Estimation of the environmental hazard of organochlorines in pulp mill biosludge used as soil fertilizer


Chemosphere 27(1-3): 447-454
Estimation of the environmental hazard of organochlorines in pulp mill biosludge used as soil fertilizer
Contents of total organic chlorine and polychlorinated phenols, guaiacols, catechols, benzenes, cymenes, cymenenes, naphthalenes, toxic dibenzodioxins, toxic dibenzofurans, toxic PCB congener 77, alkylated dibenzofurans, alkylated bibenzyls and alkylated phenanthrenes in spent biosludges from activated sludge treatment plants of chlorobleaching kraft pulp mills are reported. Some estimations of hazard caused by these organochlorines to humans and wildlife from the use of biosludge as soil fertilizer are constructed and discussed.
