The establishment of EVISA is funded by the EU through the Fifth Framework Programme (G7RT- CT- 2002- 05112).

Supporters of EVISA includes:

Speciation analysis applied to industrial issues: Waste management, Semi-conductors, Petroleum products, Car and electroplating industries, Cement industries, Mining industries

Industrial processes are looking for cost effectiveness. Using the speciated information with regards to the chemical species involved in industrial process or environmental related issues always translate to improve overall management. In many instances, evolution of legislation requires lowering the amount of chemical species used in the industrial process. Nowadays, instrumentation and sample preparation allows determining most of the species of industrial interest in routine configuration providing cost effectiveness, return on investment and objective risk assessment.
The objective of this course is to provide an in depth overview of the legislative aspect related to major industrial sectors where speciation is of concern and have hand-on experienced with routine instrumentation to improve industrial procedures. The example selected from different industrial applications will provide the attendees with a global understanding of speciation analysis.
