Mr. Simion Bartilol (Principal Technologist, INST) represented Prof. Gatari during the inception workshop on The Southern Contaminants Programme (SCP) held in Guangzhou Institute of Geochemistry (GIG), China from 26th to 27th May 2018. The purpose of the meeting was to exchange experiences and ideas on research in environmental sciences and to identify areas of mutual interest for collaboration

The goal of SCP is to assess chemical pollution in the environment of the low-latitude coastal regions of Asia and Africa, along with the development of a sustainable collaboration network along the 21st-century Maritime Silk Road (MSR).  The first phase of the program will last for 3 years (2017-2019) and is funded by the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) as part of its Belt & Road Initiatives and managed GIG.

The target pollutants of SCP are persistent toxic substances (PTS), e. g. persistent organic pollutants (POPs) and heavy metals (HMs); and various emerging contaminants (ECs), such as pharmaceuticals and personal care products (PPCPs).

 The main research topics of SCP include

  1. PTS/ECs in the urban atmosphere; 
  2. Biomonitoring of PTS/ECs in coastal waters;
  3. ECs in wastewater and river waters; and
  4. PTS/ECs exposure and risk linked to solid waste disposal sites and landfills. 

SCP provides its participants with training and academic exchange opportunities in China where they are hosted by the State Key Laboratory of Organic Geochemistry (SKLOG) in GIG for laboratory access and technical support.
