Micropollutants and PCBs
Polychlorinated biphenyl (PCBs) were once widely used as dielectric and coolant fluids in electrical apparatuses, carbonless copy paper and in heat transfer fluids. Since the 1960s the use of these toxic chemicals has drastically reduced and have been banned all together in the United States since 1979. Many rivers and buildings are still contaminated with PCBs and they have been found in some food supplies.
