About the Project

PROMISCES: Preventing Recalcitrant Organic Mobile Industrial chemicalS for Circular Economy in the Soil-sediment-water system

The increasing water consumption and the impacts of climate change reinforce the need for industrial water reuse and sustainable circular business models.


identify how industrial pollution in the soil-sediment-water system hinders the circular economy with a focus on per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS).

provide innovative technologies to prevent chemical pollution in the environment

develop new analytical methods and tools to provide data on persistent, mobile (PM) substances

assess risks for human health from PM substances

create a decision support tool and policy recommendations

The PROMISCES Project is funded by the European Union under the Horizon 2020 Framework Programme to support Europe’s Green Deal. It runs from November 2021 to May 2025.
