Biomonitoring Ivry-Paris 2021

The complexity of the chemical content of today’s household and industrial waste presents a challenge for turning modern waste into energy in (WtE) waste incinerators. Even with the application of the most developed air pollution control devices (APCD), it is still a huge challenge to eliminate the multitude of persistent organic pollutants (POPs) in waste incinerator residues and flue gases. The dynamics of combustion processes and the inevitable emissions of toxic substances of very high concern (SVHC) into the environment is the main topic of ongoing research worldwide. Even in the most remote areas of the world, such as the Arctic (marine environment), toxic chemicals are found, which have been transported huge distances from industry in other parts of the world. Because of the transboundary behavior of persistent organic pollutants, international treaties are required to regulate, mitigate or even eliminate toxic chemical emissions. Loopholes still exist in national and international regulations, resulting in an underestimated registration of POPs.
