WP1 Effluent characterization: Non-target and target chemical analysis

Participating scientists: Peter Haglund (leader), Umeå University, Jerker Fick, Umeå University, Karin Wiberg, SLU.

WP1 aims at identifying potential micropollutants (MPs) released from OSSFs applying a non-target screening methodology combined with a multi-residue target analysis. The target analysis will be focused on major sewage effluent MPs, incl. pharmaceuticals, fluorinated chemicals, potential endocrine disrupters, and pesticides. The  analyses will be performed using state of the art GC- and LC-time-of-flight mass spectrometry (ToF-MS) and LC/GC-MS-MS.
