The aim of CHEMSTTRES is to develop a structured framework for assessment of chemical environmental hazards and risks in the highly industrialized and trade intensive Yangtze River Delta (YRD) region, with its commercial center, Shanghai.

The framework integrates;
• Study design, methods and evaluation
• Environmental assessments
• Ecotoxicological effect assessments

The research is conducted through method developments and assessments addressing a regional environment with highly complex mixtures of pollutants and strongly polluted water, soil and wildlife.

CHEMSTRRES is a research project aimed to feed in their results to risk management of chemicals and the environment, both in China and in the EU.

The project, which is lead by Professor Åke Bergman, is a cooperation between researchers at Stockholm University, the Swedish Museum of Natural History and at Tongji University.
