STUDY OF CONTAMINATION AND MIGRATION POLYCHLORINATED BIPHENYLS IN THE ENVIRONMENT. BIOREMEDIATION OF CONTAMINATED SOILS AND ASSESSMENT OF THEIR IMPACT ON THE SERPUKHOV POPULATION HEALTH

Conference paper
Part of the NATO Science Series book series (NAIV, volume 76)

Abstract

According to the WHO data polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) are among twelve most dangerous and hardly decomposed environmental pollutants. Until recently they had been broadly used for the electro-technical and chemical industries because of extreme persistence in the environment. They cannot be decomposed photolytically, chemically, and biologically. However, polychlorbiphenyls are highly toxic, are accumulated in human organism and have carcinogenic effect.
