JANUS expands the prioritization for PBT developed previously by the project PROMETHEUS

The German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety recently funded a new project, called JANUS (FKZ 3716 65 4140), to prioritize and screen substances, considering PBT (persistent, bioaccumulative and toxic), CMR (carcinogenic, mutagenic and reprotoxic) sustances, as well as chemicals supposed to be endocrine disruptors.

A consortium of three partners, Istituto di Ricerche Farmacologiche Mario Negri, Kode and KnowledgeMiner, will develop a platform within the JANUS project. JANUS further expands the previous prioritization project for PBT, called PROMETHEUS
