Enviresearch Foundation Day 2019

The Enviresearch Foundation Day was a great success. We hosted four schools, three students and three presenters. It was wonderful celebrating our achievements over the year. We were particularly excited to hear from some of the students who have benefited from our funding. Our three presenters and three demonstrators were a big hit and thoroughly engaged attendees of all ages.

This year we have funded four travel grants, four summer bursaries and nine community and school group trips. We are looking forward to another year of giving!

Gaining Technical Equivalence for your sources of pesticide active substances

As part of the approval process for active substances under the plant protection products regulation (Regulation (EU) No. 1107/2009) a ‘reference’ technical specification is set for the source of active substance technical material considered for the approval. The ‘source’ of an active substance is defined by its manufacturing site, whilst its technical specification defines the minimum purity of the active substance and the limit of significant and (eco)toxicologically relevant impurities present in the technical material.

'This is the data age. We started this work because we felt that the way we assess pesticide risk to ground water was not keeping pace with our understanding of the world. The normal way to assess a risk is to provide a few predictions of pesticide concentrations in a few sites. If any of them are too high then the pesticide is considered ‘unsafe’ and the authorities may reject it for a whole country. We were trying to find a way to for authorities to say ‘You can’t use it everywhere, but it will be safe enough in some places.’
