Global PCB

Global historical PCB emission data

Contact: kbr@nilu.no

 

This web-page contains new estimates on the global atmospheric emissions for 22 PCB congeners from 1930 to 2100. 

Back to previous estimates.

The data are described in the following paper:

Breivik K, Sweetman A, Pacyna JM and Jones KC, 2007. Towards a global historical emission inventory for selected PCB congeners - a mass balance approach. 3. An update. Science of the Total Environment. Vol. 377 (2-3): 296-307.

Data for the 114 countries considered in the study have been gridded on a 1 x 1 basis, using population density as a surrogate. This has been done for each year simulated (from 1930 to 2100). Thus, each text file (in zipped format) contains data for all years on a latitude/longitude basis for each PCB congener, and the unit in all of files is tonnes.
For full details, please consult the paper mentioned above.
