Abstract [en]

Chlorinated paraffins are currently under consideration for classification as POPs. They have been used for many decades, particularly in industrial lubricants and different building materials, but there is very little information available on their inventories in the technosphere and their emissions to the environment. In this study a chemical flow analysis was conducted for the city of Stockholm with the goals of estimating the current emissions of CPs to different environmental media. The results indicate that approximately 0.5 tonnes of CP are released to air and water in Stockholm annually, with paints and sealants being the major sources. The vast majority of the CPs are expected to end as solid waste, but there are uncertainties regarding their ongoing leakage into the environment.
