Earth's Day

On the Earth's Day, our colleague, Andrea Zsigmond, PhD, talks about the value of the natural mineral water springs.

Our country is peculiarly rich in these deposits. Today, 72 mineral springs are legally reconized for producing bottled mineral waters. The most renowned is the Borsec. A research team led by our colleagues assessed the quality of more than 30 mineral springs from Harghita and Covasna counties. They found that the chemical composition of these springs are extremely versatile although they are spread on a small area. Some of the springs are abundant in sodium bicarbonate followed by sodium chloride, others are rich in calcium bicarbonate. It is notable the high magnesium content (over 100 mg/L) of the springs from Băile Homorod (Harghita county) and Vâlcele (Covasna county).


Our colleague, Szende Tonk was awarded with a Hemran Ottó medal
