IES at the ACS Fall 2020 Virtual Meeting 800 771 Admin

Environmental Fate study director Christiaan Wijntjes presented a collaborative virtual presentation for the ACS Fall meeting:

Pesticide mixtures: Effects of combined application on the degradation of pesticides in soil (OECD 307) and aquatic sediment (OECD 308) test systems

The topic focuses on the investigation of the environmental impact of tank mixtures applied to soil and aquatic sediment systems. The effects of broad spectrum fungicidal treatment of respective environmental compartments on the route and rate of degradation of a sulfonylurea herbicide have been studied under controlled conditions, and are discussed in this presentation.

IES – Attending Virtual Conferences and Workshops
IES – Attending Virtual Conferences and Workshops 800 600 Admin

Although physical attendance of conferences remains difficult for all of us, we are continuously looking for ways to stay up to date on the latest guidance topics, as well as contributing to conferences through posters or video presentations.

Peter Hvorslev recently attended the online workshop “How to identify Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals”, organised by the Akademie Fresenius, while Arno Wess gave a presentation at JSOT on the topic of ERA, followed by a Q&A session.

Over the next few months we are also looking forward to delivering our scientific posters, as well as presentations, for conferences such as the ACS Fall 2020 Meeting and SETAC’s North American annual conference.

We look forward to playing our part in future events and to seeing you again soon.
