1 Chemicals in the context of the Water Information System for Europe (WISE) Bo N Jacobsen EEA Chemicals and Water workshop 6-7 December 2010, EEA, Copenhagen

2 Legislation & policies Measures Risk assessment Modelling Monitoring Several issues are related to chemicals (hazardous substances) in water Chemicals (Hazardous Substances) in Water

3 Policy Data and themes Projects DG ENV: Water WISE RTD EEA: Water Data Centre ESTAT: Water statistics JRC: Floods Droughts Elements in WISE (Water Information System for Europe) WISE is managed by the ”Go4” European Commission: - DG Environment - Joint Research Centre – Ispra (JRC) - Eurostat European Environment Agency Current display on WISE web-site :web-site

4 Modelling Assessments Projects and research Policy Data and themes DG ENV: Water website EEA: Water Data Center ESTAT: Water statistics JRC: Floods Droughts WISE RTD inventory: WISE RTD Intentions to make more visible: - modelling in WISE - multiple input to assessments EU policies

5 Legislation & policies Measures Risk assessment Modelling Monitoring Major Issues for Chemicals (Hazardous Substances) in Water Chemicals (Hazardous Substances) in Water Driver Pressure State Impact Response D R PS I I R

6 Monitoring Monitoring (occurrence) MethodsMedia Strategies Drinking water Groundwater Investigative Operational Compliance Bioassays (toxicity) Chemical analyses (concentrations) Wastewater Biota Sediment Sludge Surface water

7 Modelling Modelling Data banking (Compound Characteristics) Modelling tools Fate (processes) Stochastic models Environmental compartments Treatment systems QSAR Phys. - Chem. proporties Mechanistic models Other Fugacity models Process rates & partition coefficients Process kinetics

8 Risk assessment Exposure assessment (PEC) Hazard assessment (PEC/PNEC) Life Cycle Impact Assessment (LCIA) Toxicity Source apportionment Emission inventories Bioaccumulation Persistence Biomagnification Scenarios Cocktail effects...

9 Measures Measures Clean production Treatment technologies Public awareness Contaminated soil and groundwater Consumer behaviour Green procurement Agricultural practices Substitution of chemicals Drinking water Sediment reclaimation Wastewater (industrial / urban)

10 Legislation & Policies Environmental Quality Standards (EQS) Emission Standards Product regulations Effluent concentrations Environmental taxation (emissions, pesticides,..) Ecosystem services WFD – EQS Directive Whole effluent toxicity Emission load reductions Fiscal instruments International river and sea conventions REACH POP Convention,..

11 Legislation & policies Measures Risk assessment Modelling Monitoring Major Issues for Chemicals (Hazardous Substances) in Water Chemicals (Hazardous Substances) in Water EQS Emission Standards Product regulations Fiscal instruments Clean production Treatment technologies Public awareness Exposure (PEC) Hazard (PEC/PNEC) Life Cycle Impact (LCIA) Data banking Modelling tools Fate Methods Media Strategies

12 For discussion during workshop Do we see the same picture ? Do we use the same terms ? Willing to listen to expert experiences Ways for using WISE in support of: EU policies and assessments on chemicals / hazardous substances Inclusion of results from R&D activities Dissemination of results of your work
