Status of PCB Management in North America

Description

Despite risks associated with polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), these toxics remain in use and continue to build up in the North American environment. In response, NAFTA countries are developing PCB management plans that, to various degrees, have begun to address public health concerns as well as environmental protection. This paper compares current regulations, inventories and disposal services in the three NAFTA countries in order to examine regional incentives and disincentives for PCB management.
