The one’s noted here are the most prevalent, as some resist photo-oxidation, microbial (anaerobic and/or aerobic) degradation, and accumulate in agricultural soils. The German government, in their report to the UN on endocrine disruptors has identified all these chemicals as such, and also that residuals of these chemicals have been found in post-treated municipal fresh water, and posttreated municipal wastewater discharges in Europe and the former Soviet Republics. This primarily points to the failure of carbon absorption, ozone, microbial degradation, and chlorination to oxidize/reduce these compounds to their elemental state. In some cases, the post treatment actually makes the chemicals more harmful then they were previously. For the EOH2O technology, the carbon-hydrogen compounds we have denoted oxidation of are no less and no more difficult then the ones denoted by the UNEP.

The POPs are the most persistent as identified by the UN Environment Program, and represent a fraction of the literally hundreds of carbon-hydrogen based pesticides, fungicides, and herbicides that have been found in ground water, streams, rivers, and wells throughout Latin America, the former Soviet Republics, Africa, the United Kingdom, the United States, Central Europe, and all of Asia.
