Hans Peter Arp
Background and activities
My research interests intersect fundamental and applied aspects related to pollutants in the environment. On the fundamental level, I am interested into how different types of pollutants, such as microplastics, PFAS, PAHs, metals, behave in the environment and how they could pose a risk to man and the environment. On the applied level, I am interested in how to use this fundamental knowledge to design solutions within the context of emergning technologies and policy mechanisms, such as REACH and the circular economy, to create a pollution free society.
I am affiliated both the NTNU and the Norwegian Geotechnical Institute (NGI)
