Using benchmarking to strengthen the assessment of persistence
(English)Manuscript (preprint) (Other academic)
Chemical persistence is a key property for assessing chemical risk and chemical hazard. Current methods for evaluating persistence are questionable, since the relationship between conditions in the environment and conditions in the laboratory tests employed to evaluate persistence is often unclear. Chemical benchmarking opens new possibilities to measure persistence in the field. In this paper we explore how the benchmarking approach can be applied in both the laboratory and the field to deepen our understanding of chemical persistence in the environment and create a solid scientific basis for laboratory to field extrapolation of persistence test results.
