ECO34: A tiered testing strategy for rapid estimation of bioaccumulation by a combined modelling – in vitro testing approach

The overall objective of our research is to reduce the uncertainty related to the estimation of bioaccumulation of organic chemicals in fish in ecological risk assessment (ERA). Based on a combination of different in vitro approaches to estimate chemical uptake […]

ECO32: Environmental risk assessment of poorly soluble substances: Improved tools for assessing biodegradation, (de)sorption, and modeling

This project proposal will answer the following questions: Objective: How can the aqueous phase biodegradation kinetics of poorly water soluble substances be measured without the influence of bioavailability factors, i.e., without (de)sorption effects? Objective: How can the desorption rates of […]

ECO31: Identifying strategies that will provide greater confidence in estimating the degradation rates of organic chemicals in water, soil and sediment

In the first phase of this project (ECO31.1), the team aimed to identify strategies that will provide greater confidence in estimating the degradation rate constants of organic chemicals in the environment. To meet this objective, the team performed an extensive […]
