This OECD Emission Scenario Document (ESD) is intended to provide information on the sources, use patterns and release pathways of chemicals used in the treatment of water in a number of areas to assist in the estimation of releases of chemicals to the environment.
This ESD covers the Industry Category 7 – leather processing industry. It describes the processes of the life cycle stage “industrial use” and the emission estimations to local surface waters. The stages “service life of article” and “disposal” are not covered and need to be added at a later date.

Guidance on reporting summary information on environmental, occupational and consumer exposure
This Guidance Document is addressed to those who are involved in risk assessment and management of chemicals called POPs (Persistant Organic Pollutants) or PBTs (Persistant and bio-accumulating toxics). It is about using mulimedia models, i.e. generic evaluative models that can calculate overall environmental persistence and potential for long-range transport coveing muliple comparments such as air, water, sediment and soil: what
This Guidance Document intends to provide an introduction to Emission Scenario Documents (ESDs) and thereby, to facilitate their development and use in Member countries and at the OECD level. It is also expected that this Guidance Document could ...
