FRAM Seminar: Time to Reflect on a Chemical-Safe World

Research profile seminar

The lecture will address chemicals in relation to the complex grid in which they play a role for development of sustainability. The presentation is related to the majority of the SDGs in which chemicals are of key importance.

Chemicals and their exogenous and endogenous reactions and interactions form the base of all life on earth. In the Anthropocene era, i.e. the most recent 150 years, manmade chemicals have been created, refined from natural sources in millions or unintentionally formed through abiotic processes in uncountable numbers. The Anthropocene chemistry has had major impact on human life and the environment for the good and the bad. The hazards and risks due to exposures to chemicals, ubiquitously present in different combinations in the environment and in biota, are threatening life and interrupted sustainability of life.

The lecture will address chemicals in relation to the complex grid in which they play a role for development of sustainability. The presentation is related to the majority of the SDGs in which chemicals are of key importance.

Lecturer: Åke Bergman is professor in Environmental Chemistry since 1993 at Stockholm University and is nowadays Senior professor there, Guest professor at Örebro University and Chair Researcher at Tongji University in Shanghai. Bergman has a broad interdisciplinary approach with focus on organic environmental chemistry with emphasis on persistent organic pollutants and related compounds. He has worked with chemical synthesis, reactivity and analysis, and kinetics of environmental pollutants, and has a long-lasting interest in research on endocrine disrupting chemicals and mixtures of chemicals. He has contributed to the scientific community with more than 500 scientific publications/reports, as PI of many EU and nationally funded research projects and has served in numerous national and international expert groups and review panels. He has been main supervisor of 30 Ph.D. students and is the founder of teaching Environmental Chemistry at Stockholm University. He is also engaged in the societal debate.
