The replacement termiticides were as deadly to termites as chlordane
and heptachlor, but the little buggers could detect the replacements.
2: Mining the full EDN for diseases associated with bisphenol A (BPA), chlordane
and hexachlorobenzene (HCB) The number of diseases already known from the database to be associated with the chemical is shown, and the highest and lowest probabilistic scores are mentioned with the diseases.
develops and issues consumption advice for local, sport-caught fish species and 98% of all advisories in effect are triggered by mercury, PCBs, chlordane
, dioxins, and DDT (U.
This included the metals arsenic, lead and mercury, pesticides chlorpyrifos, permethrin and endosulfan, persistent organic pollutants dioxin, DDT, dieldrin and chlordane
and the food processing byproduct acrylamide.
Then they tested the samples in the lab for several types of legacy pesticides, including chlordane
and related chemical products such as heptachlor and breakdown products of chlordane
; lindane; aldrin and dieldrin; DDT and its degradation products (DDD and DDE); and mirex.
In addition to PCBs, IADN has traced combustion-related pollutants such as polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH), chlorinated pesticides like lindane, chlordane
, DDT, and, more recently, brominated and chlorinated fire retardants.
Endosulfan is an organochlorine pesticide as are DDT, dieldrin, and chlordane
The project will also reduce the amount of phosphorous entering Oxbow Lake which has been identified as impaired by algae, turbidity and chlordane
It prohibits and/or limits the production and use of twelve POPs: aldrin, chlordane
, dieldrin, endrin, heptachlor, hexachlorobenzene, mirex toxaphene, polychlorobiphenyls (PCBs), DDT, polychlorodibenzo-p-dioxins and polychlorodibenzofurans.
The Convention has so far included a list of 12 chemicals, such as the widely banned pesticides DDT and chlordane
Most advisories involve five primary contaminants--mercury, PCBs, chlordane
, dioxins and DDT.
The study concluded that carcinogens such as PCBs, DDT, chlordane
and toxaphene have largely leveled off or have begun declining in Arctic animals after years on the rise.
Those chemicals included dieldrin, DDT, polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), chlordane
, and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH).
Although worm activity can improve drainage on heavy soil, if casts are too numerous then a worm-killer, chlordane
, may have to be applied.
Cu, Pb, Sb, and Zn), as well as elevated chlordane
, PAH, and PCB concentrations for one of the two site clusters.
