Consultation by Specialists
Project Purpose & Description
Perform an assessment of the presence and concentration of heavy metal values and metalloids into water bodies, specifically mercury, lead, cadmium and arsenic in FEALAC countries. The purpose of this is to assess by pilot studies the impact of these pollutants on living beings, environment and strengthen technology transfer, to exposed communities, to assume the measurement tasks, monitoring, mitigation and remediation from the opportunities and capabilities offered by bio and nanotechnology.
Activity Description & Outcome
Perform a systematic and concerted mapping of concentration values of metalloids and heavy metals. This will allow develop maps of concentration and risk as well as a study of causal and mobility in pilot sites chosen.
