Understanding Low POPs Content in waste

Title: Understanding Low POPs Content in waste
Publication Type: Factsheets
Year of Publication: 2023

Abstract:The factsheet highlights about the POPs waste and low POPs content level in wastes. Currently there are set provisional Low POPs Content Levels for POPs already listed under Stockholm Convention for a longer time. Some of these “provisional” levels are not safe and do not meet requirements to protect health and environment. The fact sheet discusses this issue from an Indian perspective and the need for stringent regulation for POPs waste as they cannot be landfilled, reused, or recycled, because POPs content in that waste would also be recycled and thus would not stop this chemical pollution from entering the environment.
