Bioessais, biomarqueurs, biosurveillance… De quoi parle-t-on ?

Si on évoque de plus en plus les bioessais, biomarqueurs ou la biosurveillance dans le cadre du contrôle de la qualité des eaux, en quoi consistent ces nouvelles stratégies et quelles réponses apportent-elles ?

Using sentinel organisms to monitor micropollutant peaks at WWTPs

A scientific publication demonstrates the relevance of using sentinel organisms to monitor micropollutant peaks in WWTPs, thanks to the ToxMate bio-detection station.

ToxMate deployed at treatment plant inlets with the Tox'Amont device

ToxMate, a real-time biodetection station for micropollutants, is now configured for use upstream of WWTPs, to provide a better understanding of incoming pollutant loads.

Local authorities: Reinforce water quality control during drought!

As organizing authorities, local authorities are directly involved in the implementation of measures to preserve water quality. How can controls be strengthened to better prevent the risks of pollution, which are accentuated during periods of drought?

How to anticipate the revision of the Urban Wastewater Directive (UWWD)?

Although the revision of the Deru has fallen behind the initial schedule, the first texts should be available in the fall of 2023. A few broad outlines seem to emerge on the future developments, concerning the fight against micropollutants.

Drought: what solution in case of water withdrawal restrictions for industrialists?

This year, France is facing an unprecedented episode of winter drought, foreshadowing future periods of insufficient water resources. How can water-dependent industries preserve their activity in the likely context of future restrictions?
