wca are at SETAC Helsinki 2019; and have been very busy meeting new acquaintances and renewing old while attending numerous scientific sessions. Of particular interest have been the sessions focused on the regulatory risk management approach of UVCBs and the SEA session. Additionally Olivia has presented here work on the ‘Contribution of zinc from household and personal care products to wastewater’ in the Fate and Effects of Metals Session.

wca are available to meet at our booth in the exhibition hall (No. 44) throughout the conference.

We have a busy day tomorrow, 28th May, with wca staff having the following presentations:

Iain Wilson will be asking ‘Correcting for metal bioavailability in European freshwaters: where do the data come from to make this happen?’ (243) and Adam Peters will be discussing the ‘Validation of Bio-met for the site specific bioavailability normalisation of EQS for copper, nickel, and zinc’ (244), both of which are in Session 4.08 – Fate & Effect of Metals.
