From LIBERA project they want to analyze the organic pollutants widely distributed in waters, soils and sediments of natural areas (Natura 2000 Network and IBA’s) due to the use and spillage of compounds associated with agricultural, industrial and urban activities.
¿What are we going to do?
The objective of the study is to evaluate the presence of pesticides, pharmaceuticals, plasticizers, flame retardants, perfluorinated compounds and microplastics in water, soils and sediments collected from 140 IBAS (Important Bird Areas) + Red Natura 2000). To this end, sampling, processing and extraction of contaminants will be carried out using analytical methodologies. At the instrumental level, the contaminants will be analyzed by means of liquid or gas chromatography combined to mass spectrometry to determine the concentrations in the environmental samples studied.
