First week after short New Year holidays, co-workers from the Department of Environmental Sciences, dr. Jože Kotnik, dr. Igor Živković, and Jan Gačnik performed sampling and measurement of different mercury fractions in flue gases of the Cement Plant Anhovo. Work was conducted within planned field samplings of the MercOx project.
2020 was a special year in all aspects, but that did not stop our researchers from being outstanding in their work. In front of you is a brochure that captures the most remarkable achievements of our Department.
Great news from the International Atomic Energy Agency: our department achieved excellent results and was among the best participating laboratories at the latest International Water Isotope Inter-Comparison Test (WICO) for the analysis of stable isotope composition of oxygen and hydrogen (δ18O and δ2H) in different environmental water samples with isotope-ratio mass spectrometry.

At the International Conference on Mercury as a Global Pollutant (ICMGP) 2019 in Krakow EMPIR Project Coordinator Milena Horvat from the Jožef Stefan Institute was awarded the Life Achievement Award for mercury research.
Does your research include citizen science and use of novel emerging low-cost technologies? In our review article, we explore how to keep citizen science volunteers committed in long-term participation.
Marine waters in Gulf of Trieste with Soča/Idrijca river systems are very interesting for mercury research as area include world second biggest Hg mine in Idrija and its influence area, influences of World War I. from upper Soča valley, and cement industry in lower Soča flow.
