    Abstract : The United Nations (UN) has adopted 17 “Sustainable Development Goals” (SDGs) to achieve a clean, better and sustainable future. SDG 6 is to ensure that everyone has access to clean water and sanitation by 2030. READ MORE

  2. 2. Leaching of Hazardous Substances from Concrete Constituents and Painted Wood Panels

    Author : Åse Togerö; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : thiocyanate; biocides; leaching; runoff; admixture; coatings; resin acids; blast furnace slag; toxic; fly ash; cement; tall oil; diffusion paints; concrete;

    Abstract : At a time of increased concern about environmental issues in the building sector, it is essential to know the environmental performance of different building materials. Knowledge of the possible release of hazardous substances in building materials is scarce, and these aspects have often been neglected in environmental assessment methods. READ MORE

  3. 3. Antimicrobials in sewage treatment plants : occurrence, fate and resistance

    Author : Marcus Östman; Mats Tysklind; Jerker Fick; Erik Björn; Klaus Kümmerer; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; biocides; antibiotics; sewage treatment plants; wastewater; sludge; ozonation; activated carbon; antibiotic resistance; antimicrobials; mass flows; LC-MS MS; environment; advanced water treatment;

    Abstract : The World Health Organization (WHO) has identified antibiotic resistance as a major threat to human health. The environment has been suggested to play an important role in the emergence of antibiotic resistant bacteria. The external environment can act as a source of resistance genes that could potentially be transferred into human pathogens. READ MORE

  4. 4. Occurrence and environmental risk assessment of antifouling paint biocides from leisure boats

    Author : Maria Lagerström; Ann-Kristin Eriksson Wiklund; Erik Ytreberg; Kent Salo; Andrew Turner; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Antifouling paint; XRF; leisure boat; recreational boating; copper; zinc; tributyltin; organotin compounds; risk assessment; biocide; metals; release rate; Applied Environmental Science; tillämpad miljövetenskap;

    Abstract : The use of biocidal antifouling (AF) paints is the most common way to prevent fouling on leisure boat hulls. The main aim of this thesis was to investigate the pathways through which AF biocides, past and present, may reach the environment through their use on leisure boats and to improve the risk assessment of biocidal AF paints intended for amateur use.
