scientists in action, working on a project that has direct relevance to our daily lives. Dr Louis Tremblay and his team investigate the sludge at sewage treatment plants and go “up the pipe” to find out what goes down household drains. They want to raise public awareness of the harmful chemicals we may be using every day and convince us to use products that are less harmful to our environment.
