Emerging Contaminants in our environment

Emerging Contaminants in our environment

Thallium is one example of Technology Critical Elements (TCE) as emerging contaminants. Thallium is used for various high-technology products (optics, electronics or even medicine). It is only used in small amounts, but because of its unique characteristics it has become an important raw material in modern consumer electronics. Nevertheless, Thallium is toxic. Since Thallium is also a by-product of mining processes and is transferred into natural water and soil supplies, it is important to identify Thallium concentrations in food plants and water respectively.
