  • Mercury Hazards to Living Organisms

    Complex and ever changing in its forms and functions, the element mercury follows a convoluted course through the environment and up the food chain. The process is complicated further by the fact that the difference between tolerable natural background levels and harmful effects in the environment is exceptionally small and still not completely ...

  • The Politics of Chemical Risk: Scenarios for a Regulatory Future

    All industrial countries have developed regulatory systems to assess and manage the risk of chemical substances to the working and natural environment. The pressure to harmonize these often specialized regulatory systems is increasingly strong at the international level. Such harmonization not only entails the assessment of particular ...

  • Toxicological Risk Assessment of Chemicals: A Practical Guide

    Unlike many existing books on toxicology that cover either toxicity of a particular substance or toxicity of chemicals on particular organ systems, Toxicological Risk Assessment of Chemicals: A Practical Guide lays out the principle activities of conducting a toxicological risk assessment, including international approaches and methods for the ...

  • Corporate Social Responsibility in Europe

    The acid test of corporate social responsibility (CSR) is simply this: does it lead to positive impacts on society and the environment or is it just rhetoric? And if it does lead to positive impacts, how can these be enhanced? This timely book tackles this cutting-edge challenge by presenting empirical findings from a range of surveys and in-depth ...

  • Chemical and Radiation Environmental Risk Management at the Crossroads Report

    The environmental risk management challenges facing this nation today require that we break down the barriers that separate the chemical and radiation risk approaches. This process of risk harmonization is aimed at creating a consistent (but not inflexible) framework in which chemical and radiation risks can be managed to protect successfully ...

  • Chemicals in the Environment

    Rising concern in recent years over the possible adverse environmental consequences of the use of chemicals has led to a steady increase in national activity towards greater regulation, as well as voluntary agreements with manufacturers for risk management of certain products. This book begins by reviewing the current framework of legislation for ...

  • Modelling of Environmental Chemical Exposure and Risk

    Mathematical models are being increasingly used to estimate the concentrations of a wide range of substances in the environment for a variety of reasons, including government control and legislation, and risk and hazard estimation. Exposure assessment has to be performed for many types of substances, including pesticides, industrial ...
