  • The Fate of Persistent Organic Pollutants in the Environment

    Persistent organic pollutants (POPs) are organic compounds of natural or anthropogenic origin that resist photolytic, chemical and biological degradation. They are characterized by low water solubility and high lipid solubility, resulting in bioaccumulation in fatty tissues of living organisms. These properties of unusual high persistence and ...

  • Persistent Organic Pollutants

    Since the mid 1990s, legal action to eliminate persistent organic pollutants (POPs) has started resulting in a global Convention on POPs, the Stockholm Convention, and a regional Protocol under the Convention on Long-Range Transboundary Air Pollution (UN-ECE LRTAP Convention). POPs are characterized by long half-lives, persistence in the ...

  • Dioxins and Health

    'This book deserves much praise. It assembles and presents an enormous amount of information in a very readable manner. Although each chapter is the product of different authors, the writing is surprisingly uniform....Dioxins and Health is an important and useful book that belongs in most institutional libraries, as well as in the libraries ...

  • The Fate of Persistent Organic Pollutants in the North Sea

    Persistent organic pollutants (POPs) are harmful to human health and to the environment. Their fate in the marine environment is not yet fully understood. An ocean model (FANTOM) has been developed to investigate the fate of selected POPs in the North Sea. The main focus of the model is on quantifying the distribution of POPs and their aquatic ...

  • Persistent Organic Pollutants

    Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs) continue to be the subject of concern amongst the public, as well as the scientific and policy-making communities. These concerns are exemplified by the international efforts co-ordinated by the United Nations' Environment Programme and the +Economic Commission for Europe. Whilst the ultimate origin of ...

  • Persistent Organic Pollutants in the Great Lakes

    The environment around the Laurentian Great Lakes region has been adversely affected by agricultural runoff, urban waste, industrial discharge, landfill leachate, and atmospheric deposition. Although there have been some improvements over the last 20 years, persistent toxic organic pollutants are now a serious problem. This book brings together ...

  • Novel Approaches for Bioremediation of Organic Pollution

    This volume presents an updated description of the current trends of research on bioremediation in the various aspects of catabolic pathways and specific enzymes, genetic design of engineered degradative microorganisms, bioaccessibility and bioavailability of substrates and nutrients and process development and field studies. ...
