“To start with, the Stockholm Convention identified twelve top-priority POPs: eight pesticides (aldrin, chlordane, DDT, dieldrin, endrin, heptachlor, mirex, and toxaphene); two industrial chemicals (the hexachlorobenzenes (HCBs) and the polychlorinated biphenyls PCBs); and two groups of industrial by-products (dioxins and furans).”
“The St. Lawrence is one of the most polluted waterways in North America, with high levels of mirex, PCBs, DDT, and its derivatives.”
“� Consistent with the POPs agreement, which allows for some limited exemptions, Australia has lodged an exemption for mirex use.”
“A chemical named mirex was used in some of their products and contaminated the soil and sediment along the two creeks.”
‘mirex’ hasn't been added to any lists yet.
Looking for tweets for mirex.
