PARLEMENT EUROPEEN - Réponse à question E-003698/2021 Hausse de la contamination aux métaux lourds

Arsenic, cuivre, mercure ou encore cadmium sont concernés et peuvent avoir des conséquences désastreuses pour la santé. Parmi les sources d’exposition, on compte les produits issus de la mer, les céréales (bio ou non) ou encore les légumes issus de l’agriculture biologique. En Janvier 2019, la Commission a autorisé pour sept années supplémentaires l’utilisation du cuivre dans l’agriculture biologique, en dépit des avertissements de l’Autorité européenne de sécurité des aliments. En matière de flux maritime, et ce afin d’échapper aux récentes normes environnementales, les armateurs de cargos ont équipé leurs navires d’épurateurs permettant de rejeter diverses substances toxiques dans l’eau plutôt que dans l’air.

Il en résulte un accroissement de la pollution maritime et de la toxicité des produits de consommation issus des océans. 1. 2. 3. INT. J. ENVIRON. RES.

The aim of the study was to analyse correlations and variability between the levels of mineral elements (Fe, Mn, Zn, Cu, Na, K, Ca and Mg) and toxic metals (Pb and Cd) in the longissimus lumborum muscle, hair and selected organs of red deer (Cervus elaphus L.).

ANIMALS 25/04/21 The Levels of Mineral Elements and Toxic Metals in the Longissimus lumborum Muscle, Hair and Selected Organs of Red Deer (Cervus elaphus L.) in Poland

The levels of mineral elements were measured using atomic absorption spectroscopy (F-AAS). The levels of Pb and Cd were analysed by means of electrothermal atomic absorption spectroscopy (ET-AAS). Of all analysed microelements, the highest concentration (in g·kg−1 of dry weight) was found for Fe in the liver. Considering all macroelements, the highest level was found for K in the longissimus lumborum muscle. Particularly remarkable was the high level of Pb in the muscle and hair of red deer.

FOOD SAFETY NEWS 17/05/20 Finland assesses heavy metals risk from foods

The Finnish Food Authority (Ruokavirasto) studied the exposure of working-age and elderly people to cadmium, lead, arsenic, mercury, nickel and aluminum via food and drinking water. The magnitude of lead and inorganic arsenic intake was such that health hazards could not be ruled out, but their probability is low or at most moderate.

TOXICS 01/10/19 Biomonitoring of Trace Elements in Hair of Schoolchildren Living Near a Hazardous Waste Incinerator—A 20 Years Follow-Up (étude espagnole) Since 1998, a monitoring program is periodically performed to assess the environmental and human health impact of air chemicals potentially emitted by a hazardous waste incinerator (HWI) located in Constantí (Catalonia, Spain).

TOXICS 01/10/19 Biomonitoring of Trace Elements in Hair of Schoolchildren Living Near a Hazardous Waste Incinerator—A 20 Years Follow-Up (étude espagnole)

In 2017, samples of hair were collected from 94 schoolchildren (aged 10–13 years) living nearby and the levels of 11 trace elements (As, Be, Cd, Cr, Hg, Mn, Ni, Pb, Sn, Tl and V) were determined. The concentrations showed the following descending order: Pb > Hg > Ni > Sn > Mn > Cr. In turn, As, Be and Tl were not detected, while Cd and V were found only in a few samples. Some metal levels were significantly, positively correlated. FSAI - 2016 - Metals of Toxicological Importance in the Irish Diet.

Rising groundwater is causing iron from former and active opencast brown coal mines in Brandenburg and Saxony to flow into the Spree and its tributaries.

PARLEMENT EUROPEEN - Réponse à question E-001793/2018 Iron hydroxide slurry at the bottom of the Spree and its surrounding waters

The iron hydroxide this is forming is turning the river waters brown, and is being deposited at the bottom of the riverbed. The Commission rightfully said in its response (E-005334/2017 of 16 October 2017) to the question I posed on 21 August 2017 that the aforementioned iron hydroxide slurry came from brown coal mines, and should thus be viewed as mineral waste. 1. What is the Commission’s view on the iron hydroxide slurry deposited at the bottom of the Spree, its tributaries and lakes in the area in light of the fact that said iron hydroxide has been introduced into the water by opencast brown coal mining with respect to the Mining Waste Directive?

PARLEMENT EUROPEEN - Réponse à question E-004704-17 Water protection (concerne les métaux lourds)

Established in 2001, this forum that comprises Member States and stakeholders, has generated many state of the art tools which are available to water managers all over the EU(1). The Commission regularly assesses the quality of the implementation of the Water Framework Directive (WFD)(2) and provides recommendations to Member States whenever it identifies implementation gaps. The most recent example is the fourth implementation report adopted in March 2015(3). The Commission is currently assessing the latest River Basin Management Plans, which were due by 22 March 2016, with the aim of preparing a report on implementation addressed to the Parliament and the Council that will include the monitoring aspects of the WFD.

PARLEMENT EUROPEEN - Réponse à question E-008694-16 Serious environmental problem caused by heavy metal releases from the San Fins mines (Lousame, Galicia) Mining at San Fins (Lousame, Galicia) is causing a serious environmental and public health problem because river waters are being contaminated by mining waste and the resulting concentrations of heavy metals, especially cadmium, are above the limits set by environmental quality standards.

PARLEMENT EUROPEEN - Réponse à question E-008694-16 Serious environmental problem caused by heavy metal releases from the San Fins mines (Lousame, Galicia)

The heavy metals are discharged into the Ria de Muros e Noia in such quantities as to entail possible adverse effects on the shellfish beds on which the area depends economically. The effects on the ria might be serious if the dam built, and later abandoned, by the mining concession company were to burst; this would gravely endanger the health of the local people and the local economy, given that there are millions of cubic metres of mining waste impounded by the dam. — Will the Commission insist that the governments concerned put a stop to the heavy metal releases from the mines, especially those affecting the waters which pass through the disused tailings dam into the river channel? Environment International Volume 88, March 2016, Pages 299–309 Heavy metals in agricultural soils of the European Union with implications for food safety. Open Access Highlights The concentration of heavy metals including As, Cd, Cr, Cu, Hg, Pb, Zn, Sb, Co and Ni in soil of the EU was assessed.

An estimated 6.24% or 137,000 km2 agricultural land needs local assessment and eventual remediation action. A need for a comprehensive monitoring of HM in soil in the European Union is proposed. FOOD PACKAGING FORUM 22/02/16 Metals in ceramics and crystalware EU reference laboratory for FCMs tests metal release from decorated ceramics and crystalware into wine and wine-simulants; migration of lead, cadmium and other metals detected. In December 2015, the EU Reference Laboratory for food contact materials (EURL-FCM) of the European Commission’s (EC) Joint Research Centre (JRC) published two reports on the release of metals from decorated articles and crystalware, respectively, in support of the revision of the Ceramic Directive (84/500/EEC). In the scope of the second report, the release of metals from 15 samples of crystalware was investigated. Four different methods were used to test metal release: 1) Exposing samples to 4% aqueous acetic acid (AA4%) for 24 hours at 22°C, 2) exposing samples to 0.5% aqueous citric acid (CA0.5%) for two hours at 70°C, 3) pre-conditioning samples with 10% aqueous acetic acid for five hours followed by exposure to AA4% for 24 hours at 22°C, and 4) exposing samples to acidic white wine for 24 hours at 22°C.

PARLEMENT EUROPEEN - Réponse à question E-002360-15 Project for the experimental storage of energy using highly toxic substances in the protected area of Cabo Vilán, Galicia. Cabo Vilán — part of Europe's biodiversity heritage — is a special area of conservation (ZEC ES1110005) and a special protection area for birds (ZEPA ES0000176) within the Natura network. A risk situation is being created by the Gas Natural Fenosa electricity company’s plan to set up an experimental plant for the electrochemical storage of energy, using redox flow vanadium batteries and two large tanks containing toxic and corrosive substances: vanadium sulphate and sulphuric acid.

Despite the high toxicity of the substances to be used in the pilot project for the storage of electricity generated by wind turbines, the Galician Government decided not to subject the project to environmental assessment, claiming that ‘it is unlikely to have a significant impact’. According to the Master Plan for the Natura Network in Galicia, this project would be subject to paragraph 4, ‘exclusion of activities’, group 2.1 on changes to wind farms that are subject to compulsory environmental assessment.

Certaines enquêtes menées dans les États membres de l’Union concernant la teneur en métaux lourds des aliments ont montré que les légumes provenant de zones industrielles où l’aquifère et le sol sont pollués par les déchets des installations industrielles contiennent plus de métaux lourds, voire plus de 700 % (par exemple, de chrome, de nickel et/ou de cadmium) que les légumes cultivés dans d’autres zones.

En outre, plusieurs recherches épidémiologiques montrent que la pollution chimique des sols et de l’aquifère, qui résulte en l’accumulation accrue de métaux lourds dans l’organisme des habitants, est directement liée à des carcinogenèses. Le caractère dangereux de ces substances pour l’homme est l’objet de la législation communautaire existante qui vise à réduire l’utilisation du plomb, du mercure, du cadmium, du chrome hexavalent dans les appareils électriques et électroniques (directive 2002/95).
