FUTURE BRIEF: Persistent organic pollutants: towards a POPs-free future

Posted by aclimaadmin | octubre 24, 2017 | Noticias del Sector

POPs: a persistent problem, pole to pole.

The majority of persistent organic pollutants (POPs) identified until now are banned or restricted around the world owing to concerns about their harm to ecosystems and human health. However, this is not the end of the story; even long-banned POPs still linger in the environment; others are still in use and are being directly emitted; and new POPs may be identified for which we have limited information. This Future Brief from Science for Environment Policy presents recent research into POPs’ potential impacts, the levels and future outlook for POPs in the environment and humans, and how we can reduce our use of POPs.
