AgriAs: Evaluation and management of arsenic contamination in agricultural soil and water

The main objective of AgriAs is to evaluate and manage European risks of As exposure through agriculture. AgriAs project will build on existing knowledge by using national and European databases, develop and test new technologies and evaluate risks. Arsenic in agricultural soils and water, and its subsequent entering into the food chain cause potential risk to human health and to aquatic and soil organisms. Demonstration and dissemination of deliverables will be organized in close interaction with stakeholders, end-users and policy-makers. The project team consisting of research institutes, universities and companies has long international experience on arsenic studies. The results of the project have potential for commercial exploitation especially in water and soil treatment. The results and the new knowledge can be utilized also by SMEs, especially in the generation of bio-indicators, arsenic removal technologies and soil-conditioners. More
