ForensisGroup Persistent Organic Pollutant (POPs) Expert Witnesses are knowledgeable in these hazardous organic chemical compounds that are resistant to biodegradation and remain in the environment for a long time. POPs are toxic chemicals that adversely affect human health and the environment around the world.
While m any of the POPs included in the Stockholm Convention are no longer produced in the U.S., people can still be at risk from POPs that have persisted in the environment from unintentionally produced POPs that are released in the United States, from POPs that are released elsewhere and then transported here (e.g., by wind or water), or from both. The most frequently-seen POPs are organochlorine pesticides, such as DDT, industrial chemicals, most notably polychlorinated biphenyls (PCB), as well as unintentional by-products of many industrial processes, especially polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins (PCDD) and dibenzofurans (PCDF), commonly known as dioxins.
Bisphenol A (BPA) is not itself a persistent organic pollutant, but does act like a POP and is often grouped with POPs when environmental pollutants are examined.
