In this study, the contamination of soil by PCDD/Fs and other dioxin-like chemicals in the vicinity of Municipal Solid Waste Incinerators (MSWIs) and Hazardous Waste Incinerators (HWIs) is estimated by the XDS-CALUX bioassay. The resulting CALUX-TEQ value is compared with the WHO-TEQ value obtained from HRGC/HRMS analysis, in order to validate the CALUX bioassay as suitable screening method for PCDD/Fs determination of soil samples. The results show that the CALUX-TEQ and the WHO-TEQ values are… CONTINUE READING
