The Legacy of Lindane HCH Isomer Production Published 2006
This report describes the various aspects of the production, management, formulation, storage and disposal of hexachlorocyclohexane (HCH) isomers with particular emphasis on the alpha, beta, delta and gamma (Lindane) isomers. The production of Lindane is inefficient as for each ton of Lindane 8-12 tons of isomers are produced. These isomers have ended mostly as hazardous waste which were wildly and uncontrolled dumped at many places in the world. Although attempts have been made to use these residuals for the production of TCB, HCl and other derivates most of the attempts have been unsuccessful. A global review has been made, in order to estimate the global amount of HCH-isomers.

Note: The CLU-IN Publications and Studio area only contains publications that are a sole or key source of information on a particular hazardous waste management problem. You may also visit the CLU-IN site-wide search engine to locate additional publications available through other areas of CLU-IN.
