    Pesticides in the air - Launch of annual and national monitoring

    After the 2019 National Exploratory Campaign to measure pesticide residues in ambient air (CNEP, Campagne nationale exploratoire des pesticides), Atmo France together with approved air quality monitoring associations (AASQA, Associations agréées de surveillance de la qualité de l'air) and the National Institute for Industrial Environment and Risks (Ineris), as part of its activities for the Central Laboratory for Monitoring Air Quality (LCSQA, Laboratoire central de surveillance de la qualité de l’air), launched at national level, on Tuesday 20 July 2021, the long-term monitoring of pesticides in the air (mainland and overseas territories).
    The first data will be available in summer 2022, based on Geod’Air1 air quality data, and PhytAtmo pesticide measurements.

    Characterization of endocrine disruptors: the Institute's EASZY test at the heart of the new OECD guidelines

    The Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) has recently adopted and published a new guideline, Guideline 250, to characterise endocrine disruptors. This new guideline is based on an original biological test, the EASZY test, the result of academic research carried out jointly by the National Institute for Industrial Environment and Risks (Verneuil-en-Halatte), Irset (Rennes) and Academia Sinica (Taiwan) since the early 2000s.

    Air quality mapping: SESAM, the new tool for using low-cost sensor measurements

    Miniaturised and low-cost instruments are being increasingly used to measure ambient air quality and their deployment gives unprecedented spatial and temporal observational cover. The SESAM (data fusion with SEnSors for Air quality Mapping) tool was developed by the National Institute for Industrial Environment and Risks as part of its work for the Central Laboratory for Monitoring Air Quality (LCSQA). It serves to map pollutant concentrations at the urban level, by merging these new observations with those coming from more conventional methods and the calculations of an air quality model.

    Invitation to submit innovative operational projects to manage industrial risks: 4 successes for the French National Institute for Industrial Environment and Risks (INERIS)

    The fire that broke out at the Lubrizol premises and Normandy Logistics in September 2019 was a reminder of the importance of maintaining control and industrial risk management in a densely built-up urban setting. Against this background, the Agence nationale de la recherche (National Research Agency (ANR)) has joined together with the Normandy and Hauts-de-France regions in 2020 to launch an invitation to submit SIOMRI (Solutions Innovantes et Opérationnelles dans la Maitrise des Risques Industriels en milieu urbain et denses) (Innovative, Operational Solutions in Industrial Risk Control in densely built-up urban settings) “research-action” projects. Four of the Institute’s projects have been accepted.
