CER-CEC: From toilet to river

Efforts of three NWO-TTW projects on chemicals of emerging concern were combined and led to the publication of an H2O article. Lara Schuijt (WUR), Caterina Zillien and Tamara van Bergen (RU) present a framework for micropollutants (“from toilet to river”) and elaborate on this with a case study of fluoxetine in Nijmegen.

The article describes which insights and results the combined projects are expected to deliver. From the preliminary case study, they conclude that the quality of input data is of crucial importance in order to make valuable emission estimates and to do an acceptable risk assessment. As researchers, we are always looking for more data! So if you can help us with relevant datasets, please contact us (This email address is being protected from spambots.
