Evaluation of Persistence and Long-Range Transport Potential of Organic. Existing methods used to screen chemical inventories for hazardous substances that may pose risks to humans and the environment are evaluated with a holistic mass balance modeling approach. The model integrates persistence (P), bioaccumulation (B), toxicity (T), and quantity (Q) information for a specific substance to assess chemical exposure, hazard, and by:

The long-range transport (LRT) of organic chemicals in the environment is reviewed, with particular focus on the role of environmental fate and transport models and the relationship between model Author: Martin Scheringer.

These include metrics of persistence and long-range transport potential that re ect a chemical's tendency to be widely distributed, to form long-lived reservoirs in the environment, and to lead to.

Institute of Environmental Systems Research, University of Osnabrück, D Osnabrück, Germany, Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zürich, CH Zürich, Switzerland, SwCited by: Persistent organic pollutants (POPs), sometimes known as "forever chemicals" are organic compounds that are resistant to environmental degradation through chemical, biological, and photolytic processes.

Because of their persistence, POPs bioaccumulate with potential adverse impacts on human health and the effect of POPs on human and environmental health was discussed, with. Persistent organic pollutants (POPs) are a subset of PBT chemicals that have the potential for long-range transport involving soil, water, and air (Gouin, ; Muir et al., ).

The Stockholm Convention, adopted in and administered by the United Nations Environment Programme, is a global agreement to protect human health and the. Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) are a group of industrial chemicals that were manufactured through the s, at which point they were banned due to concerns about their adverse effects on humans and the environment, their enrichment in top predators, persistence, and long-range transport.

This book begins by reviewing the current framework of legislation for the regulation of chemicals in the UK and then. The resulting unified reference framework contains all the steps needed to conduct a complete risk assessment and management of contaminated soils, specifically addressing soil management, fate and transport of contaminants, measures of bioavailability, and risks to biological receptors from the presence of chemicals in soils.

This second edition handbook is an essential reference to those concerned with chemical synthesis, emissions, fate, persistence, long-range transport, bioaccumulation, exposure and biological effects of chemicals in the environment.
