POPs Newsletter

The aim of this Newsletter

The aim of this newsletter is to disseminate information in a cost-effective way on the  developments taking place in the area of POPs as implicated in the Stockholm Convention and ther PTS of concern.
It will cover mainly the news on science and technology for disposal of obsolete stocks and remediation of POPs contamination which might be of interest for commercial exploitation both in developed and developing countries.
Special emphasis will be given to bio-remediation related technologies which will benefit developing countries.
The newsletter will not go into technical details of selected scientific publications but only highlight salient features for the benefit of the readers.

The Poznan Forum (organized by Plant Protection Institute of Poland and the International HCH and Pesticides Association recommended to come up with a small working group to promote bioremediation as a means of promoting green technology for cleaning of contaminated sites, which could specially benefit developing countries.

As a first step, a Newsletter was distributed to a network of interested parties. It will be available through links on related websites as well (for example the Home page of the Association of Former UN Industry and Development Experts (AFIDE).

The Newsletter is issued twice a year. The editor welcomes any information or small articles related to bioremediation of POPs and related areas for publication. We also prefer to include a calendar of events related to this topic taking place around the world, which would be of use to the readers. In addition, the Newsletter brings out to the attention of the readers about environment friendly technologies that have been commercialized or have potential for commercialization.

The Newsletter is a vehicle for bringing awareness to stakeholders related to the importance of green technology in decontamination of especially contaminated soils and water sources.  Success of the Newsletter depends very much on voluntary contributions from readers in terms of articles, news items and calendar of events related to bioremediation of POPs and other toxic and persistent pollutants.
