Every summer, LIST looks back at the success stories from the previous year. Discover LIST's numerous applied projects to study urgent water management issues.
LIST is working on numerous applied projects funded by the Luxembourg Water Management Authority and the European LIFE Programme, which have led, in 2021, to a portfolio of high-level publications dealing with the use of polar passive samplers to study urgent water management problems. LIST's experts have measured the effectiveness of biological waste water treatment plants at eliminating xenobiotics, put forward a plan for assessing the impact of micropollutants on surface waters, singled out urban sources of biocide emissions, and drawn up coherent assessments of pesticide emissions in agricultural watersheds. This long-term research also led to the patenting of a passive sampler housing, as well as a referenced biological trial, opening up new opportunities for participation in European projects.
