Since May 2009, alpha and beta HCH isomers and Lindane have become a POP. This was a vital decision in a global search for sustainable solutions of millions of tons of HCH waste isomers present on the globe.
Look at: HCH map
In this section we will report and inform on progress and projects being implemented on HCH-isomers and Lindane.
If you are involved in such projects, please report to us (john.vijgen(at)ihpa.info) so we can make link to your achievements and inform public accordingly.
2010-02-10: HCH map
This map is made to give an insight on the countries that have produced Lindane and have generated larger stockpiles of HCH-waste and the approximate amounts.
It must be stated that these data need further verification. They are all based on the IHPA report submitted to the Secretariat of the Stockholm Convention in 2006. It is expected that further investigations will generate more detailed information about locations and exact extent of the individual stockpiles.
Any information about stockpiles in the countries shown or other countries that might own HCH-stockpikes, can be forwarded to the Secretariat at john.vijgen(at)ihpa.info. Updates will be periodically included in the map.
