The main objective of WP2-Alternatives Assessment is to provide safer chemical alternatives to non-essential uses of prioritized persistent and mobile substances.
This will be achieved through the following activities:
▼ Build a database of potential chemical and functional alternatives for prioritized persistent and mobile substances (with WP4,5).
▼ Build an evidence base of stakeholder perceptions, motivations, intentions surrounding persistent and mobile substance use and further develop and apply the essential use concept (with WP3,4,6).
▼ Develop novel methodologies for chemical alternatives assessment (CAA) applicable to persistent and mobile substances (with WP5,6).
▼ Apply these novel methodologies to selected use cases for persistent and mobile substances, potential chemical and functional alternatives (with WP4,5,6) and selected case studies of alternative treatment technologies (with WP7).
WP2 is led by Dr. Ian Cousins, Stockholm University. Three institutes are participating, that tackle alternative assessment from diverse perspectives. Stockholm University will tackle environmental chemistry, PFAS, essential use, chemical alternatives assessment; Chalmers University of Technology will address life chemical assessment, toxicology and, chemical alternatives assessment; University of Vienna will take on environmental psychology, human perceptions and decision-making.
