wca had two platform presentations on Day 2 of the SETAC Europe meeting in Helsinki; I asked where do the data come from to make bioavailability corrections possible, while Adam presented his work on the Validation of bio-met for the site specific bioavailability normalisation of EQS for copper, nickel, and zinc in the Fate and Effects of Metals session. We have all attended numerous other sessions on various topics from pharmaceuticals, to metals, with Ed particularly enjoying Chemical Substitution and Alternatives session.

We are looking forward to another busy day tomorrow with Olivia presenting her work on the ‘Derivation of total polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAH) water quality standards using probabilistic approaches’ (poster WE025) and Dean will be co-chairing the Session, ‘Wastewater Effluents: How Research Can Improve Risk Assessment and Regulation’, with Mirco Bundschuh of Landau University and Mathijs Smit of Shell.
