This year’s annual meeting of the Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry Europe (SETAC) takes place in Brussels between the 8th and the 11th May 2017. The FoBiG employee Markus A. Schwarz presents results of a project on evaluation and further development of screening methods for assessment of environmental persistence, including the outcomes of a subsequent 2-(half)-days’ workshop and expert discussion. The project was performed for the German Umweltbundesamt (UBA) together with partners Hydrotox and ECT Ökotoxikologie. Markus A. Schwarz presents most important results within a poster titled „Regulatory assessment of environmental persistence: OECD biodegradability screening tests – need for improvements and possibilities for enhancements” on Montag, 8th of May, Exhibition Hall, No. 146 (Poster session: Persistence & biodegradation assessment). The poster abstract is available here.
