Project ID: 509188
Funded under: FP6-INCO

Abstract

The EU-funded EMCO project addressed the issue of 'emerging' or 'new' contaminants, focusing on the western Balkan countries. The overall project objective was to reduce environmental and health risks through the improvement of the quality of the effluents in surface waters. Moreover, it assisted the formulation of emission boundaries and the development of pollution avoidance strategies.

This final activity report firstly refers to the project objectives and then presents the implemented methodological approach. In addition, the document focuses on each undertaken activity and analyses the obtained results. Finally, the organised dissemination actions are highlighted and the generated exploitable knowledge is listed.
