The EU project PROMISCES has defined the objective of understanding the origin, spreading and whereabouts of these pollutants which easily spread in the environment and are very persistent. "These harmful substances include polyfluorinated surfactants (PFT). From animal studies we know that they can promote the emergence of cancer," explains Matthias Zessner of the Vienna University of Technology. "Furthermore, it is suspected that several types of PFT can negatively affect the fertility of women and the male sperm maturation."

PROMISCES will develop concepts for a circular economy with a low level of pollutants for waters, soils and sediments in the private and public sector. For this purpose, the project partners have signed a € 12 million contract with the European Commission making PROMISCES part of the European Green Deal. 27 partners consisting of academic facilities, private companies, research centres and water supply companies from nine European countries have formed an interdisciplinary consortium. PROMISCES is focusing on seven case studies in different European regions confronted with pollution from chemicals. The Danube catchment area from the estuary to Budapest will be coordinated by researchers at the Vienna University of Technology.
