This document includes a draft emission scenario document (ESD) on textilemanufacturing wool mills, submitted by Canada. This document is intended to provide dditional information about the published ESD on Textile Finishing Industry[ENV/JM/MONO(2004)12].
Emission estimation plays a key role in the risk assessments of chemical pollutants. Emission estimation methods are used to calculate emissions by both regulatory agencies and emitting facilities in OECD member countries. The purpose of regulatory agencies is to evaluate the risk of chemical pollutants to human health and the environment based on emission estimates: the evaluation is commonly facilitated with the use of Emission
This OECD Emission Scenario Document (ESD) is intended to provide information on the sources, use patterns and release pathways of chemicals used in the electronics industry, to assist in the estimation of releases of chemicals into the environment.
This OECD Emission Scenario Document (ESD) is intended to provide information on the sources, production processes, pathways and use patterns of chemicals used as additives in plastics to assist in the estimation of releases of chemicals to the environment.
This document contains the report of the OECD Workshop on Improving the Use of Monitoring Data in the Exposure Assessment of Industrial Chemicals, which took place in Berlin, Germany on 13th-15th May 1998. The Workshop was co-sponsored by the Federal Environment Ministry and Unweltbundesamt. Included in this report are the Workshop’s conclusions and recommendations, as well as texts from speakers at the opening plenary session and
This OECD Emission Scenario Document (ESD) is intended to provide information on the sources, use patterns and release pathways of chemicals used in automotive refinishing industry. The information can be used to estimate releases of chemicals to the environment.
This OECD Emission Scenario Document (ESD) is intended to provide information on the sources, use patterns and release pathways of chemicals used at kraft pulp mills, to assist in the estimation of releases of chemicals into the environment.
This ESD should be seen as a ‘living’ document, which provides the most updated information available. As such, an ESD can be updated to take account of changes and new information that becomes available.
This Emission Scenario Document (ESD) presents an approach to estimate the emissions of wood preservatives from two stages of their life cycle: 1) application and storage of treated wood prior to shipment, and 2) treated wood-in service. This ESD can be used in the estimation of concentrations in the environment of specific active substances used in wood preservatives.
This Guidance Document is addressed to those who are involved in risk assessment and management of chemicals called POPs (persistent organic pollutants) or PBTs (persistent and bio-accumulating toxics). It is about using multimedia models, i.e. generic evaluative models that can calculate overall environmental persistence (Pov) and potential for long-range transport (LTRP) covering multiple compartments such as air, water, sediment
