Removal of fragrance materials during U.S. and European wastewater treatment.
The concentrations and removals of 16 fragrance materials (EMs) were measured in 17 U.S. and European wastewater treatment plants between 1997 and 2000 and were compared to predicted values. TheExpand

A Data Based Perspective on the Environmental Risk Assessment of Human Pharmaceuticals Il — Aquatic Risk Characterisation
Environmental risk assessment (ERA) evaluates the likelihood that adverse ecological effects result from exposure to a substance. It therefore requires a consideration of both exposure and effects inExpand

Marine risk assessment: linear alkylbenzenesulponates (LAS) in the North Sea.
The fate of linear alkylbenzenesulponates (LAS) in estuaries and coastal areas of the North Sea has been characterized with simple environmental models. The predicted concentration range in theExpand
