Contamination by Organochlorine Pesticides from Rivers

by Center for Environment and Energy Research & Studies (CEERS)  (Jan. 1, 2007)

The contamination of organochlorine pesticides (OCPs) from the selected rivers in Okinawa Island was investigated to estimate the current status of pollution in water, plants and surface sediments in these rivers. The Aja River, Asato River, Houtoku River, Kokuba River and Okukubi River were selected for this study. The concentration of the total ...

Case Study of Petrox® Bioaugmentation to Remediate Pesticides in Ground Water to Part Per Trillion Concentrations

by CL Solutions, LLC  (May 24, 2010)

This case study of bioaugmentation demonstrates that Petrox bioaugmentation can achieve the very low remediation goals set for pesticides in ground water – quickly and cost effectively.  After three injections of Petrox®, the contaminant concentrations were reduced by 99% in less than 9 months.  Project highlights are:  ...

Bioremediation replaces “dig and dump” for treatment of pesticides in soil

Historical usage of organochlorine pesticides (OCPs) such as DDT, toxaphene and dieldrin has resulted in long-term soil contamination, because these substances typically do not degrade naturally at significant rates, so sites are still impacted decades after the end of application. For example, DDT use in Canada ended over 30 years ago, but ...

Cattle egrets as a biosentinels of persistent organic pollutants exposure

by NILU - The Norwegian Institute for Air Research  (May 14, 2014)

We investigated selected chlorinated pollutants (β-HCH, γ-HCH, DDDs, DDEs, o,p′-DDT, p,p′-DDT, heptachlor, aldrin, dieldrin, and endrin) in the Lahore and the Sialkot districts of Pakistan, using eggs of cattle egret (Bubulcus ibis) collected during May and June 2007. The pollutant with highest level and frequency was ...

Trends of Chlorinated Organic Contaminants in Great Lakes Trout and Walleye from 1970 to 1998

by Springer  (Nov. 18, 2005)

Abstract  Levels of chlorinated organic contaminants in predator fish have been monitored annually in each of the Great Lakes since the 1970s. This article updates earlier reports with data from 1991 to 1998 for lake trout (Salvelinus namaycush) and (Lake Erie only) walleye (Sander vitreus) to provide a record that now extends nearly 30 ...

Good intentions may result in bad health

by Tox Free Inc.  (Apr. 1, 2009)

President Obama’s stimulus investments in home energy efficiency may have the unintended consequence of increasing future medical costs. The stimulus bill contains $1500 tax credits for homeowners who install energy efficient doors, windows, and/or insulation. Studies in both the United States and England have shown that these home upgrades can ...

In Situ Chemical Reduction (ISCR) for removal of persistent pesticides; focus on kepone in tropical soils

The global use of organochlorine pesticides (OCPs) such as Kepone, Lindane, DDT, Dieldrin, Chlordane, and Toxaphene has resulted in long-term soil impacts at many sites. Given the potential risks to human health and the environment, some OCP-impacted sites require treatment. In certain cases, the “dig-and-dump” approach is not ...

Levels of organochlorine pesticides residues in meat

by Center for Environment and Energy Research & Studies (CEERS)  (Sep. 1, 2007)

Abstract: Concentrations of organochlorine pesticides (Lindane, Aldrin, Dieldrin, Endosulfan, DDT and DDE) residues in beef samples from the Kumasi and Buoho abattoirs in Ghana were determined using gas chromatography. Organochlorine residues were found in all the samples. The average concentration of lindane in beef fat samples from Kumasi was ...
