PROTECTION OF THE ENVIRONMENT
This programme represents about 8% of the total research effort of the Joint Research Centre; it provides, together with the related Indirect and Concerted Action Programme, scientific support to the Community's Programme of Action on the Environment (1982 - 1986). Numerous results were obtained in the programme's projects: ECDIN: Environmental Chemical Data Information Network (e.g. starting of the semioperational commercial ECDIN operation); Indoor Air Pollution project (e.g. interlaboratory comparison of passive samplers towards sponsoring of European collaboration and the preparation of a Concerted Action in the field of JAQ); Chemical Products Organics (e.g. new results on the mutagenic activities of polycyclic and heterocyclic aromatic compounds occurring in coal combustion); Air Quality (e.g. successful implementation of chromatographic methods (GC, GC-MS, HPLC) for application in photochemical bag experiments); Central Laboratory for Air Pollution (e.g. improvement of the tetrachloromercurate and pararosaniline reference method for SO-2 determination in ambient air); Water Quality project with two research lines: "Ecological Effects of Chemical Pollution" and "Nutrient Mass Balance in Aquatic Ecosystems"; Heavy Metal Pollution project with research lines: "ILE (Pathway of Automotive Lead)" and : "Exposure and Health Effects"; and projects: Exposure and Health Effects from Trace Metal Pollution, and: Environmental Impact of Power Plants.
