Sources of Airborne PCB Congeners
Goal: Quantify the relationship between observed concentrations of PCBs in air, their specific sources, and the potential to reduce PCB exposure to sensitive populations.
Objective: Examine two major categories of airborne PCB sources: materials found in schools and homes; and highly contaminated waterways.
1) Develop novel passive sampling materials.
2) Identify specific sources in schools and homes.
3) Characterize emissions from contaminated waters nationwide.
Findings will provide strategies to remediation options that focus on reduction of exposure to PCBs and that are technically and economically practical.
