RIVM Rapport 710401003
This report contains data on chlorophenols concerning its sources and distribution pattern (soil, water, air, biota), the risks based on a careful consideration of exposure levels and toxic concentrations, the technical possibilities of reducing these risks and the financial consequences for the industries concerned of any measures to be taken. Chlorophenols are mainly brought into the environment via man (directly or indirectly). There is no industrial production of chlorophenols in the Netherlands. The damaging effects of chlorophenols to the environment has generally decreased in the past years. This decrease is the direct result of a sharp reduction of the use of chlorophenols in the last decennium.
