Pharmaceutical emissions to the Baltic Sea

The map service presents the calculation background and selected results from a calculation model (Baltic Pharma Load model, BPL) developed as a part of the project CWPharma (Clear Waters from Pharmaceuticals 2017-2020) to help estimate the emissions of selected pharmaceuticals into the Baltic Sea environment. The map presents selected results for three pharmaceuticals: diclofenac, carbamazepine and ibuprofen. These results focus on the estimated loads to and from different regions, and present estimated concentrations in river mouths and coastal areas. More comprehensive results describing the calculation model and the calculation exercise carried out as a part of the project CWPharma are available in the report Äystö et al. 2020. With this map service, the viewer can browse the calculation results. The map service was compiled by the Finnish environment institute (SYKE).

Clear Waters from Pharmaceuticals (CWPharma 2017-2020) was a project funded by the EU’s Interreg Baltic Sea Region Programme and supported by EUSBSR Policy Area Hazards as an integrated part of a flagship on Pharmaceuticals in the environment – a Baltic Sea Region cooperation platform. The project aimed at filling knowledge gaps related to the occurrence, emissions and risks of pharmaceuticals into the Baltic Sea environment. It strived to increase the awareness of policymakers, regulators and permitting authorities on environmental risks, enable the implementation of emission reduction schemes, and eventually decrease the emissions of active pharmaceutical ingredients into Baltic Sea region environment.
