Castellón, September 14, 2018 - IPROMA, the Gimeno Group company specializing in analysis, rapid detection methods and consulting on industrial, food and environmental hygiene, has participated in the 10th European Conference on Pesticides and Related Organic Micropollutants in the Environment & 16th Symposium on Chemistry and Fate of Modern Pesticides in Bologna.

The congress, which aims to research issues related to the characterization of current and emerging pollutants, analytical techniques for their determination and their influence on the environment, has served to bring together a large number of specialists and researchers from different sectors generating a great added value to this meeting.

In this context, Javier Rambla, expert in methods of analysis of organic micropollutants at IPROMA, has released the latest advances of the LIFE STO3RE Project, funded by the LIFE program of the European Commission, focusing his speech on the analytical developments that have led to IPROMA for the determination of organic micropollutants in agricultural sludge.

Javier has emphasized the importance of the development of increasingly sensitive analytical techniques capable of detecting these pollutants at very low levels, as well as the difficulties involved in carrying out these determinations in complex matrices.

IPROMA, which has developed a pioneering technique for the determination of these pollutants, is also one of the few laboratories nationwide specialized in emerging pollutants.

The participation of IPROMA in this congress demonstrates the commitment of the organization to be at the forefront in the technical advances of the sector.

The LIFE STO3RE consortium (Ref.LIFE14/ENV/ES/000150) is composed of 5 partners, FACSA, IPROMA, AINIA, ESAMUR and CEBAS-CSIC, with a total budget of 1,957,874 euros and a duration of 40 months.
