Overview of hazardous substances potentially emitted from offshore industries to the marine environment - Part 3: Best available techniques avoiding emissions into the marine environment from the offshore wind industry


The report for industry and permitting authorities provides an overview of the best available techniques to prevent emissions of hazardous substances from the offshore wind industry into the marine environment during installation, operation and decommissioning. In addition to risk management through the use of proper procedures, timely inspection and knowledgeable personnel, the report identifies...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

New-Generation Steroid Hormones

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

Third-country carbon pricing under the EU CBAM

Approaches for and challenges of recognising domestic payments


In October 2023, the EU introduced a Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism (CBAM) imposing a carbon price on imports of selected goods to the EU market. This way, the CBAM complements the European Emissions Trading Scheme (EU ETS). One question that arises for the implementation of the new instrument is how third-country carbon prices can be recognised and deducted from CBAM payments. The discussion...read more

Nitrous oxide - the underestimated greenhouse gas

Anthropogenic N₂O emissions are increasing – As a result of climate change, additional nitrous oxide is being released from natural sources


This fact sheet summarizes the results and content of the status report from the project “Meta-analysis - Global nitrous oxide/N₂O-sources: Inventories, trends, consideration in IPCC scenarios”. The properties of nitrous oxide (N₂O) as a greenhouse gas with an impact on the climate and the different methods for accounting of nitrous oxide sources and sinks will be briefly described. Additionally,...read more
