Prof. Josep Lluís Domingo has recently been interviewed in betevé. He talked about the high concentrations of dioxins reported in the surroundings of the municipal waste incinerator located in Sant Adrià del Besos (Barcelona). He asks for immediate measures to reduce the emissions of dioxins in the aforementioned facility, which were found up to 2.3 times the acceptable threshold.
You can watch the full interview in the following link.

The doctoral programme in Nanosciences, Materials and Chemical Engineering organises a day in which doctoral students have the opportunity to discuss their work and have it evaluated by a prestigious panel of experts during a platform and a poster exhibition sessions.
The TecnATox member María Ángeles Martínez presented her work in the platform session, which was entitled: "Comparing dietary and non-dietary source contribution of BPA and DEHP to prenatal exposure: A Catalonia (Spain) case study".

Dr. Jaume Folch, researcher in TecnATox, has recently published his third book entitled "El naufragi dels records. Què hi ha darrere de malalties com l'Alzheimer?" (The shipwreck of memories. What is behind Alzheimer disease?).
The book is about how the new advances in the understanding of the disease allow us to determine the origin and to influence on their prevention through diet or physical exercise, among others. You can find more information in the URV digital press release.
