An overview of chemical mixtures assessment and modelling in the aquatic environmentFunded under: FP7-ENVIRONMENT
The number of chemicals produced and released to the environment is overwhelming. The impacts of a chemical depend on the released quantity, where it occurs, how chemicals are transported in the environment, how long they survive or persist, and how much toxic stress is exerted on ecosystems. Several of them - PAHs, PCBs and PBDEs, amongst others - are persistent and tend to bioaccumulate and biomagnify in the food web. For these reasons, strategies are needed to predict the effects of these compounds in the environment.
