ABSTRACT
This article reports on the delayed progress of the Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants (POP) in the U.S. chemical industry in 2006. In particular, there is disagreement on how the U.S. would implement decisions by the convention parties to add other chemicals to the original list of 12 banned pollutants--the so-called dirty dozen. Under the Gillmor bill, future chemicals targeted for elimination under the Stockholm convention would be evaluated for U.S. action on a cost/benefit basis.
