Dr. Erwin Roex is an expert in the field of environmental risk assessment of chemicals. He has a broad experience and interest in several kinds of micropollutants as Plant Production Products, (veterinary) pharmaceuticals, nanoparticles and microplastics, mostly aiming at sources, fate and transport of these groups of compounds. Besides, he has an interest in efficient monitoring of micropollutants, thereby focusing on passive sampling as an innovative tool. Erwin is project leader of the Dutch Pollutant Release and Transfer Register (PRTR), a system in which the aqueous emissions of the most relevant sources and compounds are estimated and yearly updated. Erwin holds a PhD in aquatic ecotoxicology.
