More knowledge of possibly hazardous emerging contaminants

In 2015 the European TAPES project concludes in a new Watershare tool: AbatES. The TAPES project has focused on the bundling and extension of knowledge on emerging substances: (new) contaminants that present a potential hazard to the environment, health and water quality.

TAPES expanded international knowledge about emerging contaminants, and the information was connected to a decision model (the Watershare tool AbatES). As soon as a water company detects an emerging contaminant, it can use AbatES to obtain essential information about it and formulate a plan of action.

In the Community of Practice Emerging Substances one of the four work packages is about implementing the AbatES tool.
