Specific research on transgenic fish considering especially the biology of trout and salmon


The development of transgenic farm animals and transgenic fish is lagging markedly behind the development of transgenic crops. Several reasons account for this phenomenon - above all the complex physiology and reproduction biology of more highly developed animals. However, since the 1980s intensive research has been carried out worldwide in the field of transgenic modifications in vertebrates. Esp...read more

International Pilot Study for the determination of Riverine Inputs of Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAHs) to the Maritime Area on the basis of a harmonised methodology

- Final Report -


The objectives of this study are the determination of an annual load of the polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) for the seven selected rivers and the development of a harmonised methodology for the estimation of these riverine loads into the North Sea and the North-east Atlantic. For this purpose Belgium, Denmark, Germany (lead country), the Netherlands, and Spain contributed to this study wit...read more

Exemplary investigation into the state of practical realisation of integrated environmental protection with regard to large combustion plants in Germany


A central element to implement the IPPC-Directive (Council Directive 96/61/EC) consists in the information exchange on an European level on the “Best Available Techniques” BAT for all industrial activities listed in Annex 1 of the Directive. Technical Working Groups (TWG) are set up to facilitate the exchange of information under Article 16.2 of the Directive. The first TWG on large combustion pla...read more

Integrated Environmental Monitoring

Concept and Implementation


Due to global environmental changes the environmental risks are increasing and leading to higher demands on environmental monitoring.This requires the development of guidelines to evaluate the environmental changes monitored. Besides the criterion »human health«, i.e. the physical and mental well-being of humans, the resource »natural balance« has gained increasing importance recently, since the n...read more

Integrated Pollution Prevention and Control in selected Industrial Activities

Part I "Dressing, Impregnating, Coating"

- Installations for Surface Treatment using organic solvents for Dressing, Impregnating, Printing, Coating -

 Council Directive 96/61/EC concerning integrated pollution prevention and control aims at the EU-wide harmonisation of licensing procedures of certain industrial installations. In this context the "Best Available Techniques" (BAT) are of special importance. The Com-mission organises an information exchange for the establishment of specific BATs at Euro-pean level (article 16 (2) IPPC-Directive)....read more
