Chemicals Branch is executing projects to further improve the Dioxin/Furan Toolkit. The projects are aimed for better coverage of developing country situations, i.e., to verify existing or generate new emission factors taking into account their specific situations. A further objective is to develop globally applicable approaches for the determination of emission factors and better characterization of the processes occurring world-wide. The projects are implemented with a view to include information as to the releases of PCB and HCB as unintentional POPs.
