The analytical platform of the GR-CEL is temporarily closed because of the measures taken by EPFL and the Confederation against the very fast spread of COVID-19 outbreak in Switzerland.
- Nano- and microplastics in the environment
- Analysis of organic and inorganic micropollutants
- Antibiotic resistance in the environment
- Microbial communities in water, soils and sediments
The GR-CEL is equipped with cutting-edge instruments for the analysis of organic and inorganic compounds in various matrices.
"It's time to take the ecological crisis seriously"
In an opinion piece published in Le Temps, a group of 120 scientists – including 13 from EPFL’s School of Architecture, Civil and Environmental Engineering (ENAC) – offer a timely reminder of how our disregard for nature is to blame for the COVID-19 pandemic.

Nitrous oxide emissions set to rise in the Pacific Ocean
The acidification of the Pacific Ocean in northern Japan is increasing the natural production rate of N2O, an ozone-depleting greenhouse gas. That’s the finding of a study carried out jointly by scientists at EPFL, Tokyo Institute of Technology and Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology and appearing recently in Nature Climate Change.
