CURRENT S&T / RESEARCH - Process research on transport and fate of Persistent, Bio-accumulative and Toxic substances (PBTs) focusing on new chemicals (e.g. perfluorinated compounds PFCs and flame retardants PBDEs)

  • Levels and occurrence of new emerging chemicals e.g. PFCs and PBDEs
  • Transport and fate of new emerging chemicals
  • Development and testing new sampling techniques
  • Measuring physical and chemical properties of new chemicals
  • Investigating occurrence of periority chemicals recommended by EC Chemical Management Plan
