Environmental Fate & Metabolism

Introduction of any Chemical to the environment leads to contamination of Soil. Water & Air. So, it is very important to Study the Environmental Fate & Metabolism of such Chemicals, particularly for Pesticides, which are Toxic in nature. The basic Objective of these Studies are

  • To predict the distribution, fate and behavior of the chemical in the environment, as well as the time courses involved (i.e. estimate the concentration in soil, water and air and assess how these concentrations compare with any permissible limits or standards)
  • To identify measures necessary to minimize contamination of the environment and impact on non-target species in conjunction with other data
  • To permit a decision to be made as to whether the chemicals can be approved in conjugation with other considerations
  • To classify the product as to environmental risk in conjugation with other data
  • To specify relevant risk and safety phrases for the protection of the environment, which are to be included in the labels
