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 ...
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 ...
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 fate of semifluorinated n-alkanes
Semifluorinated n-alkanes (SFAs) are compounds present in ski-waxes and other products. They are dispersed into the environment by deposition on snow during skiing. Nothing is known abouth their environmental fate after this, although other fluorinated compounds like perfluorooctane sulfonate ...
Evaluation of the Predictability and Reversibility of Environmental Accumulation for Substances with POP/PBT-Like Properties
OBJECTIVES - Gain a quantitative understanding of how chemical and environmental characteristics interact to control long-term time trends of POP/PBT-like substances in various environmental compartments. - Test the ability of current dynamic multimedia models to accurately reproduce the observed ...
Is indoor air a significant human exposure pathway for tetra-decabrominated diphenyl ethers and hexabromocyclododecane as well as a major emission source to outdoor air?
PBDEs are widely used flame-retardants. DecaBDE is the major PBDE product in use and HBCD is also used in high volumes. Globally, PBDE levels in humans vary widely but estimated dietary intakes are similar. PBDE levels are much higher indoors than outdoors and high levels are found on dust, thus ...
Mass balance of perfluorinated alkyl substances in the Baltic Sea
Perfluorinated alkyl substances (PFAS) have been produced for more than 50 years and are today ubiquitous in the environment. Ionic PFAS are surfactants and tend to accumulate in the water phase. Due to their unique physico-chemical properties, theories on PFAS’s transport pathways and fate in the ...
Network of reference laboratories and related organisations for monitoring and bio-monitoring of emerging environmental pollutants
NORMAN co-ordination action will develop and implement a methodology within a network of reference laboratories and related organisations (including standardisation bodies) to enable and improve EU capabilities for monitoring emerging pollutants, thereby ensuring the production of data that are ...
