is a relatively young discipline, mainly concerned
the origin, formation, burden, distribution, enrichment, decomposition, effects and ultimately the fate of anthropogenic and native substances in the environment. the natural biogeochemical cycles, with their equilibria the critical evaluation of substances and the minimalisation/ elimination of problem substances by technical and biotechnical means. the characteristic intercompartmental (water, ground, air, biota) experimental examination of a substance's behaviour and transport and their theoretical description through modelling which are critical in the evaluation of a substance's properties.
