Researchers support global management of plastic waste
The management of plastics and plastic waste is a global problem which requires extensive collaboration among several disciplines and different parts of the world to come up with adequate solutions to reduce the impact of plastics in the aquatic environment. The Ocean Plastics Charter 6 (2018) highlighted a need to promote collaboration on research to identify the sources and fate of plastics along with their impact on the environment including human health. Such collaborations have been established in some areas of the world such as Europe, Africa, and India however they need to be improved elsewhere.

RECETOX – short movie from TEAMING kick-off meeting
Check the movie, which has been taken during the kick-off meeting of the TEAMING project. It explains not only the focus of the project, but also of the RECETOX center.
Our research groups focus on environmental contaminants. They study their behavior in the environment, employ advanced techniques for modeling their long-distance transport and bioaccumulation in living organisms, as well as their health effects on organisms, humans, and populations.
“At RECETOX, we deal with interdisciplinary research and education in the area of environment and health.”prof. Jana Klánová

Research Infrastructure (RI)
RECETOX provides technologies and services through its unique core facilities:
- Trace Analytical Laboratories
- Population studies
- Information systems
Science and Society
RECETOX closely cooperates with national and international institutions in implementing international treaties and conventions, through the National Center for Toxic Compounds and the Stockholm Convention Regional Center.
Doing so, ensures that the outputs of research and development activities are translated into policy – forming new legislation or contributing to bans on production of harmful substances or the products containing them.
