February 2024 

The list of suspect chemical substances released by Offshore Wind Farms (OWF) has been consolidated as part of the ANEMOI Intereg North Sea project!
DERAC will now estimate their PBT properties to define a priority list of substances for risk assessment.
The aim is to establish whether these chemicals pose a risk to the marine ecosystem and to human consuming aquaculture products farmed in the OWF area.
