Environmental Fate

The environmental fate team at RIFCON handles all environmental compartments (soil, water, sediment and air). Environmental fate calculations and their inclusion in dossiers follow standard EU as well as country-specific criteria. Additionally, the team provides customised higher-tier modelling solutions.

Our experts are familiar with all standard e-fate software tools used in the EU as well as those used for country-specific registration (e.g. PELMO, MACRO, PEARL, PRZM, FOCUS Steps 1 and 2, SWASH, TOXSWA, EVA, Input Decision, GeoPEARL, GEM and others). Kinetic analyses are performed using ModelMakerĀ©, KinGUI or CAKE). We provide standard and country-specific PEC calculations for all compartments (soil, water, sediment and air) and prepare dossiers in compliance with current EU legislation for the registration of plant protection products and active substances. We also provide study monitoring, expert statements and authority replies, study evaluation and completeness checks. We further customise exposure and evaluation models and software for higher-tier modelling. We tailor spatial higher-tier analysis solutions to meet the needs of our clients using Geographical Information Systems (GIS). We closely collaborate with our field environmental fate experts to devise strategies and solutions. Via the commonly applied organism survival modelling (Toxicokinetic-Toxicodynamic: TK-TD) the e-fate team is also closely connected to the Ecotoxicology and Effect Modelling and Statistics teams, forming a reliable and effective foundation for any modelling exercise.
