Developmental effects of fuel oils on early life stages of atlantic cod (Gadus morhua)
Unravelling the composition-influence on toxicity of offshore produced water using high-resolution gas and liquid chromatography mass spectrometry
The effect of intrinsic properties, UV-degradation and biofilm formation on the fate of microplastic fibers in the marine environment
The use of PAH, metabolite and lipid profiling to assess exposure and effects of produced water discharges on pelagic copepods
Several laboratory studies have demonstrated that exposure to oil components cause toxicity to copepods, however, this has never been shown in natural populations of copepods. In the present study, we sampled copepods in an area of the North Sea with high density of oil production platforms discharg...
The impact of plastic and car tire rubber leachates on the Mediterranean mussel Mytilus galloprovincialis
The widespread ocean contamination by plastic materials is cause of increasing concerns on the potential detrimental consequences they might produce on marine ecosystems. Although many recent studies addressed ingestion and effects of micro/nanoplastics on most marine taxa, the risks posed by leache...
Chemical composition and ecotoxicity of plastic and car tire rubber leachates to aquatic organisms
Most thermoplastics contain a variety of additive chemicals that can represent a high percentage of the final plastic materials (up to 50%). The current study characterised the chemical content of freshwater and marine leachates produced from CTR, PP, PET, PS and PVC, and assessed their adverse effe...
Crumb rubber toxicity in coastal marine systems
Crumb rubber granulate (CRG) produced from end of life tires (ELTs) is commonly applied on indoor and outdoor synthetic turf pitches (STPs), playgrounds, safety surfaces and walkways. In addition to fillers, stabilizers, cross-linking agents and secondary components (e.g. pigments, oils, resins, fib...
