Analytical methodologies for emerging micro-pollutants in complex matrices.
|WATER TOPIC||Urban pollution|
|KEYWORDS TYPE||Analytical methodologies.|
|MARKET NEED TAILORED|
It is necessary to make monitoring of emerging micro-pollutants which are difficult to measure (trace levels). Proposed methodology will help organizations in charge of aquatic environments monitoring.
This project dealt with emerging contaminants analysis (pharmaceuticals, etc.) and wastewater treatment performance for these substances. The project has helped to develop performing sampling methods (Polar Organic Chemical Integrative Samplers - POCIS) and analytical methodologies for these micro-pollutants in complex matrices. This project has dealt with chemical pollutants from Water Framework Directive and "new pollutants".
|STATE OF DEVELOPMENT|
The project is finished and obtained Pierre Potier Prize awarded by the French Federation for Chemical Sciences, UIC and the Ministry of Industry.
|INNOVATIVE ASPECTS AND ADVANTAGES|
Detecting new pollutants for performances checking of wastewater treatment plants and surveying of water quality.
|INTELLECTUAL/INDUSTRIAL PROPERTY RIGHTS|
This methodology has been published in scientific articles and is now known. No problems of intellectual property rights.
This methodology will be useful in all European countries because the emerging pollutant problem is enverywhere in the world.
Authorities and agencies in charge of water quality monitoring.
|Estimation of risks|
Problaly high level of technology for analysis and costly, except for laboratories already equiped.
|EVALUATION OF RISKS FOR OUTPUT USERS|
Investments will be surely necessary for equipments (new laboratories) and training.
|ECONOMICAL RISKS||Medium risks.|
|TECHNICAL RISKS||Medium risks.|
|MARKET RISKS||Medium risks.|
|SOCIAL RISKS||Low risks.|
|NEXT STEPS TO ACHIEVE THE STATUS 'READY TO USE'|
Job has been done on molecules from "old regulation". In the near future, works will be on new molecules in other projects.
|INVOLVEMENT OF THE OWNER FOR THE NEXT STEPS||Limited availability except maybe INERIS.|
|TYPE OF PARTNER FOR THE NEXT DEVELOPMENTS||Availability depending on time.|
|TASKS TO BE PERFORMED|
Methodolology seems to be defined. Methodology diffusion has been done by scientific articles and 2 thesis.
|Estimation of ressources|
|RESOURCES FOR NEXT STEPS|
|FORESEEN COSTS FOR NEXT STEPS|
Foreseen costs will be costs for implementating the analytical methodology if necessary.
