Limits for Heavy Metals and Methods for their Application

Berlin, 2.-4. Dezember 2002

The UN/ ECE Convention on Long-range Transboundary Air Pollution (CLRTAP) has over the years substantially contributed to the development of international environmental law and has created the essential framework for controlling and reducing the damage to human health and the environment caused by transboundary air pollution. In the years from its entering into force (1983) until today problems of...read more

Financial Support to the Aviation Sector


While it is generally acknowledged that air transport causes environmental damages that are not included in its price - so-called external environmental costs - it is sometimes argued that air transport covers at least its infrastructure costs. This argument is important in the discussion on distortions of competition between transport modes. Besides, aviation enjoys taxation advantages  such as t...read more

Emission of Flame Retardants from Consumer Products and Building Materials


Since the interior atmosphere represents a major part of the built environment, determining emissions from those sources which influence indoor air quality is of great importance. Recently, interest has been focussed on flame retardants (FR) which have been increasingly used in consumer and building products in combination with a rapid increase in the use of plastics. The aim of the research proje...read more
