SVOCs are a broad group of moderate volatility substances which commonly contaminate water (surface water, drinking water, industrial water) that has been in close proximity to industrial activity or commercial waste.
SVOCs include many types of chemicals which exhibit a wide range of different chemical properties. Common SVOCs include:
- polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs)
- polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs)
- pesticides (organophosphorus, organochlorine, nitrogen-based)
- polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs)
- organotin compounds
- and dioxins
The chemicals are commonly used as:
- cleaning agents
- personal care products (PPCP)
- floor coverings
- electronic components
It is commonly accepted that SVOCs are environmental pollutants affecting human health and aquatic life in particular.
