The JRC developed a method based on field-flow fractionation for the detection of nanoparticles in a titanium dioxide material. This method has the potential to be applied for the characterisation of several non-coated and commercially available titanium dioxide materials, some of them authorised and used as feed additives in the European market.

JRC scientists evaluated sources of air pollutants in the Danube macro-region, a necessary step for the design of action plans to improve air quality. The study showed residential heating contributed up to 35% of PM2.5 pollution in the main cities in the Danube macro-region, followed by agriculture (up to 32%), energy production and industry (up to 30%) and transport (up to 25%).

Scientists from the JRC and US-FDA have reviewed and summarised current challenges in biotoxin monitoring and proposed strategies for improving efficiency in food control laboratories. The main focus was on the developments from prototype methods to ready-to-use methods for end-users, as well as novel ways of interpreting analytical performance data from recent studies in a simplified way.
