PĂ´le ecotox of Rovaltain is a Large Scale Facility planned for the environmental toxicology and ecotoxicology research. It will be built in 2013 in order to study stressors of physical origin (ionising and non-ionising radiation, uses of the environment, construction), chemical origin (agricultural products, residue from combustion and industrial activity, household products and medicines etc.) and biological origin (proteins, DNA fragments, plant and animal toxins, and even potentially pathogenic microorganisms) which can affect both human health and that of other living organisms inhabiting our planet.

This facility will enable work to be carried out that would otherwise be impossible in normal laboratory conditions.
