Arsenic uptake by humans from drinking water is known to produce worldwide serious health problems. However, the information about the occurrence of this element in water and its health effects on the population is very limited and dispersed. In addition, adequate low-cost methods to remove arsenic from water are mostly developed on laboratory scale, but not yet proved on field scale or even applied to solve the problems of the affected population.
Participants of IBEROARSEN bring 23 research groups from 10 countries of Latin America, Spain and Portugal together. Their aim is to promote joint actions and assistance to collect and to exchange the available information about the occurrence and the methodological and analytical methods to determination arsenic in natural systems of the region and to find effective methods for arsenic removal. This will also contribute to obtain appropriate solutions to the health problems related to arsenic ingestion that affect —mostly poor and isolated villages— in Latin America.
Three main aspects focus on:
1) Occurrence of arsenic in water, sediments and soils.
2) Analytical methods for the determination and speciation of arsenic in different environments (e.g., water, sediment, soil).
3) Low-cost technologies for arsenic removal.
