File Turning waste into resources
As Europe grows wealthier it creates more and more rubbish. Every man, woman and child in the EU generates over a kilo of waste every day. Multiply that figure by nearly half a billion EU citizens and it quickly becomes clear that managing our waste without harming the environment is a major headache.

Highlight text/x-sh Hazardous substances in Europe’s fresh and marine waters – an overview
Hazardous substances in fresh and marine water can harm aquatic life and pose a risk to human health, according to a new report published today by the European Environment Agency (EEA). The report notes that while European legislation to address the issue is relatively strong, new challenges exist including ‘emerging pollutants’ where potential effects are not yet fully understood. More effort is also needed to ensure that chemicals are produced and used more sustainably.

Figure Aggregated assessment of hazardous substances in biota measured in the North East Atlantic, Baltic Sea and Mediterranean Sea; 1998-2010
The figure consists of seven maps showing the four regional seas, one map for each contaminant. Each map shows the locations where the contaminant was measured, and coloured to indicate which class was registered; green (Low concentration), yellow (Moderate concentration) or red (High concentration). In addition a pie chart is presented on the map showing the percent of each class within each of the four regional seas. Furthermore, any regional trend for a particular class is indicated by an arrow.

Indicator Assessment Hazardous substances in marine organisms (MAR 001) - Assessment published Mar 2015
In 2012, the concentrations of the eight assessed hazardous substances were generally: Low or Moderate for Hexachlorobenzene (HCB) and lindane; Moderate for cadmium, mercury, lead, dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane (DDT) and 6-Benzylaminopurine BAP; and Moderate or High for polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB).  A general downward trend was found between 2003 and 2012 in the North-East Atlantic for cadmium, lead, lindane, PCB, DDT and BAP, and also in the Baltic Sea for lindane and PCB. No trends could be calculated for the other regional seas.

Figure Aggregated assessment of hazardous substances in biota measured in the North East Atlantic, Baltic Sea, and Mediterranean Sea
The pies show the proportion of stations on map with low (green), moderate (yellow) and high (red) concentrations in the latest monitoring year for each of the seven hazardous substances. In the case of the three metals the boundary between moderate and high is set using foodstuff limits. The arrow indicates the general trend for each category where one can be identified

Publication Priority issues in the Mediterranean environment (revised version)
Following the principles of the European Thematic Strategy on the Protection and Conservation of the Marine Environment, the collective interest of EEA and UNEP/MAP has been developed towards a product focusing on priority pollution zones in the Mediterranean Sea and addressing emerging issues. All these issues come under the prism of an ecosystem approach. The core of this report derives from the latest (2003–2004) country National Diagnostic Analyses reports (NDA).
