September 6, 2022

PetroRisk version 8.01: Improved model for performing REACH Environmental Risk Assessments on petroleum substances

Concawe has updated the PetroRisk model used to calculate the environmental risk assessments (ERAs) for petroleum substances needed for REACH registration dossiers. The updates result in a model which...
A novel approach for assessing the biodegradability of constituents in petroleum substances
September 6, 2022

A novel approach for assessing the biodegradability of constituents in petroleum substances

Petroleum substances contain hundreds to thousands of constituents, making it very difficult to generate biodegradation data on all of those constituents individually. Concawe is undertaking a nove...
