Huang Chen’s paper ‘The distribution of persistent, mobile and toxic (PMT) pharmaceuticals and personal care products monitored across Chinese water resources’ was published in JHM recently. This has been the first trial in China to screen PMT chemicals in water. Congratulations!
- First PMT assessment for over 400 pharmaceuticals and personal care products (PPCPs).
- Compilation of PPCPs in Chinese surface water, drinking water & groundwater.
- Over a third of PPCPs detected in water suspected to meet the PMT criteria.
- Efforts to reduce emissions of PMT-PPCPs in China are encouraged.
On November 11-12, Shizhen and Jin Biao attended attended the 15th POP Forum in Shanghai. Both of them made oral presentation and attracted lots of audience and fans. Shizhen talked about unintentionally produced PCBs in Chinese cities, Jin Biao presented his opinion on PMTs. Huang Chen also participated. The team met Lin Tian（林田）, Tang Jianhui （唐建辉），Zhao Zhen （赵祯）and Wang Lifang （王丽芳） on the meeting.
Jin Biao and Huang Chen deliver their viewpoints on persistent mobile toxic (PMT) in ES&T, ‘The Need to Adopt an International PMT Strategy to Protect Drinking Water Resources’. This is a great success in managing the PMT topic by the group. Hope to see further substantial progress in this very new and important area. Congratulations!
