In this study, ambient air samples from different atmospheric environments were examined for both PBDE and PCDD/F characteristics to verify that combustion is a significant PBDE emission source. The mean ± SD atmospheric PBDE concentrations were 165 ± 65.0 pg Nm(-3) in the heavy steel complex area and 93.9 ± 24.5 pg Nm(-3) in the metals complex areas, 4.7 and 2.7 times higher than that (35.3 ± 15.5 pg Nm(-3)) in the urban areas, respectively. The statistically high correlation (r=0.871, p<0.001… CONTINUE READING
