A better fish bioconcentration test
The overall objective of the proposed research is to reduce the cost and the number of animals needed to measure the bioconcentration factor (BCF) of organic chemicals in fish, using the accepted "gold standard"OECD 305 as the point of referencwe. More specifically, the goals are to: - Reduce the ...
A sound science-based assessment of organic contaminants in the marine environment
The project's aims are: 1) to solidify ITM?s position as a world leader in identifying and evaluating organic contaminants in the marine environment; 2) to provide the Swedish government with the scientific knowledge to take a leading role in international debate, negotiations and policy-making ...
Advanced tools for exposure assessment and biomonitoring
A-TEAM is a major co-ordinated supradisciplinary study. It seeks to develop understanding of a variety of aspects relatedto external and internal exposure to selected chemicals using a single, well-characterised human cohort (the "A-TEAM"). Its overriding hypothesis is that current approaches used ...

Analysis of polybrominated dibenzo-p-dioxins (PBDD), hydroxylated polybrominated diphenyl ethers (OH-PBDE) and methoxylated polybrominated diphenyl ethers (MeO-PBDE) in two food webs in the Baltic Sea
We have recently discovered tribrominated dioxins (triBDD) in mussels from the Baltic Sea. The concentration of the dominant triBDD congeners exceeds that of the most dominating PCB congeners (eg. CB-153). The most likely hypothesis for the source of the triBDDs in blue mussels is their formation ...
BalticPOPs focuses on the dioxin problem in the Baltic region. The scientists will investigate the reasons for the high dioxin concentrations in Baltic fish (WP1) and the sources for dioxins in air (WP2). Previous and new knowledge will be combined and evaluated in a system synthesis, for which the ...
Biological Reference Materials for Organic Contaminants
It is proposed to study the feasibility of the certification of polybrominated diphenyl ethers in fish and sediment, organochlorine pesticides in fish and polyaromatic hydrocarbons in mussels. The availability of certified reference materials (CRMs) could lead to a better analytical performance and ...
Creation, Evaluation and Application of an Integrated Environmental Fate And Human Food chain Bioaccumulation Model for Polar and Non-Polar Organic Substances
The work content is structured according to the project objectives listed above. 1. To create a mechanistically based, non-steady state, chemical fate and bioaccumulation model to predict wildlife and human exposure to organic chemicals. 2. To further develop this model to make it applicable to ...
Development, application, and evaluation of model-based screening procedures for PBT chemicals and POPs (SCREEN-POP)
The Scientific objective of this project is: 1) To create a tiered screening system for identifying potential PBTs and POPs amongst existing chemicals; 2) to verify whether the potential PBTs / POPS identified in the screening programare present in the European background environment / the remote ...
Environmental chemical disruptors of oxidative phosphorylation as a potential cause of wasting and reproductive effects in Baltic wildlife - A cocktail effect requiring a toxic equivalent approach
This project is taking a novel approach to explain some observed adverse health effects in Baltic Sea wildlife, such as wasting syndrome among several Baltic Sea mammals, birds and fish, and reproductive insufficiency among fish species. The long term goal is to understand these environmental ...
