The 1st conference on Potentially Toxic Elements - from environment to men, aims to bring together experts from academia, laboratories and industry to discuss the occurrence of potentially toxic elements and substances and its implications in the environment, food, pharmaceutical and industrial materials and human and animal health.
This conference follows two previous workshops organized in Caparica (2016) and Lisbon (2011) dealing with the interdisciplinary detection of heavy metals, now targeting a broader action on detection, analysis and monitoring of Potentially Toxic Elements (PTEs) and substances in Environment and Society, towards the United Nations 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda.
- Environmental analysis: atmospheric pollution, water quality;
- Geological analysis: soil contamination, mineral exploration;
