Atmospheric PCBs were monitored around a site of stored used capacitors in a suburb of Bangkok, Thailand, from October 1991 to November 1992. Higher concentrations (820 ng/m3 on average) were observed near by the storage area compared to those at 5 m leeward side (570 ng/m3) while the capacitors were in the storage. After the capacitors were brought out from the storage, the concentrations decreased by approximately half and the compositions showed an enrichment of highly chlorinated congeners… CONTINUE READING
