Scientists deem CWA threat at Nord Stream 2 negligible

2019.09.25 |

The sea bed around the new Nord Stream 2 pipe line has been surveyed for the environmental risks posed by Chemical Warfare Agents (CWA) dumped in the sea at the end of WW2. The results show the threat to be negligible according to a scientific report from DCE – Danish Centre for Environment and Energy.

Over the next three years, the researchers will strategically supplement the open source DNA sequence library for marine seabed animals from the North Sea. The database will remain accessible even after the GEANS project ends. (Photo: GEANS).
