EMCO (9 partners, FP6, 2004-2007) The project addressed the hot issue of so-called "emerging" or "new" contaminants (i.e. human and veterinary drugs, surfactants, textile dyes), whose emission has recently emerged as an environmental problem. It focuses on their tracing in industrial and municipal effluents and removal by advanced water treatment technologies. EMCO aims to provide comprehensive data on the occurrence of emerging contaminants in effluents in the participating Western Balkans and EU countries and the extent to which these compounds can be removed by advanced treatment technology.

Collaboration with ECO: Biodegradation of fluorinated alkysulfonates utilizing mass spectrometric methods & QSAR methods will be studied in order to decrease their persistency.

Partners: HSF
