Revue de I’Energic, Apr. 1995, (467), 248-265. The ExtemE project, begun jointly in 1991 by the European Commission and the U.S. Department of Energy, consists in establishing an accounting framework for evaluating the external environmental costs of enerav. So far, tbe project has concentrated on the main forms of energy u2 for producing electricity. The environmental costs of coal technologies, nuclear, as, petroleum, and certain renewables (hydraulic, wind) have been evaBuated for European locations. Some thirty research teams have been participating in the project in Europe. The project was original1 prompted by the desire to establish a wmmon concept based on physica r, techrucal and economic evaluation methods, and on new clarified definitiosn of external costs that would be tbe same in the various countries and for future users. The article presents the main wnclusions of the project at early 1995.

When evaluated this way, these external costi are sometimes high. But this external costs figure is meaningful only if we remember exactly what is being evaluated and what the inherent uncertainties are in the evaluation method. In order for external costs to enter into common use as an analytical tool, such informationmust be expressed in terms the unspecialized public can understand.

Nohava, M. et al., Environment Ink, 1995, 21, (1). 33-37. Investigations of toxic effects of water samples from industrial plants and landfii effluents on bioluminescent bacteria were carried out. The results of a standard&d bioassay (LUMIStox) were compared to chemical analysis data (heavy metal concentrations, COD, and BOD). A reduction of bioluminescent activity was observed in most of the samples. The degree of reduction showed good correlation with the concentration of anorganic and organic pollutant indicators.
