The SETAC Europe 14th Special Science Symposium ‘Soil biodiversity: what do we know and how to protect it from adverse effects of plant protection products and other chemicals’ will be held on 19-20 November 2019 in Brussels. Within the framework of current regulations on chemicals in soil, the protection of the structure and functioning of […]
The SETAC North America 40th Annual Meeting takes place in Toronto (Canada) from 3 – 7 November 2019. ECT contributes with the following presentation:
ECT contributes with a platform presentation (see below) to the 13th SETAC Latin America Biennial meeting (Industry, academia and government for a global sustainability) that takes place in Cartagena, Colombia, from 15 to 18 September 2019.

The fish plasma model predicts the fish blood plasma concentration of a pharmaceutical from the water concentration to which the fish is exposed and compares it to the human therapeutic plasma concentration with the postulate that no adverse toxic effects occur below this concentration. The present study provides several lines of evidence supporting the fish […]
Despite the increasing use of pesticides in tropical countries, research and legislative efforts have focused on their temperate counterparts. In the present publication, the literature on environmental risk assessment of pesticides in tropical terrestrial ecosystems is reviewed. Potential differences in pesticide risks between temperate and tropical regions are evaluated, and research needs for tropical regions […]
For the treatment of groundwater contaminated with chlorinated hydrocarbons, nano-scaled zero-valent iron (nano Fe0) represents an efficient alternative to other treatments as e.g. pump & treat. Upon selection of a suitable treatment method for a given groundwater a risk-cost-benefit analysis is performed. This analysis does only rarely consider the potential risk of the remediation method […]
ECT is contributing to the SETAC Europe 29th Annual Meeting ‘One environment. One health. Sustainable societies’ that takes place in Helsinki, Finland, from May 26th to 30th, 2019. It addition to the presentations and activities indicated below, ECT presents its work at booth number 29.
The persistence assessment under REACH relies on compartment‐specific degradation half‐lives derived from laboratory simulation studies with surface water, aquatic sediment or soil. Although these data are given priority, they are not available for most of the compounds. Therefore, according to the integrated assessment and testing strategy for persistence assessment, results from ready biodegradability tests are […]
The two-day international conference ‘New approaches for prioritisation and assessment of the risks of pharmaceuticals in the environment’ will mark the end of the IMI-funded project ‘Intelligence-led assessment of pharmaceuticals in the environment’ (iPiE). The conference will take place on 24-25 June 2019 at the University of York (UK). It will provide an overview on […]
