 The occurrence of water contaminants such as pesticides, industrial chemicals, heavy metals, nutrients, pathogens, etc. contributes to the pollution of waterways and river systems in the Philippines. This research will focus on the occurrence, levels and locational sources of Endocrine Disrupting compounds (EDCs) to provide up-to-date scientific data and information on emerging contaminants in aquatic systems in the country. The findings will also be useful in formulating guidelines on the prevention of EDCs contamination not only in wastewater treatment plant effluents and urban wastewaters but also in aquatic systems especially those that are used in aquaculture and domestic water production 






The aim of the project is to determine the occurrence, levels, and variations of endocrine disrupting compounds in waterways and river systems that reach aquatic systems.










Program Title: Removal of Excess Nitrogen and Endocrine disruptors from Wastewater 

Project Title: Post-wastewater Treatment determination of Endocrine Disrupting Compounds for Interventions 

Project Duration: 16 September 2022 – 15 September 2025 (3 Years)

Funding Agency: DOST - GIA

Monitoring Agency: DOST - PCIEERD

A program meeting was held at the Visayas State University last February 20-23, 2023. The meeting aims to harmonize the research activities of the six component projects under the DOST-GIA-funded program “Inter-regional Network through One-health Approach to Combat AMR” It also intends to visit and concretize a research collaboration with VSU in the Visayas region and discuss the nature and the details of the collaboration (MOA) per project.
