Based on samples of the product spilt, Cedre can provide information on:
- the characteristics and physical and chemical behaviour of the product, so as to recommend the most efficient equipment to respond to the pollution.
- the toxicity and ecotoxicity of the product to, for instance, determine the areas in which fishing and the consumption of seafood should be banned.
- the efficiency of response equipment and products on the pollutant in question.
Cedre's facilities include a laboratory, an experimentation column, a flume tank for simulating pollutant weathering, a seawater basin (2,000 m²), a man-made beach (6,000 m²) and a greenhouse to study the contamination of living organisms.
