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


, : Estimation of the environmental hazard of organochlorines in pulp mill biosludge used as soil fertilizer. Chemosphere 27(1-3): 447-454

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.

Polychlorinated phenols (PCP), catechols (PCC), guaiacols (PCG), benzenes (PCBz), biphenyls (PCB), dibenzo-p-dioxins (PCDD) and dibenzofurans (PCDF) were analysed in flue gas, fly ash, grate ash and biosludge samples. Samples were collected from a...

Pulp-mill sludge is an industrial by-product with a high level of organic matter, which is eventually biodegradable. Since there are few alternatives for its practical use, its utilization as an agricultural fertilizer is proposed. An experiment w...
