Natural Toxins and Drinking Water Quality - From Source to Tap
01/01/2017 - 31/12/2020

Clean drinking water is crucial to human health and wellbeing. The ambition of the NaToxAq ETN network is to expand the research basis for EU’s leading role in securing high quality drinking waters for its citizens. Focus is on natural toxins – a large group of emerging contam...


WEATHER-MIC - How microplastic weathering changes its transport, fate and toxicity in the marine environment
01/01/2016 - 01/07/2016

Understanding the hazards posed by microplastics in the sea requires understanding the changes they undergo as a result of various environmental weathering processes, like UV exposure, biofilm growth and physical stress. These processes will influence parameters such as their ...


Field Estimation of Atmospheric Lifetimes of Organic Micropollutants using the Junge Variability-Lifetime Relationship
01/01/2012 - 31/12/2015
The goal of this research is to use field measurements to estimate the lifetimes of a range of organic chemical pollutants in the atmosphere using the Junge relationship. The Junge relationship relates atmospheric lifetime to the extent of spatial or temporal variability in conce...

Hazard Assessment of Chemical Pollutants Released to the Marine Environment by Degradation of Plastic Debris
01/01/2012 - 31/12/2012

I dagens samhälle användas plast i en aldrig sinande ström av produkter. I världen produceras årligen mer än 250 miljoner ton plast, vilket motsvarar 40 kg per person, en produktion som möjliggöras genom att utnyttja ca 8 procent av jor...
