BIO216 Toxicology-students visited Equinor

On Tuesday this week, the students in BIO216 went on a company visit to Equinor at Sandsli. The students learned more about Equinor’s extensive use and handling of chemicals, risk assessments, toxicity testing, environmental impact and HSE. A shift to “green” chemicals and the phasing out of substances that are toxic and accumulate in nature were discussed, as well as how “new” threats such as e.g. microplastics must be taken into account. The students had the opportunity to ask critical and follow-up questions to the host.
