There are many changes in marine ecology taking place in European seas. This thesis contributes to the need to understand the economic implications of these changes and to formulate management strategies. To do so, the thesis is divided into two parts which consider marine ecological change within two distinct sub-topics. Firstly, in Part A, this thesis focuses on economic analysis of marine invasive species. Invasive species are taxa that have been introduced outside of their native range (IUCN, 2000). These introduced taxa may then be detrimental to economic output and lead to biodiversity loss and reduced ecological services (Frésard and Boncoeur, 2006). Secondly, Part B concerns International Fisheries Agreements (IFAs). IFAs aim to ensure profitable and sustainable fishing when multiple countries have an interest in a given fish stock (Hilborn et al., 2005). Part B focuses on the impacts of changing fish stock location and possible fish stock collapse on the success of IFAs. The topics in Parts A and B represent important contemporary concerns in Europe, as reflected by the focus on these topics within the EU Seventh Framework Program project named VECTORS (, to which the research in this thesis has contributed.

Removal of micropollutants in source separated sanitation [PhD thesis]

Source separated sanitation is an innovative sanitation method designed for minimizing use of energy and clean drinking water, and maximizing reuse of water, organics and nutrients from waste water. This approach is based on separate collection and treatment of toilet wastewater (black water) and the rest of the domestic wastewater (grey water). Different characteristics of wastewater streams facilitate recovery of energy, nutrients and fresh water. To ensure agricultural or ecological reuse of liquid and solid products of source separated sanitation, the quality of these materials has to meet (future) standards, i.e. for micropollutant concentrations. Therefore the objectives of this thesis included assessment of micropollutant content of source separated sanitation products intended for resource recovery and examination of post-treatment technologies for micropollutant mitigation within source separated sanitation
