Emission Inventory for PFOS in China: Review of Past Methodologies and Suggestions

  title={Emission Inventory for PFOS in China: Review of Past Methodologies and Suggestions},
  author={Theodore Chao Lim and Bin Wang and Jun Huang and Shubo Deng and Gang Yu},
Perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS) is a persistent, bioaccumulative, and toxic chemical that has the potential for long-range transport in the environment. Its use in a wide variety of consumer products and industrial processes makes a detailed characterization of its emissions sources very challenging. These varied emissions sources all contribute to PFOS' existence within nearly all environmental media. Currently, China is the only country documented to still be producing PFOS, though there is… CONTINUE READING
