Research Lines

  • Analytical and sampling methods for the determination of persistent organic pollutants (dioxins, PCBs, brominated flame retardants, etc.) in environmental and food/feed samples.
  • Removal of persistent organic pollutants from fish oil for feed and food.
  • Climatic and seasonal influence on levels of persistent organic pollutants in air.
