  5. 5. Risk assessment of chemical mixtures in the aquatic environment

    Author : Mikael Gustavsson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []

    Abstract : The total chemical production within the European Union amounts to more than 300 million tonnes per year, of which 140 million tonnes are considered as hazardous to the environment. In order to ensure that these chemicals do not have harmful effects under normal use, likely environmental concentrations are compared to assumed environmentally safe concentration, and only if the resulting risk is deemed acceptable is the product or chemical allowed for use.
