Étude de l'impact d'un xénobiotique sur le milieu aquatique: Approche méthodologique
1990 - IRG/WP 3586
L'action de xénobiotiques sur les communautés vivantes des écosystèmes lénitiques a été abordée à des échelles spatiotemporelles différentes. Dépassant le niveau des tests monospécifiques, nous avons effectué des essais en laboratoire sur des microcosmes contenant des végétaux ( Lemna minor ) et des bactéries et également sur des bassins de quelque m³ contenant une gran...

In-house accelerated method for testing decay resistance of treated wood
2004 - IRG/WP 04-20286
Fungicidal compounds often change their effectiveness when they are incorporated into candidate formulations. For this reason fungistatic effectiveness needs to be re-evaluated as many times as the formula has been modified for better performance. To avoid multiple expenses, in-house fungistatic tests are essential. Our goal was to develop in-house usable, simple but reliable and reproductive proc...

Contamination of recycled wood from selected recycling companies in Europe
2016 - IRG/WP 16-50322
Recycled wood is becoming more and more important material source for production of new materials and chemicals. For good quality of end products predominately clean recycled wood should be used. In present research, we have focus on concentrations of non-wooden materials in recycled wood and presence of inorganic pollutants: chlorine (Cl), chromium (Cr), copper (Cu), zinc (Zn), lead (Pb), iron (F...
