Experimental and literature review of internationally proposed critical levels for ammonia to protect the vegetation


Vascular plants, mosses and lichens react sensitively to the exposure to air pollutants and pollution from ammonia (NH3). Critical concentration values for ammonia to protect vegetation (so-called critical levels) were defined for risk assessment in the Geneva Convention on Long-Range Transboundary Air Pollution (CLRTAP). The project was used to review the current scientific status of those impact...read more

Overview of hazardous substances potentially emitted from offshore industries to the marine environment - Part 1: Emissions from offshore wind industry


The report for industry and permitting authorities provides an overview of the hazardous substances that can be released into the marine environment during the installation, operation and decommissioning of offshore wind turbines, including transformer stations, converter platforms and cables. The substances relevant to operation were identified and listed. These substances were assessed for their...read more

Overview of hazardous substances potentially emitted from offshore industries to the marine environment - Part 4: Emissions from offshore energy industry and other sea-based activities


The report for authorities and scientists provides an overview of substances that can be released into the marine environment from various offshore industries and estimates the quantities of pollutant inputs. These may be relevant as additional contaminants according to European Commission Decision (EU) 2017/848 for Descriptor 8, Criterion D8C1. In addition to the potential hazardous substances fr...read more

Evaluating the impact of landscape structure and source-sink dynamics on non-target arthropod pesticide risk assessments in Germany


The ELONTA project aimed at understanding the relationships between landscape structure, source-sink dynamics and the risk of pesticide use for Non-Target Arthropods (NTAs). It also investigated the effectiveness of introducing two landscape-based mitigation measures: grassy field boundaries and unsprayed field margins. The project used a model NTA species, Bembidion lampros, a small, univoltine,...read more

Tailored Assessment Strategies for Environmental Protection


The project generated ecotoxicological data needed for the development of a tailored testing strategy to assess the environmental risk of pharmaceuticals (progestins and glucocorticoids). For this purpose, chronic fish tests, among others, were carried out in the laboratory according to a new test protocol currently undergoing OECD validation investigating dienogest and dexamethasone as test subst...read more

Toxicological basic data for the derivation of EU-LCI values for β-pinene, other terpenes, pentanols, 5-chloro-2-methyl-4-isothiazolin-3-one (CIT) and 2-methyl-4-isothiazolin-3-one (MIT)


The subject of this project was the preparation of substance reports for five substances or substance groups relevant for building products emissions. For these substances, the toxicological data basis were compiled and evaluated, and EU-LCI values were proposed. The EU-LCI values allow the harmonisation of the health assessment of building products emissions throughout Europe. The EU-LCI Working...read more
