Research 150: Assessment of exposure to metallic nanoparticles, focusing on silver on marine and fresh water model organisms at a cellular and genetic level

Year: 2015

With the advent of industrial utilisation of ENMs, it is now of the utmost importance that exposure risk scenarios in relation to increasing and unnatural NPs, where their function and interaction with their environment is unpredictable, are monitored, assessed and, if required, that regulatory guidelines are implemented early in their application.

Research 144:The Protection of Water Resources:Developing Novel Sensor Materials

Year: 2015

The research described herein sets out to develop polymer-coated, membrane-based technologies that could be used to detect organic contaminants, nitrates or heavy metals, namely chromium and copper, in aqueous systems. The membranes were modified so as to investigate their potential in the required sensing capacity.

Tasks Update of the UGEE Joint Research Programme - April 2015

Year: 2015

The UGEE Joint Research Programme is a comprehensive programme of research and there are many elements to it (some baseline analysis & desk –based literature reviews). At present, there has been good progress on the UGEE JRP, as described in this document. The final report will be made publically available on the EPA website. Further details on the research programme are currently available on a dedicated website www.ugeeresearch.ie
