Description

Environmental pollutants can originate from manmade activities or can be naturally present in the environment. They might be present in the soil, water, air and can enter the food chain. The population might get exposed to these pollutants via inhalation, contaminated food and water or through skin contact. The presence of these contaminants in the environment and the food web might have an important impact on the environment and public health.

The ICEPRAR conference brings together scientists from academia, laboratories and industry, control authorities and representatives of national and international agencies from Europe and Africa to exchange scientific results and to discuss chemical contamination of the environment and the food chain, environmental remediation, risk assessment and public health impact.

The objectives of the symposium are:

* Analysis of contaminants
* Sampling techniques
* Development and validation of new measurement techniques
* Bio-sensors
* Biological indicators
* Occurrence and concentration of pollutants in soil, water, air, wildlife and food * Toxicology
* Exposure and risk assessment
* Environmental and health impact assessment
* Epidemiological studies
* Environmental remediation
* Environment and food chain legislation
